Happy Friday?? not so much for me!
Today is my last day at my job! I'm pretty sad but I think I'm hiding it well! I can't believe that I will be unemployed on Monday! This is sooooooo not like me! I've always been one to have like literally 3 jobs on the go! and now I don't have 1??? I'm pretty stressed out but I have an appointment at a recruitment agency on Monday and hopefully they'll be able to find me something soon! I've also applied to many company's and I guess it's just all a waiting game from here!

I've been OP All week!! I'm very happy about it and feeling good! Last night I went for a walk because it was sooo beautiful outside... I had to meet Ash at the bank so I took a huge detour and met him there... it was only about a 40 minute walk but still better then nothin right??

Tonight I babysit Charlie (for those of you that don't know he is a baby that I used to be a nanny for) I'm hoping that when I get there he will be fed and ready to go for a walk! they're house backs out on to trails and they are sooo peaceful and so great to get in a nice walk... If he isn't fed then we may not have time to go for a walk... I will put him to bed (@ bed time) and hop on their treadmill!

Other then that there isn't to much planned for the weekend.... I guess just some relaxing and job hunting! Hope everyone's doing great!!

Have a great weekend!!

hAppy hUmP dAy!

Good morning fellow bloggers! It's Wednesday, the sun is out and I'm feelin good!! LOL Honestly the Sun does wonders for me, I'm in a much better mood! I'm excited to get out and goin! and i think it helps a bit with motivation!

So I walked to the gym like I said I was going to (Sticking to the plan!) and when I got there I did some weights... I'm at GoodLife and they have a nice little set up... they have numbered some weight machines from 1 - 8 and kind of made it like a little circuit, on each machine it tells you what muscles you're working and they have pasted a little blurb/tip on them... apparently your supposed to do only one set of 8 - 12 reps on each machine to see any results... I did 2 sets of 12 reps on each machine, which took me 30minutes! I really feel it in my muscles this morning!! It's a great little workout!
After pumpin some iron, There were no treadmills left so I hopped on the last Elliptical that was left and had a nice 20 minute workout, I could have gone for longer but I hadn't eaten anything before I left to the gym and I was starving!! so I didn't want to push it, besides I still had to walk home!!

So to sum it all up
10 minute walk to the gym and 10 minute walk home = 20 minutes + weight machines 30 minutes + a great 20 minute Elliptical workout = AN AWESOME WORKOUT!!!!

Other then all that fun stuff I don't have to much going on, Sandra (my cousin) came over last night to watch the Biggest Loser Finale which was sooooooo good!! I'm soo happy Ali won!! wooooHoooo GIRL POWER!!!!

Tonight I will either go for a walk or to the gym I'm not 100% sure yet, it all depends on how nice the weather is and how I feel!

Hope your all having a wonderful day!!!

i lOve sPriNg!!!

I loVe this weather! its sooo beautiful! The mornings are still a bit chilly but afternoons are fantastic!!

So last night when I got home from work I was going to go to the gym but it was soooo pretty outside and I didn't feel like staying indoors! So instead of going to the gym I went for a 40 minute moderate walk!! It felt soo great! and I could really feel it in my legs.

Tonight I think I will walk to the gym which is only about a 10 minute walk, do some weights when I get there, and then hop on the treadmill ( I want to try a run / walk ) and then walk back home. Wish me luck!

I started a calender yesterday! I got the idea from a few other lady bloggers.... I will give myself a sticker for each day I am OP, so tracking and staying within my points and exercising... So I earned 1 sticker so far!

I feel really motivated! but shhhhhhhhh I don't want to jinx it! LOL! so I won't talk about it!

Hope you all have a great day! I hope I didn't loose all my readers do to being MIA... : (

But I think everything will work out!

I'm sOrry ladies I've been MIA! the job fair that I was organizing was on Monday and Tuesday so I have been working like 12 hour days!!! It was very successful! We had 57 different employers, 20 different community agencies and 4000+ job seekers come through in the 2 days!! It was awesome!! and very fun! So because we have been working so hard they gave us yesterday and today off! Yesterday I stayed in bed most of the day I was sooooo exhausted!!! and today I got up went to an appointment and now I'm trying to catch up on blogs and the boards!
I haven't been terribly bad but I haven't had the time to follow the 8 Healthy Guidelines! But I'm back on track! and ready to kick April in the ARSE!
I do have a NSV! I bought a nice linen blazer type thing from Dynamite and it was a LARGE!! not an EXTRA LARGE!! WooooOOooHoOooo!!! I also had a blouse from Jacob that I had bought last year and I thought was going to be to tight!! but it fit perfectly!!
Hope everyone is doing well!! Again I'm sorry for being MIA!
Time to catch up!!

tWo bOooOoo's iN oNe dAy!!

bOoooo #1 - I worked late last night (8:30am - 7:00pm) and wasn't able to go to the gym because by the time I was off work my cousin Sandra was already waiting for me.

bOoooo #2 - After work there wasn't anything good to eat at home, so Sandra and I went to Quizno's because if we had driven to Subway we would have missed our show (Biggest Loser) when I got home and calculated the points! it brought me to -6 for the day!!! remind you it took me about an hour to find NI online for Quiznos! NEVER GOING THERE AGAIN!! I could have eaten McDonald's for God's Sake!!! (which I don't like Thank God)

But anyway! It's getting busier and busier at work for those of you who don't know I'm co-ordinating a 2 day Job fair for my company which includes 60 different companies and 20 different community agencies! It's coming up next week on Monday and Tuesday! and let me tell you! I can't wait for this to be over and done with!!!

My plan is to go to the gym tonight no matter what! and to stay OP like I have been!

Have a great day my Lovelies!

Good morning!
I'd like to report that I, Jessie went to the gym last night! LOL I think I'm on a roll! I did a 1/2 hour "NewBody" Cardio class, I had never done it before and because if was only 1/2 hour long I figured I had nothin to loose... pffft! I sweat my a$$ Off!!! It was fun! I then jumped on the treadmill for 1/2 hour...
so I got an hour workout in. Not bad if you ask me!
I'll be doing weights tonight and then cardio.

Not much is going on at my end... I'm excited for Biggest Loser Tonight! It's getting sooooo Good!!! I love seeing all the progress! My cousin Sandra is coming over to watch it with me so we'll munch on popcorn! yummy!

Hope every ones having a great week!

iS it reAlly mOndaY??

Wow! this weekend flew by!!
I WI on Saturday instead of Friday and I was down 1.2!!!!! I was very excited! But still not in Onderland! because of my bad couple of weeks! Feels like I'm never going to get there!! Soooo Frustrating!!
This weekend was alright I didn't count much points but I know I didn't do horribly! So I'm back at the gym tonight and going to sweat away these couple of pounds that will take me into Onederland!
So even though our office is closed today my boss decided that our program should come in because we're pretty busy... So not fair! LOL
I have a crazy week ahead of me and hoping to also be able to get to the gym!
Hope everyone had a great Easter! Happy Monday!

2 dAys iN a Row!

I did it again!! I went to the gym last night!! I'm on a roll people! I feel great!
I did the elliptical for about 35 minutes, and then the treadmill for 30 minutes... I was sweating like crazy but it felt fantastic!
After some discussion with some of the ladies on the boards last night I'm going to incorporate more weights into my workout routine... apparently if you do weights before cardio you burn a lot more calories... who woulda thunk?
So its the long weekend and I'm very excited to be off for the next few days. I don't have to much planned other then some family time on Sunday! I think I picked the wrong week to get back on the wagon, so many Easter Treats and the gym is closed... Well I'll manage and try my best.
Hope everyone was a wonderful weekend! Thanks again for all the motivation ladies! You guys are the best!!

dRum rOll pleAse........

..................... I DID IT!!!!!! I went to the gym last night!!!!! I couldn't let you guys down!!! (or Stacie that is! LOL) I dragged myself to the gym, when I got there I dragged myself up the stairs to the changing room, well when you get to the changing room there's no turning back!! LOL
My plan was to do about 1/2 hour on the elliptical and then about half hour on the treadmill....
The gym was sooooo packed! I was lucky to have found one elliptical free and calling my name.... so 1/2 hour came and went and there were still no treadmills available so I kept on going! I did 45 minutes on the elliptical burned 550 Cal's. and then did some weight machines for 1/2 hour!!

Gym membership = $30/month
Gym shoes = $130
Gym attire = $40
Sweating like a maniac and feeling AMAZING afterwards!!!! = priceless!

So needless to say I'm going back tonight! NO MATTER WHAT!!!! I loved the way I felt after my workout and then tracking it and seeing 9AP's on my Points Tracker!!! What a great feeling!!!

Thank you for your motivation!!!
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!!

Tuesday, March 18, 2008


So I've fallen wayyyy off the wagon!! I thought there was no hope! but I've given myself a pep talk and have decided that I want this more then anything!! I'm starting fresh!!
How many times in ones life can one do this to herself!!
I wake up and think about my weight I think about it most of the day and even before I go to sleep!! So why is it soooo hard????
Weight issues has been with me all my life!! I just want to crawl in a hole when I think about my weight!! It's so hard for me to keep motivated!! But why should it be hard?? I feel so gross about myself and I just cant get it together!!!
So here's to starting fresh!! I packed my lunch and snacks! And I'm also pushing myself to go to the gym tonight!! no ands, ifs, or buts!!!
I'm kicking this weight to the curb no matter what!!!!
That's the end of my Rant!

Is it fRidAy yeT??

SO another weekend gone! And I'm already looking forward to the next weekend!!! LOL I don't think I've seen this much snow in my life!!!
I had a good weekend it was relaxing and fun! we went over to Ash's brother's house Saturday and it kept snowing and snowing so we slept over there... My weekend was filled with horrible food choices but when I stepped on the scale this morning to have a sneak peak since I didn't WI on Friday due to TOM I was down!! I was very excited and felt extra motivated!
I packed my breakfast, lunch and snacks for work and so far so good! I feel hungry though which I often feel on Mondays but I think I'll be OK!
I don't have to much going on this week same old, same old... I'm just hoping it stops SNOWING! it's getting a bit annoying now and I'm soooooo ready for summer! well except for the fact that I haven't lost as much weight as I wanted to for summer so lucky for me its still winter gear season! LOL!
I hope everyone's doing great, I'm on lunch now so I'll be checking out everyone's blog!

No WI ThiS weEk!

I've made the executive decision to not WI this week! I'm so bloated and have been eating so much junk that there is no way that I'm going to torture myself over the numbers on the scale! I will wait until next week when TOM is long gone and I'm back to my good old self! LOL

This week has been soooo long! I'm so excited that its Friday! Although we're getting a huge storm tonight and Saturday it goes great with my fun filled relaxing weekend! We don't have anything planned we will be playing video games and watching Movies all weekend! We also have Dinner with Ash's Family on Sunday for his youngest brother's birthday!

Did I tell you guys about my missing necklace?? We'll its the necklace that Ash bought me last year for Valentines Day it's so pretty and very special to me! Well I lost it about a month ago! I was soooo upset and we searched EVERYWHERE for it including the vacuum! So I got a call from my sister a couple of days ago and after all this time she found it on the driveway!!!! I was soooooooooooo HAPPY!!!!!!!!! it has a little speck of rust on it but I told Ash it was OK because it tells a story!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

sNow DaY! WooOoHoOoo!!

It's a snow Day here which means our office is closed! so I got to sleep in a bit relax and now I actually have time to post!! It's been so crazy here on my end!
I've been OP but because of TOM coming to visit soon I'm so bloated and feel like eating ONLY chocolate! it's weird because I'm not usually like this! but the break outs on my face are evidence of cheating and binging on chocolate!
I feel so unmotivated these days! I'm so tired when I get off work, I can literally hear my bed calling me and saying "go to the gym tomorrow Jessie... come snuggle with me!!" I swear it says that! and I don't want to upset it! LOL
Nothing much is going on I was praying for a snow storm actually just to get a day off! I needed this day to chill out watch TV do some laundry...
Hope all you bloggers are doing great I finally have a chance to catch up on your blogs!
Have a great snow day!!!

cLoSee.... bUt nO ciGar!

First things first! I didn't get to my Onederland goal! I did however go down .8 which is ok... I was hoping for more but oh well! like Jamie Lynn said, I'll get to Onederland next week!(Thank you) slow and steady wins the race! I like the little motivational quote that WW gave me when I tracked my weight this morning “Feel pride in how far you’ve come and confidence in where you’re going.” I do feel proud! I feel proud for being OP since the beginning of January!! that's almost 2 months!!! And I'm confident that I will stick to it! in case none of you know ThiS yeAr iS mY yeAr!! LOL
I hear a little voice in my head saying "think about how upset you'll feel when summer time comes and you can't feel comfortable in a tank top... keep going Jessie! You can do itttttt!!!"

This weekend is kind of busy, I babysit Charlie tonight! I cant wait! I haven't seen him in a few months! for those of you that don't know, I was Charlies Nanny for the summer up until December! he's the cutest baby ever! if he was my baby I'd post a pic... but he's not my baby, you'll just have to take my word! tomorrow, Ash and I are taking a drive to Cambridge to pick up a phone from my cousin and hang out with them for a bit and then we have a date in the evening Dinner and a movie....or Dinner and Bowling!! haven't decided yet....and then I work on Sunday!

Anyway I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

thuRsdAy's RamBle...

I'm calling it a Ramble because I don't have much to report...
I've been OP all week! I've only went to the gym once this week because I have a stupid paper due tonight so I've been working on it all week! However I've been trying to get some exercise in by doing other things like stairs and parking far and running around! Hopefully this will help with my WI tomorrow... I had a sneak Peak at the scale this morning and it wasn't in Onederland but it was down! Lets hope It'll go even more down by tomorrow...
I have school tonight!! Blaaahhhhh It's so cold outside I just want to go home and snuggle with my pillows in bed!
NSV for me today! I walked in to work this morning, took off my jacket and my supervisor said "geez Jessie, you can really tell where your losing weight!!" I was soooooo happy and told her that I loved her! I'm also bringing her a coffee tomorrow! LOL
Hope every ones having a great day! I've been so busy at work that I haven't been able to post, I figured since its a little quiet right now I'd update you guys on whats going on!
Thank you all for you motivating comments! your all the BEST!!

I was chanting this on the elliptical in my head last night... that's right I said elliptical! I WENT TO THE GYMMMM!!!! finally I got my butt back there and it was one haaaaaarrrrd workout!!! it sucks that I haven't gone in so long because now I feel like I'm starting alllllll over again!! so I only did 20 minutes of hard core elliptical and then I did a nice moderate walk on the treadmill! It felt great! and I plan to go back tonight....

I hopped on the scale this morning and I was down! not in Onederland yet but hope fully by Friday (my WI) I'll be there!

Sunday, February 24, 2008


Last night I was on my way home from Ash's at around 6:30 PM (he was going out with his friends) I got a phone call from my Aunt asking me if I wanted 2 tickets to the Leaf game!!!! I was a little confused, because this never happens to me! So I asked... whens the game?? how much are the tickets??? and who am I going with?? this is what she tells me... "your going downtown RIGHT now, the game is in an hour, you don't have to pay a thing and you can bring Ash with you!!!!!!" I was soooo excited I called Ash told him to cancel his plans and I picked him up, we headed downtown, met up with my aunts boyfriend (I like to call him SHHHVuNcle! = Should've been my uncle) picked up the tickets and went to the game!!! Leafs won 3-1... Our seats were in the 100th section, behind the net!!! (the seats were amazing!!!!!) it was an awesome game!! soo GO LEAFS GO!!

This weekend has been OK for being OP I haven't splurged to much, and every things counted for so I feel great... I stepped on the scale this morning and I was down 1 pound... lets see if it goes even further down this week!! My goal is to be in ONEderland this week!

On Friday I posted a vent on the GDT about my co-worker who isn't pulling his weight at work and us having to pick up his slack... I was really upset and even more upset when I got some really snarky and rude comments from people... It's just so annoying that these people just sit there and wait to put people down on their threads.... I like to go by the rule... "if you don't got nothin nice to say, then don't say nothin" It's just ridiculous and very high school like... but oh well "se la vie"

Anyway... I'm working today (boooooo) I have a paper due on Thursday and I haven't read the book yet! so I'm off to start that now!! Hope everyones having a great Sunday!!!

Friday, February 22, 2008

It's fRidAy!!!!!

Ok so I was soooooo tired this morning, you know those mornings when you wake up and it felt like you've only slept for 2 minutes?? I had one of those, I just wanted to stay in my cozy bed all day and sleep!! but then I realised it's FRIDAY!!! So I jumped out of bed (O.k maybe I rolled out of bed) and hopped on the scale and I was down .6!! Ok maybe .6 isn't the greatest loss ever, BUT I'm happy with the loss and I know what I need to do! Thanks for the kick in the ARSE guys! I need to get back to the gym! So I plan on dragging myself to the gym after work and also tomorrow morning! I wanna be in OnedeRlAnd this week!!! thats my goal!

X-Box 360 News.... I bought Guitar HERO!!!!!!!!!! I'm sooooooo excited!! my cousin payed for half of it as a birthday gift which was really cool! and then we Rocked on!!! The coolest part is that because I have X-Box 360 you can play guitar hero LIVE! so with other people!! its crazzzy!

We don't have much going on this weekend Ash works tommorrow and I work Sunday! so we're probably just going to lay low and play video games all weekend! (Can you believe I'm 26???) LOL...

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Thursday, February 21, 2008

i gOt mY X-Box 360!!

booooooooooooooyahhhh!! I finally got my X-Box last night! I'm super excited! I was supposed to get a Wii but I couldn't find it anywhere and I became addicted to Ash's X-Box 360 so I went out and bought one with my birthday money! I found a great deal at Rogers and I put it on hold yesterday morning! and Ash and I went to pick it up! yay!!
Other then that exciting news! Nothing else much is going on! I'm still OP but I feel like I'm losing motivation! not on the food part but the working out part! I cant get myself to go to the gym at night or after work because I'm jsut sooooo exhausted! It's tooo cold to go for walks and I'm just not sure what else I can do! I need a kick in the ARSE!
Anyway back to work! It's gotten really crazy around here! boooooooo! LOL
Hope everyones doing well!

Wednesday, February 20, 2008

I'm OP!

All day yesterday I was OP!!! yay ME!!
I've planned my meals for today and plan to be OP all day!
LAst night I was supposed to go to the gym but Ash and I had to go to the bank and then I had a meeting with an AVON rep. so I wasn't able to get to the gym! however I popped in a "Walk away the pounds" work out tape and did a short but sweet 1 mile walk...
I definitely plan to go to the gym tonight after work!
So yea, I'm an AVON rep. not sure how I feel about it but we'll see how it goes... I have tons of ladies here at work that are excited for it and also my friends and family are interested in it... I'm just trying to make some extra cash and hopefully this will help!
I LOVVVVVED BLC last night!! it was sooo great! And I'm so happy that Paul got kicked off! he didn't deserve to be there!! he needed to be there probably the most due to health problems but did you see how bad he ate when he went home??? Holy geez! I'm a big fan of the Black team but I gotta say the Blue team rocked that WI last night!!!
Anyway off to do some work!
I'll be posting some pics of the Breast Cancer Fundraiser! So look out for them!!

Tuesday, February 19, 2008

WeiGht wAtCherS... wHat???

Oh man since my 1lb gain on Friday things have just gone down hill!!! I have not been OP AT ALL!!!
This weekend was really busy!
My sister and cousin took me out to dinner and a movie on friday night (@ "Demitris" which consisted of a sandwhich and then a huge chocolate ice cream/fudge brownie crepe mmmmmmmmmm.... ) then saturday we had that Breast cancer dinner and dance! Which wasn't so bad but for some reason on Sunday Ash convinced me to eat McDonalds! which I hate! and didn't even enjoy!! and then Family Day came along and we did nothing but play video games and munch on snacks!!
But today is a new day!! No more Birthdays coming up or occasions so hear we go again!! back oon track!!
My motivation: Seeing the pics from Saturday at the fundraiser and not being impressed!!! :(

Hope everyones doing better then me!!

nOt a gOod dAy!

Ash and I got into a HUGE fight yesterday!! and I'm soooo frustrated! I feel like we keep doing this and it scares me! Unlike some people that eat when they're upset I don't eat, I feel sick to my stomache and my nerves take the best of me!
The weekend was good I didn't binge on anything to crazy like I usually do on the weekends! I was pretty good, although I didn't track anything for sunday I still feel like I did alright!
I'm hoping to go to the gym tonight (depending how I feel)!
Tomorrows my Birthday! and I just feel sooo blahh!
Thats my vent! Happy Monday!

boOooOo tO wOrkiNG on a SuNday!

I know I know, how can you be working on a sunday!?? The thing is, my boss has helped me so much in the past and I just cant say no to him! he was stuck for today and the next few Sundays so I agreed to work! It's not like I'm doing much! I basically had to come to the office unlock the door for teens taking Drivers Ed and sit here online all day and do nothing! I would just rather be in my bed! I'm sooo sleepy!

The weekend so far has been good! just been relaxing! I made a great breakfast yesterday morning for me and DBF, Grilled cheese, eggs and fruit! it was so yummy! and I also did pretty well for the rest of the day considering it was Saturday and thats when I usually slack the most!

Have any of you watched "Juno" yet? if you haven't you must go see it! It's my new favorite!! a friend of ours has a burnt copy of it and leant it to us! It is soooooo cute!

This week I plan to get back to the gym, my broncitis is pretty much gone and my parents are back home from vacation which means I don't have to worry about leaving my grandmother at home alone (she lives with us, and is way to cute! and 83 years old, I just don't like to leave her by herself) so my schedule should get back to normal and hopfully I can see OnederLand this week!!! Wish me Luck!

Friday, February 8, 2008

It'S fRidAy!!!!!!!!

Thank God! What a busy week!
I had my WI this morning and I'm down .2 which is good by me! considering I got a visit from my friend "TOM" last night! blahhh I have horrible cramps!
I was surprised to see the numbers on the scale this morning I thought for sure I had gained due to my TOM and the fact that I only got about 4 AP's in all week!
This week I'm definitly going to step it up and get back to the gym, my cough has cleared up a lot and I'm feeling better!
For the weekend I plan to do NOTHING! Ash is coming over tonight and we plan on beating the game we're addicted to for XBOX 360 (Hitman) and we also plan on watching movies all weekend... we're both broke and exhausted!
HAppy Friday!

I don't think I've seen this snow in years!!! It’s crazy! The good news is... I've been OP all week! The bad news is.... I haven't gone to the gym!
I finally went back to the Doctor on Tuesday and I have Bronchitis!! Which means I didn't want to go to the gym and cough up a lung... but I did manage to get some AP's shoveling snow yesterday, this morning and probably this evening! Man I miss my dad! lol lucky him he's relaxing on a beach and not outside in the freezing cold shoveling our driveway!
I've been feeling good about my eating, tomorrow's my WI although TOM is coming to visit anytime now I'm hoping to either STS or have a loss...
I've been feeling a bit down about money, I have so much stuff to pay for and not enough money! My job pays really well but it just never seems enough! I'm definitely in the minus's and cant seem to get out of it! This morning I almost had a heart attack when I didn't have enough money to pay for my gas! I used my credit card (which is almost maxed out) and told the person at the register that my debit card has been acting funny! (How embarrassing!!) Oh well hopefully I'll just win the Lottery! lol Wouldn't that be nice!
Anyway off to eat some lunch!

HorRibLe WeeKeNd!!

So this weekend no rules applied to being OP!!! I made the worst decisions ever including Harveys, Chocolate, Desserts!, and on and on and on! I dont know what the heck happened! I was just craving all of this stuff! the worst part is, everytime I ate something bad, I felt sooooo gross! I don't know why I did this to myself!!
But I'm moving on! in the past I would let this kill me and I'd give up completly, but I came packed to work with tons of fruits, veggies, water and great choices! I plan to go to the gym after work and getting a bunch of AP's!
Lets see how it goes!

wOooOooHoOoo!!! dOwn @ WI tOdaY!!!

So I'm down 1.6!!! I'm thrilled with this loss! I've been OP for a while now and it's really working! I'm down a total of 5 pounds! It's funny cause in the past when I wasn't really working the program, a 1.6 loss would not satisfy me at all! I would be upset and just give up because it was too slow!! But now that I'm actually working the program I'm so happy to see this kind of loss!

My office was closed today due to the snow storm! So I get to stay home!! I'm very excited to be able to lounge all day and do nothing but nap and watch movies... I think I'll try and get some AP's while shoveling the driveway... not sure if the gym will be open and really I hate driving in this kind of weather!

This weekend I don't have to much going on we're just going to relax and not do to much... my parents are leaving to Cuba on Sunday and i'll be driving them to the airport... and of course trying to sneak into their luggage! I need a vacation soooo bad! Ash and I were thinking of going away somewhere in March or April.... we'll see how that goes....

Anyway! off to bed for nap #1...

aNotHeR bUsy dAy!

wOw! Today was so hectic at work I didnt even get a chance to post!! I also didn't go to school tonight because I got off work late and I was tooo tired to face the nasty traffic on the 401!

I also haven't gone to the gym since Tuesday!!! boooooo I've been sick though with a nasty cough and I dont want to push it... tomorrows my 3rd WI I wonder if not going to the gym will effect the scale negatively! I really hope not! It's funny though, I haven't gone to the gym and I feel horrible about it! It's like my body is craving the excercise... Never thought I'd feel that way! I'll definitly be going to the gym tomorrow night and probably be doing some cardio and a Pump class (my new fav. class)

I cant believe tomorrows Friday already! this week FLEW by!!! But thats definitly fine by me! Anyway, my cousins coming over with her Wii! gotta go get ready!

MoRniNg yA'll

Another busy day ahead of me! I can' believe its the end of January! Time is flying soooo fast! and my birthdays coming up! (Feb. 12)
Last night I went to the gym and we decided to give the classes a rest for a little bit! I really had to push myself to go because I wasn't feeling very well... but after a hard core 1/2 hour on the elliptical, a nice moderate 1/2 hour on the treadmill and a whole lota sweat! I was glad I went! I felt better afterwords!
Today I'm going for lunch with all the staff at the old program that I was working with, I worked there for 4 and a half years and the program ended a couple of weeks ago so it'll be a goodbye lunch :( the bad news is, the restaurant we're going to (Louisiana's) doesn't have Nutrition Information!!! so I'm not sure what I'll order.
Watched Biggest Loser tonight! it was so sad that Maggie's friend left! That's to bad, I really thought the Black team would have had a great WI! Anyone else think the teams are unfair?? the Blue team has 5 men! of course their WI's are going to be huge!
Anyway! Gotta get some work done!

i'M gEttiNg siCk.... AgAin!!!

I don't know how its possible to get sick twice in the same month! But I'm proof it actually does happen! I'm coming down with a cold but I've loaded up on Buckley's and Fisherman's Friend! I went in to see my Doctor this morning and he sent me to get a chest X-ray done! I'll be doing that after work! I hope everything is OK...
Besides all that I went to the gym last night, met up with Christina and we did a Body Flow Class (yoga) and a Body Jam (Dance) class... The Yoga was awesome! remind you I haven't done yoga in a very long time so some of the moves were quite tricky! And the dance class was hilarious! you should see some of the moves we were all trying to pull off!! The instructor made it look so easy!! and good... Christina and I couldn't stop laughing! I don't think we'll be doing that class again it was way too funny!
Today is my 21st day OP!!!! this is awesome! I'm really proud of myself and I'm actually feeling really good! Who woulda thunk? lol
Anyway, off to start my long busy day!

i hAte mOndAys!

Another weekend past and now its Monday again!
Mondays are the hardest days for me to get out of bed! I wish we had a long weekend every weekend! They go way to fast!
I had a pretty good weekend! 27 Dresses is sooooo cute! but to tell you the truth I liked
P.S. I Love you, better! (another chick flick) P.S I love you is one of my Favorite books! the book in my opinion is always better then the movie but this movie was actually pretty good. if you haven't read this book RUN to chapters and buy it!!! it is sooo good!!
Besides the movie I got to spend time with my cousin and with Ash! Ash and I took it upon ourselves to do absolutely nothing on Sunday! we actually stayed in our pj's all day and watched FRIENDS! (I've been collecting the series) it was so relaxing and it felt good!
As per being OP.... I did Body Pump again on Friday night along with 1/2 hour of cardio and Saturday Morning I got about 45 minutes of Cardio in at the gym... I tracked everything on Saturday but had a hard time on Sunday because the Internet was down. I did pretty good though, I did have pizza on Saturday but tracked it and was pretty good for the remainder of the weekend...
Anyway enough blabbing! I'm off to start my day at work :(
Happy Monday to you all!

Well thank God its Friday!! What a busy week!
Friday's are my WI days... So I stepped on the scale this morning expecting to see the same numbers as yesterday (up 2 pounds) but to my surprise I lost those 2 pounds and stayed the same weight as last week! hey it's not a loss, but its also not a gain!! Which is fine by me!! hopefully I'll have a good loss next week...
So tonight I'm doing another Pump class. I'm brave, I know! after struggling to walk all week because of this class I'm going to torture my legs again and start all over with the pain! So I'm meeting Christina (one of my best friends) 45 minutes before the class, getting some cardio on the elliptical and then heading to pump some iron! lol
I don't have to much planned for the weekend... Friday nights are usually my "girls" nights and DBF hangs out with his "Boys" so Sandra (my cousin) and I are going to watch 27 Dresses! and tomorrow during the day I'm hanging out with my other cousin and her baby girl (5 months) and then not to sure what else!
Weekends are the hardest for me for staying on plan, luckily I have all my flex points and I'll definitely be tracking everything!
Have a great weekend!!

kiNda diSaPpoiNted!

So this morning I stepped on the scale to have a peak before tomorrows official WI and I was very disappointed to see that I was up 2 pounds! I don't understand why!! I have been totally OP all week and have been working my butt off! My mom thinks it might be muscle weight but I'm not totally convinced on that!!!

I went to the gym last night I needed to be pushed because I was just sooo exhausted but I had a great work out on the Elliptical and Treadmill!

Do you ever feel like there aren't enough hours in the day??? That's how I've been feeling lately! I get off work at 4:30 go home have a snack and head to the gym by the time I get home I have dinner and feel soo drained! Poor Ash (DBF) has to hang out with an over tired girlfriend all the time! lol

I have school tonight! booooooooo For those of you that don't know I'm at York University Part time (1 night a week) working towards a BA so that I can get into teachers college! I really hate school and I wish that I can get into teachers college with experience instead of schooling... I'm more of a hands on type of girl! I was in college for 3 years and got my Child and Youth Worker diploma but after working in the field for a while I decided that I'd love to be an elementary school teacher! ughh! which meant I had to go to Uni.

Anyway enough blabbing! Gotta get to work!

bUsy! BuSy! bUsY!!!

Wow things have gotten busy around here! I started a new position at work it'll just be for a few months but we're organizing a huge project for the end of March! I share an office with 3 other people luckily 3 out of 4 of us are counting points! which makes things a lot easier!

Last night I went to the gym again we tried another New Release class called "Combat" ohhhh boyyy was it hard! I actually ended up leaving it half way through because it was too fast paced for me and my legs were still very sore from the day before. I jumped on the tredmill though and had a nice moderate walk...

Anyone watch Biggest Loser last night? this is one of my favorite shows right now! I can't believe how much these people work out! it's insane! I joined the WW version of BLC Challenge and I'm on the AQUA team! our stats are outstanding! GOOOO TEAM AQUA!!

My firSt pOst...

Ok so I've been reading some other peoples blogs and decided that this might be a great thing for me... So I think I'll try it out and see how it goes...
I'm Jessie I'm 25 years old and I have been on and off WW for years and I've decided that 2008 is my year! so far so goood and I hope to continue the journey!I've struggled with my weight all my life and I've decided to change that this year! I want to stop thinking about how gross I feel and start doing something about it! I have all the support a girl can ever ask for and I'm very excited to do this once and for all!
Last night I had a date with one of my best friends at the gym! We did a Body Pump class and it was fantastic except for today I'm really sore! I took a nice bubble bath after the gym hoping that it would help this morning but it didn't! to tell you the truth I love the soreness! it justifies a great workout!
