Thirsty Thursday!

Alright so the blog "went live" last night! How exciting! No followers, no comments... I won't pretend I am not a little bit hurt! Ha ha! Just kidding (mostly).
I began going to the gym about 6 weeks ago. I have been consistent in going 4-5 days a week. Usually I attend the 5:30pm spin class, sometimes the bodypump class and occasionally work out on my own. All that being said, I have not seen huge results. I have lost a couple pounds, however nothing to brag about. So today I did something I have never done before...

Yes that is correct... I set my alarm last night for 4:10am to get my butt out of bed and head to the gym. My reasoning (other than I am crazy), is that I have been having trouble going in the evenings since the weather has started to change. When I finished work yesterday, I picked up Kaylee and the sun was shinning and she said "Mummy, can we play soccer outside today?" It may have sounded more like "Mummy, can we pay socca outside now!" however, I digress. I had intended to go to the gym, but how can I turn down that sweet little face. So, I didn't. We played in the backyard with the dogs, laughing and enjoying the weather. Feeling guilty, I decided to make a change and try going to the gym before work.

"Leave me alone Mummy"
 Here is what I can say about it. 4:10am in my warm and comfy bed, hearing that alarm sucked.. Changing in the kitchen as quietly as I could so I did not wake the household.. That too sucked... Arriving at the gym to find 2 cars there... Awesome. Finishing a workout by 5:30.. AWESOME! Having a work out, shower, a load of laundry done and ready for work by 6am! Well damn... I felt like a super star!
I woke the little miss up to get ready for the day. Needless to say she wasn't too impressed. For a kid that never sleeps past 7am, she sure hates to be woken up at 6am. This is the look I received this morning. 

It takes her about 15 minutes to come around but when she does, she is the cutest friggen thing in the world!!! I said "Kaylee, do you want to go to daycare today?" to which she responds "Ya Mommy! I can't wait!". What a great feeling to know your little one is that happy to go to daycare! I tell you, it makes my days so much easier knowing that!

All ready to go to daycare!

So, I have to tell you all... My weakness in life is bread. No matter how hard I try, I cannot give it up. I have gone without it for a week, maybe even two... And it down right makes me cranky. I have accepted this, and therefore try the whole portion control with it. That being said... Here is my guilty pleasure breakfast.. 

Grapes, Orange and Jalepeno and cheese bagel (only half), with a
piece of pemeal/Canadian/back bacon- however you choose
to call the delicious stuff!

I know... Terrible right? I don't eat that everyday, however today I was feeling proud of myself for all that I accomplished and treated myself! and Boy oh boy it was so darn good! 

Here are today's pics... Lets hope I am at the highest weight I will be going forward! Oh and check out these shoes... Just putting them on makes me feel sassy!!!
What makes you feel sassy? Thanks for stopping by! It's Thirsty Thursday! Grab a beer or glass of wine tonight folks!



  1. Hey Jaymie, I am a MSVU grad too, I study Sociology and Psychology. Welcome to the Halifax blog group, I hope you do well with your weightloss goals

    I as for about 2 weeks playing a game with myself where I would set my alarm for 5:15 thinking I would get up and among other things do a little exercise. I always meant it when I set the alarm, but I never actually did it.

    Good for you!
