what a life

well, it's friday morning and i have the day off from work (yay!). that's the good news. the bad news is that i went to the dentist this morning and CRIED. dammit! what a baby! i had a chipped tooth and the chip (that they fixed last time) fell out so they had to replace it. anyhoo, they froze half my mouth and then went to town, and then i could feel the drill on my tooth nerve (!!!) and so i jumped back (well, my head moved) and water from the spray hose went everywhere, and little tears started dripping down my face, and they had to use MORE freezing and now half my face is a frozen blob. the good news is that it's over.

i am at my bf's apartment. he lives in my old neighbourhood and really close to my dentist. he is still sleeping because he is a teacher and that's what they do in the summatime! we are leaving today to go to a friend's cottage all weekend - yeeha! these cottage parties are out of control - like a house party from american teen movies. right on a nice lake too and not crazy far away (less than two hours).

i have been eating well and exercising all week. i completed my weekly plan except i took a rest day on wednesday. i cleaned my apartment all night and did all my laundry. yesterday i ran/walked four miles on the treadmill in my gym. i just wasn't feeling the outside. it was tough but i made it through. i am finally back in my maintenance weight zone too. now, the hard part, to keep it that way for two weeks until we leave for paradise. can i do it? during the week - of course, but weekends are my downfall. and cottage weekends? i've already got cans of bud light lime waiting for me in my car hehe. i have tried it before and it's sooooooo good and refreshing! my LCBO was sold out of bottles so i had to purchase cans, which i have never tried but what the hey - it's like beer pop.

i am bringing my running gear to the cottage. my half-marathon training plan says i have to run five miles on saturday. i will have to bring my garmin (love it) to keep track of my distance. hopefully the satellites will co-operate! that's all for now - have a lovely weekend!

Bud Lime is awesome. I have to stay away from it as I can easily chug one down like it is water.
I am a total suck as far as the dentist goes.

How dreamy - a cottage party weekend??? Definitely something out of a movie.

ooooh, where you going? I'm coming back to TO next weekend to go to a cottage somewhere too! I don't even know where, but it's about 2 hours away. :) Can't wait.

Hope yer blobby face heals soon.

Aw, don't feel bad. I also cry out the dentist (out of fear, even before it hurts--I can't tell you how many dentists I've never gone back to because they yelled at me for being scared and that's NOT okay with me). And at my yearly physical. I'm a total baby. One time I even went and got sleep dentistry done, and all I really remember is that I cried and then it didn't hurt. And that I kept asking the dentist if he was really done, because it seemed to go so fast (pulling a wisdom tooth). I don't remember anything else about it.

Umm, what else? Oh yeah--have fun at the cottage!

Hi! I was having problems with my blog, so I had to make a different one. Same layout, different address. And hopefully this time people will be able to comment, unlike the last blog! :P

Bud Light Lime is NOT beer.

That is all.
