I overheard a transit driver today telling some tourists that the weather in Vancouver is “turning bad” … so I thought I would snap a picture and prove how horrible today was:
I was supposed to attend the CFL game last night between BC & Ottawa, but I was battling yet another headache/migraine. I actually went to bed around 8:30 pm.
Unfortunately, that meant I was up early … WAY early! I was up today at 1:30 am and was unable to get back to sleep. I made my morning very productive … I cleaned out my freezer, organized my dresser drawers, cleaned the kitchen … and then took a nap around 6:00 am for about an hour.
I did a quick trip to Costco … picked up some peas for snacks and spinach for my smoothies. One of my October Goals/Habits is to incorporate a salad every day … but I truly do not like/crave salad, so I compromised with adding spinach/greens to my smoothie instead!
Here are my October Goals/Habits:
- walk to work each work day
- make the bed each morning (not health-related, but definitely something I don’t do right now!)
- strength exercises 2 – 3 times per week
- core work 3 – 4 times per week
- limit caloric intake to 1,500 daily
- walk home from work or 30 minutes of cardio in the gym after work
- incorporate greens into daily meals (likely in my smoothie)
I picked 7 goals/habits as there are 7 days per week … just one of my OCD things 🙂
Here are a couple other great shots I got this week:
I also cleared up a concern with my Mom that I’ve had for a while. I’ve already spent $419 for a round-trip flight home at Christmas, and I’ll have to spend ~$150 for my cat sitter while I’m gone … plus there’s the cost of Christmas!
We agreed to do only stockings and keeping the dollar limit to $50 each. Now, since I “have” to buy for Mom and Wayne, I know that means $100 … but I honestly don’t suspect they will keep my stocking to $50 (as there are 2 people to put into it) LOL
Now to figure out what to get them for $50 … I was thinking of gift cards … but that would mean maybe 2 x $25 cards each and nothing else? We always get magazines in our stockings, and they can run about $15 total per person …
I’ve suggested that I would like a Corkcicle because I’m always late thinking and buy wine on the way home … but it’s not cold. the Corkcicle would fix that in a jiff!
