I'm sitting here at home at 12:07 am,Thursday,May 10,2007.
I just came from The Giant Supermarket and I bought a freezer full of Smart Ones(tm) from Weight Watchers.
I am trying to get my ass in gear for my metamorphosis..dammit I was supposed to start in January after Blues Alley,then I got blindsided by work and man stuff,and I am just really focused TODAY..I started my two mile walk around my neighborhood on Monday..didn't do squat Tuesday and today,but I'm gonn get my hips up at 6am(less than 6 hours from now) and WALK WALK WALK....my mom is doing it with me,shes already lost 14 pounds in the last two weeks and she hasnt even started exercising yet.
I am going to St.Lucia to sing at the Jazz Fest, I am filling in for my buddy Will Downing,who is recovering from being sick since January...(he tells his story on his website..) He's such a strong man,I am praying for him.
I leave at 5 am on Friday Morning,and then I get back on Mothers Day at 6:30 pm..and my mom is cooking a crazy meal of Seafood Salad,Crabcakes,Spareribs(oh my gosh Jazz devours Spareribs!! I wish I could get a picture of him..y'all would crack up!)..and goodness knows what else..so we are taking that day off the diet ,but come Monday morning,I am back on schedule.
So my routine is basically..
-Walking every morning for 45 minutes which is 2 miles (for me)..I'll cut the time down soon)
-Weight Training with my personal trainer at his gym in Security Mall (Charles Harris III is his name),three days a week.
When I am on the road I will walk the stairs in the hotel for thirty minutes and /or go to the gym if they have one. Or go for a walk around the hotel.
I time myself by my new CD which is about 50 minutes long..
-My Maysa Menu
* Breakfast- What ever I want within 10 points.
* snack-fruit/yogurt (count the points)
*Lunch- Smart Ones meal
*snack-??? within my daily points
*Dinner-Smart Ones meal
-Drink alot of water
-Pray that I will stick to this this time.Please GOD help me. :)
I'm sorry I'm such a punk and refuse to tell you how much I weigh today,but I will admit that as of today ,May 10,2007. I have 95 pounds to lose.
I'm trying to get the new site up as soon as possible,so that we can publicly show you all my progress...
Oh I haven't told you guys about the Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards..I had a great time ,and I did a pretty good job as a presenter I think. Troy, went with me,and as a director,he said I did good. and believe me ,he doesnt hold back when he thinks he can help you improve!
Al Jarreau won in my category,but I wasn't mad..it's like losing an award to your teacher! It's all good.
Troy took most of the pictures..but I did get some cool ones of the hotel we stayed in for the Jam Sessions the next night ..very nice!
I like Toronto..hey,BRUCE??? What happened to you?Dag..
Oh well dahlin's..I'll add some more tomorrow..I gotta tell you about my first REVENGE OF THE UNDERGROUND DIVAS CONCERT!
The inaugural concert unfortunately is a private gig,but hopefully it will lead to something big!
This flyer is an unofficial idea. And I probably shouldn't put it out there yet..but I want y'all to see what's going on..ya dig??
Love ya, I'm sleepy. 'Night.
