Pretty good day

 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…

Time to Step Up My Game

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…

Tired Legs!!!

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…

Doing good

I did day 2 of my training this afternoon. It was cool, cloudy & blustery but I did it. It was not as easy for some reason but I felt fo great afterwards. I had a good dinner & a snack free evening. My. 2nd this week. I won't be able to jog tomorrow because it is suppose to rain, but the weather should be better by the weekend, I even got the bike out of the basement so I can start riding for my cross training days. I am so hoping to see the scale go down this week.

That Girl...

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…

Crappy weather

The weather held me back from training. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to run. I did get in my Upper Body Fix DVD but I am really excited to run again. I have to get in 3 training sessions in each week & it looks positive for tomorrow. My eating has been good the last few days too.

I Actually Cook

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 ...…

Day One Of Five

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…

Did Easter Really Happen Already?

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…

My first training

Yesterday I started training for my upcoming 5k. I am following a training program for people like me. One's who never ran before. It's a 7 week training program. It says to do these sessions 3 days a week and if able, cross train 3 days. So yesterday I decided to start this party. It went really well. Better than expected. Today I did my 21 Day Fix DVD. I am planning to ride my bike for my cross training days, but I need to pick up a pass for the trail. Until I do, I will continue with 21 Day… Continue

Easter Miracles

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…

first week back at it

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…

Get the Party Started!

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:

27I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift…

Happy Easter

I decided on a few small changes to help myself get to my healthy weight. Several of you have been so inspirational to me. Yesterday I went to Kohl's and purchased one pair do Fila capri's to wear for my 5k. Did I like how they looked? Hell no, but I want to wear the gear so I feel I can complete this. I got my running shoes the other day and they feel good. If the weather cooperates I hope to begin training. I found a non-App training schedule I found on line called run like a Mother. It just… Continue
