SCREW CANCER!!!!!

Thats how I feel...actually it was worse words....but my little brother might read it and get mad and charge me two dollars for swearing!

We have had cancer scares in our family, we have lost friends, family and acquaintances and I am so so so tired of it.   The word still strikes fear in my body and makes my blood run cold!   I would do just about anything to help find a cure.

When I was little when we would see a falling star we would wish that "aunty polly would get better" and quite sometime ago that wish changed to "Aunty Sharon would kick cancers ass!".      How silly is that wishing on stars and raging at cancer!

As most of you know, my sister is the perfect kid...and so she has one upped my rage with action!   GO TANYA!!!   She is going to shave her head for cancer!    Her goal is to raise 10,000 by the end of the month and then we will have a party where she will allow you all to watch her shave her head!

 Her husband has not always been totally on board with the bald wife thing, but he is 150% on board with the cause  read his personal story here.


I am so proud of my sister and I hope that I can challenge you to match or exceed Chris and my donation of $100.00.    Many of you know our situation and you know that this is a big deal for us.   We are on a very very tight budget.   This is a huge deal, and every single dollar goes to cancer research (and of course you can get a tax receipt if you are concerned about that).

If you have had cancer, know someone who has, or have experienced any measure of the loss, anger, sadness etc that this diagnoses can bring I challenge you to match our donation!  Go here to make your donation pledge (please don't pledge unless you intend on following through)

Thanks

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…
