Hey y'all. These past couple of weeks have been a doozie. At one point, I wasn't even sure I should still keep blogging. I had a moment where I felt like "This is it. Where you are right now is all that you will ever be. You are stuck with... Read more
Being frustrated, yet optimistic at the same time

Ah, another Monday. Another week gone by. 7 whole days where I feel like I have failed myself, my own personal journey, at least 1 time each of those days. I could blame it on my own personal illness flare-ups. And in all honesty, that is ... Read more

This week was rough. Emotionally rough. I was doing well until Thursday. And then I had a chat that just threw me into instant emotional overload. Granted I don't think this was done on purpose, however the effect was still the same. I ove... Read more

I started off last week strong, feeling the wonderful effects that a little bit of weight loss and the rushes from exercising. Then I fell (not physically) when the weekend came. I ate a bad piece of fish, which threw my weekend plans out the wi... Read more

Monday, August 13, 2018      2 comments

Well, here I am at week 2, doing ok. I am probably doing better than that, but I feel a bit put down about this past weekend. I ate 3/4 of a bag of Doritos, along with a large size Ghiradelli chocolate and caramel bar. Why?, no clue. I also didn... Read more
