    Lightbulb The Text Message

    I learned something this week, y’all. Apparently, it takes four people to ask my out on a date.

    It started when I received a text from one of my gym buddies…who I had never given my number to. I RARELY give my number out.

    He told me who he was and made some small talk.

    The next day he starts in again. When he realizes I’m at my son’s football game, he offers come keep me company.

    At the game, he tells me the story of the text message.

    He wanted my number, so he got it from the only guy at the gym who had it. That was my friend David. David gives him a series of “instructions” that go with my number. God love him.

    So then the guy, he has my number and is wondering what to text me. Ends up, three of the guys at my gym were standing around brain storming about what to put in the text.

    The ice breaker text.

    And these are buff guys y’all. One of them is a GNC sponsored athlete. I’m talking muscular people here, people!

    And it just makes me laugh to picture it. A big pile of macho guys surrounding one little phone…thinking, contemplating, planning…to send me a text!!

    You know, planning is good. But sometimes you just gotta do what you just gotta do!!!

    Need to start a diet? Don’t think about it. Do it!

    Need to get some cardio in? Don’t contemplate it. Do it!

    Need to go lift today, but not sure if you have time? Stop planning. Go lift, and them come plan the rest of your day.

    Through my years in maintenance, I have seen one thing derail more people than any other thing. And that is thinking TOO long and TOO hard.

    All the times I failed, I was guilty of this.

    I would make meticulous charts and graphs. The big, giant overview of my future physique. And we’re talking LITERAL charts here. Not figurative. Not imaginary! I made actual charts.

    Then a month would come where I didn’t lose according to chart. Or I didn’t get the planned workout in…and it set me on a downward spiral.

    Then I would rush, trying to do things in double time. But I was too far off my plan to get it back. And I would quit.

    Here are the only plans you need:

    Get a good clean diet you can follow, be that NutriSystem, Weight Watchers, or Palumbo’s. They all work.

    Plan to do cardio at least four times a week if you need to lose.

    Plan to lift. And yes, I lifted and lost at the same time.

    So today, if it takes you more time to sit down and plan that it does to actually DO what’s on your plan…let’s get it in check, people. Let’s get it in check!


    But...I really don't know why it takes that many people and that much planning to ask little ol' me out?!

    That's just crazy y'all. That's just crazy.

    From the celtic tune "Caledonia".....especially for GX....

    Caledonia

    I don’t know if you an see,
    The changes that have come over me
    These last few days I’ve been afraid,
    That I might drift away

    I’ve been telling old stories,
    Singing songs
    That make me think about where
    I come from
    That’s the reason why I seem,
    So far away today

    Chorus

    Let me tell you that I love you
    That I think about you all the time
    Caledonia you’re calling me,
    Now I’m going home.
    But if I should become a stranger,
    Know that it would make me more than sad,
    Caledonia’s been everything I’ve ever had

    Now I have moved and kept on moving,
    Proved the points that I needed proving,
    Lost the friends that I needed losing,
    Found others on the way
    I’ve kissed the fellas and left them crying,
    Stolen dreams, yes there’s no denying,
    I’ve travelled hard sometimes with conscious flying,
    Somewhere with the wind


    Chorus

    Now I’m sitting here before the fire,
    The empty room, the forest choir,
    The flames have cooled, don’t get any higher,
    They’ve withered now they’ve gone.
    But I’m steady thinking my way is clear,
    And I know what I will do tomorrow,
    When hands have shaken, the kisses flowed,
    Then I will disappear

    Chorus

    Its pretty simple really....the guy really likes you and doesn't want to get rejected! He wants to make a good first impression, when he asks you out so that you will say yes Adina! And thats kind of sweet....

    So, true to form, when someone no longer wants me around, I walked, and did not look back. So where they are now, I have no idea... but I hope everyone is doing okay
    There is some love for you going on my thread today!!!

    Do you feel it?!?!?!?

    Lightbulb By Choice

    I'm at my best friend's house right now. He's making me and my son pancakes for breakfast.

    He just hollared from the kitchen, "We're going to eat family style today, I hope you don't mind. Even though we're not family"

    We usually just eat around, but he wants us to sit at the table today.

    Without thinking I yell back, "You're my family. My family by choice."

    And he is.

    We aren't given everything we want in this world, but that doesn't mean we can't have it.

    I wasn't born with shoulder caps. I wasn't born with a sleek, sexy, svelte body.

    But I can have these things by choice.

    I can eat clean, lift heavy, and get these things by choice.

    I am in control of the shape of my body. But I have to chose to take control.

    Sitting at home and fretting over not having what I want will not make changes.

    Eating more because I am already overweight won't do it either.

    Skipping the gym because I'm not sure what to do...you guessed it. That won't do it either.

    Every day, you have to choose to do something that will get you closer to where you want to be.

    You won't get there over night, but you can get one step closer every day.

    When I sit down to eat breakfast, that may be a "family by choice" but it is still a family. It is enjoyable. It is who I am.

    Just like when you look in the mirror after months of hard work, you will enjoy your body by choice.

    And it's all good, people. It's all good.

    I LOVE my family by choice.

    I spent a good deal of Friday night in the ER with my best friend's dad. All of the "real" family was out of town...and sitting in that ER with him, I knew he would do the same for me.

    There is little difference in family by choice and real family...either way it's all about the love!!!

    That's neat....I'm glad you have people like that.

    Even though I spent the weekend with my best friend...we had to talk on the phone on my way back. And I would feel lost without him.

    we all have those people. they are there for us whether we know it or not. i have learned to accept them instead of ignore them.

    I actually had to learn that too.

    I used to walk around, head down, wearing my pain like some badge of honor. And yeah, full of pitty for myself.

    But then I realized...my two best friends would fight to the death for me or my sons...and what more can you ask for Dabear? What more can you ask for?

    I was blessed all along. I just wasn't living like it.

    my ego and need to be independent got in the way.

    after my divorce i discovered who my true friends and family were.
