Overwhelmed

I have been feeling overwhelmed the past couple of days.

I feel as though I have taken on too much…at work and at home. Nothing is getting a hundred percent of me. I feel as though I am not even giving seventy percent to anything.

Home or personal…class –ugh! I signed up for a couch to 5k…feeling completely defeated as my hips are killing me today. I should have been at practice last night but instead took a bath. Class…ya not currently in the mood which isn’t helping.

Work…too many things coming at once and I actually feel trapped. I am able to do my job but feel as though I can’t keep up with what is coming at me (not able to do what needs to get done at the best of my ability).

Too much right now…trying to breathe.

Blessings.

Be

This was  a carmel chocolate candy wrapper.  It spoke to me.  I really haven’t ever thought I would be someone anyone would want to look up to.  But why not?  Why wouldn’t others want to be me?! Ha.  But really?  Why don’t I look up to me?  Goals?

Blessings.

Crown

I am beginning a Couch to 5K program this morning. I am certain this will kill me. The old me.

I am excited for the future with this program, and the paths it will open for me.

I am not a runner. Never have been. But I want to get back in the habit of exercising. I know that my body isn’t going to like it at first…maybe never…but it will be good for my mind, body and soul.

What things do you do to stay in the healthy mindset? How are your New Year goals going this January?

Blessings!

I wish that I could say I believe this to be true…But I don’t.  I believe that you need to know your past to be able to correct your future.

I love Edna, and her life suggestions. I just don’t think they are realistic.

What quote speaks to you, but isn’t realistic?  I would love to hear your thoughts.

Blessings.

Hello Fresh Korean Beef BiBimBap

img_9215-1Okay…so we got a discount code for Hello Fresh. To be honest…I wasn’t a big fan of it due to cost, but with the menu selections that were available, I found this recipe for Korean Beef BiBimBap.  I love this recipe, and the ease of preparation presented.img_9216-1I was able to cook to the recipe, and add the amount of spice that was good for me.  I love that!  It was authentic tasting, and perfect for the home cook.Bonus for me:  David is not a fan of Korean food (although, after tasting this, he did agree that is good!), so I ended up making four (4) dishes of this. FOUR! Lunch and dinner with four servings…love my gastric sleeve! And Hello Fresh!!  I now have a good, simple recipe to replicate with my own ingredients (simple ingredients) that I can find at the grocery store.  Have you tried a home delivery package such as Hello Fresh?  Thoughts?

Blessings.

Ten Year Challenge

Ya, so I got caught up in this…

First profile picture:

And then December 2018:

I posted that it is a ten year difference, and 115 pounds!!

So incredibly proud of my ten years. I really am in love with my wrinkles. Really!

What do you love about the last ten years? But really? I am so grateful for my weight loss surgery and the gifts it has given me.

I haven’t been well the past couple of days…but I can guarantee that if I didn’t have gastric sleeve I would be much worse now.

I am so thankful for so many things…but especially my surgery.

Blessings.
