A few updates

Well, this probably won't be too long tonight.  I am truly just here tonight to update you about a few things.  I think I have written about them, so this shouldn't be too hard.  However, I will do my best to give you some background info so you won't have to jump back and forth between blogs...even though I can assure you that you will enjoy what you are reading!  

First thing - getting back on this eating right track has been easier than expected.  I am actually planning out meals and sticking to the plan! Absolutely awesome, right?  Just to remind you, I am using the app LoseIt (@loseit) to help me count calories.  It has been the best app for me and if they wanted me to, I would endorse them.  I haven't been on the scale yet because I have learned to only weigh myself once a month (I do it at the beginning of the month), but I don't expect a huge change right now.  If you are wondering why I don't weigh myself more often, it's because I don't want to…

The bright side

I seriously was hoping that I had a photo to share with this post (which is why I didn't write it yesterday), but that didn't happen.  So, instead, I will just share what I experienced and how much I loved it!  

I think you all know how much I love bright colors.  It's not a big secret at all.  Yes, I'm a thick girl, but my curves are wonderful and deserve to be in something other than black all the time (or any other dark color).  Well, this story happened yesterday and it simply made me smile.  

Yesterday, I decided to rock a pair of my bright pants to the office.  To be exact, the color of the pants were yellow.  I was standing in line at our little "diner" at work to get breakfast and the lady that works in the other area came over the talk to me.  She said, "When I saw the pants, I knew it had to be my girl.  You are always so bright and have a smile on your face".  Yes, she said a lot, but that made me feel so awesome.  

First, she loves the fact…

Body Talk

I have no clue why this happens, but I seem to experience a writing drought around this time every single year.  Seriously, you can check it out.  It just never fails.  I've tried to figure it out, but I don't have a reason for you.  

Maybe it is because it is the summer and this time of year in the area where I live, it is absolutely miserable here.  Well, at least for me it is.  Everyone else might be cool with this triple digit heat, but it isn't for me.  Or could it be that it's the downward slope of the year and I'm already thinking about the direction of my writing for the next year and I'm already trying to come up with my year end post.  Woah!  

I could keep going, but there is really no point.  However, the writing bug is here tonight.  

I try to be transparent when I write.  I mean, there is really no point in reading these if I am not going to be honest with you.  So, I'm about to have a very transparent moment with you right now.  

Carefully choosin…
