I just need to say this....

This week I have been confronted by many things that have made me stop and really work my tinkboxer! (thats brain for you non campers...)

I truly believe in God and his love for me....I believe that he puts people, situations, words...whatever in my line of sight as a way of speaking to me. You can call it Kismit, Fate, The Universe, Buddha, Mohammed, Ganesh, The Stars whatever you like but I call it God. I still love you even if you call it horseshit!

I wanted to share some of the things that have touched me latlely.

1. I am an avid reader of Badmommymoments.com and she has been talking about a site called Unbreakable

I have been so moved by the courage of these people to face their fears and shame and say NO...SHAME IS FOR THE ATTACKER! It reminds me of the strength of the human spirit

2. Why I hate Religion....I have long felt alone and ashamed of my disgust for organized religion which I felt was is in direct contradiction to my love of God. Its nice to know I am not alone. I truly believe that God would be so disappointed to see what his "church" has become. The wars fought in his name, the hurts perpatrated in the name of religion and his "church" spending their money on themselves instead of the community.

Didn't God say that the greatest commandment was love and that we should love our neighbor...I think he even said despite their "sin" :) Jesus would have lived on the downtown eastside....just saying!

3. I want to be an instrument of compassion, do you? This is the first time that i have heard this prayer, but it is the words of my heart!

4. One of the hardest things for me to remember is to take life one day at a time especially when things get tough.

Have I hurt your brain today?? I hope not...I just found these things so encouraging I wanted to share them in case they spoke to you too!

I just want to be the best me that I can be....so Today I am going to try that out!

Thanks,

T

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 MyFitnessPal.com 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:







If…

HOLY S%^&T its HAPPENING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OH….Mah….GAAAWWDDDD
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…
