It's been about a month since I last blogged. I've just been so busy with the workouts and every day things that I lost track of time. I've still tracked everything though. I'll probably weigh myself this week. I do it about once a month. I know I've lost though because the inches are less, and my clothes fit great. It really feels great when you have a good workout, doesn't it? I've recently added kettle ball training to my workouts and I lov...

I appreciate it with all my heart. Tomorrow, the 29th. is the day that I am having the Nuclear Stress Test and Echocardiogram done on my heart. If you have time, sent a little prayer my way. The reason I am having these tests is because I was diagnosed with Left Branch Bundle Block about four years ago, and I've been having more and more chest pain.

Sun, 28 Oct 2012 22:48:39 EST THE HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY EVER!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5103104 My sweet husband made sure I had the happiest birthday ever today. After the week I had last week, it was a blessed relieve. He took the day off of work and took me out to breakfast, after giving me a bouquet of roses. He then took me shopping and bought me so many gifts that I was overwhelmed. After that we went out to a wonderful luxirous dinner. All in all, it was the best birthday I've had since last year. LOL!!! <BR> <BR> I hoping all my spark friends also had a wonderful day. Ma...

We have had a sudden death in the family and we were just so shocked. My cousin, who is my age, died suddenly of a massive heart attack. She was in the pool playing with her grandchildren when she had the heart attack. It's just been so sad because she was such a nice and wonderful person. I know that she is now with God!!!! <BR> <BR> On the other hand, I had my appointment with my cardiologist on Wednesday. I was diagnosed with Left Branch Bundle Bloc...

We have another opportunity to be successful; another opportunity to began anew. Never, ever deny yourself that wonderful opportunity to be triumphant. It is the best feeling in the world!!!! I know that many of you, including myself, have medical problems; but that doesn't mean that we have to lie down and give up. We can SHINE, we can TRIUMPH, and we can shout out to the world that WE MATTER!!!! My good friends, may this new ...

I will miss her greatly and I know that many others here on Spark People will miss her as well. I pray that our good Lord brings peace to her husband and her children. I know that Theresa's memory will live on forever. I know I will remember her and I will pray for her. May her journey to heaven bring her family peace and may they be reassured that Theresa now has her angel wings. God Bless ...

They became heroes that day and because of them , I see everything in a different light. I learned to appreciate life itself and I learned that we should never allow a day to go by without telling our loved ones that we love them. God bless all of you and have a good day with your families!!!! <BR> <BR> <em>214</em> <em>232</em> <em>195</em> <em>232</em> <em>214</em>...

That is a good adage to live by. If we keep on trying on our fitness trip, we will never fail. I wish all of you a successful fitness journey. Never stop trying!!!!

I am doing great because I will get to take my four year old Godchild to school on Monday. It will be his very first day of school. He is really excited, but not as excited as I am; and also, not as sad as I am. He grew up too fast!!!! I feel truly blessed because he brings such joy into my life. I'm glad he's back home with his dad. His mother certainly doesn't care to be there on his first day of school. She left today because ... Sun, 26 Aug 2012 00:14:41 EST THE DAY MY LIFE BEGAN!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5022600 Twenty-five years ago, on August 20, 1987; after twelve years of marriage, my life began. On that beautiful Thursday morning, my gorgeous daughter, Juliette Nicole was born. Never in my life had I feel such joy, such an over-whelming sense of euphoria. On that day, I truly felt that I had finally become an adult; I truly felt like a grown up. From that moment on, my life has been one positive milestone after another. Juliette has brought nothing but joy into my life. She was the motivat... Sun, 19 Aug 2012 23:50:27 EST HOPE BEGINS IN THE DARK!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5021080 Many times, late at night we began to think of all the things that are going wrong in our lives; especially if we are ill. It is very important that we do not give up hope because no matter how long the night is, dawn will eventually come. Things always look better in the light of day. I know that I am guilty of this. Sometimes it is hard to get to sleep because we are thinking too much! Usually what I do is PRAY!!! That always gets me through and I know that God will never desert me....

I am determined not to allow this disease to define who I am. I am stronger than this disease and I WILL overcome it. I have made up my mind that I will go ahead and have the surgery in October and I will get better. All I ask is that you all continue to pray for me daily and ask the good Lord to quide the surgeon's hands! God is ALL POWERFUL AND MAY HIS WILL BE DONE!!! Thank you, ...

I have not been feeling very well lately. My Meniere's Disease has been acting up and I had to go see my doctor in San Antonio, Texas. He thinks I may need surgery again and I really don't want to have it; but I quess if I want to get better, I need to think about having it done.

I have done my good deed for the day. I did three loads of laundry for this family who has very little. It may not sound like much, but they were so grateful. It just brought a smile to my face. That's the way I brought my daughter up. I told her to try and do a good deed for someone everyday of her life and that is exactly what she does. I am so proud of her. Both her and her husband help their fellow man. That's why our good Lord put us ...

It's been a while since my last blog. I've just been so busy with life and my workouts that I haven't had time to blog, but I'm back. I've had a great couple of weeks. My workouts have been very beneficial and I can definitely see a lot of muscle now, especially in my arms and abs. Thank the Lord that what I'm doing is working. I continue to walk between 7 to 10 miles a day and I do weight training daily; on different muscles of course. I st... Tue, 17 Jul 2012 00:28:53 EST HOLD ON AND DON'T GIVE UP!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4924150 Many times we find ourselves getting tired of the workouts, the diets, or just the everyday things in our lives; and we want to give up. Don't quit; try to hold on for one more day. Remember: One day at a time!!!! It's hard, but if we want to be successful, we need to continue with whatever our quest was. We will feel better about ourselves if we hold on. The end result will show us that it was all worth it. This beautiful quote reminds me to hold on: "Whenever you feel like giving... Wed, 13 Jun 2012 00:12:29 EST LOOK BEHIND YOU!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4914073 It always amazes me how many people walk past someone who is in trouble. I cannot bring myself to do this, especially when children are involved. I truly believe that if we all did our part to help each other, this would be a much better world. If we all learn to help one another, hopefully, one day, when we need help, there will be someone behind us willing to help us unselfishly.

I have really been blessed to have her so long and in pretty good health. I don't know what I will do the day that God remembers her, but I won't dwell on that now. She had a really good day. We had a fish fry for her and she really enjoyed herself. May God bless her and allow her many, many more years with us. Oh, by the way; my Chihuahua, Chiquita, turned 8 years old today .
