The Girl

My daughter (The Girl) is growing up to be too much like me.  I am both proud and scared.  Proud because she has an awesome sense of humor.  Scared because it looks like some day she’ll be more sarcastic and daring than I am!!

The other day while we were out shopping and spotted this shirt and INSISTED on buying it.

I love it and would have bought it for myself if I had seen it first!!

 

Then she begged me to buy her this kitten shirt.  So not me.  Way better!!

So much awesome in such a little package.  I’m glad she picked me out of all of the possible parents in the world!!

Happy Hump Day

Happy hump day!  Half way through the halfway part of the week. The first few days back after vacation are always the hardest, and with the added pressure of getting healthy, I’m so ready for the weekend!!

There are 360 days left in the year, 354 shopping days until Christmas, and 143 days until summer break. Just thought I’d throw that out there for you!

Enjoy your hump day, either alone or with a friend. With a friend is usually more fun though!!

The rest of my life starts tomorrow

The rest of my life starts tomorrow.

 

That’s how I plan on looking at it.  I have been overweight the majority of my life.  It hasn’t bothered me or slowed me down until recently.  I’m tired of feeling like I’m missing out.  I’m tired of feeling left behind.  I’m tired of being tired.  I’ve tried eating better.  I’ve tried getting more exercise.  I’ve tried having a positive attitude, but it just hasn’t worked.

 

So this time I’ve decided to take a dramatic step.  I ordered from a popular weight loss program.  It took me months to bite the bullet and click the order button.  Why spend the money on something I could most likely do at home?  Something I could research on the internet?  Because I feel that by spending the money on a program, I will be more inclined to work at making a better body for myself.  I will be more inclined to get off my ass and get moving!!

 

Why am I telling all of you this?  Because I thought that maybe by sharing with my small audience I can accomplish two things.  One – I will have a few more people supporting me who will help hold me accountable and two – maybe I can inspire someone to get up and get moving.

 

I have a long way to go and I know that it won’t happen overnight, but this time I am determined to get it done.  Follow my journey here and follow my on Facebook at Life In Sarcasm.

 

I am planning on blogging here more this year and continuing with my little blurbs on life.  I hope you stick around and enjoy … and maybe you’ll feel inclined to share me with your friends.

 

Here’s to a wonderful 2016.
