Begin again again
But seriously, how many times can you say you're starting again before people think you're just like the boy who cried wolf??? I mean, at some point, no one will listen. But I think there's also value in stepping up, even if it's the 306th time... Read more
A rant because I do not have all the answers...
I am not stupid. In fact, I pride myself on being pretty smart. At the same time, I’m certainly not claiming to know everything. And I think I’m pretty good about knowing my limitations. That being said, I’m tired. I’m resentful. And these ... Read more
I was shocked and moved to tears when I found out my blog yesterday had been voted a “Popular Blog Post”! Never had I received such an outpouring of support from people who do not even know me. But THAT is the exact reason I joined this site; ... Read more
Wake Up & Recommit - again.
It’s odd to think that when I sat down to create my goals this morning, I wrote down “lose 10 pounds”. But when I actually did the math, I need to lose 18 pounds to hit my goal weight. It’s so strange to me how we lie to ourselves. And we do ... Read more
Cinnamon Apple infused water. Seriously just try it.
I’m a huge Pinterest fan … I love browsing through the thousands of ideas. And I love trying the ideas as I can. Not all of them are winners, but I’ve had enough successes that I’m willing to keep exploring. Today’s big success is cinnamon appl... Read more
I’m going to brag here for a minute because I don’t have anywhere else to do this. Not only that, I fear that by bragging about my accomplishments over the last couple days will pale in comparison to others. So instead of feeling good about mys... Read more
Trying to get my healthy back...
There’s a great feeling to getting sleep. It is amazing. If you don’t get enough, I highly recommend figuring out ways to get it. I actually got some quality sleep this weekend, and I feel like it’s making all the difference in my attitude today... Read more
How is it that I am sick again already?!?! I have managed to track more sick hours this year than all of last year … and it’s only April. What gives?? I am more health conscious than ever, but I continue to catch every bug that comes by? I j... Read more
Still Sick :(
I took a 4 day weekend in order to celebrate my husband's birthday, and I've been sick the entire time. Not only am I personally not thrilled with being sick, I'm feeling guilty for making a mess of hubby's birthday.

3500 calories = 1 pound
So in other words ... my 250-ish calories burned per workout ain't gonna cut it. Plus, since I'm not tracking my specific intake, I have no idea about the progress I'm making. However, it does somehow inspire me to want to push myself just a l... Read more
I want my sexy back.
Yep – seriously. It’s not that I don’t think I’m attractive at the moment; it’s that I know I could be better. The fact that my birthday is looming around the corner isn’t helping my attitude about said “lost” sexy.
My challenges are:

The Gift of Teaching Healthy
One of my most important roles, as step-mother, is to teach healthy. And that means anything and everything I can think of regarding a healthy lifestyle.
Today, we took an aqua fitness class together at the YMCA. Well, we tried to, anyway... Read more
Making March Plans
I always love the first of a month because it always feels like a fresh start. Messed up last month? No problem? Yesterday didn’t go as planned? That’s ok – we’ll get it done this month…. And that’s all fine and good, as long as we’re not s... Read more
I got to the gym again. It is bad that I’m so proud of this?!
I didn’t spend as much time there I would have liked. The husband was having ankle issues and we also got a slightly later start than I wanted. But I was there. I got in a little over 15 minutes, but they were QUALITY minutes. And that's what... Read more

Obviously, not 2 seconds.... but 30 mins. And that wasn't easy. No real improvement from Sunday, but then what am I expecting taking Monday and Tuesday off? Of course, I c... Read more
