Update post…missed you all


Hi all!! Sorry I have not been blogging of late. I have not been the best blogger around ūüė¶¬† I have not been too good health wise and then everything else. It’d been a long few days and hopefully we all got over the hump.

My health went from having allergy issues to having a full blown cold (which I am getting over). It was awful between the sneezing and dizziness I don’t know which was worse…ugh!! Then on top of that my sciatic nerve decided it wanted to act up. And as anyone who has a sciatic nerve issue knows how painful that is. Every time¬†I moved the pain would go all the way up my back to the tips of my toes.¬†:O

Well on to better things, looks like we are able to get a new roof on the house. Finally the insurance agreed and we will be getting a new one installed in the next week or so. I am so glad for that. It was about time. The last storm we had I guess was the last straw for the insurance and they agreed. YAY!!

My kids are basically finished for the school year and we are planning for the following year. My daughter is going to be in the 7th grade and my son is starting High School next year.¬† OMG!!!¬† It’s hard to imagine when I look at my kids to believe how tiny they were. Now they are almost adults. My daughter is discovering what she truly is capable of. I love to watch her do her work because she still has that “little girl” surprise about things when she discovers new things. But she tries so hard to act like an “adult”…lol!!!¬† My son is¬†so ready to get into¬†the 9th grade.¬†He is going to start on the¬†Honor’s Courses this year and will continue through High School.¬†He is so determined to be the best but he still¬†“needs” mama even though it might be a little grudgingly…lol!!

Well looks like I’m back in the blogsphere…my regular posts will start tomorrow. I hope I still have you all around. Have a great day everyone!!!

Fitness Challenge Week 19 and Monthly Check in 10/26


Ok I did not reach my goal for the month but I did not gain anything extra (even with all the cake and other not so healthy things) that’s all that counts at this moment. I really wanted to be at 168 by the end of the month but you know what it I ok. I am not going to stress about it. Because you know why? I know what I have to do and I know I will do it. I am going to keep my goal at 168 and I am going to do it!!

I know I have said in other posts that weight loss is not my only goal and it’s not. I have to reset myself both mentally and physically. I have to get out of that state of mind that I go to food for any and everything. I have to remember that food is not my enemy but my state of thinking is. Not my self esteem but my laziness, my looking for the easy way to do things, my saying instead of me getting up and cooking lets go out to eat or order pizza…I will conquer this.

SO here is to next month…11/25/2016 – 168 pounds

Height: 5′ 7″

Weight: 173.8

Bust: 38 in

Waist: 32 in

Hips: 38 in

The love of my life


Being married can¬†take a toll sometimes on you, but when you have a spouse who will truly do anything for you it makes things better. I have an amazing partner that honestly I have no idea what I would do if he was not there. He’s my companion, my lover, and truly my best friend. I could go on forever about how good he is to me even though sometimes it isn’t as good as it should be. I mean come on we’re both human…lol!!

What I am trying to say, is that I am so glad you are mine sweetheart!! I would not change a thing!! Here’s to 17 years with an amazing man, that loves me just the way I am ūüôā

Happy Anniversary baby!!

Life…it’s not all that bad


Sometimes when you least expect it life becomes so difficult. Now I know what you are thinking, is this the same girl who the other day was saying how great her life is? Yes I am the same one. Even¬†though I am the same one…life still can be difficult.¬†Sometimes it’s like the world just keeps putting one big block in front of you for you to come to a complete stop. Or it puts all of these little holes or pebbles to make you stumble even though you keep¬†plowing through them all.¬†It’s hard sometimes to keep doing. I know…I live it too. But what I¬†also know is that¬†even though it seems the bad does outweigh the good at times we have to keep going. We have to keep doing. We have to keep figuring ways to get around that big block. And when we stumble on those pebbles, we have to keep walking. We have to remember…it doesn’t stay that way. The good always comes back around. Life is not as bad as it could be.

Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.
