So What's Next?

My entire lil' family has been ill this week(but not Cason if you ask him because MEN don't get sick). It appears that we are finally turning the corner towards the Sunshine of health despite the fact that it is determined to rain ALL weekend here in our dreamy little town.

I am parked in my pink chair covered up in my father's favorite native american blanket and sipping on some hot coffee from the freaking AWESOME custom mug my friend Tres had made for me. #myfriendsareROCKSTARS
My mind is on the next page of my story. I am no longer a waitress. I've spent almost half my life waitressing and I tell you I've met amazing people, heard the best stories AND the love of my life found me while I was waitressin' away a Sunday afternoon. I built my life doing so. Now I find myself smack dab in the middle of my dreams coming true(happy dance) and searching for the next step on my journey.

What will I become now? An artist? A gluten/sugar free at home chef? A fitness and yoga practitioner? Well y'all- for now I can say for sure that my house is clean, Cason and Gamer Boy are taken care of quite well and I am open to rocking ALL of the ABOVE :) xoxo- The GFG

Starting Over

It's been a transitional nine weeks for our household to say the LEAST. Cason changed jobs and thanks to that and his support I will be a one job woman at the end of February. I allowed the stress of all this change to shift my focus off my plan and managed to gain a few pounds and weathered a few trips to food induced Spaztazia. #whenwillilearn?

Being allergic/intolerant to food is a full time JOB with NO vacations or free passes. One slip and it's misery and a struggle to get back to sanity. My motto is 'be persistent, NOT perfect'. However, perfect is what it feels like I have to be most days. Today I am back in the land of the living and planning my full transition back into functional. #hooray!

So for a full update on this winding, pot hole, lightning sand trap filled journey- I am 13 pounds down with 27 more to go and I am still hopeful to land my goal by June 1st. As for now..I will just get through TODAY. xoxo- The GFG
