It's Okay Thursday #28

It's that time of the week don't forget to link up with Amber & Neely!!

It's Okay...

that I feel like the only thing stressful about my holiday season is those Holiday Helper Headquarters posts I have committed myself to doing - blah!

that I forgot to announce that I have officially changed my name ... okay I mean last name ... my name isn't Shia.  But seriously, I felt happy and sad about changing it - I mean I've been me my whole life and now it kinda feels like I am starting over.  I've perfected every way of signing my old name ... heck we did nothing but that when I was young - so I got this!  But now ... I sign like uhhhhh.  My 3 year old niece, Kaelyn, is in (pre) pre-school (there is such a thing) and she has learned to write her name and all her letters - so on Saturday she was like I want to spell your name Aunt Llissa ... okay M E L L I S S A ... now I want to spell your last name ... okay R O N D uh O wait I ... she stops and looks at me ... Aunt Llissa do you not know how to spell your name?  With the most sympathetic voice and look on her face ... I almost died laughing.

that I have a love/hate relationship with my new work hours.  I mean I come in earlier so I get to go home earlier but seriously the morning takes forever to end!  GRRRR!

to wonder if it is just the free version of Pandora that plays like the same 10 songs over and over again.  If I buy the app - is it better - or did I just pay for the same thing I was getting for free?

to hate when the funny radio morning show starts talking about politics then takes calls regarding the topic - I don't want to hear this crap in the morning - I just want to laugh while I stop every 2 seconds on the interstate.

to be so sick of food - seriously do you ever go through this? - right now I just have no appetite for anything - no craving for anything - nothing - I am so sick of everything I eat.

What's okay with you today?
Don't forget to link up!


  1. Love the story about your niece-adorable! She sounds so sweet :) thanks for stopping by my blog!! :)

  2. OH and I wish I was sick of food sometimes! I know exactly what you're talking about but mine is usually the exact opposite problem ;)

  3. I'm not sure if I'd change my name after I get married. It's definitely like changing your identity.

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?
