Independance Day- My Favorite Day of the Year

The 4th of July is my favorite holiday. Not just because of the fireworks, food and alcohol but because of what it means.

The fact that we are still here and how far our government has come since 1776 is astounding. The risk that those men took in writing the declaration was great. If they had been caught they would have been put to death.

And I love the wording of the declaration. If you haven't read it in awhile I suggest you do.

Weight Loss is Hard (the Exercise Part Anyway)

I really need to lose the weight I gained since my thyroid started acting like a bitch. 30 pounds is a lot and I would really like to fit into my old clothes again. The problem isn't really eating right (though that can be difficult), it's the exercise part that gets me. I'm so tired all of the time (thanks again, thyroid) that I have trouble getting up in time for work in the mornings and an even harder time staying awake when I get home from work. I suppose that exercising will help (good ole' endorphins) so I should get off my butt when I get home every day. I realize I need to stop making excuses and get it done. I need to go back to High School and have my coaches yell at me to get going again. Sports are the only part of HS I actually miss. Coaches are the best. personal. trainers. ever.
