Clean Eating…..and….. go!


I wrote this back in May, but there was some negative feedback to all my Instagram photos. I’ll try to keep the blog updated on my fitness journey, and for personal accountability, I’m making this public. So, in an act of bravery….here it goes:
I’m tired of being fat, tired, and unhappy. Who’s with me? Raise your flabby arms high! Yes, you. I see your hand! Let’s be even more honest. I weighed before I started this. 220lbs. 5’4″. Size 12-14. Yikes. Not good at all. Something has to change. I can’t keep this up, especially if I want to have kids some day!!!
(Also, shout out to my dear husband graciously agreed to do this with me since it’s easier to cook for two people. He’s the best, right? ūüėė)

So, without further delay, here’s what I propose to do: had a two-week “Clean Eating” challenge. Click to see:Clean Eating Link.

Update…2.0 Life, Love, Tattoos.


Hello, forgotten blog world.  Thanks to Seester for finding it again and inspiring me to post again!

I’ve been married for a year! Wow. ¬†I’m an English teacher now, and work at Sylvan. ¬†Life is good. ¬†It’s flown by so quickly, it’s hard to sum it up in one little blog post without making people yawn or gag. HA! ¬† Suffice it to say, both my husband and I have learned so much about life and love and how to live with each other. ¬†It’s hard to be married, but definitely worth it. I’ve been incredibly blessed.

Let’s talk about something controversial, shall we? Read the rest of this entry

“Hi, how are you?”

¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† “Fine, how are you?”

Are we really?


Can we say so?

Wedding Bells and Insurance


Seems I have forgotten about my blog….

I have now finished my course work for the Alternative¬†Teaching Certification and passed the content exam. I’ll take the pedagogy exam on January 28, then look for an internship starting in August.¬† The reason for waiting until August is because a number of things have happened since my last blog!

Happy 4th of July/Independence Day!


Last 4th of July I was in Bangkok, Thailand spending a ridiculous amount of money to feel happy with other Americans. ¬†This year is so much better. I’m back with my family and getting to spend the day with my boyfriend and his family helping with a mini-Carnaval for the kiddos of the Clifton community. ¬† ¬† Read the rest of this entry



Well, here I am, a new blog for life post-BKK.  I still have that one, just found at  This one will be my regular stuff now.

I guess I should update with this: ¬†I’m back in America. ¬†The last months in Thailand were fun and busy, and I’m so glad to be home. ¬†I got a part-time job at Victoria’s Secret right away and have spent the last months working as the Assistant Costumer for the Waco Civic Theatre’s production of My Fair Lady, all the while looking for a full-time job. ¬†I’ve had several interviews and every one of them asked “Why don’t you teach? You seem to have a lot of experience in academia, and I guess you enjoy it….” Always followed by an almost audible “Dot dot dot” leaving me lost for words. ¬†“Why don’t I teach?” I thought. ¬† Read the rest of this entry
