What the????? and Thankful Thursday..

Oh MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!!! So today reality hit me and well bluntly speaking, I am a disgusting piece of poo!

I have let my cute little body go from toned and dainty to dun lapped (over my pants) and love handle hell. I have helped it along quite nicely with every little Debbie white cake I have eaten but I did however do that with good intentions, you see I did not want my children eating all the cakes because that is not good for them you know.

So on this day I declare I shall never touch a little debbie cake again! Okay so that is a big fat lie but I am going to eat better. I think I do this every year, when it gets close to spring. You see every winter this little voice (one of the many) inside my head tells me “Toni it’s okay to eat whatever you want, jackets and sweaters will had the extra poundage” and every year I believe this voice (the evil little voice that it is).

Now one would begin to think I would realize every year I do this and every year I regret it. But oh sweet Lord the food in the winter, turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, dressing, desserts it’s meant to be eaten I tell you. So why am I shocked and disgusted every single year when I do it to myself.

Now it’s time for an intervention I guess, I must lock away the little debbies (except for weekends) and pull out the undressed salads. I wonder how much damage I did this year in the poundage deptarment, I think I will stay away from the scales and just go by looks, I will know when I am bikini ready. Unfortunately I don’t think it will be in time for NKOTB (scratch wearing the bikini to the concert) but I will be cute and teensy come July when I am beachin it in Florida. Here’s to working out (sometime soon)!

Now onto my weekly annoyed/thankful post:

I am annoyed that I got pudgy from eating too much and not working out enough….I am thankful however because the extra pounds may have kept me from dying of hypothermia.

I am annoyed that my kids don’t let me nap during the days I have to work….but thankful for their little grins and beautiful smiles.

I am annoyed that both my mom and aunt have breast cancer….I am thankful that they caught it and everything will be okay in the end.

I am annoyed that my mother is starting to lose her hair from her treatments (or sad would be a better word)…I am thankful because I believe she is going to get the thick hair she always wanted when it grows back.

I am annoyed that I am not living back in Florida with my family and friends yet….I am thankful for all the wonderful friends I have made online that help me (most of the time) to stay sane LOL in my lonely world.

I am annoyed that I have not found a church I feel “home” at here…I am thankful for the church I will go back to when I move to Florida.

So now it’s your turn, 2 questions today…

Do you put weight on and get gross like I do in the winter (every single one of you better say yes or I am going to block you all from my blog)?

What are you annoyed and thankful for today?

Hi! I'm Toni. I am a happily married, christian, momma of 3 living on Florida's sunny Gulf Coast. I am a lifestyle blogger and Seint Arist. I started blogging when my last child was born as a way to share my love of all things travel, cooking, beauty, recipes, and more. Now pull up a chair, grab a glass of sweet tea and let's get to know each other. I truly hope you enjoy getting A Daily Dose of Toni!

    You are teeny, tiny! If you are pudgy then I am beyond disgusting.
    I do think your mom’s hair will grow back thicker.

    I am disgusted with my limitations, yet thankful for a loving, caring family.

    Of course I put on weight, it is nature’s way of survival for those living in cold climates. Why fight what is natural.
