Please bear with this vblog. It's long, but the message in this blog is worth the listen. If you hear clicks in the back ground -it's my mouse acting nuts. I'm so sorry for that. I just wanted to share with you all my breaking free...My breakthru(s) on finding me. Jesus has brought me out of a lot of heart ache and I'm blessed. I'm working on my authentic self, and you can't live right -or walk the right path if you don't understand or have your authentic self. I hope you all take the time to sit down and listen, and the next vblog won't be as long. I hope...

May is here! And I'm so happy to see May, to be in the month of MAY, and my PLANS for MAY is going to rock my world.
Now, I said I was going to share some photos.
So, here is my photo cap over the past few months.
FEB- No photos, was in a funk.
Mar- 196.4 Confessions of a fat chick going was created.
Easter Sunday 185.6
May -184.4 "Yeah!" I was shocked too... I been sweating my "ass" off, not with workouts. Our AC isn't working "again". So, I'm sweating daily with and without workouts, and I'm seeing the benefits, but I still need AC in my home... SOON!
Didn't have time to get a front shot... He was walking in on me while I was taking my update photos this afternoon... MEN! You can never have a private moment with them around -or a joyful shout over what you read down below your feet. Coming soon I will start taking photos of the scale. I said I would start doing this the moment I break 185, and now it's time to start sharing the scale reading below. I can't wait to see how this turns out.
Hula Hoop "DAILY"
Go back into Lifting weights STRONG! I haven't done much weight lifting this year, and it's time to get back into the swing of things. Working with pressing 40 and then back up to 80. My goal is to be pressing 2 reps 2 sets of 100. That's my goal for my up and coming B-day month. Long ways off, but if I set it now I will get there when it's time to get there.
I will also go into the gym and start powerlifting with Benny, I haven't done this in a long time, and I need to get back in the swing of things. I said to Benny this morning -and old high school Physcial Muscle Training partner in school. If I don't get back to into it now I will never build up my strength, and that's what we are working on. My shoulders are killing me, but he. He started me off at 60 2 sets only, and said to me. you aren't as weak as you thought you were... You just needed a damn good spotter to support you and motivate you. And that he did.
So, we are going to be working on my body with weight training in this order. Let's see how Benny plans work for the month of May...
Upper Body "Tuesday"
Lower Body & Core "Wednesday"
All over "Friday" A hell day in the afternoons... ALL my weight training will be done in the AFTERNOONS or EVENING...
Cardio is going to be the hula hoop "DAILY"
Spinning. That I can do "DAILY" as well. Walking is a "DAILY" thing and so is "DANCE" Benny wife Suggested I do the Benny Program. I didn't know what the Benny Program was, but from what I saw on his wife. I think I can do his program. She also SUGGESTED... 2 days a week.. BOOM BOOM BOOM... (SEX).
Ummmmmm..... I think I'm going to have to think about that. My hubby acts like he's an old man at times. I'm happy with the way things are. Let's move some pounds, and then see if we can't upgrade the BOOM BOOM BOOM...
I will be back with a VBLOG of my entire program, and I promise you all.
I will keep you all posted with my weight loss and motivational music blogs.
Let's get ready to BUST a MOVE....
I'm going to start giving weekly workout TIPS on what works different body parts in my V-BLOGS... I'm going to get a Cam soon.. I can't wait. Hubby thinks I need one, we will see what the man finds me.
I hope it's a darn good one, one I can upload my movies onto my PC. The one he got me a week ago didn't work well with my PC, and on top of that. I told him. I need fruit and veggies...
I'm Ready 4 MAY!
OH! BTW... Going for an Job Interview...
Wish me LUCK... I need to get out of this house. Spending too much time here, and the hours works for me and my small side gig...
I have went from a D cup to a C cup. I was upset at first, but then again.
The weight falls and you can't pick and choose where it falls from.
I have lost another inch in each one of my thighs. I'm happy about that.
I give thanks to the hula hooping, because I'm losing inches in my hips and thighs, and I have a pair of Jeans Capris. (Button fly) that I've been wanting to wear ever since I got them. When I put my behind into them today. I was closer to doing the button fly. I hope to be in them by the end of MAY as well. Also, I am in a size 16, but because of my thighs. It depends on the make and the cut. All cuts don't fit this behind, and when I love something -I bust my ass just to get into it and I will make it happen.

I have to give thanks to all the wonderful sparkers who has been very supportive of me on this journey. It's been a few months @ Confessions of a fat chick going... and I must say. I have been a success during this journey. I feel good about all my lessons and I am so blessed.
I'm learning as I push forward on this journey. And the things I'm learning are things that I should have learned a long time ago. I'm blessed to have these friends I have and I am so blessed to be in love with myself. Yes! It's a wonderful blessing and feeling to love yourself, and to feel pretty darn good about yourself. I take pride in myself now, and it's been a long time coming. I'm so thankful for these feelings have beaming within my spirit... and I feel so free.
I'm not down 10 pounds yet, but hey. I can't cry about it. 9.2 is pretty darn good, and I struggled for many months, and to lose most of the weight in March is a blessing within it's self, because when I started 2012 off. I was so sure I was going to start off on a good foot; because of all my this and that. What I know, and what I should be doing with this body of mines.
Now, I'm moving right along in good things and in good faith.
I believe that all things are possible, and I believe in good friendship(s) and the friends that has been there with me through the thickness of it all, and through the goodie good... as well and for always been there for me. They never let me down, and when I needed a lift they reach down and pick me up with words, and when I needed a good talking to -they sent a goodie with some good words to push me forward and those words helped with the keeping on, and I'm so thankful for all the things they have done for me.
So, this is about giving thanks to you all.
Thank you for your April showers of blessings. You words were my showers of blessings, and those words took me higher.
You all blessed me with your words and kindness, and I'm so thankful.
In the afternoon I will be uploading a blog with some photos.
I didn't lose a lot this month, but I'm thankful for what I had lost.
I did yo yo this month, but it's okay. There is no excuse for the yo yo's. We all yo-yo we all understand some weight that is lost is water weight. So I'm not sad at all for seeing the number I read on the scale today.
That will all be in my up and coming post for May 1st and my full out plans to deal with what I plan on dealing with and reaching what I'm setting myself out to reach. I plan on reaching a big "MILESTONE" in MAY, and I won't stop until I get it-get it...
This is what SPARKS is about. MOTIVATION!

Day 41~ Saturday... I was blessed to spend time with my husband Saturday morning. We went to a few yard sales, and also got some dog food for the dogs. The yard sales were busted this weekend, and they normally are a bust when I don't have cash on hand to spare for a few finds. I love my time with my husband, but I have to admit. I'm kinda sick of going to these yard sales, but I do love spending time with my man, and if that's the way I'm going to get it -then I might as well take what I can get. As soon as we got home, I changed right into some workout clothes. Keeping my thinking head wrap (band) on and also my over size earrings. I was too cute to dress myself down, I might as well stay fly and stay all dressed up. So, I put on a pair of blue tights a 2 tank tops. I had on one long one to cover my "butt" and also one that was short and tighter. It really did show off my small waist. My husband was watching me a little tooooo closely, and I found myself falling into this nasty tude.
Really, I had an air about myself. One of those ego trips and no1 was going to knock me down. I felt beautiful and I was so in charge of my life. It's been a while since I felt like this and I didn't plan on backing down for no1. So, I did me, workout, did the hula hoop, pressed some weights, did a little spinning, and had a great afternoon with my baby girl. My oldest had left and went to a b-party that turned into a sleep over, and it was me and Lil' Girl. My husband had went fishing with his nephew and uncle, and I was just doing me. I was just having fun, working out, and staying cute. I was supa dupa fly... I also did my baby girl's hair, and she loves it. She has corn rows across the top with a curly hair sew in, and she loves it. I'm happy that she loves it.
Moving right along...
Sunday, I was in the bed until 11am.
I wasn't in a hurry to get out of the bed. I just wanted to rest.
I was beat from all the fun I had yesterday with my hubby, daughter, and son. When he got home we cooked onion rings, and watched a few movies. I learn sharing calories with my kids is less calories on my behind. We shared a plate of hot onion rings, and we had some more fun. He went to the b-party as well, but my son was not into it. And he was not going to do a sleep over with a bunch of girls. Girls are not eew to him, because he has been talking to the same girl over the past few years, and he promised her he would go home and not spend the night with his friend Jake.
Anyway... My mother sends my son over to wake me up.
Grand mama said to call her. So, I called my mother and she said. I told him to tell you to call me so you would get your butt up. Did you take your sleeping meds? I was beat, but I sure did take those sleeping meds. I didn't rest well for my Saturday doings, and when I got up Sunday morning my hips and thighs were burning. Working them out for over 30 mins with the hula hoop is a job. And I did a little of this and a lot with the hula hoop. It's fun. For the past few days I've been finding it hard to put the hoop down. I will grab it and hula hoop until I break a hard sweat, and on a good day I can hula hoop for 10 mins. without dropping the hoop. Oh... and on Saturday, I fixed my funny shaped hoop. We re-open it on Friday to glue the darn thing. And my husband had this idea of closing it to make sure the monkey glue take hold. So, we did just that. After I notice the funny shape... I fixed it and then I did more more dressing to my hoop. You all will see it in my next hula hooping blog. This time I won't drop the hula hoop.
Anyway... I had to do my kids other grand mother's hair. I got paid good for that. We had pizza and my kids love having dinner at their other grandmama's because she loves doing things like that. We talked about carbs; I suggested that she take in less than 200 carbs per-day, and she is working on low carbs. I think that's a good thing for her.
I think I landed my husband a tree trimming job at her house, and I didn't share the news about that, because my husband is not "cheap" but he will price her right if I ask him too. So, he is going to drop in and check out what she wants done. He is going to need a lift to do these trees; because a lot of it is growing up over the roof. She also has a limb that needs to be taken down, because if it breaks it will hit the house and do some damage...
Moving right along...
Started out for home...call my husband, and he tells me I should have passed on dinner. I cooked him some boil chicken, green beans and corn. He ate it, but he does not care for boil chicken. He's funny like that, and I pulled the skin off of it. He ate some of it he said. I didn't mean for him to eat all of it in the first place. I just wanted to make sure he had something to eat. He never eats when he goes to the race track with his friends, and he goes on and on about the food being high there... So a meal was cooked, and I did my job as a wife.
My shoulders are killing me...
My hips are sore as well. It's all joint soreness...
I even have aches in my thighs, but it's all from hard work.
My weekend was great...
I'm so thankful for having such a wonderful weekend.
I love spending time with my family, and I love a lot of one on one time with my baby girl. She needs my love just as much as I need hers. You know how it is with your youngest child. The youngest is always gonna be your baby.
Thanks for reading my blog...
