Treated Myself Today

September 12, 2021 11:08 pm

For those who may not know I began my loc journey in April of this year. Prior to committing to this journey I was so apprehensive and afraid.

I guess it was the overall thought of having locs in my hair and not being able to easily transition to a something else such as a wig.

Hands down starting this journey with my mom was one of the best decisions I ever made.

I ask myself why I never pushed myself harder to commit to this earlier. One thing is certain no matter when I did it. I am overjoyed that I did it because it’s helped me in so many ways.

Today I went to get a retwist and I felt good actually being in the shop and getting my hair done.

Yes I wrap my head up at night helps to maintain my locs looking fresh much longer

Invest In You After All Your Worth It………..

Fridays Dance Class

September 10, 2021 Time: 1:31 pm

Happy Friday and I pray that it’s a blessed one. Today was my Tahitian Dance Class.

Many of you know that this is a milestone for me. I’ve wanted to do this since I was young, but so much held me back.

There is a song which says “ I’m no longer a slave to fear for I am a child of God”

Today I fought through so much opposition and I made it. I completed today’s class and I even took pictures seven minutes into it take a look.

Walk Away From Negativity

September 9, 2021 11:54 pm

It’s silent I mean the only thing I hear are the rain sounds playing and my worship music which is currently paused.

I posted to my Facebook page yesterday and I explained how I’m in this season where I’m loving myself and making changes to better my health.

I was excited to share this because I know that there are others who need a lesson well learned in loving oneself and refusing to give up.

I was a bit shocked when I received a comment from someone whom recently followed me and likewise.

The comment basically stated that I was on my way either to the hospital or to my creator. I was also puzzled because the individual ended it with this ????!!!!!!!!!!

Okay I get it everyone is entitled to their opinion. I was not hurt but I did find myself puzzled. I don’t know you and you don’t know me. I’ve never cast judgment on you but okay.

Lesson learned some people in this world will never be happy no matter what. Even if your working on building your self up there are those whom will try to tear you down in hopes of stopping your God giving purpose.

That’s okay but don’t you give up just know that those type of people exist. Also hold tight to this promise from the Bible.

1 John 4:4King James Version

4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

Stay Blessed………….

Never Give Up……………..

I pushed I made It

September 8, 2021 11:02 am

I found myself finding every excuse in the book this morning. The more excuses I found the more my mind and body wouldn’t let me rest.

I got up, worshipped, prayed, and when all was done I went outside and pushed.

Now I’m certain that today will not be the last. The more I push myself the more discipline I gain.

Stay blessed………………

Cooked Something Different

September 6, 2021 9:40 pm

I’m sitting here watching a YouTube Video with my son. He’s recently found himself intrigued by lions.

I thought to share with you all this recipe I cooked in efforts of finding different foods which are healthier, tasty, and low in carbohydrates.

I went shopping the other day at this store which is close to me. It’s really a hidden gem that people love.

The products are typically marked very cheap. You’ll typically find the price written on the product with a black permanent marker.

Seafood, foreign food items, kosher products, etc. there’s so much to find here. Leading a healthier lifestyle this is one of my favorite spots.

These are some of the items I found on my find. A lot of restaurant owners, charities etc. shop here because of the types of food and the low pricing.

I managed to find Barley priced under a dollar a bag so I purchased two, Curry under a dollar (2), wheat thins under a dollar (2), plain Greek Yogurt a dollar (2), Greek Seasoning which I love under a dollar (2), Ground Round Plant Based Meat Substitute a dollar (2), and Split Pea Soup under a dollar (3).

I decided to use one bag of the Split Pea soup and cook it for roughly 40 minutes in five cups of water. After I took half a cup of Barely and the seasoning packet which came with the Split Pea Soup. I then cooked it an additional 20 mins on low heat turned it off and let it sit.

My end results I’ll show you again.

This soup is very tasty and for diabetes not too bad. Barely is actually good for people with diabetes because it’s low in carbs and can actually help to lower glucose levels. Split Peas are one of the lower carb index legumes so I personally love them.

No turning back………………

My Sons Decision

Date: September 1, 2021 Time: 9:15 am

It’s Wednesday morning and we’re getting ready to start homeschooling. My son has really been putting forth the effort to change.

Today he had a craving attack for fast food but thank God he was able to fight through it.

Instead when we got to my moms he wanted to put together a meal this is what he came up with.

Whole grain toast, topped with avocado, and two eggs. On the side he had some sausage he tells me it’s protein.

I’m very proud of how far we’ve come.

We can……….

We will………….

Never give up…………

Stay Blessed………………

Ready

Date: August 27, 2021 Time: 3:40 pm

I have always held a liking for learning Tahitian Dance. Growing up with a weight problem I guess I never thought it to be possible.

Now that I’m on this journey things look different. I’m excited in the direction it’s going. I’m even more so overjoyed knowing deep inside that someone is going to look at my journey and realize that it’s in them to do it.

So I mentioned that I signed up for a Tahitian Dance Class. I felt a longing to purchase something a bit more fitting for the occasion.

Being overweight I must admit that it was not easy to find my size. Thank God that I never gave up in my search and just when a small bit of me thought about it. The door opened and I found a shop located in America Samoa.

I placed my order which are the three Sarongs. I was overjoyed with the process as I received my order in under a week.

This is real I mean something I’ve wanted to do but held myself back out of fear. I’m here at this point where it’s real.

We Can……….

We Will……….

Stay Blessed……….

Date: August 26, 2021 Time: 12:12 pm

The day has been busy I’ve given God my first fruit. Got the house together, made a quick yet not so quick morning run to the grocery store.

I’ve managed to meal prep some Jerk Chicken which I cooked in my moms oven.

Ruth

Date: August 26, 2021 Time: 11:05 Am

I posted this to my Facebook page today and I wanted to share it

Ruth had the opportunity to return home in fact Naomi ordered her to do so. Opposed to going back Ruth stood firm and took an oath before Naomi

Ruth 1:16-17
King James Version
16 And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:

17 Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.

Copied from Bible Gateway

To walk away from what you know having a mustard seed of faith and going into the unknown to have faith like this

As a result of Ruth’s faith came favor and ultimately marriage to Boaz.

When we walk by faith and not by sight
When we walk by faith and not by sight

This message is for someone
Call those things as though they were

Stay Blessed
