Its a new year....but is anyone learning anything?

First off an update...Chris and I had a wonderful christmas season with the family even though it was crazy busy as usual.   For those of you who only read the blog and not facebook....In December I was diagnosed with Intercranial HyperTension (basicly my brain is swollen and causing pressure).  It was a hard month but  I am doing well on the medication despite the crappy side effects and my inability to remember to take medications on time!  I am currently following up with 3 doctors each month and going for routine labs to make sure I am still okay.  Needless to say I am totally sick of seeing the doctors LOL.    This apparently will continue for at least 6 months BLAH!

In an effort to get my brain and body healthy again I have decided to go back to what works for me!  Peer pressure LOL.   I have joined Weight Watchers again and got myself a work out buddy who can work out with me at lunch or after work!  

Chris and I are enjoying life and enjoying each other and were only a little bit put back by the news we would have to wait another 6 months to a year to try getting pregnant!   We are so excited to start our own little family and the delay is a bummer but I would much rather be healthy and have a healthy baby than anything else!

We are rejoicing in all our friends baby's (congrats to the newest addition!!!! can't wait to see you!!!!!!!!!!) and we get to babysit the nephews once a week!

So the rest of this blog....My heart is sore once again!

I don't understand how someone can repeat the same action over and over expecting different results each time?   I will not go into details at all, but I am heartsick that these people have chosen to go down this path once again without thinking of the consequences of their actions and the widespread ripples it will cause to others.

So what do you do?   Do you wipe your hands clean?   Do you stand by and watch the wreck happen?   Do you join in on the insanity and hope for a different result?   Do you stand by and let the pain you know will happen to innocent bystanders just happen???  I just don't know.   To be honest I don't think I am actually looking for an answer.

I have had some pretty rough things happen in my life, some beyond my control, some as the results of my own decisions and I turned out okay.    But I had a strong group of friends and family and a faith that helped carry me at points when I was unable to even move!   It took many years of therapy, self exploration, a ton of growing up and lots of painful self inquisition!  What happens to people who don't have that structure or ability to face themselves??   Are they buried?  Does someone come in and drag them out?  Does time heal all wounds?

I think this is part of why I am so interested in psychology; the human mind/body/spirit is the most amazing thing!  I desire to know why if three people experience the exact same thing, they all deal with it differently!  Is it nature or nuture?  Do people have the innate ability to deal with only certain things in certain ways?   Does the structure around them create those mechanisms?   Is it a combination of both?   Is it none of the above.

As you can see today I am feeling very philisophical!  I hope this situation all works out but I can't help but think I am standing at the sidelines of a very slow and painful crash that will cause some irreperable damaage to some very special people.

c'est la vie?  who knows....

Join in on the insanity and hope for a different result. That's my vote.

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…

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.
