It Could Be You……

Hello Beauties!   It’s 4 a.m. and Im awake! My daughter woke me up….because she had an “accident” the bed. She is 5 years old and she typically doesnt have accidents, but when she does, I usually get upset.

My logic is that maybe if she sees my disapproval about it, then maybe she will try hard to just get up. Sometimes kids forget and you have to limit how much they drink before bed. I can say that I have become very accustomed to not having to get up and change diapers, or bed sheets any longer….so long are those days! But, no…. It happens. I actually caught myself this morning….I told her what she needed to do since SHE wet the bed…take the sheets off and change her clothes….Of course she was unable to do it. I am Mom…and she is accustommed to me doing the dirty work :)

After I was done washing her sheets, God spoke to me softly when i got back in my bed and I realized…. 1. This could be me in my Silver years 2. Just help her because you love her…dont make her ashamed of what she has done. can you imagine being old in adult diapers while having your children have to change you just for them to scold you and say, “Didnt i tell you not to pee on yourself, Mom?” How sad and ashamed you would feel. Im not going to do that to her again and Im going to apologize to her when she wakes up in the morning…because it as just an “accident” and it could be me….

These are the moments that help me the most while on this Journey to being the best mom…EVER! Sometimes you need reminding how much of a child you are in your adult life. You were once ther too…wetting the bed..:) Lesson Learned …..

Peace and Blessings,

This had me thinking as well….. Enoy the poem…I got it from my Facebook timeline…

“My dear girl, the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If when we talk, I repeat the same thing a thousand times, don’t interrupt to say: “You said the same thing a minute ago”… Just listen, please. Try to remember the times when you were little and I would read the same story night after night until you would fall asleep. When I don’t want to take a bath, don’t be mad and don’t embarrass me. Remember when I had to run after you making excuses and trying to get you to take a shower when you were just a girl? When you see how ignorant I am when it comes to new technology, give me the time to learn and don’t look at me that way … remember, honey, I patiently taught you how to do many things like eating appropriately, getting dressed, combing your hair and dealing with life’s issues every day… the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If I occasionally lose track of what we’re talking about, give me the time to remember, and if I can’t, don’t be nervous, impatient or arrogant. Just know in your heart that the most important thing for me is to be with you. And when my old, tired legs don’t let me move as quickly as before, give me your hand the same way that I offered mine to you when you first walked. When those days come, don’t feel sad… just be with me, and understand me while I get to the end of my life with love. I’ll cherish and thank you for the gift of time and joy we shared. With a big smile and the huge love I’ve always had for you, I just want to say, I love you … my darling daughter.” Original text in Spanish and photo by Guillermo Peña.

Do As I Say…and As I Do!! :)

Hello Beauties!

A comment that I put on my last post inspired me to write this one…


Kids are so impressionable at any age, but truly when they are under ten year old, in my opinion. They are so observant and listen closely to your every word…even when you think they are not….! I know you have faked sleep once, or twice when your parents, or parents friend were having a “grown folks conversation”…..Ummmm hummmm. :) We all did it…we were all inquisitive….and still really are… For example…there is an accident pulled over to the median. What do we all naturally do? We stare for as long as our wheel and brakes will allow us to AND we may even roll down the window. So, we all want to know something.

I grew up in the 80-90’s, so McDonald’s and Burger King were a treat..we didn’t eat there everyday. In 2015, its far from a treat. It is a death sentence by choice. Sarcastically speaking, I’m unsure if the salad is even healthy. If you choose to partake in it, eat it in so much moderation that you’re barely eating it at all! My family cooked at home and I cant say that I always wanted it, but if I got hungry enough, then it was eaten. Not many people are cooking at home and when they shop for groceries, they head for the middle aisles…where are the sugary, gooey treats are…Then you have parents who are just getting off work and are tired..I get it. *raises hand* I am too. I have alarms set…here is my schedule:

5:30 a.m. Wake up. Get work out clothes on and kids clothes on

6 a.m. Feed the kids

6:25 a.m. Heading to daycare * thank God they are open this early*

6:35 a.m. Drive to the park

6:45 a.m. MaymyRun and Pandora…locked and loaded

7:30 a.m. 2 miles around park….maybe step runs once or twice..Done.

7:45 a.m. Doing either arm exercise, tummy, or back workouts

8:15 a.m. Getting ready for work

6:45 p.m. Working out with the kids at the park again


I’m becoming disciplined because you wouldn’t get me up that early to save your own life :) Now, I can! :)

You have to re-route your food choices. Only shop for foods on the outside areas. Fruits/Veggie section will ALWAYS be my first place to go. Then, Meat section…followed by Dairy area. Until i learn how to make my own sauces, etc..that’s when i will stay off those aisles. My kids watch me…they see what kind of fruits we ingest…they even watch my exercise…I make it so important that it becomes important to them. It so good for me because I ask random people running up the stairs if they want to race, so it becomes fun for everyone. I don’t care if i look foolish…its about living! Sometimes i give them kid version of being healthy and then some days I give them NC-17 version…For example: “If you eat fast food all the time, you will become over weight…like me…and you will be unhappy…like me…and you will have a plethora of diseases attached to you…UNLESS you make the CHOICE to eat better”. I explain, that mean eating fresh fruits and vegetables, trying green smoothies, sticking to a strict carb intake. I’m learning that food tastes good, but Im not going to scarf down so much that I’m sick because I’m choosing to binge eat. And you know…that is actually a disorder.

Parents: Set great examples…it costs less than you think to eat healthy… You can get out of Walmart with pineapples, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, kale, spinach, and even tomatoes…with about $25-30. That is the same amount that you would spend on one meal full of junk. Do better so our kids can do better. Diabetes is real…and I have it. I don’t want my kids to have it and deal with what I’m putting myself through when I CHOOSE to binge eat. I had a blood sugar at 300-400…my body is use to, but I’m damaging organs and nerves in the process. In this past week alone, I have managed to get my blood sugar down to 92- 115. I’m amazed and i rechecked….because i though the meter was lying…* as if it can talk back*.

Were going to do this together…..No one gets left behind!!

I’m challenging everyone to walk 2 miles a day in the park for at least 3 days. Eat 2 more vegetables and fruits in replace of a starch like mashed potatoes, or pasta. :)

I believe in you :)

Peace and Blessings,

Health Journey 2015

Hello Love’s!

Its mid-summer and I am….back at on this health journey once again-because i just cant seem to get it right….or get all these love jiggles tight. ;)

What prompted me to come out of stuffing whatever food I pleased down my throat was when i got sick with Strep unknowingly….I had a fever and felt different….decided i would eat something really quick on my lunch break. Guess where i decided to go….? McDonalds, of course! Who doesnt love the good ‘ole $1 menu until payday rolls around again!?! I did- until i threw it up that night. I made the choice to not go back to McDonald’s unless its for water. My lesson was that I had to get Strep just to have a wake up call about my health…. Oh and my blood sugar was spiralling so far out of control.

I had a endocrinologist appointment within the next few days…and was basically given to straight….I needed to make the necessary changes to stay alive- not ust for me…but for my ‘lovies as well :)  We went over some new medications that could help me lose weight while i diet and exercise. I can tell you now….it definitely suppressed my appetite. My blood sugars have been its lowest ever. I dont look at food the same…it has too many effects that complicate my life if i choose to eat too much of the food or the wrong foods.

Long story in short….I have been exercising by walking at least 2 miles once to twice a day now for 1 month and counting….( I have lacked these past few days because my hamstring has been sore). I even run the stairs…all 8 of them in the park–sometimes. :) I plan to powerwalk in a 5K….I dont care how long it takes :)

My goals is to lose weight, but Im not rushing it and im not setting myself of failure either….it took about 5-10 year and 2 kids to put this 50lbs on….and Im going to be patient with my body to allow it to come off.

If youre just starting out or doing it over, no worries were going to get it right together this time! :)

My dream body…she looks very toned.

Envision Your Vision Board

Hello Beauties!

It’s been a while….but I’m back…again :)

Of course, I hope that all of you have thought deeply about what you wanted out of life before you expire, yes?

This 2015, I began to think about the places I wanted to visit, live, vacation, and what debt I wanted to come to a Zero balance! It is so easy to envision all the things you want to come to past by simply using the “Law of Attraction”, praying, and envisioning. The key is to wake up looking at the photos beliveing that you WILL do these things very soon! I even added, as you can see, photos of my family attach to where were going-because were going. :) I have always wanted to share those travel experience with my two lovies’ :), so were definitely making it a priority to have passport by late 2015 or early 2016. I cant wait until we add stamps! * jumps up and down on bed*

I encompassed various topics in mine such as: Love & Marriage/Wedding, Local Travel, Finances/Tithing, Career, Health, Car/Home, Helping People, and International Travel.

In Love/Marriage…I definitely want to be happliy married and also to share travel experiences, too. He must not be boring…. Wedding…simple beach wedding…with the lots of orchids and hibiscus’s…

In Local Travel… places that we could go every few months to adventure off to….. Standing in the middle of Times Square in NYC…. Disney Cruise to the Bahamas…Disney Animal Kingdom Vacay’ for my lovies… :)


Financing/Tithing….Without tithing, personally for me, I cant tell you what I would have done…..I would love to be debt free…. without student loan debt….I want to be the lender and not the borrower, as my bestie would say :)

Career…..this is a tough one…I had my life planned out in 5th grade….I had hopes to be  nurse or vet…the best things about that i have many decades to make this dream happen…I love the feeling of being needed and helping others…its a satisfaction that feels so good. I would love to make money blogging, do speaking engagements about career coaching, being a foster child, and a single mother to encourage others.

Car/Home…yes….ahhhhh… I will have 4 bedroom home and 2 car garage.

Helping People….I would love to focus on the homeless….I will do basic necessities bags…and help them find jobs, have clean clothes, and housing.

International Travel….I have always had a strong desire to visit Egypt…its something about the pyramids that attract me so…. I love the Northern Lights in Alaska as well….. Or go on a Safari ride with my kids in other parts of Africa…or how about Paris *hugs self* so much love :)

Always Remember………

You have to speak and believe these things you desire into existence. “I will have the money to pay off every debt”, ” I will have all the money necessary to travel every place I desire”, and “I will have the love that is destined for me to have”. It doesnt stop there…..You have to constantly remind yourself and meditate on what you want.


Please work on your vision board and reply with a photo of what you have been working on! :)11796346_910817947701_620909736111648834_n

DIY FOOD!! Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

Hello Beauties!

I wanted to share this cute kids friendly recipe idea with you all today! I recently made a Pepperoni Pizza Puff for my babies! :)

I bought Grands biscuits, pizza sauce, shredded cheese, pepperoni, and light cooking spray.

First, spray your cupcake pan with cooking spray. Second, take your biscuit dough and flatten and cup it, so that it will the other ingredients. Third, add pizza sauce and cheese. Then, add pepperoni and even more cheese.. I love cheese, don’t you? :)

Voila! You have made a cheaper version of a pizza and its easier for kids to hold…. let them help if you like!

Send me your pizza puff picture below :)

Peace & Blessings,

Super gooey cheese :-P


My Love Patches… Part 3!

Hello Beauties!!

Hope you all have been well since I have last posted!

I wanted to do an update post of my love patches aka Alopecia Areata today. It has grown so much since my last update last year. I have little sprouts and a even a baby curl! Who would have thunk it?!? I am continuously using my Rogaine for Women, steroid shots from my dermatologist, Jamaican Black Castor Oil,  using the Vitamin E capsules(… make a small incision and apply it to the spot..i use 2 capsules per spot), and even praying over my spots.

In February, I actually got a Ion brand hair dye applied to my hair as well(Ion black cherry). I don’t see any damage, so if it works for you- even with Alopecia Areata, go ahead and get a summer color going for yourself! My stylist was able to even trim my new growth spots, so that it could grow even more.

So, I’m really happy and 80% stress free nowadays. Stress was the key for me that I believe initially had my hair falling out. I do my best now to take deep breaths, rethink how I’m going to handle the situation moving forward, and pray.

Here are some Before and Current pictures!
