Truthful Tuesday....

Do you want to know the truth? I gained 0.6 lbs. There, it's out there for the whole world to see. I gained. Probably because I couldn't put the chips down this week. I'll lose it though. I will! I have in the past and I can do it again.
So, we talked about "exer-cuses" today at my Weight Watchers meeting. "It's too hot, it's too cold, I don't have time, I'm tired" the list goes on, and on, and on. Well sad to say that I've fallen into that trap. I was really good with my exercises until a couple of months ago.
Since I'm about the schedules I decided I'm going to schedule in my exercise. I set alarms for 5 days a week. And so I don't stay up too late cleaning ( I tend to stay up too late getting carried away cleaning). I just need to stay with a positive attitude that this WILL motivate me and keep me moving.
So, anyone out there have any tips on how to stay motivated? Until next time, God bless you and yours.

Manic Monday....

And boy has it ever been. It's been a crazy, (mostly) happy whirl-wind this morning. We had lost power late Thursday night/early Friday morning. (hang with me it ties in, I promise .....Anyways,) I have one of those alarm clocks that has a back up battery so when the power goes out I don't have to reset it. Right?! Wrong!
My alarm went off this morning and I was freaking out. I'm late! I'm late! Turns out, uh, no, I'm not. When it came back on with the time it was actually early. So, when I figured that out I stopped rushing around like a crazy woman.
Christopher got C-Bear up and out of bed for me. I know, I have an AMAZING husband, try not to be jealous. I picked out her clothes and she came up to me while I was doing my makeup and asked me to put her flowers in her hair.
I've decided that I really like this age. She's young enough that Mommy and Daddy are still cool people that she wants to hang out with, but old enough to have her own personality.
So, I've decided that I better get on with my day. Until next time, God bless you and yours.

How do you choose to look at it?

It's Sunday night, the end of the weekend and almost the beginning of the work week. I can fall into the trap and look at this work week with dread, or I can choose to rise above. It's really hard for me to look at the upcoming week with hope, but I'm going to choose to rise above.
It's been such a wonderful weekend with C-Bear. We had some mommy daughter time on Saturday and today. It was so nice, made me want to be a stay at home mommy. But alas, it's not in the cards for me. *sigh* Makes it even harder to go back to work, especially when I have to work open to close tomorrow.
I just have to count my blessings though. So, I have a job. I get to work in an office where it some what temperature controlled. I don't have to do physical labor. My job comes with perks, I get discounts, and I'm all about the discounts.

And on another topic.....I think that I may have been converted, to a Mac that is. Chris and I have gone though a laptop about every 2 or 3 years. So we decided; "Why not give a Mac a try?" We both LOVE our iPhones and the iPod touch that we got about 3 years ago. So, why not?! I'll admit, there is a learning curve, and I'm still getting used to it, but so far I haven't found anything that I dislike.
So, on that note I'm going to wish everybody a good-bye and a good week. Until next time, God bless you and yours.

Thankful Thursday...

I lead such a blessed beautiful life. I'm watching a 20/20 story and just realizing how great that I have it. SO let the list of blessings begin:

1.) I'm lucky to have the ability to know how to cook. I'm not the best cook in the world by any means. But I like to do it. I love finding new recipes to try out.

2.) My daughter. She is truly a gift from God. She makes me so happy! Even when she drives me crazy I couldn't imagine living without her.

3.) My husband. I married my best friend. What more could a girl ask for?

4.) My friends. Weather they're a click, drive, or phone call away, I know that if I needed something that they would be there.

5.) My faith. It's what gets me through this wonderful, crazy, beautiful life. I know that even when the road gets rough that God loves me.

So, until next time, God bless you and yours.

Truthful Tuesday...

Truthful Tuesday, here we go. I've been actually following the Weight Watchers Points Plus Plan (say that three times, fast. lol), and imagine this....It worked! Crazy I know. (by the way, someone really needs to invent a sarcastic faunt).


I lost 1.8 lbs this week! Go me! It was great to be in that room full of positive energy. I just kept thinking of "Finding Nemo". You know the part when all of the fish are caught in the net and Nemo convinces all of the fish to swim down. "Just keep swimming! Just keep swimming!".

Okay, now that I have that truth out of the way here's another truth: I've been royal wedding obsessed. It's just such a beautiful story. I DVR'ed the wedding and C-Bear and I watched while having a tea party. One of my favorite things to see, besides the obvious bride and groom....the hats (or fascinators). I want to go somewhere where I can dress up and wear one. I know, strange. But they are so different and expressive.
