I usually give a weekly recap but I was off from my daytime job on Friday and spent some time getting some things in order as well as attended some activities with my kids. So let’s recap:
So I am happy to report that after having my surgery I got a clean bill of health. I also found out that my blood has restored itself, is healthy and I am no longer anemic. Let me insert a praise break for that news right there.
I have STRUGGLED with anemia since I started getting a cycle. I have had so many complications and I never would have dreamed of this day. But it is here and I am over the moon excited. It’s a great feeling to have your health on point and it only took almost my whole life to get it there. I am grateful for that!
As many as you know I went to the Together Live 2017 conference and had a time. You can catch up on that blog as it’s already posted. We celebrated my mother in law and it was just somber. All of the emotions of the year before were so fresh. I personally remember the events and hold my kids close to me. We do NOT know our time and I would hate to not think I was giving them all I could everyday. I am super honored and humbled by my husband’s strength. I also had a great weekend with my husband. We were able to get out and enjoy some time together adulting. As promised I am sharing this year’s costume so you can see the difference in what a year looks like. We are still not finished yet. We are taking active roles in eating right, working out, and being intentional in our goals. So yes it takes work. I was over 250 in the second pic to my now of almost to my 150 goal. Thats a lot of weight to come off but I did it the right way, no short cuts.
This year’s costume:
Compared to last year’s costume:
Huge difference in weight for both of us and our overall health. We are out here trying to live our best lives.

What’s Coming Up for ToiTime?
I will be attending this weekend the Starry Night which is an organization that helps in raising money for kids with brain cancers. I would hope that no child would ever have to go through cancer of any for let alone brain cancer. So if you would like to donate to the walk, you can; Starry Night 2017
I will be adding other conferences and events as we get closer.
