Sometimes I wonder…

Well, it’s raining.  🙂  It’s actually a nice sound right now.  This week was just super long and I am glad it’s coming to an end.  But you have to find something good in everything right??  Character building.

Sometimes I do wonder what people are thinking when they do something.  Their motives.  Their heart.  I just find people curious sometimes.  But then I think that because I notice it I must bare this quality!  🙂

Anyway, long week.  It was super long.  It was so long that even though I am excited that it is Friday, I can’t believe that tomorrow is Saturday.

 

Did you know that it was National Bullying Prevention Month?   It is.

I don’t have children, but I think it’s so important to have an honest discussion about bullying when the time is right.  I think that if you really thought about it, you have been affected indirectly or directly when it comes to bullying.  I can remember growing up and being the “fat” kid.  Oh you name it, I have heard it.  In highschool, I can remember walking down the aisle of desks and for some reason I moved quickly and this guy said, “I didn’t know fat could move that fast.”  I also had a boy on the school bus just come out and ask me, “did you know you were fat?”  Nice right?

These things were harsh and really made me think horrible thoughts about myself, but the bullying today seems so much worse.  I think anyway.  It’s so important to remember that bullying is a learned thing.  What you see and what you are around, you emulate.  Just because someone is different, doesn’t mean that you have to rip them apart.  You also don’t have to bully someone just to fit in with a group of people.  It’s ok to stand up and be the one to say that it isn’t ok.  Because it isn’t.

Remember, you are not alone.  If you are being bullied, find someone to talk to.  A counselor, teacher, parent, friend, grandparents.  There is someone that can help you.

*These are just my thoughts, but I wanted to share them with you*

 

 

Lunch:

 

 

I finished off the chicken patties!!  Yay!!  I also add some lettuce, one slice of cheddar cheese, spicy guacamole, and one slice of whole wheat bread.  1/2 of a banana on the side.

 

 

A little while later I had half and apple and some dark chocolate almond milk from Silk.

 

I just have to work tomorrow and then I am off until Tuesday!  I have lots that I want to do this weekend and getting things semi-organized for a yard sale is one of them.

Gonna chill out for the rest of the night and then go on to bed.  Have a great night!

Working out is a must

I get a lot of questions as to how to stay motivated when it comes working out. First, let me say that I am in no way a personal trainer, or am I educated in the Fitness world enough to give advice.

When it comes to trying to trim up or even just staying healthy, doing some sort of exercise comes along with the program.  My main motivation is that I am a workout junkie and I just love it.  Second, there is a history of heart problems in my family and I want to start now at making wise decisions.  With that said, here is a list of reasons why I love working out:

  • It lowers your risk of high blood pressure
  • boosts the metabolism
  • helps you sleep better
  • lowers your risk of heart disease
  • helps maintain weight
  • makes you feel good
  • self-esteem

God’s word says that our bodies are a temple and we are to treat it as such.  When I put things in my body that are not good or I make unwise eating choices this damages my it.  This one is probably the main reason I love to workout so much.

There are many other reasons as to why I like to workout, but these are the major ones.  🙂

Before dinner last night I was feeling a little hungry so I grabbed a palm full of some Winter Spiced nuts.  They were pretty good. 🙂

I loved last nights dinner!

Salmon, whole wheat penne pasta, and some roasted broccoli.    I usually make my salmon really dry, but it turned out really great and it was really pretty.  I thought it was anyway….;)

Well, a cold has landed on my face.  :/  I have been around a few people who have had similar symptoms, so I was waiting for it to land.  It has.  I went to bed last night at 8:35 p.m. and didn’t get up this morning until 8:30!  I haven’t slept that long in forever!

For breakfast, I wanted something really warm, so I went with some oats…….and coffee. 🙂

I am going to finish up here and finish my cup of coffee and then decide whether or not to workout.  I try to at least workout 6 days a week and I have already had a “rest” day this week, so in my mind I think I should, but what do you think?  Work out or rest?  Do you work out when you are sick? Listening to my body is something that I am still learning to do.

I hope that you have a great day and check ya later!!
