I am going through some transitions now. I have mentioned here before about my OCD...but frankly I had other habits I wanted to kick...not to bore you all here but this weekend was all about "transitions". Here is the definition from www.Merriam-Webster.com

So today I quit smoking...yes I said it...I'm done and now it's in PRINT. It was my downfall, my crutch but I am stronger and no longer want to mistreat my body. I have quit smoking with each of my pregnancies so my husband always thought he had to "knock me up" to get me to be healthy...but not this time...I'm not pregnant and I'm living a healthy lifestyle. I'm turning 31 next Monday and by golly I will be a changed woman!!!
Last week was the first week of my diet or shall I say lifestyle change. And it only took me seeing severely obese people eating to turn my stomach and shut my mouth (not to stop talking...who we kidding I haven't been able to do that even in Kindergarten...to stop stuffing my face silly geese). I am allowing myself one day to relish in the moment...which is Sunday for Football because who can watch football without eating wings and chili (especially if you have had my hubby's chili).
I'm really doing it this time...kicking all my bad habits...and setting a great example for myself (because we should be our own role models), my hubby, my children and you my friends!
So like the Patti LaBelle song "I Got A New Attitude"
