Dive Roll = Epic Fail

Today isn't even half over yet and it's proving to be hilarious. First my stupid dog ran out the front door as I was leaving for my karate class. He's a jack russell shelti mix and is quite a bit faster than I am. With the help of my husband ... Read more

So I got my TAA letter today (trade adjustment act). I was recently laid off at the end of June and since my job was outsourced I may be eligible for some extra benefits. The one I'm most excited about is education options. I won't know much ... Read more

So it's been forever since I've logged in, but I'm feeling motivated once again. My kids are a bit older now and it is getting easier to exercise with them, instead of waiting for time after they go to sleep. I've been going to Cage ... Read more

New Routine

So we just found out that my oldest has an AM kindergarten schedule, which is what we were hoping for. I guess I was in denial that my day would then have to begin at 645am. School starts on the 6th so we have some time to get adjusted. Today... Read more

I didn't think this week would turn out all that well, but I am thrilled to say I was sooo wrong. I worked out 2/4 days of my work week Sunday/Monday which are notoriously stressful days for me. Each day did 75 minutes and didn't quit :) ... Read more

So today was presentation day at work, had to stand up in front of all of my colleagues, my boss, her boss, their boss and then a VP just to add to it. I've been nervous for months and sick for days over it. I always get stressed about these m... Read more

Today it was over 100 degrees and it has been for most of the week, but today was my first day off of my "weekend" from work. I knew I really needed to work out because the last 4 days I haven't done too much to push myself. I didn't make any ... Read more

After listening to me ramble for 20 minutes about how excited I am about my progress, he very quietly pulled up a chair to the computer next to me and signed up for his own account. I couldn't be happier.... Read more

So I'm down 12 lbs and feeling pretty good. It's easier to do simple tasks like taking laundry up and down the stairs and chasing after the kids. For the first time in I don't know how long I didn't NEED coffee today and don't think I will. I... Read more
