I started the C25K this morning.... but I'm doing it at my own pace. I turn 40 in January and on my bucket list for the past 10 years has been to run a 5K. I have my sights set on a race next July that goes along the river here. It's a gorgeo... Read more

Ok so....

... the workouts didn't quite go as planned last week. Today is a rest day and the schedule restarts tomorrow. Instead of letting it get me down, I'm getting back out there. I signed up for the Santa Shuffle 5K in December which I'm excited a... Read more

Organized and Ready!

Tuesday, September 02, 2014      3 comments

My monthly dinner menu is made, my workout schedule is set, and my life is slowly getting organized, one drawer at a time. On the docket tomorrow? 30 minutes on the spin bike, strength training, and vegetable stir fry for dinner. :)... Read more

Summer's Over... and so is the free-for-all!

Monday, September 01, 2014      2 comments

OK, so maybe it wasn't a free-for-all entirely, but I wasn't totally on my game. So tomorrow, my boys are back at school, DH is back at work, and my year as a supply teacher begins.... which means no work for the first week or two. Which also ... Read more

I've been getting up every day (even though I'm off all summer which is a feat in itself!) at 6:30 a.m. and meeting my dad (and sometimes my mom) for a walk in the mornings. This all happens while my DH and kids are sleeping soundly at home. W... Read more

Still going... albeit slowly

Sunday, July 27, 2014      1 comments

I'm still here and still working at it. I recruited my parents as my new walking partners which was a great move on my part. My dad is 6'5" and his pace is much faster than what I would do on my own so he keeps me moving at a great pace and wo... Read more

100 Days

Wednesday, May 28, 2014      1 comments

The new trend right now seems to be these 100 Day challenges - so now it's my turn. I've decided to do 100 Days of Self Love. This means doing things that make me feel good, look good, etc. Something as simple as doing my hair nicely every da... Read more

It has not been good...

.... and by this I mean my eating and exercising.... I was supposed to be walking a half marathon this upcoming weekend and 2 weeks ago, broke 3 toes on my left foot. They are healing quite nicely and quickly, but not quickly enough! My goal o... Read more

Plant-Based Diet

Monday, May 05, 2014      1 comments

I was sitting in my doctor's office today (bladder infection.... again) and there was a DVD playing on the TV in the waiting room. It was called "Forks Over Knives" and was about the benefits of a plant-based diet. My doctor has recently becom... Read more

Tried something.... it didn't work

Tuesday, April 29, 2014      1 comments

I have Bob Greene's The Best Life Diet book {I'm sure I have written about this before} and I thought, "Let's give this a try". What I have learned is this.... I need to track. I need to be accountable and mindful of everything that goes in my... Read more

OMG I'm back again....

Monday, April 14, 2014      5 comments

(did you get the Backstreet Boys reference???) It's been quite the journey the past few months. I signed up for the Curves Complete program and HATED it so I went back to Weight Watchers. It was OK, but not necessarily worth the price (ev... Read more

I ate a muffin!

Yesterday was such a weird day. Struggling with the death of my husband's friend and trying to be there for DH. And then last night, my older DS had lacrosse. I had given the boys cereal before lacrosse and then DH picked them up subs when he... Read more

Struggling Today...

We woke up this morning to learn that my DH's best friend passed away in his sleep last night. He was 37 years old. They are performing an autopsy today, but the suspicion is that he died of cardiac arrest. His little boys, ages 5 and 6, trie... Read more

Week 2 Begins!

Monday, November 18, 2013      0 comments

Today is the official start of week 2 of my juice life. I had more smoothies than juices this weekend. I find the smoothies help keep me full through the morning. I did have some chocolate yesterday and I feel like my body is now getting used... Read more

Grapefruit and Carrot: Delish!

Saturday, November 16, 2013      3 comments

My weekend morning juice today is grapefruit and carrot. If I had ginger root, I would have added a bit of that as well. I juiced 4 grapefruits and 4 carrots. It's heavy on the grapefruit, but I love grapefruit so it's right up my alley. My ... Read more
