Today is weigh-in and I think I'm up... Not for lack of trying though!
I'll keep you all updated (on my weight loss/gain, and the baby!).
Only 1 more week of work before 2 weeks vacation!! yay!!

today's menu was basically the same as yesterday's up until dinner... then tonight i wanted breakfast for dinner so i had 2 pieces of pumpernickel bread (that dimplemeyer's kind or whatever it's called) and had it toasted with light PB and a tbsp of sugar free jam... then i also had a bowl of cereal and milk... and for dessert i just had yogurt (still living the exotiks flavours).
tonight i'm exhausted and don't know why... i think this waiting for the baby is exhausting for everyone... we keep hearing it's going to happen any moment now - and then nothing. poor michele is probably sick of people calling and checking on her... i'm trying to just leave her alone until i hear something.
i don't have anything exciting at all to report besides my treadmill success!
weigh-in is tomorrow... guess we'll see if it paid off. this is typically a week when i'm up in my weight (thank you GOD for making girls' weight fluctuate as much as our hormones!).
wish me luck!!!

Just thought I'd update
Nobody can COMPLAIN about my lack of updates, can they!?! (this means YOU... ALEX!).
I watched Breakfast television while i did it and they had a guest on talking about his restaurant... the lettuce eatery... they make all these custom salads. they did a few on the show and looked so good, it made me want to eat nothing but salads for the rest of my life!! i checked out the website but it doesn't have photos... doesn't do the salads justice. if you want to see for yourself just google the lettuce eatery. of course, they only have locations downtown (ugh!).
here's today's menu
breakfast - oatmeal with flaxseed, cinnamon, some splenda, grape nuts, and blueberries
snack - 3/4 cup multigrain LIFE cereal
- salad with 1pt cheese, chick peas, some chicken breast, tomatoes, cucumber, and a few pitted kalamata olives
- a container of fruit (watermelon, strawberry, kiwi, raspberries, and blueberries)
- garlic and hot pepper tuna (my homemade version)
PM snack - carrots
Dinner - yet to be decided. I think it will involve a chicken breast (maybe on a salad), some peas.... and not sure what else. i'll have to think of something though because i have to try to eat all my points today!
Have a great one!

Dad and his girls on father's day;Lucy, all nicely washed and WAXED (dad even helped me on father's day!);Chipmunk - chicklet's new nemesis. she's obsessed with chasing them at home. I call the saga "chicklet and the chipmunks" (although she thinks they're all squirrels). In max's absence Chicklet is carrying on the tradition of chasing away the squirrels.Michele - 1 week before her due date and ready to pop!
Jacob's first unofficial father's day;
Michele and Jacob on the swing that dad built. For those of you who don't recognize from photos - this is the arbour dad built them for their wedding...
i didn't make any new food discoveries this weekend... maybe i should make that my goal this week. try something new and point friendly! although frankly all i want lately is fruits, vegetables, and tuna (besides my burning sweet craving that is!!!). i guess my body is gearing up for the fruit and vegetable season that we all like to refer to as SUMMER!!
have a great week everyone!!

Luckily I DID get on the treadmill a few times.... and so far this week I'm back at it... hopefully I can at least maintain this week (historically i'm up the week before AND the week OF my period. too much info? sorry!)!!!
No baby news... Maybe it will happen on father's day... wouldn't that be nice? fathers day is also only 2 days before my parents 31st wedding anniversary... man, how am i supposed to top michele's gift to my parents this year? damn... i'm out of luck!!!
i'm starting to love red bull (sugar free).... i honestly find that when I drink it - i run faster and longer on the treadmill. the problem is it's freaking $3.50 to buy it!!! i got a few at shoppers today (20X the points day)... but i'm seriously considering treating myself to case of it and seeing if that helps my energy and treadmill efforts for a while.... i'll consider it over the weekend.
i'm heading home for father's day... only time will tell if we're celebrating in pontypool or in hamilton!!
happy weekend to all of you!!!!

This week (as in this weigh-in week) will be all about getting myself back into the treadmill routine - HARDCORE!
Alex and I aren't seeing each other tonight... he has a late meeting for work and by the time he gets home who knows what time it will be... maybe he'll come over.. but i'm working at SickKids tomorrow morning at 7:30... so our plan is to go out tomorrow evening (i'm hoping to see that new movie "knocked up"!).
Well, I think I'm going to leave work early today... so I'll sign off for now!! happy weekend!!
