A Rant Or Two...

Ok Nelson Hydro...I know it's summer and summer storms happen here on a regular basis but is that an excuse for the power to go out 4 nights a week!? I had to shower in the dark, make my lunch for work with a flashlight in my mouth, and nearly sliced my hand open looking for a lighter to light some candles so I could at least walk around without hurting myself! GRR!

As you may have guessed it was a shitty day here in wetter  western Canada. I know that most of Canada and the US is in the middle of a heat wave right now and all I can say is...Wouldja mind sharing some of that heat! We've had practically ZERO summer and I'm sick of it! I want some warmth and some sun to hit my glow in the dark skin.

Tonight I only did a 2km walk as it was beginning to storm and I didn't want to be caught far from home, late at night, by myself, in a storm, in grizzly bear country. The reason I was so late leaving for a walk (nearly 8pm) was because I was waiting for a friend to text me saying she was ready to go walking. She had confirmed that she wanted to go but just wanted to get her kids fed first...So when I hadn't heard from her in an hour and a half I figured I'd better get going or I wouldn't end up going at all. And I'm not afraid to admit that the thought of not going passed through my mind. But a true testament to the new life I'm living, I pushed that thought out of my head and set out on my own in none to promising weather.

Today I got some real compliments. I seen a few co-workers that I hadn't seen in a few weeks and let me tell you, hearing "oh my God you look so good!" never EVER will go out of style. Sure is a confidence boost. Now, because I don't yet own a scale, I don't know exactly how much weight I have lost but I have noticed that my clothes are fitting looser which makes me happy :)

I have ordered some new running shoes. I got reebok easytone runners hoping that their "they tone your butt, thighs and calves" slogan may actually ring true...hey a girl can can use all the help she can get right? I also have read reviews and they are apparently the most comfortable shoes that people have put on their feet. And seeing as how I got them for 50% off...Even better. If I like 'em I'm ordering a second pair. One for work and one for workouts!

Have a lovely weekend everybody! xoxo


  1. Hey girl I know exactly what you mean about the weather! We have had more rain the sun these past couple of months in Spokane. It's good you still braved the storm (and possible bears!) all the work and dedication really do add up! Let me know how those running shoes do, I've been meaning to get another pair : )

  2. Way to go on doing the walk, even without your walking buddy. That shows true motivation and dedication. I am not sure what I can do, but I certainly will try to send some of this Eastern US heat wave your way - this is what seems like our gagillionth day in a row of 95+ degree temperatures. It is sweltering out there, so no work outs outside for me. Hope you get to see the sun soon!

  3. Great job on getting out there to get a walk in!
    That's awesome that you are getting compliments! Congrats! I can't wait to hear if you like the Reebok Easytones! Keep up posted.
