Monday Weigh In

First things first, I lost 1lb this week. Normally I would be wishing that it was more (ok, I still wish it was more) BUT I'm finally at the 30lb mark! :D My starting weight back in the winter was 279lbs. I still can't believe that I got back up to that weight.. I was in such denial! This morning, I weighed in at 249lbs! I'm so happy to be in the 240's, but I'm super anxious to be in the 230's. I know that once I hit the 230's I'll really start to notice the change in my body and that is exciting! 

My weekend was very low-key. It was nice and relaxing, but I was starting to get a little stir-crazy by sunday. Luckily I had some freelance work to get done, which kept my busy. The fall-like weather over the weekend also had me in the mood for soup. I love making soup in the fall! So I gathered all the ingredients for one of my favourites, chicken pot pie soup from Skinny Taste. This soup is the best! It tastes like you're eating the inside of  pot pie and it's healthy :) It will be my lunch for the week. 

It's an extra-short week for me (3 days!). Since we weren't really taking any holidays this summer (besides the occasional day off), ross and I decided to go on a mini vaca to Cottage Country. "Cottage Country" is a couple hours north of Toronto where all the city folk go on the weekends during the summer to get away. It really is gorgeous there, but I grew up in Northern Ontario where I was 5 minutes from a lake in any direction and all my friends had camps, NOT "cottages". The word cottage seems so pretentious.. I actually hate saying it, but everyone down here looks at me funny when I say "camp". 
Anyway, we're heading to a Bed and Breakfast that's right on the lake and is the top rated BnB in Muskoka. It looks gorgeous and I'm excited to get away for a few days. We have are own private suite, access to a hot tub, kayaks, boats, paddle boats, a beach etc. I really want to stay in the 240's so I'm going to try my best to stay on track and get lots of activities in :)

This is where we're going :)  source
