End of a long week!

on August 24, 2012

For the love of Pete!!!  This is the second post that I have done and it’s erased some of it!!  Argh!!


Hiya!!  This week has just flown by to me!  It’s been busy and productive at work this week and it’s made it pass by really fast.  This was a good thing. 🙂   When I get home I usually delve right into a book….  I am really seriously thinking about joining a book club.  This series by Veronica Roth is so great!  I am going to work on a review of the first book Divergent.  I am juuuuust about finished with the second book Insurgent.



Remember when I said that I was going to paint my bedroom??  Well I finally took some finished pictures!





Again, the lighting is bad, but I couldn’t believe the difference that just a coat of paint made!



Who are these lil munchkins??!!

My thighs were rubbing together even then!!!   You can’t see it, but my brother (Jason) is wearing bell bottoms.  We were awesome!




Today was a run day, but it was such a long day at work, I decided to make it tomorrow.  I did a 30 minute toning DVD this morning before I went to work.




I have really struggled this week with food!  I am not going to beat myself up, but I know that I can do better.  I haven’t been to the grocery store so I don’t have much in the house. Therefore, I have been just kind of throwing things together.  This is bad.  For me anyway.  I think it’s really important to stress here that I am human and can make mistakes.  I love food.  I really do.  No really, I do.  🙂  But I can also use food as an outlet.  Happy.  Sad.  Angry.  You name it.

I love candy and would eat a piece of chocolate every day if I could.  What I struggle with the most lately is accountability.  In starting this blog, I had this idea that this would help me maintain some sort of accountability, but there are some days that I struggle because of the blog.  Does that make sense?  I hope so.  I love sharing my life with you and I love making new friends and I really love to learn new ways to stay and be healthy.  Sometimes I want to just throw my head in a bad of chocolate or cookies and call it good.  Crazy I know!

The most important thing for me to tell you is the truth.  I really want to be honest with you and with my struggles.  Food is a struggle for me.  I just don’t want you to think that this isn’t hard for me sometimes, because it really is.

It’s almost 8:30 and I am already ready to go to sleep!  I have to work tomorrow, then heading to my friend Diahann’s to run, hanging out with her for a bit, then heading home to just chill out.  I will probably need to get some groceries sometime this weekend too.


What about you?  Big plans this weekend??

  1. aw i am sorry you are struggling, being honest is key though. i know you are like me and tend to be too hard on ourselves, hang in there!

  2. I have had a cruddy food week too. I was really bad yesterday. I was a bit better today, but I had to start tracking everything I ate to be a little bit more accountable. The paint job on the bedroom looks good!

  3. i HATE when u lose a long post/email/article!!! oh man, it makes me want to cry sometimes! 😛 that room of ur’s looks awesome….great job!

    i’m sorry that the foodage is being a bit of a bugger for u as of late. but i think so long as u truly live by those words u wrote, “i’m not going to beat myself up, but i know i can do better” then u’ll be able to get back on track. always look forward…so get to the store so u can fill ur house with the foods u need to nourish your body in the best way. 🙂 buuuut, food is so darn lovable too so make sure u eat things u like too. 🙂

    I’m with Cait – we are all human and it’s completely ok to not eat ‘perfectly’ all the time (especially as there’s no such thing anyway!). Healthy eating includes candy and chocolate sometimes, and we all have times where the balance gets a bit out. Focusing on nourishing your body and not beating yourself up is a great stance to take. I hope it gets a bit easier soon.

    Also, your new paint looks fantastic!! You did a great job 🙂
