Happy Sunday folks.  It was a relatively nice weekend.  Well my child was a handful during the day on Saturday, but went to a sleep-over and we all got a break from each other.

Tomorrow I am starting a 30 Day Cleanse.   IsaGenix

Here are my goals.

1.   lost 15 pounds. (brings me to 185)
2.   follow the program to a T
3.   share the program with as many people as I can.

Not only is this program an amazing detoxing and fat-burning system, but the online support is amazing.  I belong to several online support groups on FB and they are there for any questions I might have and support me thru this part of my journey.

On top of that, the earning potential is amazing!  I just wish I could get my team started.  Haven't found the right people yet!  ARG!

Well, lead my example I guess..:)

However, the family has decided to try this for supper tonight...a pizza from pizza dog stuffed arteries are hardening while I type!  But everything in moderation, and I will not be eating like that in these next 30 days, so it's all good!

I just learned today that I can do an "all-shake day" on this program.  So instead of the one 400-600 calories meal, I will have 2 shakes, 4 shakes in total.  I have decided that I will do this on my hot yoga day (Tuesday), as opposed to doing a deep cleanse on that day.  Then I will do the deep cleanse on Wednesday & Thursday and that works out just great for me.  Wednesday is ariel yoga and Thursday day is reformer chair pilates.  I have done deep cleanses for both those classes with no issues.

The Walking Dead is on tonight.  I LOVE THIS SHOW!  I have to also say that I love my DVR.  I would miss all my shows if not for that.  Funny thing is, the whole reason I got the machine was to record The Biggest Loser....turns out the new season wont start airing til JANUARY 2013!  But it's all good because I am watching all of the Lost Girl episodes before the new season starts.  We also record Grimm, Survivor and tons of kids shows.  Beauty!

Anywho, got chores to finish.  See you on the flip side!

TGIF I sit...time counting down my time.  It was a long week.  My work-place was involved in a table discussion to try to make the office function better.  It was just one step in the process but a very emotional one.  I hope it works.

My industriousness of last weekend on the quest to earn some money to buy a LuLu Lemon sweater thingie kinda backfired on me.  I did sell maybe 1 dozen of them and make a bit of money, but I ate more than I sold, and well...I gained weight.  All that white flour and sugar and butter...yup...right to my gut.  My pants are all too tight and my belly is bloated.

The key for success for me is to plan. I guess that is everyone's key really. Some people seem to be ok without it, but that is not me.

Ok..plan my day...I have that done already actually.  I have a great nutrional program already, one that allows me to not even think about what I am eating, just follow the plan.

(there goes my 5 minute timer!)

IsaGenix is amazing.  But my willpower when it comes to sweets is not so much.  I HAVE to be regimented in order to succeed.  I am also determined to reach my scale goal SOON!  I just keep ticking like a Timex watch!

I will leave you with a pic I took of myself recently!

Well trying again to write a blog

I have a strong desire to write, yet I am afraid to start.  What if it is no good anyway?  Why bother? Well that's my inner brat talking to me, I don't know her name, but FlyLady let me know of her existence!

So I decided I was just a timer for 5 minutes...just 5 minutes...and blog.  So, I just turned the timer on and have my thinking cap on.

And about blogs....I mean....lots of people spend time writing and honing their writing, and I always thought that blogging was sorta off the cuff and on the spot.  I think I will Google blog and see what I get...brb...

 So I guess the term blog covers a wide variety of types.  Mine is a type of  online diary, so very informal.  Well that works for me for now. 

Been struggling with lots of things lately, losing weight, eating, work.  I feel like I am trying to swim up a water-fall.  What I need to do is turn around and go with the flow, not against.  Working thru it may help.  I may reach an epiphany while I am here.  Here's hoping.

I'm been trying to make a little but of extra money by selling baked goods...haven't really hit on the best one yet, but I have only tried tea buns and shortbread cookies.  Oh and home-made bread too. The ad on FB ( has only been up for a few hours.  I'm trying to find something that I can make cheaply, and quickly.  It doesn't make too much sense to spend hours and tons of time on something you really can't sell for a  Maybe fudge?

Well there goes my timer.  If anyone reads this and has a suggestion of baking that you would buy, just to give me an idea of what people like and want, that would be so great if you would leave me a comment!

Thanks for reading.
