Here are my weekly goals :)

* 5 days a week of home cooking, include many "green" veggies.
* Drink lots of water everyday! A MUST!
* Tracking calories on Iphone "my fitness pal app)
* 3 bite rule on sweets
* Bring left over dinners for lunch the next day and monitor portions ;)
* 3 days a week basement work out (1 day Jillian Michaels 30 day shred video 2 days Gazelle)
* No fast food! (no burgers, no fries, no pop!)

This weekend I over ate a lot! and not with the healthiest foods. But we had a great weekend full of fun and.......

Canada won GOLD in Hockey!!!!! Olympics this year was amazing! I really enjoyed it.

Hope you all had a great weekend too.

(I also want to take a moment to pray for those in Chile that were affected by the earthquake. A good friends mother and grandparents are there visiting. They are ok, but we are praying for their safe return to Canada.

Also a friends sister just gave birth to her twins. One is 3lbs and the other 2.4lbs :( they are little fighters and little miracles, I'm praying so much for their health)

Sushi Party!

Sushi Platters! Yesterday night we had a bday gathering for my husband. We ordered 2 platters of Sushi and had samosas and spring rolls. They were all a big hit! :)

Love hosting parties can't wait to host the next!

Me and my sister. She baked for us below :)Cookies from Amanda's Cookies 4 Hope. If you are in the Toronto Area, Check out her site!
FUN! We had a great time :)

Even Zoe is pooped too!

With only 5 hours of sleep, I woke up, cleaned up then we went for a much needed Breakfast at Cora's :)

I just realized that tomorrow is March 1st and I still have 8lbs to lose by April 1st. I have been eating way to much, and altho I am working out, I am just maintaining and not dropping any weight!

Neeed to be more strict!.... 2mrw ;)

It's hockey time now CANADA Vs USA!

End of the week

End of the week ahhhh. Friday!!! Love Friday's well 5pm on Fridays to be exact. Weekends rock! :)
I'm loving, loving watching the Olympics and I am going to miss watching it when it's over on Sunday :( I've never been a sporty person so when I see these athletes with soo much passion in what they are doing, it makes me feel soo inspired and I feel like I'm there with them. Zoe obviously loves hockey the most ahahahah. Canada so far has 8 Gold, 6 Silver and 3 Bronze.
Joannie Rochette won Bronze in ladies figure skating today and I was just tearing up when she accepted her award. Amazing.

Tonight we are expecting lots of snow and we are getting 3 days straight of snow. I guess we had it really good with only a few days of snow and not that much this year.

...We have not had this yet... ahha!
Eeeek 2008 at our old house and street parking was no fun!!!

Weekend Fun

The Winter Olympics! Friday night we stayed in to watch the opening ceremony and I am so glad I did. I thought it was amazing. (I took some pics of the TV, my sister asked me where I was ahaha wished I was there!
AND Canada won the first GOLD for Canada on our own soil! Mogulist Alexandre Bilodeau Won Gold today. Exciting!!!

This weekend is a Vday weekend and we have a holiday Monday for family day, so it's a perfect long weekend :)

My husband bought me a new camera and also gave me the gift of painting our powder room and bedroom. He is the best! and totally won a bunch of brownie points this weekend ahahaa!
Had to throw in a random pic ;)

Here are some pics of the new paint colors.

Powder room, before color was a Orange peachy color and now...
Our bedroom was a light beige color and now...

I bought this art for 10.00 in the clearance section. It says "Courage". I love art with words.

By the time we cleaned up we ended up going out for a late dinner and were too tired to drive across the city to our planned lobster dinner so we just went down the street for Sushi. Sushi is always good :) I'm sooo looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow :) yippy to no work Monday!

Before I go I also want to thank a sweet blogger friend Swapna over at Petals for giving me an award today :) I will post about it tomorrow :)

Hope you all had a great weekend!!
