Dizzy Angel

I am so so so tired right now- but my body is so out of whack that I cannot sleep.  Where do I begin?  I have been HORRIBLE to my body the last few days.  Seriously HORRIBLE.  I know I shouldn't have been, but it happens.  I've just been playing with my friends so hard that I haven't properly taken care of myself.  Friday night I went to an Angel's game with some of my friends, and then Saturday night we went dancing.  Well, Friday night we decided to take a girls trip to Vegas which meant that a serious rampage would have to ensue immediately following this decision, so at the Angel's game we pigged out- that being the "last night" before the rampage began.  Ha.  Saturday I worked out pretty hard (because of my new rampage) so I drank a Rockstar Sat night at 11pm because we were going dancing and i needed "energy".  MISTAKE.  Couldn't go to sleep until 5:30 am.  That crap is so bad for your body.  Seriously- don't ever drink it- it's liquid meth I think.  Well, today I had a straight hangover (no alcohol was involved last night), I was NOT hungry, but in true hangover fashion, proceeded to eat large quantities of food in attempts to give my body something normal.  Tonight I proceeded to go to a dessert party where several of my other friends and I started doing this "sampling" of all of the desserts, and 2 hours later i am so full of sugar that it's 12:02 am and my neck is killing me and I cannot go to sleep.  I feel so jacked up.

The good news is, I've been laying here in bed plotting my plan for the new rampage as it continues tomorrow.  I realized as I'm planning, that basically my workouts for the month of July were pretty horrible.  I ran a lot a lot, but I didn't do anything else and I ate horribly, so I really didn't accomplish much.  This month I am going to step it up and add weights back in, and possibly more yoga too.  I'm also seriously considering sugar restriction.  I know it's tough, but seriously my body needs a detox or something right now.  I've had several friends tell me some of the benefits they are getting from yoga and I know when I was doing hot yoga more consistently before, my body was in better shape to run.  So I'm hoping to make yoga a part of my routine at least 3 days a week this month.  I feel like my goals are pretty lofty right now though.  But then again, I have a lot of work to do before this Vegas trip I'm going on.  AND I just want to feel normal again.  I remember when I didn't feel 85 years old, and I wasn't hobbling around in pain all the time.

In other news, again, I was laying in my bed trying to make myself go to sleep, and I was also thinking back over my weekend and my friends, and I just want to mention that I am so incredibly happy right now.  I have the best friends in the whole world.  3 of my closest and dearest girlfriends and I spent the whole weekend together and I just prayed tonight a little prayer of gratitude for such amazing girlfriends in my life that love me, support me, and keep me laughing and smiling at all times.  Here is a cute picture of 3 of my best girlfriends and I at the Angel's game on Friday night.  I have a few other close girlfriends that I love too, but these three are special to me because they are the ones I'm with the most- as they are all single and live right here in CA with me.  We had so much fun this whole weekend and I seriously cannot stop raving about how much I love these girls:

They just understand me.  I love my social life right now- I am out meeting people almost every night and laughing hysterically with these girls at all times and I just love love love my friends and am so thankful for them and the joy they bring in my life.  We seriously do not stop laughing, and I love it so much.  Here are just a few more fun ones from this same night (I can't help it!):

My life right now is amazing.  I'm so grateful.  And I think things are only going to get better from here!!!!

xoxoxoxo my loves!!



  1. You definitely appear to have a really great life Diz, I'm so glad that you know it and that you're grateful. Even though I love my life, you have a lot to be envious about... xo

  2. Thanks for being such an inspiration! I've nominated you for an award. You can redeem it by going to my blog!


  3. Hey Diz! I just have to tell you that today is Day 26 without sugar for me. I came to the realization that I am a total addict! I HAD to get it out of my system, or detox or whatever you want to call it, and it has been amazing. My second day was hard but seriously I don't even want it anymore. I feel free!

    Whatever you want, you can get! You are a strong woman!

  4. You are so right about detoxing from sugar! I think that's the secret to taming the Ugly Hunger Monster - killing him by depriving him of sugar!

    You look so happy with your friends! It's wonderful that you have such close friends to share the fun with. be young and single again. And living in CA! Enjoy every moment!

  5. Oh Diz, the idea of going without sugar... hmmm, it hit me straight in the *I-know-I-need-to-do-this* button. Don't know if I'm that courageous, but I agree with Brynn and Genie that it might be the secret to killing my Food Frenzy Monster.

    On another note, it's so good to hear you be so grateful about your fabulous life and friends. You deserve it all. Enjoy (*_*)
