My Missy Mac is in a bad, bad way...she's been ailing for the past year or so and I think she's giving up the vapors. It might be time to bite the bullet and go Mac shopping. STICKER SHOCK!
My husband always has to have the biggest and the best in electronics...so it's coming out of HIS biz account!
Good strategy right...he pays...I get to enjoy!
I'll have to save this blog as I go along...so if I get cut off mid sentence you'll know why.
Thank goodness for the edit button.
I'm on day 25 of my 28 day commitment to The Fast Metabolism Diet. It has gone well. I'm in my phase 2 rotation right now and that is mostly protein/veggie. I always seem to lose weight on this particular phase...no big Einstein moment here...it's why low carb has been all the rage throughout the U.S. for so many years.
BUT the thing about low carb is your body just can't sustain it for day after day after day, you get those carb cravings which is your poor beleaguered system saying I need carbs for brain function!
That's exactly why this diet plan is so effective. You get your two heavy carb days and then switch it up for two days of low carbs, then back to three days of carbs and protein and another necessity for good body function...healthy fats.
I LOVE Coconut oil, and coconut vinegar which has more nutrients that even Apple Cider vinegar...I'm learning a LOT from this wonderful plan...it's ALL good...except the extraordinary amount of cooking...how DID those pioneer women manage all of that?
Well...of COURSE...they didn't work outside the home..their work was COOKING and believe me it can easily overwhelm you on this plan. Or at least it's a real challenge for me.
I'm getting better though..I have actually taken a semi liking to my kitchen area. I'm actually enjoying my pots and pans and my pantry has never looked so spiffy and organized!
I'm looking forward to my Teddy Bear Challenge weigh in on Saturday and then I have just one more day left to fulfill my FULL 28 day challenge. I've never managed to stick with a diet so faithfully for that length of time so it surely shows you that this plan is effective and you are NEVER hungry, therefore not tempted to cheat and throw the whole darn thing into the crapper!
From that point I'll decide if I want to recycle through this again, or take a few weeks off as my good friend Carol suggested and then jump back in. OR...I could just go to another wonderful plan of Dr. Oz's OR back to my Tasa Reno's Clean Eating which I also love. It's good to have choices isn't it?
I haven't heard a word from the Friday/Saturday night dine in group this week. I heard plenty for the first 3 weeks we chose not to attend...now I think they are finally realizing I'm resolved to protecting my health with this new way of eating.
We most likely will attend future events...it's just so lonely without my rag team of adopted family...but we'll never get sucked into the crazy drama rama that we were subjected to before. I just am in a stronger mental place right now about resisting the storm surge this group can sometimes stir up. I'm healthier all over....physically and mentally.
I am continuing to put my energy into things that will most benefit the hubs and I not the constant tidal pool of this group's drama~rama's disfunction. It feels GREAT!
We need to get our consignment gallery ready to accept a very large paint inventory on my new endeavor CeCe Caldwell's Chaulk Paint. I have to add a shopping cart to my website for orders via the internet and that will free me up to make my jewelry available also. I also want to have a blog feature added. This will take some concentration and more important TIME.
I'm glad I'm in a better position now to do this than I have been for years. After losing our beautiful son I was so crippled that I had a hard time functioning in the day to day. I'm finally starting to come back from the netherworld of grieving him and his physical loss so strongly.
Of course I've ALWAYS known he is right here with me cheering me on...but I sure miss being able to squeeze his beautiful bod and I miss his snarky sense of humor and most of all his brilliant mind and smile. Love you Josher...you KNOW I always will!
Now I have one focus and that's the sweet angel guy I'm married to his awesome and supportive dad!
Isn't he just the CUTEST little hunk o hunk of burning love?
He's still sporting his beard and I think he wears it WELL! We do EVERYTHING together, we work together and have since 1988 (haven't killed each other yet) we have the same interests, and we have the same hopes and dreams to honor our Josh by helping out his many, many friends. It's what we do and we are blessed to have the crazy patch life we have...it's ALL good!
Yay...I made it through the blog...I highly recommend the post and edit..you outsmart the computer sometimes...on a good day that is!
Today is a GOOD, GOOD day. It's still early....ha ha...a funny in the early a.m!
