generally i loathe the word "diet" because DIE is in DIET and i dont want to die. haha no, but really, to me diet implies deprivation, starvation, cravings comparable to those from which heroin addicts suffer, and insanity. well, im looking forward to this one cause i can't stand the STS anymore! STS being spare tire syndrome, say that to a guy and wait for the most horrifying expression! haha i signed up for the biggest loser at work but they aren't starting for another 2 weeks; i started 2 days ago, i can't wait any longer. seriously, i lost 5 pounds yesterday; i'm not kidding. so this is my diet plan:

  • 7 days. model detox diet
  • following detox. french woman diet
  • take supplements
    • cayenne pepper pills
    • B12

some of my lifelong goals. i recognize these may sound silly to many of you just because they arent goals like: hit the lottery, become a stepford wife, marry rich man, become a trillionaire, own a big stupid fancy house complete with maids and nanny, and travel to stupid popular places.

  • own diner
    • decorate said diner in my own design
    • diner will be coffee house, gallery space, and have stage for shows
  • seamstress
    • because its so old school
    • produce my creations of clothing, handbags, jewelery etc.
    • hopefully (fingers crossed) make living of this
  • own salvage yard
