  • Okay, so routine change!

    11/20/2019 7:54:23 PM, by MAYBEMIDLIFE20

    So I have realized that I need to change up my routine a tiny bit... because apparently I'm not super-woman... yet... it'll happen... give it time! Today I had to take a rest day because my lower body routine plus cardio left me really sore from yesterday. My thighs are killing me... and well... Read more

  • The answer to the Universe... is 47

    11/19/2019 1:43:58 PM, by MAYBEMIDLIFE20

    Okay, now if you are reading this, it might be because you are thinking, "no, the answer to life, the universe, and everything is 42!" And let me assure you, I love Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy too, and so on most days I would of course agree! However, for today, believe me, it's 47. You s... Read more

  • Eye of the Tiger

    11/18/2019 2:24:36 PM, by MAYBEMIDLIFE20

    Today was my first strength training day, and I survived! I did an upper body routine and although I don't see the difference yet (apparently results aren't instant, who'd had thunk?) I felt the difference. When I say I felt the difference, I don't just mean physically either (although I'm sur... Read more

  • Hey Scale, wrong way!

    11/17/2019 10:57:56 AM, by MAYBEMIDLIFE20

    This morning my scale was broken... although it meant to say that I had lost 1.5 lbs, instead it said I had gained it. So I gave it a good talking to, negotiated with it, and even tried to offer it a bribe. However, it told me that the fact that I had cookies on hand to bribe it with was probably on... Read more

    11/15/2019 10:47:45 AM, by MAYBEMIDLIFE20

    I know that I'm not getting anywhere on this journey without a plan. So yesterday I sat down and created one! It is my new GPS - Getting Planned (with) Spark! So first part of my plan is to make sure that every meal contains one fruit or vegetable. I will also track what I eat (I was doing that... Read more

  • You wouldn't sniff toxic fumes... would you?

    11/14/2019 3:54:17 PM, by MAYBEMIDLIFE20

    I got to thinking today, why do we allow toxic things in? Why do we allow stuff to happen to us that we know is not good?!? If I had a barrel in front of me and I told someone, "if you open the barrel and smell what is inside, then it will destroy your life" Would they take a sniff? No, probably no... Read more

  • I Want to Be Healthy and Feel Super Comfortable in My Own Skin Again!

    11/13/2019 12:43:35 PM, by MELISSASHARRAH

    I have been feeling down and not well lately. I want to get back at it and track my food. Last time I did, one of my best friends (who is overweight) made fun of me for tracking and it bothered me so much that I became more sporadic and eventually stopped watching what I ate, It changed the landscap...

  • How do I deal with being Inside-Out?

    11/12/2019 8:35:38 PM, by MAYBEMIDLIFE20

    Have you ever watched Inside-Out? Personally, I love that movie. And because my son and I have it on our regular "watch" rotation, I was thinking about it today. If you don't know the movie, there are five main emotions living in everyone's head: Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger, and Disgust. And lately, I... Read more

  • On to the Winter Months

    11/8/2019 2:02:10 PM, by COONSY

    After my "mind shift" this summer, I got on the train to make things happen. I started getting my workouts in, and started getting back to tracking my eating. It's been a few months now, and my fitness has taken leaps and bounds (obviously still has a long ways to go though), and my weight has start... Read more
