Take it with a pound of salt....

Ever feel like you are being tugged in a million different directions??  I for sure know that feeling, sometimes I throw up my hands and say ok what's next?  I'm sure I am not the only one here, right??  RIGHT??  haha
Let's face it, life isn't easy, so what do you do to get through it?  I try to take it with a pound of salt and keep pushing through. 

*I'm an everyday pray-er.  I know the Lord will always bring me through it.  And yes sometimes I come away from that and just need a biblical kick in the rear! 

*Parenting, my kids must be at the "talk back" stage. (you know the stage past talking back)  I'm so exhausted at the end of the day.  Rewarding and HARD all at the same time.  Oh how I love those little stinkers though!

*Exercising and my weight.  Simple, exercise and eat right!  I have NEVER been able to balance the two.  I'll get on an exercise kick and half ass the eating right OR I'll get on a healthy eating kick and half ass the exercise.  I've maintained my 20lb loss for almost 2 years but I've only lost an additional 2 or 3 since.  ughh..........

*Soda...  so bad for you.....  but so tasty.....  Maybe I would lose a few more lbs. if I cut out the soda??  Easier said than done, I love the ice cold bubbly loveliness of a soda.....

*Bills.....  enough said....

Like I said, take it with a POUND of salt and keep pushin through....  ♥

Aw! Hang in there! I think you look great. I too am battling my soda addiction. It's just so delicious! Not to mention I NEED that caffeine!

I am battling my diet coke addiction... I love it

I thought it was the caffeine but I think it is the carbonation

I switched to diet 7up and still have a hard time giving that up

Thanks Kathy! ♥

Christina, I LOVE pepsi and dr. pepper. I'm thinking the more carbonation the harder to stop! BUT mineral water isn't doing it either! LOL
