The End of the World?

I'M ALIVE (transfusion not necessary).....just incase you don't know what's going on you can read my post

OK I may be exaggerating a little bit, but it is the end of 2011. According to the Mayan's that's another story though. Funny thing is that I wear a Mayan calender around my neck at least a couple of times a week.

So I guess this post should be about my Greatest Accomplishments, Funniest & Embarrassing Happenings, Made you Cry Moments, and Life in general.

Greatest Accomplishments:
  • February - Decided to change my life for the better and lose weight, and get healthy.
  • April - 20lbs down, my first official "Bra & Panty" comparison pic.
  • May - 1st goal reached.
  • June - 40lbs down, my second "Bra & Panty" comparison pic.
  • September - 10 years married....and yes I would classify this as an
  • September - Completed the C25K
  • October - Won $100 in a weight loss challenge
  • November - 60lbs down, my third "Bra & Panty" comparison pic.

Funniest/Embarrassing Moments:
  • April - My pants fell down on me at the gym when running on the treadmill
  • May - 1st day of owning an iPhone and this is what happens.....
  • December - This was funny, but scary at the same time when the damn Christmas Tree started smoking and almost caught fire.....Griswold Moment of the Year

Made You Cry Moments:

  • May - Trip to the Hospital, this was the beginning of a very stressful, unknown condition that carries on to this day. Lots of tests, medications, hospital visits, and it's still undiagnosed. There are speculations though.
  • July - I found a lump in my breast and had to schedule a mammogram.


  • June - The ducks in my yard. This made me smile for weeks. You never see stuff like this in my neighbourhood.
  • July - Adam pulls out his first tooth!
  • July - Made a list of words that mean EVERYTHING to me. I even use this as my desktop picture. I refer to it daily, and it helps me to keep focused.
  • October - Got a Big Girl Job!!!
  • November - Quit a Little Girl job and got rid of all the "little girls" that went with it. 
  • December - When Usher added me on Twitter

Well that pretty much recaps all the major things. The most important things though are my family, our health, and all my supporters (THAT MEANS YOU) in my life. That's all I need.

I am wishing you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR and may 2012 bring you everything you hope it will, happiness, success, and all of that good stuff. For all of you watching your weight I hope this year brings you the strength to continue and just be happy and heathy.

Mark my words, this will be "MY LAST" fat New Year!!!!!

Ok either I scared off all the male readers with the title of this post, or I attracted all the perverts.....probably the latter.....

Maybe I should have titled it Bloody Vagina.....hahahahahah

This post is about my neither regions. I am typing this from bed, and I am bleeding like a stuck pig. I have NEVER been like this before....EVER.

I am one of those women that roles my eyes when I hear a co-worker or any other female that bitches about having a bad time of the month, or the ones that take off 2 days every month cause "George" is visiting and they can't handle it.

I think I finally understand what they are going through. Mind you I didn't take any time off of work, and I have been drugging myself every 4 hours, but come on.....when will the bleeding end???

I feel like I'm being sucked dry by a vampire.....well maybe that wouldn't be such a bad thing if it was this vampire.....

I would totally be staining those sheets right now

I am definitely keeping "Always" and "Tampax" in business this month, maybe I can invest in some stock options......change every 6-8 hours my about every hour on the hour like clockwork

Why am I not dead yet????

In case you feel like donating some blood I am O-

So thank you Period Gods....I apparently pissed you off for being on the pill so long that I decided to go "O'Natural" and this is how you repay me......18 years of period pain saved up until now, might as well chalk it up to labour cause it's getting close......

If you guys don't hear from me by Christmas, please say a prayer as I have probably bled to death.

Christmas is fast approaching

It's one week until Christmas Day, there is only a "light" dusting of snow (which is ok for me personally) and I finally finished my shopping.

Plus a few purchases for myself of course.....

no makeup
Now I neeeeed some snow to rock this hat, but I LOVE IT!!!!!

I also picked up some add to my collection of course

Yes they are a little understated but they are gonna look great with my new leopard print sweater

Size Large.....that's a long way from XXL
Ok I know your not supposed to buy yourself presents when shopping for other people, but why not? A sale, is a sale, is a sale I say....grab it when you can!!!

Anyways here is Adam's list for Santa this year, he is a spoiled brat, but he's my brat and the only one I have so he got everything on this list EXCEPT the iPad and he even wrote the 2 after it....I mean really??? What 6 year old writes

Speaking of my is a pic of him and the old man...I was laying on the couch and they both decided to lay on me and crush me to death...but not before I snagged this

Tomorrow is a holiday for my family when we celebrate our Slava. If your not sure what that is I will try to explain:

Every Serbian Orthodox family has a patron saint. Each family celebrates the feast day of their saint with a unique Serbian Orthodox religious tradition Krsna Slava, on the day when their ancestors were baptized (Serbians accepted Christianity by families and whole tribes). This same saint is the family's saint from generation to generation through the centuries. Sveti Nikola (St. Nicholas) is my families patron saint which falls on December 19th

The Slava celebration includes:
• Icon of the family's patron saint, in this case, St. Nicholas
• A lighted candle, for Christ the Light of the World
• Slavsko zhito/koljivo, a boiled wheat dish, representing Christ's death and resurrection
• Slava bread (Slavski kolach), decorated with cross and seal, for Jesus Christ the Bread of Life
• Red wine, for Christ's precious blood that washes away sin
• A priest, who blesses the home and all present, offering prayers and the Thanksgiving Prayer (molieben) before the icon
Here is a pic of our icon St. Nicholas:

So with that being said there is about 30 people coming to my in-laws tomorrow and I need to spend the rest of the day today helping with the cooking and the preparation. One day this will be my responsibility as my husband is the oldest son so the tradition will pass down to him, then will pass down to our son.

This is definitely the worst time of the year to get back on track with my diet & exercise. God give me strength as I do not have any. This time last year I wasn't doing this, I didn't start till February.

On top of Slava, I still have Christmas & New Years to look forward to, then Christmas & New Years again because in our family we also celebrate the Old Calendar which is January 7th for Christmas & January 14th for New Years......I am realllllllly testing my willpower.

Lazy Sunday

Friday I was driving into work after a light dusting of snow and I actually stopped to take a picture….there is something just so beautiful when the snow is untouched….it’s peaceful.

This put me in a great mood at work so I decided to take a picture at my desk for everyone to see how happy I was…….besides it was Friday and the weekend was almost here!

Then when I got home I told my husband to take a full body pic of me as I was feeling kinda fat and I wanted to see myself in my jeans…..

…not to bad, but I definitely still need some work

So THEN my weekend began with me waking up felling like a bag of shit. Now if I would have been partying up the night before, I would have at least had a reason, but noooooo I woke up with a sore throat and a nose that was so stuffed it was giving me a damn headache.

I literally went through a box of Kleenex in a afternoon.

Fun Fact for the day…..did you know that the nose produces 4 cups of snot each day??? That’s right folks what you don’t blow or sneeze out the rest you swallow….we are booger eaters no matter what…..

So I pretty much have spent my weekend off in bed….at least I got my Christmas cards done and my tree up…..wanna see???

Funny thing was I was sick LAST weekend too…..but I managed to go to the Christmas Parade with my family… is my little elf.

Fast Forward to today……I’m am sitting at my in-laws typing away, drinking lots of tea, and working on “word families” with my son….you know when you pick the ending “at” and then you have to write all the words that end in that….cat, rat, mat….etc.

It’s a lazy day, filled with nothing, nothing and more nothing and a little bit of laundry here and there. Hopefully calgon will show up and take me away somewhere… a white sandy beach, with crystal clear blue waters, and a hot naked man.

This week I plan on getting back on track full force, since I got wayyyyy off these past couple of months…..I think I needed it though.

I’m pretty sure I gained back about 8-10 pounds which really sucks, but hopefully my body will burn it off pretty fast since I have been kinda dormant for the last few months.

Here is to kicking it into high gear again, and getting back into my groove. Oh how I have missed being in a routine……

I will start posting my weigh in’s again once I get back to my lowest weight which was 219lbs… patient my friends I will be back there in no time!!!

Do any of you guys use Twitter? Well I do, and sometimes I find it less stressful and dramatic as Facebook, you can follow me at @Bonnanza..... the other day I get a email saying Usher Raymond (you know the singer) is now following you.....EXCUSE ME?????

So at first I figured it was just a fake account, and someone was playing a joke. Apparently not. You see Twitter will place a checkmark on a validated account so you know it is the real person (they only do this for famous people). Did this Usher have a checkmark? You better believe

My Twitter profile pic must be working wonders......hahahaha
