Day 150, 151 & 152

I wanted to start off by thanking everyone for the birthday wishes! My husband brought me home a wonderful arrangement of flowers...



These ones Rachelle got me!


It was an interesting birthday. I was alone until 7 when Chris & Rachelle finally got home. I had made a low fat shepherds pie. It ended up in the trash and I ended up eating yogurt and fruit for dinner.

We did got out for Thai and I forgot to take pictures. I was so hungry by then all I wanted was my food. The waitress was German with a great lack of English skills. I ended up getting sweet & sour pork. Needless to say I forgot it was deep fried and I didn't finish it. They do have a soup that I love beyond words and we will go back and I will remember to take pictures!

It was a little annoying that some Germans walked in about 15 minutes after us, had more people on there ticket and still received there food first. Guess that is what happens when you become the foreigner.

The scale is slowly moving in the right direction and I am so happy! I feel like I have been stuck in a rut since January.

I received a very cool birthday gift! I always like to use olive oil over the can spray but I feel like I end up with to much. Well look what my mom got me!



I can fill it with olive oil and spray away! Hopefully now I can get in my healthy oils without freaking out over the calories!

I am not going to lie but right now exercising has become a chore. I hate videos. I spend all morning and most of the afternoon talking myself into doing it. I know it shouldn't be that way but right now it is. I hope to snap out of this soon. I have come so far to throw it all away over videos. Hopefully we can get the car looked at this weekend. Oh how I miss the independence of the states and everything that comes with it.

I keep hearing that it is going to warm up but it has been windy, snowing and raining everyday. Oh how I want to walk outside again where it is warm. Maybe start running.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!!!

It's cold and windy in Southern Ontario today too, but I won't tell you the forecast for tomorrow! :) I LOVE Thai soup as well. We would eat it at the street stalls in Thailand...didn't get sick even once. Don't give up on exercise... you've got to make your situation work.

Never tried Thai soup. It sounds wonderful. I've never stuck with videos either but they're good in a pinch. I'll take the outdoors any day. Wish it would stop raining!

Wow, It sounds like you had quite the food fiasco. But those flowers are beautiful and that olive oil spray is a good idea.

That quote is so true...need to take action. I've been so tired lately with being pregnant. It takes double the effort to go and work out. Before I wouldn't even think twice...I'd do it and be done.

Hopefully it gets nice for you. The sun is shining here today and looks to be 60...a blessing for sure.
