What’s this all about??

I created this blog because as a single parent and mother I know life can be tough it can be hard it can knock you down then kick you while you’re trying to get back up. So many single moms end up just wading through life without really experiencing hope, happiness, success or really just things they wish they could do. They think because they are a mom or a working single mom that they can’t experience life or can’t want certain things or to see certain places. I was that way too once! I figured I’m a single mother why bother I’ll just work two jobs and be lucky to retire before I die. Now I am single mother , a soon-to-be divorcee and I can see my life clearer now that what I ever have!! Tune in next week where I begin to really pull back the layers of ME!!

How I changed me…

It wasn’t always easy…

Hell it stop isn’t…

Now though, I’ve learned to manage what’s tough and make it into a challenge to overcome instead of one to runaway from.

Starting out though I was intimidated. I was intimidated by my size, by how much weight I had to lose, and by how many times I’d tried and failed. To a point where I nearly let it overcome me and just settle for who I had become.

Finally, enough was enough and I decided to be my own motivator.

You’ve gotta try this!!

So the other day it was beyond freezing outside (sorta like it is now!) I had just gotten home from a hellish weight training workout and needed some good food.

I love shakes but I was still frozen to the bone just from walking 20 ft from my car to my house! I’veare tons of yummy breakfasts with cream of wheat, oatmeal, eggs etc but didn’t want the same ol thing…

So I thought up something new, tried it and Lovvveedd it!! So now I’m sharing with you!! Enjoy!!

Merry Christmas!!

It was a chore trying to get this Christmas together with figuring out what to get who. Then add to it I waited too long to get a tree and thought I’d have to spend an arm and a leg on one but finally found this one. I ended up spending extra time with my mom and Wendy to watch a movie (twice) and wrap gifts. We had fun though and working together we made today a special day for everyone.

Merry Christmas!!!
