For Christmas frank bought me tickets to see John Edward, world famous Medium and psychic. We went to dinner at PF CHangs first and had a great time.
John Edward has amazing abilities. I am not going to get into it here but you can Google him if you are interested. He is the real deal!
I did not get "read" but I didn't expect to. I have several people I love who have crossed over but I am at peace with all of them. Yes I miss them but I do not feel like I need to talk to them to figure stuff out. There were a lot of people there last night that did and I hope they found the answers that they were looking for. Mostly, it is just knowing that they love us and want us to be happy until we can be together again.
That is a very watered down version of things but it was a real treat to be able to be in the audience I can tell you that. If you ever get the chance, watch him on TV or go see him. It will be worth it for sure!!!

I had a fabulous weekend...we watched the miners win last night and today we went to ride our razors...it was fun. It tow of the 5 of us ended up flipping! The first guy was a very gentle flip, the second guy was as we were going up a very steep hill and he went over and landed on the front of our machine!!! All very exciting but we are grateful today that we all came home from a day of fun safe and sound. Things can change fast you guys. Don't forget that!
As we enter our third week of January, I want to know how you are doing? I feel like I'm really getting refocused and it makes me very happy. Hope you are all well and making progress!

We suddenly ended up having friends over to watch the play offs today. The game starts at 5. So I launched into instant party mode....went to winco for pizza, got some wings to bake myself and sauce how I want, I had veggies so I cut them up with a light ranch dip, have baked chips and salsa, and now I am sitting for a minute before I cut up a cantaloupe, and throw some strawberries on a tray.
I also baked some cupcakes (diet soda ones, YO!) So I could even have a cupcake and desert for those who want a lighter treat. KADy is bringing home something fattening from the bakery she works at, which I will NOT be eating.
Then my friend said he was bringing some brisket from this great BBQ place so my meal, which I am going to track after this blog, will be a small slice of ham and pineapple pizza, some brisket (yeah protein!) A serving of baked chips and salsa, all the veggies and fruit I want to munch on, and one yummy little gold and red light lemon cupcake. I ate a decent breakfast and lunch so I WILL stay in my range today, even with a party happening!
GO! JAN! GO! Oh yea, NINERS, TOO!

Hello my sparkies!
What a week this has been! Wednesday began my sugar detox and I have completed day 5 with no sugar. I feel great and while there have been times when I felt like eating some sugary deliciousness, I didnt. Not even 1 bite.
That makes me very happy and very proud of myself.
It makes me remember that I am stronger than I think I am (if you haven"t caught any of ITSMATT's blogs, he is very good at reminding us of that).
I also remember that when I DECIDE something, I am pretty good at DOING it.
I was getting back to a place where I wanted what I wanted. I didnt feel strong enough to use the tools I had (such as distraction, substitution and plain old just saying no to my inner brat). That was a slow integration into uphill lines instead of downhill lines graphing my weight loss. It was a slow fit comfortably into my size 20's instead of them being too big. It was a slow, foggy walk.
Well, I let myself forget alot of stuff (see my blog from last wednesday) but I REMEMBER now and I am building on that every day.
I tease about being a super hero but I really did earn my cape this week.
I think I just needed to stop allowing myself the "treats" that I thought I earned, not just during the holidays but in the whole last year. Fruits and veggies are my old/new best friends.
Good enough really isn't. It is not good enough to get me smaller, healthier or stronger and that is what I want. That is why I am here. My goals have not changed so my behavior needs to get in line with that.
Im telling ya, kids, I am feeling great! And if I can make the switch, so can you.

Mostly, let's make this year the one where we really make a difference. In our lives, our bodies and our community.
GET OUT THERE AND EARN YOUR CAPE!
