Want to lose weight naturally?

get a puppy 🐶

Sunny, a golden retriever, age 11 weeks has been keeping me very busy!

lost 6 pounds in one week 🤗

I haven’t used my yard so much in the past 5 years until now!
Side note: they say puppies sleep about 16 hours a day… ummm… not mine


Sunny keeps me active and busy!
I’m so happy I got him.
The boyfriend was against it because he didn’t want his routine to be upset and he was worried about his fish wires  BUT I told him it’s not all about him!!

I’m getting him wether you like it or not.
To myself, I said I have my own home and I’m an adult! Im not having a man tell me I can’t get a dog because he’s self centered!!
make it a great day!

Ahh 💪✔️

Work out done. Felt good as it’s been a while.
My smoking cessation class is this afternoon. I have to come clean with the group as I haven’t stuck to my plan but I never give up!!

On a more positive note, I got into the masters program for health informatics.
Now I just need to pass this last course I’m in for my bachelors. I hate challenge based classes! You basically teach yourself. 🧐

make it a good day. I always try.

Switched yesterday

ok.. so I finally gave in to the hype. I bought a Juul yesterday at 5:30 pm. NO MORE CIgs.

I did my research and it is better than smoking cigarettes as it’s all the chemicals “in cigarette smoke” that’s most harmful. Although, research did say there are unknowns on long term.

Vaping isn’t my lifestyle it’s a stepping stone to quitting smoking then eventually no devices or nicotine at all.

Other things haven’t worked for the long term so why not!

Have a blessed day!
Think it. Do it. Achieve it.

So much to achieve

wow this morning I sit on my couch having my coffee and watching my frog thinking … we (I’m) always looking to “better” myself. Become the person I want to be.  Be the person I want to be. That’s what I tell my grown kids. Be the person you want to be. Every day work at it. A little bit of work every day pays off, that’s for sure!!
I’ve been “working” on myself for years. I believe we all have room for growth and life teaches us lessons so we can grow from them.

Right now I’m working on being more analytical and less emotional.  Thinking before I speak. Wow these two things are so hard for me.

Anyway, I’m also working on other things like taking care of myself.
Got my hair colored ,highlights and cut yesterday! I feel great! Saturday getting eyelash lift and tint.  😍

Big new, today is day  1  to quitting those nasty  cigarettes.

I have a wellness coach I speak with once per week to guide me in this process of quitting for good!

And a deep breathe in. Thinking .. I’m in my last class before I graduate with my bachelors. Stick it out!! It’s almost done.

Positive thinking and always moving forward. Changing things up to get through the bumps.

Feeling good in this dreary rainy day! Nice I quit smoking in a day like this! Ha! Don’t have to go out in this crappy weather. Already a plus!!

I’m going through a process right now. It feels bigger than my normal “work at myself to be a better person”

I feel like I’m going through a metamorphosis.
Or could be a mid life crisis, as they say lol   😝 I’m at that age.
What ever it is , I’m embracing it!

Make it a great day!

Working on thinking before speaking

thinking before reacting. Let’s face it women are emotion creatures and yes their are men To0 of course! but this isn’t about them 😉

im a middle aged woman still achieving in life. Achieving academically  and emotionally. I’ve been trying real hard to think before I speak! Think more   This  shit  is  hard ! I’ve been practicing at work and now have to bring it to my personal life. That’s even harder for me.

On another note I’ve been working out almost every day. Skipping today and my plans are to workout out tomorrow, do my homework and get out of the house for a little bit. Sunday’s my boyfriend works and I usually revert back to my old habits for that day which leads to a depressive day.
I give good advice and don’t take my own but that’s changing. It’s easy to revert back to old habits but you have to fight it, be strong and make yourself do the things that you know will help you in the long run!
Cheers to a new day of a new you   the you you want to be!!

You can change your life too!

i was on a mission a few months back to accomplish a new life, a life I want and deserve and happy to report I achieved what I wanted and set my mind too. What did I do?

i worked on myself. I worked out every day. I worked on me. I worked for love and opened myself to let it in. It came in!

i thought I could never live with anyone, as I lived by myself for years!! But, when the right one comes along it’s not as hard as you think.
As I mentioned in another post I rekindled with my ex whom i was with over 10 years ago.
He’s changed my life completely around!! And i actually like it. No more homebody, being by myself. I’m out enjoying my life and my home. I will post pics later today as i have the day off. I actually have a hobby and a kitchen table lol its where my gym was. Now i have my gym all in one place.
Anyway, those who have read my previous posts know I’m not one to talk about my feelings or get in deep with my personal life, so sorry if I’m not giving out all the details. I’m not a writer 😝

I’m tired of only 20mins. Have some work to do to get back to where I was a few months ago but I know it won’t take long!
