Is it weird I get excited over a trash bin? 😂🤣 #happiness upon #driving up! #dumpster means #work and #demolition and #rehab and everything else involved with a #renovation / #remodel #singlemom #buildingafosterhome ❤️#wedointhisthang

Today is #demolition day! I received a early morning text with the surprising yet #fantastic #news ! It’s truly a #happyfriday and I’m #blessed ! I’m not sure what my house will look like when I arrive #home but I’m expecting a ton of #dust and many other good things to come! ❤️ It’s happening again! I’m almost 1 year into owning this home and 6 months past completion date! I can’t thank these #contractors enough! More pics to come and videos will be #posted on my @youtube page and @facebook page! #excited #singlemom #buildingafosterhome

Genetics definitely play a part in the way we look and body type. My #sister @bodaciousdan sent the sisters the meme above. Truly, I look at the meme and can’t stop #laughing. Now look at all 3 ladies. All of us have different mothers and ate differently. Yet... we’re all stocky #women I can workout as much as I want, but I’m guessing I’ll never be “skinny” unless I literally start doing drugs or something. Be happy with your #bodytype , YOUR image is you! Although I say I want to be “skinny,” I really want to be “MY” #skinny . I want to be a healthy me. A woman who feels whole in her skin. #healthylifestyle #weightloss #gym @nysc @rachellemoser #ilovemysisters #singlemom #buildingafosterhome #goodmorning

Ugh... it’s “THAT” mirror. The one where I finally saw ALL the flaws! Every bulge and crease. The reason why I’m now 4 days in with max 5.5 hrs of sleep a night and not giving up! Sadly, I know THIS #mirror isn’t lying to me. #weightloss #gym #selfie #ihatethegym #scaryphoto I only have room to lose! #betterment #singlemom #buildingafosterhome #imdoingthis

It was a very #goodmorning @nysc I had a chance to #payitforward to Andra (spelling might be incorrect) by giving her a smile and @starbucks #giftcard (Sorry, it’s not a bed to sleep in). I hope she continues to share her #smiles and enjoys #cheerleading tonight at @monroecollege Thank you Andra for taking the time this morning to make my day! Good luck tonight. #singlemom #buildingafosterhome

#goodmorning So yesterday, this happened! I sat at a weight machine and “accidentally” got a real good look at myself in the #mirror . I mean, I’m already taking the first step which is being at the #gym , but seeing myself for what I am (fully clothed) was a #disappointment ! #imnotgivingup It’s 5:30 am and I’ll be jumping in my #mommobile shortly to get my son to school and then I’ll #commute to the gym. Day 4 people! #hereigo #workingmom #singlemom #buildingafosterhome

#regram @stopthemigraines #kindness and no #judgement ! It’s what Ive been preaching all day! #tuesdaymotivation #singlemom #buildingafosterhome

Went to the #gym this morning @nysc . The front desk person still didn’t seem very happy. I said, “What can I do to make your day better?” Her response, “Bring me a bed.” Clearly, that’s creepy and not possible and she’d likely get into trouble if I really did bring her a bed. Instead, I took her bed comment as being tired. Maybe she’s not grumpy, she’s just exhausted? I made sure she’s there #tomorrow and I’ll be giving her the #gift of a @starbucks card. Hopefully she’ll #payitforward with a #smile 😃 ☕️ Hopefully this will make the gym a little bit of a better place to be. Tomorrow is day 4! Let’s pray my #son gets up in time where my #commute is only an hour and I can get at least a 60 minute #workout in. #workingmom #kindness #singlemom #weightloss #buildingafosterhome

#goodmorning and #happytuesday Did you see my #video last night? I’m making the #decision to become a better #me . I have too much to live for and #goals through the roof (no pun intended). If I’m not over doing it, then it’s being under done! Make your decision! Whatever it may be, you have room to change for the better! You just need to have the desire and find what pushes you!

I’m done being MY #fat Check out my video on YouTube @thereallifeme or my Facebook page @thereallifeme Why my @fitbit shows I worked out 24 of my 28 mins is unknown. Trust me when I say I know I put in a full 28 mins because that’s all I had today. #pushyourself #weightloss #imdone #singlemom #buildingafosterhome

#yes #mondaymotivation After sitting in almost 2 hours of #traffic I had plenty of time to talk myself out of a #30minworkout ! I mean, was it worth it? My body was telling me no. My #brain likes to push and it said YES! #doit and #dontgiveup I walked into @nysc and again, the front desk lady wasn’t cheerful. Not ever after I said, #goodmorning which is frustrating because I didn’t want to be there either. I’m paying a #gym to literally show me how miserable it is before I workout. Even with the misery, I’m making my #monday worth it! #you are the start to a #fantastic day! No one else but you can make it happen. ❤️ #singlemom #buildingafosterhome

And then there’s this! Stairs above basement. I love history and how the young kids drew on the underside of the steps. I don’t #love the #mildew #mold growing. I had to clean up with peroxide and again @zinsser to the #rescue ! So much more to go! But for now, it’s a good start. #renovation #basement #singlemom #buildingafosterhome #sundayfunday #sunday #dinnertime #leftovers #jambalaya

#regram @crimecon I should so do this! With all my #renovations it would be perfect! Lol! #singlemom #buildingafosterhome

So this wall wasn’t planned. I started cleaning it and realized how bad it was. I’m hoping my plan will work. I used @zinsser mold killing primer and then I plan to put the water barrier over it. I didn’t do the entire wall because I think I found the problem. My last #contractors didn’t seal my old back door properly and the water is draining from my back porch down into my basement. 🙄😳 This will likely be the first project my new contractors will tackle! #renovations #mustysmell #basementleak #basement #painting #sunday #sundayfunday

Off to a good start. Before and semi after. 1 gallon covered 1/2 a wall and I still need another coat. Praying I’ll get a few dry days to finish. It’s not looking great, but we’ll see. I can’t wait to get the floors done also. 😊 #renovation #sunday #sundayfunday #painting #basement #waterproofing #singlemom #buildingafosterhome

#exhausted I don’t feel old but staying up 22.5 hours, working a full day and running around #nyc all night, knocked me out and likely proved otherwise! I’m not 21 anymore. Lol! It might have been one of the best nights I’ve ever had in nyc. Truly #blessed For now though, I’m going to #bed 💤😴 I slept 4 hrs last night. I’m done. 😊 #singlemom #buildingafosterhome #sweetdreams #earlysaturdaynight #saturdaynight #zzzz
