Looooong overdue post and some tunes

 I can't believe my last post was Oct 30th, 2013….that's two and a half months! I just wasn't feeling the blogging motivation through November and then was completely caught up in the holidays in December and January and the last couple of weeks I have been going crazy with lists and getting everything back in order. My house is slowly getting to where I want it to be. I've done the big things like completely going through everything in my walk in closet (that was a huge job), cleaning out my pantry (another big job) and about one million other things. I get a little high every time I cross something off my list…such a first born.
 I have two main lists going that don't include things like groceries etc….my monthly list that has things I want to get accomplished in the month of January for example, as well as a regular to do list. The monthly list has big things (steam clean carpets - done!, learn to use Photoshop Elements..etc..) and the regular list is really long and I have been attacking both with great relish. I'm feeling very good and very accomplished these days.
 I've been committed to making bread every Monday which is quite a bit of work but is just so much better than buying bread in the store, plus the house smells amazing. I've also been doing lots of other baking for Chris and the kids lunches…muffins, breads, cookies etc.. This is great for the lunches but the major downfall is then I eat it too. Not good for the waistline whatsoever. The holidays were rough, lots of eating and drinking and general merriment to the tune of a nine pound weight gain. Granted, I weighed myself after a big meal and just before bed so it was a "heavy" time and my next weigh in was down three pounds. Still…that's a six pound gain. That's a lot. I just can't seem to get myself on the weight loss train. Everything else I'm 100% motivated on but curbing the eating and serious cardio?? Not so much.  I'm hoping it will know…all on it's on…I'll just magically want to eat salad and run 5K every day…. yeah….I'll keep you posted on how that works out…
 So that's a little update on how I've been doing and feeling the last little while. I thought I'd share some of my current playlist with you as well, it's always easier to work on crossing those things off the old to do list with some good tunes playing in the background. Here's what I'm loving:

                                    Yin Yang by USS - probably my favourite at the moment.

Rude by Magic - so stuck in my head right now!

Timber by Pitbull (feat. Kesha) - this song just makes me want to dance

How I Feel by Flo Rida - Flo Rida can always be counted on for a good ear worm

Adore You by Miley Cyrus - This song slows it down a little and I love it.

Those are my tops favourites of the moment, hope you enjoy!

  1. Final post for awhile, I swear

    I have read posts in your blog. You are a yo-you dieter, but you are willing to try to make a change in life. I urge you to try what I said previously in my posts about the food. You might be accidentally starving yourself and not feeding your body enough calories. Yes, I read your blog post titles about juicing and your detox... tsk tsk tsk. Your baking looks wonderful, but what is that doing to your lifestyle? I'd try to find healthier options and experiment with them. I'm not trying to be rude, I just love weight loss and lifestyle changes and I have a large opinion on them and love to help people who are struggling.
