We are beyond blessed and grateful that we did not have damage from superstorm Sandy in our area. However, I have friends and coworkers whose homes were damaged due to floods and tree fallings. I did not go to work monday and today the office was closed. The roads are closed until further notice. I'm just so happy that our families are ok.

First lady

While watching the DNC, the first lady gave her speech about the value of family, working hard for family and her support for her husband aka Our President :) what really caught my attention was the story about her father.

She stated that her father had Multiple Sclerosis and woke up every day with a smile on his face. He as long as he could, never missed a day of work so that his children could get the education that he couldn't. Even through the pain he never gave up.

That touched my heart in so many ways because that is something I think of often. I too have MS and I plan to have children and worry about my energy levels or not wanting my kids to see me down. However, I know and will always remember that God is with us and we are favored.

I will keep pushing and never give up on my dreams.

Sunday Morning

Hello beauties! Ok so we have moved into our new place and slowly but surely setting things up :)
this weekend I have been really tired, I guess with moving and also the final days of wedding planning.

Living in Suffolk county is really different from what I'm used to but I'm happy for us to have a place we can call our own.

I don't know where the future may hold us to be but long as we are together it's all good.

Making moves

Steve called me today 6/29 at 11 am to tell me that we were approved for our 1st apartment!!! I'm excited and happy.

Yes, I do have some anxiety about going to a new area I'm not familiar with (away from my parents) but after a lot of thought I believe this will be a great move for us. We will about 40 minutes away from my parents/my job and just an additional 15 to get to his job. His mom lives out east and is like 5 minutes away so we aren't alone.

I asked God to help me and order our steps in the right direction and I believe that is what's happening. God is good and I'm ready for the new adventure to marriage and another 1st for us!

Almost 2 months away

Hey beauties!! Hope all is well. Here are a few updates from the end of April to now May 24th :

At the end of April, I spent the weekend with my future mother in law and sisters in law. I had a blast!!! with was really fun and it was good to spend the weekend with them. We shopped and had great conversation. Something to know about me is that I love to chat. I find fun in a great convo over wine than spending money all crazy doing stuff I wont remember next week.

Then the following weekend May 6th was the MS Walk. I enjoyed my fiance, parents, maid of honor(her family), my future in laws and  another dear friend for their support in walking with me. The walk was 4 miles total and I felt great :) Usually, I am worn out by the end but I actually was very pumped! I believe the new nike's I have contributed to that.

Then on May 12th,  I went to my first dress fittings!!! Is it possible to fall in love with your wedding gown all over again? Like I had it for a while now and its more amazing than when I first made the decision that it was the dress for me. I do have to shed some more pounds in the mid section and I'm working on that ;)! I'm more concerned about looking good for Jamaica! haha

So I have been a busy bee. Also during this time I went to three baby showers. On June 9th I will have my Bridal Shower! I'm so excited!!! I love surprises but due to my bridesmaids being spread apart I picked a date for the bridal shower/bachelorette night to happen so that they will be able to attend both.  I cant wait to see the guests and decorations and have a great time. I feel like for once I can sit back and relax. I've always went to bridal showers and baby showers, birthday celebrations and kiddie parties but now I am actually able to sit and exhale. Lord knows the past few years has been crazy but I am able to still smile and make strides forward :)

So as the wedding approaches, I feel many emotions. I'm of course excited to be marrying my best friend/lover, nervous about a new role as a wife-cooking more, leaving parents wings, thoughts of will I be a good wife? In a year or so; a good mother?

I pray and ask for the Lord to order my steps with the path He sees fit. I also asks for Him to touch my health and future marriage.

My fiancé is very strong and I'm so happy we chose each other. I do think about the unfortunate thoughts of what will happen if my health takes another turn? However, He has assured me that WE in it together. Gosh I love that man!

I'm sure all will be fine and work out :) I guess it's just little wedding jitters. Hehe

Go Orange

Hey beauties!!

March is Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Awareness month!!!

As you may know, yours truly was diagnosed April 13,2010. I can't believe it will be 2 years but with a great support system and faith on your side time flies by.

Today I did acupuncture. It was very interesting and informative. I'm incorporating it into my life. While being there a nutritionist spoke to me about my diet. Which exercising has been a bit of a hassle these past few months so I was prepared to hear all that he had to say. He mentioned the infammation in foods which for MS patients can trigger symptoms. So of course having a gluten free diet(breads, pastas), no dairy, no tomatoes, no peppers no eggplant. Becareful of strawberries, grapes, no cheese!!!!! I'm like wow wth can I eat? The plan is to go on this diet for two weeks then a month and slowly introduce certain foods to my body and see how it goes. That way we know for sure what are trigger foods.
I will be praying for strength but I have faith in myself and I believe I can do it! Wish me luck!!

Finally back in the gym

So, yesterday I went to the gym and took a lower body/ab class...OMGoodness!! I should have really taken baby steps with getting back in the habit but I dove straight in.  My thighs are still burning but I will keep going as much as I can. I will only do the hard core cardio classes on days that I dont take my medication.  on the days of taking my meds I will do yoga or have it as a rest day :)

Hows everyone else doing?

Hey beauties!!

How has everyone's new year been so far? It started off sad because there was a death in my fiance's family which is obviously family to me. It is sad however God is so amazing. All the family that came out for the homegoing service was truly moving. I'm very happy to be apart of his family. There is a tight bond and the role of family is so important to me.

I'm praying for improvement and change health wise. Before the holidays I had a really bad flare up with my condition as I wrote about before. It lasted almost 3 weeks and because of that I will be starting a new medication soon. Its a decision I had to make because I have to always consider my future. I unfortunately cant do things spontaneously like I used to, everything I have to give "real" thought to. The medication that I currently take is Avonex which is a once a week shot (the needle has to go into the muscle), the new medication Rebif is a 3 times a week shot that goes into the top layer of skin. Rebif is considered an intermediate disease modifying drug. Hopefully, this will work out for me. I will post about my progress.

but in other news...This is the YEAR!!!!!
