TOPS workshop

I spent the day yesterday at a workshop for Diabeties Education. I had a table for TOPS. I have never been a public speaker, so staying alone at this table was a bit hard for me. However, I think I reached out to many people about the importance of watching what you eat, and exercise. I had a hard time with this at the same time, only because 90% of the people that I was trying to speak to spoke little english, they spoke punjabi (sorry if I spelled that wrong). One of the handouts that I had with me was called "Emotional Eating", now thats my downfall. Ok, so lets face it women, who doesn't have that downfall. This past while I have sure noticed how important TOPS is to me. I am so thankful to all the members in ON#499 Brampton. Everyone is so encouraging, and always there to lend a helping hand.

being accountable

Ok, so today, I found myself asking myself, "Will this help me get to my goal" while in line at McDonalds with Taylor. I have to admit, that I made some different choices with my meal then normal. I didn't have the fries, and I only had the small burger. Compared to my normal Double Quarter Pounder and fries, I think I did a much better thing.
This past wednesday at TOPS, I lost 2lbs for the week. I want to continue on that downword scale to get to my goal.
Thanks for the support Jason, Joyce, and Susan. I know I can always cound on you guys

TOPS Rally

I spent yesterday in Bolton at the TOPS Rally. We had a blast. There was so much going on, and so many things to do. We had baskets with draw tickets, and I won the romantic basket. It was quite itresting to see all the people there. The King and Queen were both there, and the amount of weight they had lost to get to their goals. The King had lost 84 lbs, and the Queen 179lbs. I know that with the inspiration they gave, and my KOPS friend Joyce, I can make it, and I can get to my goal. I only have 50 lbs to get there, but I am sure that I can get there. I need the kick in the butt to get there, and to keep me on track. I hope that by putting this up here, that all my friends and family who read this, will help me keep on track. I need to cut out the snacking between meals, and making better choices when having meals. I hope to get to my goal in the next year or so.
Thanks for reading.

Yes, I had to break the news to you. Sorry to those of you, like me, who haven't even thought about Christmas yet. Ok so well all gotta get going on this one. Since we are going to Kenora for Christmas, who knows what on earth we are going to do.
I know that Taylor is getting a few things that he wanted from Nanny, and of course she will have some new clothing for him, but as for what the jolly man might bring.... I havn't a clue.... Heck.. I don't know what i am going to get Jason, never mind Taylor...
Ah well.. I thought I would write this as a friend just so nicley reminded me that it is just around the corner...
God Bless everyone!!

school bus appreciation day

Ok, so driving a school bus isn't all that bad. On days like today, when all the students say "thank you" for taking them to and from school. It made my day! I even got cupons from one school for Tim Hortins!
Have a great day. I have TOPS tonight.

no more wedding pics

Not to worry.. I am not posting anymore wedding pics right now.
I thought I would write a bit about how I am really feeling today. I am kinda lost for words, and that isn't like me. I have had to quit my one job, and am driving school bus right now, but am sure looking for new oppertunities elsewhere. I am thankful that Jason is almost finished school. Things will be better with us both working. I know things will get better.
I am very tired these days, but I think that is because I am stressed about things.
The thought about christmas scares me. I know it isn't that far away, but it is going to creep up on us before we know it. The family will be flying back to Kenora for a few weeks. I think Taylor is looking forward to the trip. I know he wants to see his best friend Daniel. We got to see him when we were in Kenora for Candy's wedding, so I am sure we will get to see him again.
Well I should head off to my bus and get ready for the afternoon run.

Bragging rights

Well I have to brag on Susan's behalf. I was looking at our wedding pictures, and had to show you what a great job Susan did with all the cakes. I don't know where she gets her talent but she sure has lots of it!!
It was so nice to have the family involved. Dave as the best man, did wonderful things getting things ready also. And then the wee one of the family, looked soo good walking down the isle with her little basket. The family did a wonderful job. Thank you so much to the Naus family. You guys have been great friends. We will sure miss you when you move.
Love you guys.

5 days to go

With only 5 days left until our wedding, things around here are getting a bit hectic!!
It is amazing the little things that you forget when trying to get things done. Thank goodness for the great friends who are willing to help in any way possible. I have to thank Susan, and Theresa for all the offers of help! They will be taken up as soon as I get my head on straight!!
Flowers are done, and I have to remember to get someone to pick them up on saturday morning, change with the food, but its for the good, and we have someone to pick that up already. I hope that things are falling into place now.
