Happy New Year!..

I am struggling.
really, really struggling.
How do people do it?

Since we moved provinces in October I feel like I've been drowning, just barely able to stay afloat.
I'm only working 8 more hours a week than I was in Newfoundland but seriously..

I think the major difference is due to me now working evenings, its great in theory - I'm home with Elliott all day everyday. Not often we need a sitter, from the time he opens his eyes until almost bed time its just me and him.
Great for bonding with my boy, not so great for my sanity.

Since most adult social activities are evening centered and my main blogging time would be late evening after Elliott went down for the night, its safe to say my days are now play time then work then sleep.

alas, I could go on and on.
Its a sob story really and the saddest part is that I know other families would kill for this schedule!
so I'm going to cut myself off right here and just say I'm sorry.
I'm sorry that I'm unreliable but that's my life so lets just agree to be friends under the circumstances and I will do my best to not leave you hanging for lengths at a time :)

Getting to the point of this post, I am at it again!
a hashtag! hahahah

Like many of you, I have a lengthy list of new years resolutions. I'll share my whole list maybe tomorrow.. but its pretty basic. weight, health, money, yoga.. #BASIC

Since we've been back in NS I've been indulging to say the least...
All the things that were not available while we were in Newfoundland have been constantly on rotation - pizza, sushi, lattes, wendys, boston pizza, lattes, lattes, lattes..

I honestly put on 10 pounds in 3 months.
10 pounds .
On a 5 foot frame, oh hell naw.

January came and I lost 5.
then last weekend came and I gained 5.
You see where I'm going with this.
I'm out of control and need help.
So a hashtag seemed like the most sensible of solutions.

my wallet and my waist confessions
will probably be a regular occurrence because money and food
is there anything worse??

This weekend was bad
really bad, but I resolve to be better this week.
and that's all I can do really.
lets be better together

What's been your downfall this week??

*disclaimer: I wrote this post with a 18 month old hanging off my elbow, he was pretend typing shaking the table next to my keyboard so all errors and non sensible writings are legitimate.


  1. I'm only 5 feet too!! Trust me I understand! Every extra pound goes right to my stomach, often getting many "are you pregnant??" Comments! Since the holidays I've been so off track eating junk, feeling too lazy to cook, etc. This cold weather doesn't help, I just want to sit inside and stuff my face lol!

  2. I have the same problem! One cookie, turns into popcorn and cake, Taco Bell, and then more cake. I can't seem to get it together. But so far so good today, haha! I hope everything gets easier for you love, I don't think I could work your schedule. You're doing fab in my eyes :) xo
