HOW I LOVE YOU!
Big T and I spent this weekend at my in-laws new place just outside of Innisfail.
( I just had to add this picture of my GORGEOUS sister in-law!)
its SO BEAUTIFUL THERE! they bought a brand spankin' new trailer and set it on a campground for years and years of family fun to come! one of those fun things was going TUBING!!
it was SO FUN! (even tho my back is STILL sore from all that bumping around!
Then it was BIG T and I!
things got a little...WETTER
all in all the whole weekend was AH-MAZING! - and lets just say im a little...RED from the weather. I cant wait to get to MEXICO in one month and get my little but burnt to a CRISP!
I put off the cleanse untill the end of this week. dont worry, I havent given up on it! I need to tape my STEP VIDEO this week (another rant...for another time) siiiiigh.
Thursday or FRIDAY I will give a FULL REPORT ON MY PLAN!!

I wanted to be a street performer.
I wanted to sing, and have people appreciate me for my talents.
once I won a competition held in a small town for the best busker present.
I really thought I would do it, move to Victoria, hit the road...
but like most other people, I grew up
and im not dissapointed with what I grew up to be, my little brother asked me the other day why I stopped singing...
after a long pause I said... I moved to college and didnt have a piano.
that was a lie.
I went to college and sort of... lost myself. I got replaced by someone else. and since that time I have managed to get some of that girl back... but not that little part that wanted to live the streets full of hope, dreams and
(this picture was taken when I was recording a demo many many years ago)
Today we went to a Festival here in Edmonton.
a street performer festival! (hence the rant). we did all sorts of things.
I learned how to JUGGLE!
LEGIT. I know in this picture there are only two balls, I got up to three by the end...promise!
there was also FESTIVAL FOOD!
and of course... the performers!
this guy was my
THESE PEOPLE ARE SO TALENTED!
all in all it was a great day. T of course, was working his little butt off, and I, if course...got a little work out in... Lemonade diet starts MONDAY! - I still wanna know who's with me?!?!

just in general, but also, because I got to have my lil' brother JOSHUA here with me!
its summer, so he's done school and wanted to get away for a bit, so I grabbed at the chance to have a WORKOUT BUDDY! were both doing at least one or two work outs a day! and its been FABULOUS! - he makes me work hard, I mean, the kid is 3.5% body fat... 4 POUNDS OF HIS LITTLE 110 POUNDS IS FAT. well, that doesn't make my 26% body fat percentage look awesome...does it?
you guys know me, always looking for the newest diet craze. while im unemployed I thought I would give this one a try.
THE MASTER CLEANSE!!
BASICALLY.... you only drink maple syrup, lemon juice, water and cayenne pepper in a combo all day...every day...anywhere from 10-40 days!
copy and past this link to a youtube video of a woman who did the cleanse for 40 days!!
I have heard its tough, and I think im really ready for it...im going to mexico for my honeymoon!! (only a year late!) We leave at the end of august. I want to look my BEST!
I am going to track my progress here starting on Monday, all my stats ect.
so... I guess my real question is...
WHO IS WITH ME?!?!

my new obsession.
I have always been a diet coke girl, the "real" coke was just too sweet for me! but honestly, just out of nowhere yesterday I cracked a diet coke and was like....GROSS! I could taste every bit of aspartame in it! how upsetting!!! I was suddenly craving REAL COKE! EEP! sugar overload.
so I decided to try out the new coke zero.
let me tell you, its a winner!
how DO they do it?
well I did a little surfing, and I found this SORT OF UPSETTING article on the ingredients for coke zero...
Coke Zero Ingredients
Coke's marketing people talk about "zero consequences", but can they promise Coke Zero's ingredients are without consequences?
The ingredientsare listed on Australian cans of Coke Zero. Water anyone?
Colour (150d) - aka "Sulphite Ammonia Caramel"
Food acid 338 - aka "Phosphoric Acid" (Also used for rust removal!)
Food acid 331 - aka "Sodium Citrates" (Also used in photography and as an anticoagulant of blood stored for transfusion!)
Sweetener 951 - aka "Asapartame" (According to the US FDA, "the [National Cancer Institute] currently is studying aspartame and other dietary factors as part of a larger study of adult brain cancer." You might want to wait for the results before you drink it. Also, avoid this one if you're moody!)
Sweetener 950 - aka "Acesulfame Potassium" (Looking for reasons to avoid this sweetener? Look no further...)
Preservative 211 - aka "Sodium Benzoate" (Undiluted this stuff isn't too bad... Just don't let it touch your skin!)
is it super terrible that this upset me, but I will probably still drink the 24 cans of coke in my fridge?
maybe a little...

So, it's official.
I'm in love with my Iphone.
That's the only real reason that I haven't been on my blog.
I gave up on this for 2 months
but let me assure you...
My life has moved on.
My fitness level is increasing.
I'm teaching all tracks but two on stage in class.
Step is consuming me. I have less than two weeks to submit my video to Toronto And become the next step instructor for GoodLife Fitness.
T and I are in our new pace! I don't miss our old little hole at all.... sometimes I get nostalgic for our first little home... but I LOVE OUR NEW PLACE!! it is just me, or is a home that is almost new, WAY easier to keep clean?!?!? I feel so much more domestic!
I quit my admin job at Goodlife, I decided to just be an instructor. I mean... I loved my job, I just needed different things out if a job. So I quit, found a replacement and ran.
I ran away to southern Alberta and spent two wonderfully weeks with my grandma Craig. By far the most amazing woman I have ever met. We hiked and walked and she told me stories from when she was young. We laughed and cried and read books and baked cookies... And I was calm, man, more calm than I have been in months!! oh, and I cut my hair! im still trying to get used to it!! but its so much easier to do!
So now I'm back. I have a new perspective, a calm perspective. I have a new...
I will stay posted!!
Oh ya, my current weight is 145. My list of excuses include, I've been doing alot of weights, Im PMS'ing... And... Well, your not here to listen to this are you.
Game on. Again.

A 2009 NISSAN ULTIMA! - its a REALLY nice car, I mean, I LOVE IT. we drove it around all afternoon. doesn anyone have any opinions on it? this is a pic of the interior. were thinking black with black interior....SOOOO ORIGINAL (*inster eye-roll) but I guess I need to grow up sometime.
.T. and I had a good day, we took the boss man for a walk..which is quite a problem - you see, the HAIR comes into play again, he gets COVERED in mud, but it was fun, hes exhausted by the end, and we get a little break :)

the family farm
the old friends
the old smells
the old feelings.
.T. and I got to go to CANMORE for the weekend last weekend just to spend some time together. we haven't really done a honeymoon yet...so we take little weekends whenever we can, were still hoping South America or maybe Mexico, is in our near future...life can get so out of control!
but anyways, while we were in Canmore ALL I wanted to do was drive the little while west to BANFF and get a CARAMEL APPLE!
seriously. im obsessed (but not pregnant ;) )
when .T. just wanted to go home, I moaned and complained the whole way home until finally, exasperated, .T. said
"LISTEN, I promise I will get you a stupid caramel apple in Calgary!"
when we got back to T's parents house we started the search. who would have thought it was so hard to find a caramel apple in Calgary? we called EVERYWHERE in the south, further north, north north... until we finally found ONE PLACE to get a caramel apple.
by then I had T's little sister Becca on board, and we were both FRANTIC to get a good caramel apple! - T - but who wants to drive that far for a stupid caramel apple??
- WE DO!
finally .T.'s mom piped in. okay girls, lets just go
we hopped in the car and drove oh, probably 45 minutes across town (see how easy it would have been to just go to Banff?...not to rub it in...)
to Sunridge Mall!
THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN CHOCOLATE COMPANY! - the best caramel apples in town...or...the only?
we each had to have three
all in all - it was the HAPPIEST day that I have had in AGES. If I sound like a spoiled brat...hey, nobody is arguing... and if you call me a fat kid... I might be offended...but again - not arguing!
Thank you T, mom, and Becca!
