Well, I have decided to give ALTERNATIVE medicine a shot. I have been struggling with my Thyroid and traditional doctors for many years. My blood work shows NO issues, but the NODULES in my throat tell a very different story. Due to these conflicting results, I have been left to struggle with YO-YO weight gain, low energy, the whole NINE. I have managed the mood swings with SELF TALK and 5-HTTP on occassion, but that doesn’t ward off the low energy or the cyclical weight gain. Anyone who struggles with hypothyroidism can tell you; once your thyroid is out of whack, no amount of working out is going to stop the weight gain.
Someone told me, if you want different, you have to do different. So I will still be going to by primary care doctor on JUNE 6th for my normal physical, but then I am going to do a follow up visit with an Alternative Health Care Specialist. I am also interested in Thermography. Thermography can tell you if you have tumors in your breast years before self-breast exams or mammograms. Of course, none of this is covered by health insurance, but guess what? I am worth it!

Yep, yep, I got selected once again...
I will be doing a on the 4th of July.
As I have stated on more than one occasion, I am definitely not a RUNNER , but I am a HECK of a POWERWalker/Jogger . I completed the last race in 98 mins, but that was prior to my car accident and knee injury (putting those things behind, I press).
I am stepping out on FAITH. Training started this morning and my goal is to beat my last record. Yes it is a RACE, but I have resolved that my only competition in this LIFE is Me. I will run the RACE set before me and even if don't win by their standards, I am a WINNER by my own.
Peace and Blessings Friends!

I have always desired to run, but for many reasons, I have come to the SAD conclusion that I am not a RUNNER and I am finally OKAY with that!
I can't run but I can DEFINITELY DANCE!
I started Hip Hop ABs Extreme 3 weeks ago and ROCKIN Body last week!
Hip Hop ABs EXTREME is a great workout, it incorporates the basics from the original Hip Hop ABS and Insanity, but if you are a HARD CORE PARTY GIRL LIKE ME and you just love to DANCE, Rockin Body is the way to go. It's an all over, full body workout. The costumes are great, the music is great, I just want to run out and purchase a DISCO ball and some GOLD Lame PANTS!!!
Peace and Blessings FRIENDS !

Today is my oldest daughter's 19th birthday!!
I keep asking myself where did 19 years of my life GO? I remember the day I brought her home from the hospital, now she's a second semester freshman and a National Honor Society Member.
When I look back over my life, is every thing the way I want it to be? Of course not. Am I proud of the choices I've made? Not all of them. Am I the size I want to be? No where near. Are my finances where I'd like for them to be? Really, Really? But what I do have is my health, my strength, I am wiser, I am stronger, I am fearless and the only person that can stop me is ME!!!
I charge each of you, to let nothing stop you from reaching your goals. You're far more Blessed than you think you are...
Peace and Blessing!
Happy Birthday Pumpkin "Maiya"

Woke up this morning, stomach looking flatter, feeling lighter…stepped on the scale and what did I see, 3 more lbs.’ looking back at me (okay that was my futile attempt at rapping).
So I stepped back on the scale just to make sure my eyes weren’t deceiving me and the 3 lbs, were still there. Then I started feeling that way. You know “that way”, the way you feel, when you know, that you know, that you know, you’ve eaten right, exercised and your body hasn’t given you your “props”. Your body didn’t respond like you expected it to. This is usually the point where I tell myself, girl you are FINE as WINE, sharp as NEW MONEY, later for this and go back to doing ME! But not this time, this time my inner man spoke up and said,” Nope, you’re not going to quit on us that easily, check your stats”.
So, I look back at my tracker; calories on point, carbs in line, well surprise, surprise, every day my sodium count as been well over 2200 mg. YICKs!!! There it is there’s my 3 lbs. Hiding behind all that low fat, low cal, low carb processed food. HMMMMM…
So this February, instead of murmuring and complaining about my ADAM, not waking up and finding me (now that’s a BLOG all by itself) I’m going set my intentions on LOVING me like never before.
Stay tuned SP friends.
Peace and Blessings!!!!
