Good morning lovelies!

Sorry I haven't posted in a couple of weeks. I have some bad news. I have to pull back one of my resolutions. It seems that I'm not cut out to be a runner. I tweaked my knee the other day on the treadmil and I haven't been able to get back to the gym in about a week since. I've had problems with my knees for the last 4 years or so from standing on the concrete at work for 8 hours a day. So, I will not be running 5k this summer.

I am doing well on my other resolutions. I'm making an effort to leave the house polished. My hair is always done and I have at least some concealer, powder and mascara on before I leave the house. The skin care is going well but my skin doesn't seem to be responding. I'm still breaking out constantly. Cleaning up my diet is going well, I'm managing to keep bad foods out of the house and I haven't eaten out in about 2 weeks now.

On the job front it's still in the same spot as it was before the holidays. Just have to keep plugging away. If any of my Canadian followers hear or know of any opportunities in the Capital Region, could you pass them along my way? Any help would be appreciated. I'm running out of places to look. I roam the same few sites a couple of times a week.

Sometimes I find something really great (then never hear anything) or there is absolutely nothing. Oh well, they say it's a full time job looking for a job.

I have some great news. My friend T is pregnant! She found out last week and she goes for the ultrasound on Sunday to see how far along she is. I'm super excited! I'm going to be an auntie! I'm going to have my year cut out for me as well. I'm going to have to plan an Engagement party, a baby shower, a bridal shower, a bachelorette and help plan a wedding!! I'm going to be quite the busy girl.

I can't wait for my vacation at the end of the month. We're not going anywhere, but it will be nice to have a week off with D and to have time to just relax and work on me. I'm hoping by then I'll be able to get back to the gym so I can put in multiple hours in a day.

Anyways, that's my mini update for today. Also, I'm going to go on the SGD on Monday and work hard on my under 800 for the weekend.


  1. I'm not cut out to run either so don't feel bad. I have the bad knees too. Anyhow, glad the food is going good. Good luck with your 800 and under weekend.

  2. I don't know what your skin care routine is. But I've had great results by eliminating dairy, diet soda (not sure if it's related), cleansing with a tea tree oil soap and moisturizing with alba organics acnedote which has natural willowbark in it (instead of chemically created salicylic acid). I find that using stuff like benzoyl peroxide and all the artificial stuff makes my break outs worse. But my skin got 100% better when I started eliminating dairy and using those products.

  3. an engagement party, a baby shower, a bridal shower, a bachelorette party, and a wedding?! holy moly, very busy indeed! that really sucks about the knee, stupid Costco! still though, summer is a long way off and 5K training is DEFINITELY doable; I think it's still possible!! hope the job hunt goes okay. <3RaeLynn
