Which Way Now?

I've sat down in front of my computer so many times over the course of the past few months and as I tap out the same ol bullshit type posts with tears of frustration in my eyes I just end up hitting delete. Why you might ask, and if you're not asking then you should


She May Never Hear Me

Yesterday began like any other typical day in which you have to be somewhere at a specific time, however I had no idea what sort of turn yesterday would take and how it would change all of our lives forever. Yesterday was Harper's ABR Hearing Test, she failed her newborn hearing screening while she was


My Son Is On The Spectrum, It’s Not A Death Sentence

The other day I was chatting with a family friend who has known Zachary, my 7 1/2 year old son, for a good portion of Zac's life. Zac has attended parties at this person's home, with their family and friends who he is only familiar with a small portion of, they have attended Zac's Birthday

Monster Dash

Yesterday was probably a day that will live on in my memory for a long time, forever actually. I have said many times before that growing up I was never a runner. I had every excuse in the book to get out of running, and I continued evolving those excuses well into adulthood. I started

Running for a Cause

Last weekend I ran one of the largest foot races EVER, and I don't mean just for me I mean it's one of the largest foot races participant wise, the CVS Caremark Downtown 5K in Providence! This race boasted over 8,000 runners and I couldn't have been happier to have run it as part of

I have been on this journey for almost 3 years now and I've been doing Girl Gone Healthy for 2 years, it's been joyful, heartbreaking, frustrating, overwhelming, it's made me angry, it's made me happy, on some days it's the only thing that makes me feel like I was put on Earth to do something

It’s Not A Diet

As I continue to meet people and share my weight loss story I hear the same question every single time...."what diet did you use?" That's just it I didn't use any diet, and that's because diets don't work....LIFE STYLE CHANGE is what works. I've done Weight Watchers, South beach, Atkins, Cabbage Soup, Apple Cider Vinegar....you


The other night I was really craving Mexican food.....ok what's new I'm always craving Mexican food LOL. Thank goodness I married someone who loves it as much as I do or I wouldn't be allowed in the kitchen ;). I was tired of the same ol taco burrito song and dance and came up with

Love Affair

Good WEEKEND to you friends!!! I'd like to start out with a confession. As many of you know I have never been shy about stating my vile hatred for the elliptical machine. I find it boring and it makes my hips hurt...yea you like that excuse? Even GGH makes excuses sometimes LOL. ANYWAY, for the past week and

Wrap It Up

Greetings! ** Honesty Moment** If you Follow me on Twitter then you know I was making lemon blueberry cookies last night to bring to Zac's school this morning. Let's just say I wont be sharing that recipe quite yet....major baking fail. But I did manage to score with dinner! Spicy Chicken and Black Bean Wraps: You'll


Tonight's post is dedicated to my wonderful, amazing, beautiful son Zachary. I hope you will allow me to indulge, and for any first time visitors maybe this post will spark a kinship!! The Autism Project 8th Annual Imagine Walk  Zachary's recent diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder wasn't really a surprise to our family, but a shock


Tonight's Empowerment topic is Education. It's important to be educated when making decisions. For example, you wouldn't just go to a car dealership and point to a car and say "I'll take it!" Chances are you'd read up on different makes and models, gas mileage comparisons, cost of insurance, safety recalls, etc. So why as

Back To Reality…

Thank goodness I had such a great night's sleep and little man decided to sleep until 8:30am this morning because it was back to reality. I started the morning off running errands and then coming home to clean and do laundry from our trip. Pretty boring but it has to be done! In between laundry
