Welcome to Spring Pooka Family!!!  Yea, yea, yea, I know it snowed the first day of spring and that temperatures feel anything but spring-like but it is officially spring on the calendar.  That means it’s time to pack away those winter clothes, pull out those Spring jackets, start planting the flower beds and get outside and start moving!  Personally, I feel as though I’ve gained about 20lbs this winter with not being very active.  As we get older (26 yrs per Taiye) I know that our muscles turn into fat a lot quicker so it’s so important to stay active, stretch, be mobile so we can enjoy life and not have to complain about aches and pains.  I feel as though I’ve had cabin fever for 6 months so I’m ready to get outside and walk off these pounds.  Won’t you join me Pooka family?

Greetings Family.  I celebrated my birthday two days ago!  I received lots of call and lots of texts and lots of love for which I am forever grateful!  Before I got out of bed I read from a prayer inspiration book that I keep on my nightstand.  When I finished reading I prayed and thanked God for the moments of my life!  Family I share with you to cherish the moments.

Ok. Its March. We are two months and two weeks into the new year. How ya doing? Ok I'll start, I have fallen off. WAAAAAY OFF. I really couldn't tell you what happened, I finished up the Daniel fast strong, I actually keep going after it was over thinking that I could become a vegetarian (kinda sortof still eating fish) but it wasn't that bad. Sugar who needs sugar? I got Applesauce! Lol what a joke! Next thing I knew I was eating turkey burgers and oreos! What happened? I stopped exercising! Why did my body betray me? We were doing so well. Well I've cried my last tears and I'm starting again. One morning at a time, one meal at a time, one day at a time. Who's with me!!!
