A new day... a new week!

So this morning I was up one pound from last week... 256lbs. 


I already expressed my frustrations on Friday and I already have a plan of attack for this week. I'm staying away from bad carbs (I will be eating fruit!) and after a week, I'll slowly add some whole grains back in to my breakfasts and some lunches. I'm not doing so well with the Lose a Marathon challenge and September is quickly approaching, so it's time to get my butt into gear! 


That all being said, if my weigh in days were still friday, I can guarantee that I would have been up at least 3 lbs after this camping weekend!! Actually, after all these busy weekends I've been having, I'm pretty sure I'd be well into the 260's again. So at least the challenge is helping :)

We had a great time camping and we lucked out and had great weather! The weather forecast kept changing it's mind, so we had no idea if we were going to get rain or not and we didn't! 



This campground ha an awsome pool, that's shaped like a lake and holds 1,000 people!

Self portrait! :)

I've said this many time, but I just love camping! I wish I could do it more often. My family and I used to go camping for the entire summer... those were the days. I'll always be a small-town girl at heart :)

On a completely other note, my eyes have been bothering me so much since mid last week. I decided to stop wearing my contacts for a few days to see if it will help. They've (specifically my right eye) been very sensitive to light, I had to wear my sunglasses when outside and I've had my visor down in my car because even the sky seems to bother them. My right eye feels almost like it's dry and when I wake up in the morning, it's super sensitive to the TV. It's odd. I've never really had allergies, so I'm not sure if that's what it is? I'm going to try some allergy meds later today and see if that helps and I'll also wear my glasses for a few days. If they aren't better by wednesday, then I'll make an appointment with an optometrist.

We're in for another heat wave this week. It's funny reading comments from people that have never been to Canada and assume it's always cold there. Well pretty much since June, the temperature hasn't dropped past 80 degrees and this week it's supposed to be 98 degrees and over 110 with the humidity.. YUCK! 


Hope everyone has a great monday and Stay Cool! :)



P.S. I've been playing with the look of the blog (again!) and I think I like this version.. it can stay (for a while anyway).

  1. I haven't been doing well lately either! And I am very frustrated. I know mine is an over indulgence of carbs as well so they are gone, with the exception of fruit and quinoa. Good luck this week!

    1. Carbs are evil, yet so good! LOL

      I definitely can't live without fruit. They will be my main source of carbs this week and next week I'll add in some whole grain oatmeal, crackers :)

  4. Oh gosh, I've been going through the exact same identity crisis on my blog as well for the past couple of weeks. I changed it again a few days ago and I'm still not happy with the header and I have no idea how to get a cute "title" area. Any suggestions on where I can look to get directions on how to change it?

    On a totally different note, I agree with the above commenters, you're gorgeous and even though you may not have been as successful as you were hoping to be with the Marathon Weight Loss Challenge (I'm not either but at least I haven't gained lol) at least you have a plan and that's the first step.

    Keep up the great work!

    1. I created the title in Photoshop, then inserted the image into the heading area. I think you have to choose a template that allows for a header. As a graphic designer, I'm never really satisfied with it and I'm sure I'll be changing it again lol.

    2. Ahh ok, thanks for the tip. Which template in Blogger are you using that allows for a header?

      B-

  5. Hi Bailey,

    I've noticed that you're using Fitness Pal and I think that's great. I know a few people that have had great results, but then again, they were all guys. Wish women could lose weight just as fast!

    Also, I'm so pleased to be your new follower. It's nice to have blogger friends in the GTA :D
