Things You Don't Expect To See

Sunday, my husband and I went to the grocery store to stock up on things we needed for the next couple of weeks. We were in the produce sections getting some apples when I happened to look down and this is what I saw.......

I could not believe my eyes. First of all it is gross that someone would eat an apple and leave it there. Second it is rude to do that and not pay for it. But it was kind of amusing to see an apple core just sitting there out in the open like that.

Journey to Better Health/Weight Loss

Yesterday began my journey to better health and weight loss. Over the past year I have really let myself go and have not taken care of my body the way I should. The thing that first prompted my need for change was when I noticed my pants were fitting tight. This caused me to realize that something must be done. While I am not overweight, I am nearing the top of what would be considered normal body weight for my height. It is startling to look on the scale and see that I weigh more than I ever have. This to me is not cool. And this calls for a change. As part of this change I have decided that I am going to exercise more, be more conscious of what I am eating, and drink more water. My goal is to lose about 17 pounds. I think if I did that I would feel better about myself and that I would feel a lot better.
So yesterday I began by documenting everything that I ate. Also I walked 30 min during my lunch break. After walking I could already start feeling a little bit better. My hope is that as I continue this journey I will continue to feel better, have more energy, and feel better about myself.

Sometimes and Always

Sometimes....there are mornings where I wish I could stay in bed just a few more hours.
Always....I know I must get up and go to work.

Sometimes....I hate the traffic in the mornings when school is back in session.
Always....I love how the campus comes alive with all the students are back.

Sometimes....I wonder how I got so lucky to have such a wonderful, amazing husband.
Always....I know God must have known exactly what he was doing when he put the two of us together. I could not imagine life with anyone else.
Sometimes....I wish I had more time to do the things I love.
Always....I know one day I will have more time to pursue my hobbies.

Sometimes and Always

Sometimes....I love photographing waterfalls.
Always....I wish I had more time to go out and photograph.

Sometimes....I wish I could have a baby right now.
Always....I know that we have to wait until my husband finishes school. Sometimes the waiting is really hard.

Sometimes....There are days when I wish I had more time for myself.
Always....I know I need to stop being so busy and make time for myself.

Sometimes....I get so bogged down with work that I think I want to quit.
Always....I know that things will calm down soon. There is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Sometimes and Always

Sometimes....I think it would be so cool to hike the entire Applicachan Trail.
Always....I remember how difficult it would be and that I do not have six months to devote to it.

Sometimes....It makes no sense to me why people commit such horrific acts.
Always....It reminds me of how short life is and that I should cherish each day that God allows me to live.

Sometimes....I despise the heat outside!
Always....I would much rather it be hot than to be freezing cold.

Sometimes....I have days where I wish I could go ahead and retire.
Always....I know that is not economically possible, so I continue on one day at a time.
