Getting Healthier

I am finally working on one of my goals for the year. My husband and I joined a web site called Spark People. You can keep track of your calorie intake, calories burned, how much water you drank that day and so on and stuff. Its pretty cool. You can make your own profile page kind of like myspace, but everyone there is trying to lose weight or keep it off. Tonight we went and joined a gym. I am a little sore, but I bet it will be worse tomorrow. Today is the second day without any soda. This morning I had juice then the rest of the day has been water. I am trying to not have any soda but its harder than you think. One of my goals is to write in a journal every day so this will be my journal.

What Happened to Manners?

On Wednesday my family went to the Fort Worth Zoo. It was my hubby, my mother in law, my brother in law, and myself. We had a good time for the most part. It was crowded because it was half price day. We had no clue they did this half price or we would have waited to go Thursday or today.

I want to start this week on a positive note. It is always good to take a step back from your life and count the ways you have been blessed. If you do not know how you have been blessed then how can you appreciate your blessings? Here are some of ways  I am blessed.

  1. I have a wonderful husband who supports me without question.
  2. My parents are always here when I need them.
  3. My Dad  is finally getting stronger and healthier now that he is through with chemo.
  4. I have a stable life which I can count on.
  5. My husband and I are happy.
  6. My husband is very loving.

Happy St Patricks Day


I wanted to wish everyone a very Happy St. Patricks Day. I hope you have your green on.


Do you know you are loved by Christ? He loves you and me and everyone around us. He wants to be there for all of us. All you have to do is accept him and believe in him. Pray to him you are troubled. He wants you burden him with your troubles. You do not have to bear them alone.

That if you confess with your mouth,  “Jesus is Lord,” and you believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is your mouth that you confess and are saved. Romans 10:9-10

Courtroom TV Shows

  What do you think of these courtroom TV shows? Personally, I can not stand them. How many more can they put out? It seems like every time I turn on the TV there is another show. It seems like are the only thing on in the late afternoon or late at night. These shows are so darn annoying. People will do or say the stupidest crap to have their 15 minutes of fame. Why would you want to go on national TV and air all your dirty laundry??

Weird Place and Goals

I am in a really weird place. I am happy, yet I am sad. I got plenty of sleep, yet I feel so tired.  I just ate and I am full yet I feel empty. I have a great life, but it is not good enough. I want more. I need more. I am bored. I want to have a life yet I am letting my fear stop me from getting the life I want. Why can I not get over my fear? I feel like it is eating me alive. I have goals that I would like to accomplish this year but I have made no progress on them yet.

  2. Get my GED
  3. Lose this weight that I have
