Here's the reality according to André:

In laptops like this you get what you pay for. The price of entry on this one is cheap; and that's what you'll see in the product.

If you buy a $500 laptop now you'll be in the need of another $500 PC in two years. If you spend $900 or $1000 now you'll have something that will last you much longer then 2 years.

Netbooks do two things, internet and email. It can't be a primary machine, it's the scooter of laptops. On a scooter you're going to have problems doing grocery shopping, running people around, you're going to get wet when it rains and you can't get on the freeway, or frankly go long distances on it. It's a big compromise because even to just get from point a to b you don't have the same experience as a car.

This machine is not a powerful machine, 1.4GHz processor? Those were current 5 years ago. Running the latest OS on it is... questionable, but probably better then Vista.

Personally I would NOT buy this machine.

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 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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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…
