I need to be regular

Well, last week I decided that I wanted to make myself goals for the week. So, I wrote a list of goals on Monday (and I forgot to mention them when I wrote my last blog) and I'm just taking a look tonight. I think I did pretty well. Let's take a look, shall we?
1. Get to 7 Burpees (Done)
2. Lemon water and veggie juice daily (the lemon water I sometimes forget, but I get it almost daily)
3. Adam to bed earlier (well, I PUT him in bed earlier. He just chooses to stay up until after 11pm)
4. Email myself an list of "10 things I like about myself" and "10 things I'm grateful for"

The last one is where I sucked up. I wrote the lists just once. I have a really hard time finding things I like about myself that don't have to do, directly, with my son. Really think about it, do you think you can make a list of 10 things you love about yourself, every day?? Without repeating???? I couldn't even go 2 days.

I've also come to realize that there is a person in my life who is really negative. I didn't ever really notice it until recently. For example, when I announce, excitedly, how much weight I've lost, this person says "well, if you cut back on your portions, you'll lose more." Not, "good job" or "congratulations." It's really hurtful. I really am working my ass off (literally) and that's all I get? It's very frustrating because this person is very important and I don't know what, if anything, I can say to change it. I'm just rolling with it for right now.

Overall, I think this week was a good week. I made some good decisions. Like the night my family had brownie sundaes for dinner. I had a roast chicken sandwich. I'm not perfect, by any stretch. I just think I'm making better decisions. I really love Bojangles chicken biscuits for breakfast. I used to go through the drive thru on my way to work and get 2 chicken biscuits and a large Mt. Dew every morning on my way to work. Talk about trying to kill myself! Anyway, I haven't stopped there in a LONG time. But, this week, twice, I was DYING to stop. I didn't. I applaud myself for not stopping. I don't have a scale at home, it's at work for the "Biggest Loser" competition. I think that's good, too because otherwise I'd be weighing myself every day, trying to see if I pooped enough.

I've got a couple goals for this week, I'll post them after I write them out. Probably Monday or Tuesday. Any suggestions for goals??


  1. I am so proud of you! I can understand how hard it is to write your assets, maybe asking your friends on fb could help. We don't see all the wonderful (or awful) about ourselves. I can say many great things about you, the question is would you agree or will you try and prove me wrong...we all have bad habits. Anyway, I think you are beautiful, caring, funny, original, sweet, good momma, good daughter, loyal, good grand-daughter, stylish, sexy, good aunt, good friend, bright, smart, loving, logical, creative...I could go on and on so if you ever get stuck call me, btw I have examples if you don't believe me at first. I totally love you!

    1. I totally love you, Tia! PS, you totally made me cry a little. I may need examples this week. I'm gonna work really hard to send myself that email every day. I want to send it from home at night, so when I get to work in the morning, it's the first thing I'll read. Starting the day off on a positive.
