Can you believe I am just catching up to the realization it is 2013!!! Holy Cow where did the time go? I do have to say that I am NOT sorry that 2012 has come and gone!!!
Talk about what doesn't kill you making you stronger. It definitely taught me some hard lessons, that I am still having a rough time dealing with but I am a strong woman and I can do this.
I haven't been online as much as I would like to have been but like all of you I'm sure, life gets in the way. But don't think life got in the way of my training and my journey. I have been very busy with my son, my writing and my training. I have my sights set on another competition in the fall and my sister wants me to do a Mud Run with her so kicking up the cardio and crazy boot camp type workouts. Haven't crawled in the mud since I was six but hey why not the spring rain is here and the weather is getting warmer each day, so if you don't see me out on my motorcycle or in the gym, I'll be crawling in the mud with my sister. LOL
I hope everyone is good and kickin it on their journey.
Happy Spring and Thank God for all the good in life.

It has been a rough year for me personally and I have all but disappeared from most of my online sites and I apologize to you all. I felt that I was in no condition to help anyone when I couldn't help myself. It was a year for heartbreak It took me a very long time to believe in myself again and although I am back to being a functioning Human Being, I am not completely over it, when are you ever? But I do have to say I haven't cried in a very long time so that is a good sign. My Faith in God helps me to get through the rough patches and I am thankful that I have great friends and family, without them I don't know what I would do. I have always said to all of you here that life is a journey and I truly believe that, everything happens for a reason. I had to go through this as a sort of right of passage so to speak, It made me realize How strong of a Woman I really am and what a wonderful loving caring son I have, he was there for me the entire time. He became the parent when I wasn't able to and I am so thankful that God blessed me with such a great kid. I realized who my friends are, I mean my true blue, stand by your side, have your back kinda friends and I cant thank them enough for letting me cry in their arms as they dried the tears from my eyes. I also realized that I have an amazing life and I wouldn't trade for the world.
I am back and ready to kick it up another notch. It's time to end the pity party and get back to living life the way it should be. Throw caution to the wind and see what it hits.
This Journey of mine has just started a new chapter and I am writing it every single day.
Its a new year and a new life and and I'll be damned if I'm gonna sit back and watch it go by without me!!!
Happy Journey's everyone.
There is no obstacle I can't jump over as long as I have my Faith in God!!!
I thank Him for the challenges he puts forth that make me a stronger woman!!

As I sit here, I realize that it has been FIVE years since I first embarked on this roller coaster I call my JOURNEY, and I have to say, It has not been easy. My life, my mind, my body and myself as a whole has changed numerous times over these past five years and the one thing that I truly get comfort in is the fact that SparkPeople and my spark friends are still here, some have come and gone, others to return for help to get back on track but everyone is always here. Its somewhere that I can turn to when I'm just not feeling it, or like now, the Holidays have kick my @$$, all I have to do is click and send and here you are, SparkEVERYTHING and so much more. I bet that there are many of you out there who feel the same way.
I just want to say Thanks to all the SPARKPEOPLE behind the scenes, the ones who keep us up to date on the best things to bump up the energy or the Warnings of products that only stop us in our tracks and hurt us on our JOURNEY, for all the latest and greatest in exercise and eating healthy and for Never saying Never, I Thank you.
Thank you to the SPARKIES that encourage and cheer for us when we do good and also give us encouragement when we feel we have failed. Teaching us that, as long as you can get right back up and start over, there is no failure.
Thank you all so much for everything that you do for everyday that you talk us down from that cookie on the counter or that second helping of bread. Thank you.
We are all motivators to each other and I am flattered to have been chosen as MOD in December, what a great Christmas Gift.
I am embarking on a new journey of sorts and venturing out on my own and expanding my business, and with the same drive and determination I had in getting healthy and losing weight, I know I will be a success in building my business and becoming a independent woman. Wish me Luck!!!!

I have been a very busy woman these past 18 months. between the competition and getting divorced and selling my house, finding a new home...Whew it's been a long journey to say the least. but i'm happy to say that i have not fallen off the wagon, I still went to the gym when I got a free hour and I still ate right and I havent gained and ounce. I know youre all probably saying, "I hate you" but it is the determination of not letting the ups and downs and the road blocks of life get you down. As I have always said Life is a journey and your are the Driver, Navagator, Pilot, Co-Pilot and the GPS system to get you where you need to go.
Love to hear from all my Spark friends on how they have been doing.
Keep up the good work and eat good food and have fun the journey isn't over.

From where I was to where I am is still unbelievable, I have achieved so much in my life and I am so proud of myself. Training for this show was a life altering experience. Learning how my body utilizes the food that I eat to change my body has been amazing. The diet alone has changed the way I eat, what I think when I put food in my mouth and what the results will be afterward. I have made so many new friends along the way and God has blessed me with so many great friends and acquaintances and so many people have touched my life and I am so very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of their lives and to be able to help them along the way. I have evolved into a person that I truly like and I love the feeling of being an inspiration to all of you.
Thank you for all you good thoughts and prayers and encouragement.
You all Rock!!!
