Bad Habits..... leaving them behind!

Ok. So i have always had some bad habits.. everyone does! but i am officially going to leave most of them behind. the reason for some (but not all) are because I want to lose weight. For the longest time i have known that i have been gaining weight and i kept saying i'll start to diet, or i'll start going to the gym, or something.. but it lasts for about a week and then it's over and done with. Well, i tried my spring clothes on and most of them fit, but either not comfortable or you can see a love handle or something that shouldnt be seen. SO.. my solution, blog about it and also ask for help from friends and family. please encourage me to not continue the bad habits! .. these are some habits i want to leave behind. Heres my list of my top 10 habits that i'm getting rid of!
1. Belching - i dont know why, its not lady like, its not normal, but i find myself burping (did i just admit that?)

2. Nail Biting - after being in my microbiology class and learning about all the things that live under your nails should be enough for me to stop, but i keep finding myself biting.. its bad for my teeth, as well as being bad for my body.

3. Arguing - most of the time i am right (i'm not just being cocky), but as i have found out sometimes it is not necessary and the topic isn't important to argue about. I find myself always arguing (not always a bad arguing) but always trying to prove a point or to be right.

.4. Sleeping in - i know that every once in a while i should be able to sleep in.. not all day! so i'm going to work on it.

5. Caffeine - i know it won't kill me, but i dont know why i drink it. Every time i do drink it, i feel BLAH so why do i do it? i dont know! cravings! and i have fell IN LOVE with the new PEPSI THROWBACK with the REAL SUGAR!

6. NOT taking vitamins - yep im going to start taking daily vitamins! i dont think i get enough

7. Candy - you'd think i dont eat a lot of candy because brady doesn't like it, but i swear its like i eat it more. whenever we go to the store, or the gas station i find myself stocking up on candy because i know he won't eat it. BAD HABIT..... and it doesnt help that i just found the new m&m's that are coconut... this one's going to be a hard one!8. NOT cooking - it gets hard being at school and work, but i honestly think if i made home cooked meals more it would actually benefit me and brady both in more ways than one! Ordering out- i guess this one goes along with cooking more, but its a bad habit! me and brady order food ALOT or we go grab something.. YEP, that one's out too!

9.Eating TOO much - I just don't know what good porportions are so i just keep eating when food is in front of me.. BAD idea. I have not got out a candy dish, nore have I been buying chips... i just keep eating and eating.. that ones on the list of destruction!


10. NOT WORKING OUT LIKE I SHOULD! - i have a membership but i dont go. i'm going to start going, AND daisy would love walks, so i'm going to start taking her on walks as well. i always complain about running and that my feet hurt or that i dont have good shoes to work out in. So does brady because he walks on concrete all day at lowes.. SO we BOTH got new shoes :) nike shocks for both of us. he got all black, and i got white with blue!

My New Hobby... SEWING

ok... so lets first remember that i am WAY busy, and yet i still try and find things i should try to do! so.... the other night, i had a motivational moment. Brady and i were at macey's and he wanted to go look at the fishing magazines.. so while i was over there i started looking through the quilt magazines.. YEP I'M GOING TO START SEWING again! i got a sewing machine from my mom last year for my birthday and have used it only a few times... This is the first thing i have done with it.
I made this blanket for brady christmas of 08 while we were dating. I thought i did really good, so i took it over to my grandma's house.......... she had to square it up for me cause it wasn't perfectly square..... I finished tying it and then she again had to help me with getting the binding on.. i finished the binding, but she had to walk me through the steps of how to get it onto my quilt! SO i am soooo grateful for her help, and me and brady have LOVED this blanket!
I am going to start sewing again, and i have already made my list of things i want to make! some are little things, and some are big! :) its going to be way fun.... cheer for me, and that i won't be getting too frustrated.. for the next month i am going to be busy with school... BUT i am going to try and do one project a month... (that is giving me a time limit that i hopefully can make, cause some projects take over a month to finish....) so we'll see! but with the help from my grandma, i'm sure if i get lost and need help she'll know what to do!!!
And, I am so grateful that she has helped me in the past, and that she has a passion for it! after i learn all this sewing.. maybe i'll move on to crochetting.... that will be a lot LATER!

got my supplies and i'm ready to go............. HERE I GO! 1. 2. are some pics of me starting my Table Topper! its not a runner, and not a table cloth.... so its a table topper!!! sew lets get back to business! here are the fabrics i'm using.... and me starting to cut away! wow.. its gonna be a long day!

10 honest truths.. suprizing, yet different.

So the deal is this, I just have to write 10 honest things about myself. Honest and somewhat surprising or entertaining. After my 10, I get to tag people. So here goes......

1. I love my husband. DUH, haha but even when he is funny at times he should be serious, and when he makes stupid jokes, and when he forgets to do things... all in all.. i love everything about him.

2. I love my family. Brady is my new family, but my parents are the best. I know i put them through hell growing up, with all my rebelious stages and different friends i hung out with. But they stuck by me and i love them. also my sisters they are the best friends i could EVER ask for! i love them with all my heart and i dont know anyone better God could have chosen for me.

3. IN-LAWS aren't that bad! i have the best in-laws i could ask for. They love me, and include me and i feel as though i've been a part of the family forever, not just for the past year. My parent-in-laws are kind, understanding, and i'm glad we stay in contact with them as much as we do. As far as brother and sister- in laws... wow, who would have known i would and could get a long with in laws soooo much.... they aren't just in laws. they are friends.

4. Daisy is my best friend. Not too suprising, but after a long hard day of work and school i just want to go home and be with her and brady..... i dont really care to see our other friends as much when i'm tired, but those two make my night complete. and she's cuddled up right next to me while i type.... what a good companion

5. I love sewing... I used to not think i'd like it! but i have started a project and its getting better every day. i just wish i was faster at it!

6. I am lazy....... i should work out, but i dont, i should take daisy on walks, but i dont. I should clean the house, but i get sick of doing it by myself all the time, so i dont. I should study, but i dont, lets see............ i sleep as MUCH AS POSSIBLE!

7. on the other hand, i am very organized and an over-achiever most times! when i want something done it happens then, when i set my mind to do something.. no doubt it gets done!

8. Will Ferrell is my favorite actor.... hes funny and a good actor, but there is nothing about him that i think is hot... who has a favorite actor that doesnt even look good...... i guess i'm one of the low few. but matthew mcconaughey is my all time love! 

9. i wish i went to church more. I love the church and want to go, but brady works every sunday and i dont want to go alone. enough said... maybe i'll get the courage one day!

10. last but not least, I love to travel! before we got married i felt like i could go anywhere, now we have responsibility and a dog, and we're newlywed with no money! we'll see if i ever get that dream back of traveling! 

most of the people i would tag are people that look at my blog all the time, but are already tagged, so i hope you guys all see you're tagged
