One Year of Prep - Day One

Good Evening Loves!

Okay, so I know this is like number 500 times that I have changed the name of this blog... LOL!! I know - I know... But that's the cool thing about blogs, you can change it up!

So how is everyone? I pray all is well. I'm doing pretty well; my son is out of town for the summer with his father, so that has been amazing. Not having to cook, or clean up after anyone but myself! Yes, thank You Jesus for fathers!

So, a few years ago I felt like the Lord wanted me to take some time off of the dating scene. Like, I needed to spend some time working on me. Well, needless to say I was disobedient, and never stopped dating.

They weren't sexual relationships, but if I didn't want to go to the movies alone, I would call someone up. If I got invited to dinner, I would go. And I never took that time off to really learn to enjoy me. So here we are in 2013, and I feel a strong urge in my spirit again to take time away from dating. And this time I am going to do it!

And guess what... I am bringing you all along for the ride! (Can anyone say "riding shot gun")!?! LMBO

So, today is day one and I'm feeling really good about doing this. This is a time where I get to spend alone with me and God, and not be distracted by text messages, emails, or phone calls from the opposite sex. I will also make it a point to check in with you all, and let you know how things are going. The good, the bad and the super ugly!

I can't promise that I will do a blog every single day, but I will check in as much as possible. :-)

And listen, if anyone wants to take a year off with me, let me know. I will be happy to go on this journey with you.

Now, even though the beginning of this was to take a year off from dating, but it goes so much deeper than that. During this year of preparation, I have some goals that I would like to achieve. So we will be discussing more than just men (or the lack there of) this year. 

I'll be sharing my goals with you over the next few days, so stay tuned...

Okay my loves, until next time Be Good… Live Life… And above all else… Be Unusual!

Why Do We Settle for Less...

"I live in quiet desperation every day of my life. Wishing that I could be rescued from this misery I call life. If feels like no one understands me. Not my family, not my friends, not anyone.

I feel like I am trapped in my life, and I can't break free. I have dreams and aspirations, and they all feel like they are ten thousand miles away. I just don't know what to do. I'm currently in a relationship that is far beneath what I deserve, but yet I can't live without him. And it doesn't really matter, because if it wasn't him, it would be someone else.

It's been that way my entire life. Giving all of myself to a man, and getting nothing in return. Giving my body, giving my time, and anything else that is asked of me. At the end of the relationship, when all of my sacrifice has gone unappreciated, I am left with another injury to my soul.

Same story... Different man... Who's Next!?! Who can draw me even further aw…

One Year of Prep - Day Five

Good Evening Peeps,

Wow, has it been five days already? I kind of had a rough weekend you guys. I have been eating everything in sight. I had an extremely boring weekend, and apparently that's all I can think to do. :-(

I didn't have much going on this weekend; I had a meeting yesterday morning which didn't last very long. And the remainder of the day I laid in bed watching television and eating. Who does that!?! Oh, I do.. That's who!

I had great intentions, I just didn't follow through. So, losing weight is one of my goals this year. I would like to lose about 70lbs. So starting tomorrow, I am making a commitment to myself, all of you, and God to only eat when I am physically hungry.

If I don't get this eating thing under control now, I am going to be 300lbs before I know it. No offense to anyone reading this, and weighs that much. But for me and my life, the life God called me to live - being that big is a no go.

I actually want to be skinny. About 135lbs…

Why Do Skinny Women Get More Respect...

Okay, let me first start off by saying, I do not think like Monique. I love skinny women. I aspire to be skinny again one day. Who am I kidding, I wasn't skinny... LOL! I was a size 8, and that was comfortable to me. And being a size 14 now, I would pay good money to be a size 8 again. I would probably commit a crime, to be a size 8 again. Kidding, I wouldn't commit a crime.. Or would I.. Hmmmmm :)

Anywho, what brought this on was, my calendar is getting super busy... I'm being pulled into more, and doing more with my business. And my first thought was "I need to drop 50lbs immediately!". What brought that thought on!?! I'll tell you what, I know that smaller women are more respected. People look at skinny women differently in the corporate world.

And, I work to hard, not to be respected. There is more to me than my size, but I don't want people to tune me out, before I even get started. Now, I am secure in myself... Let's NOT get that t…
