We All Got It!

Ok, I know I am doing two posts today but I haven't done a Thankful one, and I write/talk to much so the other post would have been way to long if I would have wrote this in there!

Today, I want to talk about how I am Thankful for my siblings,through blood and law! There is one way to tell if youre a Klingaman, look at the booty! We all got it, my sister, my brother and I, all have big ole bubble butts. I am thankful for my bubble butt because its something I share with my family. =D

My sister and I didn't get to grow up together but I am thankful that she is here with me now. I am thankful that we can try to make up for the times we didn't have and that I have a sister I can talk to when I need something. She has great advice and a pure heart. I am thankful that I have her now. I am thankful for her husband Dustin, even though he drives me crazy sometimes, he is a lot of fun to have in our family. He is genuine, caring and sweet, even with his tough guy persona!

My brother, has always been one of my best friends. I am thankful that I can call him in the middle of the day to ask him how to lift weights and he is there for me. I miss the friendship that we used to have, but I am thankful for all the fun we have had and will continue to have as adults. I am thankful that he has been there for me during really hard times, and I know that he will always be there for me. I am thankful for the love he has shown me, and the role model he has been for me in my life. Without him, I don't know where I would be, but because of him I know where I can be. I am also thankful for his wife, Emily. I am thankful for the relationship that we share. She is very much like a sister to me, and I am thankful that we have many years to come to grow our relationship. I am thankful for her sister kelsey, whom I call my own sister. She is a light in my life. I am thankful for the fun times that we have had together, and the unique family situation we have created. Our families, are not secondary families, we have joined them together, and I could not be happier. I am thankful for Blair and look forward to growing up together. I have always wanted a big family, and I didn't know I would get that through my "in-Laws" but I am very thankful for everyone of them!

Who are you thankful for in your life??


So awhile ago my dear sweet friend Karalyn asked me, "What I missed about being on my 'diet'"? I thought about it at first, there really was nothing because I do not think of Weight Watchers as a diet. I think of it as something that allows me to be healthier but I do not feel trapped in. I get to choose what I eat, I get to keep track of the good, and bad things I put in my body, I am just more aware of what I am putting in, and doing with my body! I feel that Weight Watchers is based on awareness. If you are not aware, you gain weight. That is what I did! I ate what I wanted and a lot of it, lots of times a day and wasn't aware of the negative affect it was having on my body, both with weight gain, less energy, uncomfortableness. But now, I am aware! I can have a cookie (or two) one day, but not everyday. I can still have my starbucks, but one day a week, not everyday. I can still eat my favorite mexican food, but not everyday! And I am ok with that... ok sorry about the tangent back to the original question. It was a very good question, because when people diet, they miss things. It took me sometime and I realized it. I realized that I do miss something... I miss not feeling guilty for wanting something, usually In n Out. But I think that is me just wishing to not be aware of what I am doing, and I dont want that! I think since I am in the thick of it all, and very determined to get healthy and be comfortable that feeling of guilt is much stronger than it will be later. Because, I know I can have anything I want, but I wont be I am determined to get my confidence back, and to feel good about myself. And those feelings are way better than those In N Out french fries! So moral of the story: this is not a diet. this is a lifestyle change. i am more aware than i have ever been, and i am glad, not guilty.

ps. this is the thing I have been wanting to blog about but totally forgot from the last post! =D

pss. so I listen to the local radio station, 104.7 John Jay and Rich in the morning, and they have this Healthe Trim diet that they promote. These things drive me crazy, because I think- yea its great that you are 51 years old and lost 26 pounds in 5 weeks (even though that is a little extreme) but you had to take 5 "natural" pills to do it! what happens when you stop taking the pills buddy??? I am not going to lie, I looked into Healthe Trim, the bottles have 100 pills and are 60$, if that guy is taking 5 in the morning, and 3 at night he is paying for a bottle almost every 9 days! that is just absurd. What ever happened to good ole fashion work. I work out everyday (almost everyday) and I eat healthy, and learning to live this lifestyle at 23 won't ever let me get to your point mister 51. But when those pills stop working, and you continue to eat the way you always have, because you didn't learn to change your lifestyle, just took a pill that filled you up- you are gonna be screwed, once again. it just erks me that people always bag on "having to count points" when they are taking about their food plan system, protein shakes, or "all natural energy" pills... what happens when you take those away from people? when they have to go out into the real world without their pre-portioned meals, and protein shakes... they fail... granted, I am using generalization, maybe for some people they can live the rest of their lives that way, or they just needed a jump start to get the weight off and they will keep it off, but it just seems that in the end those people will lose. I truly believe Weight Watchers is one of the only sure things because its a new lifestyle... but thats just my opinion, and good thing this is my blog so I can say it!


Best Friends For Life- Biffle!

So just a little update on the WW stuff, yesterday was weigh in. Surprisingly I was down 3 more lbs to get to over 10% of my body weight lost! =D I might not do it as fast as they do on the Biggest Loser, but I feel like a big loser reaching that goal! It makes it a total of 14.8 lbs! I think I am going to make my goal weight where I am so I can start maintenance and then become a lifetime member! =D

Today, I want to talk about how I am thankful for my mom. My mom IS my best friend. She loves me exactly how I am. She is encouraging, loving, genuine, interested, gives me the right amount of space with the right amount of discipline. She always knows what the say and when to say it. She is just, amazing. We have so many fun memories together. One thing that I will never forget is growing up when beanie babies were really awesome, one day I came home from school and I had the frog one hanging out on my faucet in my bathroom. It was one of the best surprises! She always does that, she knows people, and she knows how people feel loved and so that is what she does for them. My 18th birthday, senior year of high school, she went into my dance class and decorated everything in Finding Nemo and make my favorite rice crispie treats with sprinkles! My last birthday, 23rd, I had take on a princess persona. I dont know why, it just happened, honest... Well when I went over there for my birthday dinner, she had pink princess stuff everywhere! It was so much fun, to feel like a princess and little kid again, and it was so much fun to have her do that for me! I am thankful for the friendship my momma and I have. We had been through a rough road almost two years ago (can't believe its been that long...)but that road made our bond so strong, I have been forever blessed by that. I am thankful for being able to call my mom, biffle- because we are Best Friends For Life. I am thankful for everything about you momma.



Thankful to be your little girl...

I haven't forgotten you sweet, sweet blog! I haven't forgotten about you when I think of new ideas of something to share, I just have been busy and lazy! I have thought, I need to blog, but then decide that watching TV is a better decision at that moment. But I am here! And I am prepared to be better!

So, wow... I have had this idea that I wanted to blog about for a long time and I get here and just like that! its gone... Hahaha Well I will do something else! Since it is November, I wanted to start saying what I am thankful for everyday. I am a little late but I will just start now!

I am thankful for my Dad. My dad is the best man I have ever met in my life. And, I am not just saying that because he is my dad, I am saying it because I have been told this by many, many other people. My dad's heart is the most pure, genuine things out there. My dad is still a child inside at times, and that is one of the things I love most about that man. He is not afraid to laugh at things that are supposed to be for kids. One time, we went to go see Robots together in theaters. I was sitting on the outside, my dad to my right, then there was a little boy (probably 6 or 7) to his right, and then a girl about my age (we were 19 or 20 at the time) that I assumed was his babysitter or older sister. Well throughout the ENTIRE movie, my dad and this kid laughed at the EXACT same things, for the EXACT duration, EVERYtime!! I enjoy things so much more when I am with my dad. And yes, sometimes I go crazy, but its really not him... its me, me being moody, tired, anything... he has been there for me through a lot of hard times. I was not always the nicest, most loving daughter to that man through my teenage years... But, BUT, I have learned! I have learned that he is amazing, and he does so much for me and my family that I could never imagine him not being around or treating him the way I had. I feel blessed because I have such a special relationship with him (and my mom) that I hold so so dear to my heart. I just want to say, I am thankful for my papa... I am thankful to call myself his daughter and to work with him on a daily basis. Papa, I am thankful for you!

Tuesday, I was really lazy. Decided watching TV was a good way to spend my time. Then after I was done, about 3 hours later, I thought to myself... Why is it soo much easier to be lazy, than to be productive at times? I was thinking, when I look back on my life those hours, days I spent just being lazy weren't doing anything to make me better... but I will always have my lazy days. I just will have to really make up for those lazy days on my productive days!
