Bring It On Monday

I have to say, I'm welcoming Monday with arms wide open. A new week? Bring it on! 

This weekend was full of celebrating and good times. I ate a little too much of the not-so-good-for-you stuff and because of that, I have decided to avoid the scale. It's just going to tell me what I already know -- I need to get it together! I don't need that reminder. I'm ready make today {and every day of this week} count!

I have decided to keep track of everything that I eat today in a little notepad and I'll be sharing it with you all tomorrow. Accountability, accountability, accountability. I'm also going to do a workout today, and I'll share that with you all, too. {Keep an eye out for my update tomorrow -- I need you guys to stay on me, now.} It's nearing the end of the month and I want to end it with at least some sort of a loss on the scale! More importantly, I want to end the month feeling the benefits of eating healthier.

This weekend, we got to celebrate my husband's first Father's Day! It was so sweet, really. Piper and her dad have this amazing bond that was formed from the time she arrived. Piper was born via c-section and so it was just the two of them for her very first couple hours in this world. During that time, I swear Piper and her dad pinky-promised to be each other's favorites because that is exactly what has been going down, ever since.

If you're new to this blog, I think you need to read this post in order to get a glimpse into how much this guy means to me. Then, take however much he use to mean to me before we had Piper, and multiply that by like a bazillion. That's what happened when he became the father of our child. The way he loves me, and the way he loves our daughter is inspiring. He inspires me to be a better version of myself, and encourages me in anything I do. I know he'll do the same for our Piper Grace; I can already see it in his eyes when he looks at her and smiles.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves. Love never fails. {1 Corinthians 12:4-8}

I am blessed to be able to replace the word "love" in the above verse with "Nick" because love is what he shows us every single day.

Readers, how was your weekend? Who else is ready to make this week count?
