….YOU know…I must have gotten a tattoo that says “TOY” and it is on my forehead. Only certain people can see this tattoo it seems. I have to go back to the parlor and have them correct this little problem that I have…because it seems the same idiots take me to play with.


I kid…I clown…but I DO NOT PLAY!! When I am asking foir something that is work related…please just give me what I am asking for and stop all the bullshit!
Last time I checked I am a grown woman…not a child…not a toy…not stupid…

I think I will kill Spongebob soon…that man is really getting on the last nerve that I have left in my body.

Dear Lord!!


A Funny

Who’s in the closet????
A woman takes a lover home during the day while her husband is at
Her 9-year old son comes home unexpectedly, sees them and hides in
the bedroom closet to watch.
The woman’s husband also comes home. She puts her lover in the
closet, not realizing that the little boy is in there already.
The little boy says, “Dark in here.”
The man says, “Yes, it is.”
Boy – “I have a baseball.”
Man – “That’s nice.”
Boy – “Want to buy it?”
Man – “No, thanks.”
Boy – “My dad’s outside.”
Man – “OK, how much?”
Boy – “$250”
In the next few weeks, it happens again that the boy and the lover are
in the closet together.
Boy – “Dark in here.”
Man – “Yes, it is.”
Boy – “I have a baseball glove.”
The lover, remembering the last time, asks the boy, “How much?”
Boy – “$750”
Man – “Sold.”
A few days later, the father says to the boy, “Grab your glove,
let’s go
outside and have a game of catch.
The boy says, “I can’t, I sold my baseball and my glove.”
The father asks, “How much did you sell them for?”
Boy -“$1,000.”
The father says, “That’s terrible to overcharge your friends like
that..that is way more than those two things cost. I’m going to
take you to church and make you confess.”
They go to the church and the father makes the little boy sit in the
confession booth and he closes the door.
The boy says, “Dark in here.”
The priest says, “Don’t start that shit again; you’re in my closet now!!


Normal Weight

Just calculated my BMI…
That is a great accomplishment saying as though 33.8 and I was in the Obese range. It has been so long since my BMI has been in the Normal range. I would love to achieve Athletic …I’ll see what happens in the next couple of months.
Did Taebo last night…Advanced Live 5. I think this is one of the harder ones due to the fact that it is nothing but floor work. He calls it the Taebo Butt-Work On The Ground. Yes. I have to agree with him there.
Tonight will be me and Lou doing something…anything…to get him back in the swing of things. I want the exercise to become a habit again for him.
I’m posting from work…I have a ton of suspense to do before I can go home. The joys of being a secretary…


I’m also sitting here in a size 2 jeans that my minuscule sister in law gave me.  I know all about vanity sizing so before anyone says anything I am sure this is NOT a TRUE 2.  But you know what…to come from a size 18/20 (or bigger…I refused to buy anything else once those clothes got tight) and now today I am able to put a size 2 around my ass and look good in them…I gives a damn about a vanity size.  It still says 2 on my ass.   🙂
I’ll take that with open arms.  Now…to get in the 130’s in the next two weeks…
My original goal was 145…I am beyond that goal today.  I wonder if I will make another goal change once I get to 135. 
I woke up late this morning due to the power going off last night.  I know the power went off due to the blinking clock and the chirping of my smoke detectors.  That is driving me more batty than the rash that seems to be spreading across my lower back.  I didn’t get in a workout this morning so this evening I will either do Billy or go to the gym.  I was able to watch a video clip of the Advanced Moves of Taebo Amped.  I am getting hooked…it looks like it is an excellent workout.  There is also another one that he is coming out with…Celebrity Fit.  Billy Blanks is doing everything that he can to make me buy his new workouts.  Sigh…  I know I have it bad when I was actually considering getting information on Billy Blanks Jr. (yes he spawned a Mini Him)  and his Cardioke.  Cardioke is Cardio and Karaoke. 

If I get that DVD an intervention is in order.  I really will need to seek help.  🙂
Anyway, just checking in and posting.  I rarely weigh myself these days and tend to go by how my clothes fit and how I look.  I don’t know what crawled up my ass and made me decide to jump on the scale this morning.  At least I know I am making progress.  I still have the rash…it is driving me crazy and is now  going across my entire lower back.  Someone mentioned that I MAY be allergic to the jewelry that I have in my belly button.  Ah!  That could be the culprit since I do have somewhat sensitive skin, but it is surgical steel.  And why would I have a rash on my lower back ??  I will just have to do some investigating as to whether it is a food allergy or not.  In the meantime I will be buying stock in Benadryl. 

A Good Night!!

It will be a pleasant night for me. I did my Taebo…Billy kicked my ass and it was much needed. I am eating my favorite low carb meal (the wings are so tender) AND I am watching the FIRST Blade. Wesley Snipes  is ALL KINDS OF FINE in that movie!! I think I will follow this up with the Mummy. Arnold Vosloo ( Imhotep The Mummy) is just as much ALL KINDS OF FINE! Brendon Fraser isn’t that hard on the eyes as well.  Just eye candy everywhere!
What a great way for me to start off my week!! 🙂 I will sleep well tonight…


I am definitely allergic to something. I have this rash on my lower back that is driving me to distraction. I hope it isn’t the vitamins I am taking. My hair and nails are growing so nicely these days. 🙁 I do have an idea though…I just HAD TO HAVE a BK Big Fish sandwich. I bet I am breaking out from eating that crap. The sandwich was good…but right afterwards I started to feel queasy. I guess being low carb for such a long period of time has made my body really sensitive to anything processed. I hope this rash goes away soon…I am going crazy trying not to scratch my back…
Making some hot wings (my low carb favorite), some mock potato salad for me (made out of cauliflower…can’t even tell the difference), real potato salad for the kids, and some steamed veggies. I am about to get in some floor work with Taebo…
Later!! 🙂

Busy, Busy…

I have been really busy this week,,,unfortunately my workouts have suffered. It is really bad when Baby Brother notices that we haven’t sweat in a minute. I am happy that he noticed because that means he is READY!! I think I lost my motivation there for a second…got lazy. This week will be different. I just needed someone other than myself to notice that I have been a lazy ass for the past week. 🙂
The past week…I am glad it is over. I got a call from a place that I have been wanting to work at since I came back to the States from Germany. Yes…the Housing Office called me in for an interview!! I should be stoked…happy…joyous…BUT (and there is always a BUT) the job that they are offering me is a TEMPORARY position. It will not exceed a year. That is what the announcement said…and of course at the interview I was reassured that I would be placed into a permanent position before the assignment ends. All I got was assurances and promises…but the only thing that I can focus on is the fact that it is TEMPORARY. The interviewer liked me…I rocked the meeting. I knew that I would since I know this job forwards and backwards. It is perfect…within walking distance from home, two grades up from my current position, and it is the job that I have been wanting for almost two years. But it is TEMPORARY. I can’t risk it. So I can’t take the job. I would be voluntarily giving up my status with the Government as a permanent employee…I would lose a lot if they decided that I wasn’t working out, they ran out of money, they close down the office, blah blah blah. Pretty much I would look at a person like myself giving up a career conditional position for a temporary position as needing to take medication. Because I would say that they are out of their minds. I do take gambles…I am following a way of eating that is mostly frowned upon by the medical community…I am working on a relationship that most women would have said “Feck IT!!” I want a divorce!!…I went back to school at 32 ( a time when most people would say Why Bother)…I am a Military Wife (Enough said…sometimes you have to grow balls of steel to deal with this lifestyle)…I decided in mid 30’s to start getting tattoos and piercings (more on that comedy later)…BUT after almost 6 years with the Government working as a permanent employee, to take the risk that I will not have a job after a year is too great. I don’t care if the woman does a jig while promising me the moon and stars. The promises are NOT in writing…therefore I am looking at everything that she is saying as bullshit. I did let her know (after an hour of dog and pony shows on her part…pure recruiter speak) that they are asking a bit much out of me. I told her that I had to think on this…and that basically I wanted the opportunity to talk to them and let them know that there is a qualified person out there willing to work…but as a permanent employee. After the interview I ate and ate and ate…all the wrong stuff for my body. That tells me this is bothering me more than I knew.
Now…on to the piercing. Heh heh…yep…I got the belly button pierced. I finally got what I have been wanting for almost 21 years. I know why I waited 21 years to get this done…It HURTS!! I would rather get my whole body tattooed before I do that again. I never thought that I could feel a pain that was greater than childbirth. Piercing your belly button is right up there. They told me that I would feel a “pinch”. I don’t recall a pinch feeling like this…white hot pain of Super Nova-ing thousand Suns. I’m serious…I even asked the piercer how in the hell can he get the various parts of his body pierced like he has…he told me that you get used it it. Getting used to being stabbed does not sound doable to me. I have my belly button pierced…I can’t do anything about it now, but NO ONE will come near me with a needle (unless they need blood) again. I did the piercing because my stomach is the bane of my existence. I wanted to do something that would motivate me to keep it flat…and to pretty it up some. I have the loose skin from the massive weight loss and I will never wear a mid drift in public, but it is nice to look at my belly and see something pretty there. I have not focused on the wrinkled skin the past couple of days…just the pretty jewelery and the fact that this hurts like a bitch!! 🙂 Besides…getting a piercing is far cheaper and less painful than getting a tummy tuck.
So…I am done. I have gotten everything that I have been wanting to get done. I feel free…like I am flying…I don’t believe this is a midlife crisis (like most people think) or the fact that I finally snapped due to finding out about my husband’s infidelity (Although most women in my position would be in a stabbing mood. Being a Army wife has helped me be able to deal with a hell of a lot of crap. This is really nothing compared to what I have had to deal with over the years) . I see this is a way for me to cut all the ties that I put on myself to be the perfect Military wife and perfect Mommy. I finally did something that I wanted to do…and dammit that feels good. 🙂
Now…I am going back to the fitness thing…I have rested and bullshitted enough. I am so close to my goal I can actually see myself there, I just need to STOP THE SABOTAGE. Billy is still my main man, I cannot thank him enough for his spirit and his workouts. I don’t think I would be where I am now without Taebo. There will be some additional routines added to my daily plan. I am going to add weights (for real) to tone and incorporate more crunches into my exercise. I will stay low carb (why fix something that ain’t broke), drink tons of water and take my vitamins. I am glad that Lou mentioned that we haven’t done anything in a week…it was like someone threw cold water in me and woke me up from the coma that I was slowly slipping into.
The house is a mess…I need to get some chores done, but I WILL WORKOUT today. I can afford an hour of me time.

Putting Some Serious On My Face…

…AGAIN!! After a brief breakup with Bill (I cheated on him with the Precor) I decided that it was time to put some serious on my face again. Yesterday was the beginning of my new 21 day cycle of exercise using mostly Taebo. I will be using the Precor Elliptical on some days because I still like the way that I feel after using the Weight Loss program.
I am 18 pounds from the goal weight that I set for myself and I seem to be sabotaging myself. The last time I lost a major amount of weight the same thing happened…I gotaround 15 pounds close to the goal that I established for myself and then I flaked out. I really cannot understand why I do this…I am not afraid of making my goal. If anything I can’t wait to get there so I can see if I can maintain what I achieved…but I find myself accepting excuses that I make NOT to workout. Justifying eating brownies …my daughter made them…HOW can I resist something that my CHILD baked?? 😀 What I am doing is the equivalent of taking a flight across country and deciding to end my journey and get off the plane before it lands. Makes no sense that I have come this far only to start becoming sloppy and lazy with my eating and exercising. Sigh…
SOOOOO…I am putting that serious back on my face! Yesterday was Day 1 of my 21 days of exercise and eating clean.

Did Taebo Total, Workout 2- 1 hour. My eating was basically clean except for the couple of bites of brownies that my daughter baked for me and The Boy.
Taking CLA, ALA, GLA stack with Active Woman’s Multi-Vitamin (My hair is beautiful since taking these things)
Drinking more water than the law should allow.

Tonight I think I will kidnap Lou and we will go on the elliptical for an hour . I will stick to my diet (so far I have been good) and try out a new program called Traineo.
I am posting at work so this will be short…will post again later this evening. Gotta stay honest!!

My Zodiac…

…sorry been away for a minute.  Blame that on the new Sims 2 game that I have been playing. 🙂  It has goals that you have to meet and it is really fun.  So I have been trying to solve the games…just having fun.  But I am back…again.
I found this interesting zodiac

 CANCER:. The Cutie
MOST AMAZING KISSER.  Very high sex appeal. Great in bed!!! Love is one
of a kind.
Very romantic.  Most caring person you will ever meet!  Entirely creative.  Extremely random and proud of it.
Great telling stories.  Not a Fighter,
But will Knock your lights out if it comes down to it.
Someone you should hold on to.

Just thought this was interesting… find yours here.


…finally got my chili.  Lord that was good…I found a great recipe and modified it to my dietary needs…(took out the beansI HATE beans anyway so they weren’t missed by me)…and I was in heaven.  This is something that I think I will take to work tomorrow.  I added Unsweetened Cocoa (something I highly recommend if you are making chili)…not alot but just enough to give it a smooth taste.  Instead of jalepenos I added dried Chile Pequin (just a few…not crushed…whole added while the flavors were coming together…gave it a little “kick”).   I forgot just how easy chili is to make…ground meat, onions, bell pepper, celery, cumin, chili powder, cinnamin, salt, pepper, unsweetened cocoa, chili peppers, and stewed tomatoes.  It seems like a lot but when it is all chopped and put together it is just a matter of the flavors blending.  This turned out to be the best chili I have attempted in a long time.  The kids enjoyed some over rice with some sour cream…I had a bowl without the rice.  It is great to know that I can still enjoy some things going low carb.  I threw in a Mexican Salad (with eggs, advocados, cheese…yum) and I have a great meal.  I am thinking I will make this for Kellie and Lou when they come by for our “date night” on Friday.  “Date night”  is them coming by on Friday…I cook and then we watch 1 vs 100…yep…that is fun for us!!
I think I will take some time off from exercise today…just want to wrap myself up in a blanket and enjoy the warmth in my belly.
