The no wheat, no dairy, no red meat diet.
This diet is not about calorie consumption - it's about creating a balance in your body, free from particular chemicals and such that cause an imbalance. And for me, that just happens to be dairy, meat and wheat - and alot of other stuff.
I know it sounds a bit weird but I did this a few years ago when I was constantly ill and in pain. It worked. A wonderful side effect was that I dropped all my excess weight.
What happened - I hear you say?
Well, I started eating things here and there that I shouldn't so I piled all the kilos back on.
But as of today - NO MORE.
I am 20+ kilos overweight. I don't care how long it takes. I just plan to be my healthy weight by the time my 30th birthday rolls around.
Other news - I went to see the doctor about my hand. He believes I have carpal tunnel syndrome. NICE. So in two weeks I have a date with a neurologist to find out for sure. Then after that I don't know exactly. Operation perhaps. I don't care - I just want it fixed. It hurts!!
And the final piece of news - back smoking again. Can you believe it? After a whole month!!
Yes I am really disappointed in myself. But I will try again when I am ready. I am really trying to limit them for now.
Haven't scrapped in a while. It's my right hand that hurts - so it makes it a bit hard.
But I have ordered a whole heap of yumminess with the money from next month (that I haven't been paid yet) Back to old habits - OOPS!!
What a downer of a post. That's just me at the moment!!

The card review - the cards were not exactly as I thought. A bit too thin than I like. (I like sturdy) And a bit smaller than I thought. Didn't exactly line up when folded. And the envelopes got smooshed in the mailing box. They did arrive within a timely manner - so that was good.
I think it is day 21 today. I've lost count. Feeling a little stressed and overwhelmed. And severe lack of sleep doesn't help.
Michael is off to Indy tomorrow. He is so excited!
My internet sucks at the moment. It is really slow. Like slower than dialup and it's a pain in the ass!! I don't know why it's like this. But I want it fixed. It's driving me insane!!
That's all -

I am hoping they are matte and not glossy. I hate the glossy cards. Anyway I should get them next week - so I'll let you know what the quality is like. Hopefully they are exactly what I think they are. So happy. I have been searching for months!! I think Blue Edge Crafts is going to be my new best friend!!
Off to do my happy dance now ;o)

Haven't scrapped anything today - although that's not to say I won't later.
I just don't think I've posted it here before.
Today Cakey went back to school. And I tell you what - she looks so cute with a haircut. Hubs and I went to check the mail and borrowed some movies. Having a bit of a blah day. I watched "because i said so" downstairs and he watched "28 days later" upstairs and then we are going to watch "oceans thirteen" tonight.
And that's all today.
Got to hang washing out and go and get the kiddles from school soon. Boring day. Have no energy today. Need more sleep. It took me hours last night to fall asleep. Not happy! I love sleep!!
Catch you tomorrow -

First up I paid school fees for this term. Put away money for the groceries and insurance. (i get paid monthly)
And with my new budget I have $100 a month to spend how I want.
So I placed my order this morning for the Kristina Contes Collection at Scrap In Style. And with shipping that leaves me with $50 for the rest of the month.
I won't get it for about 2 weeks - so I'm thinking I need a bit of instant gratification. Perhaps a little trip down the scrapyard. I just really don't want to blow it and regret it. Especially since I'm on such a tight budget. And I don't exactly need anything. I don't think. Oh..blank square cards - but they don't sell them. Hmmm. What to do?
Maybe I'll just sit on it for a while!!
Have a great Saturday!!

but I have a plan for next time.
Also scrapped the water baby layout last night. How cool are the 7 gypsies glitter sheets. They are so easy and go on so nice. It's a really nice subtle glitter. Love it. Definately want more of that!! I can tell mine isn't going to last long!!
I had to move my desk around again. My compuet keeps shutting dow (i think it is overheating) so I have put it on the side part of my table in front of the fan. So far I've had no problems. Touch wood!!
Still got a cough. But haven't had bad cravings today. Going well. Bit of a headache. And feeling really exhausted. Can't wait to get better and get started on losing weight. I have 25kgs to lose. And I reckon that's going to take a while!!
Kids go back to school next week. I think Michael goes back on Monday and Caitlin goes back on Tuesday. I'm going to miss them being around!!
See you tomorrow -

Not a very good day today.
Bought a packet of cigarettes and a jar of coffee and some mud cake.
I had one coffee, half a piece of cake, and the cigarettes are unopened on top of the fridge.
Don't know how I feel.
Still sick. Every time I cough - my lungs burn.
That can't be good. Maybe I should go to the doctors.
Made these 2 cards last night.
No scrap action today. After moving the garage and my desk around - my printer cable doesn't reach. Think I might have a shuffle and reorganise.
See ya -
