February 10th

Ok, mentally I'm feeling better today. Knowing that my birthday is 8 days is making me a littler nervous.  I know its because I'm about to be 50 but why is that bugging me so much.  My daughter asked me to start helping her with working out.  I worked out with her on Tuesday night and I didn't think she was going to make it 10 minutes into the workout, so we had to stop after 15 mminutes.  I made up a workout for her for tonight.  I don't think its too hard but now I'm wondering if she will make it, LOL.  She will make it, I remember the first few times I worked out with my trainer, I really thought I wasn't going to make it but 32lbs later I'm a lot stronger and healthier.  Watching everything that goes into my mouth has become a daily thing now.  I'm not perfect because I do have days when I want to eat the entire bag of chips and not just a serving.  When I do eat more than I should or things that aren't healthy my body does let me know, ugh I get so mad at myself on those days.  For those that are just getting to know me.  I'm a divorced mom, I have two grown daughters ages, Colette 26 and Nicole 21.  They are pretty good girls, having a few issues with being adults but hopefully by the time they are 30, they will have it down!! (hopefully).  Colette has two little angels Ciera 7 and Nevaeh 3.  Ciera had a stroke in utero, she can not walk, talk or see.  Her hearing is perfect and when I have a bad day and come home and see her smiling that makes my day so much brighter.  Nevaeh is something else, she is so funny and so full of surprises everyday!!!  I love being a Nana.   I fullfilled one of my my dreams in 2009 and finished college and graduated with my BS/BA in Business Management with a concentration in Human Resource Management.  A few months after that I was laid off from my job.  I didn't find another job until June 2010, this has been a trying time for me, learning how to live on so much less has taught me to be thankful for the little things.  If it had not been for the Lord on my side I don't know where I would be right now.  Thank you God for being there for me through this.  I'm not working an entry level job, not my dream job but its a job.  Not giving up on my dream, still pursuing it.  It gets hard sometimes but as long as I have hope I'm going to keep striving for my goal.  Take care everybody and have a blessed day!!!

  1. Congrats on your degree, Lisa, that is a major milestone!!! and we share the fact that we are learning to live on a lot less, and I agree, it does help you appreciate the little things in life,
    To me, it sounds like you are blessed, abundantly, and the adult kids, they get it together, eventually, they still have bumps in the roads, my prayer is that they learn from those bumps, and then it is a blessing, not a time of chaos!!
