Thoughts on a Friday

I feel like I haven't been able to catch my balance all week. We've begun renovations on our basement, our entire house is covered in gyproc dust and cleaning has been futile, we've had company stay with us the past few nights, and at work I've been pulled in 100 different directions and feeling like I haven't accomplished much. So, instead of a "What to Buy During the Sephora VIB Sale" post (VIBs get 15% off with the code VIBSPRING), here's a bunch of random thoughts that have crossed my mind lately. You're welcome.
One from our honeymoon (Gulfport, Florida)

- The Tim Horton's Drive Thru; When you order chili, why must they put the little butters in the bag with it? Its always melted when I get home.

- I read all the pregnancy posts. You would think that these things would not interest me, because I am in no way wanting to procreate any time soon. But nope, I love the bumpdates, the nursery posts, and the must have lists. Perhaps they're preparing me for the future, but mostly I'm just educating myself on what to buy for baby showers.

- Why is writing Thank You cards so hard? I'm the worst bride ever. 7 months later, and they're still not all out. Do not be like me. Be better than me.

- I really need to start using my slow cooker. It would help with my #goals.

- How does everyone get those nice shots from above them? I'm seriously asking. All I get is a whole lot of selfie arm.

- Why does weight loss need to be so hard? And why does it take so damn long?

- I had to go buy more hangers at Walmart again. Who knew we had so much clothes? I guess we've never hit Laundry Zero before. I'm such a good housewife.

-  Why must Netflix create shows that are so addicting that you basically get sucked into a black hole? Here's looking at you 13 Reasons Why.

- Why must this province have a Shop Closing Act? Seriously, it makes being productive on long weekends very difficult. I mean, everything was closed Friday and Sunday this past weekend,it makes doing a basement renovation during our days off a challenge.

- Why is my husband so resistant to doing a reclaimed lumber wall in our basement? I thought reclaimed lumber was the dream of all rugged men.

- How can I get paid to vacation? Because our honeymoon was freaking awesome.

Okay, so I'll definitely be ordering my favourite foundation during the sale. But, that's probably all, because budget. What's on your mind lately?

February Is The New January

If I'm being honest, I'm not great at setting goals and following through. I've never met a new years resolution I couldn't break within the first two weeks. And yes I know, January is already over, and February is here,  but its better late than never to start this whole New Year, New Me thing right?



Be more active
Yes. I want to lose weight. And being more active will certainly help me achieve that. But more so than that, I want to feel better about myself. I don't want to feel lazy. And I want to be healthy. I want my body to be strong.

Eat healthier
I love food. Looooooove food. But indugling in all of my favourites, all of the time has wreaked havoc on my body. I don't feel good when I look in the mirror. And I feel guilty about how unhealthy I eat all of the time. I don't want to feel that way anymore. Healthier food choices will help. I want to find foods that I love to eat, but won't make me feel guilty. And maybe eventually, when I do indulge, I won't have to feel guilty about that either.

Cook more
One of the reasons I don't eat healthy is because I don't cook enough. Jeff and I eat take out far too often. And when we don't its usually a frozen pizza, or nachos, or a side kick.

One of the main reasons I don't cook is lack of preparation. I don't put a lot of thought into what to make or eat until its time to start cooking. Which rarely works out, because I'm lacking ingredients. So meal planning is likely going to have to happen.

I'm also not very confident in the kitchen.  I don't feel like I'm a great cook. I want to push myself to try more things. Because I'll never get better without practice. 

"Live" More
For the most part, life is good and I am happy. But both Jeff and I feel like we're spending too much of our lives at home, doing nothing. Watching tv, or YouTube videos. Basically watching other people live their lives instead of living their own. And we want to change that. That isn't to say that I'm swearing off tv (we all know that I love my shows too much for that), but those shows can be recorded. We want to spend more time getting off our asses. We want to snowmobile, and snow shoe. Go skiing and snowboarding. Spend our weekends hiking or camping. We want to make memories.

Blog More
I love writing. I really do. And I love this blog. But I've found it hard to be as committed as I want to be to this little space on the web, because I haven't been truly "living". And if you're not living, and spending copious amounts of time on the couch, what are you supposed to write about?

I'd ask what your goals and resolutions are, but its February. So instead, have you kept your resolutions? How is it going?
