My Weight Loss Struggle is Real | Week One

My Weight Loss: Week 1

Week 1:

First of all I would like to tell everyone thank you for the kind words that I received by text, Facebook or phone.


I was hungry this week and I didn’t deprive myself.  I was very good with my portions and felt like I did well.  I have completely stopped all my soda intake.  Mostly drinking water and some sweet tea, lightly sweetened.  I have now been joined in this life change by my husband and my daughter.  They both have made changes this week.  I am so proud of my daughter for her strength this week and watching her choices of food change.  We will all be healthier in the end.

Bringing New Life to an Old Piece

Bringing new Life to an Old Piece

Bringing new life to an old piece is always an inspiring thing to do.  I have had these planters since 2006.  I inherited them from my grandmother and she has had them as long as I can remember.  I actually can not remember her not having them.  My grandmother or as I called her MawMaw, was all about her flowers and her yard.  She was constantly working and planting something.  These concrete planters were always filled with the current seasonal flower.  Sadly to say, as you will see in the pictures below I have not taken good care of them.  I don’t think I have had any flowers in them since I inherited them.  I know, shame on me.  We have moved numerous times and inexcusably have neglected them, until now.

I am bringing new life to an old piece.  I have wanted to paint the planters for some time.  My husband and I were in Lowes one day and I decided to go and look at the paint to see what they might have to paint concrete.  Blessing’s were in store unbeknownced to me.  There it was a 75% off, a  deal on “Olympic Rescue It, Light Restoration” concrete paint, and they would even tint to my liking.  Purchase I did, a brown color that would match our house and excited I was.

The entire time we were painting these I thought about my MawMaw.  I miss her so much, she taught me a lot.  I still think about her almost on a daily basis.  This was a good time to reflect and laugh about her quirky ways.  I think she would be happy with the way they turned out.  She would probably say “Why didn’t I do that sooner?”.
