Special Olympics and WWE announce international partnership #WWEMoms

Play Unified WWE

WWE is one of the biggest supporters of community, with the many events, and partnerships they already have with so many great causes, it’s surprising that they have the time or energy to partner up with even more.

WWE and Special Olympics have announced an international partnership with the Play Unified campaign. This campaign will unite people and communities through the power and joy of sports.

You will see WWE Superstars participating in various Play Unified events with Special Olympics athletes from around the world. In fact today WWE opened their performance center doors to Special Olympics athletes who got a great workout and had fun with many WWE Superstars.

Play Unified WWE

Going forward, WWE will be utilizing platforms such as WWE Network, TV, Live Events and Social Media to generate awareness and support for Special Olympics.

WWE has always had a love for the Special Olympics and their athletes dating back to a partnership in the 1995 World Games in New Haven, Connecticut as well as last year with the 2015 Special Olympics World Games in LA.

Visit the WWE Facebook page to see photos and live shots taken today while Special Olympics made their visit to the Performance Center.  To read more about the partnership and learn about the Play Unified campaign, visit www.specialolympics.org and www.playunified.org.

The Scariest Post Ever Made – #WAMJourney

SO here, it is, the post I’ve been dreading…It’s sad, and most of all embarrassing to put out on the internet what I weigh, what my measurements are, and how awful I look.  It’s embarrassing to admit how FAT and horrid looking I am.  I hate it, but I’m changing it!

I am COMMITTED and DETERMINED to reach my goals. If you haven’t already read about my story, see last week’s post here.

This past week, my trainer wanted me to measure. We’re on a schedule of Measure Week, Weigh Week, Measure Week. So, Saturday I got hubby to measure me, that means this coming Saturday will be weigh in day. I also got him to take a few photos of me. Which ugh, is going to be so hard to post, but I have to….

I have been doing my 2x a week boot camps, 2x a week training session at the gym, and then 1x a week with hubby at the gym just doing my own thing without my trainer. Soon, I’ll be adding in a Saturday boot camp with my trainer, so it will be a steady 6x a week working out with 1 rest day. I am LOVING this new schedule that I have, and although I have days that I wake up and don’t want to work out, I’m still doing it. Once I get there, start doing it, I’m so glad that I did.

The thing I need to work on more, is my water consumption, and my nutrition, which is something I’ll be working on this week with my trainer.

On that note, here we go…. Photos….These were taken 6/18/16…….Excuse the morning face, hair and no makeup. I seriously did this before I got dressed, or took a shower….


Measurements….Taken 6/18/16
Waist – 50.5”
Hips – 57.0”
Thighs – 29.0”
Calves – 18.5”
Neck – 16.5”
Chest – 48.0”
Biceps – 18.0”
Biceps Flexed – 19.0”
Forearms – 12.0”

The last time I weighed myself was May 26th 2016, my weight was…….241.5lbs. *Sad Face*  Since I started my Toujeo Insulin and some of my other medications, I’ve gained over 10lbs since I started them.  My goal is to get off of them completely.  I also have to find a new doctor, someone who will listen better.  I’d rather NOT be on medications that keep me gaining weight, it’s kind of counter productive to being a type 2 diabetic!

So, there you have it…..My most embarrassing post I’ve made in the past 9 years of blogging. The thing that drives me to post it though, is the progress posts I’ll be able to make after this, the hard work, the dedication and the changes I make will make this post all worth it!

Oh, and my motivation for this week…..One of my favorite WWE Women’s Superstars on the cover of Muscle & Fitness Her with some of her workouts… Picked it up on the day it was released! Goal, to be able to do her workouts soon….


Now, to finish writing this post, and to actually hit publish…..Here I go……..

WWE and Fatherhood.gov #MakeAMoment to be a Fatherhood #Hero – #WWEMoms

WWE and Fatherhood.gov

Father’s Day is this upcoming Sunday, but what does it take to be a Father? Sure, lots of men out there can be dads, but it’s the ones that play an active role in their children’s lives that have the privilege of being a Father.

WWE has partnered up with Fatherhood.gov again this year to honor all of the Father’s around the word who take the time out, to be active participants in their children’s lives. WWE wants to encourage dads to recognize how much of a role they play in their children’s lives and for those who maybe need it, give them some tips on how to be more involved.

This month, you’ll see WWE Superstars in nationwide campaigns to generate awareness of the commitment it takes to be a Father. WWE Superstars will let the audience know “It Takes A Moment To Make A Moment” and how to be a Superstar and Hero making an impact in their child’s life.

Even the busiest dads can take a moment to make an impact with their children. I couldn’t ask for a better Father for my girls than my husband. He works so hard to make sure we have everything we want, and although may not have the hours in at home that he does at work, when he is home, he gives the girls the attention they need. Whether they need a good pep talk, need some discipline, help with homework, or if they just need Daddy time which means goofing off and playing around, Rodney is there for the girls. How many Fathers do you know would play with Barbie Dolls??

Studies tell us that children with involved, loving fathers are significantly more likely to do well in school, have better self-esteem, exhibit empathy and pro-social behavior. I can attest to all of the above when it comes to my own girls!

To date, the Fatherhood Involvement campaign has reached more than $193 million in donated media. Please visit Fatherhood.gov or call 1-877-4-DAD-411 to get information on how to become more involved in your children’s lives, get parenting tips, and find fatherhood programs and resources. You can also find Fatherhood.gov on Facebook and Twitter.

To all the Father’s out there, hope you have a HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
