My Idiocy, or perhaps it's LOA...

As some of you are aware, I've been on a low carb. diet for the past three weeks. It's been great, I'm eating so much better than I was before starting this diet. My moods have stabilised with my blood sugar, and I've lost about 5.3kg...

On Saturday night though, I was experiencing unusually strong chocolate cravings which I could do nothing to stave off. So, by Sunday morning I decided it would be better to have a "day off" the diet rather than pushing it, and falling off the wagon completely.

For Sunday I ate basically what I used to eat; Maccas, Gloria Jean hot chocolate, choc fudge bar confectionary... Had Tacos for dinner. Even throughout the day, I felt a craving for a nice salad - a new experience for me. That said, I was committed to making the most of this day off... So, despite feeling satisfied by midafternoon, I kept indulging into the evening. By midnight, I wasn't feeling very well at all. I spent the next couple of hours talking to God on the porcelain phone...

NOT NICE, PEOPLE!!!

Didn't feel any relief after vomiting either, so slept poorly for the rest of the night as well.

Funny thing is, just a few weeks ago, just as I started the low carb. diet, I had found myself focusing on the thought that I want to crave foods that serve my body, and I want my body to reject foods that don't serve it... Well, just goes to show, be CAREFUL how you word your manifestations!

I have the best news for you - look in the hot drinks section of the supermarket and find a product called 'High Lites', it's in a purple hourglass jar. It has no sugar and is sweet and delicious. No milk, just add water.

Just googled it, is it that myoplex brand stuff for body builders? So, what do you know about it - have you used it???
Sif said…
LOL, I was thinking I need to get you on msn...
casso said…
*snort* no, no, just a brand of hot chocolate without sugar by Cadbury. :o) Believe me, no need to get body building stuff into this body! Will email you my msn details.

Yucko. Hey Sif did you know out of interest GJ's is owned by and affliated with members of Hillsong church, the full on Christian fundy mob? There's a reason to boycott them hehee. I've tried that drink casso suggested, but I prefer Jarrah Chai chocolatte mmmmmm :D
Sif said…
LOL, yes, I had heard about GJ and Hillsong... My cousins go to Hillsong whenever they're in Sydney... Those "fundy" would really being into LOA, actually, but in a "faith in God" kind of way - i.e. they have a reputation for being "prosperity gospel" type (your faith in God with be rewarded tenfold, in both earthly and heavenly riches)...

Your body sounds extremely clever :P.

Oh wow, yeah I dunno how I feel about that whole Xtian way of looking at the LOA..I don't think it's very LOA to place your faith in a higher power; I mean LOA is supposed to be about the individual manifesting their own desires, no third party needed! But on the other hand, I respect anyone who believes in it rather than knocking it and saying it's utter crap. So hmmmm. In two minds about the GJ thing too-on one hand, I want to boycott them because I'm so against money based Xtianity, and preaching and evangelism in any form-on the other, they do apparently help homeless and abused women through their mercy ministries charity. What a conundrum. LOL
Sif said…
Ah, it's universal law, Jayne, balance, symmetry, nobody is all bad - just like nobody is all good...
HipbubbyMama said…
no no..not bad.. But still IMO placing your faith in an intermediary is NOT utilising the LOA the way the law is intended :)

Oh just occurred to me you probably mean the Hillsong charity v evangelism thing rather than the LOA aspect. Yeah..polarity hehe

12 Things Happy People Do Differently - a self-reflection...

A few days ago a Facebook friend posted the above poster on her wall. I believe she got these points from this blog which she enjoys reading, and the bloggers on the Marc and Angel Hack Life blog derived their discussion of these points from this book, available on Amazon - you're welcome! I have to admit, I haven't read the blog or the book I've just mentioned but wanted my readers to have access to the sources of the poster for their own reflective purposes.
The New Year will be upon us in but a few days and I thought this a great opportunity to do a little personal assessment on how I'm playing the happy game. I'm often not very happy at all - I don't need to be happy all the time, let me just say that up front - I personally believe that life is a balancing act and those who seek euphoria often will also often feel desolation because in all things there must be balance. The great riches of the few on this planet come at the personal cost of the many as is …

The symbolism of elephants...

Just recently I've been seeing and noticing elephants everywhere!

A few weeks ago I saw the Samsung Elephant Ad, and watching that led me to watching a video with an elephant painting (seriously, you have to watch it to believe it!).

Then last night the boys told me they were having a free dress day at school to raise money for 'Mali the Elephant' - who turned out to be a paper maché statue which the children will paint and then show around the council before it comes back to the school to stand outside the performing arts room.

Then this morning I followed a link from Twitter to Toushka Lee's blog and read this post about an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka.

This morning the Grumpy Old Man did another driving test and unfortunately didn't pass. We've booked his next test and are looking forward to that now. About ten minutes before he walked in the door I saw this poster on Facebook...


At the time, I didn't know if the Grumpy Old Man had been successful or …

Do you have low self-esteem?

I don't.

I used to think I did, but having met several people who really do have low self-esteem, I've now come to realise I actually have low confidence (and note I don't say low self-confidence, but more on that later), and that is a different breed of animal all together.

I was having a chat with a friend the other day about people who constantly put themselves down. If you are a participant in social media you might be aware of this kind of person. Everyone is smarter than them, prettier than them, more motivated, better organised, or has greater talent than them. It goes further, some of these people are not at all opposed to running themselves down to others with comments like, 'I'm so fat' (and not in a proud, fat acceptance way, but in a negative, self-loathing kind of way), or 'I'm stupid' or 'I'm ugly'.

Some people are just fishing for compliments, of course, but the ones who persist; the ones who simply cannot take a complimen…
