I'm Back!

I'm back. Sorry for the prolonged absence. I've been crazy busy. But enough with excuses...I'm back!!!!


Still getting over a nasty sinus infection. But I'm not going to let it beat me.

Just finished up tech support for this last, lovely presidential election. Busy, busy. I give props to all of you who exercised your right to vote, it was the best voter turnout ever!

Still trying to buy a house. It is a short-sell, which will take time, so pray for me and my family. Pray that God's Will will be worked out either way on this one and that I will have patience with the process.

I want to say a big THANK YOU to all the veterans! THANK YOU for serving! THANK  YOU for giving your time and service. And THANK YOU to all the families of those who have and are serving. Happy Veterans Day! Thank you for our rights and religious freedoms and protecting our way of life!

I'm ready to lose this weight. I want to start running again. I'm actually getting antsy about it. I'm supposed to meet up with my cousin tomorrow to get started, but part of me is so excited that I kind of want to get started today. Maybe with just walking, but I'm already trying to work out the time needed in my head to see if I can actually fit it into my schedule today.

I'm TIRED of this weight.

I'm DISGUSTED at the person I see looking back at me in the mirror.

I'm SICK of my clothes not fitting and trying on 15 outfits to find one that doesn't make me feel like a cow everyday.

I REFUSE to buy any clothes in a bigger size.

I am WEARY of feeling like crap. Being out of breath when I climb a flight of stairs. Being tired all the time.


But I will persevere.

I WANT to feel good. When I look in the mirror. When I put on my clothes. When I run up the stairs.

I want to run. And be able to run. I want to be able to do more with my kids. I want to be a positive influence on my kids.

So why put off starting tomorrow what I can do today???

I don't think I will...

Still have the Color Vibe Run in the back of my mind....I really, really want to do it! I just don't know right now with our crazy schedules, the holidays and family visits, whether or not I will have the time or money. But I really want to try.

Regardless of whether I get to or not, I will start walking/jogging and start counting calories and drinking water. My new mini goal is to lose 10 lbs by December. I should be able to do that in 3 weeks. That's .52 lbs a day or roughly 3.33 lbs a week. I CAN DO THIS!!!!

Here's to a new start, a new day, a new week - all leading to a new ME!!!!
