Schools out for summer!

I previously wrote that my son, Philip was finishing school for the summer and the last couple of months were tumultuous for us. This year was another lesson for us on just how mean some people can actually be to a child and we can now all take a break to enjoy the reprieve the summer has to offer!

We are hopeful that come September, we will have a more successful school year for us. For now, we can rejoice that we made it! Yahoooo!

To celebrate this joyous occasion, after saying our good-byes to the after school program monitors, we went to our local mall and had frozen yogurt for supper! We had several different kinds. I had mango, chocolate, strawberry and honey. We even got to choose a variety of toppings! Here's to healthy eating...NOT!

Summer here we come and this only means that we are getting that much closer to Halloween! BRING IT ON!

Rediscovering old items

Hello everyone! For those of you who have been following my lifestyle change, I lost a little over 30 pounds since last summer! For those of you who are unaware, last year, I gained a ton of weight. I was unhealthy and after seeing a photo of myself, I decided it was time for a positive change!

I do not believe in fad diets. I do not believe in starving myself to look a certain way. I do believe in eating right and exercise and I have been doing just that.

Despite feeling a little down earlier this month, I decided to focus on the positive so I donated clothes that no longer fit me to goodwill and I started wearing my clothes differently.

One of the things I started doing was tucking my shirt in and I also started wearing tighter fitting clothes. This is something I have not done in years, in fact, before I got pregnant! I now feel confident and beautiful. I noticed that I have my hour glass figure back.

Making this lifestyle change, made me appreciate my body more. I stopped hating it. It is not because I am a lot slimmer than I was before. I thought being thin would make me feel better but it is the exercise and eating healthy that did it for me. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy junk food! I live in Montreal and know where all the good poutine places are! I do eat burgers too, I just don't eat that stuff every day. I actually look forward to my workouts and I feel better.

 To me, I was always a petite woman and this is the Sylvie I remember;  The healthy little short girl who dangles her feet when she sits down. It is nice to feel more like myself again.

The Bog Of Eternal Stench

I recently got a new Pop figure to add to my Labyrinth collection, considering Jareth was lonely. I got Hoggle! I remember the first scene with him in the movie,he was peeing in the fountain and then he started "dusting" faeries! I really do like this character and am so happy to have him as an addition to my collection.

I swear, I have no clue where I am going to put all these damned things!
