212 And yet I feel good!!

Did not go down but these jeans now fit. Old Navy…12 yeahhhh. (Ya’ll know why specified old navy…lol)

I am so excited that I’m actually making progress. I do have to remember to focus on something positive whenever the scale does not go down. Today I decided to try on a pair of jeans that I’ve had in my closets for 2 months. I bought them 2 months ago but I could not fit into them and now I can 🙂 I am doing the green smoothie in the morning and stuff like that but I also will eat a salad or veggies if I want to so I am not subscribing to the only drink shakes thing because for me that does not work. I like food, I like the taste of food but I just have to make better choices but me getting my nutrition only through shakes is just not gonna work so I do what works for me and hopefully by seeing my journey you will do what works for you!

I have failed at posting everyday but I will say this, I have been posting most days and I will continue to post and there’s no way to go back and catch up but believe me by the end of the year there will be at least 320 post out of 365 days and I think that will be able to give someone a good idea of how this works in reality.

I also do a lot of my posting through voice to text. My goal is to just get the information out so periodically I will go back and update when I see a mistake. If you do see a mistake please just get the gist of what I’m saying and not focus on the mistakes.

Yes. It is a great day!

Today is turning into a great day, not because anything great is happening but because this has started off as a horrible day however I am choosing to make it a great day.  We have a choice!!  I mean if you were to sit me down right now at 1:30 Saturday afternoon and ask me what was so great today I would have to say nothing but you know what I will never say that because regardless of the craziness….there is always more good than bad in this world…that is a fact.  So what is good on a day like today. My good is that I have the ability to type (right now), beautiful family, I am breathing, great friends, I can walk and talk, compassion for others, a positive attitude and the ability to think, plan and demand that any challenges that I am facing right now will be absolutely miniscule next week, next month or next year. I actually feel better right now because I choose to feel better:) Life is good!! Rock on!!

This Is It!

This really is it. Now is the best time to do anything and to work towards your dreams. What ever “it” is will not become anything without us realizing that “this is it” and now is the time to make “it” a reality. I know this to be true in all aspects of life. For now my “it” is the reality of having a lean and healthy body. My “it” is my life(family, friends, business and stuff). My dreams are becoming a reality in front of my eyes and that is really exciting and in many ways I am already living out my dreams(great husband, amazing kids and a business I love) however when I dreamed of living this dream I am living now I did not dream of living with weight issues. Yes, I am doing something about that right now however I must admit that I have worked hard on the dreams that have come true and on the ones that are beginning to come true but I never made a plan or even tried to work on my fitness. Sure I would work out a little here and there but it was never a priority like it is now. I know that for some carrying extra weight is no big deal but for me it is because I feel that my body is a gift and it is my duty to take the better care of it. Kinda like the philosophy of “this life is a gift from God and what you do with is your gift back to God.” I love the thought of living life leaner and healthier. As a wife and mother I think it is important to realize how important your health and weight is to you and your loved ones. It amazes me how many people will take care of businessn in business but because of their health and weight they are too tired to take care of “business” in the bedroom. I have always enjoyed intimacy with my husband however since I have been taking care better care of my body I have more energy and I find that I feel sexier(I always felt sexy:)) but now I feel sexier. lol. So what does that have to do with “this is it” well in my humble opinion to many people are waiting for the right time, right day or right moment and I just feel that the time is now…THIS IS IT…chime in Kenny Loggins…….lol
