So, I planned to blog EVERYDAY, but as when you vow to absolutely do something, it usually doesn't happen. Work was crazy busy this weekend, and I got a little side tracked and didn't blog. On the bright side, my attitude was much improved! My job can be very trying (the patients) and it's very easy to be a jerk. One of my goals this year is to see people as God sees them, with His eyes, His love, His belief in them. Remember, everyone who crosses your path does so for a reason. Every encounter is an opportunity to share love and kindness with another human being whose probably facing some mountain in their life...you're words or help could mean the difference between their hope or their surrender. God bless!

It is one of my goals to blog everyday in 2013. Writing is a very cathartic experience, somehow putting feelings into words on paper can really change your perspective. I'm not happy with who I've become, physically, emotionally, financially, but I'm not stuck in this life! I CAN CHANGE! God never said life was going to be easy, but He did promise to go with you every step of the way. Instead of grouching and complaining, I am claiming the victory that God has already planted in my life! Lord lead me, guide me, give me strength, peace, and joy! Life isn't about the destination, it's about the journey!

In my family we refer to the extra weight around the middle as a fupa (some say jelly/fat roll/muffin top) whatever you want to call it. It's a funny thing around us, a silly name for something we hate. Today, while playing with my sister's kids, she tells them to "touch her fupa and she'll freak out!" She is very athletic, fit build. I've always been sensitive about my weight, I have never been skinny, am incredibly modest, and HATE being touched by anyone! It really hurt my feelings the way she said it. I'm probably being overly sensitive, but it bothered me. Of course the kids were climbing all over me and touching me. Laughing and yelling "touch aunt ryan's fupa!" Is it silly that I'm 30 and got upset, like a 3rd grader being picked on at school? This really made me sad and embarrassed about who I've become/what I look like. Lord, please give me the strength and determination to finally make the change I've talked about for years.

Thank the Lord for small victories! I managed to stay within my calorie range, only had one non-diet soda, and did 35 minutes of strength training! It's only one day, but I gotta start somewhere! Hope everyone has a fantastic evening!

Just wondering, does anyone else ever find themselves moving forward, making progress, and then bam you're right back where you were? I don't mean just with diet and exercise either. Certainly in those areas, but what about in your spiritual life, your relationships, your work life, etc? I suppose it's the age old, unanswered question...but I'm gonna ask it anyway. Why do we always/sometimes go back to the thing that has made us unhappy, That isn't who we want to be, that wasn't what we were looking for. Why CHOOSE to go back to that thing that makes us miserable? Lately, I've been doing a lot of soul searching, because frankly, I have a crap attitude. I've always been a glass half empty kind of girl, even when I try not to be. My anger, pride, and tendency to hold a grudge really get in my way. This is a huge wall
between me and God...life really. I don't HAVE to be this way, but I CHOOSE
to. Why? It's not who I wanna be. I know I need to spend some time in
prayer about said things, and God will show the way to me I'm sure...and I
just have to get my stubborn rear end into His plan. Satan get behind me!
Ain't nothing getting this girl down!
