I said yes.....

well hello.....excuse me if the spelling is bad, but im updating from my phone in the hotel!

Today we slept in and went down for a lovely breakfast and then got ready to go and headed from our hotl down to the waterfront. we walked to the olympic park and then back up to the pier....then we stopped for a lovely peppermint twist mocha at starbucks!

we continued on down the waterfront and decided to go to the aquarium.....we got a pic of nemo and dorie! then we went for a beer and grabbed a bus back to our hotel.

We got ready for our dinner and got a cab to take us to Cafe Campagne. we had an amazing three course dinner with lovely wine pairings and a lovely chocolate Digestif. Chris wanted to go for another walk.....so we headed down to the park, once there he looked me ddep in the eyes and told me how much he loved me....then he dropped to one knee and produced the lovely mahogany ring box....he asked me if i would make him the happiest man on earth and be his wife.

you know me.....i giggled and said yes.....he wanted to know what was so funny.....i siad the romantic view of the........FREEWAY.

yup you got it....we looked out onto the ocean and mountains.....and just below was the romantic freeway! he went to one knee again and slid the ring on my finger and asked if i would be his wife!

enogh blogging....im going to go hang out with my fiance!

Bathing Suits...a tragic story of broken hearts and personal triumph.

Hello Beauties….
Have you missed me?   Okay I have to tell you I don’t have much online dating stuff to tell you because I have been spending a LOT of time with The Foreman and he is pretty amazing!  I am a pretty lucky girl…we are moving really fast and trying to move slow….its a weird thing but you know how it is.

This post however is about me (SUPRPIIIIIIIIISE!) and where I am at now health wise.
The scale has stalled and I started to do what I always do when I get stalled….I slide backwards – don’t work out as much….eat worse….don’t track!   I had a really disappointing day two weeks ago when I realized I didn’t track on the weekend and I lost my streak of days logging on MyFitnessPal.  I was pretty sad about that.   I gave myself a hug and a kick in the bum
If you don’t know MyFitnessPal.com you should check it out.   It works on the same idea as weightwatchers or any of those programs.   If you write it down, you will be accountable for it.  You can set your own goals or pick p…

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:

HOLY S%^&T its HAPPENING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OH….Mah….GAAAWWDDDD
I am freaking out…………… I have to say I am feeling a lot of big feelings right now….as many of you know I am doing something I have never done before!   I am taking an entire month off work and will be going to europe.  I am not working, I am not on a missions trip, I am simply being an indulgent tourist!
Originally it was going to be a romantic trip for two to Rome and then meet up with family for an amazing france extravaganza followed by my first trip to the home of my ancestors.  Okay not really… I am going to London and my family is from Luton…well part of them.   I also have Dakota Sioux….and some other european and who knows really whats on the other side…german and american if I remember without checking out my ancestry tree again.
I digress, can you tell I am a bit scattered?
Anyway back to this romantic trip for 1…..This trip has been in the planning stages for almost two years.   When we first started I was dating someone who had intended (i think anyway) to c…
