Up to scale

Well, it's a beautiful day to be happy and alive!  Here's to hoping I can actually keep up with my posting schedule this week.  I haven't been doing to well with that lately, but I will give it a try.  

Today, I want to talk about this whole workout thing I'm doing right now.  I've been working out and eating better since January 2 of this year.  As of yesterday, I've logged food in LoseIt for 197 days!  I've only lost just over 10 pounds, but remember, I did have two months where I sort of hit that crazy plateau!  However, I didn't let that sidetrack me.  I kept going and I'm a little excited to do my monthly weigh-in August 1.  But, that's not what brings me here for this post...

A couple of weeks ago, I was in the hallway of my office building getting prepped to do some field work.  Well, someone caught me in the hallway and asked me who are looking cute for?  I started laughing because I was NOT cute at all that day, since I was working outside part of the day.  I told her and she said she was referencing my smaller frame.  

the compliment that changed my day

Anyone who has ever tried to lose weight knows this one thing to be true, you are the last person to notice the actual physical change in your body.  I've been known for a couple of months that my clothes are fitting better.  Just a few weeks ago, I got on a pair of jeans without even having to unzip them.  But when I stand in front of the mirror getting dressed to go to the office, or anywhere for that matter, all I see is a tummy (and now all the extra flab I've gained since losing those pounds).  I'm not complaining though.  It just means it is time for me to change up my workout.  

So, this post was nothing major, but I just wanted to let you know fellow people on the hunt to lose some weight - you're doing fabulous!  Keep moving forward and remember that you are much more than a number on the scale.  It took me a while to learn that and once I did, I was much better for it.

Save Yourself

I am so proud of myself.  I have a tendency to just want to help people, even if it hurts myself.  This year, I've made it a point to focus on self-care.  Not being mean or selfish, but I need to make sure Tameika is good first.  

A couple of weeks ago, someone in my life needed something.  They never asked, but they kept dropping hints about what they needed.  Last year, I would have just offered to help.  This year, that's not going to be the case.  Well, the situation has worked itself out.  That's a great thing.  

Honestly, even if the question would have been asked, I would not have helped.  Why?  I'm glad you asked...

It's because for the first time in a few years, I'm finally coming first in my own life.  I'm taking my life back and it feels so wonderful.  I hope this lasts and that the people around me support what I'm doing.  

I can't keep draining myself in order to support others.  Since I'm such an advocate for self-care, it's time f…

Days of family past

My final post of the year had some cool questions.  I'm going to use this post to answer those questions.  Do not worry, I'm not going to tell who asked what (because I want to protect you from the possible wrath).  I'm just going to answer them.

1 - What is your relationship with your cousin? I have no relationship with my cousin.  In fact, I reference this person as my dad's sister's child.  That relationship ended on August 21, 2017.
2 - What do you think caused this reaction from your cousin? Honestly, I don't have an answer for you.  Of course, my parentals and I have talked at length about it and both told me what they believe to be the cause.  I would rather not say because I want to keep their lives as peaceful as possible and not have to deal with this particular person.  
3 - How do you feel about being around your cousin? I don't want to be around my dad's sister's child.  As far as I am concerned, this person told me exactly what they felt abo…

Year End Review - Edition 2017

This is typically the hardest post for me to write.  You would think I would be used to it by now since I do it every single year, but it doesn't get easier.  I truly think they get more interesting though.  And believe me, 2017 was one for the books.  But let's get to how amazing this year actually was.  

First quarter of the year is always a bit interesting because I get to enjoy Winter and my birthday!  A new person was born into the family and she was absolutely perfect.  She still is and I just enjoy her so, even though I don't see her often.  But what makes her so great to me is that she was born on my actual due date.  Kindred spirit, maybe?  And in thrilling fashion, I celebrated my birthday an entire usual.  It was fun times with my friends and I absolutely had a blast with my parentals.  
The second quarter was a bit quiet.  I finally came up with a blog schedule and I really needed that to happen.  That was also when I sort of regrouped and decided to t…
