10th Birthday!

Today is my baby girl's 10th birthday. It's a bittersweet thing. I'm completely thrilled that she's happy, healthy and completely normal, but it's also sad that it's going by so quickly.

Doesn't seem that long ago that I was in Baptist Hospital holding my sweet girl in my arms. Now she's very grown and very independent.

I'm very proud of the person she's becoming. She's smart, funny and knows her own mind. She's quickly turning into a person I would so be friends with. For that, I'm incredibly grateful.

Happy Birthday, Doodlebug. Your mom loves you so much!

Hard to deal sometimes...

It's been a wacky week. Learned some things about a situation that I would have preferred to not know... that's the funny thing about knowledge. You can't unknow. You can't go back there. That's the hard part. It was my fantasy... and I liked it. Knowledge is power. It can have a powerful effect for good or for bad.

A New Beginning.

It's been a wacky couple of weeks. Definitely got off track, both in terms of my eating, exercise and spiritual stuff. I've let circumstances dictate me instead of the other way around. I think i was just in severe survival mode. Just getting through it instead of managing my own life.

Today, I got back on track with eating. Back to tracking my points. Went to weigh in. Surprisingly no gain. The fact that I maintained is pretty incredible.

Tomorrow, I'll hit the gym again, and I'll get back to regular devotions.

Gotta do what's right for me in order to take care of everyone else.
