The Bad-News-Bears came to town today…

Tumblr was blocked at work for me.  I knew it was coming as The Bank blocks most things (facebook, gmail, yahoo, lotto stuff, youtube aka anything awesome).

Very sad news indeed as I’ll only be able to post after work. Boooooo. I am sad.

~ Official Weigh-In-Wednesday post ~ 

To be honest? I thought I had actually lost more weight than 2.2 pounds this week, and to some degree I think I did. Why? Oh perhaps because last night, while watching movies with friends, my fingers found their way to popcorn, M&Ms, nibs and ice-cream oh my!

As I worked late last night, I (stupidly) skipped dinner and found myself thinking, “Whatever, I didn’t have dinner, so I’ll be fine if I eat *insert calorie filled treats here.*” I was wrong. It made a difference.

I don’t have a photo of today’s food, but I drastically cut down my portions:


  • two packs of oatmeal (1 flavoured, 1 plain)

Snack #1

  • plain yogurt and an apple


  • small chicken salad

Snack #2

  • Carrots/celery and hummus


  • Probably asparagus and chicken. As I’ve been up past 2am for the past 3 nights (and I get up at 7am) I’m exhausted and thus plan on hitting up The Bachelor 5:30 - 7:30 and then joining the land of calorie-free treats and sheep at 8pm. Need. Sleep. So. Tired.

Mean Girls pretty, put together Lohan? Yeah! I see that. Cracked out, trashy, needs help immediately, scary Lohan? NOOOO!!!!! Just thought I make the distinction so that people don't get the wrong idea. ;)

Oh why thank you my dear! And you’ve met me too! So that’s quite the compliment. Thank you!!

Also, the lovely Miss Staci, just emailed me and said I looked like, “Kat Beckinsale” (this photo) ahh y’all are so kind!

As we just encountered doppelganger week, and as we don't know what you look like, what celebrity do you think you look like? or have been told you look like?

I had to google, “doppelganger” as apparently I missed the whole “doppelganger week” extravaganza…

I really don’t know who I look like. If it was up to me, I’d say no one, but as I’ve been told a few times (take this with a grain of salt as it came from a) kids I babysat and b) my teachers) that it’s Lindsay Lohan. I don’t see it though…

Hey E! I am heavily considering buying the Eat Clean Diet book, I have been wanting to eat more raw and less processed for awhile but I am not really sure how, and if you like this book, then I think I will too :) Are you using the regular Eat Clean book or the newer one Eat Clean Diet Recharged? I am sure they are about the same, but I was just wondering :)

I haven’t found time to write a ‘review’ on the book so far, but I’m doing the Eat Clean Diet Rechargedbook, and so far really, really like it.  So yup! I recommend it :)

I think people need to stop bothering you about the steel cut oats! It's your diet and I know we have these kind of blogs to get support from others but I think these people need to shut up! You eat whatever kind of oatmeal you want! :)

ah so cute! Thanks. I don’t mind the help/support/kick in the butt from people though. I’d never even heard of steel cut oats until the other day… and if it helps shed some lard, well… then I’m all for it!

I’ve decided I’ll stick to two packs (1 reg, 1 flavoured) for now… as the weight seems to still be coming off with two. Thanks for the support!

Dear Diary Flashback: February 8, 2005

i want blue eyes
i want straight hair
my favourite movie is shawshank redemption
i weigh 196 pounds
i have to retake 2 courses
i’m $20,000 in debt
i lie
i’ve cheated
i love animals
i hate snakes
i want to be loved
i envy people a lot
i am conservative
i’m not sure if God exists
i’ve smoked weed
i’ve done hard drugs before
i love my family
i have a slight birthmark on my tummy
i’ve never loved a boy
i don’t think i’m pretty
i strive for compliments
i often throw up
i want to be skinny
i often dream
i say ‘if only’ too much
i want to be tanned
i want to be beautiful
i’m terrified of a loved one dying
sometimes i want people not to succeed
i’m terrible with emails
i’ve never worn a bikini
i’m terrible at managing money
i wish i could write properly
i don’t like me

I often (in an attempt to procrastinate from sleep, why? i do not know) flip back through my diaries and read my rambling thoughts from that day a few years back.  This was 2005’s.  I’m so pleased I’m not that person anymore, so naive to her life and the person she was.  Sadly,  I still think some of those thoughts sometimes, but at least I’ve moved (am moving) onwards and upwards, right? Right.

Welcome! I'm Liz, the girl relieved the Internet has 0 calories. South African by birth; Canadian on paper. A marathoner. CrossFitter. Paleo (somewhat) eater. Traveler. Cheese lover. And I think you're great!
