Date night with my handsome hubby-feelin good!
Exterior renos to our home this fall- windows, siding, roof, covered deck- done! Landscaping-soon!
Here I am back at it, friends! We have had our last little one and I am ready to kick some butt and get myself moving and shaking to shed this weight, strengthen my body, and create a healthy example for my family.
Super excited to be on Team Tiger Monarchs for the Summer 5% Challenge!
I promise myself and my teammates to stick it through no matter what life throws at me in the next eight weeks(hello lake vacation I'm looking at you)and to help cheer everyone on in their own journeys.
I deserve the time, effort, attention and love this will take.
My goal is to get to onederland and reach 180 by the time the year is done. Its a lofty goal but it is attainable! Reach for the stars:)
I will move daily and record it here
My fitbit, zumba on the wii, walking, running with baby in the jogging stoller, and strength training with the hubby are my chosen exercises.
I am motivated by results, so I will measure myself every two to four weeks.
I will eat cleaner, following meal plans and planning ahead by shopping for recipes, on a weekly basis.
I will take a cooler with me when I go to town for groceries so I am not tempted by processed junk food. If all else fails, I will buy the salad with protein!
Strap on that fitbit, aiming for 10,000 steps per day
Do strength training with baby as weight lol
Go for walks with kids after dinner, even if just for ten minutes
My actual name is April and my daughter's name is Autumn:)
I am mom of four children
I love gardening, although I am not that good at it haha and I have finally started to compost
I love the arts-drawing, especially the human form, painting in acrylics, and sculpture, as well as photography and music.
I took a turn at design this year as we completely redid the exterior of our home, and are now finishing up the kitchen and bootroom addition. Must say, it looks fantastic! Now for landscaping

Happy Friday! Time for some Friday Funnies
My yoga class is great! You can close your eyes, and imagine yourself in a relaxing place, like lying on your couch not doing Yoga.
I prefer sit-ups to jumping jacks. At least I get to lie down after each one.
I was going to wake up early to go jogging, but my toes voted against me 10 to 1. - Randy Glasbergen

Before you act - listen.
Before you react - think.
Before you spend - save.
Before you criticize - wait.
Before you pray - forgive.
Before you quit - try again.
A reminder today of remembering to move through your day from your heart.

The greatest thing you have is the 24 hours in front of you. The past is gone; the future is distant.
Today you CAN succeed. Set a goal you can achieve in the next 24 hours.
I hope the coming week is full of success, happiness, and good things for you!
Are you back from vacy yet? Hope you had a great time!

We always work for a better tomorrow,
But when tomorrow comes instead of enjoying it . . .
We again think of a better tomorrow!
Letâ€™s take a deep breath and be present
And let's have a better TODAY!
Hope your Thursday is as terrific as you are!
