Just admitted to Rockdale Medical Center. On morphine and kinda loopy right now. But my nurse likes me and hooks me up with Jello! Here is a pic so you know I am working hard to get better! Just letting everyone know I am in my room I am ok. I am also feeling much […]

Today, I learned you can’t run from your problems but maybe running to help fix your problems will help. My mom said take two days to be depressed all you want. But come Monday you are pulling up your big girl panties and fixing it! There has to be tons of people going through what […]


As I am working toward a better healthier me, I found myself searching for something to try for living a vegetarian lifestyle. When I came a upon the Beyond Burger from Beyond Meats. So, I had to see what all the fuss was about regarding the beyond burger from beyond beef. I had never tasted […]

Well it has been a rough few weeks. A few days after I tried to do the 2 day Juice detox. Although this had nothing to do with the detox oddly enough something caused me to have serious pains all over. I ended up in the hospital and found out I had Temporal Arteritis and Polymyalgia Rheumatica.

I have spoken about finding your motivation before.  Well, I think I found one of them, and it is 2 wonderful ladies who have been friends for some time.   Last year I use to walk religiously every morning. This quickly became a huge part of why I lost 50 pounds a year ago. It […]

I absolutely need a day like today. With the world on the brink of an apocalypse. Stress has been an all time high. I mean I have felt the tension in my eyeballs. So here is what I did today to make my day mine and breaks away from the mindless zombies craving for my […]

No words can describe the loss I feel for you on Mother’s Day, your birthday, or any other day for that matter. You always had great advice. Gave the best hugs. Made me laugh till milk came out of my nose. But losing you is so unfair. I see you talk to me in my […]

I hate it but sometimes being friends with someone for over 20 years doesn’t make them a quality friend. Every 7 years every molecule in a persons body will change, including your brain. Experience and environment have a lot to do with that. I am not the person I was in 2014. If you time […]

When you choose to not work with someone because they’re a women (no matter the reason) even when they are successful, skilled, talented or with a lot of achievements you end up doing yourself a huge injustice and you set the world back another 50 years. Just because a women decides to work in an […]

Bob Marley once said: “You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before, she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect—you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you […]

I am still a big girl, and I know I still have a ways to go. Just staying motivated and positive… Here is a thing I try to remember. I am a whole lot less of the big woman I use to be. I feel so much better. No headaches no heartaches. Progress takes time. […]

YOU HAVE BEEN ASSIGNED THIS MOUNTAIN TO SHOW OTHERS IT CAN BE MOVED. -Unknown   Sharing food for thought… On March 7th I started having complications with my heart. I had high blood pressure high enough to produce a stroke. I was in urgent care and the hospital 4 times during those 3 weeks and […]

Another 4.35 miles today. I really love this Fitbit. I can sync it to my phone and it instantly updates. Now I can focus on the road ahead send calls to my voicemail that can wait, with the caller ID feature.  

THIS OLD ROAD…. Feels good to be walking my trail again! 8 miles today people! I got my Psycho DeVilles and Nikes. Seems like a GREAT COMBINATION! Mile tracker don’t fail me now!

Happy Mother’s Day! you have to read my card from my son it is too funny! I love this and by the way I am 21 lol jk ok ok I am 37!

This is my beautiful Mother. I was struggling a bit with this today because it has been 10 years since she passed. They say it doesn’t get easier it just gets different. I guess they are right. But the 10 marker is exceptionally hard. Not sure why. These next few months are difficult it starts […]

I was hit by a truck on i20 and sadly the driver left the scene. It was a black older truck. My car is totaled and I have a bad concussion. My forehead hit the Handel bar near the front windshield. My airbags did not deploy so I hit the Handel bar with my head […]

In order to get my 3 miles in for today I need to walk around this small track 15 times. Sometime going around and around you start to get super bored. Today I decided to send silly pictures to my virtual walking buddy. She laughed!

3-mile sprints in the rain. Hell yes, I am! Sometimes you have to do what you have to to get those moments in. When traffic is heavy on the road I walk I usually go behind the school and take it on the track.

Be generous with your emotions too. In the process of cleaning I found these two things together. A generosity coin my mom gave me and a picture of me and her. When she gave me this coin she said remember to be generous with your emotions too. Being mean has never been natural to me. […]

Just adding progress photos to my weight loss still have work too do but wow these photos of me at the Rockabilly Luau are blowing my mind.  I am super excited about what I am starting to see! LOVE IT.   

What an amazing time I had at the Udder Mudder yesterday with my gal pal! She was awesome really kept me going even when I said I can’t or I wanted to quit she was there for me every step of the way. Real friends and awesome teamwork. This mud run was a life-changing experience. […]

I don’t know how it is possible this week but I lost .5 pounds. I have been real bad with the eating. Imagine what I could have done if I had applied myself this week. KEYWORDS THIS WEEK: focus and determination make good decisions. I am about to reach another BIG GOAL. It will happen […]
