5 ways to ruin your day

1- Be on a 500 calorie a day diet.
2- Work near or with some who is completely useless with the task at hand.
3- Be named Julie.
4- Come home to a messy apartment with no clean dishes.
5- Go try and unwind in a hot tub, then watch someone drop your expensive  phone in it :)

That was yesterday..... today wasn't much better. I love ya Opa.

Happy birthday to you. I wish I could see you today but I cannot as you are enjoying school and the nice weather of the California coast. You are 19 today and out conquering life. I know you are going to have a great life that you made for yourself. It's crazy you are almost 20, I remember you being a toddler destroying every cake mom ever brought home...It was like you knew they were always on the edge of the counter and they ended up on your head every time.

You are so talented in everything you do. You are an amazing guitar player and an amazing brother and I'm so fucking proud of you. I just wish I could see you more to tell you that. I hope that joining the Navy doesn't make it so were some strangers who share a mother. I hope you get everything you wanted today :) Know that I love you like a fat kid loves cake!

This is the Batman cake. I managed to not eat 1 crumb while making it. The 1st tier is a giant rice crispy treat, the second is a double layer fudge with cream cheese filling.

Also about 3 pounds of fondant. YUM! I'm pretty sure this is one kick ass cake. Ashlei and Holly decorated and I helped bake it. We will see how much I can refrain from eating tonight.

I have petunia again- I want one! This dog is adorable. (Below is her what the fuck are you doing when i'm trying to sleep look)

I recently got a new product, LiLash. It's suppose to make your lashes grow to super lengths as well as make them much thicker. Downside- it's 130 bucks. It takes about 3 weeks to start working and I can't wait to see the results. I hope its worth the money. I took a picture of my eye on the first day I used it and will also take one after 3 weeks.

I really really wish I had taken before pictures so I could post them with the after pictures of the HCG diet. I am down almost 20 pounds and have already passed my goal weight of 135. I had to make a new goal of 130 which is smaller than I have been in about 3 years. Sticking to this diet was harder than quitting smoking. Food is fucking everywhere and you don't notice how much until you can't have any. I have spider senses for fast food, I can smell it from a mile away and probably tell you what it is. Nothin like watching people eat Cafe Rio while you eat your 100 grams of chicken with 1/2 cup of spinach. 4 more days.

Since I am not able to eat pretty much anything that is not chicken or a vegetable I have been having major cravings. Most of them are for pastries. How unfortunate that that most delicious things are the worst for you. I have been having the urge to bake a cake lately but I can't in fear that I will binge and have to start over on this regimen. I have only 5 days left....but another 3 full weeks until I can have starches or sugars :( . Going grocery shopping doesn't help at all. I was at Harmon's on Friday and spent about 30 minutes in the kitchen utensil section just looking at everything I am going to buy once I can eat normal food again. I'm thinking that the reason for the cravings stem from that store.... specifically this
You will be mine cake pan. I more than likely won't be eating much that comes out of you but I'm still gonna get ya! In the mean time I need to find a good chocolate cake recipe for me and Holly to make for Chris's (her husband - Jeremy's cousin) birthday on the 21st. They are going to be making a fondant batman. This should be interesting to see how it turns out.

You are at the University Hospital right now laying unconscious in a bed with tubes running out of you and blood coming out of your ears. You are 87 years old and fell backwards today and hit your poor bald head. No matter what the outcome of this I just hope you know how much I love you. I remember crying uncontrollably when you and Oma would have to go home from visiting. You have always been so sweet and such a great man to Oma and all of her kids. You are an old school barber with a sweet shaving kit. Lady in red will forever remind me of you. I hope that you wake up but If you don't, I hope your heaven is the era when ladies were dames and big band was what it was all about. I love you Opa.

This took place in the bathroom at work.

Holly: You need to learn to do it yourself.

San:(In a very thick french accent) Dude you godda do that shit quick...Once the needle hits your skin its like butter.

Me: Ok Ok Ok .... UGHHH is it in yet.

Holly: Oh my god.....no.

Me: I'm scared! Will you do it for me?

San: Oh just let me do it. Shit- did that hurt? I hit a vein, that's gonna bruise.

Nikki walks in just as I have a filled syringe hanging out of my hip and my jeans pulled down.

Only 3 more weeks :( Looking at the scale every morning makes it totally worth it!! 139 today!
