"I am in awe that you managed to not smoke. You are so right that you have to forgive so that you can live. It took me so long to figure that out. You give hope that I can be happy regardless what."

The Funeral

Today was my Mother's funeral.I did not enter this day with any expectations nor with any high hopes, as I knew that to do such a thing would be futile.Instead, I gave myself permission.I gave myself permission to do anything that I damn well pleased. For today only, if I truly felt that I "needed" to smoke, I would. If I truly felt that I "needed" to drink myself into oblivion, that would be okay too. I gave myself permission to just be and that it would be okay. I knew that it was going to be…See More

I had to unload...it sounds crazy and it IS...

Going through a bit of depression, possibly. After three weeks of watching over my dying Mother, she finally crossed over to the other side. I wish I could say our family gathered around her in her last few moments and that she will be deeply missed and that she was surrounded by so much love and happy memories in her last few days of life. Unfortunately, this wasn't the case. Our story is so much crazier than anyone could ever imagine.I will summarize this in as few words as I possibly can. It…See More

"As someone who lost both my parents to cancer, I know how hard it is. It is a real eye opener for sure. It is what has inspired me to work toward becoming healthy and realize what is important. My prayers are with you and your family at this time."

Life Lessons...

On Thanksgiving Day of 2014, my Mother was admitted to the hospital with excruciating abdominal pain. She was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer and a portion of her colon was removed. My Father stated that the doctor had gotten everything and they felt fairly confident that everything was taken care of. Upon visiting my Mother in the hospital, she admitted to me that she had never even had a colonoscopy and did not understand why this would happen to her. I asked if she would consider…See More

Something new...*Another Milepost*

Today, for the first time in a very long time, I realized that I could sit on my haunches with my feet under me (and my butt resting on my feet) COMFORTABLY. I have not been able to sit like that in years. I know it's an odd thing to notice but my quads were (sadly) never limber enough to be able to hold that position before. I know, I know...our parents always told us not to sit like that so I probably shouldn't even be admitting to it! The other thing? I can now CROSS MY LEGS! Lol! Hey, it's…See More

"Love the workouts. I found that once I added in resistance training, things improved. For me I need both cardio &  resistance training. But no work out will cancel out a bad eating plan. That is where I have had to place a large focus. BTW…"
