Ready for this rant?
It seems like things just keep getting crazier and crazier around here.
On Wednesday I posted this as my FB status:
"dear satan: step away from my life. from my husband's life. from my children's lives. from my marriage. from my family's life. you have NO place here. Jesus is, has been and always will be the winner. So back the HECK OFF."
But He didnt listen, he just keeps throwing bombs. I hate it. I hate that there has to be so much crap that we have to walk through. I hate that life isnt easy and painless.
In my job we teach teens and families about healthy relationships, about staying sexually pure and righteous. We teach how damaging sex can be outside of marriage and how damaging pornography and other sexual images can be to ANYONES brain.
I hate that there are things like pornography and garbage that pollutes our minds.
As a matter of fact...I HATE that our society tells us that its ok for men and women to look at other naked men and women....people who they are NOT married to. That its OK for women to send naked pictures of themselves to men (or other women) that its OK for our teens to have sex with whoever they choose.....I HATE that our world tells us that its ok for a women to dress like a prostitute to go to the store.
Here some advice:
If you wouldnt want your kids to wear it, dont wear it
If you wouldnt want God to read it, dont read it
If you wouldnt want your God/wife/parents/husband/kids to see what you are watching DONT WATCH it.
DONT naked or sexual pictures of yourself with your phone. DONT send them to others.
Cover up your kibbles and bits...
When you dress like a hooker, you are causing ALL men AND boys to have two choices....they either look at you, or look away. When men see skin, they are tempted to think about sex. And when they think about sex, they have  a hard time stopping that thought.
I am SO sick of this world.
I used to be a girl who thought it was hot to walk around with my boobs hanging out of my shirt...or a skirt so short you could see my hoo ha. But I am changed. And now it makes me SO SAD and sick to see girls and women dress like that. Have some respect ladies.
You are worthy and beautiful without having to disrespect yourself.
And men, have some balls. Dont fall into temptation. Dont watch porn. Dont check out other women. Keep your minds focused on GOOD things. Love your wife, with ALL of your heart and soul and BODY.

Philippians 4:8

The Message (MSG)
8-9 Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.
OK, rant over.
Happy Wednesday!

I have always wondered why and how people could be addicted to drugs and alcohol.
I watch shows like Intervention...and think holy wow...those people are messed up. How can they let something take over their life like that. How can they let a substance control them like that. When see or know someone who is all strung can they live like that. Why cant they just get clean and STOP?
I smoked off and on from when I was 14 until about 2 years ago. My parents smoked and so it was easy for me to pick up the habit. But I was always able to stop when I wanted to. I wasnt addicted to smoking. I haven't had a cigarette in a little over 2 years...and the smell of smoke makes me sick. I think about it sometimes...but dont feel the need to smoke. My husband smokes...and I hate it. I am always asking nagging him to stop. I tell him things like "if you loved me, you would quit" or "I am never going to kiss you unless you stop".  He was a smoker when I married him...we both were. It makes me mad that he cant just STOP. But he is addicted.
I never really realized that I am an addict. I am addicted to food. I think about it when I wake up, when I am at work, and when I go to sleep. I love food...I love cooking food, trying new has been my comfort.
Until this past month I never realized HOW addicted to food I was. When I was on my 2nd week of no fast food and no crap..I felt SO sick. My head stomach hurt..and I craved taco time and french fries. My body was literally going through withdrawals from FOOD. are you kidding me? Aren't withdrawals for people who are addicted to METH? People who need to shoot drugs into their veins to feel something? Well..I have news for you...when you put any kind of junk into your body whether its meth, cocaine or a cheeseburger....your body gets used to it. You get used to it. I never understood that I was addicted to food.
Thats just crazy.
So here goes.
My names is Heather...I am a food-a-holic. Food has become my joy and comfort. Instead of what I fuel my body with. I am getting clean. I am giving up my addiction. But I will always be a food a holic....just  like someone who is an alcoholic...they never stop being an alcoholic, they just stop drinking.
God made our bodies perfect. The emotions and sensations that He lets us experience are a million times stronger than the high that any drug or substance we can put into our body can give us. That's pretty awesome. But we all use something...we are all addicted to something.
So whats your addiction? Food? Porn? The Internet? Drugs? Pepsi? Vodka? Sex?

Now I understand addiction. I understand how you cant just STOP. But I also understand that YOU CAN change.

Love day.

Happy Valentines Day sweethearts!
I am SUPER blessed to have the BEST VALENTINE ever. He loves me like no one has ever loved me.
He left me this note on the mirror...telling me that he JUST loves strings attached!
We celebrated last night and he SPOILED me...
 (A charm for my pandora charm bracelet!)
 (beautiful pink roses - My fav!)
(new running bust my but in the gym)
We went to dinner and then to church and this happened....
It was the first time that I have ever done the Ash Wednesday was cool...I decided to give up reality TV for lent. Because I am super addicted...and a wise person once told me "garbage in, garbage out" So I want to take a break from putting garbage into my mind. Maybe that will help me not be so irritated all the time. Do you ever have those days where everyone annoys you? Yeah...thats been happening to me alot lately.
One of the most important things that I remember today is how much God loves me...and how much I need to love his people. And MY people. My family and my friends...I need to love them like I am supposed to.
I love this verse..1 Corinthians 13..its tells it like it is...
If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.
Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.
8-10 Love never dies.
Hope you all have a fabulous day...Even if you dont have a valentine today...put on some bright red lipstick...and a tiara... and remember that you are SO loved!

Holy Cow.

Holy Cow...I've been a bad blogger. I suck. Its been like 4 years since I have given you a lovely post to read. You've missed me, I know it.
I've been SO busy, life in the Hot Mess Express Lawless Life has been like a ride on the crazy train fabulous.
Lets see...First of all thank you for all of the SWEET, UPLIFTING, ENCOURAGING comments after I was brutally honest with myself and with you  in this post. I am SUPER blessed to be a part of this blogger world.

 I've been working my booty off at the gym and eating healthy for 2 1/2 weeks now. No fast food....I would kill someone for some cheesesticks and a milkshake. But I havent lost a single flippin pound. Are you kidding me? Awesome. Just Awesome. NO BUENO!
But I am gonna keep going. Rome wasnt built in a day. Well, thats what I hear...I've never been to Rome...but apparently it took a long time to build.
I am travelling this week for I am typing this from my hotel room...I am about to go tear up the "fitness club". Gotta sweat, right? Right.
I want to share two things with you. besides all the nonsense I just shared above
1. Lets talk the Bachelor...Hey Sean...Tierra is CRAY CRAY...send the little gem home and move on. The girl needs Jesus or at least some Prozac.
2. Lets talk working out...just for a sec. (if you wanna peace out at this point its ok...I just need to ask a question!) How many minutes of cardio should I be doing for a good fat/calorie burn? I've been doing 30-45 minutes on the bike at intervals of level 10 and 15. Then I usually do some sprints on the treadmill...but not every time. I HATE THE TREADMILL. Any advice? Do you have a fabulous workout plan you would like to share with me? Por favor?
Ok my little Chicas..I gotta go. But I promise to be back again tomorrow. Happy Humpday!
