Women’s March

Hello New World, 
I awoke this morning to a Trump Presidency, and my heart went into dismay. The very first action he takes, is to use executive order to dismantle Affordable Care Act (aka “Obamacare). I was hurt. I want to be a living testimony of “Obamacare”. For the past few years, I have been hired and fired way too many times to count. In fact, this has effected my self esteem, as well as financial security. The stress has taken a huge toll on my health. I have stress induced migraines, high blood pressure, and a past foot injury that haunts me to this day. I know someone who is reading this is probably stating “So what!”, but hey, this is my story. I could not afford my medication, nor my surgery, and I thank God that Obamacare was available to me. Granted, I am not the best person with change, but I am learning that it is a part of life. However, a Trump presidency that dismantles the Affordable Care Act, should not be a part of it. I am better, but not to the point where I can stand of sit for long periods of time. I was hurt that I could not attend today’s march. I heard that it was a lot of people that attended today’s event. It was so many people that DC was closed until 6pm. I thank God for all the people that came out and stood up for rights. This administration can not stand. 

TTYL!

My Weight Loss Journey

Good Morning New World,
So, the topic, for today, is so left field from photography, it’s still relevant. What am I talking about? 

Weight loss. 

Weight can be an issue, at times, when doing a shoot. It can make you unable to move in ways you need to move, in order to get a great shot, or just making it hard to move my equipment due to my extra weight. I am currently in the process, and trust it is a process, to shed a few pounds. 

So, a lot of people may not know this about me, but I have always been a thick chick. I was chubby as a child, thick as a teen, and have grown wider as an adult. I have always wanted to be lighter, as far as my weight goes. I was just clueless about it. So, I would try diet trends that have all failed me. I keep trying to lose, but no real hope. 

My main problem: late night sugar run. 

I asked a friend of mine, Mr. Ty Hanson, to help me in losing a few pounds. I started Wednesday, and began to take account of what I am currently doing, as well as doing some in-home workouts. Realistically, I would like to go down by, at least 20 lbs. I am hoping to exceed my goal. I will keep you posted on my journey, and feel tell me about your journey. I would love the inspiration. 

Wish me luck!
