With each new day comes new strength and new thoughts

“With each new day comes new strength and new thoughts.” – Eleanor Roosevelt Happy Wednesday! (I know it’s late) I’ve had a super productive week so far, and its only Wednesday! Still clearing the clutter – it’s a daily process, one thing at a time. I’m getting myself organized, and can see the signs of…

I got mucky

Today was the day! I completed the MS Muck Fest 2016 as part of a great group of ladies, go #teamdirtygirls! It was so much fun! Finally got a proper shower (the hoses at the finish line just don’t do it!), and can relic in my day.  I am wiped out! I was really anxious;…

Clearing the Clutter

I was up so early, I got tons done before the kids even got out of bed.  I was over 2,000 steps by 7:30! I love hitting the ground running. I did however, have some grumpy kids this morning.  They were tired, they are loving camp but are completely worn out by the end of…

Motivation Monday

Thank you Rob for kicking my butt today, exactly what I needed! Super sweaty, tough stuff! I was dreading my training all day today, to be honest.  It was so hot out, I have the mud run on Saturday, I have other stuff to do.  I can think of a million excuses! But, I had…

Clarity. Focus. Goals.

I’ve been on a little bit of a hiatus this past week.  Life got crazy.  But here I am.   Today was Father’s Day, we spent the day at the beach.  It was fun, the kids love it.  I love the beach, I always have, it’s so peaceful; we’re all in a better place while…

The Skinny – Week 2

  I’m down a pound! I’ll take it. It wasn’t a bad week, but I didn’t work out as much as I should have.  It was the last week of school for the big kids, lots of activities going on and they had half days which threw me off a little.  The week coming up,…

“Spasta” – Spaghetti squash “pasta”

I made an amazing dinner last night. My kids love pasta, I do too but I’m always looking for replacements to get more bang for my calorie buck. I see so many recipes for spaghetti squash but honestly, I’ve tried making it before and I wasn’t a fan. I think it was the texture.  But…

Here’s the Skinny – Week 1

Since I am just starting this weekly weigh in with you, I’ll incorporate it into my blog post so it’s fun for all of us  🙂 I weigh in on Monday’s purposely to not let myself get too carried away on the weekends. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t. I do believe I’ve truly turned…

Strong Girl Walking

So all last week I had yesterday looming over my head.  We buried my mom’s ashes with my dad. I thought it would bring closure but it didn’t, or doesn’t feel like it. I kind of feel like time is the only thing that will help. I had started out the week good, but it…
