Honestly, I would probably do it for the fries, depending on the day and how hungry I am […]

Do you tend to forget to stop and smell the roses?  Or do you get so bogged down with the unhappy parts of life that you forget to counter-attack that negativity with things you love.

I find myself forgetting to do this often, and I am not afraid to admit it.  I am human, and I have flaws; one of them is falling into the “Negative Nancy” trap at times.  I know sometimes I just want to have a bad day.  I want to wallow in my misery and be upset about where I am in my life and dream about what I want and be mad about why I can’t have it right now.  Everybody does it sometimes, and if you don’t, I need your secret!  But, on other days, I try to remember to make an effort to count every blessing.

So, I know I haven’t touched base with it on my blog lately, but my fitness journey is still going strong.  I haven’t been perfect by any means, but I am beginning to find my love for working out again, and it makes things so much easier.  I have also kept strong to drinking at least 1 gallon of water a day.  There have been some days where I fall off a bit, I get busy at work and realize that I am behind schedule with my drinking, but for the most part, I am taking in at least a gallon or more, which is awesome.

Usually, when I workout, i do minimum 30 minutes cardio a day.  Sometimes i break it up (15 before, workout, 15 after) or i knock it all out before or after.  I try to make it a requirement for each gym session, but lately, I have gotten a little lax.  I do my cardio on the treadmill, and it’s getting pretty boring these days.
