Wednesday Randomness.....

Good morning chickadees & chickadudes! Guess what day it is???? Humpday!! So today started out on a great note I decided at 10 pm last night as I was backing my ass into my bed I was going to get up at 4:45 and run this morning. Now this is damn early for me.  I get up about 6 and I can't seem to wrap my head around how running and exercising at that moment is more important than sleeping another hour and fifteen minutes!!! Doesn't make sense to me either but GUESS WHAT?!?!   I DID IT!!! (Patting myself on the back) I ran for 2.5 miles this morning in about 30 mins. Now this is probably very slow but I don't care I did it and slow and steady wins the race right?  I also weighed this morning and was down another pound. Slow and steady wins the race (repeats to self) Patience grasshopper. 
My youngest goes to daycare and they had a professional photographer come in and do some PR pictures for the daycare and they offered us the prints if we wanted them and they came out awesome! Check them out.

   I just love them!! She is so serious!!
So I will leave you with some random photos from my week!

This is a picture from the parking lot of where I have been running was going to take a picture of the view from the bridge but didn't want to stop running to take it LOL :)

Me after my run with all my sparkle! It was HOT!

It was Melayna's 10th birthday this week she got some hot new glasses! She loves peace signs and purple so this is my first Pinterest creation! I think it was a win!
Everyone have a great and awesome Wednesday!

It's Been Awhile.......

Hello guys & dolls!  It has been a hot minute since I have posted anything!  If I am honest with you I was just so very discouraged and in a funk because I felt like I didn't ever have anything good to post or any great success stories. 
So, needless to say a lot has happened for me personally at least since then.  I have started taking better care of myself and I have decided that it is ok to have a little me time.  I started about a month ago walking. We have a bridge that goes from the mainland to the ocean and a lot of people run or walk it the view is awesome.  (I will take pictures today and post tomorrow).  I started out just walking everyday and sweating balls cause this is Florida yall and it is H-O-T!! So I was all proud of myself for walking (which I shoudl be) but then guess what happened an 80 year old women passed me twice running back and forth on the bridge I was aw helz no I am not letting this woman kick my ass and be better than me so I started to RUN! That is right you heard me I RAN! Something I can tell you I always told people I could NEVER EVER DO!! Guess what happened I decided that I LOVE IT!!! In the last month I have worked myself up to running a whole 2.5 miles with out stopping or walking!!Now by no means does this make me a marathon runner but I can tell you it makes me damn proud! 
I actually get super excited about it everyday I think how much farther can I go? How much faster can I go?  I spend my nights on pinterest(who doesn't?) looking at workout clothes, running shoes, GPS watches and motivational quotes.  This is the first thing I have done in my life in a very long time that I have felt proud and what is really weird is like I want to tell EVERYONE!!! It is the weirdest thing. 
I will say on the weighloss front I have lost a few pounds I am down to 179 which is awesome for me because I was up to like 190 when I actually got off my ass and started doing something about it.  I will tell you I feel better and maybe even a little leaner. I can tell it in my clothes and honestly the most important place I can tell it is in my attitude I have improved so much in that area. 
So I am off to the bridge to kick ass and take names running style!!!
