Getting Real Today

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Today is get the rest of these filthy dishes done day!!! I don't usually slack... well I don't slack... okay I slack at least once every two weeks on dishes, but last week I almost took a break from doing dishes... You know what last week I took a little of a break on a lot of things... hmm... I must ponder this. But anyway I've been trying to catch up the past couple days on pile of dirty plates, bowls, and cutlery but today is the day I get it all done and get my counter back!!! Just keeping it real!

Swim lessons for the kids have gone great! My daughter has a little bit of trouble staying focused in a structured environment, she likes to do her own thing and has trouble listening! So she's like most 3 year olds!
emoticon My son is a very good listener, especially for being 2, but he doesn't like the pool very much! He loves to take baths and play in shallow water or sprinklers but if the water is deeper than a foot he doesn't like it!

I just got done with a core workout and man I'm feeling it!!! I've been finding myself slacking during my workouts thinking one day I'll be able to do this properly and for the whole time but Today is that day!!! I will give it my all every workout not hoping I do better in the future! I've also been catching myself trying to get more food again. I would let milk or creamer splash over into my cup and think "oops it's just a little more" or take not only the food I measured but take bites off the kids plates thinking "oh it's just a little bit more" emoticon I'm just falling into old habits again and these little things always lead to bigger, I don't need to measure anymore things!!! So today I've measured everything to the line and I'm not making excuses for myself anymore, if I go over my calories than so be it, it's better to be honest than lie to myself!

It's gettin' real today!!!

Imagine yourself in your favorite place in the world. Feel the peace and positive energy.
Right now my favorite place would have to be my garden! I've got three tiny baby watermelons growing and two tiny green tomatoes!!! It feels so good and accomplishing to grow my own fruit and vegetables from tiny little sprouts!!! I way underestimated the growth I was going to get and my plants are a little crowded but it feels so good to water and sing (yes I sing to them every morning) and prune these plants that have grown before my eyes!

Well that's all for today
