Belly laughs

During my journey of self discovery I Have learned so much. Things that I like (comedy shows) and things I don't like (clubs). I am a girl that loves to laugh, laughing is like crying though, in the sense that the uglier the face the better the emotion.

When I laugh really hard my face...well I can imagine it doesn't look pleasant. It feels a lot like my ugly cry face to be honest. Those are the gut wrenching belly laughs that are marvelous. Last night, thanks to Tamara and her lack of coffee experience I was rolling. Mainly bc her laugh is so contagious that it made the already funny become beyond hilarious. She probably thinks I am the meanest person in the entire world with how much I was picking on her but hey, I never had a younger sibling...I'm just trying to catch up! Lol

If you haven't seen the video I posted on my Facebook you should take a look at it. That video still has my eye a little sore from laughing so much! The comedy show we attended last night was great! The jokes were funny and the improv was hilarious! I loved it! Although I am floored that grown men have not seen you've got mail...? Really?! True story.

Watching the Titanic scene or the "One Liners" was awesome. There is really nothing more entertaining that improv to me. I loved it when I was in school. It is an excuse to adults to play awesome is that? If you have ever dreamed of being an actor when you were younger you can relate to me love to improv.

I think those boys really should ask my opinion on a few things to do though, people underestimate my comic abilities. The night was a success though. I got to drink Amazing coffee (sit n talks nutty professor=pure bliss) kick a 5'12, 400 lb bald man around ( thanks Adrian!) and hang out with my sister, which you all know I love that.

Sibling bonds as you age is a blog for a different day. Hope all your weekends were just as entertaining! I'm off to go haul dirt into mine and Hayden's imaginary space ship. Yes, actual dirt.

Laters baby!

Isn't it Ironic...don't ya think?

What started off as my "Pamper Mommy" day ended on a bit of a spur note. Let me start from the beginning.

Hayden woke me up at the usual time, between 4:30-5:00 am. We lounged for a minute then I threw my hair up, put on some yoga pants and a tshirt, and off to daycare we went. After dropping him off I stopped at a car wash to rinse off my black stallion. Those car washes never quite get everything but it at least got all the dirt and left over pollen off.

My first appointment was at the dentist where I had my teeth bleached. I never really understood this process but I can assure you I probably won't do it again. The lady put vasaline around my mouth to help it stay "limber" and then I had this contraption put in my mouth that reminded me of Patrick Starfish. An insane amount of gauze and cotton rolls were then placed into my mouth to protect all the tissue from getting burnt. A gel was applied to my gums to further protect them. Then the real fun began. The bleach was placed on my teeth and then I was moved to a sitting position of 15 so that the special light could work the bleach. This process was repeated 3 times after this. Dental chairs are not comfortable by any means. My head still hurts. After you get your teeth whitened the twinging pain you have in your teeth...almost as bad as child birth. Seriously.

Second stop was to lunch with some former coworkers. It was a pleasant experience. Some people will never change, that was proven. The things that I once did to people really do bother me now. It can be pretty hurtful to hear things. I put on a really great game face but I'll admit it here on my blog: I don't know whether to let my feelings get hurt or feel flattered that people remember Facebook posts I made months ago and still make fun of them. There is something you have to understand about my former coworkers, they love to laugh...sometimes at other peoples expense. I am aware that I still am part of the laughter...and like I said sometimes I don't know whether or not to be offended or flattered. I can tell you that I am glad that now they are just friends and not coworkers. That environment is something I am so glad I am not around all the time. A girl gets sensitive occasionally.

Next stop, hair! This was my favorite stop of the day. The lady that do my hair was amazing! If you need a hair cut, decent priced, great conversation, then go to Sam at Alter Image Salon in Cabot. She is remarkable! I showed her a picture and for the first time a hair stylist actually explain to me why my hair won't look this way or behave that way and how I can best fake it. I was floored by that! This was information I knew about my hair over the years but no stylist has ever said it! I loved her honesty and by her telling me and telling me what I can do to combat it has helped me with styling! I love it, I will be returning when it comes time for a trim.

Next, I went to Walmart...nothing to eventful there. Moving on: eye doctors. My vision has got suprise to me. Th eye doctor also was very helpful and I do like that office as well. 450 dollars later and I was on my way out (custom contact lenses and new lenses for my glasses) I went out to my car...put the key in the ignition...and...nothing. It wouldn't start! My brand new car I got on March! My 2012 Nissan wouldn't freaking start !oooooh I was angry! Long story short: I'm in a rental car (2012 Nissan Altima) until they can figure out what is wrong with my car. I am enjoying the fully loaded rental car though.

That was my yet upsetting. Something bad always has to happen when you get good.

I know this was long and not like my other posts but Oh we'll. And yes my disclaimer: I am not an English major, I do not write professionally, this blog contains grammatical errors as well as spelling errors...that's ok. I don't care much to make it perfect, you want perfect read a book.

Time to change...

There has been quite an unnoticed absence on my part. There is no explanation...just slacking.

I have fallen off of the bandwagon do many times it's insane. This blog started off as a weight loss blog but I failed at that, slowly it turned into just a regular blog. All in all that is fine too. Weight loss is more than just counting calories, exercising, eating healthy, and measuring. In order to get maximum results you must be able to release your emotions so that you will not resort to food.

In August it will be a year since my weight loss journey started. I have not lost as much by now as I had hoped...and that is ok. I do have hope for my weight to be back down and my pre-pregnancy jeans to fit by November. Dieting isn't a temporary thing, it's a lifestyle change.

I started a support group on Facebook for weightloss and overall health. People can give tips, encouragement to others, and vent on their moments of weakness to get support from others. Although, most don't comment I know that it helps me to be able to throw it all out there and just be real with people. Accountability is what helps me.

I have also started to assemble my race for the cure team. I am so very excited about that! In preparation for this event my sister and I are going to start walking a few nights a week. I encourage you all to do something similar. Grab a few friends and just head out a few nights. Walking is the best exercise you can do.

My thoughts tend to be very scatterbrained. Onto the next one: I am considering having my own coat drive for the winter. I would probably hold it in mid October. Please let me know of you are interested in helping to organize it or if you would like to donate. It will be more so a winter clothing drive. I really feel as though volunteer work is something I want to get more involved it.

When people consider change in Their lifestyles, they mostly consider their physical appearance. Dieting, hair styles, tanning, and other superficial things. I am going to a full min and body make over. You cannot expect to change one without the other. please remember that. It is very important to give back, to do something more than merely walking along in life. You don't have to be incredible to do incredible things. Jut because you aren't the smallest, don't have the best legs, biggest breast, greatest job, it doesn't matter. The foot print you leave on the world can be bigger than you ever imagined. Just be sure to give back.
