My wish...

Pretty Strong Medicine

If you follow me on IG then you already know this but I seriously contemplated spiking my coffee this morning.
Why lie?
It's the truth.
It's even harder with my Hubby being off today!

So this Holiday has ALWAYS been #fatgirlheaven for me personally.
Like I have told y'all before it would be NOTHING for me to pack on 10+ pounds between now and Christmas.
Last year was the first year that I have ever lost weight during the Holidays and I am defuckingtermined to do it again.
I can assure you this...
As much as I love Pecan Pie it was a better feeling that eating that deliciousness in a pie crust.

This isn't saying I won't enjoy a piece of my favorite dessert, or an extra helping of sweet potato casserole, because I totally will.
I just won't let that send me spiraling out of control for days to come.
I finally feel like I have a grip on my health and the things I do and put into my body.
Something I have wanted so badly for so long.
I have worked out hard two days in a row this week.
Aiming to hit over 200 miles on my Nike+ app today.
Y'all that is HUGE for me!

If you would have told me this time last year I would have ran 200 miles+ in less than a year I would have peed my pants laughing at you.
Here I am today getting ready to go over that 200 mile mark...

Also I wanted to take the time (if you haven't seen it yet) to go HERE and vote for me!!!
I would appreciate it more than you know ;)

And lastly this has nothing to do with weight loss but for anybody looking to change somebody else's life this Christmas season I have a favor to ask you.
As some of you know my baby Brother has been going through a really hard time.
If any of you would want to possibly send him a Christmas card and some words of encouragement you have no idea how much it would mean to him, and to me as well.
He will not be home for Christmas this year.
As much as I know that he did this to himself I think he needs a spirit boost.
He is sad.
We are sad.
If he knows that there are people thinking and rooting for him it may help?
I can only pray that it would...
When I went and saw him this past weekend it was so hard to leave him.
It was hard to know that I don't know when I will see him next and that he won't be home for the Holidays.
I have realized that I cannot save him.
It's a bigger job than I could ever take on.
He has to save himself.
But again...
Maybe, just maybe, if he knows that he has people in his corner it may help him become more positive in this process.
Email me at: if you are interested so I can get you the address!


  1. I'm stuck at work too and I have like a zillion things that I need to be doing and none of which are work related. /sigh
    I'm giving myself one day of not feeling guilty on Thanksgiving. Then as far as leftovers go, they will be in moderation after Thursday.
    If I do Christmas Cards this year, I will shoot you an email and will get your brother's address. I'll make the decision if I do or not probably in the next week. Depends on how stress I get about Christmas shopping lol

  2. Good job running so much! 200 Miles is a LOT!!!

  3. Hey Marcy!! Please send me his address, I'll mail him a card all the way up here from Canada, eh!
    Have a very happy thanksgiving with your family!!

  4. Is he still in treatment? Email me his address and if we do cards this year, I will absolutely send him one.
