Are we there yet?

Managed to go to school today, despite not feeling much better. The runny nose has stopped, but it has left dry raw skin behind.

This week feels incredibly long. Tomorrow should be Thursday. I had a good day in terms of eating. I stayed within my calorie count, and even ate at Swiss Chalet!

Tomorrow is DF's birthday. He is leaving with friends for the weekend. I am off to the Bridal show all alone....well not quite. My soon to be mother-in-law has graciously agreed to come along.

So..tonight. I think I may not go on the treadmill. I'm not sure its the best thing for my sick body to do. I'm going to do some planning for school and call it a night fairly early.

Home sick today. I am a teacher, and it is really difficult to make it through the day feeling like crap.

I did manage a 45min treadmill workout....not sure how I pulled it off.

I am also on the right track for eating today.

I am on Spark people and calorie counting. I am supposed to eat in between 1500-1800 calories a day. I'm usually on the higher end, but working out.

So pumped for the Biggest Loser tonight!! That show gives me major motivation!

What inspires you??

New Blog....New beginnings

Well, I've been a blog lurker for a few years now. Many of my ideas, recipes and inspiration come from the blogs that I read.

I have decided, why not try this blog thing out - maybe it will give me that extra bit of motivation that I need.

Weight is something I've had issues with my entire life. I remember being in Gr. 2 and kids joking about a boy in the class weighing 100lbs...and I was sitting there thinking "I weigh 100lbs"...
Yikes! I've been up and down. I'm pretty tall (5'10) and my highest weight has been 226 and my lowest has been 160. I aiming for a goal weight of 170lbs. My current weight is 221.

I am getting married in August to my love of 6 years. I desperately want to feel beautiful on my wedding day. I would love to be 170lbs and not think once about looking fat.

My plan - Eat a variety of healthy foods (as clean as possible)
- Exercise daily (just got my own treadmill!! and it's really making things happen!)

So..I'm looking for any bit of encouragement for my journey. I will keep you posted on my weight loss, as well as my wedding plans!

Thanks for joining me!
