Last week we got a new president but I didn't take time to write a blog about how I felt on that historic day. One reason I didn't write about it was because his inauguration fell on the same day as my anniversary, and of course MY life is a million times more important than the other historic event that day.
Ok fine, so maybe I'm NOT all that important, but truth be told I thought it would be nice to give everyone a break from the incredible Barack overload we experienced that day.… Continue

Before we get to today's fun fact I have something important I need to mention. It's been awhile since my IP address changed at home so please make sure you bookmark www.JenniferSuarez.com and NOT the IP address that shows up above (http://188.8.131.52:443/). If my IP changes that number up above will change and your bookmark won't bring you here.
It's a long nerdy story as to why this web site shows the IP instead of the domain name of JenniferSuarez.com. Short version is, my… Continue

I'm thinking about transferring a bunch of my old blogs from my old xanga page to this website so that everything can be found in one convenient location. If I do then you'd be able to read embarrassing gems like these:
Thursday, March 20, 2008 - Tight Body!
Well with my new diet I lost 19 lbs (so far hubby lost 39.5 and is still going. WOW!). With my new exercise program I'm able to run for about 4 miles, I do 200 sit ups a day (even I have to admit my tummy is starting… Continue

I may look all sweet and innocent but if you mess with me, I WILL make you pay for it.
Yesterday morning, Rudy and I were dropping Yuna off for school and in the parking lot there was a little red car, a pick up truck, and a large delivery truck. The delivery truck was parked on the right hand side of the lot in a parking spot and the other vehicles were in a line dropping off their children. The pick up truck was parked directly behind the delivery truck and based on that we figured… Continue

Today is a very important day in history. No I'm not talking about the day our first black president takes office, I'm talking about the day Rudy and I vowed to drive each other insane for the rest of our lives.
It was 3 years ago today that Rudy and I ran off and eloped to Las Vegas. Let me tell ya - eloping to Vegas - BEST WEDDING DECISION EVER. There was NO stress! It was just me and Rudy - the two most important people in the wedding. We didn't have to keep anyone happy but us.… Continue

Today's fun fact is about one of my favorite foods, bacon.
Did you know that bacon is one of the oldest meats in history? That's right! The Chinese were preserving and salting pork bellies around 1500 B.C.
Bacon is awesome and I wasn't all that surprised to find out it's been around for such a long time. Given the chance I could easily eat multiple strips of bacon at every meal. That is, if it didn't result in me weighing 1,000 lbs and having a heart attack by the age of… Continue

Four of us started detox together on January 5th. As you know detox lasts for 9 days. Today is day 10 and this is everyone's official weight loss numbers:

Me: I can't believe she can't fu*king read!!
Kayla: Fu*king read!
Me: *buries head in my hands* Did she just say what I think she said?
Rudy: Yup. Nice job Mom.
Thanks to me my 2 year old daughter said her first swear word yesterday. I wish I could say it could be worse, but fu*king is about as bad as it gets. In my pitiful defense I was ...

I'm almost done with detox and I'm feeling great! I peeked at the scale and I'm already down 5 lbs and Rudy is down 8 lbs! 2 more days left and I am SO READY to have a nice piece of salmon or maybe a cheeseburger (without the bun of course).
This time around I think detox was easier. I already knew which meals I enjoy and which meals are a waste of time. These past 7 days for dinners I've had; taco soup, portabella mushroom steaks, vegetarian chili, spinach casserole, tofu stir fry,… Continue

I came across today's fun fact while watching TV last night:
The best selling book in the world is the Bible. There are approximately 50 copies sold every minute! In an ironic twist, it's also the most stolen book in the world.
I love to read but I have to tell you I've never actually read the entire Bible. I tried once, but found it to be confusing and boring. There weren't any cool explosions or car chases, and there wasn't even one mutant alien or vampire! It doesn't… Continue

I'm busy today so I don't have time for a long post. Instead I'm going to share my all time FAVORITE detox recipe:
1 can each of rinsed - Red Beans, Black Beans, Pinto Beans, Great Northern Beans, and Kernel Corn.
1 package of extra firm tofu - Crumbled
1 can Rotel Tomatoes
1 can low sodium Diced Tomatoes
2 cans water
Season to taste with Chili powder, Cumin, Garlic powder and fresh cilantro. (I like it spicey so I… Continue

This is what Rudy and I are having for dinner tonight. It's one of my favorite detox recipes, but every time we go through the detox program I can never seem to find it without searching everywhere.
I'm hoping by posting it here I'll never lose it again. Added bonus - those of you also doing detox (Fat Smash Diet Phase 1) have a new recipe to try!
Spinach Casserole - aka Detox Lasagna
1 package frozen chopped… Continue

So I'm watching TV the other day and drug commercial comes on. No not the type that compares your brain on drugs to a fried egg, I'm talking about those OTHER drug commercials. You know the kind from the drug makers that are promoting a latest wonder drug?
Well the commercial I saw was for Abilify, a drug that is being used to treat bi-polar disorder. When one of these wonder drug commercials come on I always stop to listen because at the end of the commercial they list the side… Continue

I made it through the first day of detox, only 8 more days to go. It went pretty good. This is the 3rd time I've done the Fat Smash detox program and I've always had a ton of success. The rules are easy to follow and if you stick to it you learn to appreciate food again.
During the past few months I lost all of my appreciation for food. I could no longer tell the difference, in taste, between a green pepper and a yellow pepper. Heck, I wasn't even eating peppers unless they were… Continue

It's fun fact friday and since I can't think of a fun fact to share about myself today I'm going to tell you a fun fact about the human body:
Babies are born with 300 bones. However, by adulthood we only have 206 bones in our body.
Reason? As babies grow some of their bones fuse together forming one bone out of many.
Now... speaking of babies. Some of you noticed Mistletoe's "9 more months" comment on my last blog and have been wondering if I'm… Continue

Over the past 2-3 months my pants have slowly grown tighter. I step on the scale and I see my numbers go up. I am helpless when it comes to the holidays. It's the food. My god the delicious, wonderful, butter filled, sugar coated, fat saturated, food. I love it all. From the turkey on Thanksgiving to the shrimp on New Years Eve I am someone who always partakes in ALL of the holiday feasts. It's not only the food that gets me, it's also the drinks. I enjoy the dark stouts, egg nogs, and… Continue

I'm EXHAUSTED today. I really have to start going to bed earlier. I tell myself that all the time, but for some reason, it never happens. Normal bedtime for me during the week has been between 11:30 pm and midnight. That wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for my alarm going off at 6 am the next morning.
I don't WAKE UP at 6 am, but that's when the alarm goes off. I'm one of those snooze button junkies.
If I have to shower I hit snooze once or twice, but if I don't have to… Continue

After waiting 3 weeks I emailed the dealer once again and this time I told him I want a refund. The watch hasn't shown up and there is still no tracking information so I am left to believe nothing has been shipped. He emails me back and says to please wait while he checks with the EMS shipping company again.
I think to myself, yeah whatever. He won't respond. I'll wait till the morning, then I'll file my paypal dispute as planned. I get up, check my email, and low and behold there is… Continue
