  • I have tried new things this month and it was awesome!

    8/26/2015 11:36:08 AM, by HEATHERM70

    My goal for August was to try to hit as many new classes at the gym as I could to learn new ways to exercise. I've done very well in achieving that goal. I managed to try four of the seven classes not previously done and they have now added another one that I'll catch as soon as time allows. The ... Read more

    8/24/2015 6:15:11 PM, by KALISWALKER

    This is a picture of our RV. We are getting packed to go to La Connor, WA in the morning, to stay a couple of weeks at an RV park right on the ocean. I am a minimalist at heart, so the compact efficient space of our RV (aka The Love Nest) makes me happy. I have everything I need and it take... Read more

  • Sunny Days

    8/21/2015 3:33:48 PM, by KALISWALKER

    I enjoy meeting new people. In February, this little Girl Scout was selling her cookies at the polo match. I passed on buying cookies (I can be a good Sparker), then thought about how happy my daughters were when someone would buy their cookies. I made a point of going to find the girl and buy co...

It was a fun month, lots of entertainment, dining out, daily walks and spending time with friends. Dail... Read more

    If someone would have told me years ago how much fun being a grandma was I would have told them they were nuts!! I love my kids to the moon and back and would never change the memories we have had. I cherish my oldest keeping me awake all the time...and the constant why questions as a little toddl... Read more

  • Tried 3 new classes now

    8/14/2015 11:09:35 AM, by HEATHERM70

    I've done Group Centergy: (pilates and yoga), Group Ride: (stationary bike and I'm not sure of the difference between that class and a Spin class), and Group Kick: (kick boxing). I was told I could have 20 or 30 minutes of training on free weights as I do not feel comfortable using them. Last Tues... Read more

  • Weird

    8/12/2015 2:12:42 AM, by RACING4ME

    I couldn't figure out why I felt meh today. Figured out what I wanted to do for a workout, then basically sat on my butt the entire day. Before I would have given myself some really bad self-messages. But today I knew it as different. My dear friend who lives in Nova Scotia was coming to town. ... Read more

  • Really, what I have done has helped??

    8/11/2015 1:25:32 AM, by RACING4ME

    Yesterday I did a long walk in the middle of the day - it was great to give me time to think. Monkey was going to come with me, until I told him that it would be longish, and his legs may be sore when he started baseball camp. Yeah, he said no...LOL:):) When I think about how this time going thro... Read more

  • Is this really me?

    8/8/2015 1:37:57 AM, by RACING4ME

    After my amazing workout yesterday, I was so motivated to keep it going. I have so many times over the past years started and stopped working out because of depression and lack of motivation...so this was a HUGE move forward! So today I got up and cooked Josh and I a nice breakfast, and hit my bas... Read more

  • Trying new things

    8/7/2015 12:42:43 PM, by HEATHERM70

    My motto for August is Try New Things. I've printed a calendar and noted all uncommitted time that I could be going to the gym and all the classes offered at those times or in those evenings. I am highlighting each new class I try and hope that I will have tried them all by the end of the month. ... Read more

  • What an awesome day!!!

    8/7/2015 1:28:02 AM, by RACING4ME

    So Josh and I got home yesterday after him spending 2.5 weeks on Vancouver Island. We just chilled and didn't do anything for the rest of the day. Slept in today, and managed to find my motivation while I did it. Today I did a super fun workout. Run/Walk on the dreadmill (LOL Debbie) for 30 ... Read more

    8/3/2015 1:43:42 AM, by RACING4ME

    So Missy slept over at her girlfriends last night, and I stayed up WAYYYYYY too late, which meant I slept in WAYYYYYY to long. I still can't figure out how to make myself just have motivation....it seems like a big battle everyday. I know a lot of it is dealing with issues that have happened over ... Read more

  • Hot walk!!

    8/2/2015 2:24:02 AM, by RACING4ME

    Sooo, Plan for the day was to walk with Missy in the morning, and then do a rrwalk in the evening. Didn't quite work-out the way I wanted...Missy did not want to go for a walk, and my belly was having issues this morning anyhow. So, I headed out for my hike around 2:30....hit Knox Mountain (P...

  • Daily struggles:-)

    8/1/2015 2:32:17 AM, by RACING4ME

    Thursday wasn't a great day for me...I ate ok, but didn't exercise much at all, a bunch of drama with people that need to find a way to not meddle in others lives. Friday was much better, I ate pretty well, and did a 65 min dreadmill workout - rrwalking, along with a strength training one. It was ... Read more
