Determined.

 
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???
Yes.
Do I think my kangaroo pouch looks like a butt in the front???
Yes.
Do I think I have ugly looking Flinstone feet???
Yes.
BUT...
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?!
Anyways...
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.
But...
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.
 Determined.

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

  5. Love love love this post. I feel like it has taken me too long to get where I am now too but I am so happy that I am here. Just like you said before all of those past experiences (good & bad) lead us to where we are. I often feel like a late bloomer but it feels so good to get to a point in life where I am comfortable and happy. Even though we fell like it took too long to get here there are many others who are not here so keep motivating us and we will keep motivating you! Happy Friday.
