Olympics 2010

I have to say at first i was excited...but not EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! about the olympics!

I have been working on the team doing the opening and closing and no dont ask me what I am doing I will just tell you "I was making sandwiches!!!'

Tonight we had a big rehersal and we invited people we love to come see it! It was amazing as usual! Tonight I got to stand in as a flag bearer for one of the countries and I have to say I was super nervous and really really excited! Walking around that stage was one of the coolest things I have done so far and only ramped up my excitement!

Does Vanoc leave the best legacy, was the money spent the best way it could be??? You know what I dont know! But what I do know is that I have more respect for people like Covenant House who worked with Vanoc and got their slice of the pie and got 34 new beds for homeless youth than those who stand at the skytrain and yell at the "corporate sell outs" who volunteer their time for the olympics!

Its coming and you can't stop it...why not get excited and join the rest of the world in the celebration. Lets celebrate that for a few weeks every couple of years the world stops and rejoices together for a short period of time!

I was super disappointed tonight to hear of people posting photos of the opening rehersal! You konw what that means right. It means good people who take their cell phones to the rehersal so they dont take the bus home alone at night without a phone will have their phones confiscated at the next time they try to go through a security gate.

Thanks for ruining for the rest of us you ass!!

Thousands of people have been working hard to keep this an awesome and wonderful secret from the rest of the world for months and months! You were invited by someone who has been keeping the secret because we thought you would be excited and we could trust you!

SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3 1/2 days to go people!!! enjoy the games and try and do something fun! Watch the ceremonies on tv if you dont have tickets, it will be AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris and I are also going to check out a medal ceremony with Paul Brandt and Our Lady Peace!!! SWEET!!!!

Can't wait to see the torch in my neighborhood on the 11th. Get in the spirit Vancouver, its here whether you like it or not!

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…

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…
