juice tuesday: starving

“Bigger snacks means bigger slacks!”

Well, the plan for today was to ONLY juice...I did pretty well. I did eat 2 bananas, egg whites, grapes, green beans, and coffee (but I can never give that up again!) I have to admit I was starving all day which I feel ashamed to even say considering I had more than so many people get/drink in a day. I am VERY hopeful about my weigh in tomorrow though! So if I am pleased with my weight tomorrow I think that will inspire me to keep up with the juicing!


Alright Dannie- here are the things I want to do in ICELAND!

Try Skyr- a favorite of Icelanders
Glacier Tour

Whale Watching 

See puffin and EAT PUFFIN!

The Northern Lights Inn

O I think Dog Sledding is a must!

See the wondrous Northern Lights 

looks scary but it also looks awesome- Fissure Snorkeling 

I would like to see this church-Hallgrimskirkja 

I would like to see an Icelandic Turf House
Watch Glima - Icelandic Wrestling...maybe

Gulfoss Waterfall

I just want to see some Icelandic sheep
Ride Icelandic Horses

The Blue Lagoon Of course!

Weigh in Wednesdays: Dropped a jean size!

“I feel about airplanes the way I feel about diets.
 It seems to me that they are wonderful things
 for other people to go on.” -Jean Kerr

Well I have not actually seen a difference on the scale BUT one month ago I was wearing a size 14 and they we're getting so big my sister said that I looked a little lesbo with my baggy jeans and way too big tee shirts-so I went to Old Navy and grabbed a few 12s but also snagged the 14s in the same styles just in case (the idea of fitting into a 12 seemed so far fetched-it was exactly one year ago that I had to buy a size 16!!!!!) each pair I tried on wafted right on so I assumed I had been trying on the pile from the 14s -NOPE I fit in the 12s and now the pair I bought is getting loose!!!! What a wonderful feeling! However I have hardly any clothes and I don't want to spend a lot of money because I've lost so much weight and I see no end in sight until I reach my goal! But like I always say this is a SPECTACULAR problem to have!

juice tuesday: only juice

My goal today was to ONLY drink juice and not eat any solids...I failed. It would be easier if I was not in the house all day and didn't have to feed my daughter. I used to be so busy at work I could and would easily go all day without eating mainly because I didn't want to waste the time! But being at home and making meals and snacks for my daughter who takes 2 bites and is finished..it was difficult, I was hungry and getting a headache but I tried to mostly just eat fruits and vegitables. I wanted to go JUST ONE DAY as that is really what you are supposed to do when you're juicing but since I am still nursing I just gotta eat something otherwise it's too exhausting BUT I thought I could at least go one day! I will attempt it again next Tuesday!

Valentine's Day 2012

I asked my sister what she was doing for Valentine's Day...she replied "Same thing I do every year, except some years I get lucky and have dinner with my parents." --Hilarious.

Today Z and I had a lady date with my sister Helena downtown, since my husband was away on business, it was a very nice afternoon and then we were surprised at home with two deliveries (I LOVE DELIVERIES!) -heart shaped pizza and flowers from my husband! I loved that the flowers were NOT red, and that they were not just roses and they were delivered with a vase but I got to arrange them, not a big deal but it's nice to be able to put something together on Valentine's Day.

Z's V Day gifts

Sweet Quotes for Valentine's Day

If you need any ideas for your Valentines cards.....except for the last one...I wouldn't put that in a Valentine's card-unless you want to end the relationship.

      "For it was not into my ear you whispered but into my heart, it was not my lips you kissed but my soul."

                                   "A hundred hearts would be too few to carry all my love for you"

                       "When your in love you can't sleep because reality is better than your dreams."

                                                    "All I know is that I am lost without you."

                             "You may hold my hand for a while, but you hold my heart forever."

                                     "Love one another and you will be happy. It's as simple and as difficult as that."

                                                    "Love is an act of endless forgiveness."

                                                        "Loving you was my favorite mistake."

          "If I had to chose between loving you and breathing, I would use my last breath to say I love you."

"If I could reach up and hold a star for every time you made me smile, the entire evening sky would be in the palm of my hand."

        "I don't understand why cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day. When I think of romance, the  last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon."

                             "Where there's smoke there's fire, where there's you, there's desire."

                    "It hurts to breathe because every breath I take proves I can't live without you."

                      "A life with love will have some thorns but a life without love will have no roses."

                        "Whenever you feel a warm breeze brush against you, that's the kiss I blew you."

                              "We are the perfect couple, we're just not in the perfect situation."

                       "If a kiss could say just how I love you-my lips would be on yours forever."

"A kiss is just a kiss til you find the one you love. A hug is just a hug til you find the one you're always thinkin of. A dream is just a dream til it comes true. Love was just a word til I heard it from you."

                                      "Kissing you is like chocolate cake...I can never get enough."

                                        "Never let a fool kiss you, and never let a kiss fool you."

                                            "I wasn't kissing her, I was whispering in her mouth."
