Happy Birthday Husband!

 

I love my husband.  This pretty W is in honor of him.  His name is Walter.  I call him Walder.

Walter is the greatest, like Muhammad Ali.

I baked him a Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting for his birthday.

We are going to Red Lobster later.  That’s his favorite restaurant.

A good day for a good man.  I thank God for him. He was meant to be my husband.  And, his love is better than ice cream.  Better than anything I’ve ever tried.  :)

Not being the first person to run to the kitchen when sweets are put out

 

I work in an office where people are always sharing food.  People bring in cakes.  They put out muffins, scones, and croissants, like there ain’t no tomorrow.  It’s hard n a girl who likes to eat.

I’m trying to avoid the kitchen area but it takes much strength.

And when I get an email saying “Goodies in the kitchen!” I’m trying not run the 100 yard dash getting over there.

Sweets, I will resist you!

 

Why I’m A Steelers Fan When I Don’t Really Like Football

 

For me, football is not just about the sport. It’s about family, tradition, food, team spirit and community.

One reason I am a Steelers’ fan is because of my Dad.  My Dad was a Cowboys fan but he was from Wheeling, WV which is about 50 miles from Pittsburgh.  Most of his family in Wheeling are Steelers Fans.  My brother, a die-hard Cowboys fan does not understand this logic.  But any fan knows that fan is short for fanatic and fanatics don’t have to be rational.

Go Steelers!  :)

Get back up on the horse

No matter what you are trying to do, life is a series of screw ups.  It’s full of triumphs too.  But when you mess up, get up, brush yourself off, learn from your mistakes and move on.

If you mess up, it’s not end of world. God doesn’t expect perfect. He expects you to keep trying.

 

An irrational sense of hopefulness

 

Stress and uncertainty give us an opportunity to become something more than we expect, if we are open to it.  Hope can keep us sane and happy.  I aim to be guilty of an irrational sense of hopefulness!

 

i choose me

I choose me. I choose thinner. I choose my health. I choose to feel good. I choose to use restraint. I choose not to eat junk. I choose to be in control. I choose to be disciplined.  I choose to stick with this. I choose not to be a human Yo-Yo. I choose to keep my weight down. I choose me.
