A peek into my world as I continue my journey. Just be prepared as I am not always G-rated. This is fitness! It comes with the territory at times...lol ;)
Born in Oregon. Moved to the Houston area when I was eleven. Lived a year in Mississippi too. Then came back to Houston. I moved back to Oregon to graduate high school. Got busy with life. Moved back to Houston in the Spring of 2010 and here I am...
I am a work in progress myself and I love to share my story: I have the typical all-American Mom story. I was generally on the go all throughout my 20's which kept me at a size 12/14. Then at 29 I became pregnant with my son. I met and moved in with a man and we slipped into family life. It was then that I began to put myself last. I was so busy over the years taking care of everyone but me, that I started putting on weight. It was slow at first so it didn't seem to really bother me. Well, to be honest, I stopped caring. Years into the relationship, I knew I was unhappy but didn't want to uproot the life my son knew. So I suffered in silence mostly. And I turned to food. I ate when I was tired, I ate when I was bored. I just....ate. When he and I got together I weighed around 160 and when he and I split up, 9 years later, I weighed my heaviest of 245+ (I really don't know my exact weight but this was the last weight at a doctor appt 6 months prior). I have a story like so many that I know I can help inspire you! I suffered from depression for many years and just didn't care. That has all changed. And if I can get my heavy butt up and moving...anyone can! It only takes that first step...the rest comes a lot more easier! So listen while I share my life on this page and maybe I can inspire you too
Mission: First and foremost is to get myself healthier. Second, I want to share my story with everyone so they know that I am real and have the same/similar issues that they have. And if we do this together....the possibilities are endless!
Operating as usual
OMGsh! I am going to make these!!! Making my mouth water just looking at them...lol

I just saw this and had to share. Because it is so true! We are all different and shouldn't compare our journey to others!
[11/26/16] I sure hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had to move onto a Plan B as I woke up with sniffles and can't be around either of my parents now due to their health issues. My mom has COPD pretty bad and my step dad is getting ready to go in for open heart surgery soon (triple bypass). So obviously their health is a priority. But we did have an amazing day spent with some special people. I must say I am so very blessed! And OMGsh I am so excited for Christmas this year!!! It has been quite some time that I have been in this festive of a spirit
No...no...no! This is NOT how you do it! giggle Have a fantastic Monday y'all!! ;)
And don't you ever forget it!! ;)
[10/05/16] For the first time in I don't know how long...I am stuffed up, slight congestion and feel like poop :( I can't recall the last time I even had a cold! I hardly get sick anymore! It is true what they say....food is medicine! When I embarked on a healthier lifestyle I noticed these changes within me for sure. And it is apparent to me that I have been neglecting myself lately. Goodness, I need to get back to being responsible! Nobody but me knows what my body needs. So here is to getting back to organic yumminess quickly
The scale is the Devil! ;) If your clothes fit better and the scale isn't moving....trust the process! You'll see how well your sacrifices are paying off soon enough!
I mean really...how can you be anything but fabulous?!!! I hope everyone has an amazing day!! I know I sure will! ;)
You have heard it said over and over....you cannot out work a bad diet!!
If you are not eating as Clean as possible (80% clean) you may want to reevaluate what you are doing. To get optimum results drink half your weight in water daily and eat by the 80/20 rule. Which may equate to a cheat MEAL not cheat DAY once a week. It sounds impossible but it isn't when you truly set your MIND where you want to be. So take some time and figure out what you want to accomplish. And if you ever have any questions, I can try and answer them for you!! I have been doing this for awhile and have plenty of ideas and tricks ;) Best of luck to you all! Hope you all have had a fantabulous day!!
Um.....no! Just....NO! haha Thought you would like a little humor for your Tuesday ;)
I just saw this and wanted to share. So consider this as my PSA for the day

As we know, there are so many benefits to losing weight. But can I just say...it is soooo expensive! I have to replace my whole damn wardrobe! :) :) Granted it's the best feeling ever! I am now in a Large top and sneaking up on Medium as we speak! My pants size is shrinking...as well as my ass...woo hoo! And all the gym time is helping where I needed it most! My problem area(s) are disappearing and I LOVE it!
I am living proof that when you finally make positive changes in you life, start putting YOU first, ditch the issues that cause you constant stress...beautiful things start happening! I feel like a caterpillar who changed into a butterfly! Some have labled me a Phoenix rising from the ashes! ;) Because this new Me? I AM unstoppable and prove it every day! Nothing or no one will EVER hold me down again! We only get one chance at this life...make it count! #NoRegrets #JustLessonsLearned
Start this month off great!! I know you have it in you!! ;) Even starting 'small' adds up over time! You've got this!!
I use coconut oil for so much, I have to buy the huge containers! ;) Good stuff!
Every BODY is beautiful!! Have a fabulous day everyone!! Make it count!!
Life is full of ups and downs and more twists and turns in the road than we like. But "everything in life is a lesson and not a life sentence!" When you finally cut the negative out of your life and the dark clouds are gone...it is THEN that you truly find your purpose and shine!! #BecauseYouAreWorthIt #DontEverLetAnyoneDullYourSparkle
