No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Today was stormy and grey. Made me a lil lazy which is weird usually im the opposite . Anyway... I decided to get up and do a PiYo session. I did a 40 minute session and I finally pushed through a sequence Ive never been able to get through! YAY! Sweat was literally dripping on the floor when i was holding my poses. It was a really good session for me. I am feeling it everywhere.
After the PiYo I decided to get my turbofire in... I decided I would do a HIIT session just so I could…Continue
I got a fitbit from work a few months ago, but purposely waited to activate it after having the baby. I'm a bit of a techy nerd type person that loves a new gadget. I knew I wanted to use the excitement of a new device as some post-baby motivation. Even though I can't get back to the gym just yet, I decided to go ahead and get started with the fitbit now. A little extra incentive to get up and move even if it isn't formal exercise. I'm embarrassed to say that as of right now, I'm getting in…Continue
After I posted yesterday morning I rocked out a hard 3.46 miles in 65 minutes. My goal is 3.50 in 65 but I just could not get it yesterday. Trust me. I tried! I also worked out my legs and abs. They are tired today. It feels so good.
I fell prey to lunch with mom again. Who, by the way just found out her A1C (blood sugar) was a lot higher than the doctor wants. Things pretty much fell apart after lunch. I just ate. A lot. I know it was emotional eating about the…Continue
I ran into a lady who use to go to my church; and dang she looked good. She must have lost 40 to 50#s and looked amazing. Can I confess... I wanna be "That Girl". You know the girl. The girl you haven't seen in a while and when you do she looks completely different. Healthy and lean? Yeah, that Girl.
I just am so tired of "this girl". The overweight girl who can't find a thing to wear in the closet except for work scrubs. And at that, I don't even feel good about them. I just…Continue

Seriously ladies. I woke up feeling amazing today. Even though I only have one day of cleaner eating under my belt I can tell how much better I feel waking up today than I did yesterday. I couldn't wait to jump on here and let you all know. See how important you girls are to me!!! xoxox
To the surprise of my family, I can actually cook. Since my husband has been retired ... but working again; he has been home doing most all of the cooking ... OK .... ALL of the cooking. This week he has to take a later shift so I am in charge of the cooking. In the past, I would just go out or drive thru for our meals. But, remember that Menu I planned out on the weekend .... yeah that one ... I'm actually following it. I
ts only two days in, but so far I've been on track ...…Continue
I am starting a new twelve week program on Sunday which combines intuitive eating with good old fashioned portion control. Who would have thunk it? So for the next five days I am weighing everything and keeping a log of when I am hungry and why. This should help me determine how many good old fashioned fruits and vegetables I need in my life and when during the day I should be eating them. I am super excited!!!
So today was great. I really listened to my body and tried…Continue
I cannot believe how fast (yet how slow) these weeks have been going. All of a sudden it's April and Easter came and went! For those of you who have been reading some of this blog you'll know I gave up nearly everything for Lent (candy, baked goods, chips/pretzels, crackers, junk food, etc.). I give up something every year for Lent and usually by Easter all I want to do (and always succeed at) is eating EVERYTHING I gave up.
This year that did not happen at all. Crazy, I…Continue

As you all know, I have quite a complicated blended family. That leads to complicated family dynamics all the way around ~ including not speaking to my sister for over three years. Over the past few months we have been working on mending our ways and she has allowed me to become a huge part of my niece's and nephew's lives again. Although my sister was ill yesterday, she sent her husband and my niece and nephew to spend the day with us. It was the first holiday we have ever shared all…Continue
Did great trained every day including today. I got up early did my run then went to brunch with my bf and his family. Yesterday I got my bike out of storage and its currently at the shop getting new tubes, liners, front and rear flashers and a tune up for gears breaks etc. I'm actually really excited about riding and going some where instead of staying stationary. Also I did 9.75 miles on the bike thurs in 50 min so faster than I planned for which means I may finish this thing in under 2…Continue
Happy Resurrection Day! Praise God HE has risen.
Had a wonderful service last night at our church. We celebrated the "last supper" with a traditional Seder; followed by Communion as HE was our passover lamb.
John 14:27 says:
27“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift…
I wanted to wish everyone out there a happy and healthy Easter!
And for my 90 day friends I hope you are on your way. We have twelve full weeks left to rock this thang!
