It has been now almost four months since I have had my surgery to remove my thyroid due to cancer. During this time. I have had to heal Take back smalls changes on my life. One of which was what I could and could not do with my neck.I never knew how much you need your neck for everything until I was not able to use it. I still even now have to be careful over what workouts I am doing. If and when I start to feel my neck cramp up on me, I know it is time to stop. I am learning that small changes are just as important as big ones. We have made a change to cook breakfast in the mornings no matter what. I have noticed a change in my energy, but also in the scale. Small things … [Read more...]

This week I have been going through a lot of old photos, Logan has been loving seeing them all, I of course have not because they remind me of either a happier time, or a time when i was upset and fat. But some of the pictures I did find made me think about my life and the choices I am making now so my sons never have to worry about having those types of choices. So I thought it would be fun for you all to see some of the pictures I found of your myself. Most of these pictures are from high school and college. Oh dear I am dating myself .

Outlets

Outlets we see them everyday, we use them everyday, but do we really use them? I have been thinking a lot about outlets and what they means. I have many different outlets in my life, from my husband, my kids, my weight, even mamavation, each one of these outlets help me in different ways. Now what is an outlet? An outlet is a place we plug into to get a spark right? Well that is what I have been doing lately with my life finding those outlets for sparks. I have been missing the sparks of life. My weight have been up and down. I have been so busy thinking that I needed to lose this weight that I have forgot to plug myself into a grounded place and have a plan. Until about two months ago, now I can say I have lost now 10 lbs pound in two months! I am beyond happy to report this! I still have … [Read more...]
