Trying to do the right thing...

440 (+/-) calories, 40 minutes in the gym this afternoon. Once again, my kids made me go. It's been a hell of a day.

I slipped on the ice this morning when I was getting into the van. And then this jerk was SO rude to me when I was dropping my kids off. I knew the day would be rough. Thankfully, work went well, and I was in a positive state of mind.

Until I got home and checked the mailbox...

I got a letter from the IRS stating they were levying my bank account for a tax debt. Of course, it's a mess that my EX-ASSHOLE-HUSBAND got us into, but since he is rotting away in jail, who do they go after? Me. Good thing I'm already BROKE and only have had $9 in the bank.

SO I spent the next 2 hours on the phone with the IRS...

I had already promised the kids on the way home from school that we were going to the gym tonight. When I came out of my room where I'd been talking on the phone, the kids were changed and dressed and ready to go. So guess what? I got ready, too. I figured some good 'ole exercise would help clear my head. And I was right.

I am tired as HELL right now. Can't wait to sleep well and wake up in the morning to do it all over again!

I swear, I try to do the right thing. I try to be good to people, and treat people the way I want to be treated. For some reason, I just can't seem to catch a break. But just like with the weight-loss, I refuse to give up. My time HAS to be around the corner!


  1. I get ya! Seriously. I feel like I am constantly getting shit on, taken advantage of, or not being made a priority when I should be. It's tough sometimes to continue to do the right thing, but you have to. You have to keep doing what is right and believe that it will come back to you.

    Hang in there!

  13. Hi Hollie, I fully understand where you are coming from. Sometime it seems like everyone I come in contact with is out to hurt me, use me, abuse me, steal from me or something, lol.

    Just keep that positive attitude and you will do fine. What goes around comes around and that goes for the positive too.

    I saw the results you have been having on your weight loss endeavors and you are amazing. I am on my own journey right now and I am down 40 pounds in the last 4 to 5 months. I still have along way to go but all of use, no matter how far we have let our bodies go, can take back our lives.

    Delete this part of you wish, but I am also blogging about what I am doing to change my life. Check it out if you get time.

    Keep up the great work!

Lots of great free resources, recipes, etc.
