Weekends are hard!

Reflecting back over the weekend, it has occurred to me that weekends seem to be more difficult for me than the rest of the week.  I guess it's because all of the family is home and there is really no set time to eat or workout.  Sadly, when DH and I tried to hit yoga over the weekend, he though I was watching the clock and I thought he was.  This meant when he realized what time it was, we didn't have time to get to class.   When I was working, I had a schedule and would have my meals and snacks generally at the same time each day.  I also had a specific time to workout.  Unfortunately, since I have been unemployed, I haven't had a schedule like that to stick to.  I am trying to get back into a schedule for my own peace of mind and waistline! I'm a woman determined to get back on track and continue with the positive changes.  Make those positive changes habits.  Does anyone else have the same problem about staying on track on the weekends?  I'm definitely open

Am I just ordinary?

You are *anything* but ordinary. - Ellis Grey, Grey's Anatomy I have been  watching old episodes of Grey's Anatomy, starting with Season 1.  I recently saw the episode where Meredith dies and she sees Denny and the bomb squad guy and her mom's scrub room nurse and her dog, Doc.  They are all telling her that she needs to go back, but she's not listening because she's not ready to yet.  She needs to deal with what is going on in her head before she goes back and part of that is hearing her mom, Ellis Grey, who was a force to be reckoned with at Seattle Grace and any other hospital, tell her that she was ordinary.  I can't imagine how that would feel.  My mother didn't raise me to be just ordinary.  The Father above didn't create me to be just ordinary.  I am special.  I am one of a kind.  There is no one on this earth exactly like me.  Sometimes I think we just need a reminder that we are not simply ordinary.  We are extraordinary.  The Father created us

Moving into 2013...Challenges for myself

I saw this on FB and started thinking about it a little bit.  I know I am a child of the King.  He has great plans for me, even though I may not know what those are.  No matter what struggles I may face, the war is already won.  Jesus loved me enough to die on a cross for me.  What an amazing love that is! The other thing that I thought about is that I haven't really been making the best choices for myself lately.  I've only been given one body.  With only one body, I should be taking better care of it than I am.  With that in mind, I am trying to take steps to take better care of me.  Ultimately, I want to lose 52 pounds this year.  However, what I realized from this year is that I need to take each day as it comes and focus on that day.  I can plan my meals in advance, but I also realize that life gets in the way sometimes and I need a back-up plan just in case.  If I take it one day at a time instead of focusing on the bigger goal, I can handle it without getting ove
