Kat Williams
Spot
America
Bob (I renamed him)
Finally the ghetto crab ….Mr. Crab
I’m hoping they will live. Don’t wanna be the Death Dealer to animals again.
Later!

Jambalaya Soup!

image
I used the recipe as a guide. I substituted shrimp for Ham and used Turkey sausage instead of pork.
I added bay leaf …some allspice and lemon juice (the acid brightens the soup) ๐Ÿ™‚ There is no starch at all in this dish.
This is diet food people! I love low carb!
Off to get my grub on…

Hungry!

Okay…did the fast for about two days. I’m starving. Just FYI…The “Miracle” 48 hour diet sucks. Big time. It did help get some stuff outta my system. And the borderline alcohol poisoning was cured. ๐Ÿ˜› Still…this sucks. My eyes are watering. I’m definitely NOT one of those people who can fast and meditate. No reaching any chakra levels for me…all I want is a cheeseburger.ย ย ย  >.<
Going to the grocery store to get the fixins’ for my Jambalaya Soup.
Jeez! I don’t see how anyone does this fasting thing…I can’t think straight.
It does make you want a vegetable instead ofย a cookie.ย  Because you are starving for a nutrient or two…
Later!

Ugh!

I lost 4 pounds over the weekend. I would be joyous and happy if it was because of a GREAT diet and exercise. Nope…not the case. ๐Ÿ™
How did I lose so much over the weekend? A fun night out with the Girls and mixing different types of alcohol did it.
SICK.
AS.
A.
DOG….Friday when I came in. I haven’t been sick like that since my first drinking experience. I threw up my Soul and internal organs. Well that is what it felt like to me anyway. Note to self…DO NOT MIXED RUM AND COKE WITH AN AMARETTO SOUR. I haven’t hugged the toilet like that in about 25 years.
Phew…not a good look at all! Along with all the contents (and future contents it seemed) of my stomach went the will to drink or eat anything.ย  I have been drinking juice and water since Sunday night. I woke up this morning 4 pounds lighter. Something good came out of being Simple on Friday.
SINCE I have been literally fasting for the past two days I think it is a great time to embark upon my low carb (healthier version…lots of veggies added…who gets fat off a vegetable? I need the minerals anyway.) lifestyle again. This time it will be a diet consisting of mostly fish, poultry and vegetables. Bread…UGH…I really hate bread. I get bread and it goes bad because I have gotten so used to not eating it. Looking at that soup recipe and the pictures reminded me of how good I felt eating this way. Yay for chicken sausage! ๐Ÿ™‚
So… lost 4 pounds (in a bad way…but it is 4 pounds I will take it) and is now embarking on her low carb lifestyle again to lose the last 15.
Gonna be great!

Simple.

The past couple of days I have been a Simple Bitch. That’s right…I am calling myself Simple. I was worrying myself about things that I have no control over.
Crap!
I am what I am. It is what it is. Shit happens! ๐Ÿ™‚
Life is series of moments. Some of them are unpleasant BUT they do pass. I have a finite time on this Earth. I have decided that I will not dwell on the unpleasant things anymore. It’s time to start enjoying my existence…the gift I was given by God.
It will always be a lovely day!

 
I must live by the five G’s…GOOD GOD GIRL GET A GRIP! ๐Ÿ™‚

Best Bra Eva!

image
Late at night when I can’t sleep I have seen this informercial. I always said…”ok it’s a sports bra…big deal!” I always dismissed this because nearly none of the things worked.
This is totally different.ย  On a whim I went to Target and I saw it. It was 40.00 less than the informercial sold it for and has the two colors I like. Ugly looking sports bra but if you are endowed like I am…you are sick of being hurt and having those ugly rolls in the back that make you look like the Michelin man. Hey …it was 20 bucks for two bras. Not a bad deal…10 bucks a bra and I have paid way more than that for one bra.


OMG! Pipit this on…no lines in the back…the pressure is off my upper back…I’m supported, lifted, and Barney says it looks like I had.surgery.ย  I don’t think I will ever take this off…talk about being in a good mood! ๐Ÿ™‚ yay!
image
I also bought us a teloscoping back scratchier. Me an my T-Rex arms just can reach. ๐Ÿ™‚ talk about eyes rolling from scratch back heaven!
So…got my high ass panic attack inducing tires …and two awesome gadgets.ย  Turned out to be a good day!
๐Ÿ™‚ Ms. Fluffy

Aaaaaahhhh! Where is the Tylenol?

The Skittle (my Saturn Astra …looks just like a Skittle and about as big) needed new tires.ย 
I need to pray. ๐Ÿ™
Apparently my Skittle is the special
SPORTS PACKAGE SKITTLE.ย  My car came from the factory with 215/45/R18. To me that was gibberish other than…look at the wheels! Oooo …the rims are pretty!


It actually means you have to replace the tires with high performance/hard to find/everyone has to fecking order tires. Also…they pretty much cost an arm, leg, and soul. EACH.


So….I decided to grow a brain and said “gonna get used tires”.ย  I even mentioned my intent of shopping for tires on my Facebook. I had found 4 used tires for the cheap price of 160.ย  Not 160 each…160 for 4! Yay!
Then (like he felt a disturbance in the Force) Daddy called. Now why did I mention I was getting used tires. After being fussed at and making my Daddy almost say the F word a couple of times I agreed maybe I should buy new tires. Good thing he did call…it made Barney and I look closely at the “deal” we were.about to make. The tires were slashed on the sides…the treads were great…the sides slashed with a razor or box cutter.
Sigh.
No way I was getting those. Off to Big O Tires…650.00, a laughing fit, and panic attack later…I have new tires and warranty for about 4 years.
I hate the Skittle. Seriously.

My Jeans…

…they tell me 5. I am aware that they speak with a forked tongue. And they are full of “stretchy”. ๐Ÿ™‚ But…just like the skirt that said 4…I will take it. Feel good about myself and my efforts…and walk around believing my ass is a 5.
I understand why vanity sizing was around…just for people like me that need a boost in their morning mood.
JEANS SAY 5…liar…but thank you jeans for making my day.ย  And…no muffin top at all.
๐Ÿ™‚ Ms Fluffy.

Thick.

Sigh. Everytime I hear that word a Sequoia comes to mind.ย  Big …wide …prehistoric.ย Granddad’s toenails! Ew. I don’t understand why ANYONE prefers to be called “thick”.
Now “fluffy”….that brings a better image to my mind. A kitten with a big bow eating out of a crystal bowl. ๐Ÿ™‚ Everybody likes fluffy things.
Everybody! Think about it….would you like a fluffy pillow or a thick pillow? A fluffy towel or a thick towel?ย  I would rather refer to myself as being something pleasant…Just sayin’ ๐Ÿ™‚
I be not a tree…or old grandad’s toenails.
๐Ÿ™‚ Ms Fluffy.
