Oh I just can’t wait to be Queen….or at least try

The first “step” in my journey to better health-other than completely adjusting my diet- was signing up for my first ever 5k challenge. Of course….in my usual style…it’s go big or go home. The first 5k challenge is actually THREE 5ks that I will complete between June and August of this year. Since this isContinue reading “Oh I just can’t wait to be Queen….or at least try”

Change is Coming

https://youtu.be/fKAh-Ln_hgQ I’ve been overweight for as long as I can remember. My Mom tells me stories of how when I was really little, she could barely find underwear to fit me because it was all too big. Unfortunately, at nearly 46 years old, I’ve got the opposite problem. I’m tired of struggling to find clothesContinue reading “Change is Coming”

Sunday Dinner – Grilled Beef Roast and Lemon Rosemary potatoes

My Second Video is Live!

I’ve been a makeup “junkie” for as long as I can remember. One of my favorite toys as a child was the Barbie “Bust” with hair you could style and fake makeup you could put on her over and over and over again. I would say my general makeup “style” is classic, however, once aContinue reading “My Second Video is Live!”
