Skinny Is As Skinny Does

I had an epiphany this week. It really isn't profound or anything but for me it is monumental! As I have struggled to get off the 5 to 7 pounds that I put back on I was confronted with several truths. I like to eat. I like eating sweet things. I like salty things. I feel guilty when I over eat, but not guilty enough to do anything about it the next time around. I don't like how I feel when I stuff myself.
As I chew madly on a piece of gum, I am making a choice. A choice to listen and remember those truths. See, I like how I felt before those 5 to 7 pounds reattached themselves to me. I liked how I looked in my black bikini this summer on the beach. I got there through hard work and smart choices.
If I want to be that girl again, then I have to live and eat like that girl. I have to eat healthy foods, not crap. I have to not over eat. I have to chew a piece of gum since I am not hungry but I really want a piece of cold pizza to "snack on" before and while I cook dinner (which I would still eat, even after eating a piece of pizza).
I will be able to enjoy treats, in small portions, and not every day (much less every meal). But I will do the treats the right way...eating my favorites and really tasting and savoring them.
If I want to be that bikini girl, then I have to live like that bikini girl. After all, skinny is as skinny does.

My sister in law is having a c section today, about now I believe. We can't wait to me our niece, and finally know her name! Unfortunately, the boys both have colds so I am not sure when I will be able to meet her. But, we are still so excited!!! We love you little one!!!

Savannah Trip

My mom and I took a trip with the boys to Savannah, GA to see my grandfather for his 81st birthday. We had a great visit with him! And, we even got to do a little site seeing. My mom grew up in Savannah and we visited every summer when I was growing up, but we never went very many places.
We went to the Roundhouse Museum. It is a train museum, which the boys loved! I did too! We got to ride on a steam locomotive and even go on the turn table! Way cool! We had a great time wandering around, climbing on trains and even working the pump car. My aunt and cousin were able to join us also! Here is a collage of our pictures from the trip (just click on it to enlarge it). If you ever get a chance to head down there, it is a must see!
