Monday morning...blah!

Monday, November 05, 2012

So my two beautiful children decided over the weekend to get sick with fevers, coughs, and nasty noses and then share it with me. I feel terrible. I hate head colds. On top of that TOM started on Saturday, a whole week early. I am one lucky girl, am I not??

I refused to get lazy even though I am not feeling the best. If I go more than a couple of days with falling off the wagon, it takes me FOREVER to get back in the swing of things. I decided that I don't know how much worse I will feel tomorrow, so "SUCK IT UP and get going" is what I told myself!!

I got my lifting done and my 3.3 mile run on the treadmill. I am not going to lie...it sucked. But I got it done and I am done for the day. Both my kids are home sick today so I laid them down for a nap. I am not a nap person myself, but am seriously contemplating taking one!

Hope everyone stays healthy this week!!

So PROUD of myself!!!

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

SO....today I totally PUSHED myself on the treadmill. First off, I really didn't want to get on it at all today, I just wasn't feeling it. But I refused to let myself slack...I know my temptations are going to get the best of me tomorrow and the days following due to chocolate in the house! I got on and did my warm up. Usually I walk 3 minutes, run 17(sucking for air at this point!!!), walk 3, run 7, walk 3, run 7 and then cool down for 5 minutes. Today, I just wanted to get my mileage and calorie burn DONE! So I just kept telling myself "One more song Kelly, you can do it". It got so stinking hard towards the end, but I DID IT!!! I ran for over 3.1 miles without taking a break with waking!!!! For not wanting to even get on the treadmill to begin with, I FEEL AMAZING!!!!! There is something to be said about pushing yourself harder than you normally do and having the faith in yourself to know that you can do it...you can do ANYTHING you set your mind and heart to.

This is how my pants are going to fit me if I keep up at this rate!!! emoticon

8 Days!!

Thursday, September 06, 2012

8 days until we fly out, but only 7 days until we officially leave and all meet up at the hotel the night before flying out. I can't wait!!

I got another workout in today, though it was shorter. We have been doing some landscaping work at my mom's house this week and it includes shoveling a LOT of rock, dirt, and other stuff. My body is quite upset with me, but in a good way!! My husband was shocked with me. I totally pulled my weight when it came to all this work. He told me that had we done all this before I really got consistent with my workouts, especially my ST, I would've wimped out and whined the entire time. He was excited to see me get after it. And to be honest, I was really proud of myself. I worked hard at all that shoveling and stuff. I hung right in there with him. It meant so much to me for him to say that to me and that he noticed how STRONG I have become!!

We have lots to do before we leave next week and of course not a free evening before. Not sure when and how I am going to get all the packing done. But hey....it's the beach, all we need is a swimsuit!! emoticon

14 Days!!!

Friday, August 31, 2012

Well technically, it's only 13 days as we are going to drive down to a hotel the night before. So I can actually say less than 2 weeks from today!!

I got another AWESOME workout in this morning before anyone else was up. Actually my husband came down to do his run while I was still working out. I love getting up at 4:30am and just knocking out my work out before anyone else's day even starts. I feel off all day if I don't and have to do it later in the day. Throws off my day!! I got in a 30 minute run, some CLE weights, and some TF HITTS 20. I was exhausted when I was done so I refueled myself with my morning Shakeology!! Felt like a million bucks!

We have had a crazy last couple of weeks. My husband and I have had infertility problems and we were told years ago we would never get pregnant. My 8 year old we adopted when she was 2, my 2 year old son we are in the process of adopting him and hope that it is final in October but we got him when he was 3 months old, and now we are going to *hopefully* add a third baby!! We have been working with an adoption agency that has a pretty high success rate at matching families with newborns. They only take 5-6 families in the spring and 5-6 families in the fall. There were 19 families that applied this fall and we actually got picked as one of the families to continue on!! My cup runneth over!! We are hoping that our profile will be up and ready for picking by November and then we wait. The Lord does some pretty AWESOME things and He has blessed my family leaps and bounds.

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I live in Nebraska and it truly is a beautiful state, even more so in the fall. I love all the beautiful colors and the smells of fall. So we have our vacation coming up, fall is fast approaching us along with the holidays, my son's adoption should be final in a month or two, and now another hopeful adoption. Sometimes you just have those moments where your life is as is should be. Everything is perfect.

Have a very Blessed holiday weekend.

25 Days!!

Monday, August 20, 2012

I'm baaacckk!! :-)

Yes, I have been MIA for a just a bit. Life happened. No excuses. When I couldn't get my full workout in, I tried to be very careful with my nutrition. I was able to get some ST here and there and some cardio here and there, but not really a full workout. I got it in this morning and my kids are still sleeping! I did my ST and TurboFire HIIT 20. I still plan to do some running later today, but I am spent right now. My 8 year old daughter and I are running a 5K on Saturday so I really need to get my runs in this week to get ready. Though I know that we will be walking more than running, but I am really going to try to push her. I am just so proud of her for doing this and looking forward to our bonding while exercising. It is so far out of her comfort level, and that is a good thing!

Three weeks from Friday I will be beachside with my family. AAHHHHH, beachside, that sounds so nice!!

Off to reward myself with my Chocolate Shakeology for breakfast. Happy Monday!
