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

"Life is not about expecting, hoping and wishing.
It is about doing, being and becoming.
It is about the choices you have just made, and the ones you are about to make.
It is about the things you choose to say.
And it is about what you are going to do after you finish reading this."
~ Mike Dooley
I hope you have a splendid Sunday, and are having one heck of a fun filled vacation!

Here's little humor to get your "Weekend Atta-Tude" revved up and rarin' to go today:
As you get older, you lose three important things.
The first is your memory.
The second is your ability to remember what you just said.
And I canâ€™t remember the third thing.

There are two things to aim at in life;
first to get what you want,
and after that to enjoy it.
Only the wisest of mankind has achieved the second.
