What am I doing???

It’s been April for 18 days as of today. Where has the time gone? Where have I been? Working, mothering, cleaning, washing, cooking, eating, shopping, driving, mindlessly watching tv, living life, and still not doing what makes me tick. I absolutely love interacting with the children on a daily basis BUT am I walking in my purpose? There’s one thing that came naturally to me as soon as I was able to read and write. I’ve always enjoyed expressing myself through words on paper. Is writing my gift? Is this the thing I’m supposed to be doing career wise? Hmm…it’s … Continue reading What am I doing???

It’s going…

Life’s being going…lately. Since, I’ve lost my mom, significant other and I are on the outs; I’ve had a lot of free time to think about life. The one thing that I’ve been running away from is getting healthy. This is my top goal as of NOW. I have to let go of the excuses and all of the bad habits I’ve accrued over the years. Late night snacking isn’t doing me any good. I’ve got to get this horrific habit under control. I’ll do good all day. Then night hits and the hunger monster takes over my mind and … Continue reading It’s going…

Just feeling like blah…

Well, this week has been a complete bust. I haven’t worked out one day this week. I did start off eating salads, but by Wednesday I was off track. My entire life is off track to be perfectly honest. My mom passed away January 21st of this year after being hospitalized for almost 3 months. She lived with me for 16 years. She moved into a nursing home September 6, 2018. I received a phone call that she was being transported to the hospital on October 25, 2018. After arriving at the hospital, I found out she had pneumonia and … Continue reading Just feeling like blah…

Week 2…

Good news! I’m off to a great start. I exercised 5 days out of 7 last week. I have quite a way to go, but I’m working on making exercise a habit once again. My eating habits are still horrible, but I’m working on it also. My plan to tackle this obstacle is meal prepping. I’m planning on surviving off of salads and smoothies this week. I’m trying to immerse myself in healthy eating this upcoming week. My daughter’s karate schedule changed by 30 minutes on Mondays and Wednesdays. I need to try to leave work by 3:45 so I … Continue reading Week 2…

Going nowhere fast…

So this weight loss journey has still not taken off…yet. I have started cooking and eating at home more, but the exercise hasn’t fallen into place as easily expected. It seems like there’s a million and one things to get done in a day, and simply not enough time. But who am I kidding this is just a lame excuse. If I have time to spend minutes to an hour browsing on the internet or looking on my facebook timeline then I have time to workout at least 30 minutes a day. I’ve lost the motivation somewhere and can’t seem … Continue reading Going nowhere fast…

New Beginnings

I’ve decided to start this blog because I used to love writing. Somewhere along the way I traded that love for a job, school, work, taking care of everything and everyone except me. So now I’m returning to the basics. I’m in the midst of trying to redefine myself. I’m so much more than a first year school counselor, daughter, mother, girlfriend, friend, etc. Those are simply roles I fulfill on a daily basis. What do I enjoy doing? Now that I’ve graduated from grad school, what’s next? What lies ahead? I’ve been in a relationship for 10 years. What’s … Continue reading New Beginnings
