Reflect

As I sit here tonight, I can’t help be think about what my life has been like. I reflect upon things that make days like today so special for me. It is Veteran’s Day. My husband is one of these and then some. Many of our friends and basically family but friends are veterans.  I can get super emotional on days like today. It is so easy. I can feel the emotion in all the pictures of people kissing loved ones fresh home from deployment. Surprise homecomings. Sad pictures of grave stones. I can feel it. It sits in my throat. Only because every one of these situation shave occurred, or could occur in my lifetime to me personally.

Today is also pretty cool as I sat for Facebook updates of a friend who was waiting the arrival of her new baby.  Family by way of the military. She is born into a family of dual military. Not to mention the long line of military family beyond that. How cool is that?

I don’t have many words – as I wrote what was on my heart last night:

This means he’s home. They could be covered in dirt, stink, and grime – but it means he’s home. For the 4 deployments he has been away, these boots mean he’s home. These boots mean everything to me. These boots are worn for more than just me and my girls. They are for every American citizen who appreciates their freedom. Thanks boys – I love you all that have become a part of my heart one moment at a time. I will never be able to tag or thank you all for the blessings you have been to me. Your families are now part of mine. Lance, Arch, Ryan, Erik, Jesse Ray, Pat, Sean, Mario, Minnick, Kniskern, Angel, Tony, Greg, Tervis, Remy, Johnny, Forbes, and so many more. To each of you and your loving families I adore – thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Currently

Currently I have a child in my seat while I stand typing this. This should be interesting.

Today I felt like utter crap. I napped for like 4 hours.

I am loving to eat loaded potatoes. I am talking cheese, butter, sour cream, bacon, and butter. So not good for my arteries – but delicious none the less.

R1JoyISOWrapPWSI am having a hard time making my Scentsy order – I love this stuff, but will I even get to enjoy any this holiday season while packing upon us?

centre422x622I am diffusing Centre from Simply Aroma in my room while I type. I have never been one of “those people” but I am a believer with each new oil I try.

My Younique lashes were the best they have ever been today. I rock for sure.

Sweet Tea. I can’t wait to drink the real thing everywhere I turn in Georgia.

0679888500I have not been able to find a good adult book that holds my attention lately. I have resorted to children’s chapter books. Don’t judge. I am currently reading “Sammy Keyes and the Skeleton Man” by Wendelin Van Draanen.  I am digging it.

PumpkinWEBLemongrass Spa – pumpkin everything. So all natural it has an expiration date on it. Awesome.

I am now sitting down. Score!

I am making notes for a team call. My team is on fire and I am so proud of their success. I am glad they are taking to heart the name of my team – Dare To Succeed.

I have one little one who is fighting sleep – poor baby.

Time to get off of here and get some more work done.

What Do You Do

What do you do when things need to change and you don’t exactly know how to change them? I say you take a leap of faith and just do it.  I mean why not? The only way you are going to find out if something will work or will not is to try, right?

I have been struggling with weight loss recently. I even went so far as to have a doctor’s appointment and they told me nothing was wrong. I know part of my problem is that I have become so busy that I have tried to make things easier on me, while at the same time making it harder.

I used to drink black coffee – now I drink 2-3 creamer filled coffees. No bueno.

I drink soda – no bueno.

I eat what is around – no bueno.

I used to run 3 miles every morning – now I just do what I can and when I can- no bueno.

The buck stops here. Tomorrow starts my accountability and ability to get things back under control like it once was.  I may not have all the support that I used to – but I will not let my issues defeat me.  I will win this war that is within myself.

I am not going to sit here and say I will drink 1,000 ounces of water, or run 5 miles everyday but Sundays, or that I will meal prep and eat salad everyday. Nope – not going to frustrate me before I start. I want to go about this the right way.

One of my fears that is right upon me – is that I have to see my mother in about 8-9 weeks. She always makes it a point to talk about my weight and if I have packed some pounds or not. I am not in the frame of mind where I can laugh it off and shoot her a smart mouthed remark back. It might actually break me this time.  I can’t handle it.  I don’t want to have to even deal with it.

I am going to just do the best I can and get myself to a healthy frame of mind and go with it.

Anyone want to come with me?
