Life. Whether you are enjoying it or hating it, it goes on; with or without you, so chin up!

I’ve been practicing keeping focused in September. It’s working, but it’s hard. They are so many things that I am working towards and I know that with God all things are possible!

Lately my days consist of watching Ru Paul’s Drag Race reruns and trying to get to 1000 squats this month (with St. Jude). I haven’t tallied them up yet I’m just trying to do at least 30 a day. Some days I missed and one day I only did 20 but hey, I’m still trying!

No matter how hard things get, I always remember how blessed I am. God has never failed me, and He never will!

Food Is the Devil, (but not really)

What are your favorite types of foods?

OMG. Food. One of my favorite things in the world. I wish I didn’t love food so much, then maybe I could lose some of this stomach fat! Gonna be honest: I love all food.

I love ordering Chinese Egg Foo Young.

I love eating Ben & Jerry’s Ice cream.

I love ordering subs from Jersey Mikes or Jimmie Johns.

I love eating burgers from Griffs.

I could go on and on, but I won’t. Just know: I love food way too much!

The Happiness is Real

This picture represents my happiness. This is the happiest I have been in my whole life and I am so thankful to God for providing me with a husband who loves me and a wonderful, handsome son who is doing well in life!

I had a good talk with him the other day about my need to refocus and get some things back on track. Sometimes, when you give a voice to things, they become more real. I thank God for always having my back no matter how many times I lose focus!

I’ve set things in motion as far as my health and I want to stick with it. I’m challenging myself to do certain things for the month of September. I am keeping a daily record to be accountable. I’ve found that writing lists and keeping notes is something that helps me stay with things.

I’ve got to keep pushing. God has blessed me too much for me to give up now!

We Have Come a Long Way: Blessed

Good morning, friends. I’m up taking care of business this morning, at the car dealer. Lexus never disappoints. 😊 Always outstanding service.

I was talking to two friends of mine on two separate occasions about how absolutely outrageous prices are right now. We were discussing food and housing prices.

One of my friends lives in my hometown of Baltimore, Maryland. Prices there are even crazier than they are here in Texas. Sometimes I get down when my money is short, but God has blessed my family and He will continue to.

If I look at our life 5 years ago, we are in such a better place. We hope to move into our own home by 2025. I’m so blessed to have a 25-year-old son who is on his own and doing well.

Our beginning was hard. My ex-husband left me and my son when he was only 3 years old. We endured being homeless, staying in hotels and so many other things. BUT GOD!

Now, I have a wonderful life, with a wonderful man who loves me and no matter how hard things get from time to time, I. AM. BLESSED.
