Dear, Dear Friday

Just Because Friday
Dear Friday, I'm so glad you're here. But I'm equally pissed that it is my busiest day of the month at work.
Why does that have to fall on a Friday?
I'm also pretty pissed that EVEN THOUGH it's the busiest day of the month, my boss took off work.
Oh don't worry, I'll make sure EVERYTHING gets taken care of.
{Sorry, I'm just a little bitter this morning!}

Moving on.

Dear husband, when you tell me that you are going out to cut the grass, and I see this:

well, most wives might think you were trying to get out of doing it, but me? I'm proud.
The main part reason we have kids is so we can put them to work.
I'm just excited that you discovered that we never have to cut the grass again. {Stay tuned for pictures of them doing more household chores since I'm going to let them do it all.}

Dear Honey Boo Boo's Momma, you are a hot mess.
You make me feel like Mom of the Year.
Yet, I continue to watch you.
And I'm making you a rich redneck by watching the madness, but well, what can you do?

She's laughing all the way to the bank with that nasty forklift foot. {Vomit.}

Dear Big Brother, Holy Heck I love you. And I would honestly try out for your show if the husband wouldn't freak out when I mention it.
Poor Britany went home...I just hate it and I could feel her pain.

Dear blog readers, apparently I'm obsessed with reality TV.
{I have no life.}
No, but really, I'm just obsessed because I love train wrecks.
They make me feel like my life is amazing.
And that I'm a stellar person.

Dear believers/prayers/readers, could you say a tiny prayer for my family? All jokes aside {only for like half a second}, I am willing to chop off my left arm and my right arm to find my husband a day job.
I need him to sleep next to me at night. Cause who else is gonna chase after robbers if they break in the house in the middle of the night?
Not me, that's for sure.
His night job at the local strip club is going to be the death of me.
Although, I will have to learn to sleep on my side of the bed if he actually does get a day job.

Dear 5 o'clock, are we there yet?

Inspire Me Healthy- Week 5

Dont Quote The Raven
Do you want to know the best motivation ever?
Like real live friends, internet blogger friends, facebook friends, twitter friends {even though I still can't force myself to love twitter}, and last {but FO SHO not least} instagram friends.
Gosh, I feel cool with all these virtual friends.
{Insert Brad Paisley's song "I'm So Much Cooler Online". Ha.}
So back to the point.
I love all my internet peeps.
You know why?
Because I sure as heck don't want to upload a pic of me looking like a fatty. And I don't want to write a blog about working out and then go sit my fat butt on the couch. Well, okay, I want to do that one, but I know it will get me nowhere.
I haven't lost much since last week.
And by "much" I really mean none.
Details, details.
I'm SLOWLY becoming a healthy person though.
I choose low carbs like a lifestyle nowadays.
I love to sweat.
I try to get my daily exercise in always.
And I am learning that every single thing that I eat counts.
No more of this "it's just one tiny piece of candy" or "it's only 4 lbs of honey mustard, what can it hurt?" business.
The moral of the story is, I'm still inspired.
And I'm pretty proud of that.
You know why?
Because normally after a couple of weeks of being inspired,
I fall off the wagon.
I decide I'm fat and happy and that's okay.
Staying on the wagon this time.
And hoping to take up less room on that darn wagon too.

Now, let's get started working on week 6!
Did I mention I love this linkup?

So What Wednesday

So what if I could barely move this morning. I still got out of bed and did the 30 Day Shred with Jillian.
So what if she drives me batty. Her workout video still really really works.

So what if I needed to run yesterday afternoon, but I cut the grass instead. I still got exercise. And since it will be raining this weekend, I won't have to stress about it.

So what if my kids had dinner before going to softball practice last night but were still hungry when they got home. That's what Ramen noodles are for.
So what if I fed my kids Ramen noodles. They need to learn to appreciate the finer things in life. I'm only trying to prepare them for their college years. Plus I fed them their 2nd dinner for only $0.33.
So what if instead of getting onto K for eating her noodles with her hands, I took a picture instead. It's not like anyone was there to witness her lack of table manners. We weren't even at the table.

So what if it's only Wednesday. This weekend is a holiday weekend and I'm off work on Monday. Woohoo!!

So what if I'm frustrated with my diet. I'm not giving up. I'm just going to work harder.

Happy Hump Day homies! :)

Motivated Like a Muther

Some days, I'm motivated like a muther.
Put mac&chz in front of me, no problem. I'm not interested.
Would you like a Dr Pepper? No thanks, I'm trying to quit.
Raining outside? I'm running anyways.

And then some days, I just want to sleep in.
It accomplishes nothing to sleep in.
But you know, sometimes I'm tired.
Sometimes work is tough, and the girls have sports the night before and I just like to have myself a mini pity party and tell myself I deserve a few hours of sleep. Seems extrememly rational at 5AM.
That my husband loves my curves so why am I worried about them?
That I'm already married so I should just relax, it's not like I have to get all fixed up lookin' hot and try to score me a date at the club.
So I should just sleep in {until 6AM}.

Insert pesky husband here.

And the funny part is....he knew he was taking a risk by saying this to 5AM me. He knew I could possibly bite his head off for telling me to get off my arse, but he did it anyways. Why? Because he knows I feel 100% better when I get up and workout. He knows that if I want to accomplish my goal of being a MILF getting in shape, then sleeping an extra hour helps me none.
And also, he knows sometimes I need an extra push.
And for me, I like to make him proud because we are lovey dovey newlyweds.
So, when he made it home from work this morning, and slapped me on the butt and told me good job while I was on a date with Jillian Michaels, it made me happy. And so did my workout.
Much happier than an extra hour of sleep would have.

So, what are you waiting for?
Why skip that bread or mac&chz if you aren't going to work out like heck too?

Happy Tuesday homies!

Weekend Update

So sad to see this weekend come to an end.
FH & I got in some great alone time
AND I got to eat some carbs.
What more could a girl ask for?!

Friday night, we went out to eat Mexican (hello cheese dip!)
and then went home to watch TV and be lazy before FH had to leave for work (did I mention that I hate his nighttime job? well, I do).

Saturday morning it was finally volleyball time!
I'm so excited that the girls are going to a volleyball camp this year!
I love volleyball (just like I do every other sport) and I was
excited for the girls to start working on a college scholarship start playing! They can't actually play until middle school but this is a camp to help them learn the basics.

How cute are those tiny legs in knee pads?!

Once that was over, it was time for me to get busy. I knew I needed to run so that I could pig out and have a few beverages Saturday night.
BUT it was raining. BOO.

So, what's a girl to do? Well, run in the rain of course.
I was a hot mess by the time I got through but it felt great.
It wasn't hot at all and my wet clothes were only a little bit heavy.

I started doing the couch to 10K program. I doubt that I will do it everyday, but it's something to entertain me while I run/walk.
The chick on the app tells you when to run and when to walk and even tells you when you are halfway done.
I pretty much love the app.

And then of course, like any old lady, I iced my bad knee.

On to shopping.
I found this to die for baby Memphis outfit.
Now all we need is a baby.
And no, I didn't actually purchase it.
I don't want to jinx myself.
But do you notice how me and the "baby" would have had on coordinating blue outfits?
Yeah, me too.

I am TRYING so hard to be patient with the whole baby fever because I know that I want to be selfish and spend as much time as possible with my handsome husband, but I'm not sure how long I can hold out!!! I mean, I'd rather not have K&A in their teenage years when a baby gets here....but we'll just wait and see what God has in store for us.

Oh and guess what?
I won some more money, hunny boo boo!

I swear, I don't buy scratch offs every weekend.
Last time I won,
I got lots of comments on how the most anyone ever wins is a couple of dollars.
Well, the key is that you get your husband to buy the $20 scratch offs instead of the $3 ones. The $20 ones let you win more!
I don't recommend it often though cause dang, I would hate to lose $20! But every once in awhile, FH thinks I'm his good luck charm.

Sunday Funday was spent with the family.
The girls grilled out for us.

Man, their stepdaddy is training them well.
They won't need men to grill for them when they get older.
Plus, I can make them do it when FH isn't home.
It's a win-win.

The burgers were delicious.
Please note, this is FH's burger.
For some reason, he thinks it is better to have one MASSIVE burger than it is to have a couple of small ones.

And like every other good weekend, we finished Sunday night off with couch time watching Big Brother.

I love my family!

How did you spend your weekend??

No Carbs- Day 7

I'm almost done with this challenge.
But I should warn you that once I am finished, I'm probably going to eat a few cheat meals this weekend, then start the challenge again on Monday. It works, what can I say?
And the more I resist good food, the better I get at it.
Plus I've lost 6 lbs in 7 days, so yeah, I'd say it's been a success.
Gotta start somewhere.

Last night I made a delicious dinner which included bread.
And once again, I was successful at resisting. 

So, I should never quit my job and be a food photographer.
Because these don't look half as good as they tasted.
I got the recipe here and they are called Wolf Pack Specials.
We also put them on chips for nachos.
And by "we" of course I mean my fam.
Cause I just got to eat the meat.
Which, by the way, was amazing all alone.
I mean, just check out the smile on this kids face:

Everyone had seconds.

Dang, this post was suppose to be about my no carb diet but instead it's just making me hungry.

Inspire Me Healthy- Week 4

A Mommas Desires And Pacifiers
First off, I just have to say, I big heart this link up.
Now, moving on.

Let's talk about no carbs.
Cause that's what I have been doing for the past week.
You can read about it here, here, here, and here.
I can't say I have had zero carbs as I do get cheat meals, but I can say that it FEELS like I have had no carbs.

People that I work with are starting to look like pieces of bread.
I try to tell myself that it's an illusion. Because it is. I think.
Or else carbs are coming after me.
They probably actually do miss me, we were pretty tight.
Diet Dr Pepper also probably misses me.
I haven't seen it's face, or tasted its' goodness in a week!
That's front page news y'all!
Me and DDP are like BFF.
Day in and day out we spent together.
Well, it's over.
For now, anyways.
I'm cheating on him with water.
Water is normally like that guy you dated in high school, you know where you break up with him because "he would make a great husband, you just aren't looking for a husbad right now".
I know I need water in my life, I just haven't accepted it.
I'm still not sure if I'm ready for it.
Every time I chug my water, I try to pretend like I'm at a frat party and every one is around me chanting "Chug, chug, chug".
That usually helps, cause I don't want to dissappoint a crowd of frat kids even though I'm old enough to be their mom.

The good news is that I have found a new form of punishment.
You did bad on your spelling test? You got in trouble at school today?
That's right. You can have dinner, but you can't have those yummy carbs.
This could mean a whole new life for us.
No longer will my kids act out, great grades will be had by all.

Today is the last day of this torture my challenge.

Saturday, I plan to pig out.
I'm really freaking excited about it too.
Hopefully I won't do too much damage and can get back on track after being so bad.

I guess we'll find out on the next Inspire Me Healthy Thursday.

No Carbs Day 6

I would just like to start out by saying that last night I made dinner, like real dinner for my fam, and I didn't eat the mac&cheese.
If that's not HUGE, I really don't know what is.
If you follow me on Instagram (@MrsLoYoung)
then you already knew this.
And you have already seen this pic.

But it's freakin' mac&cheese y'all.
So, I'm pretty stinkin proud.
I won't even mention the delicious rolls that I made bought.
Oh, I just wanted to inhale them.

Moving on.

Day 6.
I did it.
And I lost another pound.
That brings my total to 6 lbs in 6 days.
Watch out skinny jeans and high boots, I'm coming to get you, we have a date this fall so I hope you're ready.

I had scrambled eggs while my family feasted last night.
I can say it gets easier as time goes on.
The hardest part is not really saying no, but making sure I don't just automatically grab a bite of something out of habit.
Like tasting the mac&cheese. Or grabbing a chug of FH's dr pepper.
Or sneaking a piece of cookie dough while K is making everyone (but me) cookies after dinner.
Seriously. Habit.
Who would have thought?
I also have learned that a lot of the time, I'm not hungry I just feel like I should have dessert, or feel like since everyone else is still eating that I should be too.
I never believed everyone when they said that you just THINK you are hungry sometimes, but now I believe it.

I've been running.
Which is good and bad.
Good because it helps my weightloss.
Bad because I have bad knees.
So far, so good though.

Only two days left.
I can't believe I am going to finish out this challenge without EVEN cheating once! I'm pretty proud.

You can read about my first 5 days here, here, and here.

Two more days of no carbs and then I'm gonna have a pig out day!
I can't wait!!

No Carbs Day 5

I'm frustrated.
I am still only down 5 lbs.
I know this is a lot for 5 days and I should be excited about it, but I can't help it, I'm not.
Starting on Day 3 on this plan, you alternate "eating days" with protein only days. On eating days, you get a 500 calorie lunch as kind of like your cheat meal.
Since day 3, i have gained 1 lb on the cheat day, and lost that 1 lb the next day. That is so frustrating!
I know the cheat day is necessary because it shocks my body.
My body needs to think it could get carbs at any time so that it's confused, but I'm so mad that I can't lose more that I almost want to just skip the whole cheat day all together.
I am ready to get over this hump because I have a lot more to lose!

I think my saving grace is my husband.
He knows all about eating protein and lack of carbs and how it affects the body. Plus he's my cheerleader.
Not to mention, we have a bet on how much I will lose during my 8 day challenge and if you know me, you know that I don't like to lose {at anything}.

So, I refuse to give up.
I refuse to even cheat a little.
Still no Dr Pepper.
Still no candy.
Still no random pieces of bread.

I took all my frustration out on the pavement this morning and ran harder than I have ran in a long time.
I think that helped a little.
Well, that and wearing a cute new skirt to work today, that helped too.

Here's hoping to more success in the last three days.
Even if I just have to sweat it out!

Me, Myself, and I Linkup

It's time for another My, Myself, and I linkup!

Let's get this party started.....

1. What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?

That's a tough one. I'm the type of person that thinks that you can do anything that you put your mind to. I'm pretty sure I adopted that attitude once I graduated from college (twice) while mothering twins and working....yeah, after that, I really CAN do anything!! I would say that something I would like to do is to run a marathon. {I'm sure I should start out with a half marathon first, details, details....} The only reason that I am afraid I would fail with this goal is because I have horrible knees. {Old lady alert} Every time I run a lot, I am dying the next day. I love to run though, and I think I could def work my way up to it, but I am worried about my old lady knees. If I knew I wouldn't fail, I would go for it....and I would put that 26.2 sticker on the back of my car like a champ.

2. If you only had six months left to live, what would you do with the time?

First things first, I'd quit my job. Then, I'd make my husband quit his job....because let's be honest, he'd be making a killing on my life insurance. I would choose to spend every waking moment with the people that mattered most to me...and we'd probably go on a couple of vacations so that I can see the world...probably, I'd get a boob job too. Cause I wanna leave this world with some perky boobs. {Please note, I know that I can't take them with me, this was just be a perk- pun intended.}

3. If a front page news article was written on you, what would the headline be?

Mother loses her shit.
Haha, I love my kids more than life, but man sometimes they drive me bonkers. {Please ignore this statement husband, as it kind of does go against my case of wanting another baby. :) }

4. What is your biggest pet peeve?

Bad grammar. Period. And the word "ain't"....cause "ain't ain't a word"

5. What is your favorite chick flick movie?

Magic Mike....duh.
No, but for real, The Notebook. I'm not the mushy gushy type, but "If I'm a bird, you're a bird" gets me everytime.

No Carbs Day 2-4

Okay, so I don't really like to blog over the weekend so this will be a combined post.
Days 2-4 weren't as bad as expected.

Friday was day 2.
My second day of zero carbs and my head was feeling it.
I had a super killer headache. I thought it was because I gave up caffeine, or well, at least most. There is caffeine in the meds, but other than that, I wasn't drinking much of it. Now I feel like it is my body's reaction to missing the carbs. Either way, the headaches have been on again and off again. They have been tough but not enough for me to cheat.

It's hard for me to understand that these pills are really working. I'm just tough to sell, I guess.
But the fact that I have made it to Day 5 and I am not in a horrible mood, I haven't been tempted enough to give up, and the fact that I am not killing over in hunger pains means that they are working.

Saturday was day 3.
This worked out perfectly because on Day 3, you get a "cheat meal". I don't know how much of a cheat meal it is, but you get to eat whatever you want as long as the meal is not over 500 calories. Luckily, I realized that there were items at Taco Bell that I could eat. Oh, that was exciting!!!! You are suppose to sprinkle this stuff called "cheat" on your food before you eat it. It's basically something that fools your body into expanding the food and making your body think it's fiber, or something like that. Either way, it made me feel super full! It was either that or the fact that my stomach has shrunk a little, but either way, I was full!
I also finally tried putting unsweetened Almond milk in my shake at night. I had trouble finding unsweetened, and the regular had carbs, but I finally found some at Kroger. I combined the milk, ice cubes, protein powder, unsweetend coco powder, and cinnamon and blended it all up. I have to say, it was delicious. It was almost like a milkshake. And it took me so much longer to drink than just a regular (super thin) protein shake. It was a good treat!

Sunday was Day 4.
I'm not gonna lie, it wasn't pretty.
Headache continues.
It almost felt like how most people describe a migraine.
I took a 4 hour nap during the middle of the day and still didn't wake up feeling great. I didn't cheat at all so I'm really really proud of myself. I woke up in the middle of the night with a headache still, but I just drank more water.

I am down 5 lbs after 4 days. I actually gained a lb back after my cheat day but then lost it again after day 4. I'm interested to see how much I lose at the end of the 8th day.

All-in-all I think I'm doing pretty well.
But I can say that if I weren't so determined, this diet probably wouldn't be working. I have had many chances to cheat and many excuses to, but I have refused. If I weren't so fed up with being overweight, I think I would have given up by now.
So, if you aren't super determined with this diet, I wouldn't even try it. There is no halfway, it's all or nothing.
I'm just glad I finally reached a point that I am ready to give it my all. I think reading the success stories has really really helped me stay motivated.

Weekend Update

Another Monday. Gross.
I hate Mondays.
But I LOVE weekends, so let's focus on the weekend.
We had a great weekend!
FH didn't have to work Friday night so we had extra time together and that is always fantabulous.

Friday afternoon started with me leaving work early and going home to take a nap {old lady alert} and it felt great!
Then it was off to the school to pick up the three musketeers.
Then, not only did I get in a nap, but FH watched the girls while I went to tan and work out {hallelujah!}.

We went to eat sushi Friday night.
And by this I mean that FH and A ate sushi {K was with her dad and I don't eat sushi}. Not to mention I am still on my no carb diet so this was an easy place for me to eat since there was not a lot of temptation. I got a kids meal and just ate the chicken.

It was really good chicken!
And A got an adult meal {imagine that}.

I pity her future boyfriend...I hope he has a good job {or else his parents do}. She loves the most expensive things in life.

Next we went to buy some new games and I got this book...I'm excited about reading it!

Saturday, I dyed my hair. Don't tell my hairdresser, she will kill me.
But you know, sometimes I just don't have time to go sit in a chair to get it done...I'm just not that patient.
Plus I was only doing it a tiny bit darker than it already was, so I figured I was safe doing it on my own {and for only $10}.

We acted a little bit goofy too.....

And I found out one of my daughters had a hidden talent....

This eye thing just really freaked me out!

I got some new sunglasses {Go Tigers!!!} so that I would be ready for tailgating.

And then we had a spa night at our house doing facials while we watched The Hunger Games.

Believe it or not, we actually talked FH into doing the facials with us.
We were tempted to do his entire bald head, but we decided against it. {I'm sure he was grateful for this.}

Sunday, I had a HUGE headache so after church I took like a 4 hour nap...the nap was pretty great but it made me Sunday super short.

We had time for family cuddling though.

And even got in a carwash.

All in all, it was a super great fun back to the daily grind! Can't wait til next weekend!!

No Carbs Day One

Okay, let me just start out by saying that I wasn't going to post about this until I was finished with my 8 Day challenge.
I want to make sure I am completely happy with these products. I don't have many followers but I would rather not promote anything that I don't really really really recommend.
With that being said, I'm a blogger so I gotta write it down, y'all! Duh.

So, to be clear, this is an 8 day challenge that is basically no carbs. There are herbal supplements that you take to speed up your metabolism and curve your appetite and all that jazz.

Yesterday was my first day.
I did not cheat one tiny time.
You have a protein shake for breakfast and well, let's just say it's not filling AT ALL. I'm guessing that the curb your appetite pills worked though because I wasn't dying.
I had a mid-morning snack of 4-6 ounces of protein.
I bought 96/4 ground beef to take to work for this. I cooked it the night before and weighed out my portions. Obviously it's very important to plan ahead or you are screwed.

It wasn't too bad, but I mean, it's just like a taco without the taco, so it wasn't very exciting!
I'm trying to teach myself that food is fuel, it isn't a social event and it's not necessarily meant for pleasure.
Eat to live, not live to eat.
And trust me, I have always lived to eat {hence, the problem}.

Next, I had a shake for lunch.
Again, it's not filling but I wasn't dying.

I bought fajita steak so I would have something different since obviously I'm not going to ask my husband to fire up the grill every night to cook me a steak {although I might this weekend}.
Can I just say that my fajita steak was amazing?!
It really was!

I really wanted to eat it with A1 sauce because I freakin love A1, but it had a few carbs in it. Seriously not much, but I knew I could eat it without so I chose not to {I might before the 8 days are over with though}.

Actually, technically, that portion of meat was suppose to be an afternoon snack and then dinner was a shake.
But I considered that my dinner and then I had a shake about an hour or two later.
I exercised some, but not enough.
I'd like to exercise more so I can really blow these 8 days out of the water, but we'll see how that goes.

I will say that I went to bed with an awful headache.
I know this is because of my body going into shock because of the detox. I mean, I drink at least two Diet Dr Peppers a day and I am giving those up. {Maybe not completely, but I am now because it will help me drink more water.} I also am a candyaholic and I had no candy and not even any gum yesterday. So my body is pissed.
I was told this would pass after Day two so I just have to survive today and then I'm golden.

I hate to even talk about weight loss yet, since it's day one.
My weight fluctuates a lot.
But when I weighed myself this morning, I was down 2.5 lbs already.
That was a shock.

We'll see how Day two goes....hopefully this headache goes away!

Everybody Gets Down on Friday

Just Because Friday

It's friday, friday, everybody gets down on Friday.
You're welcome.
Please continue to sing that annoying but catchy song all day.

It's safe to say I lurve me some fridays.
I also like to leave work early on fridays.
I'm gonna be strong today though....maybe.

I'm so ready for the freakin' weekend.
FH is off work tonight so we get to spend some much needed time together. Did I mention that I hate his job? Yeah, well, I do. Like, a lot. He works nights so that means I am all alone in our big ole bed every night of the week. Poor little ole me.
But not tonight!

We have a fun weekend planned including movie night at the girls' school tonight, whatever the {blank} we want on Saturday
{I love to plan on not having a plan, I even like to put it on my to do list- do whatever you want/free time}
and then on Sunday we have a get together for his mom's bday....and we will be eating at Red Lobster. Did I mention that I can't eat bread? And that Red Lobster has THE MOST AMAZING bread?

I'm gonna be strong though, just like I was when the husband came home with this:

I'm not sure if you know about carbs or if you have been living under a rock somewhere, but this is basically a box of carbs with sprinkles.

I stayed strong though.....because I'm a freakin' rockstar.

Happy Friday homies!
**Please think of me this weekend every time you eat a piece of bread.**

Inspire Me Healthy- Week 3 (I think)

Something happened this past week....I wasn't inspired. I was such a slacker. See Sonic dessert below.

But today starts an 8 day challenge that I am doing. I am PUMPED. And super motivated. {I say that every time, not the point....}
You can read a little more about it here.
This 8 day challenge includes, wait for it, no carbs. Oh, it just got real.
Carbs are my BFF.
They make me happy, full, and my butt big and round.
{Pretend like you didn't just start singing "Baby Got Back". I dare you.}
{If you didn't then, I bet you did now.}
So, back to my butt. No, I mean carbs. Or, ummm, rather no carbs.
Meat is what's for dinner {and lunch}.
Protein shakes will be had 3 times a day. Protein shakes that are mainly water and mainly a big ole glass of nothingness.

8 Days.
That means my last day of the challenge will be next Thursday.
Next Inspire Me Healthy Thursday.

Oh and there will be exercising.
FH works nights and his MAIN duty is to make sure I'm awake by 5.

I swear the man is more reliable than an alarm clock.
I get a text at exactly 5AM.

Not 5:01, not 4:59.
{I swear I just almost typed 4:99, did that just happen? We are talking minutes here not cents. Get it together fool. Notice, this no carb thing is messing with my head and I'm only 2 hours in. Imagine the genius posts I'll be making by next week.}

If I don't follow through, please call me out.
Blast it on facebook, put it up on a billboard, send me hate mail.
I'll let you decide.

Until then, I'll be munching on carbs Sonic ice as a snack with a side of meat. Try not to be too jealous.

For some reason, I'm a loser and I can't get the link up pic copied. So follow this link to find more healthy posts!

If I Ran the World.....

What a fun link up party over at the Life of Bon and let the record show that if she ruled the world, it would be a whole lot cooler {insert Matthew McConaughey via Dazed and Confused impression}. So make sure you go read her post and imagine her world.

Now, on to my lame world and how I would run it....first off, wait, what? I'm not in charge here? I kinda thought I was, or I pretend to be. I love that my husband lets me pretend....I mean, after all, he is the head of our family and I am the neck.

If I ruled the world {great, now I can't get that song out of my head, thanks for that, guess I will have to sing along as I type the rest of this post}, life would be great.

All men would look like this:

Totally kidding, they'd actually look like this:

Dang, my husband is hot stuff. :)

If I ruled the world, you could have an amazing figure and still munch on doughnut holes (omg) and pizza dipped in white cheese dip topped with ice cream {that acutally sounds gross, but I just wanted to combine all my favorite things}....and you had to do was BELIEVE and you could have flat, hard abs.

In other words, have your cake and eat it too.

If I ruled the world, there would be no homework for children under the age of middle cramps my style. Once they are old enough to do it on their own, then we can talk. Maybe.

If I ruled the world, moms would get extra time in the day and would require less sleep. They would also all have maids.

If I ruled the world, I would retire at the age of 35, then travel the world with my family, which wouldn't cost anything {obviously, since I wouldn't have a job}.

If I ruled the world, work emails would answer themselves, problems would solve themselves, and I could loose weight the more I typed.

If I ruled the world, baby daddies would be nicer and would realize that their money was actually for the kids not the baby momma. And there would be no complaints.

If I ruled the world, my handwriting would be prettier.

If I ruled the world, everyone would follow my blog. :) So I didn't feel like I was talking to myself all the time.

And finally, if I ruled the world, every day would be Saturday.

***Please note, I just realized the name of the link up was "if I ran the world" but I literally could NOT get that song out of my head so all of my post says "if I ruled the world". haha, guess I'll leave it, cause fixing it involves more work.***
