Off of The Wagon and Onto The Horse

wagon-ride

I’ve ridden the wagon long enough. Follow me.

I am a “ride high on life” kind of girl,
who loves all of the chocolate in the world.

And just like I learned several years prior
my beloved chocolate doesn’t love me anymore.

It tastes so good but makes me pretty sick.
Oy and oh boy! I’m chocolate allergic.

Thank God this doesn’t extend into my taste in men.
I am to my core a true chocolate-man fan.

The horse is a challenge and I like it.

Other than that —  I am back with the diet & fitness band.
I’m off the candy wagon and onto the horse again.

Walking is important, it’s the opposite of run.
I’m engaged in both of activities  under the hot summer sun.

Each is free and I need it.
Leisure keeps calling – but I can’t heed it.

The agile moves that I am making in my life
would be best be executed at a “fitter” size.

So off to the journey – I do oblige. Are you down to ride? God bless us.
We’ve the capacity to change our reality – let us start with lettuce:

love-my-salad_lettuce-lime

 

Ingredients:

1 head of lettuce
2 cups of ice cubes
juice of 1 lemon
2-3 tbsp of honey

Per my doctor, I am consuming 2 of these (or similar) a day
over the course of 6-weeks to help facilitate excess fat away.

I will also consume one solid meal.
One that’s well-thought-out for detox & heal.

My health is A-Okay but my tummy isn’t quite so fit,
in fact, I can tell from a side profile that I eat biscuits. 😛

great-biscuits.jpgI picked biscuits up when I put donuts down.
Texas wears the ‘tastiest donut’ crown.

I am letting go of all packaged processed foods.
Chocolate, biscuits and donuts — will no longer do.

Not anymore.
Child please, I’m about this lettuce score.

I don’t really consider my targeted choice to be a diet.
Life is full of game and getting fit (to me) is a riot!

It’s all in your perception and how you look at a thing and approach to right it.
Me? I’m re-molding self and reviving my health; for opportunity, I am excited.

So much so, that I had to write it. Life is so much fun!
I’m Qui
Care to walk with me to the park for a run? Last one to the swing
is the unfit one!

Let it be not me nor you.
Care to sip some lettuce juice?

Give me your foot (o’ fit aspirer) and I will hoist you up onto the horse.
It doesn’t taste great but fitness can’t wait. I have duly made a choice.

See you on the weigh-in scales in a minute.
Challenged @ fitness? Perceive: “watch me win it!”

Meme & You: MESSAGE!

Good morning baby. What it do?
I want to spend the day talking about Meme & You.

I thought I’d open up with just a few
in GIF formation; an easy auto view.

And here I am – up early and duly working out.
Taking control of life is what it’s all about.

I don’t like to exercise as much as ‘a gym rat’ does
still I’m up every morning giving this elliptical machine love.

I just want to change my size, my frame, my look in the mirror.
As the dress size was on the rise, one thing became clearer:

take-control-life.jpgI was going to have to change.
I tried to talk myself out of it – I was insane.

Now that I’ve lost a few and understand weight manipulation
I’m off to winning the races in my food to calorie-burn relation.

I’m a member of MyFitnessPal and I wear a FitBit.
Look me up and let’s hook up if that’s your joint– your ‘ish.
I love this!

.

And so sometimes I use Meme‘s to talk to myself.
I gravitate towards those that yield wisdom used to achieve wealth.

I stay away from silly messages, though I’m down to share a comedic laugh.
But no memes are more important than those that encourage you to get up off of your ass.

Yeah, go on and laugh and then take control of that area you lack,
I’m Qui
Working it out and Oui! You know I’ve got your back!

I’m DOING IT too…. but WHY?

Qui Entertainment

I’m doing it because I DESERVE IT! I deserve good health.
I work the elliptical machine as if doing so could equate to wealth.

I’m down 30 pounds.
A Black woman – a little less round.

I’m happy in my soul
and good health for me is far valuable than gold.

Then there are THESE BLACK WOMEN! Behold:

Me? I’m not on the billboards, I’m just getting started.
I opted for GOOD HEALTH to decrease the likely hood of ‘life thwarted.’

My lifestyle change has turned my visual clock (the way that I look) back a decade or more.
I’m Qui
and to FITNESS I say “Oui!” Eating clean is my thing and I stay elliptical sore!
Good Health is the ultimate score!

Mayhem’less Monday

In Communication, fitness, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement, weightloss on November 9, 2015 at 9:29 am

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:

To read more about it – Click HERE or on the pic,
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,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee. I bid you well on this Mayhem’less Monday.
