Feel Good Thursday...

Wish it was Friday but I am off early today so I have something to look forward to!

Just call me the freaking MOM BUS DRIVER! The kids are out of school and I am driving all over town to get them to camps and activities. I am just drained by the time I get home...

I did go for my walk last night and I felt so much better. It cleanses the brain and I get alone time. Pretty sweet.

I had nothing exciting to post but then I read Amy's blog and she totally inspired me and helped clear my brain! I am always thinking the what if's and what abouts but then I read this line and it made me feel so much better! She is 18 months in and over a 100lbs lost - you can't beat it!

"Gone is my fear that I will fail....that this won't work for me. Gone is the feeling that this is another "diet". This is my life now. And that is a good feeling."

So coolios to all you wonderful peeps that write the most inspirational posts that are so informative and eloquently! Well said...


  1. That is all we need to hear once in awhile...a few words of encouragement. :)

    I know what you mean about the mom carpool... :)

    Happy summer!

  2. Sometimes I need to step back from the day to day and look at the big picture, 12, 18, 24 months from now. I will succeed. It doesn't matter how fast we get there, but before you know we'll turn around and realize we're home.

    I have totally fell in love with exercise for that very reason you mentioned - head clearing alone time! I look forward to it. It's the best therapy in the world.

  3. Amy is da bomb - and so are you!

  4. Yup. Success is yours. Take it this time.

  5. You are just as inspirational, Nella! Never forget that!

    Luckily I am a few years away from the carpooling mom stage. Oh how I am looking forward to that ~voice dripping in sarcasm~ :)

  6. You are an inspiration too Nella - don't you forget it!!

  7. It is great to take inspiration from each other-- thank you for all of the support and you will continue to do great too!!!
