Setbacks But Moving Forward...

Monday, August 27, 2012

Guess I should call them self induced setbacks. I was to start my shakes on Saturday but it didn't happen. I decided to get more junk in and then start today. So I make my shake this morning with strawberries & bananas. Then I leave for work. I'm about 30 min into my drive when I realize I've left my shake sitting on the counter and I didn't pack my Ezekiel bread for a snack. NOT GOOD emoticon So I've bought bfast again and did I make the best choice? No, of course not, but I am not going to beat myself up about this.

I'm having some inner struggles with my marriage. If you are one who prays, I would appreciate your prayers. I'm just so conflicted right now and don't know what to do anymore. I feel like I'm at my wits end and my brain is just all over the place thus, so are my thoughts in this blog.

I did get to read Fifty Shades of Grey this weekend. LOVED IT! Then I downloaded the 2nd book Fifty Shades Darker and am 1/2 way through it. I am pretty sure I'll be getting the 3rd one as well. It's great having a Kindle App!

I'm so boss just approved my being off tomorrow in addition to my normal Wednesday off! So that means I work today, off for 2 days, work 2 days and then off 3 for the long weekend! emoticon So I have no excuse not to emoticon butt & emoticon forward! Let's DO THIS! emoticon

    Everything is a lessoned learned. I am sure you won't forget the shake again.

Sorry about marriage stuff. Remember people are brought together in marriage for a reason. I have read all the Shades books and even made my husband read the first one and told him to be more like that. BTW the second one is the best and the last one is a bore.

    Simone, you are aware of your choices, and perhaps that some of them could have been better and you have acknowledged it. I think that is important and definitely is the right direction to go in. Awareness eventually promotes success - you can do it!

I'm so sorry to hear that you are having some personal probs and send positive vibes your way that all conflicts will be resolved quickly.

Enjoy your days off and those shakes!!
