A week ago, I was down and out and almost dead with strep throat (s/o to Gigi for taking me to the Urgent Care), it was beyond rough. I could barely move my body, and let's not even talk about swallowing... *tears* Thank God for healing, I'm glad it's over and I am feeling much better. The day before I knew I was going to be dying, I'd decided to do this GM's Diet . I didn't let a little strep throat stop me though! I actually think it made the 1st day much easier, what was I trying to eat with a super sore throat anyway? NOTHING! I went ahead and carried out the cleanse as planned and it is exactly a week later, I did it! I am proud to announce I am 8 lbs lighter. It was not an easy task, there are moments when I wanted to throw the cleanse out the window! Let's say Day 3, Dinner at Carmine's.... but I just kept reminding myself that "only the strong survive." And I am definitely among the strong. Also, while I was dying (exaggerated for dramatic effect), I watched this documentary called Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, its about a guy who was fat and sick and... lol.

BYOB! I have began reading the book club choice for this month, The Five Languages of Apology by Dr. Gary Chapman. He is the same author of The Five Love Languages, I'm sure I've discussed that book in another blog. But they are both life changers, eye openers, good jump starts to enhancing all relationships and I highly recommend them both. Check it out! (literally) if you don't want to invest in the cost of the book, you can/should pick it up from your local library. Knowledge is POWER! Apologize or Die (trying)!!! READ or Die (trying)!!!

It is going to be legen (wait for it)... DARY! I am siked, amped, hyphy! lol (don't judge me). I seriously can not wait! I have since gotten my niece and daughter to read the book. We are gonna be up in there DEEP! It isn't too late for any of you to be apart of this monumental occasion, there's still time for you too to get caught up in the thrills of The Hunger Games. :) Your choice! Let me get on this ticket purchase before I'm left standing in the cold... "may the odds be ever in your favor." Survive or Die (trying)!!! Dang, I'm hyped!!
