What a Difference a Day Makes!

I woke up today determined to make the choice to be happy…no, THRILLED…about my current situation. I reread my last blog entry and got really pissed at myself. What a fucking cry baby I am! I should be celebrating right now, not lamenting the loss of KFC, Ben and Jerry and Dr. Pepper. I look around me and see so many things to be overjoyed about. I have been very lucky in my life. I am ashamed that the thought of not being able to binge on wings and fries would get me down. I am better than that!

I decided to list the things I am grateful for….and I just had to add some things that annoy me because this all can’t be whimsical.

Things I am Grateful for (in no particular order):
  • Grooveshark
  • The dog park
  • My boobs (I hope I get to keep them!)
  • Target
  • Whey Protein
  • My new car
  • Mommy
  • My beautiful home with kick ass party decks (oh yeah…I have two!)
  • My Boys (please see this under things that annoy me, too)
  • Droid
  • Seattle
  • Fantasy Football (specifically, my QB Aaron Rodgers)
  • My friends and family
  • Sugar free popsicles
  • Bath and Body Works
  • Jimi Hendrix
  • Seth MacFarlane (will he ever know how much I love him?)
  • Pedicures
  • Jenn (these are in order…because I know that bitch’s feet need some attention, too!)
  • Scented candles (anyone who’s been to my house knows this is an addiction)
  • George St. Pierre

Things That Annoy Me (in no particular order)

  • People who use "literally" incorrectly. That, literally, makes me want to stick my pen in my eyeball
  • Any modern pop singer
  • Not trusting a fart
  • People who don’t know how to use the self check-out
  • Teenagers
  • People who use quotes “incorrectly”
  • My Boys
  • People who stop in a merge lane. Fucking MERGE already!!!
  • Texting and driving
  • “Plus size” Halloween costumes
  • People who drop in to see me, but are really only there because the bathroom outside my office is closed for cleaning and they are just really waiting to pee. You don’t fool me. 

I am sure there is more but I really wanted to focus on the positive of the day. I am down 22lbs. I think that number made it all worth it. Now…I can’t WAIT to get make into my full workout routine! I will see that number drop more AND I will fell stronger, sexier and more confident

If I could only trust a fart….life would be perfect.

  2. Dear Kristin,

    As I follow your blog, I find myself motivated to do something for myself so I can feel stronger and more confident. All my life I have been asked "Why aren't you confident?" "Your pretty, smart and a good person." I cringe every time. I just want to tell them the truth, that I had a lawnmower accident at age two that cut my big toe off and part of my foot and leg. It's a scar I have hid with blue jeans and tennis shoes all my life. What I can't hide anymore is the pain. I go to chiropractors, orthopedics, and even attempted prosthetic s to no avail. I was almost to the point of giving up until I read your blogs. I bought a stretch band at K Mart to exercise my foot and leg. so far it's working. Today I noticed more mobility as I walked. I don't want to be able to wear flip flops or high heals but instead to be comfortable in my skin and walking tall.
