Weekly Weigh-In


I’m feeling stuck…again. My weight this week was exactly the same as last week. That was a little deflating but I’ll take that over having a gain. I’m going to have to be more consistent about hitting the gym and eat way more veggies and a few less carbs.

This weekend, I posted a pic of me in my Mickey Mouse leggings. Two body shots in as many weeks? I’m feeling myself! I love them and felt like I look ok in them. It’s an extremely vulnerable place to be in for me, sharing myself. I find that in my vulnerability, there is strength. Luckily, I have an amazing support system which helps when I need a bit of shoring up.

I got to visit my home town this weekend. I got to see my parents and our youngest daughter (She just turned 26 on 1/23). I miss them so much so it also makes me feel ‘full’ to see them and be around them.20170129_093917

I also got to see cousins and countless others I have known my entire life who’ve become ‘family’. I’m glad we have our life in the the Tri-Cities and for all the ‘framily’ (friends that are like family) we’ve gained over the past 12yrs but there’s no place like home.

I’m off to another adventure until next week.

Weekend Fun

What a fantastic weekend! It was the weekend of the 66th Annual Golden Gloves in Tacoma. I sang the Canadian & U.S. National Anthem for both nights of the event.


I also got to see my sister, my niece & nephews and my cousin.

Camille (cousin) & Christara (sister)
"D" (nephew)
Vanshae (niece)

I also got to spend some time with my parents for their birthday weekend…Dad (Feb 27th) & Mom (Mar 2nd).


I had my first trip to IKEA. That was pure insanity! It was worse than Costco on a Saturday during Christmas. I loved the deals they had but online is the way to go with them.
We had a harrowing trip home through snow, ice and multi-vehicle accidents. It definitely got the heart racing.
Now, we are home on our bed and on our way to dream land.
