Update on diet

So I was doing quite well till about a week and a half ago when I "fell of the wagon." I am now desperately trying to gain back control and start back to it. I can say that the events that led to my current situation were emotional events that affected my state of mind and I fell back into emotional eating. I am trying to make changes to not fall back to that again but I know it will take lots of self control and hard work. Today is a new day and I plan to live it as such and start fresh!

Book Review: Making Marriage Simple

I received "Making Marriage Simple" by Harville Hendrix and Helen Hunt from about a week ago. I began reading the book almost immediately because as it so happens I was looking for help for my own marriage. I am normally not one to even read a marriage help book because I previously would have considered all of them to be garbage, however, I took a chance anyway and requested this book. Best decision ever! I can't tell you how much every chapter helped me to realize things within my marriage that need to be worked on and even gives exercises after each chapter to do with your spouse so that you may both benefit from what the book has to say. My husband and I are in the process of working on the exercises and hopefully this new found knowledge will improve our marriage and help us to be able to get more out of our relationship with one another. The book was well put together and touched on the important subjects as well as offered interesting insight and humor so that it was serious and lighthearted all in one which made it an easy read. I learned from the book what kind of personality I have when faced with certain situations and also what kind of personality my husband has as well. I am the hailstorm and he is the turtle. This information alone has helped us to be able to work on those issues in a constructive way and not a destructive way as we previously did. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to get married, married, or even in a serious relationship, it is well worth the read.

Read for a good time!

I received this book from a few weeks back and I just finished reading it. It was AMAZING! The book was such a pleasant change up of what I normally read which is sappy romance novels and non-fictions. I absolutely loved the humor and caught myself laughing hysterically on many occasions. If you are looking for a book to add variety to your reading or just looking for a book that you can thoroughly enjoy for fun, then this is the book for you! I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars and hope you will take a look at it too! Happy reading!

Weightloss Journey

I have decided that I need to stop being unhealthy and unhappy and get up off my butt and start living a healthy, happy, life. I'm in full transformation mode and want to be able to keep track of my accomplishments as well as share my journey. There are many emotions running through my head. I am nervous, excited, and anxious to get this party started and take my life by the horns. I hope to be able to look back on this in a year and be proud of all my accomplishments and be happy in my new and improved body. Each day I will write my feelings as well as struggles and triumphs I encounter. Watch out world here I come!!
