Oh my! Let's Play Catch Up!

Hello All!

So, while I was starting to download my latest pieces of photographic genius, I realized that it had been a long time since I have posted photos here, on my facebook page, or even on my PicasaWeb page. Well, that is now no longer the case!!! I have now uploaded (to PicasaWeb only so far) pictures that go as far back as September with my hiking in Menekada up to as recent as January 31, 2009 when I went Snowshoeing with Jacob and his parents.

Anywho, so I thought this blog post could simply be more of a promotion of my PicasaWeb page and an invitation to view some of my photography! Note: not all photography shown is proffessional!

If you go to www.picasaweb.google.com/karinabear00 you will find pictures such as these...
I love shadows! Especially ones that make me look like I have rediculously long legs!!!The sun attempting to peek through the cloudsOh my Murray! He is the only single (and he's super good looking) man on the Great Big Sea stage!!!
Ah yes! Sean McCann, another very handsome lad from Great Big Sea.

We then of course have the TL Christmas Partay!!!Cadid Shot! That would be Phillip, Ryan, and Alexis hanging out at our super cool Christmas Party!
Ryan and I posing for the camera! Some of the rest of the party goers! Of course the story behind these pictures is that I forgot that I had my camera with me. I remembered my camera just as the party was slowing down so I rushed to get some sort of documentation that we did indeed have a Christmas party.

Speaking of Christmas... We Mustn't forget Christmas Eve at Nate's new dwelling (I really wish I had gotten some pictures of Tracy's family... then again this was the first time we all met... I didn't want to frighten them! haha)So apparently in my family, it is imparative that the Christmas Festivities cannot begin until the first picture of someone's middle finger has been taken! Snap... Nate's middle finger... CHECK... DONE! (At least the bugger is smiling behind that erected finger of his!)Momford and Dad lounging away!
Jacob and I. (I think I caught him off guard in this picture. Not to mention the flash was super bright because the room was a little darker).Momford and I hangin' out!

Once Christmas Eve is over it's on to New Years Eve (I apparently neglected to take pictures on Christmas Day)It always starts with Craig and his Beer!Well, it looks like Amanda is ready to kick some serious gluteus maximus! Meanwhile, I just realized that Byron took no time changing into his Pijama pants. Wow Byron! And yes, we did play the Wii all night long!Amanda is armed and ready... to make us some yummy nutricious food! Mmmm... Brie!And of course the night tends to end when one person has passed out from exhaustion!

Anywho... those are only some of the new photos you can see on my PicasaWeb gallery! Feel free to check it out!

My Blogging Bandwagon Had a Flat

Hello to all out there in cyberspace,

I should really stop doing this but, yes it has been a LONG time since I have last blogged! November of 2008 to be exact! In fact, it is already the second month in the new year of 2009 and this is the first time I have blogged.

Having said that, I'm changing over a new leaf! Alright, so maybe it'll be the same leaf but I'm going to turn it over... and over, and over, and over once again until I get back into the swing of things. Speaking of swings... alright, you caught me. I've got nothing!

I need new ideas. I need inspiration. I need something to talk about. I need a snack!

Speaking of snacks... (haha and I do have something this time) I am trying to cut down on my snacks. I am trying to cut down on my "muffin top" or "water belly" as I like to call it. Yes, that's right, the once super ridiculously skinny Kari is now facing body image issues.
I never thought I would. I thought I had such a super confident sense of self no matter what came my way. Then again, that was when I was dancing 4 days a week for at least 1 to 2 hours at a time.

I used to be active. I used to be healthy. I used to be skinny. Now, not so much!

I am trying though! I bought a Tony Little Gazelle off of Craigslist for $50. What a bargain!!! It's super fun! Not just super fun... SUPER FUN!!! I try to work out at least 3 days a week on this thing. I find it hard though sometimes because I tend to feel quite bogged down after school or work and then I just don't want to! I enjoy watching the video that came with it though. Tony Little is CRAZY! But I do find him motivating for the most part. During the cool down, Tony talks about working out and how the hardest part is actually getting to and getting motivated to do the work out. He says though, "you always feel better after a workout". This is my cue to yell at Tony Little through my t.v. and say "BULL SH*T! I FEEL LIKE CRAP! I'm so tired, my legs hurt, my arms are throbbing and you KNOW my Rear End will not like me the next morning" To which he just smiles and continues telling me about how he got hit by a lobster truck. WHO GETS HIT BY A LOBSTER TRUCK???

Anyways, I digress... I think one of the hardest parts of losing weight is having stability. Maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise routine all the time. I guess it's more about self-discipline, and the fact that I have none! I need to be more motivated and self-disciplined.

Perhaps I can blog my efforts. Maybe that will keep me motivated. It could be entertaining to you all as well. I don't guarantee it, but I can try!

I'm going to attempt to start making some changes and adding some new stuff on here. If there is anything you wish to see on my blog please let me know. I'd really appreciate the feedback!
