Losing A Friend Today –


I have to admit that this may be ALL of my fault – admitting it does make the pain a tad bit more bearable…..

I really thought that this thing would be good to me and stay my BEST FRIEND… but things have changed between us and I do not know what to do!! I was in LOVE with ” MR. SCALE” …. he was the PERFECT boyfriend.. told me and showed me all the things I wanted….

Eventually he started changing on me….  So either I have to get rid of HIM or change a few of MY own habits…….

We have been through this battle before and this fight isn’t as bad as they used to be, so maybe there is HOPE..

Refrigerator Photo 4 My Son


kideatingtrash

Sometimes WE ALL can forget on the many wonderful things that we have…… So I am sure before my son even tries to open his mind up to tell his MOUTH to say that there is not anything to eat in the house…he has no choice but to have to look / glance at this photo……

I tell him that a great deal of countries do not even have clean running water while you are BEYOND BLESSED to have a mother that buys you 6 cases of Vitamin Water every month to share with her!

You have fruit to CHOOSE from….. snacks that you or I do not even need…..etc..etc..etc.. He gets it now, because a picture is indeed worth A THOUSAND WORDS!

Snacks –


Did he REALLY want me to pull over for a box of these????? They have 10 grams of protein though! BUT SO WHAT!!!! Ugghhh….  Talking about, Mom….I need some more energy! Boy what you know about energy!!!  Yes, they are good too!

LOL and I wonder with all of this new FOUND energy that he is THINKING that he needs – will this dip over into him keeping his clothes off of the floor in his room? Im just saying – that is a valid point that I am about to ask his butt now!!

It’s Mental


Your mental health is very important. You will not have a healthy body  if you don’t also take care of your mind. People depend on you. It’s important  for you to take care of yourself so that you can do the important things in  life  —  whether it’s working, learning, taking care of your family,  volunteering, enjoying the outdoors, or whatever is important to you. ( etc…etc..etc..etc.. )

Good mental health helps you enjoy life and cope with problems. It  offers a feeling of well-being and inner strength. Just as you take care of  your body by eating right and exercising, you can do things to protect your  mental health. In fact, eating right and exercising can help support good  mental health. You don’t automatically have good mental health just because you don’t have mental health illness. You have to work to keep your mind healthy.

Remember to always make time  for you. It’s important to care for yourself. Think of this as an  order from your doctor, so you don’t feel guilty! No matter how busy you are,  you can try to set aside at least 15 minutes each day in your schedule to do  something for yourself, like taking a bubble bath, going for a walk, or calling  a friend.  Being a WOMAN means that we are ALL wearing multiple hats whether by CHOICE or not….. we are wearing them. So why not do our best in taking care / better care of ourselves.. It really indeed all starts mentally because if the mind goes, then so will everything else!

Please make it a point to live and be mentally healthy starting >>>>>>>>NOW!

Favorite Bites


Who needs cooking shows ….Weight Watchers… Atkins …. LA Weightloss….Nutri System or Jenny Craig when I have my own favorite meals to keep me together!

I do not know what has triggered my body to ONLY eat certain things….. I mean for months – I hardly eat anything else different that these things unless I go out to dinner but even with going out…. I only revert to salad…soup….EVIL pasta ( LOL ) and that is all……

I saw these when I was out shopping with my momma and I have been hooked ever since – they could take out the peaches though….

I actually eat this for breakfast …lunch…snack …dinner and snack again… not always with 2% milk thought cause milk isnt really “my friend”

These are just amazing…..drink vitamin water with it or just plain old water….it will feel like a refreshing snack that tastes like calories but isnt!!

I need tons of fiber folks.. so why not over indulge on this chocolate cream of wheat cereal…. Dont jude the box until you have eaten what’s inside of it! LOL

These are great because I cout NOT EVER imagine eating egg yolk again ever in life!!! ugghhhh – bird embryos are surely not for ME!! LOL

Who knew that they made soy doughnuts taste so good and have soooooooooooooo many healthy ingredients in them!!! Check the side of the box!

This drink has been blessing my evenings for the last few months…..and it also saves me a lot of stops at the coffee houses and spending money!

Umm Vitamin Water – I go through like 5 a day….. maybe because I drink liquids more than I eat perhaps! SOOOO unhealthy I know!!!

Another “snack” but they are sugar free! It is better than eating soft batch cookies! ( my old favorite 2 yrs ago ) You cant eat just one!!

My real DINNER! LOL

 I stumbled upon this on accident and I have not been the same since!!! PLEASE TRY IT!! It does not even taste like ice cream! At least I have portion control down pact!

Hanging in The Heat!


I still managed to have fun in 99 degree heat today! LOL I kept telling the Lord that He can turn down the heat because I DO NOT NEED A SUN TAN on my skin – GEESH! I woke up feeling so wonderful that I scared myself! LOL …Sounds a tad bit weird I know but when so many NEGATIVE things have transpired over a time frame – genuine and non motive happiness from people at times can shock you!

When there is massive shopping, eating, laughing, fellowship, coupons, cook outs, swimming involved – so is FUN!

YES!! I spent waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much green currency today BUT oh my goodness, it was kind of worth it! LOL My pocket book may have been hollering like crazy but my heart was smiling brighter THAN THE SUN!!! So yeah, it was worth it all! Right when I feel like that there are no HONEST people left in the world… ( IM JOKING ) But for real……. it just feels so amazing to have great friens…
