I have a bunch of random stuff on my mind this morning and I feel like sharing. Here we go:
I don't tolerate bigotry, intolerance or ignorance of any kind. I come from an amazing lineage. African and Hungarian on one side and African and Native American on the other. It makes it easy for me to relate to every shade of person and it also means I get a beatiful golden tan in the summer. THANKS GRAMPS!!
I was the mother of a child with special needs, the cousin of a boy with autism, the niece and cousin of homosexuals, and the list goes on. I love them all and wouldn't change them. If you don't like them or me, or better yet, if you don't like OUR president simply because he looks like ME and not like YOU, SCREW YOU! That is in no way a political endorsement, it is recognizing that I have witnessed people validating their dislike of him with bigoted comments and attempting to backup those comments with "facts" that are really "opinions" which are really dumb because their is proof otherwise and then having the nerve to say you are a Christian but then use speak words of hate and judgement. As a TRUE Christian I will pray for our nation as a whole, our president in particular, and for Governor Romney and his family through this time.
Glad I got that out of the way. Second on my agenda: How happy I am that Mike & Ike broke up!
I hate having to pick out the nasty green and yellow ones. Now I can get only the delicious ones. And a serving of 23 candies is only 140 calories! Starburst caught the hint too and now makes only Reds which has all their berry flavors one in a pack.
****TMI ALERT!!! TMI ALERT!!! TMI ALERT!!!***
I have been extremely constipated lately.
This morning I had the worst cramps. I think I know the culprit. I NEED TO STOP EATING BREAD AND RED MEAT COMPLETELY! I know this would help. Currently I only eat red meat 2-3 times a month, usually in the form of lean ground beef. Last night I had a 10 oz steak. Taste good going down, immediately I felt like I had made a mistake. I felt bloated and tight. Yesterday at lunch I had a small baguette with my soup. Considering that I ate both bread and red meat yesterday and I have been slowly reducing them in my diet, would fully explain why I felt like crap this morning. I have been drinking green tea to try to ease the discomfort. I just wish I had the willpower to get rid of bread for good.
I get my hair done Saturday morning and I am sooo excited. I have been wearing a sew-in weave for 6 months ( not the same one) and for all my beautiful Caucasian brothers and sisters, a sew-in is very similar to your extensions. My entire life I had this full, thick, reddish brown mane of hair. Literally, it looked like this
except a lot bigger. It had its advantages and disadvantages. The plus, when my hair was flat-ironed, it was GLORIOUS!! It was very long, thick and flowy. The down-side, it was too hard to manage, the moment it was touched by any moisture it would turn into a cotton ball and it didn't have much versatility. A couple of years ago, to the dismay of my family, friends and hairdresser, I chopped it off. I had it cut into a very short pixie. I loved it!! Well when I decided to start this weight loss journey for the second time around, I didn't want to worry about my hair, so I got a sew-in. And I must say, my hairdresser did an amazing job because everyone thinks its my hair! Well Saturday I am taking it out (human hair is waaay too expensive) and gettng my hair cut and colored. Hopefully I will have a cute bob. I just hope that it doesn't slow down my workouts because us black women do not like getting our hair messed up!!!
Well, I think that is all the potpourri I have on my mind right now. Feel free to add your own random thoughts. Don't feel free to comment if you have something political to say! THANKS A BUNCH!
