Summer Body Motivation

Well it’s that time of the year again, when you can sense that summer is just around the corner and all anyone can think of is getting your “Summer Body” ready.

Of course, me being one of those people, I am starting an 8-week challenge by Jillian Perih. I started a few days after hers, but I am still going to be following it as best as I can. This will be a test of my will power.

Today is day one, and I must say, I was very pleased with myself. I made a breakfast smoothie along with prepping and making my lunch. I just hope I can keep this momentum for the next 8 weeks.

Not only will I need the momentum for food, but also for making time for my workouts. which means getting up early and hitting the gym before work – since sadly, my gym is closed by the time I get out of work.

Stay tuned for more on this crazy journey of mine.

Good-Bye My Sweet Prince

All my life, I have been fortunate enough to not have much experience with death. Death was always something I knew was a part of life- and I’ve even seen friends and family experience death within their families, but I myself never experience feeling that loss of someone special and close to me.

Today, that has changed.

My dearest Grady- you brought such joy and love into my life. You drove me crazy on multiple occasions and also taught me a lot. I miss you every day.  I hope you are enjoying yourself in a pool full of catnip and tamales.

New Things

Lately, I have found myself feeling very blah. lol I have found myself on the verge of going down a path that I’m very excited for. So many new things happening in 2017 that I can’t seem to enjoy the journey that awaits me.

All I want right now is to be at the end of this path & enjoy all the positive things that I will come with my journey. Too bad I can’t just jump to the end.

A Little Test of Will Power

Little secret about myself… I have no will power what so ever when it comes to food. I LOVE food. I love trying all types of food. And the way to ever get me super happy or the way to my heart is through food. So with that said, I have decided to do a little test of my will power.

I had 5 people name a food for me to give up for two weeks.

Wish me luck!

2017 Here I Come

As we approach the end of another year, I cannot help but be extremely excited and hopeful. I believe that years have certain energies. Now, whether we create those energies or whether they are just in the air is up to you. For me, 2016 has been one rough year and I cannot wait for it to be over. So for now, I am going to enjoy the Holiday season (my favorite).

I have so many hopes and possibilities for me in 2017 and I am so excited for the new year to begin.
