It's been a weird and crazy weekend.  I got the opportunity to go meet a Roller Derby team this weekend.  I so want to join the team....I'm working on that.

It's been one of those weekends where they are like a dream but you know that all the stuff that happened really did happen.  I saw my friend at the bar where I went to see the Roller Derby team that I hadn't seen in a long time.  It was great to see her but I felt bad that I didn't get to talk to her for very long.  The band was great and I wanted to dance, too bad my hubbie didn't go with me.  He decided to go out with his friends.  Next time.

I did a lot of meditation this weekend.  Reflecting on a few things that I wish I had answers to.  Things that I feel I could work on, things I want to change.

I hope you all had a great weekend.

Weight Loss

Everyone knows that it's hard to get motivated to lose weight.  I have been there, done that!! This time though I feel different about it.  This time it's ALL ABOUT ME!  I decided that I'm not going to lose weight for anybody else but me!

I have tried to lose 40lbs BECAUSE my husband wants me to "look better", BECAUSE I hate to look in the mirror, BECAUSE my in-laws keep telling me how FAT I look, BECAUSE, BECAUSE, BECAUSE.

Well I decided that I was going to do this for ME this time.

My mom was diagnosed with Colitis and as a result of her medicine she was also diagnosed with diabetes.
I am on a thyroid medicine; I went to a specialist last year because I was diagnosed with having a Thyroid goiter.  I'm curious and wanted to see what my doctor was talking about.  So I called upon the internet and GOOGLE to see what this was all about. To my SURPRISE.....I about fell off my chair! OMG how ugly is that!!  Well when I saw this specialist they go through all of the routine questions. Do you have any type of blah, blah, blah...

She asked me if there was a history of diabetes and I told her my mom was recently diagnosed with having diabetes but it was because of the medication she was on, well that didn't stop her from telling me that I needed to lose weight because I was not prone to get diabetes because of my mom having it.  I was a bit confused and told her even if it was due to the medication she was on?  She said yes..

Well I have to go back to see her next month and I want her to see that I have made an improvement with my weight.  There have been a lot of things that happened that I won't get into right now that prevented me from keeping on track with my diet and exercise but I am moving forward and will keep updating my progress.

Until then have a great day, by the way ITS SNOWING!!  WWWAAAAA!!

Feliz Cumpleanos Abraham!!

It was 15 years ago today that I was BLESSED with my son Abraham.  He has been such a great little boy.  He has grown up to be a spectacular young man.  I love him so much.

A little about Abraham.  He was born March 23, 1996, weighed 7lb. 2oz. and was 19 1/2 inches long.
He always likes to help and lend a hand.  He loves to learn new things.  He loves to cook, loves cheesecake, loves to read and LOVES the guitar and loves his family.

He studies hard and keeps his grade up.  What more could a mom ask for right?  I enjoy listening to him play his guitar.  It's so soothing to me.  I especially love it when he makes up his own songs and asks for my opinion. I think my son is headed for great things in his life, in fact I know he is.

I wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday Mijo.  I love you!!

It's Moving Day!!

I have worked for the City for 6 years now.  In those 6 years I have been in the basement.  I have been deprived of the sun.  I love coming to work; I enjoy my job a lot actually but the only thing I don't enjoy is not having a window.  Not knowing if it's sunny, rainy, snowy, windy??? Nothing!!  The only joy I get is that I have pandora on my computer and I can listen to music.  I love music, it makes my day no matter what I'm doing!

Tomorrow is our "official moving day" and we WILL HAVE A WINDOW!! I am so excited for this because now I can see how the weather is like.  I will be able to get off work at 2pm and look out the window to see what I will need for my walk out to my car.

I am very excited about this!  VERY!!


Nuclear Radiation Rain?

First of all I hope you all had a great weekend!  With that said; my husband came home on Friday and let us in on what he had heard on the news.  He said that all the Nuclear Radiation stuff that was in Japan would be heading our way soon.  Of course I was a little confused.  He explained that some of the radiation had gotten into the clouds and was going to be falling in the form of rain.  I turned to my kids and said "don't worry, things will be ok." Just as I was saying this my daughter began to cry, UNCONTROLLABLY, she started saying how she didn't want to be outside and didn't want to die early, she didn't want to get cancer....etc.  How do you calm down a girl who is totally nervous about this whole thing.

My husband throughout this has this grin on his face.  I just looked at him and shook my head, I hugged her and gave her my little pink cross necklace and told her that it would keep her safe.  She felt a lot better after that.

I was really upset with my husband and told him that he needed to watch what he said because our little Lala is a big worry wort and I don't want her to get an ulcer at such an early age.  He did talk to Lala and said that he was sorry to worry her and told her that she didn't have to worry about that.

The things our kids worry about......

Friends are a Blessing

Last night I had Jackie and Kaylee over to make tortillas.  I am greatful that I have friends that want to come over and spend time with me and my family. 

I remember when I was young we would always go over to cousins houses almost every day! We would go so that my mom and dad could catch up on the latest and greatest meanwhile all the cousins would play, fight, and make up.  It was so great! 

It seems that these days we are just so busy with work, school, kids, life itself that we just don't take the time to slow down and have a social life.  

I think friends are important to have in life.  Keep them close; almost as close as family.   :)

With that said.........I LOVE ALL MY FRIENDS! Thanks for being a part of my life and thanks for loving me for ME!! 

This video is something I would totally do.........
