I love me some clothes

Today was a wonderful shopping day!  My cousin is getting married in a few months at the beach and you know I have to be too cute for those vows.  I noticed one of my favorite places was having a dress sale.  You now how I love me some Old Navy.  Well, I walked out of there with three dresses.  You know I was happy about that.  However, there is another small victory that I have to tell you about.  

As you all know, I have been on a weight loss journey.  I use LoseIt to help me keep track of the calories that I eat and the workouts that I do.  Just last week, I had to add another hole to one of my favorite belts.  Since I was already at Old Navy, I decided to try on a pair of shorts.  For those of you that really know me, you know that I haven't worn a pair of shorts since I was a junior in high school.  Ok, let me get back to my story.  

I tried on a pair of shorts at Old Navy.  They were a smaller size (size 16).  I haven't been that size since I was a junior in high school.  In fact, that was the size I was when I was a cheerleader.  As I was pulling them up my legs, I got discouraged that just figured that I wasn't going to be able to get them over my thighs.  I did.  Then I got worried again because I was scared that I wouldn't be able to zip them or get them buttoned.  I did.  Needless to say, I walked out of Old Navy with those pair of shorts.  

I love shopping.  I love shopping even more when I get to buy a smaller size.  I'm not ashamed to say this - when I started this journey, I was wearing a solid size 24 in a dress.  I can now wear an 18 in dresses.  Now, my boobs haven't gone anywhere so I have just learned to deal with that.  However, I am learning to embrace my body.  I'm always going to be a plus diva and I am OK with that.  I like my curves.  I'm just glad that stores are embracing that some people are curvy.  

So, my special s/o today goes to LoseIt for helping me to continue to reach my goals and to Old Navy for just always being one of my favorite places to shop.  Now, I don't have any photos of me in my new outfits just yet, but when I do, I'll share them with you.  Happy shopping, plus divas, skinny divas, and to all the fabulous people of the world.  You deserve it!

Many Years of Thursdays

Trigger Warning: Sexual Assault

I had a blog post ready to type.  I was going to tell you about my birthday month and all the fun I had during March celebrating with family and friends.  And then, Thursday, March 28 happened and Grey's Anatomy hit me with Episode 19 of Season 15 titled Silent All These Years.  As hard as it was for me to admit my story, when I posted tweets about being triggered and the experience, I finally typed WE instead of simply saying you.  

I along with many people were triggered by that episode that night.  Quite frankly, it's hard for me to write this post, but I'm going to push through.  

My typical Thursday looks like this - work, workout, do a devotion/bible study, eat, shower.  At 8pm EST, I am only communicating via Twitter because I'm going all the way in with the live tweets and enjoying my time with the Grey's Anatomy and Station 19 viewers.  It's part of my boundary that I am strongly holding on to this year.  However, that part…

POWER

Disclaimer: I will be mentioning my Christianity.  It's not the full topic of conversation, but it will be in here in a few spots.  Proceed with caution.  

"He has kids because God knew when you met him, you wouldn't act right."
This isn't the first time this has been said to me.  Well, not in these words.  It's always something and then you wouldn't act right.  Now the first time this was said to me, I got a bit spicy.  As it has been a continued phrase in my life, I honestly haven't paid it that much attention.  Why?  I know my relationship with myself and I know my relationship with Christ.  So, I did tell you that religion was not going to be a big thing in here, so I won't drop scripture on you.  However, we are going to have a little chat about energy. 

I've been extremely in tune with myself lately.  I've accepted a few things about myself...

I'm an empath I'm healing I'm on a path of discovery
Did you noticed how I took…

Painful

Ayesha Curry has been the talk of all the innanets for about two weeks now.  I'm not going to dwell on this because I have other things to discuss.  However, I will say that I wished she would have kept that in a private family conversation.  Just because you are in the light doesn't mean it all has to be in the light.  Also, I get it.  We all want to feel wanted.  Even the people clowning on her want to be wanted.  But go on ahead and continue to go off about her living a lavish life when you cannot figure out how to live your best one.  Moving on...

I didn't do my first Wednesday post this month.  Yall are just going to be hearing from me once in May.  But, I try to be as transparent as I am comfy with.  So, without telling too much, let's just say the end of April and the first 12 days of May have been a horrible hell that I didn't even know could exist.  However, I'm moving along and still standing. Let's be real - anxiety is a real piece of work!

Hones…
