Today was one of those days. If you have ever watch Sex and The city (My Favorite Show) there was an episode where Carrie realize that she was the only one that did not save any money for her future and etc. I feel that moment her character felt. I feel like that a lot lately. I mean I have a son and there is always something and being single it is.........you know it is hard. I know a lot of people want children and I say do you...yet make sure you are financially ready. Yesterday, I attended the cycling class and it was hard. I did finish yet, man was it difficult. So the instructor is much older than I am and she is hard to keep up with......lol. Today, I attended the gym heroes class and man was that not easy. I must admit the aches and pains are a reminder of my hard work. I am excited to see my body change over time. I am committed to me finally. That is a place that we all get to. I am sure of that. You know what it is, I have finally moved myself up on the priority list. I amRead More »from Tuesday was......................

Yesterday, I did get my hair cut and it was liberating. So by June I all of hair is going to be natural.. There is some perm left in my hair. I didn't want to walk around with a very low cut. So my stylist has cut the majority of perm out. I am so excited. I have to say it was very liberating. Words can not describe how I feel yet, I am totally me and that is something...........I haven't always felt or stated. It is kinda cool. I am aware some people may say are you on a journey to find yourself and my answer is no. Frankly, I have always known who I am and very self assured in my abilities to complete anything and accomplish any goal that I set my mind to. Yet, what I always lack was the greatest self confidence in my body. So my image has always been my struggle. It was funny to me how many questions I asked on how to take care of my hair. My NATURAL hair, to me that spoke volumes. How can I not know how to take care of what God has given me yet, I know how to take care of what manRead More »from So..........off to another great week
I spent the evening with a friend of mine we went to a jewelry party. i have to say the jewelry was nice. I went through the book and tried on the jewelry on and marked the ones that looked good on me. So tomorrow is the day. I am cutting my hair. I am actually excited I just wish I didn't have two pimples. Hey we all get them sometimes but my mothers has such lovely skin....I kid you not. So I am going natural and I planning on keeping my hair natural for the next two years. I feel as though it is something I need to do and just give my hair a break. Yeah, not much to say tonight yet, I did look in the mirror and realize that I dress really bland. I no longer want to blend in with the crowd. I am sure we all have felt that way well, actually I have a girlfriend that no matter what she wears she looks good and honestly....it pisses me off...lol. You know the type no matter what is going in in life she never looks like it is keeping her down. I am convince some women just have it or tapRead More »from It is Friday!!!
So I had every intention of going to the gym and guess what...I did not make it. I went to the grocery store made dinner which by the way was pretty good. The chicken could have been seasoned a little more but hey, sometimes you just have to go with the flow. It turns out everyone one decide to stay home tonight.So, I chilled with the family and had a very nice evening. I think my son is allergic to something because he had some red spots after dinner. I recently found out he may be lactose intolerant. I am as well yet, this did not occur until college so, now he really is only eating soy ice cream and etc. All I need is some lactose free cheese to make macaroni and cheese and I am good to go. The changes we make for our children. I spoke to a friendvtonight and it was a really good conversation. We talked about marriage. What else do people talk about..........lol just kidding. A lot of my friends are married now and expecting their first child. I am extremely happy for them yet, IRead More »from I did not make it to the Promiseland
So I worked from home today. I was able to catch up and find some more information about some emails I have sent and following up. You know it is amazing what it takes to receive donations. We will get into that today, another day perhaps. The purpose of my post to talk about what I do. So I had some tuna today and along with some crackers....................man was it good. Now the time is 4:18pm and I have not finished dinner. I need to finish this soon because I am going to the gym today. I want to go back to the tight and tone. Now what I need to understand is what needs to be tight and tone......lol. Because what I see everyday does not need toning rather it needs to leave and that is what I am working on. I know the tight and toning helps yet, it is funny if you think about it. It is interesting what becomes so important was we grow older. In our youth we felt invincible and as we get older we become acutely aware of our mortality that we sometimes act with no regard to others orRead More »from Again another day
I got up this morning sent some emails, made some phone calls, made breakfast, and ran some errands. Made sure my son watched sesame street and word world. I understand someone's mouth dropped at the thought of child watching television yet, those shows rock!! Let me tell you. Word world does a great job for pre-reading skills you should check them out. I had an appointment that my son accompanied me too and that was it. It took longer than necessary so I didn't make it to the gym. I went to church tonight came home and..........had some cereal and a couple of potato chips.....cue the scary music here...WHAT ARE YOU DOING!!!!! I honestly, felt bad and went back and forth with myself as I ate the chips why......let's see what was I hungry for........I wanted some peace and quiet my son really bothered me today with something he did which was very unsafe. I keep explaining to him that it is not safe to play when we are walking into the house at night. If someone has any concrete stepsRead More »from Well this happened today...............
So I went to the tight and tone class. I enjoyed it and it was hard......lets just say I feel it. So I have been struggling with deciding to cut my hair. For most people it is not a big deal yet, I have a perm and I believe I want to go natural. So my hair is short already so ....what more do I need to do but grow my perm out. I am cutting my hair this weekend. I am so nervous because this is a big deal and the more I think about it the more I realize it is only hair. My hair will grow back. Yet, when I look in the mirror I will no longer see me...rather the me that I am use to. I will see a different me and this is a new phase in my life. I begin to think is this really such a new phase rather more of self acceptance. A lot of my college friends went natural some have remained natural and some have not. I actually have no intention of remaining natural rather if I decided to change my hair I will. One thing is for sure my hair needs to be a lot healthier then it is right now. I amRead More »from The ned of the day after
So this morning was great got up prayed finished a deadline. So I come home for lunch to have a pita sandwich, grapes, and BBQ chips. Now I know some people would say if you are changing your life what is the deal with the chips well, they looked good and guess what I ate them.. Honestly, I did not over indulge well maybe a little yet, I am okay with it. I think that is a great point because we often do things and regret them and beat ourselves up when it has already passed. So now if I just apply that principle to parenting I am good to go.....lol I do feel every muscle in my body from the exercise class I attended last night. So that is good and I am looking forward a class tonight maybe aqua aerobics.....sounds fun.
So this evening I went to my local YMCA which I have to say is the best deal ever. I attended a step class had a babysitter for my son for 2hours for only $4.00 dollars what more can I say. Now I know I may seem too excited...yet, have a kid and pay for daycare and etc. you will understand this joy.

so today or actually in the past weeks I have made decisions to change my life so I can be healthy. See, that is important right I also want to wear certain clothes and you know what who doesn't. I am beginning this journey to explore what is really eating me. I have figure out there some things that I am not at peace with and it is only I who can change them. For example, I went to the store the other day to buy my son some pajamas. We all know children grow quickly then and I also purchases some more supplies for our arts and crafts night. Trust me I am not the quintessential mom but right now my son is at home with me and I have to make sure he still has the same structure as his school. back to me see..........that is the problem I have not placed myself first in a very long time and I do miss me. So today I begin my journey for I eat not for hunger yet, for myself. I miss me. I miss my alone time. I understand every mother has this issue married or unmarried the fact still remainsRead More »from the journey of life, food, and everything in between
