Cleaning Up

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement, weightloss on January 27, 2017 at 3:53 am

cleaning-mop-mickeyOkay, the days are coming and going fast
I’m always in search of something “to last.”

Perhaps a lovely moment I don’t want to pass
I want to #DoIT slow, #EatClean and #BurnFat.

So I’m doing that! Today is (again) day one.
Holiday eating was good, the endless cookies were fun.

But this arse of mine – in width needs to run.
The junk food and I, again have reached DONE.

We all have a relationship with food and it is a give and take.
You can have it deep fried, freeze dried, pan seared or baked.

Pan seared and baked are better options as Spring is set to arrive.
So knowing there’ll be more of my skin showing I’ll do this right.

No fat, no sugar and absolutely no carbs.
My thoughts: focused. My help from the Lord.

Good health is a detoxers reward.
Eating clean isn’t easy – nor is it too hard.

In 2014 I dropped 30 pounds from just dropping fast food.
I’ve enjoyed a drive thru or two since then and find myself in the mood

To detox again, though I’ve gained nothing on the lost 30.
I’m eating clean again because Oct-Dec doc’d me eating dirty.

Today is Day 1. of my 2017 clean up.
Care to join me in the detox cut?

Care to shape up your gut and your butt?
Go clean, no candy, cakes or ice cream – Give it up!

Yep, #ScrewIt, let’s do it. Let’s polish up for Spring with no rut,
I’m Qui
Looking for a finer she – I’m committed to Cleaning Up.

Hand me that lettuce….

Usher yourself into it.

News Peruse

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement on January 4, 2016 at 4:54 am

monique-pressley-huffingtonpost-liveWhen it comes to the NEWS that we love to PERUSE – just how much does it cost thee?
First out of the gate, a staple headline page: The accusations on Mr. Cosby.

When women began to come out of every piece of woodwork and out from under every rock
saying Mr. Cosby tried to ‘get all up in their pudding’ – I have to admit, I was shocked.

Why would the JELLO man do that? How much gellin’ can there be?
Or is this another societal pitch to change the good of a mans history?

I don’t mean to sound dismissive, I don’t mean to sound femme insensitive;
but I remember what they said about Michael Jackson and the things they said he did.

Turns out we can’t find one former molested kid with a legal leg to stand up and say
that MJ molested them in that day. Back then ‘twas the trend for the yield of a big payday.

And today many women have come forth to say Mr. Cosby has done the same.
If the man is guilty – charge him in court, tho I’m wary of those seeking fame.

If we fail to heed history it will keep happening to us.
MJ was accused of molestation until his legacy was crushed.

O.J. Simpson is fighting the same. Legacy death is riding his coat tail persistently trying to befriendglen-rogers-killed-nicole-simpson

another black male who wore fame for a spell, only to face a lethal rumored end.

Now back to the begin – I am not saying that Mr. Cosby is innocent. I’m still gathering facts – God bless me.
But I am saying that my judgment is wide open to Defense Atty. Monique Pressley.

She makes a great case, but then again, this ain’t court,
I do believe INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY should remain the peoples sport.

The Affluent teen was given “such grace” and this is – after he mowed down four lives, while driving drunk.
Bill Cosby put in years that should leverage the fears of society wanting to toss his contributions in the trash dump.

After all the Affluent teen put in nothing to help any type of culture.
Still history is showing up to degrade and cut off another good legacy brother.

King Solomon won’t ever live down having several wives of different races…
We’ll never get over black guys reigning in ‘white guy places’.

waka-flocka-believes-bill-cosbyPresident Obama only has one wife and he has been with her for many years.
Infidelity and molestation isn’t his accuse. The blackness of his skin, alone – raises fears.

In the world, race relations have a wickedly short fuse.
I mean not to light a single wick in this News Peruse.

But if we don’t start looking at things differently we lose.
Folks defaming folks is historically something folks like to do.

Don’t join that crew.
There in the balance is the legacy of you.

Don’t jump on to facts — that you haven’t proved.
Don’t jump on and it be proven wrong. Then you look like the fool.

Monique Pressley has something to say. Attorney Pressley is fact reliant.
I do believe I’ll wait for her day in court when she can properly defend her client.

Now all is not lost and not all News Perused is sad,
tell me when you look at this picture, it doesn’t make you laugh:

Those Jacksons, those Jacksons, they can not be stopped
and for “most hairdo’s at once” – Jermaine can’t be topped.

My goodness, I laughed at this when I read the caption.
I noticed his hairline of paint — good Lord what happened?

Anywho, no one is defaming Jermaine Jackson – his stylist has taken great care
to do whatever it is he has requested them to do with his multi-styled hair.

In fame, style and love — apparently ALL IS FAIR.
If you need a good laugh today, come back and look at Jermaine’s hair. 😀

Last but not least, it’s a new year and with that comes new stuff,
I’m still eating clean and working on getting buff.

I’m still pulling for you if you want to change too,

Mayhem’less Monday

super-hero-womenAnd so all of the weekend long
I remained strong & in my dome.

I watched a little TV & went out a short bit.
I ate so caloric little – I thought I’d have a fit.

Yeah I’m on a health kick but dare I say
I couldn’t even eat my lettuce because of TMJ.

I do say — but that has gone away
and your girl Qui is a skinnier she on this health kick sway.

I’m happy, I’m healthy and out looking for MORE good
So I perused for bright spots via the Internet hood.

And I’m glad that I did – peep what i’ve found –
There’s some nourishing GOOD going on in the Flagstaff town:

This is positive proof of NAU’s Project: GIVE.

There’s so much life to live – someone didn’t wake up today
So as hard as you remember to work, please don’t forget your play.

But when it comes to politics – they ain’t playing & it ain’t funny.
Each candidate is on the hustle for top billing, power & money.

Sister Carly Fiorina, Im gonna have to have your back.
Your intelligence more than makes-up-for what your smile may lack.

How dare folks stack like that on your visual reflection???
The hair of Trump? Christies fat rump? I see “uglier” connections.

Your intellect is beautiful and I want to credit you
for the connecting response you gave to Joy on The View.
Ooo!
Yay YOU!

Kick ass & vie swiftly for the head of the class.carly-fiorina
Waters mid-way; how do you see your glass?

Go for it!
You’ve got the GOODS to score it!

I may not share her political views but forget not that WE ARE SISTERS.
You don’t see this topic of nonsense between the political misters.

Let’s get it together ladies if we are to have any kind of sister hood at all.
We love jumping “the new picked-on” – not realizing it’s OUR OWN historical FALL.

hillary-clinton-jimmy-kimmelI feel the same way about Hillary Clinton – why are women in a race to hate on her?
Do unto others as you’d have done unto you… suddenly YOUR OWN LIFE becomes a blur.

Choose not to stand by, respect and understand women? Then choose the same for you.
While women are insulting women, men are winning the race and bidding us adu.

I love a woman who won’t succumb to the poo.
We need more unity between me and you.
XO!!

I think Carly’s response strengthened her stance in dimension.
Also, I’ve got more good to divvy on my new ‘health kick system.’

So I’ve been EATING CLEAN since about June, but more seriously since September.
I have currently lost 15 pounds and am seeing a NEW ME I barely remember.

Qui-Nov2015a

I quit all processed foods, I don’t even use canned goods.
I let go of the chocolate candy and became a new girl in this hood.

I feel great and I’m happy. Being good to my body is my play,

Good morning to thee. I bid you well on this Mayhem’less Monday.
