People on the internet need to remember

Words can be dangerous. Words thrown around carelessly and cruelly can have power. How often do you read of teens or people committing suicide now days due to cyber bullying? More than I’d like to see. Just because you make a comment online doesn’t mean you aren’t accountable for it, especially if it’s directed at someone.

Remember you don’t know peoples struggles, issues or what they have on their place. One kind action could literally be the deal maker for someone struggling and trying to be positive instead of the deal breaker down a darker path.

Stephen Harper skipped out on answering opposition questions in the House of Commons more often in 2015 than in any other year he has been prime minister.

Harper has attended only 35 per cent of the daily question periods in 2015, his lowest rate for any year since 2006, a Citizen analysis found.

The trend reflects what critics say is an increasingly inaccessible prime minister, who rarely holds press conferences and who, last week, signalled that he would not participate in election leaders’ debates organized by a consortium of broadcasters.

Now he has less time for question period where, by convention, the prime minister is held to account by MPs for his government’s performance.

The non-intelligent box said… 173 this morning. I’ve lost one more pound this week! I have lost 81 pounds since August 1, 2014. I am happy and grateful! Xoxo


WIM: 03.30.2015

SW: 131.8
CW: 129.4

Judging by the fact that I couldn’t get out of bed or walk down the stairs this morning, I’d say I’ve got a good 1-2 pounds of water weight in my muscles while they protect and repair today. I’ve seen 128 a couple of times this week and have been on point 100%.

Here’s some strategies that are working for me right now:

1. Accountability: I roped eatteachwodrepeat into being an AA sponsor of sorts. We both committed to 30 days of honest MFP tracking and exchanged digits for late night “OMG help – there’s cake” texting.

2. Set mini goals: 30 days is a long time, so I’ve also created micro goals for myself. I accomplished the first one today: 7/7 days under 130. Normally, I see sub-130 and immediately sabotage.

3. Eating on a schedule: I put my meals as a “ToDo List” on my calendar and check them off as I go. This is helping me curb the grazing (for now – and when it doesn’t, I’ll find another way, then another one, then another one).

4. I stopped buying peanut butter. Harder than it sounds.

5. Tumfit helped me re-establish a healthy morning routine (coffee, stretching, then walk). Starting my day out with positive activity sets me up for a successful day every time. If I start my day out lazily, it continues all day.

6. I put my kid’s snacks in a box in the back of the pantry where I can’t see them. Amazing how effective “out of sight, out if mind” really is.

I don’t ever really want many things, so I’ve never used a reward system for myself before. However, my skin has been super dry lately and I had a hotel sample of that lotion pictured above. Used it once and fell in love with it. Ordered the biggest bottle I could find and set it on my desk where I could see it all week. I’ve been dying to push that pump, and today I get to!

My next reward will be some pens I’ve been wanting. The mini goal will be 7/7 days within acceptable calorie range in MFP. I get to buy them today, but can’t use them until the 7/7 streak is achieved. One bad day means I have to start over.

I get why Fitz dumped Mellie. He SAID why. He can't support her for president. When Fitz is faced with a dilemma, he does what good presidents, whose decisions have weight do. He thinks about it and he gets advice from qualified people. Olivia, Cyrus and sometimes even Mellie. He would NEVER hand over a list of strangers to another stranger without finding out WHY. Mellie is reckless and callous, and since he can no longer support her career, why stay together? The 'partnership' is over.

Yep. What people don’t get is, it’s NOT about mistakes. Everyone in the Scandalverse has done terrible things, and therefore everyone is a hypocrite. It’s about Mellie’s lack of accountability, something Fitz (and Olivia) actually possesses.  Fitz had to own up to his mistake, and the consequences. He begged the Senate Democrats for forgiveness (415). Mellie doesn’t know much about politics yet, but she g’on learn. She has to if she’s going to survive. She has to consider the potentialities of her actions beyond the effect on herself.  That’s a new thing for her. And yes, that was

Almost Normal!!

I got my blood work results back. I’m excited that all my numbers improved. When I was diagnosed with diabetes I had an A1C of 11+. When I began my Public Display of Self Love journey I was off my diabetes medicine, but still was in the low diabetic range. In October my A1C was down to 6, which is pre-diabetic range. Monday my blood work showed an A1C of 5.8.
5.7 and lower is considered normal, and not pre-diabetic.
I am so close. I am grateful to be non-diabetic and looking forward to seeing my results in 6 more months. Yay, for turning around a medical condition!!! Xoxo

Choose to forgive yourself.
Choose to forgive others.
Choose to see your value.
Choose to show the world you’re not a victim.
Choose to make us proud.

My food prep for the week is SPOT on!!!

The girls and I all decided to do a ‘hijacked’ version of the 21 day challenge…

One gal has done the first round and lost 12 lbs…

She helped us understand the portion amounts, hooked us up with Pinterest pages with recipes, tracking options & all sorts of items to position us for success…

We have the schedule of workouts and will either be doing them together at each other’s homes or doing our own exercise videos & running/cardio to mix it up…

My measurements have been taken (UGH!) & my daily caloric intake for the next 3 weeks has been calculated…

Now it’s time to KICK SOME ASS!!!
