I just couldn't get any rest this past week. I was tired,hot, hungry and restless all week. My body said at 2pm on Friday it's time to rest, so I left work early and decided to catch some well needed sleep. NOT! I arrived home to find a huge box on the porch along with a ticking sound. I called mama but she wasn't in the house. I knew my girls weren't home so they weren't in harms way. So here we go again........

I called the detective he answered and requested the drill. I immediately called back mama and told her  not to come until the coast was clear.

Umm it's Sunday and we are still in a hotel........

This time there was a live bomb. My neighbors had to be evacuated as well.

Step2:Clean Sweep

Tonight I picked up my youngest from dance practice and she gave me such a look that I became nervous. I asked her what is going on? She replied "Dad, you've lost all your power!". And you know what she is correct. I've lost will power. 

Well it's been almost a month and I'm still organizing and cleaning. I've actually loss weight without the focus of a diet. Why? No time to nibble or snack. I believe my environment was holding me back. Why do we call it clean eating? Let's think about why. Have you ever noticed that a clean environment produces such positive results. Hence, clean eating.

I am re-claiming my power back.... I'll post over the next few weeks how I will win the battle!

The flowers in the kitchen....

Just when I thought things were calm and back to normal...... She returned with foolishness and flowers.
Once I arrived home I had a strange feeling as I approached my home. I just knew something was wrong. Mama rushed me grinning ear to ear. She was so happy to have new flowers after the kitchen fire or fire bombing should I say.

My mother not being sharp on the game felt compelled to let the delivery guy in the house to set down the flowers.  Oh sure,he claimed they were too heavy for her to carry inside or even set- up. So his smile,good looks and good scent got the best of mama!  She fell for it. And to think after all the years she schooled me about the charms of people...HUMPH!

After two cocktails clarity came...LOL I looked at one flower and knew it just didn't look right. Well it had a wire tap in it. I went outside and down the street , I called the detective that I've been assigned.He told all of us to leave out as normal. About fifteen mins later a squad came to check the house and carefully removed the booby-trapped flowers...... 

I wont know anything for about a week. UGH!

Step 1. Lets get the junk out!

Weightloss is more than just the numbers on the scale moving! Let's start by cleaning out the build-up. Today I dare you to clean out just one closet, that kitchen pantry.  I want you to organize too.  You have to see where we've been to see were we are going! First let's start with expiration dates. Get rid of anything old or any junk that will be expiring soon.  I got rid of old cans of soup, chef boyardee, mustard,ketchup ect.  I  need that space for the good stuff!

Let me know how it goes......

1st day of forever!

Let's look at today as the first day of the rest of your life. It's time to take control over somethings we can change. One thing I need to change is weight. I am overweight and the middle age spread is spreading. Over the next seven days I will be giving out some tips to get me and YOU (if you want) back on track!

Ive noticed that once I became overweight my total organization skills had gone too. In order to be productive we've got to start with our environment.
