Tired of being sick, broke and just coasting trough life? Sick and tired of being sick and tired?
Awake at 5 am from a deep sleep because my stomach feels like its being run over by a mac truck then put in a blender and drop kicked. All because of “delicious” crap that I’ve been eating. Oh, I worked out today, so let me eat a huge bowl of ice cream & tastey cheeze-its. They just cancel each other out, right?
Living pay check to pay check. Create a budget. Stick to it. Yeah, ok. But those shoes are so cute! I gotta read this book now! Come on, lets just go out to eat, we don’t feel like cooking, its only … oh man $60? It was just the two of us! But its ok. See, there’s “some” money in the bank and well … hey, we get paid at the end of the week.
Just going through the motions. Sleep. Wake up. Work. Be in a bad mood, channelling a crotchety old man because I hate my job. Sleep. Wake up. Go home. Run, run, run. How’s married life?! Oh, that… its good. Though it doesn’t feel like we’re married. We hardly see each other. We’ve been so busy. Welcome to married life!
I’m tired of living to be feeling ok and then suffering through bouts of what feels like medieval torture to my GI parts. Living paycheck to paycheck. Not able to save up money or pay off debt because we are living outside our means even though we technically “have” the money.
"Living" to barely get by. Wake up and do it all over again. Day after day after day.
What?! What kind of life is that?
I’m feeling disconnected with everything. Friends. Family. Work. My husband. God. What’s so great about what I’m doing if I feel disconnected from everrrrything? I dont want to live like that.
So I’m not.
Here and now, August 15, 2014 at 6:15 in the morning. Lying in bed, feeling nauseous and totally regretting that huge bowl of icecream I ate last night. Husband sound asleep. I want something different.
I want to be healthy and an upset stomach be rare as opposed to being the norm. I want to be debt free. You hear that, DEBT FREE, so we dont have to worry if there’s enough money in the bank to cover ____. I want to be connected. To actually feel like I’m living life, not just coasting through.
What’s that going to look like? How am I going to do that?
I don’t know. Truth is, probably not going to happen on my own. Need to turn this all over to God and get some praying going. Husband is recruited. I’ll take that snoring grunt as a sign of resounding approval. Friends, family … anyone want in? Who is tired of being sick, tired and living to barely get by?
Why are you writing this? Why put your life on blast? Just do it, no one needs to know. You’re probably right, but its about accountability, my friend.
Because I’m going to fail. There will be set backs. Thats just how its going to be. Because I’m not perfect. But its a complete overhaul. A lifestyle change. A day by day, at times minute by minute process, til one day, things that right now are “rare” become the norm and the “norm” become “rare”.
So here goes…
Who’s with me?
I’m ready to do life different.
"Today, we celebrate our Independence Day!" ….. alas once again I’m working on my favorite holiday and Vanessa has told me she’s never seen Independence Day (blasphemous!) Sooooo I busted out some sparklers!!

Take a second to watch this amazing video about what it means to “do things like a girl”, you won’t regret it!
Sexist jokes and comments aren’t “not hurting anyone”. Girls are taught from a young age that they are weak, and boys are taught from a young age to treat them that way.
