4: finally getting a move on getting things done

It has been a busy weekend. Sean and I moved our bed, clothes and bathroom stuff over to his grandmother’s house. We spent our first night last night. My babygirl was so excited she didn’t know what to do with herself. It makes me so happy to see how complete she feels with us around. Sean wondered for a minute (before the move) if Andrea would really be excited, but I told  him that Andrea thrives having all of her family surrounding her. She loves being with us all, and now we’re going to be together all the time! Wonder how fast it will take for the excitement to wear off! (lol)

Other than it being a successful move, so far (still have a few things over at my mom’s), it has been a pretty unsuccessful healthy weekend. I feel pretty bad for letting myself go because it only takes a few days to ruin weeks worth of work, but sometimes you just gotta roll with the punches of the day. I have to laugh at myself for that thought. It is such a horrible excuse for making bad decisions. Last night I read a quote on Facebook that really stuck in my brain. “You can’t make the same mistake twice, the second time around it’s no longer a mistake, it’s a choice.”

For instance, yesterday for lunch we had Taco Bell. I had a XXL Grilled stuffed burrito (which killed my tummy later) and two of the greasiest hard tacos I had ever seen in my life, even for Taco Bell. Then for dinner the whole family went down to Ruby Red’s for dinner. I had a steak burger (6 oz) and fries, which I didn’t eat all of because I started getting a migraine…probably triggered by the Taco Bell. I get one, 1, O-N-E, cheat meal a weekend..and so far I have had 3! Three! It’s not funny, but I really do have to laugh at myself. Old habits die hard, yet eventually they have to die. I have to keep reminding myself that I always have a choice, and I can’t complain if I am at fault for the results.

Tomorrow starts a new week. A new week to eat right, exercise and to finally buckle down on my relationship with God. I told you that I have to schedule everything, and that relationships take effort and time. I want to take advantage of an early morning devotional and prayer time. Honestly, if I don’t do it first thing in the morning, it will never get done. Too many distractions through out the day to think that I can squeeze time for prayer and Bible reading. Besides, I want God to have my full attention. I don’t want to have to keep looking at my cell phone clock, hoping that no one is looking for me or waiting for me. I want stillness, quiet and God. I haven’t really looked forward to those things in a while. So it will be beautifully interesting to see how it all goes down.

    Girl,

    I am so so proud of you. I am going to state this in the most polite way…I will cut you if you ever eat TACO BELL again. LMAO!!!! Take that back ….there are ways to eat healthy anywhere just not that way. KEEP ON MOVING!

    Thank you, Adrianne
