its a new day today

I had the worst day yesterday at work. The phones would not stop ringing, everyone was in such a wonderful mood… and at the end of the day I almost started to cry when one of the managers threw a mitten at me and it hit me in the face… all for fun of course (his side of the story). I just can’t stand people like him I was so emberressed.

Anyway, today is a new day and hopefully a better day! I’ve already started planning what I’m going to do this weekend. Our hockey bilet is gone on a road trip and Dan has his home tournament this weekend with his peewees. Dan also has rec hockey tonight but not until later and our hockey billet has practice I believe. I don’t mind my nights alone… but its nice to have Dan home too. It gets lonely after awhile.

I have been going to curves every day at lunch, and I have also been doing my wii fit everynight. I love it so much! Although I haven’t noticed any difference going to curves so I’m not sure how well it is actually working. But last night when I was laying in bed I was flexing my abs and my core does feel stronger I just need to loose the fat in front of it. I’m going to be in such good shape by March if we end up going on a trip. Thats my goal anyway.. to not have “love handles” when we go on our trip.. or a muffin top I guess as Dan would call it. I mean I already feel better, I don’t feel so gross and I sleep way better at night now too.. but that could just be that I’m staying up later at night.. who knows..

another night alone

well.. my hockey billet ended up being gone last night to an away hockey game so I had the night to myself… and the dilemma began.. what to make myself for supper?

I thought I would just browse through that new cookbook I picked up and I found  a recipe for roasted vegetables.

Roasted Vegetables
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp soya sauce
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp fresh ginger
2 large carrots chopped
4 medium potatoes chopped
1 small onion chopped
fresh ground black pepper

Mix the olive oil, soya sauce, garlic and ginger in a bowl, add the chopped vegetables and mix until evenly coated. Pour into a baking dish and bake for 45 mins uncovered in a 425F oven. Stir once or twice.

Thats it so simple. Except I forgot about mine in the oven and burnt it around the edges and cooked  it all a bit too long. But it was still good. I ate it anyway..

What else did I do yesterday… nothing really played wii fit. I love my wii fit. I usually do a couple mini games and then I go into my personal trainer part and do the exercises for my hips and belly. I have been trying to stay up until 10 or so. I find I have a better sleep and don’t wake up as much during the night if I go to bed later.. the problem is just finding something to do to keep myself occupied. And there is absolutely nothing on tv these days.

I could have taken my tree down last night, but I think it looks so pretty up still I didn’t have the heart to take it down yet. Maybe this weekend I’ll take it down and get Dan to take the tree to his parents farm to throw it out. Dan comes back from the hockey games today. I guess Canada lost, I didn’t watch the game and I had to desire to either. I am so sick of hockey I can’t wait for it to be over!
