In honour of Super Fun Night’s season finale – yes, I am one of two people that I know that watch the show – I’m going to write in Kimmie Boubier’s style from the show and make this a “dear diary” type of entry. You can have your drug induced “Breaking Bad’s” and your motorcycle Mama-ing “Sons of Anarchy”, your Debbie Downer of a show like “Mad Men” or your hipster loving “Girls”. Ok I used to love “Girls” but seeing Lena Dunham constantly naked finally got to me. You can judge me if you want, but it was too much of a not so good thing. My top favourite show is “The Mindy Project” – I’m like the queen or more appropriately , the princess of the feel good, laugh out loud programs that show comedic promise only to languish in the ratings cellar. What would Dr. Oz say about this? He’d probably say that it’s good that I have hope. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that both shows will be back next year.
Now…back to business…
I only have 45 weeks left in my year long experiment to live the way that Dr. Oz suggests. I’m starting to worry that pretty soon, without this to concentrate on, that my life will have no meaning. Oh right, it’s week 45 not week 5 – never mind. I will still have a meaningful life for a little while yet. PHEW! Dodged a bullet on that one.
This week, I learned a lot and spent a little. Well, not a little but just over $18 for a bottle of Jamieson B50 Vitamins. Those were really my only purchase. I tried really hard to remember to take them, not so successful, but I will get there. Here are my booms and busts of the week:
Boom – Bought the B 50 Vitamins
Bust – only took them once
Boom – excited about my better night’s sleeps
Bust – didn’t sleep for one minute (truly) last night and am suffering for it now
Boom – Being really diligent about eating nuts
Bust – keep forgetting to grind my flax seed
Boom – drank 8 glasses of water a day
Bust – for the most part (totally on track today)
Boom – Stopped picking my cuticles
Bust – For one whole day. I am taking it one day at a time, just like our mayor, Rob Ford – or is he?….Bad example
Boom – I’ve been taking Zinc supplements for my acne religiously
Bust – I have a pimple the size of my baby toe on my chin – I’m hoping that it just takes time to work
So you see Dear Diary, as Dr. Oz, and my favourite rapper, Deepak Chopra would say, oh right, he’s a spiritual man, not a Kanye disciple, in life, there is balance.
