I am in charge of how I feel... I choose happiness!!!

I saw a number on the scale today that I have not seen in over two years and it was the day of my wedding.
The scale stared back at me and said 161.
After my horrible start to my week I was worried.
Old me would have shoved tons of food down my face.
New me wanted to not touch food.
But I kept myself in check.
I ate healthy and continued to workout even when it was the last thing I wanted to do.
I realize that my health is important.
I am important.
120 squats holding a 15 pound kettleball, 120 dead lifts, 40 pushups, 40 tricep dips, 120 crunches later and I can assure you, you will feel amazeballz...
Today I am choosing to feel happy.
I have been so upset and down in the dumps this week.
Feeling like I just couldn't even find it in me to smile.
Negative Nancy was in full effect which just hasn't been me for so long.
Every little thing was bothering me.
I won't lie...
Things are still bothering me.
But today I am choosing to put a smile on my face and be as happy as I can be.
Saw this when I was creeping on IG yesterday.
The fat girl in me had a total foodgasm.
Oh this girl...
She would NOT go to sleep last night.
She was crying keeping the girls awake, Kev was gone, and I was ready to pull my hair out.
She FINALLY crashed in our bed sprawled out like this.
What a stinker!
She is the true "baby" of the family and I think she knows it.
We are taking the kids to Coney Island this weekend for their annual fall festival.
I am anxious to take new family pics and see how much I have changed since last year...
190 pounds and extremely post partum and I was not working out at all at this point...
I will be back on Monday for a compare post =)
I hope that y'all have a fabulous weekend.
Please hug your family tight for me as my family is going through a really rough time.
Love you all for your sweet words, comments, prayers, texts, etc. etc.
You will NEVER know how much it truly means to me!


  1. Sending lots of prayers and love to you Marcy! Can't wait to see how great you look in those pics lady! Hope this weekend thing start turning around!

  2. I hope you have a wonderful (and relaxing) weekend! Coney Island sounds like fun!

  3. Girl I think we all struggle with being a negative nancy. I know the past year has been hard for myself since my hubby has been out of work. Sometimes you have to look at the bad to appreciate the good because that's normally when you realize the good stuff God has blessed us with. I hope you have a great & relaxing & happy weekend.
    p.s. you are looking bomb . com girl :)
