Happy happy

And…what a year it’s been! So much change, growth, and emotion. I’m 35 and I still feel like I’m in my twenties. Excited for each new day and ready for any opportunity that presents itself.  The best is yet to come! There’s always clarity after a pause – from anything.  What a weekend, I over…

No Doubt

Thanksgiving has come and gone and now we are in that downward spiral of urgency. It’s too much for me. 2016 has been the year of experiences, I would much rather experience something then have more “stuff” but that’s me. I know I’ve said this before, the best gift you can give to anyone is…

Ahhhhmazing

I am open for something amazing. I started thinking about when I started blogging, I love it all.  If I didn’t go through all that has happened in the past year I wouldn’t be where I am today. I can’t wait until May, (when I started my blog) and to see where I am and…

Lowering my expectations

Weighing in: Only down .8 this week. I had a great week, and psyched myself up for too much.   Moving forward without distraction. It is what it is, and I’ve been on a good streak. So, I’ll take that .8 and add it to my 7 and that’s 7.8 in five weeks. If I…

I hate you. I love you.

Back to the gym today! I didn’t have a lot of time so I needed to keep it short but work hard so it was worth it. Something is far better than nothing. As much as I love working out, about halfway through I’m hating it. Talking myself into finishing it because I’ll kick myself…

Good things are going to happen 

A Sunday well spent brings a week of content. A new week. A fresh start. A clean slate. Who cares about yesterday? I kind of love Mondays. Everyone is back to school/work and I’m left to hit the ground running. Maybe it’s a little selfish, but sometimes I just need to be alone to get…

Do it now, don’t wait. 

You might not have tomorrow. It’s all about the experience! I am creating my future right now – regardless of circumstance. I can’t afford to fly to all the places I want to see but I am certainly capable of exploring everything I ever wanted to that’s right in front of me. I’ve never been…

Month 1 down 

Weigh in: It’s been a month since I’ve kicked myself into high gear, and I’m happy to report I’m down seven pounds!  Mom life: The pic above was from yesterday. Most of that was accomplished at my own house during the day. I was cleaning and organizing like a mad woman!  I accomplished even more…

My voice

I really dislike talking politics with the people I care about. I’m not a big fan of creating conflict, and I’m pretty passionate about my own beliefs, it can get ugly. :/  Mostly, I’m not a fan of having someone else’s opinion and/or beliefs forced on me. That goes for everything. I am entitled to…

Meeting Expectations

I always crave excitement.   I live in a constant state of distraction, having no set schedule.  I am not typically a creature of habit and enjoy doing something different all the time. That being said, I play “let’s make a deal” with myself at least 10 times a day, talking myself into completing my…
