Great week so far....

Having a great week so far....and I think its going to be a great year coming up!

I am feeling surprisingly upbeat about being closer to 40 than 30...

I had a great date with Chris on the weekend for my birthday and then family lunch with the immediate family at Cambie noodle. We dropped my Dad off at the airport and went over to grandma's house for a visit and Mom and Brian and I ended up staying for dinner.

I think i might be allergic to my grandma's house...or maybe the blooming plant in the corner...or possibly the chinese food she orders. This is the second time i have had a very severe allergic reaction after being at her house. Someone remind me to ask her what the plant in the corner is.

My eyes have been swollen up for 3 days now, and are very dry and even cracking at bit...the swolleness in my face thankfully as gone down and its just my eyelids now. Don't tell Grandma im allergic to her house might make her upset!

Rachel and Scott are coming to meet Chris and I and the Barons for dinner...I get to choose...and I think im going to say the REEF!!! yum yum...hopefully we can get a spot on the patio and watch the world go by on a hot hump day evening (with a nice frosty red stripe!! yummmmmy!)

This weekend we are also having a family bbq at tanya's house...I am sure you can come if you want! I hope we have lots of these back yard get togethers this summer. We are so busy i am not sure we are going to be able to get away camping, but i sure hope so!

Have a great day and thanks for all the awesome birthday wishes!

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:


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…

FabFitFun Fall 2017 - Spoilers

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.
I have reviewed a few boxes but for those who don't know, FabFitFun is a lifestyle box filled with full size (and occaional travel size) products that are focused on keeping you fabulous, fit and having fun.  I am so excited about this next box that I have to share with you the spoilers we have been given.
I have been able to choose a few items tha…
