FBSweat Update Week 3 day 1

I got it in and got it done!I’m starting week 3 with a twist. I said in my other posts I wanted to lose weight but not change my diet, well things are finna change. The first 2 weeks on FBSweat I lost around 4 lbs and can see the difference, without any diet changes, which is good! These last 2 weeks I’m going for great! So I will be watching what I eat and counting calories for the next 2 weeks to see if I can achieve better results.

Q & A Series: 100 Funny & Random Questions For Your Husband (Date night conversation starters…)

​So, I thought it would be fun to include my husband in my blog too. We have been together for over 10 years, married for 4, 5 in September. He is a loving husband and an awesome family man and I’m excited to include him!

I wanted to start a series of  Q & As, include my husband, and also offer readers some fun date night conversation starters. 

I came across a link on Pinterest from Quirky Bohemian Mama of 100 questions, and decided to break it down by 10 at a time (9 this time) and post it to my blog every now and then.

If I Could Talk To My Teenage Self, The 1 Thing I would Say…

Mmmmmm. There is lots I would tell my teenage self. Advice such as, keep your credit good, stay in college because there is no better time to tackle it than as a young adult, and most of all…LEARN HOW TO CONTROL YOUR EMOTIONS.

This is an important one for me. I have a short temper and tend to over react. Multiply my attitude today by 10, and you get me as a teen. I know my parents struggled with me as a teen 1st, because my parents never let me forget the terror I put them through, and constantly remind me how my own kids are going to give it back to me times 20. It’s all funny now but it was no laughing matter then. lol. 2nd I know I wasn’t easy to deal with because, I witnessed it, I know my attitude was shit! I couldn’t control it though, I couldn’t get a handle on it no matter how much I tried to tell myself to get it together. I still struggle with it today, but with techniques I taught myself through research, I am able to handle myself better. 

Not being able to control my emotions and anger, affected my relationship with my parents and siblings, ans even with my husband (we met young) we struggled (not just because of my attitude and anger, but that def contributed to our problems), and I battled with myself daily trying to forget whatever it was I was angry, sad, hurt about instead of just dealing with it and finding ways to fix it.

Negativity, anger, hurt, jealousy, and being insecure are all hard emotions and feelings to overcome, especially as a young adult. If only I could have taught my teenage self…
