Prayer request and other things....
Friday, January 28, 2011
Before I ramble on about anything about me, I would like to ask you all to please keep my brother in law and his wife in your prayers. They just suffered a miscarriage yesterday (their first child) and as you can imagine, this has hit them hard. They really are good people and my heart goes out to them.
Starting with something like that really makes me feel like my "issues" aren't really that important. I look at my son and realize that even though my health and appearance aren't where they should be I truly am blessed.
Yesterday wasn't too bad of a day really. I exercised some, actually worked drinking water into my day and I didn't get a visit from that dreaded binge monster. I still cannot understand what is up with this weather though! One day they are calling for snow, and literally 12 hours later...its 70 degrees with the sun shining! I guess that is Texas for you though. Today is going to be 73 with loads of sunshine so I'm forcing myself out of the house for some much needed fresh air and Vit. D!!! Plus, my little guy is going stir crazy I think.

Bryce (my little guy) has learned how to say "love you" and let me just say...that is a heart melter right there!!! I was telling him "mommy loves you!" yesterday and he said, "Lub Ooooo!" Of course he's also learned to leap from the couch like a spider monkey as well...which is causing Mommy some stress because he doesn't always stick the landing....is it considered being overprotective if you wrap your children in bubble wrap and make them wear a helmet?? If he doesn't quit channeling his inner flying squirrel I just may resort to this!!!

I was watching infomercials (stop laughing.) yesterday and I saw one for Zumba. Anyone do this? It looks like a blast, even though I couldn't dance even if I was standing on someone's feet.... But I can sure flail around to the music in a quazi-seizure like motion...and that'll do. (yeah, enjoy that mental image) I'd really like to give it a try (and of course I'd REALLY like to try out some abs like they have too...) So...feedback anyone?
For those that blog often...do you ever feel like you're just confined to talking about weight issues? One of the reasons I don't blog as much is because I feel like everytime I set out to do so I have to focus on weightloss/gain etc. I hate feeling like I'm being defined as the fat girl thats at least trying. There is so much more to our lives than the weight struggle.
Sooo...here's a bit of a challenge to those that want to humor me. Leave me 1 comment that is just all about YOU that doesn't have anything to do with weightloss! You guys give so much by supporting me, and I'd love to get to know y'all! I'm not suggesting we get all "facebook-y" on here, just a tidbit of info that you'd like to share :)
Happy Sparking friends!
