A Different World

Hello out there.

Long time no post. Thought I should take it up again. Gives me something to do ;)

So let's update.

I still have the twinsies and now I have one more on the way.

I am very close to divorcing the d-bag that was the twinsies father.

I found someone wonderful to share my life with and we live together now.

I live very far from the city that I once lived in and it's nice and quiet here.

The only thing I really miss is my friends and family and my job. Obviously!

This is the happiest I've ever been in my entire life. . .that's saying a lot.

Back to the Dating Pool

So my relationship of. . .awhile had ended. Kinda sucks but there's nothing I can do about it.

As it is - I don't think it's too easy for me to meet someone and have a meaningful relationship.

I never have an issue with guys asking me out - unfortunately most of them are weirdos.

Let me think back to some of the winners I had.

One guy seemed nice. Handsome, pretty decent. We started chatting via text. Just usual conversation. Then he tells me that he would like to sex wrestle me(?!) and that I should be a bodybuilder. Very weird how the conversation came to that with no prompting from me. I think the final straw is when he told me was "built like a black guy" and sent me a d*ck pic. So that was the end of that.

Another one I actually did go on a date with again seemed nice enough. We had our first and only date. He told me that he really liked country music and absolutely LOVED "Creed." Yeah, I can't dig anyone who likes Creed so that was the end of that.

I guess it was great meeting J because he was . . .normal! I was very happy about that. At least I know there are decent guys out there but he lived really far away from me.

Now I got hop right back into that "Dick-pic, Creed-lovin'" dating pool. *Sigh* Wish me Luck - HA!

Happy Birthday to My Lil' Boo Bears :)

My lil' weenie tots turned 7! I am so freakin' old :S

Bought three cakes for them --> two for school and one for at home.

Asked them if they liked their birthday party and they said yes, they loved it and their cool presents.

Glad they don't realize they're having a huge party on Saturday. . .takes so little to please children lol!

The twins like this song for some reason?! No clue.

Sacred Heart Diet

Okay, I promised this update of my weight. I dropped to 151!! Hey, I think 5 pounds is pretty awesome for one week. I think I'll stick to the Veggies, Fruit and Protein thing. I even cheated and had Ceasar salads - so I think that's pretty amazing. Still need to pump up the exercise. All in all I'm very pleased - especially with the energy I have now and my face clearing up.

Don't think I can stick to it forever though because . . .well. . .I LOVE carbs. . .they're delish! But I can handle a few weeks until I'm ON DE PLANE :D

Here's a throwback I heard on G98.7 - man, I miss music like this sometimes. I especially love that she's not the thinnest chick on the planet and has curves and a great voice.

Trinidad Carnival 2013

So less than a month away I'll be boarding a plane and heading to the twin Caribbean islands of Trinidad & Tobago for Carnival.

I'll be jumping up with Miz Mel and Miz Li :)

Totally and completely a once in a lifetime thing that I'm absolutely thrilled to be doing. . .except. . .I'm not in great shape :S

I had started one diet but since I cheated constantly on it, I gained a ton of weight!

So terrible and now the time is too short for me to lose the weight I gained plus the weight I originally wanted to lose (damn you holidays for being so delicious!)

So I'm just going to try to eat healthy for the next couple of weeks before I leave.

I started this diet on Thursday which is supposed to be a type of cleanse. 

It's called the Sacred Heart Diet. I had read of another blogger who said she tried it and lost 8 pounds. Although the diet promises between 10 to 17 I was thinking . . .even 5 to 8 sound amazing to me for one week!

I also thought it was a good way for me to curb the cravings that I'm feeling all the time.

So on Wednesday I went and did a big grocery shop with my dad and had my grocery cart filled with fruits and veggies galore. Anything I liked I picked up.

When I got home my mom helped me make the soup. The only thing I couldn't find were green beans (weirdly?!) and so I subbed in sugar snap peas and zuccini.

Day One is a Fruit and Soup day.

I had packed two bowls of the soup. I had bought a fruit salad to take with me for breakfast. I cut up strawberries, pears and added grapes and cherries to a container to take. When I got to work I ate the fruit salad for breakfast and drank some herbal tea. I took out some fruit and ate it. Had the soup for lunch. When UJ saw it she said "Wow, that looks like a super healthy soup!" I said it was but it was kinda bland. I guess because it had no meat in it.

 I had ordered a platter of sub sandwiches for a client who was in and there were a ton of leftovers. I took three to take home but MAN, those sandwiches smelled good and I COULD NOT take a bite :(
J kept pushing all this banana bread on me too so I finally took it to give to the twins. UJ gave me hers too. I ate my fruits but the banana bread smelled really good. I was definitely craving carbs but I stuck it out. I had started to get a headached. Probably from the lack of carbs and processed sugar my body is used to so I took a Tylenol and headed home.

When I got home. . .I can't describe it. . . I felt SO sleepy and I didn't even eat the second bowl of soup. I just wasn't that hungry. I went to bed at 8:30 which I never do but really needed the shut eye.

Day Two is Veggie and Soup day.

I only packed one bowl of the soup for work. I cut up carrots, broccoli, peppers(orange & yellow) and cucumber (no clue if that's a veggie or fruit). I also took some spinach greens for breakfast.

I had a cup of tea at work. I started on the greens. Really bland without dressing. Around lunchtime I had my soup. And it totally hit. . .I felt REALLY AWAKE! The diet does say you'll feel that on the third day but it happened to me on my second. I got so much work done. I was really pleased because I had been lagging on an audit I had to finish. I snacked on the veggies.

When I got home I had some baked potato with butter. It was good. . .but not great. Filling though. I didn't eat anything else after that. All through I've been drinking as much water as I can.

Day Three is Fruits and Veggies Day with Soup.

Today would be a real test. It was the weekend now and I was home. I had to go out with my mom and the twins. Also, plans later on that night with friends.

I ate an avocado for breakfast and had some tea. I got in a small workout which was nice. Before we all left I ate some of the soup. At the mall while my family feasted away on KFC, I managed to scrounge a garden side salad from Burger King that consisted of LOTS of lettuce, two slices of tomato, two baby carrots and one slice of cucumber. It was so cold it hurt my teeth. Thank goodness I brought a few clementines to snack on. I was dying to go home because I was so HONGRAY!

When I got home Miz Li said she was on her way. I was already dressed so I figured not to worry. After a while of waiting I got super hungry and decided to eat more of the soup. Unfortunately I spilled it on my jeans and that was when Miz Li called to say she was here :S

I tried to change as quickly as possible and headed out still super hungry. When we all arrived at Denny's finally. I saw nothing on the menu that was only fruits or veggies. I decided to break my diet and have a chicken Ceasar salad. It tasted AMAZING! I guess because I had had nothing with dressing or meat in a few days. When I got home I only drank water and hit the hay early.

Day Four is Bananas/Skim Milk

I had an avocado and two bananas for breakfast with some tea. I worked out again. I was happy for that. I ate one bowl of the soup for lunch before I went out. Walked to the grocery store and bought some steaks for lunch tomorrow.

When I got home I had another avocado and a mango. I had my last banana with a glass of skim milk. I'm not especially fond of milk. I probably could have skipped it. My mom made the steaks and tomatoes for me to have for lunch tomorrow. I cheated again and ate some but found it pretty bland. It really is just some beef with tomatoes. I left the rest for tomorrow's lunch. Just drinking water for the rest of the day. I think I just find that I'm not that hungry on the diet. I haven't weighed myself yet. I know that I started at 156 pounds so I guess I'll see on day seven if anything changed. Here's hoping!

A Great Evening

Today after I finished work, I went out with my co-worker for coffee.

I had such a great time!

Just some background here. My buddy I went out with - we pretty much started together. He was a co-op student. . .and well, I had no training in my jarb.

We definitely clicked. . .since we both spoke english for one, also we were hard workers.

He's an awesome friend. He's always pushing me to do more and never settle. Completely helped me passed my provincial and federal exams.

After work, we went to Starbucks and he grabbed a plain coffee and I (of course) drank a Caramel Macchiato and Lemon Poppyseed cake (yeah, I told him I just conceded to our friend and lost the battle of the bulge competition we were having lol)

We talked about work A LOT and everything else too for like 4 hours straight! He's still always there pushing me, don't settle - we can do more. We're hard workers and there's so much we can do and get done and accomplish.

I believe him.

I kept thinking, man - my buddy reminds me of someone.

I started talking about my sister and how she's always pushing me. Then it dawned on me that they have the same personality. I laughed and told him. . .no wonder we get along so well buddy - you're just like my sister. In fact, you're the same age and same strong motivation.

I also told him. . .you have the same problem with overloading yourself with too much work and responsibility. Take a breather now and then buddy.

He said he looked forward to meeting her at a party I have coming up. I told him - she'll probably really like you too :)

I also told him. . .make sure you can make it and not go to one of your 4 other jobs - HA!

This too shall pass. . .

I had lunch with the twiddles godparents yesterday and got them all caught up on the constant craptacularity that seems to be my life.

I went over being alone again and they were supportive as they always are.

I regaled them with my home issues which I never tell anyone about. . .the only reason I tell them is because their godfather lived with me and saw things firsthand so he tried to offer me solutions but I explained why I was just. . .stuck! They understood.

I talked about my plans this year and how I hoped to follow through on things that I had started. They said that I could come by and have a break with the lil' ones. They were more than happy to help out any way they could.

They are so awesome. There aren't enough words to describe how wonderful they are. I've never met people I so want to see very, very blessed in their lives. Insanely generous with their time and money and efforts. I told them flat out. . ."I don't know what I'd do without you guys in my life"

They bought me groceries too lol

They really are good stuff
