Weight loss Journey

I have been on a weight loss journey since last september. As of today, July 5, 2017 I have lost 120lbs. What do i do? How did i lose all this weight and keep it off?

I started by walking daily, then i started eating clean, then i started adding weight training. Now I workout 5-7 days a week, walk/run 3-5 miles a day, eat clean which consists of no sugar, no white foods ( no potatoes, no bread, no pasta, no sugar) i basically eat chicken, fish and veggies and drink water all day.

the photo below: the first picture was taken of me last july 2016 ( a year ago) when i got to meet country music singer Easton Corbin and  the 2nd photo is of me 2 days ago July 3rd.



4th of July Weekend

Hoping everyone had a great 4th of July Weekend.  Ours was calm and great. Just hanging out with family for a cookout on the 4th and spending time together all weekend.

Now back to the grind of stay at home mom stuff. Getting my daughter ready to leave for freshman year at college in August.

Started a 365 photography challenge a few days ago, I slipped a couple days on taking photos and need to get back into the swing of the challenge today.  here is the latest photo challenge photos i took. the word of the day was “T”..


Tuesday’s with Sandra

Yesterday was a productive day at our household with my daughter and I going shopping for her dorm room stuff. Its amazing the price differences at various stores. Walmart ended up having the best prices over other bog box stores. I can see why so Walmart is so crowded all the time.

Yesterday I started a 365 photography challenge. I am hoping it will let my creative brain juices flow and learn something new daily while photographing various things. The challenge is great for a photographer to sharpen their skills and think outside of the box.

Yesterday’s word of the challenge was MACRO. So I went out in our yard and took Closeup shots of flowers, tree bark and a rock to see the different textures in each. I hope you will enjoy this challenge with my thru my lens.



Make it a great day!
