Just Do It

Did I mention I'm not consistent? I think I did. I've been spending a lot of much needed time with my children. I'm in the middle of building my daughter a dollhouse. They started back to school last week and my husband should be home in 3 weeks. I can't believe it's been a year since he left for a year of hell.

Tomorrow I'm going to wake up early and do some weight training. You may be wondering why that's significant. Well you see, I'm fat and not in the way that most women say they're fat when they really aren't. I truly do need to lose some weight or I'll be facing diabetes and/or heart disease in the near future. I turned 29 on August 1 and I've become increasingly aware of just how unhealthy I am. I've always known, but it's more apparent after photos are taken. I can't blame my weight on having children any longer because my baby is now four and half.

I tend to "give it a try" only to end up 2 weeks later right back where I started. This time I'm just going to do it. No thinking. No negative self-talk. I'm just going to wake up and DO IT. Much in the same way I brush my teeth or put my shoes on before I walk out the door. I'm just going to make it a part of my day that has to be done before I even leave my house. No excuses. I don't make excuses for not brushing my teeth, because let's be honest that's just disgusting. I need to think of my fat the same way I think of my plaque. They're both equally gross and must be removed from my body on a daily basis. So, here we go and I'll keep you updated.

It's about time you got your svelt, albeit slightly exaggerated self back to your blog. Here I was heralding the birth of the most amazing amateur blog of all time, and she promptly takes a vacation! We need to talk. You could be a contender. They haven't voted you off "RockStar SuperBlogger" yet, so let's not get complacent.

Anyway, I can imagine how excited you must feel to have your man back soon. He has no idea how lucky he is. Unless, of course, he reads this blog.

Welcome back, girl, and keep at those pounds. Diabetes IS a bitch, I know, alot of people end up in my Critical Care Unit thanks to the evil sugar monster.

Michael, you are such a faithful fan. Thanks for sticking by me in these uncertain blogging times. If there was a such thing as "Rockstar SuperBlogger" you better believe I'd be blogging my little heart out. lol Take care and I'll try to see what's going on in your neck of the woods more often.
