As October brings a chill in the air, more pumpkin flavored everything, and my son’s 15th birthday, I find myself occupied with the following:


Drinking Cherry Pomegranate Crystal Light in my water and Hazelnut coffee with 2 pumps of sugar free Torani Brown Sugar Cinnamon syrup

Eating lots of fresh veggies, especially red, orange and yellow peppers and crunchy cucumbers

Reflecting on how I spent the last 20 years of my life in a spiral of disordered eating, anxiety and depression. I’ve come to terms with it all and have lost over 100 lbs by changing my diet this year

Wearing new sizes! I’m down 4 sizes and have had to recycle my wardrobe 4 times this year. I’m excited to put together new outfits and I feel confident in my appearance for the first time in 20 years.

Knowing I need to start dating again, and cringing at the thought of weeding through online dating sites – yuck.

Reading Power Your Happy by Lisa Sugar …. I’ve been waiting for this to come out. Whenever I read it, I get inspired to do more of the things I love.

Working in my Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith …. I bought it, but never ‘wrecked’ it….I felt like it was time to get to work on that

Singing with a wonderful group of women in a cabaret we are performing in November. I think I’ve found “my” song … “Home” from Wonderland.
