Best Quote of the Week!!!

"Chocolate won't let you down!" 

I mean really how extremely true is that!!! Unless you don't like chocolate or are allergic to it then I am very sad for you. So now I am going to make this quote even more true by eating some chocolate in hopes that it makes my night even the tiniest bit better.

Complain, Whine, Complain

This is just for me today. I have been the biggest complainer, whiner, or whatever else you want to call it this week. Remember my whole "be positive" part of my 2011 plan, ya, don't know where that went! Now mind you I can give you some pretty darn good excuses and reasons why I'm complaining but in the end they are still just excuses. I haven't looked at any positives this week. I let circumstances and my emotions take me down and looking back it was basically pathetic.

Of course I didn't think it was pathetic until the end of the week, mainly last night after our ladies Bible study. My sister teaches it and we are going through the fruit of the spirit. Last night we went over Faith and surprisingly complaining came up. If you can imagine I felt a little ridiculous but realized it's true. Complaining, worrying, whining, it all says no faith. Not just faith in God, but in yourself, those around you, and what you believe. I tried being more positive today and not focusing and what was frustrating me, had faith that God would work it out and that I could handle what was given. Amazingly enough I had a much much better day. So, if everything is going wrong and you are having the most miserable day of your life have some faith, be positive, and see the difference.

Stop complaining! Have faith!

Rave Review!

I've actually been using Origins since May 2010 and I am still loving it! Usually with face products I buy something new before I even finish one bottle because I stop liking it and feel like it stops working. I literally would have bottles and bottles of moisturizers, creams, and face washes sitting around half empty that I wasn't using. Not anymore!!!

The picture is of my newest purchases and I got the great deal! The middle container which is their GinZing eye cream is normally over $30 by itself and I got everything shown for that price. I have been squeezing the life of the little sample bottles of eye cream I've had for months now! The bottle on the far left is Modern Friction, an exfoliater that works great. The bottle on the far right is the GinZing moisturizer and is great for summer since it has a little tint in it.

I really love their products. I have a face wash, serum, a day and night moisturizer, the stuff I bought this weekend and I also use their tinted moisturizing foundation. My skin feels great! I don't get flaky spots and I have less trouble spots. I love it all! It's a little pricey for what I usually spend but it lasts a looong time. Every bottle I've had has lasted at least 6 months no problem and they do sets for great deals just like what I bought this weekend.

So this was longer than I meant it to be but I couldn't just say it was great! lol If you have an Origins near you call and set up a mini facial for yourself and see for yourself!

Oh, how I love it! I don't get to eat it that often but I love love love sushi! I even found a decent place here in Michigan. Granted it isn't as cheap as Hawaii but it's good. I have my favorites and I got all three of them tonight.
In the top left corner is a Volcano roll, then the MSU roll with crab salad on top, and the smaller roll is spicy tuna. Doesn't it look fabulous!  Mmm...Yummy! I'm full but it still looks good! I used a coupon at JcPenny last night and got a new top for $3.00. Good deal yes? Here it is!
Fun and something different from the rest of my wardrobe. Now to lose weight before I buy a bunch more clothes so I have a real reason and don't need even more clothes. Sigh...such a process!

Quote of the day

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.  ~Victor Frankl
There isn't much I can say to expand on this quote. I believe sometimes the only we option we have is to look within ourselves at our problems, our issues and make changes to help change where we are at. It isn't easy but the results are great.

Day 4!

Day 4 of no pop in the morning for me! So far so good! The test will be tomorrow morning when I go to the store for my co-worker's and I Friday ritual, real pop or non diet. I will be purchasing a diet pop for her and Izze natural soda for me. Well that's the plan for now at least. No I will stick to it! I can't quit now! I've also gone walking twice this week before work and my legs are SORE! I have the Reebock EasyTones and I am feeling it! No pain, no gain though. I want to lose weight and be healthy. I want to sleep better and feel better overall. That is the plan and I am sticking to it! That's all I have for now, no other inspirations or exciting news. I might have an idea for a craft but we shall have to see about that later. All I have left is a picture of me, in a massive hat. This was taken on my birthday right before Easter when all the Easter "bonnets" were out. (If you haven't see Judy Garland in Easter Parade not sure if you will get that) It was a good day.
