My Not So Humdrum Life Bits and Piece of my everyday life

Well we are already into the new year and I have slacked off some already on my diet. I am trying very hard to get back on plan and schedule to achieve my goals. For Christmas my daughter bought me an entire year to the gym along with a personal trainer. I meet with my trainer on January 6th and did an assessment. She took some pictures of me as a start to the second part of my journey. I have meet with her 2 times so far since my assessment. I will post information of my 6 week assessment. I have a goal of 27 pounds off by the end of March. I think it is doable, if I work hard for it which I believe I can do.


So there I am at this stage. Here I have lost a total of 60 pounds from my heaviest. I piddled around for the last year and gained 20 back. I had originally lost 80 pounds! I was going to weight watchers and weighing in every week and going to planet fitness 4 to 5 days a week. I stopped. The different I have noticed the most is when I lost down to this weight I looked so much smaller, for I was toned! Going to the gym plays a big factor into your success. I am a true believer of that. You feel better and feel better about yourself as well.

I am trying to figure out a new schedule to get the gym worked into my schedule as of late and I admit it is hard but doable. I just have to decide what is more important and  make it a priority. So no more sleeping in, time to get my lazy ass out of bed and hit the gym! I was doing it before so I can do it again.


Here is a picture of me at the
very beginning back in April 2015.





As for my weight watchers I quit the meetings not because they weren’t working but for the cost. I am doing this on my own with the help of the app itracker. It works a lot just like the weight watchers but only cost like 7$ for everything.

Well we rang in another new year! This year has a lot of meaning to it. For starters 10 years ago this January we had a terrible ice storm! One that left us without electricity for 14 days! Long cold days and nights!  Also 10 years ago this March I was diagnosed with breast cancer! I am happy to report I am 10 years cancer free!

Now as for the last year, it was a bad / good year. Bad for we had some rough family situations but turned out to be really good. I met my grandson in April! I actually got to cut the cord, talk about a bonding experience! Him and his mom moved back to Tennessee to work things out with his daddy. I am happy to report all is going well on that front, however, I pray for his safety everyday for he is now deployed. Being that my daughter and grandson have moved back into the house with my husband and I. New adventures around every corner of every day with a mobile 8 month old! Makes me understand the saying … have children when your young! Although I have to say I total get where people say having them later in life keeps you young! You to busy to see just how old you are getting! lol All in all I would not change one thing for I am totally enjoying every moment I get to spend with them. I know in a short time they will be going back home and I will once again have to adjust to the empty nest.

I am trying to get back into my crafting world. I have some wonderful friends that I will be introducing you to as the year goes on, but for right now this will just be about me and my mindless ramblings.
