She’ll never know that I’m the best that she’ll never have

I’m kind of sad that my vacation is over! I’ve got this weekend off and then it’s back to work. I didn’t get nearly as much done in my course as I had hoped.. which means I’m going to have to focus a lot more on that in the coming few months.. what was I thinking doing this?! lol. I know it’ll eventually be worth it though so I should just study hard.

Another not so great thing is that the public transit folks are still on strike so the commuting to and from work will still be a nightmare. But, I still have 2 days off so I’m not going to worry too much about next week for now. I’ll just deal with that as it happens.

I really need to get out and do groceries. My pantry & freezer are full but I’m almost out of fresh produce which sucks.

For breakfast I made a quick egg+cheese+english muffin. I would have loved some grapefruit with this but I had none left 😦

A couple of hours after breakfast I decided to go and workout. I got in 25 minutes on the treadmill doing run/jog intervals. I was aiming for 30 minutes but I lost my mental focus in those last 5 minutes and convinced myself to quit. I regretted it soon after because I totally could have finished those last 5 minutes! Last year I was running for 45 minutes straight so I know I can do it, I just need to stop doubting myself!  After the run I did 15 minutes of intervals on the bike, followed by 22 minutes of yoga and 15 minutes of abs. Followed by a nice HOT epsom salt bath.

And then I had lunch. Like I said, I’m low on produce.. so this burger was missing tomato, avocado, spinach, maybe some cucumber,  All it had was cheese, spicy mustard & ketchup, red onion and a veggie patty. Kind of lame but it still filled me up so that was good.

I had actually planned to go out and get some groceries this afternoon but we got a tiny snowstorm sort of, so I opted to stay in and do some cleaning and catch up on some stuff on the ti-faux.   

I did get hungry midafternoon so I got myself a small handful of nuts and a cheese string which totally hit the spot. I’ve noticed that my apetite increases so much when I put in a good workout.. which makes sense 😀

Dinner was simple, another meal to help get rid of more turkey. I cooked up some brocoli, onion & garlic, added turkey, soya sauce, black bean paste and sesame oil and served over spinach vermicelli. I then topped the whole thing with toasted sesame seeds. It was ok but I like the way I normally make this more, w/ celery and whole wheat macaroni.

Tonight I’m actually planning on setting my alarm so that I get up early tomorrow morning. I’m normally an early riser but this last week I’ve been getting up at 10am pretty much every day! A big change from my normal 7am and I find the days go too fast when I get up too late.

Another thing I forgot to mention in my last post, if anyone’s interest I did put up a ‘Weight Loss‘ page. It’s still a work in progress but it’s where I’ll be keeping track of how much weight/inches I’m losing as time goes by. I also decided to bite the bullet and throw on a couple of pictures. I’m a super shy person so this was kind of hard to do, especially since they’re pics of me at my heighest weight, but I need to let go and just put it out there.  I always love seeing pics on other blogs too so I couldn’t not put any up on mine.
