getting BIG

Last week, I decided that I needed to get back control of my weight struggle.  It's on-going and it's not anyone's fault or problem, but my own.  I did weight watchers a year or so ago and saw some serious results.  I know that I can do it but I haven't been able to just buckle down and do it.

Anyway, last week I posted about my struggles because it's becoming more and more of a problem and honestly, with Spring/Summer around the corner, I need to get this bod back in shape so I can wear my clothes!

Last Weeks Goals:

1. Eat one piece of toast with peanut butter, not two. Ate eggs and Fiber 1 Cereal instead.

2. Start saying NO to food. Started doing this more.  I've also used this when talking about getting seconds or asking for a larger portion.

3. Drink more water. YES!

4. When cooking, use less cheese. I'm still working on this.  It's hard because cheese is so darn good!

5. Take a smaller portion when serving a plate. Yes, saying no and taking smaller portions!  Except when I'm talking about gummy bears.  Love those little guys.

6. Wait before getting a second serving to make sure I'm really hungry. Yes, cutting back and only eating what's on my plate.  I'm trying very hard to be aware of this.  Very hard.

7. Stay away from tortilla chips. I ate them all the week prior so we just didn't buy any this time around.  So far so good...

My Goals for this Week:

1. Cook in, eat carry-out less.

2. Control the portion size.

3. To make a plate and eat it when at a social gathering and don't just pick and eat.

4.  Exercise whenever you have the chance.  Even if it's consecutive days!

Why is this big, you might ask?

Well it's because I'm only getting BIGGER and if I don't do something about it, I'm going to be so BIG!!!!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
