Blog Award

Thank you to Suzie @ !Suzie Makes You Up!
and Melina @ Only A Flight Away
for giving me this blog award!

I really appreciate everyone that reads my blog and comments!
I've been blogging for what now seems like FOREVER
and for awhile it seemed like only my Aunt, 
my Mom and co-worker ever read it.  So the fact that
I am now teetering at hitting 100 followers chokes me up
at times.  (imagine Sally Field acceptance speech...
"You like really like me")

As for who I nominate ... 
(Yes, that means YOU!!)
You all are amazing and you all have great blogs!!

I'd like to give special thanks to a few....

She designed my button and all my labels!
She's amazing...check out her blog!!

You couldn't ask for a more devoted follower!
I love how she always has something going on
and right now she's doing Blog Secret Santa ...
sign up...I think the deadline is today!!
I could be your Secret Santa!!

I just want you to know that I understand what you
are going through...I went through it last year at this time.
My blog was silent a lot during that time because all I 
wanted to write about was how I was feeling but I didn't want to 
write about it.  It's okay to not blog....I'm here when you do.

Don't forget to post your blog award!
You deserve it!!

12 Things You Need for Successful Weight Loss

1) Get your head in the game! Weight loss doesn't happen without dedication.  You have to have the mindset to get it done.  I've said in the past that motivation for me is like a light switch ... when it's on it is ON.  Even though motivation is one of the key things you need ~ you also need patience, understanding, time, and willpower.  You have to make a commitment to yourself and stick with it. 2) Track your progress! Tracking keeps you honest to yourself.  Without tracking you can sabotage yourself into overeating.  For example, tell me EVERYTHING you ate on Friday off the top of your head, not so easy right?  Also, there are tons of apps out there that you can quickly track or you can do it the old fashion way of writing it down.  Find what works for you and do it daily.  Also, as a rule I normally track my whole day in the morning.  Breakfast, Lunch, Snack & Dinner.  This also keeps me in track.  I can budget out my day and make changes if things arise or when y…

It's Okay Thursday/Hello Monday #5

... to be so productive that you "forget" to blog!

... to have tire issues on April Fool's Day and have to preface every text with ... this is NOT an April Fool's joke.

... to buy 11 items from the dollar days area at Target in an effort to get organized.  {hmmmm ... maybe a good idea for a blog post.}

... to forget to finish this post!

Hello Monday#5 It is truly amazing how much better my makeup and hair look on the weekend. So if you have never tried Starbucks Via Iced Coffee - I highly recommend. So I just watched Into the Woods over the weekend.  Why did the music sound EXACTLY like Sweeney Todd? Seriously I even googled that sh!t and came up with nothing. Why is it on weekends I am all about managing my down time  like it was my last meal or something.  Um no, I cannot do XYZ,  that is a total lack of consideration to my weekend of staying at  home and doing nothing for 48 hours straight.  
How are you doing today?
