Weighing in

Monday is my weigh in day. Although I feel like I’ve been focused, the scale isn’t showing that.  In fact, it’s just the opposite.  I’ve been recording everything in my fitness pal but, I need to regroup, take a step back and dive in to kick some ass. Abs aren’t made in the gym; they…

Feel the pain and settle into it

  Yesterday I decided to hit the trail with my sidekick. This was my first time with the baby in the jogging stroller. I think she liked it 🙂 It was my first run since my session with Rob on Wednesday and I still hurt!  I started off pretty good, but not too far into…

I had a meltdown

People keep saying they love my blog because I’m real. I’m saying exactly what’s happening, being honest and it’s what they have gone through or are going through. I felt pretty badass after my training yesterday…but then, I had a meltdown. We all do. We’re all entitled. It wasn’t pretty. Thank you for the phone/text…

Be Persistent

Be patient. Things worth having, are worth waiting for. Good things come to those who wait. These are things I have to tell myself on an all-day everyday basis.  I’ll have a really great day…got a good workout in, ate great, and the scale doesn’t reflect that the next day. Duh, it takes more than…

Fresh is best

Today I hit up Costco and Shoprite to stock my kitchen with healthy stuff. After all, we don’t eat well if it’s not readily available right?  I focus on our favorites and add a few extra things into the mix (to try or get reacquainted with).  If it’s here, not only will I eat it…

Good enough for me

It makes sense that my mom is a regular topic in my blog. We didn’t have a perfect relationship but, now that she’s gone (or anyone that’s no longer in your life) you tend to reflect back on only the good moments and feelings; forgetting or covering (with rosy glasses) that the bad ever happened…

Music makes me happy

I had a hard time getting motivated this weekend.  I completely wasted my Saturday and I know that’s okay, but still.  I’m not feeling the greatest my allergies are kicking my butt, and the baby has been miserable for days, poor thing.  Pretty much the only way she isn’t upset is if I’m holding her….

Jump now, think later

I had the most fun evening tonight.  I met a friend to get some cool pics for my blog and website.  We wanted to capture my badass vibe, I am so excited. I can’t wait to see! I did some pics of just myself for fun one other time. There’s something to be said for…

Balance

Some days we can accomplish everything we set out to do…some days we snuggle our little loves until they fall asleep.  The laundry and dishes can wait. Please follow and like us:

No (more) cake for you!

I eat when I’m hungry. I eat when I’m happy.  I eat when I’m sad, depressed, or angry. Today all my siblings and their families assembled at my house to welcome the newest addition.  My adorable new nephew Maxwell.  I believe this is the first time since just after my mom passed away, that we…
