Stylish Blogger

I got th Stylish blogger award from Chicky. Thank you soooo much! I really needed something positive like this. There are some rules that come with this:

Post and link back to the person who awarded you this award
Share 7 things about yourself
Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers (or as many as you can)
Contact the bloggers and tell them they won!

7 Things about myself - 

I am now addicted to Just Dance 2 for the Wii and have converted Hubby
I am a chocoholic
I am addicted to Coke Zero - giving it up makes it worse!
Hubby and I are addicted to Vegas - I can't wait to go in May!
I am so excited for Vegas but I am also so scared to leave my daughter for the first time......
I love to entertain -  have people for dinner or snackies and a game
I love the Canucks!

So there it is - now I need to award this to some people. I am not going to make 15 because a lot of the people I follow have already received this but here it goes:

So I hope I didn't double up for anyone!

Now for the rest of my post - I struggled my way through the rest of the day yesterday and had a decent conversation with Hubby. I didn't really get too into it but I think I explained what I needed to. I find sometimes these conversations are just too hard - I can't admit all things I want....I don't want to really share all of my feelings about my body and weight. I don't know - I think I got my point across.

This morning I got up and ate well and have planned what I will be eating for the rest of the day. I need to stop at Safeway of my way to my SS class to get the rest of what I need for lunch and to make my first smoothie. I have been trying not to buy "light" or "diet" food but I think I am going to give in and buy some light yogurt for my smoothie. I think I need it while I am in the losing process, I will transition away from it when I reach my goal. I am also going to take a banana with me to eat in the car on the way home so I don't get that out of control feeling. Well the little one is waking up so I should get going ;)


  1. Congrats on the award!!

    I buy a lot of the lowfat or light, and fat free depending on what it is, but be careful. Sometimes the stuff they add to make up for what they take out is worse calorically.

  2. I use greek yogurt in my smoothies, it's just easier than messing with the iffy taste of light yogurt.. but it has around 13 grams of protein plus it's about 100 calories.. so it's low calorie plus healthy.. and the vanilla and strawberry flavors aren't too bad.. :)

    thank you SO much for the award.. I have received it already, but seriously, that makes it that much better.. hehe.. makes me believe in the award that much more.. :)

  3. Hiya, I am new to your blog but enjoying reading. Just thought I would call in and say hi and good luck with the hard work. With 3 kids myself I've been here many times and I am still working on it. All the best. x

  4. Thank you for the blog award!

    I find when I have important things to say to my hubby, the easiest way is to write him an email or letter. We either then talk about it, or he emails me back. I have a very hard time communicating and this is the easiest way for me. Thankfully, hubby understands and would rather me do this than bottle it up.

  5. congrats for your award, it was great learning more about you!
    As for conversations with Hubby, I have the same problem, I don't know how to communicate something, then it builds up inside me and when I finally do tell him, he doesn't understand what the big deal is. I have learned over the years to communicate a bit better, but it's hard especially with sensative topics like weigh loss and self image.
    Good for you for confronting him and getting in a good conversation, I bet you felt great after.

  6. Congrats on the award!

    I too am a coke zero addict! it's 10:12pm in CA right now and I've got one right here LOL!

    I love vegas! I have not left my son yet and he's 20 mos tomorrow! We went to Maui but brought him lol

  7. I have the worst time telling hubby my feelings and how deep this affects me. I think partially because I know he will hold me more accountable and that scares me. SILLY I know! but so true! Hang in there!
