Update for October

Hello everyone, So today I have no recipe for you but an update on my new lifestyle and weight loss journey. I have to admit there have been days when I wasn't too happy with Mr scale because whatever reason sometimes it said I gained 3 pounds or whatever. Every single day I would restart over again and try something else to see if it would work. There has been a lot of trial and error and sometimes it would work and other times not so much. With all that being said I am thrilled to tell you all that since July I have lost a total of 26 pounds. I still have a lot to go and its not coming off as quick as I would like it to. However I know it has to come off slow if you dont want to gain it all back. The foods I have been eating is ok sometimes probably not the most nutritional or healthy. Its so hard this time of year when you love to cook to try to lose weight lol. I refuse to give up though, I have come this far might as well see how close to my goal weight I can get. I am determined and I think that might be the key to help me but its hard to be motivated every single day.
Now on to some other news, why I have been MIA from my blog. I really haven't been cooking much lately and I have no new recipes to try out as of yet, I will have more for November. Another reason is my oldest daughter Isabella has been sick with a bladder infection and then my mother came to visit and now tomorrow is Isabella's birthday. There is a ton of things going on right now in my family. In my extended family my baby cousin Ashley, who would raid my makeup when she was a little girl is having her first baby any day now. I am so happy for her and Shawn. I keep thinking of that blond haired blue eyed little girl in pigtails running to my bedroom and playing with all my makeup. She would play with that stuff for hours on end and if she made a mess oh well I didn't care. Now that little baby is all grown up and having a family of her own, this is something she has always wanted. Ashley if you are reading this I have always thought of as a little sister more so than a cousin. I love you sweetheart and you will be a wonderful mom.
I hope you all have a wonderful day and dont forget to live, laugh and love every second that you breath today.


  1. Heather is doing very well and her progress is visibly notable. I am very proud of her. :) As far as Ashley and the new baby, Coop, I am very excited about that, too. I wrote a piece on my blog about Coop at this leak :
    Ashley was supposed to be my next ex-wife but she found a young, handsome man to spend her life with. They make a great couple. Congrats Ashley and Shawn!
