Kelsey and me on Bri's 20th Birthday

I have 43 pics in my gallery


2015- The struggle and adventure continue!

Loving life and my kids and the man in my life! I will push forward and stay committed to losing the weight and getting (and staying below 200)! One day at a time is my new motto! I have the Moto 360 and can't wait to see if it keeps me focused.

Time to STOP making EXCUSES and do what I set out to do so long ago. It is finally the RIGHT TIME to finish what I started and get back on track!

Time to STOP making EXCUSES and do what I set out to do so long ago. It is finally the RIGHT TIME to finish what I started and get back on track!

My daughters are growing up on me... one moved to Louisville after getting a job with FDA as investigator and other just graduated from Georgetown University and is going to law school in Knoxville at UT this fall! I am a super proud mommy. I am committed to changing for life, just need to have my motivation pumped up again. THIS WILL BE THE YEAR I WILL STOP MAKING EXCUSES FOR MY PAST AND CHANGE EVERYTHING TO BE THE PERSON I WANT TO BE IN THE FUTURE!

I am tired of always being behind the camera because I hate the way I look.

I am tired of not feeling like hiking to waterfalls that I love.

I am tired of being uncomfortable in everything I wear!



Watch your thoughts ; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny

My PLAN is to get back to going to Wholesale fit crossfit.

I WILL start Shaun T.'s Rockin Body series at home, because I love to dance and need to dance like No One Is watching and shed these pounds.

I feel so invigorated and can't wait to start seeing results again.

I will complete a 5K and 10K this year!

It is now time to turn over a new leaf and for me to STOP making excuses and just DO IT. I am committing to do what it takes to get myself in a better position and to feel better about life.

*I am DONE always being uncomfortable in my clothes!
*I am DONE with not wanting to be in front of the camera!
*I am DONE with not being the person my kids can look up to on weight problems.
* I am DONE allowing my life to be destroyed by my Divorce which was way back in 2008
*I am DONE allowing myself to make excuses for not losing this weight.
*I am DONE not drinking the water I need to drink to get Healthy.
*I am DONE making excuses for not going to the YMCA and pushing myself during exercise.
*I am DONE being a weak person who can't stand up for what she believes is right.
**I am DONE with needing everyone else to make me Happy and ready to take control of my own Destiny.

Favorite Quotes:
'Lord, I love you and I need you, come into my heart, and bless my family, my home, my friends, and me.. Amen. '

ANGELS EXIST but some times, since they don't all have wings, we call them FRIENDS

There are many things in your life that will catch your eye, but only a few will catch your heart....pursue those...


When things go wrong,
as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging
seems all uphill,
Keep your spirits high
for through thick and thin,
You must carry on
if you are to win.

Life is strange
with its twists and turns
As everyone of us
sometimes learns.
It challenges us
to often give up
When we could have captured
the victor's cup.

So turn your failures
inside out,
Press them on past
fear and doubt.
Never mind if things
hold you back a bit,
You'll come out on top--
but you mustn't quit.

'The will of God will never take you where the
Grace of God will not protect you.'

Special Quote:
Good friends are like stars.You don't always see them but you always know they are there.

are you "here"? I'm BACK! LOL! I gotta lose some lbs before the new year and feel better ringing it in. I'm also concerned if I don't, I'll just put on my big bulky sweatshirt and gain more weight. I'm logging my food on My Fitness Pal (its just easier for me) but using this for some inspiration and encouragement. Also trying to get myself walking and moving more! Hope you are doing great! It will be 2016 before we know it... crazy!

emoticon Happy Birthday, DONE GIRL

Persons born on the Cancer-Leo Cusp can be a bit volatile, swinging quickly from one extreme to another. Movement of one sort or another is familiar to them; physical movement, emotional movementÂ… it is all one and the same to them. They often appear shy one minute and then they are stealing the spotlight the next.
Combining Fire and Water together in a Cancer-Leo Cusp makes for an interesting study. Their vibrant energy is tempered by emotional sensitivity. In turn, their emotions are tempered by the intense ambition they have. They are graceful and strong. Both attributes serve them well.
The fastest way to success for Cancer-Leo is to even out their highs and lows. Learning to maintain stability can pay off for them in a big way. Self-discipline can be attained without losing their spontaneity. By finding their calm center, they can remain confident in themselves.
Cancer-Leo is sensitive to criticism. They may come across as so self-assured that they appear to be living in a fantasy world. They have a strong affinity to food. Imaginative in the kitchen, they can work miracles with a meal. They enjoy pleasure and social gatherings. They don't care to be alone most of the time. They are devoted to their partner. They are generous and creative in their relationships with others. They are good at empathizing with their loved ones.
The Cusp of Oscillation creates people who are traditional, nurturing, flamboyant, ambitious, sensitive, proud, creative, expressive, inspiring, cheerful, practical, romantic, passionate, realistic, generous and emotional. They may also suffer from self-centeredness, hyper-sensitivity, and have dependency issues.
Cancer-Leo may be an intellectual genius or they may be unscrupulous. They have excellent memories. They don't forget any detailÂ… ever. They are fair, and will stand by both friend and foe in times of struggle. At the same time, they may have trouble letting go of grudges or slights they feel, whether real or imagined.
This sign can conflict with Cancer's need for solitude and Leo's need to be the center of attention. If they can reach a comfortable balance, they will be much happier. Since both signs are affectionate and devoted, this rarely causes disruption unless they stray from their partner. Both signs hold family dear and love to spend time in their home. While Leo can stand up to some emotional bruising, Cancer cannot. They may be hurting deep inside and putting on a brave face. While Cancer makes their presence known through their works, Leo likes to make a splash. Those born on the Cancer-Leo Cusp may end up somewhere in betweenÂ… shy with a bit of flamboyance. Both like to be in control, so this sign may end up trying to run the lives of their family members.
