Tag Archives: new year

back into my routine.

Sorry I haven’t posted in so long again.. Dan convinced me to go to the city with him so I spent the weekend there with no laptop stuck in a hotel room. Shopping was pitiful. Everything was so picked over I could barely find any clothes that fit me. However i went to winners and bought a new hairstraightener and a cook book.

I’m pretty excited to start cooking out of this book. I thought what a better way to start the New Year resolution of eating healthy and managing my weight. I think tonight I’m going to make the roasted vegetables. I’m hoping my hockey billet is going to a hockey game tonight because I love the time alone in the house to cook and clean. Last night I did laundry, took down Christmas decorations and shovelled off the sidewalk and driveway! GO ME!

I guess thats what happens when you aren’t home over the weekend though, I feel like I have so much to do! I just need a weekend at home with nobody coming over or visiting so I can get stuff done. But thats what the holidays are about… spending time with everyone else right.

My New Years Resolutions:
1. manage my weight better by eating healthy and exercising (curves 3 times a week)
2. enjoy life no matter what happens.. I need to stop getting myself into these depressive ruts
3. manage my banking account a bit better.. lol.. I need to keep track of when payments are coming out
4. smile!
5. be more creative… start scrapbooking again…

Thats all I can think of so far.. and I mean I don’t need to loose weight.. just inches around my belly more than anything I think. And exercise helps that more than anything I think.

so this is what a holiday feels like?

This is the first vacation day I have ever taken in my life! I took today off because my friends from back home are coming to visit and I would feel so bad if I was stuck at work and they were here. I fell asleep last night at eleven and woke up this morning at nine. I haven’t slept in like that in at least 2 or 3 months! Just got done making myself a pot of fresh coffee. I think by far my favorite Christmas presents are my coffee grinder and starbucks beans, my blue robe and my brown sweater and of course my wii fit. I think that the reason my back has been so sore is because of the wii fit though.. But I have been playing it at least 3o minutes a night and I do my body test every morning. Well I haven’t done it today yet.. its on my to do list..

Last night I thought I would get a head start on snacks for today. I made mom’s cheese ball thats soooo easy to whip up! This is the recipe I use and I know it off by heart and most of it isn’t measuring just put in what you think.

Mom’s Cheese Ball

1 (80z) package cream cheese
1 small can ham
1 green onion
1/2 tsp mustard
1/4 cup crushed walnuts

Mix the cream cheese and ham then add the mustard and onion. Shape into a ball and either sprinkle the walnuts or if you have more walnuts you  can roll the cheese ball in the walnuts so its completely covered. I’m not a huge fan of the walnuts so I usually just leave them off.

See its so simple and there isn’t really anything to it.

Dan has tickets to all the world junior games in the city and saturday I get to go too. So we booked a hotel room for friday night and saturday night in the city, which I’m so excited about because there is nothing that I have to look after (aka dog), I don’t have to cook or anything! Although I might make some muffins or something that I can eat there and bring fruit along.. last time we stayed there I had nothing to eat in the morning and usually ate out for lunch and supper… some way to start the new year..  Oh speaking of which I better get on my new years resolutions.. that will be tomorrows post I think.. haha
