Conversation #92: Do Better Mondays

So I’m not signed up for a Weight Watchers subscription anymore, but I still track my points in the little book each day and bought the point companion books and calculator and I may do this for the rest of my life.  I’m sure at some point it will become second nature.

Anyway, I figure I shouldn’t call it a Weight Watchers update anymore because I will at some point get these last 3.5 pesky pounds off and reach my goal.  However, I still want to track my goals to healthy living to hold me accountable.

On Sundays before church I’ll watch Fox News and they have a segment with Dr. Rosenfeld.  He always gives a health tip to start the week off right and do better this week than last.  That kind of stuck with me one week (no tip in particular, just that I can start the week over and do better).  My WW week starts on Sunday so I figure Monday is a good day to write my goals for the week.  Also, I have a bachelorette party weekend coming on Friday so I won’t to make sure and be good this week so I can splurge on Saturday.

My goals for the week:

I stepped up to level 3 of The Shred this week so keep doing that each morning (today through Friday).

Incorporate more dairy into my food this week – I used to drink a ton of milk but cut back on Weight Watchers.  Now I want to incorporate it back in because I know it is important.  Therefore, I need to get better at giving up some of my little treats during the day.  It is all about priorities baby!

Finally, I hope to lose 1 pound this week (okay really 2, but I’m trying to be realistic with a bachelorette party coming up).

So, what are you going to do better this week?

Conversation #114: Wardrobe Checklist (and retail detox update)

I read something a while back that sort of spurred me into thinking I needed to do this whole retail detox thing.  I'm just going to get it out there - it has been way hard for me and I'm super embarrassed and disappointed by that.  I did well for the first two weeks, and then I got into this buying and returning things habit because I felt bad after buying it.  I told myself that I could still buy things, but only with extra money I earned from ebay.  That worked for a while too, but then I caved to the Lands' End Canvas sale last weekend.  I bought three tees, a skirt, and a cardigan.  I think that all but maybe one tee will be going back and hopefully I can stop this extra shopping. 

Okay, back to the "thing" I read...

It was an article in Real Simple magazine targeted at helping you never buy the wrong thing again.  It has great tips in it, and the wardrobe checklist it includes really brought it all back home to me.  I started going through the checklist an…

Conversation #205: About Me

Hello!

I have no idea how often I will escape to this place, but since I recently added this ol' blog address to my Instagram Profile, I thought maybe I should dust her off and welcome any new readers.

I have so many thoughts rolling around in my head CONSTANTLY that maybe this would be a good spot again to release them, and keep me from online shopping too much during my lunch break ;)  I hear a faint AMEN from my husband.

Anyway, the title of my blog may lead people to make snap judgments about me or my beliefs, which is unfortunate, but also the society we live in at the moment.  First, it created a sort of catchy blog name, and I liked it.  And, yes, I am a conservative, but that label has sooooo many different meanings depending on what media outlet you last listened to so I thought maybe I would use this post to re-introduce myself to old friends and share a bit about how I have grown in the last few years.

I am Christian, Jesus Follower, Believer, Daughter of the King - w…

Conversation #203: So I married my mom

I don't know if people say this to men, but I heard a lot while growing up that girls tend to marry someone like their dad (I guess good, bad, or ugly).  I don't know how true that really is, but relatively early on in our marriage, my husband and I realized I married my mom.

This doesn't mean my husband is feminine or my mother masculine, but to say that they seem to be the same person.  I am definitely more like my dad personality wise so it probably make sense that I married someone more like my mom.  Now I will say my mom, being an actual woman, generally makes her a bit more empathetic and understanding to the eccentricities of being a woman.  I don't think any man, my husband or otherwise, will ever be able to understand the intricacies of being a woman. However, I also feel like he can talk to my mom, and being that they have both lived with me and seem to speak the same language,  can benefit from her wisdom and knowledge of co-habitating with me and enlighten …
