It’s a Good Life

Look what arrived today!


That’s right!  I’m starting at the gym!  I managed to get an orientation session tomorrow even!  The gym I plan on going to the most isn’t able to offer me one until next week (after I missed it the other day) but I didn’t want to wait that long. I contemplated not having an orientation session at all, but decided I want to start off on the right foot and want to know my way around… so, I called around to different locations and low and behold – tomorrow night is orientation!  have I mentioned I’m nervous? My last gym experience (about 7 years ago) was NOT positive.

Today started out with a ‘naner wrap (well, AFTER a wheatgrass in POM shot of course). Flatout wrap (1), 1tbsp natural PB (2), 1 mashed banana (2)… and about 1tbsp of fibre 1 for crunch. Instead of leaving the banana whole, I mashed it up today. LOVED IT! It made such a difference. I loved it gooey!


I knew I had to go to an afternoon luncheon/meeting and I didn’t want to over indulge on food, so I had a snack before I left for the luncheon. I had 3/4c ff vanilla yogurt (2), 1/2tbsp oreo crumbs (1) and a little bit of fibre 1 to make it more filling (0)


Once we got to the venue for the luncheon there were fruit cocktail/punch drinks being served – I passed on them! I stuck to water!  There were also appetizers consisting of fried samosas, deep fried shrimp and different meats in phyllo pastry. I managed to AVOID all of them… despite how yummy they looked.  I even had to finally step away from everyone so I could avoid temptation… I went and sat at our table with my water.

Lunch was chicken (3), wild rice (3) and veggies (0)… also a salad with a drizzle of some dressing (2) and some goat cheese – YUM (3).

Dessert came and it was CHEESECAKE.  Did you know I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE cheesecake?  I ate about 2/3 of it and decided I should NOT eat any more (it was a small square… maybe 4 square inches).  In order to prevent myself from polishing it off, you know what I did? 


Later I came home and decided I better have a low point dinner.  Salad with 1/2c ff cottage cheese (1) and an egg white (0)… among other veggies.  Holy hannah was this a rocking salad!

And, I leave you with a couple of pictures of my hair… not very good pictures, but you get the idea anyway!  It held up okay in the rain today. 


And a picture from the front… but you really can’t tell from the front how long it is…

Good Luck, Good Luck, Good Luck!

I do the salt thing ALL the time! People always think I am nuts...I usually have to explain myself!

Though your picture on your blog is black and white, I totally pictured you more as a brunette. I was quite surprised. But I like the strawberry blond. And your pink sweater ;-)
