Life is hard

Sometimes in life we are dealt some hard cards. The cards that you hold in your hand for years to come, never knowing if you should get rid of them, or keep hanging on to them.

I have been dealt with a lot of cards in my life. I always come out on top, always looking at the positive instead of the negative. Can you imagine how life or your friends would be if your life is full of nothing but Negative? The sad brought on everyday, or the smart ass comments that they say 24-7. I have noticed to make your life better for yourself, you have to figure out who you are in the beginning. You have to find your inner-self before you can get rid of the cards that you are dealt.

No one ever said that this life is easy, and that you will never go through hard times, or times that you will never cry.

So, for today. Figure out what makes you happy, and sit and just relax on that thought. Let the smile come to your face, as you feel what you are thankful about, or just call a friend/family to make you laugh. Everyone needs a time in their day to smile, laugh and feel good about themselves.

 Joke for today

A young man was walking through a supermarket to pick up a few things when he noticed an old lady following him around. Thinking nothing of it, he ignored her and continued on. Finally he went to the checkout line, but she got in front of him. “Pardon me,” she said, “I’m sorry if my staring at you has made you feel uncomfortable. It’s just that you look just like my son, who just died recently.” “I’m very sorry,” replied the young man, “is there anything I can do for you?” “Yes,” she said, “As I’m leaving, can you say ‘Good bye, Mother’? It would make me feel so much better.” “Sure,” answered the young man.
As the old woman was leaving, he called out, “Goodbye, Mother!” As he stepped up to the checkout counter, he saw that his total was $127.50. “How can that be?” He asked, “I only purchased a few things!” “Your mother said that you would pay for her,” said the clerk.

May 29th Diet

Well, this month has been highs and lows 😦
My motivation keeps slacking every time I turn around. This month its been bladder infections off and on for 2 weeks, not going to the bathroom like I should, a crappy womanly flow and just blah! I have been busy with all my projects but my motivation has been lacking. I want to get things done, but don’t feel the energy to find it. (Sorry if some of you are at a TMI moment)

So, What I ate today…

Breakfast: 1 cup cereal 1/2 cup 2% milk
Lunch: Nodda
Snack: Nodda
Dinner: Double Cheeseburger meal (only ate the burger and around 10 fries) with a sweet tea (Water is always gross there).

Exercise: my eyes when I go to sleep

I have tooooooo find my motivation!!! It is one of those jvnjfnvjnjnvjndv moments. HA! Tomorrow, will be another day to try to get my feet off the ground!

May 28th Diet

Today has been a laid back day. A “cheat” day.
Breakfast: Cinnamon Roll with a glass of water
Lunch: 1/2 a hotdog, 2 tablespoons of potato salad
Dinner: 2 Corn dogs with ketchup and mustard
Exercise: none – Bah! I will tomorrow though, been a long day with family! I had a blast and I will post more tomorrow.

I had a coke today, and boy will I know it later 😦
Also, will be posting pictures tomorrow of our fun day in the sun!

My Journey May 27th

I have decided to make a post about my journey through my weight lost. I have already lost 13 pounds and counting. I do not weight myself every day, as I believe that really doesn’t help. Your body is going to go up and down in weight. You are never the same in the morning, as you are at night. So, you can’t expect your pounds to be the same day by day. You will have good days, and bad days. Never let your “weight” upset you, if you are happy in the results you are getting, and how you are feeling, and then go with it! You are the only one to make yourself happy, and don’t count on the small things to bring you down.

Any who, I am 25 years old, 5’3 is my height, and I am 178 lbs (as of May 2nd).  I will post pictures, maybe once a month, or the days I go to the Dr. I am not sure yet, if you have ideas, please let me know.

I believe that friends will motivate you, and also that it comes within. If you don’t want to do something you will find 13 million excuses not to, than someone who likes doing it and wants it to be done. Self discipline is a must. If you cheat and drink a coke, then you need to burn off those extra calories.

I am not on a strict diet either. I watch what I eat with proportions, and eat 1 sweet before 6:00 pm, if I want a sweet that day. I, however, have cut out my sodas, pop, or coke, whichever word you use 😀 I have become a fan of flavored water, the little packs you can peel and pour into your 20 oz water bottle. If I work outside in the yard for more than an hour or 2 then I will not exercise in the house. Working outside is hot enough for me, and I am totally exhausted by the time I get back in the house. Sometimes, I am outside for 4-6 hours at a time, just depends on the temperature or shade. I do take a diet pill but on June 3rd I will no longer be taking it. I will be off of it for 3 months. If I gain weight in 3 months I will not be able to get the diet pill back until I lose the weight I gained. So, now you know what I do and I hope I can keep you motivated and try to keep myself motivated. I will post daily, or try to about what I eat or what I do for exercise that day. (Lisa, you better remind me, and vice versa, pinch Kayla into doing this with us) I will update this with a recent picture of me, as soon as I find my camera charger (Bah!!! Don’t know where Hubby put it)

If I exercise inside, it is on the Wii (Just Dance 2) or the elliptical. I will post either, how many songs I do, and how long with the Just Dance 2 and with the elliptical I will post how many calories I burn, and how many minutes I done it. I love doing the Just Dance 2, its fun and you can sing along. If you have kids they can do it with you 😀 (Even though Jade likes crawling around my legs and I step on her on accident sometimes)

The end of May results

May 27th
Morning: I had a cup of Honey Nut Cheerios with ½ cup of 2% milk
Lunch: A banana 😮 with 16 oz of water
Dinner: Sandwich (honey smoked turkey with a tsp of Mayo on one side of the bread, Mustard on the other slice) with 20 oz of water

Exercise: spray painted my doors, played around outside from 2:00pm til 8pm.  (small breaks of course)

Tuesday

Nothing like a great Tuesday.

Waking up feeling refreshed, ready to go, and to start your day off by exercising is always a plus. Looking in the mirror while you are straightening your hair, realizing your old self is coming back to life, you smile at your reflection knowing you are beautiful, inside and out. Now you just wish everyone else is having a great day like you are.

May everyone have a wonderful Tuesday!! Here is a song that I thought about today.
