My Grass Will Always Be Greener!

I though long and hard about this all day today. I have accepted that I am out 350$. That I am ok with. I would even be “ok” if I stayed the same weight I am now. BUT, I know I can accomplish more. I know I can do this on my own. I am going to do this.

I’ve given myself a goal of loosing whatever weigth I want by the end of May. That gives me two months to really work at it and get it done. I have been wanting to loose weight for years now and I am going to do it. I don’t care if I have no life and just go to the gym. I may sound a little crazy right now, but I really need to put myself first for once. Tonight, I am going to hit the gym, workout as much as I feel necessary and go home and take a hot bath and relax.

I really think that it’s all just mind over matter. I’ve had a week now without sugar or junk food. I feel great. And I am usually not a very positive person but now I feel as though I need to have a positive outlook on everything. If I can do this in two months, I will be living proof that literally anybody can do it, if they really wanted to!

Frustrated!!

When we first joined UWeight Loss, we paid our starter fee and a maintenance fee. This starter fee included our protein powder, vitamins, detox pills, pedometer, journals and hundreds of recipes. We go and weight in 3 times a week or as much as we can. We finished our detox week last night, but I’ve been calling it my crap free week at home (since I need to really kick my addiction to sugar) Anyways, we went to go weight in last night and to pick up our vitamins for this week and … there’s a hitch! We were told that the vitamins were included in the 350$ starter kit. Since that’s a great deal of money we made sure and asked them if it was included. WELL, we go there today and they tell us that no they were only free for the first week and we have to pay an additional $50 each a week for them!! That’s 100$ a week! . I was in such an outrage that I was almost crying in the room with the lady. I asked her if we had to take the vitamins and if we could do it without them and she said we have to take them to be apart of the program.

So the moral of the story, never join a weight loss place. EVER! There are not there to really help you, they just want your money! So since our Starter fee of 350$ each is non-refundable, we can only get 700$ back if we want to quit. Kyle might stay with the program since he is overweight, but I am not. I didn’t really want to join in the first place, I just really wanted to support him and his decision. He feels terrible of course since I’ve been crying all night. But I guess you learn from your mistakes and move on. We’re still going to follow most of the recipes and work out more to make up for the vitamins I guess? This is all so confusing to me. I hate it.

I really hate it.

Sunday Updates :)

Hello again my lovely friends!

Sorry I didn’t post yesterday. I was working all day at Fabutan and boy did I get a work out. In the morning I went to go catch my 8:30 bus to be at work for 9 and as I was sitting there, I just happened to look at the other bus stop that was 20 feet away from me and there I saw my bus… drive right past me.. I was freaking out!! I had to be at work at 9 and since we always work alone, I was the one who had to open the salon. Anyways, I ended up calling Kyle in a mad rage, since he was the one who told me to sit at the wrong stop. He told me he would call his mom and see if we could get her car since our beater is in the shop.. well as this was all going on I decided I was going to walk (I am very stuborn) I was not going to wait, but walk the entire way. (It’s like a few miles..lol) and by the time they came and found me walking I was 3/4 the way there.. I am a very fast walked when I’m in a pissy mood. lol But it all worked out, I made it with a minute to spare. πŸ™‚ I’m a little crazy I know.

Anywhoo.. On a good note, I received an award today!! It’s the Sisterhood Award thanks to my good friend Rudy and her GREAT blog, Completely Delicious Life. So I want to pass this award along to 3 of my favorite blogs, which I read daily of course!! πŸ˜‰

As promised, this is before we all went to dinner for my friend’s birthday. This is actually the first photo I have taken of myself in a long time.

Major Temptation Straight Ahead!

Oh Crap..OH CRAP… HOLY CRAP!!!

I totally forgot about my plans for tonight. It’s Kyle’s best friends birthday and the lucky guy is turning 26 (?) I’m horrid, I know. I can never remember how old people are. I have so many friends that are all different ages so it’s like impossible to remember them all.. but holy crap.

We are all supposed to meet at Dylan O’Conner’s where the limo is to get us. Go to DW’s house and pick him and his wife up and then… go out for dinner. For those who have been following my blog lately or even some just finding me now (HELLO!!) I am following a diet from UWeight Loss. This is my first week and we are in detox mode. I have a strict schedule to follow, along with kyle.. and now we have a birthday dinner, and we’re not allowed alcohol! What is a girl to do!!

Would it be right to say I’m not hungry or don’t want to drink?

They are all quite heavy drinkers!! Besides I have to work tomorrow morning at 9 at Fabutan! I would never bail on someones birthday but I know I will be hungry and seeing every temptation known to man kinds.. Will I stick it out?? Will I keep eating the way I have.. or will I fail??

AAAHHHH?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? I hate times like there where you have to sacrifice something your doing for the enjoyment of others. We will see… on a good note, I will FOR SURE be taking a “before” picture of myself tonight. One with my bathing suit for Leah at Oh She Glows since I entered in her Oh She Glows “Bikini Boot Camp”. Also, a picture of me so all you lovely people can really see what I look like..:)

Hope you all have a great afternoon, I’m headed for my weigh-in. Hopefully I lost another pound or so.. *wish me luck* and talk to you tonight…. lata gatas!

Celebrity Inspirations

Hello again,

I know everyone secretly is addicted to celebrities. It’s a hard thing to admit for some but not for me, I am totally addicted to celebrities. You would not believe the books and books I have on cut-outs of magazines. I always flip through them when I wanna go shopping to “get me in the mood” (I hate malls so it’s always a challenge for me)

Anywhoo, I went to my friend Rian’s wonderful site called The Skinny Website to check out her daily photos and to my surprise, it was all some of my favorite celebs!!

Here is Jessica Stroup from 90210. When I first started to watch the show I really didn’t approve of her TINY figure, but it has seemed like she has gained a bunch of the weight back and now looks young and healthy!

Jessica

Here is another 90210 babe, Shenea Grimes. She’s a fellow Canadian (wooppee!) but from everything I have read about her, she seems to have a bit of an attitude, the look on her face doesn’t really “work for her” either! lol

Grimes

And last but certainly not least is Vanessa Hudgens who I admire so much for her sense of fashion. (but not for her nudy photos = trashy) I know many people aren’t a fan but I really do like her for some reason. I think she’s as cute as a button! πŸ™‚

Hudgens

So yes here is my inspiration for the day. I’m sure I will never be as tiny as they are but I can at least try to look my best πŸ™‚

Late Night Post!

Good Evening!

I just got off work at the tanning salon! I am absolutely exhausted. Kyle made me tandori chicken with sweet potatoes. I’ll post the recipe hopefully some time tomorrow… Also, me and Kyle have to be wearing pedometers to measure the amount we walk in an average day. So far it’s been around 7-8 thousand steps, but in my last 4 hour shift at Fabutan, I walked 7,500 alone!! I can’t imagine how many I will walk by tomorrow afternoon at my weight in!.

Well it has been a long night, and I cannot wait to sit down, light up some incense and read some of my book (Watchmen graphic novel..I’m a BIG nerd) and cuddle up in bed. I hope you all have a great evening and I will be talking with you tomorrow!

*Sweet Dreams*

Lonely DietGirl’s Rating:

*Kyle was the one who ate this and he seemed to really anjoy it. He is usually a picky eater but this seemed to do the trick. I will do my own taste test next week when I am allowed to have a snack :)*

Turkey Feta Burgers

6 1/2 oz Lean Ground Turkey
1/2 tbsp Bread Crumbs
1/2 tbsp Chopped Onions
1/2 tbsp Egg Whites
1/4 clove Garlic
1 tsp Feta Cheese

Directions: In a large bowl, mix ground turkey, bread crumbs, onion, egg whites, feta cheese and garlic. Form a patty. Cook the burger in a medium skillet over medium heat, flipping approximately every 15 minutes until it’s cooked internally. Serve with your favorite fruit

Lonely DietGirl’s Rating? 4/5

Comment: I really liked the taste of a turkey burger vs a beef burger, the garlic and onion really added some zing to the flavor!!

*on a side note, I haven’t had sugar since Sunday!!! I have never went this long without junk food of some sort.. but I am strictly sticking to this diet. The apple was amazing!! I have never enjoyed an apple as much as I did today, absolutely scrumptious!*
