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 […]

Week 1 Results: 9/11/17

I’m super excited about this! I’m loving doing Weight Watchers! It’s so easy & so convenient for me. Several people have asked if I’m going to meetings, the answer is no. My work schedule is a bit challenging plus all of the activities my daughters have after school make it too hard. I have opted […]

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 […]

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 […]

That Time I Made A Commitment… 

I recently had someone ask me what my plan was to “lose” weight and get healthy. They also asked me what methods I had tried in the past & what my goals were… I’ve also had people ask when I’m gonna actually start… Initially, I was like “whoa! are you an intervention agent sent here […]

The Journey… Day Zero.

“It’s time for a change, time to face the mirror, and time to dance with my inner most demons. Tomorrow my life will change. My journey will begin. My inner self will step out of the depths and allow the light to expose me one layer at a time.” -BadCupcakeGirl
