Aimless, wondering thoughts…

My B-Day:

Thank you all for the birthday wishes and encouragement to stay healthy! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I was both good and bad during my birthday… I had pasta with alfredo sauce, bread with EEVO, 2 glasses of wine and oreo cheesecake… I ate a full bread stick with the EEVO, ½ my pasta dish and the 2 glasses of wine the night of my birthday.

My birthday party was ok… Of the 57 people I invited, only 10 showed up and 3 were family members… We had a ‘Premier Design’ party, with my co-worker as the Jewelry Lady. It was fun. Some of my friends didn’t know that I knew sign language, let alone enough to be an interpreter.

Following my birthday party on Sunday, I finished the rest of the pasta dish and all of the oreo cheesecake. I did gain 7 lbs during my birthday, but I did lose 5lbs! I also went off meds for Fri-Sun. I got back on meds starting yesterday.

June Birthday Mural:

I finished the mural of the beach scene for the hospital. It turned out gorgeous! I did an amazing job on the backdrop, the glasses and even used real sand from Puerto Rico. I was given $25 cash and my mom can claim my work as OT… So, overall I made $100 for my efforts. For July, I’m doing a painted firecracker scene … I plan on using glitter to make the explosions look a little better…

F, S&ND:

I finally got around to watching that documentary, “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead”. I was quiet surprised watching the youtube clip (full 1:37:12 mins) of it. I was thinking about the post that ‘Time2Bloom4Me’ does about her juicing success and stories of her convincing her hubby to get health too… Sorta nice when you have a support team in your house, who are willing to help you get healthy.
I don’t have that type of support yet. My mom, who is a diabetic, tends to bring in the sweets, sugar, treats, coffees, and junk food into the house. I have been buying veggies, fruits, juice, to which she will use to make supper with or tosses out, cause she doesn’t like it. My sis on the other hand wants me to eat salads with her 24/7… I’m not there yet, or I would take my sis up on her offer. I did eat vegan today. The first time to eat vegan in a very long time…

Diatomaceous Earth:

I did order 1lbs of the diatomaceous earth food grade on amazon for my birthday gift to myself. I plan on trying it for a solid 3 months and see what happens. I may give some to the dogs and cats too, if I have enough… The articles online and youtube clips say to drink 1 tbsp in the morning with water, mixed into a smoothie/juice or in breakfast food; and another 1tbsp at night or with dinner. I’ll keep ya’ll posted on what happens with me and if I notice a change from drinking it.


I got invited by my friends to go play bingo with them and one of the lady’s mom. I agreed to go, hopefully it will be fun and interesting. I don’t play bingo normally, cause there are some die-hard hardcore bitty’s that get p.o.-ed if you win on your first time going… Thus, I try to avoid any harm to myself or the bittys…


I need to walk more, or so I’m told. I hit sorta lazy spell cause of my birthday. Now, I gotta kick my bum and get into gear. I still have the weight loss challenge to lose 32 lbs in 16 weeks. I’m surrently at a standstill at 327. I need to be 310 or less by June 10th in 6 days. So, 3 lbs a day for the next 6 days… Ya, that looks a tad bit unhealthy goal coming from me… But, who knows! Maybe I’ll lose the 17 lbs with the help of the diatomaceous earth… Or by going on that 3 oz diet thingy…

My nutritionist wants me to jump start my metabolism by eating 3 oz of protein, 3oz of veggies, 3 oz of fruit, every 2 ½ hours. I’m not too fond of the idea of 6 meals a day for 4 days straight…… Maybe it will work, or maybe I need to do the reboot thingy from F, S & ND…… Either way, I need to go on a fast.

    wow! I am exhausted just reading it all- what is diatomaceous earth? I have visions of you eating dirt from the dinosaur age or something- I actually think the nutritionist plan is good- I do better with little mini meals than three bigger meals. I bet you would be surprised by the results. I have this problem being good at the celebration meals and then bad afterwards- hence my taco bell and pizza last night after being good sat and sun.
    I also have another night out planned on Friday- People in WWs swear by skinny girl wine and cocktails- I just hope I don't need to drink two full bottles by myself to get a buzz-lol! But I don't want to be like last night out when I puffed up like a balloon in 12 hrs and gained 4 lbs by Mon night weighin at WWs.- Wish we had been able to go out together to celebrate your bday- we would have had fun! emoticon emoticon
