No, I am not lying.

I need a food intervention...

Oh sure I can go pound the pavement for a few miles, but that isn't going to save my ass from the McDonald's burger and fries I just threw down.
Coming from somebody that recently dropped a measly 100  pounds...
Okay that's a joke I know what a big feat that is.
I feel like the way I have acted here recently though you would NEVER knew I did such a thing.
Sure I am working out...
But working out only can help you so much.
I need an intervention.
What do y'all do when you have a house full of people (okay I say that like I have a family of 20 living in my  house) who don't diet.
There are oatmeal creme pies, processed errryyything, and endless amounts of chocolate at an arms length ALL THE TIME.
I did it before.
What happened to me?
With my Half Marathon training officially starting this Thursday...
I have to get my eating in check.
Which brings me to something I wanted to talk to all my lovely readers about.
Do y'all know my home girl Ashdizzle?
Well if not yet then you should.
She is gorgeous, funny, and as sweet as a piece of my pecan pie a la mode.
She posted about doing a possible 24 day Challenge.
She just needs to get enough ladies and/or men interested!
It's not a definite challenge yet.
Obviously she needs to get people to participate!
Who doesn't want to lose weight and hopefully get some workout swagg and some monies in the process?!
I need something to hold me accountable.
I really do.
I think a lot of my extra eating lately has been emotional with everything going on with my Pawpaw, etc.
Dammit that is NO excuse!
^I am pudgy and I feel like crap.
I have no spunk in my step today!
Somebody come kick my ass?!

On our anniversary, I want you to know how much I've enjoyed annoying you all this time & how excited I am to keep doing so in the future...

Dearest Husby,
Just look at us now.
When we met a little over four years ago I knew from that very moment it would just be you and I for the rest of our lives.
Were you convinced right away?
I don't think so but that's okay.
We are here, now, today with two years of marriage under our belt.
Many people always say that first year of marriage is the hardest.
I say the second year of marriage has been quite trying myself.
A very high-risk pregnancy which was very chaotic and stressful leaving us with many nights in the hospital and less money in our pocket.
Still trying to work full-time, take care of our two older daughters, and keep a smile on our face.
Even when I don't want to...
Even on my darkest of days you can still make me smile.
I have never met anyone who can make me want to spit fire one minute and the next minute laugh until my stomach hurts.
People ask me all of the time where I see myself in five, ten, or fifteen years.
Even though parts of my response (job wise, etc.) change one thing always remains the same.
You are always in my equation of life.
I see us together, and happy, hopefully having one the lottery but that's neither here nor there.
If I have you I am a rich person.
Cheers to the next fifty plus years boo!!!

1. If you could do one thing differently in your life, what would it be?
I wouldn't have continually chased that guy all through high school. 
I wouldn't have always thought that I needed a man to survive in life. 
I am gaining my own inner "Sasha Fierce", but it has just taken a lot longer than it should have.
I wouldn't have focused solely on my appearance and all the negative in myself for the past 27 years.
I would have had more confidence.
I would have smiled more and actually meant it...
2. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I get asked this question often and my answer always remains the same.
I see myself happy, financially secure, and many more gray hairs than I care to admit on my head covered up with the cheapest box of hair dye that Kroger has to offer me.
Hopefully still running this blog like my life depends on it, at my goal weight FINALLY, maybe even possibly with a full marathon under my belt?
Ya I just said that...
3. Do you honestly want kids?
 {I got these questions off of Erin's page who obviously doesn't have kids yet}
I always knew I wanted kids.
Being a Mom is something that I can't even begin to describe in words.
It's a love I have never known.
We have three girls.
I always wanted a Mama's boy but I am pretty sure if we tried for a fourth it would still be a girl and I would be Husby-less...
These girls are about all I can handle anyways...
I am one eye roll away from losing my shit at any given moment.
Plus the laundry...
Oh the laundry.
4. What has been the best moment of your life so far?
I can't really pin-point just one because there have been so many.
There are the obvious ones...
The birth of my children...
My wedding day...
But as for recently...
A lot of this has to do with weight loss and getting fine ass healthy.
But I am finally LOVING myself and do you know how good that feels????
Do I hate the stretch marks on the back of my legs???
Do I think my kangaroo pouch looks like a butt in the front???
Do I think I have ugly looking Flinstone feet???
That doesn't mean shit anymore.
I love myself and I want to shout it to the world.
Let me clarify...
I do NOT have a big head at all.
I hate to brag and I used to always think people would see me that way.
If you do then I am terribly sorry.
But for somebody that has hated themselves all of their life it feels so good to feel happy with myself and where I am at.
I still have my days but I am a woman ;)
5. What is your life theme song?
I have so many of these but if I had to pick one...
As corny as it sounds...
I have been running outside downtown during lunch.
There is a point where I have to run up these steps to get to the next block.
^These steps in fact this is what it looks like at night how pretty right?!
I totally get all Rocky Balboa with it and sing the "Eye of the Tiger" lyrics all the way up.
This is towards the end of my run and I am tired but it tends to give me an extra pep in my step.
 6. What is one thing you have yet to accomplish that you want to do before you die?
 Go to college and get a degree.
Nuff said.

7. If you could choose one thing to be known for, what would it be?
 Being able to motivate others to get off their asses and do something with themselves.
We only get one life and why waste it making bad choices for ourselves.
It's time we start loving ourselves and treating our bodies how they should be treated...
With the occasional ten glasses or more glass of wine or beer.

8. If you could do anything you wanted right in this very moment (no consequences, no fear, etc), what would it be?
 Right now my only issue would be those damn dolla dolla bills.
If that weren't an issue I would bundle up my girls Holly, Kimmy, Mel, and Ash and SO MANY MORE OF YOU {too many to name I just know these girls blog addy's right off the top of my head} and we would go to a remote island and live it up for a couple of weeks.
You guys pick me up when I am down.
You guys continue to motivate me on a daily basis and keep me going even when I don't think I can take another step.
You NEVER judge me.
You know where I am in life and it means a lot.

9. What has been the most challenging moment in your life?
 Getting to the spot in my life that I am at now.
The journey to loving me.
It's still a process and will always be a process but I have fought hard to get where I am.

10. Summarize yourself in one word.

Happy Friday doll faces.
I hope everybody has an AMAZING weekend filled with lots of movement and some adult beverages on the side!
