7.6.19 | Hey

Saturday, July 6, 2019
It's been a few years since I've posted to this blog. Wow, how time flies! In that time, a lot has changed. And, well, a lot has stayed the same. Namely, my weight. I'm close to my original starting weight - standing at a staggering 234 pounds. Sigh.

Like many, my life has all over the place these days. Stress, depression, and a bounty of things that I can't control... And in the process of seeking resolve to everything that makes life challenging, I quickly abandon my wellness, fitness and healthy eating ways.

Why am I this way?

I don't have an answer just yet. But, I must do something to get back on track. I need to dust myself off and keep my wellbeing in the forefront, no matter what.

2nd half of 2019.... here I come!

Day two in hospital lock-up. I was over it!
The last time I had any online presence, I was so close to ONEderland. Then something happened. Then  I  happened. Story of my life, right? Since July, 2017 I have  1) experienced a significant health scare with a Multiple Sclerosis attack and hospitalization 2) fell into deep depression as a result 3) and gained nearly 40 pounds back. No matter how frustrated I am, not matter who or what is to blame, I must take full responsibility and get my whole life back in order.

Current Weight: 236.6lbs

What I'm doing today:
I am simply going back to basics; walking daily, eating more plant-based than not (even incorporated green smoothies), lots of water, and writing it all down. I hope to update here, weekly, and vlog periodically.

Time to re-start. Time to get it done. I will not leave 2017 the same way I came in. Nope.

Starting Dress Size: 22/24

Whole 30 and a Whole Summer '16!

Tuesday, June 21, 2016
So, it's been a while. The last year (and some change) have been very interesting. In a good way. However, I've reached a point. A point of fatigue. A boiling point of frustration. With no one but myself to point a chubby finger at. It's Summer '16 and I'm dealing with the same issues of yo-yoing and obesity, since I was actually 16! It has to stop... NOW! If not now, when? So...

The Plan:              Whole30 (real food, minus grains, legumes, dairy, alcohol), MyFitnessPal
The Workout:       Walking/Jogging, Orange Theory (Circuit) Fitness
The Motivation:   Wellness, Family Planning :o), Summer '17 Twerk Contests

Starting Weight:    246.4

I certainly plan to keep this blog updated with my renewed journey; good or bad. Don't you worry. While, hopefully, sharing a bit more than just numbers. So, here I go.

Again! ;o)

P.S. Here's to a Summer when I don't wear signature black, everytime I go out! Geesh.
