    Owie, Ecks! My MIL was trying to tempt me with breaded mushrooms today, and I was actually a bit afraid. I said no. I love mushrooms... *sigh* I do hope everything heals up OK.

    A massive raise, eh? This is always good. Does this mean you're hosting a party for us?

    Hi All! Sorry I've been so absent this weekend been uuber busy with picking up my best friend from the airport 2 hours away on friday, and a wedding all day yesterday. But I'm here and I'm back! I'm just going to list the unpaleo things I ate the past few days instead of trying to recall everything I ate.

    At my bestfriend's brothers place
    Glass of whisky
    Sweet Potato Chips (made with canola makes them unpaleo)

    At the wedding
    Salad dressing was most likely canola oil
    Low quality cheese
    Dessert at wedding was a vanilla ice cream ball in the middle of a chocolate ice cream ball rolled in truffle powder topped with whipped cream and a mint leaf.
    2 Cigarillos (as in smoked not "eaten" lol)

    Wedding was so much fun yesterday! I was apprehensive about it though. Wasn't quite sure how I felt about the bride to be honest. But it was a great ceremony and there was great food and after the first 2 hours of country music (which I respect but can't dance to) there was good music to follow!

    Last dance of the night was a slow dance. I was outside up until like right before it started. Got in and there was maybe 6 couples on the floor and the girl I had been eying all night but didn't really know/approach sitting off to the sidelines. So I did something I've never done before- asked a complete stranger to dance with me. It was an awesome dance too- you can tell she felt upset or left out when all of the couples made their way and she had no one to dance with- she nestled into my chest and held me close. It was nice- I honestly can't remember the last time I held a girl like that. When the dance was over she pulled back, looked up at me, introduced herself then gave me a kiss on the cheek, she thanked me, then half walked away, but wouldn't let go of my hand. It was cute. All in all a great feeling.

    And of course my first Sunday of the month post wouldn't be proper without a weigh in! I'm down to 269.4 from 273.4 on May 22nd (22nd not being a Sunday but being my 6 month weigh in if you all recall). For those playing the home game I'm up to 63.6LBS off! Woo!

    Always awkward. I've been to weddings and have thought, I don't think it's going to last very long. Is that bad ?!? None of them have been close friends of mine, otherwise, I would have said something.

    263.6? Is that a typo? Still, very good progress. Congrats!

    And congrats for working up the courage to step out of your comfort zone. Now we all want to know, did you get her number? LOL!

    And no, I didn't go for the number. I knew she was from ottawa and that getting the number would be pointless. It was just a fleeting moment. I think I needed one of those.

    Ottawa really is a great town! I just don't know how I feel about perusing someone in a different city. It was just nice to have the dance with her- gave me a new sense of energy.

    So today was another long one. Partially because yesterday was long. Was expected to be at the morning after the wedding breakfast with the fam n whatnot. There for 9am which isn't too bad but it's still accross town and I barely got to sleep.

    Food blog!

    Breakfast- Steak, 3 eggs, 7 slices of bacon, small bowl of strawberries, 3 slices of tomato, 3 orange slices

    Lunch (if you can call it that, I came home at 4 from a long day and grabbed more of a snack before passing out)- 2 hotdogs and a square of lindt 90.

    And dinner (again if you can call it that)- small piece of chorizo and some perrier
