Mid-April through mid-May is not my favorite time. My dad’s birthday was April 18th and he passed away on May 13th. It is a long 30+ days. Over the past three years, I have tried to come up with ways to divert my attention. The Game of Thrones is one way I have been able… Continue reading A Month To Get Through
I started this blog a few or so years ago. Wanted to use it as a way to document/be accountable to my weight loss journey. Well, much like a person who falls off a wagon for whatever reason, I too have fallen off the weight loss wagon. Four months ago I decided to get one… Continue reading Back at it again!!

As one ventures off on an almost two mile walk, it is important to make… Continue reading Back at it!!
My heart raced as the alarm clock blared the obnoxious beep. “Ugh….” I moaned as I hit the snooze button, cursing myself for signing up for such a long race, terrified for what was coming.
