Need for an update

I realize it’s been a while since I’ve posted and much has happened, so here goes!

The last week and a bit I’ve been getting back into running with my best friend. Is it ever nice to have a running buddy! Last Tuesday was our first night out and it was POURING rain. We were absolutely soaked when we got home but we drove to Timmy’s and had nice steaming bowls of soup and a donut 🙂 We also decided to meet again on Thursday, rain or shine. Thursday was so cold (for the climate) and my legs were sore from lack of stretching (oops, we learned our lesson) but we went out for another hour. Tuesday I decided it’s about time I got some outdoor running pants, so I’m now the proud owner of reflective running tights! I feel like such a pro 😉 Since it was Tuesday, I even got to try them out and they are so comfy! It also seems that Tuesday is our Timmy’s night, cuz after our run we walked around the corner for another bowl of soup and donut. It feels so good to be out exercising and spending time with my best friend.

This week has been a little more challenging food wise. Friday night, we did movie night because my bf had bought my parents everything they needed, gift certificates for pizza and movies, beer, orange soda (for my sister), caramel popcorn and chocolates! I petitioned for beef taco thin crust pizza (3pts a slice) and got some low-fat kettle corn (3pts for 3.5 cups) but I still gained a pound the next day 😦 Saturday I hopped on the ferry home for a quick visit and got to have sushi lunch (yum) and then unexpectedly dim sum in the morning. Not the best meal to have on a diet, but I managed to get some gai lan for most of my meal and splurged on a sesame ball and a bbq pork steam bun (two of my fav chinese foods!) I was really good and had a salad for dinner while I waited for the ferry back to school. Monday I’d gained another pound, which I thought was good, but I really wanted to be down 2 lbs this week. Monday and Tuesday went well, I made turkey stroganoff (with whole wheat, yolk free egg noodles!!) and was back down to Friday’s weight but Mom decided to get fish and chips tonight. I told her that I would just have one piece of fish and some chips (15 pts, just what I had left!), but of course, she decided to get zucchini sticks for me (which I think are worse than chips sometimes!) I made myself some steamed broccoli and took one piece of fish, a small stack of chips and, because I have a weakness, an oyster. I was really happy to have the broccoli because it really filled out my plate, but I’m worried that I’m going back up tomorrow and won’t be able to work it off by WI Friday morning 😦 But I’m going to get right back on track tomorrow with my whole wheat banana bread and soy milk breakfast and fruit and veggie snacks throughout the day!

School is also getting crazy. I’ve got an assignment and two reports due next week! It’s been a challenge finding time to work on them at since my parents’ house is not well designed for multi-adult living. The living room is the only real work place and the only room with decent heat, the farther down the hall you go (towards my bedroom) the colder it gets. I feel like I’m living in a fridge sometimes! Luckily the school is decent to work at during the day and there are people that are able to help, yay!

So that’s me in a nutshell for the last week.
