27 days of Thankfulness

So i've been tagged by Afrolicious and i'm racking my brain on how to express my appreciation to the Almighty in words!!!!



Usually i just cry ;)



Anyway here goes.....



I'm thankful to be alive today, it's a real priviledge not everyone in the world gets it daily!!!



I'm thankful for my family, we quarrel all the time ;) But i won't trade them for silver or gold



I'm thankful for my two bestest friends in the whole wide world !!! i've met many people but you two just rock my world. i don't know what i'd do without you both.



I'm thankful for God's mercies, it's the only way i still have a job, clothes on my back, small change in the bank and my car!!! Plus my many other assets;)



I'm thankful for where i've come from and where I am now, it's been a tough road to walk but he saw me through it all

I'm just thankful for the many second chance(s) i've received to start over and set things kinda right.....

I'm thankful for good health, haven't been in a hospital for any illness per se in almost 5 years!!!

:)

I'm just thankful.......

P.S- Can i be thankful for my dog? I'm really thankful for him though

Ok, i tag bubbles and any one else who reads this blog!!!!!!

The battle of the bulge

Just realised i haven't blogged in almost a month.....

Work has been quite crazy

My new boss is a "workaholic/perfectionist"

I have nearly died from all the pressures ;)

Anyway i digress

Over the past month(s) i have tried to lose weight especially around my mid riff aka tummy

It's quite big you see. So much so that i've had people actually ask me if i'm pregnant.

I've tried sit ups with a tummy trimmer and i jog(more like run) for half an hour on Saturdays.

However for some odd reason the arrow on the scale is still pointing upwards or refusing to move from it's current position of 78kg.

I am at a loss as to what to do really....

Some time back i gave one fellow a ride. He's not my friend or anything, heck i don't even know his name.I was just being neigbourly because i had seen his face around the estate.

The silly punk had just after sitting for 3 minutes in the car had the impudence to tell me"shey u know u're getting fat?" to shut him up i said "I know" and he still goes on to say " so aren't u going to do anything about it?" Like it's his business....

I promptly responded no and turned up the radio....

Loud hiss....

This morning again, i had to stop at my friend's place to drop off some stuff and her younger cousin, doesn't even say good morning he just says " ha u're just growing fatter and fatter"

I was thoroughly embarassed to say the least....

It's a real battle some people say "you're losing weight oh" others happily tell you " Ha you're just looking fatter, or bigger"

Quite discouraging i must tell you.

I'm frustrated

At a loss as to how to win this battle of the bulge....

I'm desperate to make my tummy smaller again...

Picking up the pieces It may not completely make sense but I want to document this phase I passed through Sometimes life decides to hand...
