Back on the.. Back in the..

back in the saddle.. back on the bike.. whatever it’s called… I’m BACK BITCHES!!  It’s a great day today.. after taking some time off for personal reasons, I am back full steam ahead to get my business OFF THE GROUND!!  www.ieskinnywrap.com is here to stay!  I have 3 parties coming up starting TONIGHT!  I am soo excited to get back to helping people achieve their goals for better health, weight loss, whatever their desire.  Being in the position to do so, is such an amazing feeling.  Y’all already know I’ve lost 30+ lbs doing this system.  I’ve plateau’d lately (aka been lazy and don’t care about anything) and based on the new “Ultimate Makeover” and protein shakes and wraps etc, I am DETERMINED to lose another 15-20 lbs. Check out the video and see for yourself!!  Go to http://www.ieskinnywrap.com and click on ULTIMATE MAKEOVER.. and hit play!  🙂   I never thought I’d lose the 30 I already did, considering I refused to give up my beer, and I hate to “work out”. But, it REALLY REALLY works.. So, with a little desire, I can do it again.  Once I lose that, and maintain, I will be sooo ready for summer, and back into a teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini!  
Tonight’s party will be awesome, a couple of the gals have already been to a wrap party, so they got a LOT of their friends together.. $ CHA CHING!$  Then, I partnered up with an upscale salon here, to do a “Valentine’s Day” slim down, get purty package… Do a wrap and get your hair did to fit into that little black dress and look super hot for Valentine’s Day..  Lot’s of girls already have appointments for that too!  (About 18 so far!)  Then off to Los Angeles for another shin dig.  I am praying/crossing fingers whatever it takes to FINALLY get to a point where I can QUIT MY DAY JOB!!  Before I took a break I was making pretty decent money and I know if I had stuck with it, I could have quit by now..  Live and Learn.  
Weight loss, tightened skin, healthy from the inside.. BEST way to start the year for me.  Hopefully, change enough lives, that I can do this FULL time and be SUPERMOM for Dano..  Soo excited.. What a GREAT DAY!   Love to all of you!


You too can make these changes!! 🙂 








Is it just me..

I dunno if it’s a “chick thing”, or what, but seriously, for NO REASON I am in “one of those moods”.. I know I’ve been here before, but this time, I don’t know if I’m depressed, or upset or blah or what.  I’m tired of being thrown under the bus (work related), repeatedly no less, I’m tired of making people a priority when no one does that for me (everyone in general)..  No I don’t do it to get something in return but Christ… I exist too.  I need “help” sometimes too.  I want friends too..  For reals, this is NOT a pity party.. just venting to get it off my chest I think so maybe I’ll feel better..  Dano is making me I~N~S~A~N~E lately.  Her constant “I forgot my homework at school” bullshit is making me go gray like 100x faster than usual.  And, I’m SURE I’m losing my hair too now.  I told her last night, (not very prettily I might add) that I’m done, and at court next month I’m giving the other parental figure joint custody back.  I told her I can’t do it anymore. I go out of my way for her, do everything I can for her, and no matter WHAT I say, it means NOTHING to her.  Ya ya she’s almost 12 and is “at that age” where she doesn’t give two shits about what I say blah blah yadda yadda.  I don’t care.  I am the MOM and if you don’t want to listen to me, and you think it’s bad here.. good, GO STAY WITH HIM.. you will PRAY to whoever to get you out of that.. AGAIN.  So, after I let her have it, (on the drive home when I picked her up from “his” house), she immediately walked into the house, went straight to the shower, then got her pj’s on, made both our lunches (samwiches) for today, got all her school work ready (backpack loaded up) and laid out her school clothes.  All without me saying a word.  Well, besides all the “words” I’d used on the way home.  Maybe it did “click”… we’ll see.  I’ll have a better idea if she conveniently forgets her homework again today…  


side note:  I think I use “”””” (quotes) too much.. reminds me of Joey on Friends mis using “air quotes”.. LMAO!


Ok, so yes.. I’m having a hard day..  Am I a horrible mom for telling her what I did about custody? I mean, really, how much am I do put up with?? I can ground her, but that really does nothing because she’d rather be spending her time doing things with me (Weird child, I know)… suggestions?? THOUGHTS?

She’s Back..

So Monday night I took Fiona to the shop to see about that transmission thing.. Turns out there was a recall.. a couple to be exact..  and I just got the phone call, she’s DONE!! They also fixed the couple door dings that I hated to look at.. woot!  I shit you not, the Dodge Avenger (aka Dodger) is THE most retarded car ever.  Dano and I both hated it.  The ONLY saving grace or cool thing about “Dodger” was the lights INSIDE the car (like when you opened the doors) were that they are LED lights.. yup. THAT is it.  Stupid car. Gas guzzler.  I can’t wait to go get Fi back.. I missed her sooooo much.. 🙂  

Don’t you..

HATE it when all the good intentions are for naught!?  Ugh.. This year STARTED off better than I’d hoped.. (notice I didn’t say great.. haha)  So I got a new car since Bessie was about to kick the bucket..  So these “dummy” lights (apparently for chicks that don’t seem to know shit about cars.. ) the Downhill Control assist, and the Electronic Stability Control came on while I was driving “Fiona”. (Remember, Dano said the shadow looked like an ogre.. ergo, shrek, or FIONA haha) I was at lunch, coming back from getting me some chili fries at der weiner… (LOVE their chili!!) Once I returned to work, I couldn’t move the shifter into PARK.  It wouldn’t go past neutral.. oh realllly.  Of course, if said car is not in park, you can’t turn it off, or retrieve keys… FUN!!  I found a little chingas next to the shifter, stuck the nail file in there to open it, and pushed down this little lever and then it went into Park.  Ok, so crisis averted.  
HOWEVER.. did a little googling on said vehicle.  Seems 2 others with this issue (identical I might add) had a brake interlock safety switch go bad and the other the drive shaft went bad..  ARE YOU KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW!?!? I thought since it was used (2011 with 20K miles) the bugs would be “worked out” already..  Le Sigh.  Now I’m cranky.  Granted, I did buy the extended warranty and stuff, but I JUST GOT THE DAMN THING! Ggrrr  Just had to vent.. this just pisses me off. So much for THAT being a good start..  OOH.. and then Dano.. and her grades.. SMDH When will I win THAT war?  

New Beginnings..

I hope to have A LOT of new beginnings this year.. I changed my name.. that was HUGE and a big GOOD change.. 🙂  On Jan 1st I went out and bought me and the kid a new car.  “Bessie”, my 04 Tahoe was at 99,991 and I feared wouldn’t last much longer.. so this year, we are starting out with a new car.  It’s a car we can afford, and with the gas I was putting in the 11mpg tahoe, it pays for the car.  🙂  VERY happy about that… Actually, I’ll be SAVING $$!  We deserve it.  She thinks the shadow of it looks like “Shrek”.. so we named the car “Fiona”.. Fi for short, since it IS a girl car.. 😉   The house we are renting, the owners LOVE us so much, they asked if we wanted to BUY the house!  I love everything about it.  More yard than house.. I spend more time outside anyway.  A pool..  3 br 2 bath.. it’s just perfect.  I think in a few months I will look into doing that.  Having full custody of Dano now for going on 8 months has been awesome.. we are going to do so much together this year.. little road trips and just being together.  Hopefully my job will go back to full time in the first qtr, but in the meantime, I am going to start doing everything I can to get my business www.ieskinnywrap.com up to where it should be.  I really would like to quit my job and do my business full time, helping others to become the healthy person they want to be. 🙂  Anyway, I am happy, and content right now. Sure, I could win the lotto and be SUPER happy, but I keep playing.. HAHA  Anyway, I hope ALL of you have many new and exciting beginnings this year as well.  Together we can make it happen.  
Cheers n beers y’all!


Photo shoot..

Real quick… just wanted to post a pic of my Lovey from her photoshoot..  She looks beautiful.. ya I know.. I am biased, but really she’s kinda pretty.. 😉  A LOT happened over the new year holiday, so I will get back a little later with an update…   Hope everyone had a SAFE New Years and is ready to kick some ass this year!   

Here is my Dano..
