I know that most people's posts at this time of year focus on looking forward to the year ahead and all the goals they have for themselves. But for me, it is hard to look forward to what I am doing until I look back and see what has brought me ... Read more
2 Years Ago...
The month of February has become my least favorite month of the year. Two years ago, my husband and I were blessed with a beautiful baby girl. She was so small, so fragile and yet so strong. We weren't ready for her to make her appearance in ... Read more
The last time on sparkpeople, I got 2 very important pieces advice for staying motivated. The 1st was take your measurements because they are what is most important, not the scale. And take pictures because it is helpful to see how far you hav... Read more
Making the change...
It took me so long to get started again on the path to healthy eating. My husband and I had made the change back in 2009 and loved every minute of it, then as life got in the way, we also lost our way. Then after my daughter was born, I though... Read more
To my Mom and Dad...

First week A Success!
Well it has been 7 days since I wrote my last blog and it has been a busy one. But for once it hasn't been a busy I couldn't handle! I have been active, getting things done in my house, and overall just feeling good. My hubby and I have exerc... Read more
One Step Forward...
A new year has started but I wouldn't stay that a new journey is beginning. I am preferring to think that I stalled, that I let life get in the way (and get in the way it did) but I didn't stay focused long enough to keep it going. So I stalle... Read more
One Step Forward...
My brother had this saying posted on his facebook not too long ago, "One step forward, two steps back." And my response to him was "Well at least you are moving somewhere, even if it is backwards." But sitting here right now I think I understa... Read more
They Call it Falling off the Wagon...
The often call what I did falling off the wagon. I did so good and then just started losing my footing a little bit at a time. Then I quit trying, I quit being conscious of what I was doing, and this was all before I even got pregnant and star... Read more

Life Ain't Always Beautiful...
With all of the changes that I have been through this year, it is safe to say I have been riding a roller coaster. Emotionally, mentally, and even physically. And through all of that I have been strong. I wasn't strong because I had to be, bu... Read more
Getting back on the Wagon!!
Hello all my spark friends!
It has been a long time since I have been on here. I have been avoiding it like the plague because I hadn't been doing ANYTHING that could even be considered healthy and I wanted everyone to think I was sti... Read more
Starting again... well not really but it feels like it!!
So last week was a complete bust for me. I honestly didn't even make an effort to make great choices, although I did try to watch my portion sizes. I did not make a big effort to exercise. AND I FELT HORRIBLE!! Not just horrible because I wa... Read more
The devil in my living room!
Now reading that title you could think of many different things. It could be the TV that I want to watch. It could be the snacks beside the couch or the couch itself. But what I am talking about is my scale. It is sitting in my living room r... Read more
Still sad... but trying to work through it!
This week has been a rough one for me. I have been fighting a blanket of depression for most of the week. It all started on Sunday because we were at my parents house and our little girl is at a little place called Tranquility Gardens. We wen... Read more
