Wow, I must be toxic....

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

I stepped on my scale today first time in a while and it was down 7.9 pounds!!
I say toxic because I have been de-toxing for a few days- hot lemon water!! I tossed out granulated sugar and replaced it with truvia. I drink maybe cups of coffee, mostly I drink the hot lemon water and regular water. I am eating close to the earth, fruits and veggies with lean protien. I am still waiting for the book that will teach me what I need to know to retrain myself... Hopefully get it today on the nook. It won't load to my tablet and I can't find the actual nook in the horror of a room currently occupied by my dd.... Ugh

But, weight aside I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER. I have the detox cold, I lost my voice for Christmas, but am getting it back... It still cracks and I sound congested even though I am not. My friend tells me it just the toxins being released and this is how my body it responding to it. I have noticeable engery increases, and being more positive about everything!
Did I mention I am no longer watching the boys? Nope, however the mom is asking that I help out next week.... Hmmm sounds like a trap.
I am also looking into the local schools about their nursing programs. Why put it off any longer? We have two community colleges that are not a horrible distance, we have a four year college (not Cornell! Or Ithaca College) where I found I qualify for an immediate $21,000 scholarship of the 36K it would cost to get an RN. There are teaching hospitals locally as well, they offer free tuition for a diploma if I sign the contract to work there for a few years. I think I would prefer a degree, just in case the world takes that trip to hell the Bible predicts and I am stuck here for some it. ( whole new discussion on pre-post trib stuff. I am 100% a pre-tribe believer!) emoticon
Once I get my book, I will use this blog to be my outlet as I continue to change my attitude and lifestyle. It may not be all happy rainbows and unicorns and emoticon . It may even involve coarse language, depends on my withdrawal symptoms. Lol it will be an interesting journey, an adventure full of twists and turns(ab workouts), ups and downs(aerobics) and all around sarcasm, because I cannot survive without it!
