Getting Real, More Harry and My Best Girls

Hello all,
It has been awhile and yes I have been avoiding, you know me! When I feel like I am not doing that well I hide but I am here to be accountable. I accomplished my goal of working out 4 times this past week, a record for me people I am shocked I did this. However, my eating was not good. I am talking candy, doritos, fritos, ruffles chips and pizza hut. Yes NOT GOOD. I think the boredom and loneliness here has got the better of me, I still do not know one person in this city and I spend most nights alone as K works nights. So I am just looking forward to going to school just to meet some people and then move back home to be closer to friends and family. But I need to learn not to eat my feelings, as my friend Sandra said to me tonight "feeling are not meant to be eaten, I don't think they would taste very good" ha ha she is right, well they do taste good but only momentarily. Today I woke up and did not want to go to my weight watchers meeting as I knew it would be a gain. All that hard work at the gym for nothing. So I skipped my meeting. But as the day went on I thought I cannot just run away from the scale, so I went to the afternoon meeting instead and I lost .2 which is virtually nothing. I just feel like such a failure. I have gone for 6 weeks and only lost 4 pounds, when most people have lost 15 or so in that time. It is because of my eating. So this weeks goal : gym 4 times, track everything and count my points, no chips and no pizza. So lets hope I do it. I want a better loss. I was not getting real with myself and sitting in my ww meeting tonight I knew I was not giving it my all. Well I am going to, I vow to it.

Still loving Harry Potter, I am 100 pages into the 5th book. I have never read a series before and man is it addicting. LOVE IT. I hate Snape, Voldemort, the Malfoys and Percy Weasley and I LOVE Sirius, Ron, Hermione and Hagrid!!!! Such a good story, cannot wait to read more, but will be sad when I am done reading them :(

Not much else to report. I am so lonely here ugh. I miss my best girl friends. I know most people have a group of friends but mine are all spread out. All in different places and all met in different places, some high school, some work, some university so they know of each other but are not friends with each other. Ugh I miss them all soooo much. Two of them are in a different province so I never ever see them but talk to them all the time online, but it is not enough. I want them to move back. I miss the times we used to spend together. And the others live back in my hometown so I am looking forward to being with them more once I move home. This move was a bad experience but it taught me a lot, like who are the most important to me and also that home is where the heart is, and this is not home.

I want to end this post with some pics of me and my 4 best girl friends, I love them and miss them!!

This is Crista, my best friend all through university. We were roomies from day 1 in residence until our last year. I have had sooo many laughs with her and great times and I miss her a lot. She always puts me in my place and tells me like it is and I need that in my life. LOVE HER!

This is Adrienne, we have been friends since we were 3. We were best friends all through middle school and high school. We have had our differences but we are still very close and are always there for each other. We had soo many sleep overs and talks and boy troubles and just everything you can think of, we have dealt with it!! Love her and miss her too!

These are 2 of my great friends Meghan and Sandra. Meghan and I were born on the same day in the same hospital and that is where our moms met, so we have been friends since day 1. But the girl in the middle is like my sister from another mother lol. We talk every single day for hours at a time LOVE HER! Def wouldn't have got through many things in life without her.>
This is Alison, we have been friends for about 5 years, love her. We have struggled through boys, university, and just life together. Pop and chip parties forever. This is us New Years right before it turned 2009, a fun night!

PS Is it wrong to admit that I like the Justin Bieber song "Baby"? OK don't answer that lol
