So are they or aren't they? ROFLMAO!!

Monday, September 10, 2012

Ok first off, I have never been able to buy dress boots of any style or hieght because of my fat legs; big feet; and to top it off a high arch.

Well today I found the perfect boots!

One they fit!

Two I think they are gorgeous! Black leather; buttons up the side; High boot just below the knee.

I asked my son to take a picture for me. They are not the best photos, because I am laughing so hard my gut is showing, but who cares! Also this is probably not the outfit I would wear them with. I would probably use leggings or a different skirt.

The reason I am laughing so hard is my son's reluctance to take the picture.

You see he thinks his Mom bought hooker boots!

I am laughing so hard!

Ok so are they? or aren't they?

Hugs!
Angela

ps.. Doesn't matter! I still love them!

    Lovin' those boots and you in 'em! You look DYNAMITE! When I think of hooker boots, I think of Pretty woman - the kind that come up above the knee with a skirt that barely covers your naught bits. You could probably pull those off too - but I wouldn't recommend that. Your kid would probably have a coronary! LOL!

    I want 'em! I have the same problem!

I wanna be "Grok Granny da Horrifying Hooker" for my grandchildren. I love doing outrageous things to make them laugh!

One time I grabbed my grandson from behind while he was leaving Target and started dragging him off. It was hysterical. His was screaming, "Daddy! Daddy!" When they both saw it was me? It didn't register at first. Then we couldn't stop laughing.

My savage beast is alive and well inside. Send boots. Will pre-pay shipment!

THE SUMMER HAS FLOWN BY MY FRIENDS...

Sunday, August 19, 2012

The Summer has flown by my friends, as I am sure you have found as well.

September is arriving at a rapid pace and for those of us fortunate to have had time off, must start to regain our routines. To regain control if you have lost it over the past few weeks.

We can do this! WE are doing this!

I relaxed some of my strict guidelines while vacationing…yes I did have some ice cream to cool down. Now while I usually made lower calorie choices, I did indulge.

BUT I stayed within or very close to my calorie goals.

I worked out! Yes I did even while vacationing in Arizona and Vegas, for that I am very proud of myself.



On holiday with my Girlfriends (GF), we did boot camp 2.5 hours’ worth almost every day. On the days we didn’t do this we walked, and I can’t tell you how far we walked but it was huge. In the heat I think this was even harder than the boot camp! Yikes!



Yes I drank a ton of water!

I did suffer heat stroke on one of our days of hiking. We jogged and walked for 3 hours with a 20 minute break at the Starbucks on the way (that was what enticed me to go in the first place). By the time we got back I was a dripping mass of exhaustion. We jumped in the pool as fast as we could and spend the remainder of the day in the sunshine. By evening I was feeling pretty darn rotten; headache; naseau; dizziness, just not fun.
So thankful one of my friends realized what it was and I upped my salt intake – soon was feeling chipper again.

We had a blast together 4 best buddies on holiday; working out; shopping; lazing by the pool; eating healthy; and of course enjoying our margaritas’ and each other.

After all that I can even say I liked my legs in a skirt! Looked more like loaves of french bread in a dress though LOL!



Travelled to Vegas too! OMG!! We had a Penthouse Suite at the Bellagio Hotel on the 29th floor overlooking the Fountains! SWEET!!!



I have never stayed anywhere so fine! Did you know that the VIP guests have their own check-in with Butler and goodies at all times??? Neither did I! We even used Valet parking!

You have to understand that I am a simple farm girl, truly. That is how I was raised, yes, over the years I am becoming more of a Diva, only because I am learning to love myself and take care of me too. The surroundings and our experiences where heavenly, if I have one wish, it would be for you to experience something like this at least once in your life.

We dined at Wolf Gang Puck’s in Caesar’s Palace; Olive’s at the Bellagio; and let’s face it this time the diet went out the window as we hit the bars. I counted all my food intake and recorded it ALL while away, I did not count my drinks on the advice of my Dietician/Nutritionist. I do not normally drink, but when I am with this group of friends we do have a couple.

The shopping was phenomenal! For a Canadian Girl you lucky US citizens have smoking deals! Love, Love, love my new wardrobe!

It was good to get home to my boys; I had missed them a lot. This little getaway makes us all appreciate each other that little bit more.



We did have a vacation together as well, visiting my brother and his family in Victoria, BC on Vancouver Island. We love it there so much, and hope to move there one day. Had lots of love and laughs with my family, precious times!



Since things are getting back to normal, I have been painting walls in the basement and doing minor home renovations. Getting to the things you never seem to have time for.

Been back to the gym and upping the ante. Did TRX training with a friend who is deeply involved in weight lifting, she has even had me doing the bench presses with the big barbells, all that you envision more men doing than ladies.

Started my kickboxing today and I sure can feel my workout(s). All is good, I can still walk! LOL!

Will add some pictures of my holiday and a new full body shot; at the request of one of my groups I belong to.



Overall the summer was great, lost a couple of pounds and inches. Nothing great, but it will come and it is all in the right direction. No gains! Yeah!

Hope each of you enjoyed your summer and continue to enjoy what is left.
Falling back into routine with the Fall.

Hugs,
Angela

Thanks for the encouragement. Holding my own. Probably won't enter round 2 with a weight loss, but it ain't over yet! (Sept. 5). Definitely still have some lingering hormonal stuff that hopefully the next round will nip in the bud. But, being able to hold pretty steady in the weight this time around, is all she expected and I'm close to my target.

Have a great one!!

After realizing I was wallowing in a pit of despair and my judgment was impaired; I have decided to rescind my decision of abdication and resume leadership of the team I love.

Thank you all for your outpouring of love and support.



From the depths of despair, I will triumph and reach for the stars.



With the help of my friends....

...all is possible.

    I disagree with John Ellot. People aren't viewed as geniuses once they are proved right. They are viewed as unbearable.

Glad that you're back at the helm of a team.

Love,
Laurie

Thank you

Sunday, July 01, 2012

Thank you my friends for the kindness and care you show me every day. The response to my blog 'BROKEN' was overwhelming and you all put things into perspective to eloquently.
I needed a butt kick and some of you were kind enough to do that to. I appreciate it.
It is not like me to be down, and I will not be for long.
Already taking steps to rectify things and improve my health, for I think this has been having an adverse effect on my dispostion.
My blood sugars have been creeping up and I have been feeling terribly sluggish. I think this is due to the fact I was trying to follow my Nutritionalist's advice, in adding flour and more calories to my diet. I have tried this, truly. I always end up feeling sick, I need to eat clean. Now to focus and do so.
Hugs and love,
Angela

    Sorry for last post, it posted after just the one letter and no way to delete it

What I wanted to say is that I live you and you need to take care of yourself.
And follow what your body tells you not just the NUT. They speak textbook but we are not textbook cases my friend. :-)

Much love

    Angela, Keep hanging in there.
I\ve tried to write something motivational...but, all I can do is encourage you to persevere. You'll get back to the energetic feeling when your nutrition is where you know it balances for you.

    Angela I hope you are feeling better soon and can get your sugars and food regulated. It really does a number on your body when those things are not right.

Take care.

    Here is what I am doing with my current program, and actually with all the health professionals I work with....

I politely listen but then I have enough knowledge of nutrition myself (PALEO!) and even more than that, I KNOW my body and how it responds to different foods. That is a blessing! That is all you need to do. Listen to your body over what any nutritionist tell you. YOU know what affects your blood sugar. YOU know what makes you feel good and what makes you feel like crap! THEY DON'T!

Chew up the fish and spit out the bones, I say! In other words, take in what they say but make it your own.

    Good to hear you're re-tuning your nutrition, Angela - it's an ongoing adjustment process that really is relentless and hugely impactful day by day. Here's to gettin' a great handle on it very very fast - love to hear you sounding more like healthy-most you 'cause it means you're FEELING it!

(an aside: My daughter (diabetes for 31 yrs now, since age 5) followed the advice of a good gym coach who sounded like he knew about this disorder, with nearly disastrous results a few years ago. Thing was, he was dealing with Type II clients, not Type I such as she. Neither of them thought of the diferences. -- Yet, as she says, all you can do is learn as you go, be your own best educated and active advocate, and do your best to figure it out. Sooo tricky at times. -- Gluten not an issue for you, I hope.)

    Im glad you got what you needed from your vent.

And seriously? Adding flour is meant to be a good move? I can think of WAY better ways to add calories to an eating plan!
