Ash Wednesday

Today is usually when I start starving myself in hopes of pulling my crap together. It is a time of sacrifice and reflection. But this year, I'm approaching things a little differently. Instead of focusing on giving something up, I'm simply givi... Read more

I did a great job on my food today after a weekend of cheating. I'm so proud of myself for pulling it together! I also got on my bike and did 30 minutes, which was all I could stand; also my kids were coming home from school and there were backp... Read more

What a week it's been! My kids were off for snow days, and I got offered a long-term sub position! I'm teaching sophomore English until March for a paternity leave. I'm really enjoying it so far, but it is a little overwhelming!!! I am a trained... Read more

Hello, 2015!

I don't know what it is about a New Year that makes people commit to a healthier lifestyle, but this year it is working for me. It was just the kick in the pants I needed. :) I have been fighting a cold for about a week and a half, and tod... Read more

Goodbye, 2014!!!

Monday, December 29, 2014      2 comments

This morning I put together a Google doc with some goals for my husband and myself, and a place for us to journal together about our progress/fails/wins. Instead of focusing on weight loss, we are just going to focus on one healthy habit every w... Read more

Chill In the Air

Tuesday, November 11, 2014      2 comments

What a crappy November day. The temperature has bottomed out and it is miserable, windy, overcast, and COLD. I can see I will be plastering Neosporin and Bandaids all over my fingers and toes very soon! :/ However, I'm super excited about ... Read more

This will be short because I'm on my way out the door, but I just wanted to say how much I like the channel my son put on my Pandora account! It is all film scores to stuff like Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean, Narnia, and more. I feel like ... Read more

Warrior? Or Non-Warrior?

This morning I dragged my sorry self that has been fighting a cold for the past 4 days, and has a migraine, to the gym for training. I got a half hour on the elliptical too, which totally kills my feet/ankles but I sucked it up and did it. Yeste... Read more

Taking a Deep Breath

This morning during training, we talked about all the things I want to do to regroup. My weight has stayed pretty much the same since I started training, and I know it's because I'm constantly obsessing about food and going overboard after doing... Read more

Not a Great Week...But Trying!

Thursday, October 02, 2014      1 comments

It's been one of those weeks where I am questioning everything I'm doing and why I'm doing it. My food has been better, my exercise a little on the low side, but I'm doing my best in spite of being mentally exhausted. Every day this week, I have... Read more

Personal Training

Wednesday, September 17, 2014      3 comments

I never considered myself the type to give in to personal training. It is expensive, and from what I've seen of it, it is basically some guy yelling at you to keep going. I'm pretty self-driven, so I don't really think it's necessary to hire som... Read more

Getting Back to it

Friday, September 05, 2014      1 comments

This past week, I've been working on getting my mojo back. I've been to the gym 4 days this week, marched in a Labor Day parade as a band mom watering thirsty kids, and eaten a lot better. I still had a dish of ice cream last night before bed, b... Read more
