things we show
when everything goes right
things we hide
when everyone else thinks things are right
show me all
I want to know
when everything is wrong
when everything is right
when I am right here
give me your good
give me your bad
I can take it
I know what it is
Don’t feel lost
I’ll hold your hand

People are the same
No mater where they are
no mater what
how can we be
so divided by Impression given
because of color
we have the same color
when we bleed
we cry the same tears
when we grieve
we are the same
you and me
don’t rush to judge
by a first sight
We made it through Monday….yay!!! We’re on a roll…let’s keep it going!!!
All great truths begin as blasphemies.

Have a happy April’s fool day!!!

Hope your week is going amazing!! Stay warm!!
Do the things you know, and you shall learn the truth you need to know.

So as you all know I have not been posting a lot this past month. The holidays, family, and me revaluating me. I refuse to make New Year’s resolutions because…let’s be honest…no one ever keeps their New Year’s resolution. So instead of doing that I am reiterating the goal I intend to achieve: I am going to improve my eating habits, continue to do the exercising that I have been doing, and I am going to lose the weight I have left to lose.
In the last month I have discovered that when I made a decision not to allow people to control what I do or how I choose to live…I have started to live what really seems to be a better life. And as much as I hate to admit it because I hate to see people care about unhappy, I am actually happier and a lot calmer. I am glad that I no longer ( or at least most of the time) allow certain people to get under my skin. My holidays went a lot smoother then in years past. Does that mean I don’t go around my family or want to talk to them? No it just means I know how to manage myself and not worry about what everyone thinks or says.Thank goodness I made the choice I did 11 years ago.
A few things I want to accomplish this year…more goals then resolutions…just have to put my best foot forward:
- continue to improve my health with my fitness goals
- continue to pay down any debt we have (extra on house payment)
- manage myself better
- be a better parent especially now that my kids are teenagers
- be a better wife 🙂
Overall, I think this year is going to be a great one. I think it will be a little challenging in some areas but I know we will be able to do it. I know I will be doing more for myself to improve me and help my kids and husband do well for themselves. WE will accomplish what we set our minds to do. So here is to the first step…we will be great!!
Regardless of who has won, we have to as a nation come together. Let’s accept what the results are and continue with our lives and hope we can be a nation once again as a whole.
We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.

Ok I did not reach my goal for the month but I did not gain anything extra (even with all the cake and other not so healthy things) that’s all that counts at this moment. I really wanted to be at 168 by the end of the month but you know what it I ok. I am not going to stress about it. Because you know why? I know what I have to do and I know I will do it. I am going to keep my goal at 168 and I am going to do it!!
I know I have said in other posts that weight loss is not my only goal and it’s not. I have to reset myself both mentally and physically. I have to get out of that state of mind that I go to food for any and everything. I have to remember that food is not my enemy but my state of thinking is. Not my self esteem but my laziness, my looking for the easy way to do things, my saying instead of me getting up and cooking lets go out to eat or order pizza…I will conquer this.
SO here is to next month…11/25/2016 – 168 pounds
Height: 5′ 7″
Bust: 38 in
Waist: 32 in
Hips: 38 in
