Do you think someone knows about my love for spicy things?


What this is all about

Last year I was working on losing weight and I was able to get that underway so now I am working on getting my style back. This is a blog where I will post pictures of shopping trips…my daily outfits and all that jazz. That way my other blogs can stay like they are and not be crammed with this stuff 🙂

I’m old

First, I want to say that my grandson Tyler is 1 today!!! Yay! (he is from my stepson and his wife) I’m old but not that old…lol.

I feel old though. I feel like i’m falling apart. I am getting ready for hubby to take me to get this HIDA scan done. They told me it will take about 1 hour and all I do is just lay down and wait….I hate waiting. I can’t wait for all this mess to be over with.

On top of everything that is going on I also have to figure out why my jeep is acting funny. This is not a good thing because everytime something is wrong with the jeep I hear hubby say “I have hated that jeep since they day you got it”

Wish me luck ya’ll. I will have pictures to post tonight when I get home from my grandsons “mini-party”


I’m sorry that I have been away for so long. I have some things to catch people up on. I have had a lot of things going on and have been super busy and also in massive pain…yes, pain!

First, I have been busy trying to keep my job… far that has been good. I also have been working towards getting my CFT certificate from ISSA. I am working on my final now (wish me luck). My daughter is here for the holidays and I feel bad because I have been going to Dr. appointments and just trying to feel better since December 11th. It looks like I will have to have surgery to have my gallbladder removed. If you have ever had to have this done give me some feedback…..I’m clueless about this whole thing….I guess I will get answers from my doctor on Thursday but any info I can get before than would be great.

I hope everyone else is having a better December than I am……..


I have been thinking about this past year a lot and I wanted to know what pushed you into making a change in your eating and workout habits? I gained weight over the last few years and I have lost a few pounds but gained more than I lost. I know that most people say they just got tired of being sick and tired. I guess I can say that also. There were many things that got me started I think but what keeps you going?

How do you make fitness and nutrition fit into your life? Do you have a family? Do they eat and workout like you do? Are you alone when it comes to eating with the family? I am.

It has been said that if others see the changes in you that they will follow. I can say that is true to an extent. My husband will not eat what I do….he won’t even try to eat what I eat. Trust me, I have tried! However, I can tell you that he has not gained a pound this year. He has cut down on candy and soda intake and because he knows how hard I have been working this year he does not bring in as much junk into the house. He also will keep me in line when he thinks that I am starting to slip. I have shared my goals with him and I know that he at first he may have thought I was crazy but he is behind me all the way.

Some of the things that keep me going on with what I have started is knowing that I have told many people about my goals and I don’t want to look like a fool if I don’t follow through with it.

I want to compete in a figure competition next year. I am working on getting ISSA certified to become a personal trainer. I want to leave my current job next year to work on something else that I love.

I guess we can say that I decided to really make changes when I got sick and tired of being tired. What keeps me motivated is my goals, sharing those goals and knowing that I make my family proud. One other things that keeps me motivated is when someone mentions how great I am looking or what a good job I have done with my weight. It makes those days filled with chicken, tuna, fish, eggs, broccoli, protein powder and oatmeal all worth my efforts.

So, what got you started and what keeps you going? What are your goals? Feel free to answer here or make a post out of it. If you post on your blog let me know so I can read it. I look forward to hearing from you.
