Good morning ladies,
I hope you all had a nice weekend. Sorry I'm a bit late updating. I was in Cambridge, ON and Toronto, ON yesterday for work. Today I fly out again at 11am to Toronto, drive to Oakville for an event and dinner and then fly home tonight arriving back in Ottawa at 10pm. It is going to be a LONG day!
I had an amazing weekend. Seriously, one of the best! Friday night we went on our date to the Brazilian restaurant. It was amazing. I ate WAY too much though. We also had some drinks, so after dinner I was full and a bit tipsy which equals = Zzzz! Haha
Saturday morning we got up, quickly cleaned the house a bit, made a trip to Walmart (where I found the lanterns I wanted!) and then my dad and his gf came over. She is really in to gardening so she came by to look at our patio/flower bed and give us some ideas. Moments after they left, we hopped in the car and headed to RONA. Luckily it is up the street from us because we ended up making 4 trips. 35 bags of soil was needed to fill in our flower beds!! Luckily we found a brand that was on sale but still high quality. We bought a lot of flowers, shrubs, tall grass. After getting everything home, my boyfriend took the lead. He surprises me more and more everyday. Not only is he sexy as hell, he isn't new to gardening! We bought a lot of plants but we still have some room to add a bit more as the summer progresses.
Below are some before and after pictures. Let's me know what you think!
Sunday afternoon I had my first soccer game of the season. I was expecting to barely be able to run but I did pretty well! Quite proud of myself. I'm sore now but could be worse. My boyfriend picked me up some 5 and 8lbs weights last Friday so I am going to get in the habit of working on my arms in the evenings, if nothing else. I did some last night and man, I forgot how much I missed it. My arms have always been something that have been decently easy for me to work on and see results quickly, so I'm super motivated.
My boyfriend had his first real shift last night with the Ottawa Police. His shift was 4:45pm to 3am. I didn't think I was going to be worried or nervous last night, but for some reason I couldn't sleep until he climbed in to bed. I adore this man!
I can't believe I forgot to mention that I came home last night to my laundry done and folded. I usually do the laundry, not because my boyfriend won't, but because I'm a lil OCD and try to do it often. It was such a sweet surprise to come home to clean, folded clothes. Amazing!
My eating has sucked since Friday, not proud about it but not going to dwell on it either. I'm getting my period and feel extra bloated too. Blah. Today is a new day and new choices can be made.
B- Coffee + 1 egg + a banana [X]
S- Yogurt + an orange [ ]
S- 2 baby cucumbers [ ]
L- TBD (on the road)
D- TBD (Dinner will be served at the later event, so I'll update later)
I hope you all have an amazing day.
