Get To Know Me…

I want to share my journey with you! I also want to prove that when you’re ready, you can move mountains! This journey isn’t about getting “skinny”, it’s about finding the best version of myself and being happy. The scale doesn’t define me like it used to. The scale is only a component to my […]

This Thanksgiving… What Are You Thankful For?

Every year my family sits around the most beautiful table with the most beautiful music in the background. A table set by my incredible mother the music chosen by my wonderful dad. They take care of every single little detail in order to ensure it’s perfection. They do this because it’s a day that means […]

I’m In A Bad Funk. I Fell Short!

My journey to get healthy and find the best version of myself started 12 weeks ago! (Well 11 week’s & 6 days to be exact.) I started this journey on a prayer! (And the fact that I was gonna die if I didn’t get it together!!) I knew I couldn’t do it alone. I started […]

If I Could Go Back In Time… I Wouldn’t Change A Thing! 

As I get ready to begin week 11 of my weight loss journey, I think about all the things that have lead me to this moment. If I am completely honest, I have cried & laughed & hated myself to sleep so many times. I’ve missed events, turned down dates (with my hubby obviously!), avoided […]

Some Things In Life Should Always Be Sacred…

Let me begin by saying that first and foremost this post is one ☝️ of my all time favorites!!! Mostly because it intertwines two of my favorite things in life…  Tomorrow marks 8 week’s since I started my Weight Watchers journey. Eight week’s since I called a huge time out in the game I like […]

When You Run From Something For So Long, You Eventually Realize You Can’t Hide… 4 Week’s Down! 

Where shall I begin?… ?? I know! Let’s travel back in time… (only for a moment) 4 week’s ago I took a leap of faith and began my weight loss journey ehmmm for the 5th time… (Don’t judge me… I’m middle aged & hormonal!) I was slowly becoming reluctant to share my stories with all of […]

My Mother… 

I was born in Miami, Florida to Cuban/American parents in the great year of 1981. I am the “middle child”. I grew up (from the time I can remember) a very “comfortable” life surrounded by family. Enriched everyday by my siblings, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and so many more! Today, I thought it would be good […]

I’m So Much More Than A Cupcake Addict… I’m Superwoman! (Or Not?) 

“It’s just a fast food line, what’s wrong with you? Seriously relax! No, like for real… are you about to lose your shit? Breathe, breathe, breathe… What did they say? Shhh! Be quiet… Oh God! I can’t breathe, I’m having a heart attack! Am I having a heart attack? Oh my God my kids are […]

Controversy Loves The Spotlight…

I was recently introduced to a show on TLC that my daughter (the tween) thought would be fun to watch together. She has found shows such as “Little People, Big World” and “My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding” (have you seen this show?? ?? OMG it’s so ridiculous but I’m addicted! I LOVE IT!) to be very […]

Stepping Out Of The “Closet”, Where I Ate!

I’m on my way home (alone) from work or anywhere, I stop at the Golden Arches for a quick bite. “Yes, I’ll have a plain cheeseburger, medium fry, an apple pie, and an orange hi-C…” I listen for my total and proceed to the next window. After paying, I smile politely ☺️… the nice lady on the […]
