It's a Breakfast Club kinda day


Yes I am still alive 
working it working it 
some days are good ... 

but then there's that teany tiny twig 
it's small 
you wouldn't even see it if you weren't looking 
cause I am always focused on the big things 
dealing with the BIG issues, sometimes I miss the small stuff 
and those can sometimes be the most dangerous 
the tiny things 
yep... 
but I don't give up 
always working 
always picking myself up and 
and taking back my power 
sometimes I give my power away 
to people I don't even know 
so dumb, huh??!! 
well nope 
I have it back 
two friends helped me out yesterday
pulled me out of my head
 one knocked some sense into me 
read me the riot act! 
but these are the people I NEED in my life 
keeping it real people 
let's do this! 
yeah baby

today is 3 of 30

day 3 of my own 30 day I promise _____
challenge isn't the right word 
it's not a challenge 
it's me entering into honoring my promises to myself 
so day #1 ... totally rocked it 
kept all my promises 
yesterday 
I worked out 
and this was my food plan 
which I hit 
only thing I ate off this was one EXTRA ounce of Jerky 
and I tried a new milk 
so today is day #3 
pretty much food will be a repeat 
and I am doing just cardio today 
tomorrow is a rest day 
not an exciting post 
but I need this next 30 days to stay accountable 
may be a tad boring 
I will also be doing a daily Facebook live 
as a recap and to also help me through this 30 days 
tootles my noodles 
gotta run

I promise

stay with me on this
your circle, your family... when they give you a commitment
do you expect them to keep said commitment?

"oh let's meet at such and such time and carpool there" 

do you expect them to show up? 
wait for them?
stay with me here... I am going somewhere with this... 

so why do we flake so much and so often on our commitments to ourselves? 
I made a commitment to myself 
live a fit and healthy life 
and I have been keeping that commitment 

ahh for the most part 
and that statement right there 
is OVER 
"for the most part" 
I am making a promise 
a PUBLIC announcement
no more "for the most part" 
no more 
for 30 days 
every day for the next 30 days 
I will work out according to MY plan 
I will eat according to MY plan 
I will read the book I have told myself I "want" to read 
30 days 
I will make it through the next 30 days keeping my promises to MYSELF 
how about you? 
can you do this with me? 
this is not a rah rah pump you up kinda post 
this is REAL 
calculated, thought out, calmly figuring out what is possible 
not "I am going to go run a marathon tomorrow"
... no 
what promises to myself  CAN I keep? 
just that? 
every day for the next 30 days 
I will work out according to MY plan 
I will eat according to MY plan 
I will read the book I have told myself I "want" to read 
30 days 


who's with me?

New to the blog

No more booze
No more regrets
No longer afraid
Not afraid of everyone
Not afraid you’ll laugh 
Because you may judge me
but that’s YOUR judgment
I can now shop in normal stores
Buy clothes online
I don’t have to take my clothes out of the dryer damp so I can stretch them larger
Or hide the food wrappers
Or drink ALL the alcohol
Because gees peas
Why would you buy it and NOT expect me to drink it all?
Or eat it all?
I don’t have to be afraid anymore
Because I truly believe

I believe in sobriety
I believe in exercise
I believe in taking care of myself
It’s NOT selfish
That’s what I USED to think
I had to take care of everyone else
I wasn’t important
They were
I wasn’t
So I drank and ate
And I lost myself

But I am back
And I can do this

So can you
You got this
There is a way back

It’s not too late
I know because I was there
But now I am here

There is a way back

 Believe me
side note... yes I do own nice clothes 
but give me a break... this is pajama time at 4AM 
love, peace and chicken grease 
you got this ma peeps

This weekend was HUGE 
as I broke through a self restricting barrier

obsessing over it
strategizing about it
nuttin to it but to do it

love peace and chicken grease 
YOU GOT THIS!!!
