Goals

Willie and I hopped in the car to drive to Memphis for the big marathon.  Willie will be running his first marathon and I'll be adding another state to my marathon quest.  It's a moment for me but it's a BIG moment for Willie. That's why he drove the entire 8 hours.  But we didn't [...]

Brown Thursday, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, those are all over.  It's time for #GivingTuesday. So what is Giving Tuesday all about? Getting together to celebrate generosity by giving! We give all our money to the stores so why not give to help out a great cause. Last year we raised $2500 for the children [...]

Hello from Virginia! I arrived yesterday after two delayed flights but we still made it here. I'm running the Marine Corps Marathon this weekend and decided to bring my mom along too. I've been working really hard to make this trip possible and this is the one thing I wanted to do in life besides [...]

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope it's been a great week for everyone.  It's been a good week for me!  I'm always behind when I can't do my meal prep on Sundays.  It's been a very telling week and I've learned a couple of things about myself. 1.  I started logging my food again this week. [...]

FYI: This is going to be a new section of the blog.  It's going to be the question of the week.  Sometimes I'll take questions from what people ask me or sometimes I'll talk about some questions that have come to my attention through reading and just normal life. This week I took the question [...]

Happy August everyone!  It's the start of a new month which means anything is possible.  Start thinking about the things you hope to accomplish this month. Yesterday was my momma's birthday!  It was kind of a chill day for her.  My  momma likes to celebrate occasions with food which is hard for Willie and I [...]

Work in progress

I am not the person I want to be, but that's ok.  I may never be that person I want to be because once I get to where I'm going, I always see something else. I wanted to lose weight and when I did lose the weight I wanted to run a half marathon. After [...]

Proactive, that's the word of the week.  Last night I posted about the perks of being proactive and I'm sure a lot of you missed that post.  Here's your chance to go back and read it before you continue with this post. Are you a proactive or reactive person? Do you let situations control your [...]

If there is something you want in life, you MUST go after it! It's time to be proactive. Sometimes talk is cheap!  It's time to stop talking and time to start doing something.  "You are what you do, not what you say you’ll do." I posted this quote on Facebook this morning and it got [...]
