Hi y’all! It has been a few days so I figured I better get a catch-up in here. First of all, I will be co-hosting the #Alittlebitofeverything link-up party with Iveth from fortheloveto.com again this week. Iveth invited me to co-host her link-up party again with her this week! I am so excited because I had such a good time last week, reading blogs and meeting new people. Please, please, PLEASE come link up to our blogs. Iveth is an awesome friend and I know you too will love talking to her and reading her blog! Don’t be shy, come on over and link up! Link will be posted on Wednesday.
Saturday I worked and ended up doing over 3 miles at work so I was done with the walking for the day. Sunday I actually walked and we did 43 minutes 1.88 miles. Sunday we did our regular walk and Annie went with me. That one infernal hill that always gets me, it seemed easier although she said I huffed and puffed all the way up it. But we did it. Yesterday, Monday, we walked down the HUGE hill to my Mom’s house but had my uncle take us back to the top. I am crazy but not crazy enough to try going back up until I get some more weight off. We did 45 minutes and 1.52 miles. Today Jeffrey and I did the same, walked to my Mom’s, with 43 minutes and 1.78 miles. I have been walking late afternoon too. The heat hasn’t been bothering me so that is a good thing. Sunday and Monday both we just got back to the house and a storm hit. It was hissing and blowing yesterday and I went out on the porch and stood in the blowing rain and wind. I was hot! That cooled me off! No storms today. I was a bit disappointed. I wanted to get cooled off faster. Oh well.
I have had a light week this week so I have been able to eat here more. I have gotten my diet under control again and now I think I need to fix the portions. I dread starting something new like that right in the middle of some other changes I am getting ready to make but I think I can do it. I hope I can anyway. The weight is still coming off and I guess I am impatient but I have made so many healthy changes.. I know it is all having a great effect on me. The changes include drinking more water, giving up sugar cold turkey, cutting carbs, cutting out the sweet pop, limiting my diet pop intake, and walking! Walking and the water have been the two that if I was to pick some, I would have thought those would be the hardest ones for me to get used to but I am doing it and doing it successfully. I still love that when I go places I can walk and not huff and puff.
So I have been dealing with some things, most of which I am not going to really name names and places, etc. But I will be as descriptive as I possibly can. I have made some choices lately that I thought were for the best. Turns out they were choices I should have said no to but yet it may propel me in the direction I need to go. I have been wrestling with the fact that I am not the same person as I was previously and if that was causing me the issues, with Jeffrey’s sickness and being saved and going to church. Honestly, yeah, that is a LOT of it. I can’t run from people who don’t think like I do but I sure don’t have to put up with people who are nasty and hateful and treat me bad because of something that I have no clue about. I also want to say that this has nothing to do with my beliefs or anything that I can tell from that angle. This is how I see it: if you have something to say about me, say it to my face, not behind my back. Furthermore, if you are gonna say good/bad things about me in any capacity first, you best be on a “I’ll call/’text/Facebook you” level because if you ain’t friends enough to have a way to get a hold of me, you don’t have any business talking about me. This may sound and mean and hateful but for real, find another game. I don’t have time for high school drama. If your stuff is that boring that you to flap about everyone else, well, I am sorry. But don’t mess here. I have been through a lot, I have seen a lot, and the things that I think were once important, ain’t no longer. Don’t waste my time and yours starting a bunch of stuff that has no merit to it. In other words, “He who is without sin cast the first stone.” Yes I am saved and go to church and it takes all I have not to tell these people exactly what I think but I have been successful at keeping quiet. I have to remember that I am representing my church and God. That is one of the best reasons I can think of to keep a calm and level head. And again, I am.
Now that I am off that soapbox I do have some things going on, things that I will mention eventually, all of which will be good. In the meantime, school starts back next week and I start working on the major project so I am sure that will be interesting. Say a little prayer for me that these things get fixed. In the meantime, I am beat and need to finish my blog for the link-up and do dishes. Have a great night, y’all! Don’t forget the link-up tomorrow!
