Quickest. Breakfast. Ever!!

Good morning, Today’s breakfast is something simple I just came up with. I know that overnight oats exist…and I’ll never eat them. But, I do love me some good cereal. So that’s what I ate. And a banana. And drank some orange juice, too! I decided to use 2 Aldi cereals that I have mixed together: What I did was simple: I used 2 mason jars. I put the mixed cereal in one of the mason jars with some almond milk (I stopped drinking milk and eating any animal based products back in 2013) and the oj in the other….

Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year family! I decided that I’m going to give this blog one more chance before I give up. So, I’m back…its’ been 6 months and I can’t believe it. So much has been going on, but at the same time, nothing has been happening. I don’t know how that even happens, lol! Just to give an update, I decided to go full vegan today! My son is still homeschooling. I’m not working right now…long story…but had to get out of there before I went elsewhere!! Still single, lol! But one thing is for sure, I am definitely looking…

He’s Becoming A Liar, And I’m Already Tired Of It

Listen, let me be clear, upfront, and honest first: I do love my son; however, he’s at that age where he’s lying just to do so…and not about anything that means anything. The crazy thing is, there’s no need for it. Is there someplace special where kids to go to learn how to lie? Or to learn why? Or to learn hot to deflect the truth? Recently, of all things, food has been disappearing. For instance, I came home last night and my vegan sugar cookies were gone. I don’t think you understand just how much I was looking forward…

Lessons From A Third Grade Dropout

I was first introduced to this book through Facebook. You know how when you log in on the site and scroll your timeline, there are a million videos to watch? Well, this one caught my attention when it started playing. He was standing at the podium, asked to give the commencement speech at a graduating class in Texas. What he said in those few moments of the video caught my attention. I sat there and watched the entire video: puzzled, emotional, and captivated all in one. I knew I had to get the book. In a week’s time, I would…

A Small Scale Victory!

I’ve figured out that even with life, work, homeschooling (of course off for the summer), short road trips, etc, that everything has a place in life. I decided that I’m going to get back into trying to lose weight. This time, I think it’s hitting home that I need to stick with it. As of July 1st, I’m committing myself to making my life better!! I’m not doing anything too drastic like cutting out everything that I normally eat, but then I am at the same time. I decided back in January that I was going to Go Vegan! Yes,…

Returning To This Weight Loss Challenge

I’ve known and felt in my body for quite some time now that I’ve needed to get back to working out. It always starts out great, then BOOM, something simple and stupid derails my progress. It could be anything from work (related anything), not having enough money to try and eat as healthy as possible (because no one can force me to believe that it’s cheap, it ain’t), not having clean clothes (even though I have a W/D and keep detergent stocked), trying to get family on board, etc. Working outside is free, so why the excuses? I don’t know!!…
