January 2013

Here we are at the beginning of the new year!

No bullshit about how I am going to do this or that, I just dissapoint when I do that!

This year Chris and I are looking forward to continue to try for a family, and just generally enjoying our life if that does not happen for us.   We hope to spend lots of quality time with friends and family and we pray that this year will find us in good paying, fulfilling jobs!

Speaking of jobs, I am still looking and I hope that if you hear anything you will let me know.   I also ask that you pray for Chris and I while we struggle through this time.   My last severance cheque is on friday and I have two interviews this week.   I have a handful of outstanding applications out as well.   We are trying not to be worried.   We have saved as much as we could and hope that will carry us through.  

I can apply for EI on Friday, but that will mean 2 weeks waiting period and that waiting for the first cheque to come.   The cheque will not be anything close to what I was making before and we are in a lease.

We are very very optimistic about this new year and we hope that you are too!   Our sincere prayer is that you find true joy, real love, complete health, the wealth you need and the wisdom to see it all.

I am going to try and do the 365 photo challenge this year and then do a year book with those photos.  Here is my first photo!  

I chose this photo as my first one because this is one of the best places in the world.   We love to sit out on our patio and enjoy the view while we hang out together.   We spent a number of lovely nights out there eating amazing food in the summer and Chris has taken to taking photos off the balcony most nights.

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…

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…
