So today I am on a sugar high thanks to my mom fulfilling my request list from the states. Peeps from every holiday and Red Vines licorice! :) Yup...PURE SUGAR! Not regretting a peep! :) LOVE THEM and when you get them every 2 years...who cares if you splurge and eat them and savour them...YUUUUUM! She sent me 2 pounds of Red Vines so I will ration the rest!! But I actually ate them and started craving chicken and vegetables....weird huh? Who knew. Also sent me some faux Crystal Light since I love it and my man is diabetic and it's better than coke. I use as a treat if we go to someone's house and want to look all schnazzy! :)

Anywho...I am starting to come down from my sugar high! She also send my grandparent's ashes to me and some gifts and my Walgreens Cold Cream....it's really the little things you miss....most of which are REALLY cheap in my case! :)

And I almost forgot...last night at the gym we had a member's party and my boss got me every flavour of Pringles because she knows I like them and didn't know which flavour I liked...LOL Yes...those of you who know me, these are my kryptonite! :) So sweet. Everyone knows my weakness. Turn down everything from cake to regualr chips to BBQ...but Pringles especially bought for me...awwww.....:) Nice feeling to know that my wee splurges this week were due to people actually thinking about me and what I love most! Nice. :)

    I think I got a sugar rush by proxy, just from reading your blog! How wonderful that your spoils are coming from people around you who know what you love -- warm fuzzies!

That's what my man is calling me after yesterday!! The garage door was 1/2 up and I ducked, but not enough and slammed the top of my head into the door. It hurt like a mother! I cried and wailed in pain in front of my man and 2 of his work collegues...nice...NOT! Then as I was doing stock between the garage and my car, I ducked and missed the door...but on the way back into the garage, actually hit my forehead on the door...seriously! That one hurt and anytime I hit my face I get paranoid! But Man...Feeling extra blonde!!!

Now..today I have felt really tired, craving carbs, headaches, and very out of it and "off". A client rang me and immediately asked "You don't sound like Patty"...and I was trying to act "patty"...LOL....BUSTED....I explained...she laughed and told me to go to bed. I have stuck to my plan today eating wise, but exercise yesterday and today ain't happening and I feel like sour gummy candy!!! I have 2 clients I have to see in a little bit and then I will come home and go to bed me thinks! But have a new client I want to get menu plans printed out for and I am switching up another client's food on Thursday as well...Just feel very BLAH! Hope tomorrow is better. I have a VERy busy day from 9 AM - 9 PM!!! I need my brain back, :)
Have a great week!

    yeouch!! I hate hitting my head like that! Of course, I don't think I've met someone who has ever said they enjoy it.. I think your body is trying to say slow down.. lol. In situations like this, my thought is, Ok, what would I tell my friend (or client) if they told me this story, and then I try to see if I can take my own advice. half the time I can't though. I'm glad you will be able to rest up a bit. Feel Better!

Brilliant Idea From Client -> $=Calories

Sunday, March 06, 2011

One of my clients had a brilliant way to look at eating calories everyday and staying within her range! Some people struggle with calories for some reason, but I thought this was a GREAT way and I would even say use Real money and/or Monopoly money and make it even fun for you!!!!

She looks at 1200 calories as $1200. That's how much she can "spend"....so...when she eats 204 calories, she spends $204 leaving her with a balance of $996. Now...she also is extremely active in sports, so she gets "PAID" $100 - $300 extra a day when she plays her sports! Get the idea???

I hate math...but I love to shop! :) I just thought it was such a great idea that I had to share it. Ya' never know what might make it "click" for someone just by looking at things differently. I think the physical act of having play money everyday and depositing it into a Bank with your goal pictures or something and getting "paid" for being active could make this fun! Have your hubby, wife, co-worker, or kids etc pay you and take payment. The possibilities are endless!

Not So Sunny Sunday!

Sunday, March 06, 2011

It has been downpouring last night and today...we even got hail! Crazy! Then it would get really warm and sunny and then WHAM - Buckets! And it was cold!

Get Ink'd for Christchurch was held today at Epic Ink Tattoo and Piercing. It is a country wide event to help pay for an artist who died in the quake and other Christchurch victims. I got a mushroom on my inner right ankle for my Opa. We had a inside joke about Mushrooms that ended up being a story told to every dinner guest at some point! LOL

My grandfather (Opa in german) and I use to go away for weekends and took holidays together. One weekend we went to Chicago and went to Beni hanna (my favourite restaurant now). While they were cutting things up and cooking them in front of us, all of a sudden I looked down and there were mushrooms on my plate. I frowned and almost started crying saying "i don't like them" and my Opa got stern and German on my ass and said "don't you dare say something. You will eat them right now." as a tear went down my face I gulped and ate it...and then I wanted everyone elses mushrooms...including his!!! Since that day I love mushrooms!!!! So my Opa had to tell that story to everyone. :) Everytime I eat one, it remind me of him! And I know when he ate them it reminded him of me.

I told my man I was meeting a friend for a hot chocolate....HA HA...nope...another Tattoo! He called me a little later and said 'I love you" and I responded with "Remember that!!!" LOL He started laughing and said Patsy (that's what he calls me) what did you do!? He still hasn't seen it...but I did text him a pic. :)

Off to watch SAW6...Have a great week everyone over here and enjoy your Sunday to the USA peeps!
