If I wore a pedometer Sunday the amount of steps would have been around 300.
I am more than okay with that. Our bodies truly need a ‘rest’ day.
By Sunday I am ready to sleep in, hang out with my main squeeze, go to church and spend the evening sipping homemade chicken noodle soup.
P.S. those are also homemade rolls. Aunt Laura, you rock.
She also made peach and blueberry cobbler aka heaven on a plate. Butter and sugar were meant to be put together and eaten with ice cream.
On a random note…….
Billy taught me an important lesson today, I really thought about it for awhile.
Today before we left for dinner:
Me, “Billy why do you have to be so hot?”
Billy says with a huge grin on his face, “I don’t have to be so hot, I choose to be hot.”
Billy is opposite of cocky but he taught me two things from our silly dialogue.
1. A lot of times when someone compliments me I reply with something like, “I am actually kind of feeling fat today after eating 4 packages of reeces pieces, I haven’t washed my hair in three days and I don’t remember the last time I brushed my teeth,” rather than saying, “thank you,” and actually believing it.
Why is it so hard as women to accept the fact that someone is genuinely telling us something awesome about ourselves?
Why is it so easy to compliment everyone else but think we aren’t worthy of such compliments?
2. The word CHOICE. Billy is the best example of choosing to be happy. He chooses to like himself. He could focus on the negative but he chooses to make the best of everything. We all have that choice no matter what our circumstance is.

Loving ourself is MORE important than how many miles we log this week and how ‘clean’ our diet is.
Oh yeah, and the winner of the homemade carmel apples goes to ……… (Sorry no video, I used random.org, I thought two videos within 24 hours would be a little ridiculous).
Kayla and Trent Romney. Her favorite type of carmel apple is, “Caramel with white chocolate and cinnamon sugar! Mmmm blissful.”
Wahoo girl…..Email me your address and I will make my drivers ed student drive me to the post office today:)
Leaving you with a picture of me riding my aunts ginormous dog. The dog looks sad but she really had fun, I promise.
How are you going to choose to love yourself today? Please, everyone leave a comment so that we can have lots of good ideas to use:)
-I am not going to watch shows at the gym today (i.e. E Hollywood, America’s Next Top Model etc) that tell me I am not good enough. I am going to watch, read and listen to things that RAISE me up.
-When Billy tells me I look good today (like he always does, he is a winner) I am going to say and THINK, you betcha….I am looking mighty FINE today:)
