Down 3.2....

well I faced my music last night.... I missed the previous WI due to work committments but the WI before that I was up I've got back to were I start as well as .2!!! So I'm on track and excited...
Thursdays I usually slack on my breakfasts "since I have all week to get back on track" however today I made my 2 point Whey Gourmet sTrawberry banana smoothie (from PVL NUtrition) with an added teaspoon of fibre sure.....and am off to the races...
Today I have to meet the local politicians and give them a behind the scenes tour of my new COmmuinty Centre and Arena...should be interesting- politicians (especially from different municipalities) like to try and put staff on the spot by asking ridiculous questions...So...we'll see how that goes...
I have to head to another Board COmmittee meeting from today I don't get much time to actually do my work- but just entertain the we'll see how it goes. I anticipate to get Subway for lunch...but maybe I'll grab a lean cusine-- it might be safer (the garuntee of food at work- instead of relying on going out to get subway-- there is never enough time!)

Anyways hopeall is well for you--

been alright!

since my last post I have turned myself around...been doing pretty good on my eating and have been out there exercising alot woggin (jog/walk) has been progressing really nicely....

I have mixed emotions over my WI at WW tomorrow...I'm ready to face the music...and actually I'm pretty darn proud of myself of regaining some control over my eating job is very stressful right now- I'm about to open a 12.8million dollar community centre and arena, balance a 3million dollar operating budget for some other facilities, make board presentations, hire staff, attend evening meetings, get scrutinized by the community/user groups etc, work 50hrs a week... i'm under alot of pressure- however I'm still finding time to go for a "wog" with the dog and eat pretty well... not sure what the scale will say but hey--- life happens :)

Take Care 'all-- i"m going to watch Biggest loser woo woo LOVE THAT SHOW

My day auditioning for Canadian IDOL!! ahh

Well its 630am..I'm awake, dressed, and waiting for the ferry to leave to get me to Vancouver....WHAT AM I Doing !!!!! This probably one of the biggest whims I've acted on in a long while.... up at 5:15am... not a morning person

I'll be posting updates here through out the day since Ill have no-one to talk too!!

I arived at metrotownat 730am got in line up....met another 'older' person (26)...we've been doing the wave on camera...there is ssoooo many people and really we havnt moved in the line yet...ohwell its the experience...

So by around 930am we finally got our numbers --- i was 2073.... we waited and waited....then finally around 12pm my number got called... they walked us out of the mall- across the street and into some holding trailiers...then we went on our group of 5 to the producer...

Well my groups was interesting and only one of us got the yellow ticket to the next round...she brought her guitar in and played it while singing..

After singing "I love and rock roll" ...she critiqued us all togehter and started by saying this is just a TV show and they are casting certain people, after 6 seasons they know what they are looking for etc etc...I was told I sounded pretty good, I should have made more eye contact, was a little nervous and not really what they were looking for at this time... I felt like saying-- is that becuase I'm fat....but I was funny- I was the oldest person there (the age limit is 28) and the only girl that got beyond round one in my group was a 17 y/o blonde girl...hmmmm I guess she is what they are looking for..

in all it was an eventful day---good personal growth experience to go and be brave with all those hundreds of people!!

Reminder to all- go and take your chance on what you want to to!!

Going to Canadian Idol Auditions...

Wish me I confront my childhood desire to be a STAR!!! I really love the idea or performing, speaking and being in front of people.... I was supposed to go travel with Up with People back in the day, always kinda felt I missed something by continuing with my education and pursuing my career in recreation management.... SO for my very last opportunity I will be going to Canadian Idol audtions tomorrow in Vancouver..this is my last opportunity as you can only be its now or never... I don't really even care if I make it past the stage one auditions...I just want to say i did it....i was part of this crazy phenonemon (sp)....i could possibly be on TV AND I LOVE IT.....

Wish me luck!!!

This has been a top secret mission- my husband 2 co-workers and my dad know-- thats it....and of course all of you my good bloggin buddies!

Healthy you Challenge- Update

Hey there...
Since scale junkie changed the rules- I'm back in the game... woo woo woo....I've committedd to checking everyone's blog that posts a comment on mine (to be honest- I think is slightly rude when you post comments on blogs and you never see them visit yours) is great in whatever form it takes...I will also be randomly checkin various blogs VIA mr linky.... when the chance arrises- it may take me all week but I'm gonna do it

This week has been difficult- I just couldn't get it together foodwise, yesterday my TOM arrived which sorta explained the weird cravings, back pain, thirst....anyways I'm pretty sure I'll be up at my meeting tomorrow night (wed WI) but I'll posta bout that later.....I'm committed to a strick program this upcoming week- I REALLY need to win the mini-challege with my husband (we set up a valentines challenge since Jan- currently I"m winning however if he actually tries he could probably kick my butt)

I'm heading off to my hometown tonight to visit a friend who is here from Australia...getting sick and have a big day at work- actually I may not even make it back in time for my meeting we'll see it has been snowing all night- the drive could be treaterous

Take Care all and have a Healthy WEEK!!

HOpe your having a great week and into the weekend....

I need another drink :)

Fat Prison- seen on a couple different websites-

I want to tell you about a very unusual sort of prison. It's called Fat Prison. Why is it so unusual? Because it's completely voluntary.
No one sends us to Fat Prison, we send ourselves!

What's it like to be a fat prisoner? The rules are very strict. To begin with, each prisoner must wear regulation uniform. This consists of a baggy skirt or elasticated pants. Most prisoners pretend they don't mind walking around in this shapeless uniform, but secretly they hate it. They'd much rather walk down the street in a slim pair of jeans.
Exercise is strictly controlled Swimming or playing with children is forbidden. And no prisoner may walk more than a few yards at a time. The penalties for breaking this rule include sweating, shortness of breath, soreness and fatigue. After a few years without any sort of proper exercise, prisoners become so soft that the very idea of movement terrifies them. If you don't believe me, go up to a fat prisoner and suggest a nice long walk in the fresh air!
Everyday life The main feature of everyday life inside Fat Prison is tiredness. Prisoners carry lots of extra weight around on their bodies, so not surprisingly they suffer from chronic fatigue. Result? After doing their daily chores, most of them slump down exhausted in front of the TV.
Even when they allow themselves a night out, many prisoners find it difficult to enjoy themselves. They feel awkward about their shape so instead of mixing with other people they tend to sit in the corner with other fat prisoners.
Prison Mentality After many years of locking themselves away inside their Fat Prison, many prisoners develop a prison mentality. They lose confidence in themselves and their ability to "go straight". They look at slim people and think: "I'm never going to be like them!" They think they are doomed to stay in Fat Prison, forever. Result? They let themselves go completely.
Bad for Health Fat Prison is very bad for prisoners health. Don't forget, the greater our weight, the greater the strain on our joints and spine. And the fatter we grow, the harder our heart has to work to keep us going. No wonder so many fat prisoners get ill!
Depressing Fat Prison is a depressing experience, not only for the prisoners but also for their families. In fact, the children of fat prisoners often grow up to become prisoners themselves. It's a vicious cycle.
Question So why do so many people end up in Fat Prison? And even more important, why don't they leave once they discover how awful it is?
Answer Because they prefer to eat cookies, chocolate, potato chips, popcorn, doughnuts, fatty meat and creamy desserts. They know that this stuff makes them fat but they don't care. They'd rather go to prison than give up their regular mouthful of fat. *Some may have other reasons
Are you a fat prisoner? Have you locked yourself up in your own private Fat Prison? If so, here's some advice. Don't waste another day of your life in jail. Get out now!
All you have to do is stop eating junk and start eating properly and you can walk free tomorrow.
It may take a few months before your weight returns to normal, but your tiredness will lift immediately and within a week you'll feel ten times better. So what are you waiting for?Get out of your Fat Prison today and start really living!
