oh my racing mind

I always find it funny what i spend time writing about in this blog. Last post a couple days was about exercising! How boring! haha. I have too much time on my hands spending time look through websites like It's evil. Sometimes I'll get an idea in my head of something I want to do or something I want to look up and I won't be able to sleep at night because of it, it's evil really.
I watched a comedian the other night and he mentioned Steven Hawking, now I have to look him up and see what the deal is with him and why he is famous.

exercising baby

I've been jogging. Now, I was a slacker for the last week or so when i wasn't feeling better and i'm still not 100% better but I did go for a jog last night. It was the furthest I'm gone so far. I avoided hills for the first time and that's probably why I was able to go so far. It was nice though. I'm hoping that I'm doing it properly, i really don't want to hurt myself. I think I may get into some strength training as well with some small weights. I'd really like to increase muscle mass. I think it would help long term with the running too! I'm really enjoying my yoga class on Monday nights as well. It's really hard to stay away from those chocolates though.

wool crazy

I need roving, wool roving - fast! I am out of colours. I have this hanging on the entrance of my sun/art room. I use it to organize all my lovely colours, but since the end of fall when I was getting ready for all my craft and art shows I have none. I may pop over to the yarn shop today and pick some up - that's what i'm thinking but I am super lazy today. I may go over to the village (Value Village) and pick up some rustic frames too. I was to start making some landscapes. I've been itching to try them out and now I have the ambition to do so!

review this!

When Troy and I have children, they will be screwed - in a dermatology sense. We both have terrible skin. Troy (more worse then I) have had terrible acne growing up and I hated to even talk about it when I was younger, I was so embarrassed. We are both pretty good now, of course get the usual one here and there, but overall decent. We both tried so many products growing up and there have been more out there since I have tried some. I do come across some websites here and there that offer reviews like this exposed acne treatment one. I have a friend who won't even watch a movie before she checks out the review on it first :)

be careful!

I get nervous when people tell me they are on a lot of medications. I try not to take anything even when I have a headache or a cold! Watch out and make sure you read up on medications before taking them, especially diet pills. This adipex diet pills website does reviews, but make sure you check out tons and tons of websites and talk with friends, family, doctors before taking any. I get so nervous for people out there!

Picture perfect

I never have any pictures of Troy and myself. I get one maybe twice a year. I have more pictures of me and my cats then Troy and I! This was taken over the Christmas holiday's at my friend Laura's house. She had a get together at her parent's place. They have a pool table and hot tub, so of course it was a good time!

relax by the ocean - what a dream!

It's been decently uncold this winter. And I say "uncold" because warm would be too generous. I've been able to exercise and get out since it's been about -4 these days and right now it's zero! Which i'm very excited about these days. It is snowing at the moment which isn't too exciting though, so i'll contain myself from predicting the future. I would love to go down south though, even for a week or two. Last year I missed the rainy season - the month of April all together when i was resting on the equator. I would love to experience southern north america or south america itself. I found these riviera maya hotels and they look so beautiful and relaxing - maybe some day!

Life has been weird so far in 2010. Not sure if I'm enjoying it so far. I have been having some conflict with friends and not knowing how to handle it. I'm stuck in a rut. I did have a get together on Saturday with some friends - a Heritage party - where we sat and watched all 70 hertiage moments. These are the once minute long history clips they have been playing on television since I was young. It was fun and I think people had a good time. We had some of great food and some good laughs while playing games as well. Back to work this week. Not sure what's going to happen - Troy's been sick, so I'm waiting to see if it hits me as well. I hope not!

winter blues

We have been pretty blessed so far this winter - weather wise. It has been pretty mild. I have been able to lengthen my jogging and everything because of it. I hope it doesn't dip down really cold. I don't want to be stuck inside for the rest of winter. I love in the summertime when you have an outdoor fireplace especially when you are camping. They are so cosy and bring me so much joy. I love roasting marhsmellows and hot dogs every once and awhile. I have been trying to be a health freak lately. I've been working really hard in reducing my processed sugar intake!

Wishing for summer

I can't complain. This winter hasn't been too bad so far (knock on wood). I've started jogging and have been doing some almost every day. And that says something about the weather for sure because I wouldn't be outside, let alone jogging around if it was freezing. I can go a bit over a kilometre now. I would really like to run a half marathon in October. Not sure if that's going to happen or not. It's 21 kilometres. Not sure if i'll be ready for something like that by then but i'm going to try and see how I make out these next couple of months. Guess who bought dance dance revolution? :)
