I want to be famous and have lots of money
And have many friends who think I am funny!

I want a big house with lots of cars
I want lots of jewelry and be friends with stars

I want to be skinny and walk the runway
I want people to listen to what I say

I want the freedom that money can buy
Freedom from debt, freedom from lies

I want lots of horses and lots of land
I want to influence others & give them a hand

I want to see the world and travel afar
I want to go to big parties and end up at bars

I want to be waited on by butlers and maids
I want a big title and not be an aide

I want something precious, I want something true
I guess that is why I ended up with you!!

Health Tip

Today's Health Tip:

An invigorating walk can provide as many benefits as a slightly shorter run - and far more than doing nothing at all. For better health and to avoid weight gain, take your pick (because frankly we all love options):

  • RUN ~~ at least 20 minutes only 3 times a week
  • WALK~ at least 30 minutes 5 times a week
Enjoy your day and BREATHE!!!

Week 1 ~ DONE

Well I made it through week 1 of my new diet "lifestyle change"! Because we all need lists in our lives, here is a list of things that impressed me about myself this past week:
  • I didn't kill anyone although I did needlessly yell at about both my kids & husband for reasons that really should not be reasons!
  • It has been a whole week without my life line ~~ Dr. Pepper and well frankly I am still alive just not awake most days!
  • I have seriously cut back on sugar and don't miss it one little bit.
  • I have eaten more vegetables this week than I ate all last month (3 heads of lettuce consumed by me and me alone, thank you very much).
  • I have exercised regularly and now my body is really starting to like it, which confuses me?!? Really body you enjoy sweating it out until all your muscles ache, really?!? Because I could have sworn you were the same body that LOVED lounging on the couch~just sayin!
  • I have cooked 3 meals a day for the last week without eating out ONCE?!? I had no idea that I was related to Betty F*ing Crocker!
I would give you some elaborate breakdown of what my weight has done this week BUT...I haven't weighted myself and I don't plan to for at least 2-3 more weeks. Truthfully it is not about the weight, I just want to be able to live a normal life without medication and without huffing and puffing everywhere I go. This Big Bad Wolf doesn't want to chase piggies anymore, I would rather kiss a frog and marry my prince.....wait I already did!! Now I just want to enjoy it!!!


Day 3

So today was day 3 or 2, idk, I think i am having sugar withdraws. I have no energy and my brain is foggy to say the least but that's OK because I have had no headaches. I am keeping my fingers crossed.

I did a lot better today with my exercising. I made it another 5 minutes on "the machine" plus we went downtown to May fest this afternoon. That was a lot of walking but I really enjoyed the time with the family. I also managed to keep in my basic Pilate's ab exercises that I used to live and die by so kudos in that department.

As far as food, I didn't do so well in that department at May fest. I did manage to restraint myself a whole bunch. I only had 3 bites of polish sausage, 1 bite of cheese-on-a-stick, 2 bites of corn dog and 2 bites of funnel cake. I know too much but you should have seen what everybody else ate...just say in. Besides May fest I stayed on my meal plan of breakfast, snack, huge lunch, and only a salad for dinner so I could take my meds. I do need a pat on the back because I am drinking lots and lots more water!!

Now just have to get the kids to bed, take a shower because frankly I stink then off to bed to watch t.v....Here's to a better day tomorrow!!


I have done it, I hold the answer to many questions...

men are new answer to are retarded...the price of gas is high bc men are retarded...i am expected to give up my careeer for children bc men are retarded....i am in a bad mood why you ask bc MEN ARE RETARDED...just sayin


Dear Food

Dear Food,

I have really had it with you this time!! No more late night meet-ups or whatever you are calling it these days. I can't bear all the weight you are putting me under, please my body aches. So from now on, we can only meet when necessary. Even then you better take it easy. I am watching you!!!


Lard Ass

French Fry Deluxe Salad

I stole borrowed this recipe from the Food Network Magazine (my new fav)!


•3 cups frozen curly french fries (about 9 ounces)
•4 strips bacon
•1 tablespoon yellow mustard
•3 tablespoons chopped dill pickle, plus a splash of pickle juice from the jar
•1 1/2 tablespoons ketchup
•3 tablespoons mayonnaise
•1 1/2 tablespoons malt vinegar
•1/4 teaspoon sugar
•Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
•1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
•1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
•2 romaine hearts, torn
•1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
•Toasted sesame seeds, for topping (optional)

Bake the french fries as the label directs until crisp. Let cool.

Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook until crisp, about 4 minutes per side; transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Cool slightly, then break the bacon into pieces.

Make the dressing: Whisk the mustard, pickle, pickle juice, ketchup, mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar and 2 tablespoons water in a large bowl. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste.

Add the french fries, bacon, tomatoes, red onion, romaine and cheddar cheese to the bowl with the dressing and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Divide the salad among bowls. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired.
