Californians, please vote!

Tuesday, June 03, 2014

And since I've been working in ballot processing, here is my two cents' worth of advice: please follow the instructions and vote correctly. The write-in line is only for valid, registered candidates. Do not write in your friend's name or Mickey Mouse or "none of the above". If you don't want to vote for any of the candidates, leave it blank and save your wisecracks for Facebook.

ANYTHING on a write-in line causes the ballot to be spit out of the machine, and it must then be handled by a team of workers who manually review the ballot against the list of candidates and then resubmit it for tabulation - this extra time costs taxpayer dollars, so please don't waste it.

For a list of registered candidates, see your city/county's elections website.

    Do you have netflix, or access to somoen with Netflix? There is an awesome, awesome documentary on there called "Hungry for Change"


I learned a few great tips on there for my new lifestyle that really really help.

Number 1 was "never tell yourself, "I can't have that" when looking at a food you would normally eat, but doesn't work well in your plan. Instead tell yourself: "I am choosing something better".

Also I liked the tip about actively visualizing your body the way you want it, and visualizing the number on the scale you want to see. I try that at night.

Good luck to you!

Rule #11

Saturday, February 15, 2014

I had an epic fail yesterday.

I ate well all day, went for a long walk, drank my water, went and worked in my storage unit for a while... and then I went to the grocery store hungry.

The end result? A bucket of fried chicken, a pint of Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Therapy ice cream, and a very upset tummy.

11) NEVER GO TO THE GROCERY STORE HUNGRY.

That is all.

    I know, I know! I have to remind myself everytime!!!


We went to the movies the other day right after I re-started my weight loss regime. I purposelly ate a lot of raw veggies before we went so that I would be so full it would be easy to resist the popcorn and candy that I would normally indulge in.

My 8 year old got a small popcorn and some candy, and I was able tp resist taking even 1 bite.

Yes, I know 1 bite is not going to ruin a day, BUT I know myself, I go down a slippery slope, 1 bite turns into me tumbling down a hill! That's true for some candy, pizza and tortila chips for me. I have trouble eating a small portion and ending up overindulging.

Well, hiopefully I can remind myself about the lesson you learned next time I go shopping.
Thanks for sharing!

    I agree lol. Fortunately I go shopping when I am full. I never did this on purpose, just works out that way. How are you feeling?

    Yes..I am also vulnerable when shopping when I am hungry. I keep 100 calorie packets of nuts in my purse for such times. I also stop in and drink a hot herbal tea while shopping.

Have a great new day today. You can do it.

    Amen to that. Happened to me last week. BAD idea, going hungry. Takes a day like that to remind us how bad. My stomach doesn't like overindulgence any more.
