Love the now

There is no place I’d rather be. Let go of what was. Don’t worry about what will be. Live in the moment and love every. Freaking. second. I’ve been off my morning ritual this week since we’ve gotten back from our trip.  I’m so open to new ideas…please feel free to contact me or post…

I am clear

This rain is really messing up my new morning ritual. I’ve so been enjoying sitting on the deck in the morning sun for a few minutes in solitude. Summer has been flying by, and I’ve been enjoying it so. We’ve had some relaxed days at the lake, fun at the beach, adventures – and plenty…

Tired of talking? I am!

I am so ready for change/action. I’ve been floundering for weeks, distracted. Talking about eating right, working out etc. with very little result. I was afraid to make a move, take a chance. I was starting to feel defeated. It’s time to make a change. Whenever I need inspiration I hit the Google. I’ll search…

Get comfortable with being uncomfortable

  Ever kick yourself for not jumping at the chance to do something? Then, only to wait and take the opportunity next time it presents itself – if it does? I learned my lesson too many times. The job you were too scared to take? The potential friends you could’ve made but lacked the nerve…

Cruise Control

Every week, in fact every day, I have the opportunity to start fresh. I started out the week great last week and then as the week went on my food choices went downhill.  9 times out of 10 my day starts off great, as the day goes on things may slowly decline. Everyday stresses get…

Weighing in on kicking ass – Take 2 Week 1- And that’s a wrap!

  I have to laugh at myself because of the title…yeah it’s a retake. Off to an excellent start! Feeling refreshed mind, body, and soul; I am down another pound this week. I’m pleased with that and think the week ahead will be even better.  Bringing my two week total to six pounds! And hit…

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…

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,…

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…
