Choices, choices, choices…

All diets start with a choice. And not just start….there are a continual array of choices. Anyone who has ever tried to lose weight can attest to it. And…it’s not always easy. I lost a ton of weight a few years ago, and a couple months after I started, we had a birthday party for one of our kids complete with cake and ice cream. I did great during the party…didn’t eat a bite, but then it started. I could swear the ice cream was calling my name from the freezer. “Just one little taste. C’mon! A little bite won’t hurt!” Then the fight began. You know the fight…the one in your head where you know you shouldn’t, but you really really want to, but you firmly decide not to, and you try to think of anything else besides that ice cream, but it keeps calling your name, and you resist and resist and resist…..and then you fail. Miserably. And eat the ice cream. Ugh! To reach our potential, we are going to have to make some though choices…

Life is about choices….Remove your slippahs OR scrub the floor!

I live in a small house. A very small house. With 5 people. It wasn’t so bad when the kids were little, but now that they are teens, it seems smaller and smaller. When we have company over, we have to eat in shifts. I was discontent with my kitchen for sure….but my sweet husband got a different perspective…and it changed everything.
