I hate dieting.

I think dieting has to be the worst thing on earth. Like forreal.  WHY DOES FOOD MAKE YOU FAT???  I wish all salads tasted like greasy cheesy pizza.  I wish broccoli tasted like chocolate ice cream. I wish Dr. Depper had ZERO calories.

My point is, why do ALL things delicious make you look like a big fat cow?!??!?!  It's so not fair.

Well if anyone knows me, you know I don't look like Jennifer Lopez...more like her fat ass cousin. NO wait, she's Puerto Rican. I'm Mexican. And no it's not all the same! ANYWAY, my point is that if I were on Match.com, I would have to pick the "fat ass" box on the profile.   I have struggled with my weight since I was young. I was NEVER skinny...ever.  But as I look back at old pictures I think "damn, I was skinny!"  How's that for irony. 

So to help me with my weight loss journey, I made a bet with a co-worker.  Money is a great incentive!!!  And not to mention bragging rights!!  So we made a bet that whomever lost more weight by August 25 would win.  The loser pays the winner $2 for every pound lost.  I am proud to announce that I have lost 6 lbs.  I know in the grand scheme of things that's not worth writing a blog post about BUT it's progress and I'm proud!!!!

I've been using an App on my phone that is helping me track my calories. It's pretty nifty.  It helps me to decide what I can and should NOT be eating.  Do you know that the big breakfast from McDonald's has 1150 calories!?!??!?!?!  My daily ration is 1800. That is pretty damn scary.  But again, it's SO DAMN GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   I can even have a Dr. Pepper if I want...but I can't have anything else good to eat. But it's a nice trade off and it keeps me sort of in line.

I am not expecting a miracle in weight loss here. I know myself and will fall off the wagon and back on a few times before it's over but it's a start right?!?!?!

Check in on me later. Maybe the next time you see a picture of me, I WILL look like J-Lo! :D

I hate people. Not YOU but some...

On Monday I went to the grocery store to get a few things.  It was a quick trip that only cost me $50. Impressive huh?  I checked out like normal, put up my things, got Sofia situated in her car seat and we left.

When I got home, I went to get my purse and it wasn't where I normally put it. I thought it was odd so I got out and went to get it from the back.  That's the only other logical place I would have placed it.  When I didn't find it there, my entire body went warm with fear.  You know that feeling where you don't know whether you want to cry or scream or cry?  Well that's exactly how I felt.  It was awful.

After I realized my purse was not in my car, I raced back to the grocery store (that was 5 minutes away) and went back to where I was parked.  I figured I left my purse in the cart that I was using.  I was even a good American and put the cart in those parking spaces made specifically for carts. When I passed up the place I left the cart and saw that it was empty, my heart sank.  I went inside and asked if anyone turned in a purse. Nothing.  I searched the carts that were put up. Nothing.

I felt so defeated and so mad at the same time!!!!  I went home and told Boogie and busted into tears.  He had just bought that purse for me in February AND the matching wallet that was inside.  And for the record, Boogie is the cheapest person on earth and the fact that he spent more than $20 on a purse and wallet was/is a big deal!  I thought he was going to be super pissed but I'm glad he wasn't.  Tears usually help men be nicer...or at least not be a total jack-ass! :)

I went back to the store a second time and looked again and asked more people but my purse was gone.  After I had time to process everything, I realized that I did in fact put my purse in the back with the groceries.  When I went to put the cart in its place, I left the lift gate open. I can only assume that someone snatched it out of there as my back was turned.

And I KNOW...all the Datelines and 20/20 specials show us how easy it is for people to steal your things. And I've watched those and taken notes and thought to myself "how can people be so dumb?"  Well...I'm now in that list of "dumb people".  I wonder if Dateline will run a story on me?

And for all you women out there, you know that our purses are our entire lives!  Everything was in there!!! My bank cards, a check book, MY BRAND NEW PASSPORT, MY PHONE!!!  I could go on and on...you get the picture.  I was so sad the next day when I literally had nothing to take with me but my keys. HOW DEPRESSING!!!!!!!

BUT...things could have been a lot worse.  Whomever took my purse could have accosted me to try to get it and I'm so thankful and blessed that didn't happen.  AND I really hope and pray that whoever took it needed those things more than me.  That's how I sleep at night. BUT I also believe in Kharma...and we all know she's a bitch!

Does this mean I'm cool?

It's finally happened.  I went to the dark side.  I now own an Apple product.  What is this world coming to?  And more importantly..does this make me cool?

I am now the proud owner of the iPhone 4s...the white one. I figured since my name means White...I should pay homage.  Thank god my name doesn't mean neon green!

I will admit when I ordered it I was sort of kinda really excited.  Oh, who am I kidding? I was jumping up and down with joy. Not literally though. That would take too much work!  I ordered the phone on Monday and it was here on Wednesday.  Thank you Jesus for over-night shipping!!

When we finally got it to work, I was so excited! And it's amazing how much people notice because almost everyone that came in my office said "You got a new phone?"  I guess people are more nosey than they thought! :)

I am like a 5 year old and cannot put this phone down.  I keep looking for apps to add to it.  I keep asking Siri to tell me a joke and she won't. Rude.  She's much nicer to John Malkovich in that commercial. Bitch.  But don't tell her I said that because she sets my alarm!

I know in the next couple of weeks and months I will get to know my iPhone better. For all of you seasoned iPhone owners, give me some tips!!!! I'm brand new to this party.

This is what Whitey looks like. :)
