Losing A Friend Today –


I have to admit that this may be ALL of my fault – admitting it does make the pain a tad bit more bearable…..

I really thought that this thing would be good to me and stay my BEST FRIEND… but things have changed between us and I do not know what to do!! I was in LOVE with ” MR. SCALE” …. he was the PERFECT boyfriend.. told me and showed me all the things I wanted….

Eventually he started changing on me….  So either I have to get rid of HIM or change a few of MY own habits…….

We have been through this battle before and this fight isn’t as bad as they used to be, so maybe there is HOPE..

Ugghh – Back To The GYM Tonight!


1_gymEmpty

I so love ME and my own  journey in this weight loss process! I have been FIGHTING to get my last 25 off of me for a few months now. I got comfy with my size 6 and 8 clothes and now I had to buy a size 10 dress and it SCARED ME INTO DOING RIGHT!!!! LOL

Ugghhhhh….swear, it is like I think that the more that I assumed that all is well, the lazier that it made me…..

Before, I had a method of going to the gym 4 days a week and it was not a fight at all…now – making myself try to turn into a GYM RAT has me a tad bit nervous.

Why is it that women are SO MUCH MORE VOCAL about their weight and appearance than men? Trust me, I do know a great deal of men who primp and press MORE than me and sadly to say BETTER than me –

However, unless they are into same-sex relationships….. men do not make a big fuss about it like us…

I guess that this the calm before the storm…before I get my butt back into the gym…… I will be going in another hour and try to get my spunk and regime back together….

This photo is from 2 weeks ago & I desperately need to shed 25 pounds… you dont see what I know is there! LOL

I Am Currenting Loving New York Legislation


MAYORBLOOMBERG

If New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg gets his way, stores won’t be able to publicly display tobacco products and will have to keep cigarettes under the counter or behind curtains.

The legislation announced today is the latest public-health crackdown by the mayor, whose ban on super-sized sugary soft drinks was shot down by a judge last week.

The proposed law would “prohibit display of tobacco products” in most retail shops,. “Such displays suggest smoking is a normal activity and invite young people to experiment with tobacco.” It would be the first of its kind in the nation.

A second law would impose new rules to make it harder to sell smuggled cigarettes.

These laws would protect New Yorkers, especially young and impressionable New Yorkers. The New York Association of Convenience Stores, which has 1,600 members, called the proposed ban on displays “absurd” but I totally agree with Mayor Michael Bloomberg seriously.

He said he hoped the City Council would reject the bill after it’s introduced later this week. If it passes, the National Association of Tobacco Outlets predicts it will be overturned by the courts.

Sara Palin mocked Mayor Bloomberg via banning certain sized soft drinks….but she just wants to stay relevant…

YES!!! There are a great deal of people who DISAGREE with the government being able to get involved like this…. A great deal of them are indeed talking about a basic right under the Constitution.  They also feel that if you do this with cigarettes and tobacco products, what else is going to have to be out of view? Wine and spirits? It’s a very slippery slope. Well I look at it like this, yes the government is saying or at least trying to wean people from smoking – drinking and a hosts of other things and I think that it is a good idea.

If I was an insurance company and I would raise the premiums on people that smoke etc….so then what? Are you going to KEEP your medical insurance or drop it because you do not agree? You want to smoke and if you get sick..get lung diseases / cancer now you want the insurance carrier to pay for TONS of testing and expensive treatments because of a PERSONAL BAD HABIT that you chose to do that is not good for your health!!!!

New York City officials, though, said the point of the display ban isn’t to prevent kids from buying cigarettes, which is already illegal; the idea is that lowering exposure to the products reduces the chances a young person will try smoking in the first place.

Mayor Bloomberg has made public-health campaigns a hallmark of his administration and boasted that life expectancy in the city is up three years since 2001. He has also crusaded against salt in restaurant foods and junk food in vending machines and required calorie counts on fast-food menus.

A new policy sharply limiting the sale of 16-ounce sugary drinks was supposed to take effect last week, but a judge put a stop to it, ruling it was arbitrary and capricious.

Parenting

My Baby’s Tastebuds….


I have to admit that some days his after school snacks are a break between healthy and unhealthy…… I hate to say unhealthy because he does have a variety of all of the food groups….. We are ALWAYS RIPPING AND RUNNING with his activities and cooking at home is ummmm….. like a 2 day a weekk thing! This boy has something to do EVERYDAY of the week literally…..

I do know that we are cutting out the bread…. well at least he can have bread twice a week but that is it…. He eats tons of fruit…. tons of Gatorade… tons of SPECIAL K Products and even a great deal of protein bars….. However, Wish I had the money to just build a chain of gyms for kids….I know that I would make a killing because at least 85 percent of kids in AMERICA is overweight – INCLUDING MINE!

Crazy thing is that he is in shape like he weighed like a skinny kid….

From martial arts…. he is alright… From soccer..he is alright… From baseball…he is alright… From basketball…he is alright..

I should have went ahead and signed him up for swimming – I know that would have SERIOUSLY helped us both shed some pounds….

Just even THINKING about putting this boy in another activity gives me a panic attack! LOL – It is just plumb exhausting and in a minute… His part time nanny will become his mother because I am tired!

It isnt too late but who wants to pay $300.00 for yet ANOTHER ACTIVITY! I already have to buy another instrument for this kid….. I tell him that he costs too much and needs to get a job… His reply is mom I did ask you to work but you said that I am too youn! UGGHH….. ” HUSH IT BOY ”
