Well Sparkers, I know I have been MIA for a bit, but I haven't neglected my body. I have been eating healthy, I've been working out as much as I can. But there was a little wrench thrown in my program.

June 3rd my 87 y/o mother fell and broke her hip/femur. She was hospitalized and had surgery to repair it. After surgery she went in to a rehab and progressed very well. She did so well she was released after 20 days. well 2 days before she was released mom didn't feel well, she ended up with a STAPH infection that landed her back in the hospital. While in the hospital she needed a second surgery to remove the infection and the infected skin. She was on high doses of antibiotics for another week.

Well it is July 8th and she has been released to come home. She is doing fabulous you would never know she broke her hip.

Now I can get back into my normal routine Thank goodness all is well

A little awkward at first!

Friday, November 29, 2013

For the past few weeks I have been extremely busy with work, school, getting in my work outs and just regular family/house stuff. I noticed I've been eating very fast lately, Not something I normally do. I was reading an article, (can't remember where or by who)

The doctor recommend to eat with the opposite hand he said it makes it feel awkward slows you down lets you enjoy your meal and helps you to not over eat.

Gave it a try and yes it slowed me down and it did feel little awkward and I noticed that I didn't finish all my meals

Give it a try you have nothing to lose ;) emoticon

    That's never worked for me! My fast eating has a lot to do with my dad. Yes I can legitimately blame him. I still can remember the family being out to eat and him finishing first and demanding everyone hurry up because he was ready to go!

I'm in it to win it!

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

Fighting for a better me, fighting for a positive outlook on life so that I can conquer the world. I am here to win, failure is not an option. I know that I can do this.

I know the journey is not going to be easy but anything worth having is worth fighting for. When I put in the work and that is what it takes I can see the results.

Dedication. I am! I am dedicated. I am here to win. I will win this Fight!

Fighting the fat, sweating it out making it cry. Pickin the right foods and keeping a positive outlook. I am going to win!!!

    You can incorporate these things in your diet if you make sure you keep within your calorie range. Glad you are not beating yourself up and just moving on!!

I'm a believer !

Monday, January 14, 2013


Life is what you make it At least that's what they say Well, I think I'm gonna make it Fulfill my dreams one day
I feel this fire growingDeep inside of me I'm so inspired knowing That it's my destiny
I breathe like a champion I dream
I'm a championI see I'm a championIt's meant to be
My will's getting stronger I can't wait any longerI'm singing a song That's inside of me
'Cause I'm a believerI know that I can make it No matter what they say
So I'm a believer The future is now It starts today
I keep my head up Believer
Everyday I'm waiting Trying to find the patience So close, I can taste it But sometimes it's so hard
But I'm gonna keep on pushing And I'm gonna keep on fighting And I'm gonna keep on trying Because I come too far
I breathe like a championI dream I'm a championI see I'm a champion It's meant to be
My will's getting stronger I can't wait any longerI'm singing a song That's inside of me
'Cause I'm a believerI know that I can make it No matter what they say
I'm a believer The future is now It starts today
The future is now it starts today
