Death and All His Friends

Today marks the end of an era.  Well, I am being dramatic, but it still sucks.  Tomorrow I will be taking on number 15 of my '21 before 21'... I am cutting out all junk food for 30 days (for those of you who pay any attention, I formerly had it as 'no sugar' but I figured no junk food was more accurate for what I wanted to achieve)

Ugh, I am so [not] looking forward to this!  But, I figured out of all the months left this one is the most appropriate...  Just before summer (aka, bathing suit season) and because I fear if I procrastinate any longer it will not be completed!

So I have convinced my mother to join the battle and we are doing this one together (I needed her to so she would not be bringing junk in the house and tempting me..*cough*... and for her health, of course)   However, prepping for this month of good eating has been a very fulfilling time!  It has been quite a chore ridding the cupboards of all things tasty hehehe 

It should be noted that I am a chocoholic, this could get messy.
I went and saw Iron Man 2 the other day, and I've got to say that I was impressed!  I never quite know what to expect with sequels, and there have definitely been a few that lowered my expectations *ahem* transformers 2.. Lion King 2.. need I go on?

But Iron Man 2 has been officially added to my list of winners, along with the Bourne trilogy, Die Hard series, and yes, Twilight Saga [guys can insert eye roll here] 
Hmmm what else to tell you?   On Wednesday I am bringing my snake, Sydney into a grade 8 class for my friend [lets call him] Cory's project.  I foresee that the teacher is expecting me to bring him in a confined glass tank instead of the pillow case he will be travelling in.... and if all goes well, at least one kid will wet their pants (I mean pee, get your mind out of the gutter! hehehe) and perhaps someone will faint...... Don't judge me;  If I've gotta go back to elementary school for the day I at least want some excitement out of it ;)  

Mum and I before our 30 days of hell.


  1. Good luck to you and your Mum on your healthy eating quest - though I have to say neither of you look as though you need to lose weight. :)

    Can't wait to hear how the teacher reacts to the snake! LOL

  2. Thank you! And the purpose of this month isn't to 'lose weight'.. it is more for just having a healthier diet and gaining better self control :)

  3. Dearest Joy; You are beautiful. I know you and your mum both will be able to accomplish this no problem. You're both so strong.

    And I do desperately hope I can make it out there to rock swimsuits and shorts with you for a bit.

    Love always <3
