I'M BAAAAACK! And I'm glad to be here! A lot has changed since I was last online: We bought our first home, I finally received my BBA, I went through a jobless drought, and now I actually work in my field of study.

2019 ended on a horrible note. I fell and ruptured my Achilles and have been off work since October. I'm hoping to return to work by February but I have to re-learn how to walk in a regular shoe. I had been seriously working out and losing weight, down 20 lbs, and now I have to basically start my goal over because I've been immobile for months. I'm definitely looking forward to getting back to the accountability of SparkPeople.

What's new for 2020? I'm starting my Master's program so I can make a big career move this year and getting back to running which I really miss. I haven't seriously ran since 2017 so this is going to be great!

Am I still nuts about my hair being sweated out? Yes, yes I am but that doesn't hold me back or stop me from giving my all. Hopefully, in April I will be posting a new picture that has me down 20 more pounds. Fingers crossed!

My Goals:
My goal is to train for a 5k and actually learn to like exercising again. -2013 Achieved

To continue working out despite my crazy school and work schedules. -2017 Crushed it

To get down to 199 pounds. Why 199? Because it's less than 200! LOL!! -2020

To pick up running and stay with it. -2020

My Program:
I'm starting a new medically supervised eating program but I'm tailoring it to help combat my mental issues with food. -2020

Walking Away the Pounds, Piyo, 21 Day Fix Extreme, and free weights. Once I'm out of this walking boot and back in shoes my plan is to get back to running. -2020

Personal Information:
I'm a graduate of the Univeristy of Michigan-Dearborn, a wife, a mother, and a granny. My time is very tight but I utilize it to the fullest. I am a believer in Jesus Christ and it still takes HIM, a host of angels, and a lot of prayer to deal with my food issues and reach my goals. -2020

Other Information:
I'm very excited about starting my Master's program.

    emoticon Away in a Manger emoticon

    Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
    The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head.

    The stars in the sky looked down where he lay,
    The little Lord Jesus asleep in the hay.

    The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes,
    But little Lord Jesus no crying he makes.

    I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
    And stay by my cradle til morning is nigh.

    Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
    Close by me forever, and love me, I pray.

    Bless all the dear children in thy tender care,
    And take us to heaven, to live with Thee there.

    emoticon I wish you a very Merry Christmas my friend emoticon

    "The Marvelous Toy"

    When I was just a wee little lad full of health and joy,
    My father homeward came one night and gave to me a toy.
    A wonder to behold, it was, with many colors bright,
    And the moment I laid eyes on it it became my heart's delight.

    It went "zip" when it moved and "bop" when it stopped,
    And "whirr" when it stood still.
    I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will.

    The first time that I picked it up, I had a big surprise,
    For right on its bottom were two big buttons that,
    Looked like big green eyes.
    I first pushed one and then the other, and then I twisted its lid,
    And when I set it down again, this is what it did:


    It first marched left and then marched right,
    And then marched under a chair.
    And when l looked where it had gone, it wasn't even there.
    I started to sob and my daddy laughed, for he knew that I would find,
    When l turned around, my marvelous toy, chugging from behind.


    Well, the years have gone by too quickly, it seems,
    I have my own little boy.
    And yesterday I gave to him my marvelous little toy.
    His eyes nearly popped right out of his head,
    And he gave a squeal of glee.
    Neither one of us knows just what it is,
    But he loves it, just like me.

    It still goes "zip" when it moves, "bop" when it stops,
    And "whirr" when it stands still.
    I never knew just what it was,
    And I guess I never will.
    I never knew just what it was,
