8 Weeks To A Swimsuit

In March of 2020, after our governor announced a “Stay At Home” order because of Covid-19, I signed up with a local trainer who was offering an online workout program live on Facebook. I figured I could support a small business and maybe this would help me lose the weight that I had been carrying for years.

The end result was me discovering parts of myself that I never knew existed even though they were always present. As of this moment I have lost nearly 50 lbs and I have never felt or looked better. My days are now filled with at least 1-2 workouts, healthy meals and encouraging others that if I can lose the weight, you can too.

Happy Thanksgiving

Today we are thankful for so much. 🙏🏾

Our life.
Our health.
Sufficiency.
Another day.
The selflessness of others.
The kindness of others.

Today we pray for so many who

Are in the hospital.
Are mourning the loss of loved ones.
Are essential workers.
Are missing the community of church and family.
Are brokenhearted.

Today we know that

We should have an attitude of gratitude.
That if we look back over our lives and think things over,
God has always provided.
If we can’t thank Him for this, we can thank Him for that.
In all things give thanks.

#HeSpoilsMe eBook

This project has been a true labor of love. I honestly thought that it would have been on sale by now. Instead, I’ve found growth in the struggle to bring it to life. What I learned in this particular struggle is to stay with it, even when I was frustrated, even when I felt clueless and even when I was ready to give up. However, I knew that I could not move on to the next project until this one was completed.

Between 2009 and 2016, I self-published 3 books; Ghetto Chick, Infused and #hespoilsme. They have sat in my home and on my laptop for years. This year I made it a goal to create covers for all them and to get them on sale on Amazon.

It was all a dream. Now that dream is a near reality as I have completed the creation of the eBook.

My mommy tells me often, that I’ve always been a dreamer. However, I never dreamed that I would be so immersed in my creativity to the point that it pulls at me to completion. Once I’m done, I am not only proud of my work, I also feel as if energy has left my body. When I finished this project last night and sent it to the printer I was so tired that I fell asleep completely dressed.

So, when will this eBook be for sale? I have no idea. I am picking up the copy today. I need to sit with it and love on it in its entirety before I completely release it to the world. This book is different for me. It details a romantic encounter after my divorce and another failed relationship. I found love. It was inconvenient and beautiful. It was loving. It was sensual. It was out of comfort zone, kinda like creating this ebook.

Hmmm…..

More information soon to come.
