Oh my.

Hello Lovely Readers,

It’s been awhile since I posted and I promise there is reason for this.

So I’ve got the blues, I’m PMSing, and I’m on a very strict Detox. Como?


You see, Bob lost his job about a week and a half ago. I’ve alluded to this but not come out and said it before, but we moved in together.

I didn’t want to say it directly until I told my Mother who was none too happy to hear her baby girl was cohabitating. Right after I told her about two days later Bob was let go of his job without any notice.

It’s been really hard for me because I was so excited for us to start this new chapter in our life and build a home and our future together. I feel everything has been put on hold, because it has. I feel so crushed and so helpless and wish I could do more. I like to blog about happy things, but this is real life and it’s been years since I was this anxious and scared. I just wish I could know when this would be over and he would get a new job. His old job wasn’t one that was good for him, he would work 11 hour days without a lunch and left tired and unappreciated. He’s brilliant and full of so many creative and innovative ideas, I know it’s just a matter of time until this remedies.


In the mean time we’ve decided to try to make lemonade from lemons and do The Clean Program. This is my 3rd bout of it and I absolutely love it. Read more about it in this old post. We’re on day 6 of this 21 day detox and it’s both rewarding and tough. Weekends are the hardest but we’ve both dropped weight, I’m so far down 3 lbs and Bob is down 8.  When it comes to goal weight I don’t like to use a celebrity but instead my own picture from days of yore.

Thoughts and prayers would be much appreciated during this chaotic time in our lives.


  1. UGhh, I'm so sorry to hear about your troubles girl. I've been thinking a lot about you, and I know the tides will turn for you and Bob very soon.

    Stay positive!

    Good luck on your detox, I'm going to go back and read your old post about it. I'm trying to do a similar strict diet (mine is only 12 days) but it's no small feat. Hopefully by the time we're off our detox's we can get a drink and actually ENJOY it!


  2. My prayers are going out to you.
