Taking a Breather!

I'm off work now till Tuesday, which is when I start a week at a different job. I'm really happy to have the break! The job I just finished with for the month has asked me to do some data entry for a system implementation they are doing in April. I'm going to figure out my availability later today, but I could end up working complete months for Dec & Jan (except for my lovely week off at Christmas, of course!! oh, and except for the week at the other job!!) This is good news because we have made debt reduction a priority. Kinda icky news cause I was really liking the idea of having a week on, week off, week on, week off. That is totally selfish of course, but.... a gal's gotta have dreams!

After work yesterday I went and bought myself some really, really pretty shoes. I walked over to Payless but they didn't have anything kinda fancy (I needed shoes that I could wear to hubby's Christmas party) so I walked over to the nice shoe store (Towne Shoes) and bought myself a seriously smoking pair of shoes. I also stopped at the brand new Holt Renfrew store (seriously - how did I miss that big change??) and picked up a Spanx slip. I think it's all going to come together nicely.

I'm trying to decide if I want to run out and get my hair trimmed today. My regular hairdresser is unavailable and so it would mean stopping in some where and hoping for the best. Eh, it's just hair, right?? I mean, how much could they screw it up??? HAHA!

Program talk: ARGH!!!!

I'm struggling. Do any of you have this problem? Not struggling. This: Monday they ordered in lunch @ work, cause we all had to work right through. It was some chicken stir fry concoction with brown and wild rice and an orange/mandarin salad. I'm not sure how to count it. And when I come across something I don't know how to count - my journaling comes to a grinding halt and I run right off the rails. Sigh.

I have a lot of running around to do today. On the agenda for today is: getting the f*ck back on program, taking puppy for a nice LONG walk, groceries, belly dance...... phew - I'm tired! haha!!

I just made the yummiest looking stuffed peppers - used my brand new WW food scale to calculate the pts value..... 6pts per pepper friends!! CAN'T WAIT!!!!!

OK peeps - I gotta get going with the rest of my day... have a healthy one!


  1. Ummm FYI, you cannot mention the word "shoes", especially "Town Shoes" and NOT post a pic! ;)

  2. 1) Post a picture of the shoes PLEASE? I have a small obsession with pretty shoes.

    2) I wouldn't risk the new hairdresser personally, but that's because I've had really bad experiences with my curls.

    3) If you like stuffed peppers have you tried stuffed onions or tomatoes? They are lovely too!

  3. I do the same thing with journaling if I have something and I don't know...I guess I could just guess at something and move on, but I tend to anchor on it.

    I have been way off program too...I did manage a 5K today, but dude, I need to get back to it!
