did you all see my sister the famous protestor?



Here she is at the H&M nurse in...she wanted to go check it out, didnt feel the need to force her child to feed like some...but wanted to see what was up and show her support for another friend who was told cover up on a westjet flight.

you can see her blog here at www.crackedhelmet.ca and read the story.

My fave part of the story (after tanya told me about all he mothers hamming it up for the cameras) was the baby who kept asking for a BA BA and the mother would say thats right hun Bad store...Bad store....and looking for the cameras. I dont know about you....but in my world...and most everyone i know BA BA means Bottle! Lets just be real about this ladies.

Tanya and i talked about this before she left, there was actually a woman in our cafeteria who was talking (loudly enough) about how she though breast feeding in public was obscene and these mothers should just cover up. Which i thought was pretty funny coming from a very large lady who wears very small clothes on a regular basis. She doesnt want to see the side of a boob but we are daily graced by the presence of her exposed skin?

I think that most mothers who are breastfeeding in public have the smarts to be modest enough about it. Are you going to catch the occasional glimpse of boob? yes you are. Are you going to see the occasional woman who pulls out her entire boob and slaps it on the table? yup you are....but i have to say i would rather catch an occasional glimpse of boob than a big fat, slobby, hairy, man boobed chest of a man walking around...and well all of these are legal so suck it up!

Do you like to eat your sandwich under a blanket in the middle of summer? NO??? what really? neither does my nephew! its hot...and stuffy....and really i dont want something covering my face while i eat. There was another woman in toronto who was scolded in a LeSenza store also and she said "you get to eat your big mac in the store and no one complains....well so does my son!" i thought that was pretty clever.

Well i am quite sure we are never all going to agree, but i for one will not be shunned to a back room, or try to make my child wait to feed. I will cover up as much as i can, however i will not suffucate my child under a blanket or push them to starvation just to please someone who has a stick up their butt. You have the legal right to be ignorant...and i have the legal right to feed my child! lets just agree to disagree and stay out of each others faces!

I really love this new topic of boob blogging. I am preparing myself for our first Sunday with Paige, by reading this stuff and envisioning myself, untucking Paige from her carseat, bringing her up to my chest, and plopping my boob into her suckling little mouth (Denise style ie no lifting of the shirt, a pulling down of the collar of the shirt). Over and over and over again I tell myself that church HAS to be a place to nurse without a mother's room, GOD INVENTED BOOBS AND MILK. Thank you Tara for blogging some more about this. I really ask for your prayers for me to be able not only to nurse exclusivly but also without shame.

Oh boy I love the way you worded this blog!!I agree with every single truth telling sentence...YOU ROCK! I have been told to cover up with evil glares but never by someone in a store, how embarassing!!I would definetly be upset about that...

Review - Usana Reset

Its been a while since i wrote here, but I thought this would be the best place to host my review.

What is the Usana Reset?  according to their website:

Reset is a 5 day Jumpstart that is a nutritionally balanced, low-calorie system to help you kick carbohydrate cravings and lose the first few pounds and find the motivation to keep working toward your total weigh-loss goal.   Reset helps people jumpstart healthy eating habits and begin to make a clean break from unhealthy, high-glycemic foods.

Reset is meant to be followed up by a 2 month program that tapers off of their food product and into a Low GI diet.   
This review is specifically about the 5 day reset.  Here is how the week shapes up:
You can buy the products online but they recommend you buy the actual reset package that includes a DVD and other extra's.

I have a close contact who sells Usana and they just bought me the items I needed to complete the days.

Lets take a look at the different things my week was made up of:







If…

Permanent or Removable.....that is the question!

So, I have had a few days to reflect on this being 39 thing, and I think I am pretty excited! I am about to enter a totally new phase of my life and this is scary and crazy and wonderful.

I think it is apropos that my last year of my 30’s will be met with much great fanfare and celebration all year long. It is after all the 10th anniversary of the Good Noise Vancouver Gospel Choir and as such we have some AMAZING concerts and events happening this year!

I have decided that this year will be much like the one that ushered in my 30’s with lots of self reflection, being kind to myself and treating myself they way I should be treated! Thankfully this time I will be doing it with someone I love very deeply by my side!

One of the things I have been thinking about it the desire to let go but not forget the lessons I have learned! Life has not always been kind to me; I have had some pretty shitty stuff happen in my life so far. Please don’t take this as any form of Woe is me…just a fact. Life…

Its been awhile dear readers but I am back in the land of the english speakers (i have been for almost a month sorry!!!!)
I was trying to get some time in with the handsome man in my life, get my house in order and get back on track with work after a month away, so of course i got SICK!!  YAY.    I will have lots of pictures and some stories to share with you all who are not on my facebook.  
But first I want to tell you about the one and only subscription box I keep around (even when money is tight).  This is my gift to me as an incentive to keep working hard on being a bigger, badder, sexier, stronger - more healthy version of myself.
