What have I been up to?

So Cellulitis...let's talk about it. I have it and it's not fun. It' a bacteria infection in my leg that I caught it from a wound I have had since November of last year. This is why people say take care of your bodies and the bible says to treat it as if it's a temple. I will be the first to admit that I have not.

I have been to the ER, regular Doctor, Wound Doctor and now I have to see a Vein Doctor. Quite frankly I am burnt out. I can't wait to get rid of it and whatever other problems that I am dealing with. My right leg has been through it all. I had a blood clot about 12 years ago and since then I have been dealing with major swelling in the same leg. Last year I cut it it and it never healed and then recently I caught Cellulitis. Now I have found out that the reason I did not heal quickly was not because of Diabetes (Which I do not have), but because of my veins being damaged.

The first step to solving many of my problems is to lose weight. Which I have lost 20 pounds so far in this summer journey of "GETTING MY LIFE", thanks Tamar Braxton.

I am so excited about it, but I have a long way to go. There is still 182 pounds to go. However, I love cooking while losing weight. It pushes my creativity as far as coming up with meals that are light and absent of salt and sugar. I will tell you the truth it is very hard missing the taste of salt, sugar, and fat. We have gotten away from our strict diet because we found that we were not eating enough. I am trying ta add what I can here and there, but keep it SAFE.

I also coupon and it was hard trying to find coupons that were consistent with our diet. However, I think I have figured out a method that I will not share because I plan on starting a business that will show other people who are in my same position how to coupon and still lose weight.

I love showing pictures so here is what I got:

I got $246.61 worth of grocery for only $37.72.


Salad kits, mussels, cereal, 8 packs of meat

Some of the meat I got



Foil pans

Wheat Pasta

One of my larger receipts.

I did three transactions in all, but I got a ton of goodies. My husband and I got a high five on that. I have not made a meal yet, but last night my husband and I wanted something different. I made two appetizers and were very satisfied.

Caprese Salad no salt.

Salmon fillets with homemade pesto sauce and Alouette cheese spread on toasted french bread with lemon zest. So Yummy!
