Kyle's 2016 Concussion-bruised ribs-bruised sternum

Turn up the volume and listen to this hard tackle my son took at the Madison Central Soccer Tourney. He ended up with a concussion and bruised ribs and sternum. The player only got a Yellow Card.
We now have Referees showing this in their training as how to better position yourself to see the foul. Whomever said Soccer wasn't a physical sport.....needs to look at this video. 
Kyle is recovering and this is his senior year. Hopefully he will be able to participate in the District matches coming up. Always protect yourself and always go in harder than the other guy. This just took Kyle Workman by surprise as he didn't expect this in a soccer game- #soccer#football #hitheardaroundtheworld #yellowcardonlyfail #concussion

The Dawn Of A New Day.....

This is my Journey....It will be a long one and many will try to deter me from my ultimate goal but I will not give up. I am a Hard working mother, wife , sister, aunt and daughter. I have overcome many obstacles in my life and during that time I gave up on myself and my health while I focused on everyone else. Its time for me to get back to me. By doing that I will have a much better balance in my life. Filling my day with positive affirmations and working on removing the negative thoughts and fears in my life is my goal. 

I take this weight loss journey:
  • One day at time
  • One meal at a time
  • One workout at a time
  • I am worth it
  • I am deserving
  • My family loves me and supports me in this battle.
  • God is my strength and will carry me when I fall, because we all fall
  • I will get back up and keep trying
For all of you who are on this journey with me, please create your own affirmations. 
This is my battle and I know your battle is different. But we can all encourage and support one another whether it be weight, alcohol, any addictions that bring you pain and loss. 
We are not alone. Thanks to everyone who has supported me during this journey...I am just beginning.

I have lost 3 pounds in my first week. 

I consider that successful. Did I cheat .....YES....did I exercise....NO...
But even though I did not perform perfectly I did still lose....I believe because I made a conscious effort to try. 
I started keeping a journal of what I put in my mouth. Amazing how much you eat when you think you don't.  By watching my serving sizes and writing down what I ate....I lost weight.
Imagine how much more I would lose if I had worked out and Not cheated.

Life just got to roll with the punches....

This is my motto. I am tired of feeling sick and tired. My journey starts again to day. I know I am not the only one who has had a lot of failures before you have success. If losing weight and getting healthy was EASY...we would not be the most obese free country. Gonna get back on the horse and begin again as the alternatives to being healthy are just not good ( diabetes, high cholesterol, stroke, heart attack and the end all death). So here I go again. 
One day at a time.....One meal at a time....One exercise at a time....
I wish all my friends who are on this journey with me the best and lets do this.

I'M BAAAACK!!!! Heresssss Margaret!


My inspirational photo from my wedding day. Helps me remember I have not always been this big. I am a work in progress. Every fat cell on my body along with wrinkles and white hair(yes I said white, I bypassed grey ) are all part of where I have been and where I am headed. My goal is to be headed to a healthier body type. Not thin, Not exactly what I was in this picture  because that is impractical and defeats me before I get started, but a healthier happier person who feels better in her skin and accepts herself for who she is. 

2013 Margaret-Week 1

I am still a work in progress and I will not give up on myself. This journey is one of the hardest I have faced. It is a race to get healthy. A race to be around for my husband,kids and family. With God's help anything is possible. 

I will be a healthier, more fit person again. My goals are large and so is my will to succeed. One pound at a time, One day at a time, One meal at a time. 


Wishing all my friends and family who are facing similar struggles great success, whether it be weight, alcohol, drugs or any other self defeating addiction you can beat this. Lets do it together.

Thanks to everyone for your support. Please keep me in your prayers as I continue on this journey of being FIT after FORTY!
