Hello, and happy inauguration day! It’s a new chapter in America, and I’m hoping that it’s going to be one filled with unity, hope, equality, and prosperity! Things are going well with my workouts and nutrition so far in 2021. I’m on week 3 of Phase 1 of 9 Week Control Freak. Week 3 is… Continue reading A mental Ironman
Good morning! I hope you’ve all had a nice weekend so far. Ours has been relaxing and uneventful. Luna got her first bath yesterday and did well with it. As she grows bigger, though, she’ll start going to the groomer for a bath just like her big sister, Kali. The two of them are getting… Continue reading Week 1 of 9WCF complete!
Today was day 1 of a new 9-week fitness program that I’m doing. The trainer, Autumn, told us today that throughout the program, she wants us to remember the mantra CTRL+ALT+DELETE – control our actions, alter our thinking, and delete negativity. I really loved the first day of the program and plan to do a… Continue reading CTRL+ALT+DELETE
Good morning! I just read through all of my 2020 posts and I’m so glad that I blogged about everything because it was a lot. When I first started writing about the pandemic back in March, none of us knew that this would be around for the rest of the year (and is STILL going… Continue reading Adios 2020!
Happy New Year’s Eve! We have no exciting celebration plans tonight. My husband and I will be eating pizza, drinking wine, and sitting in our PJ’s in front of the TV. We most likely won’t stay up until midnight. If COVID wasn’t still a thing, we might have gotten together with friends, but COVID is… Continue reading Our new family member
Today’s post was supposed to disclose our family “surprise“. We were planning on adopting a dog, but unfortunately, it didn’t work out. The dog didn’t get along with our dog, Kali. However, we are hopeful that we will find a dog that will fit in with our family. Stay tuned. Instead, I’ll talk about control.… Continue reading Control Freak
Yesterday I completed my latest workout program! It was a combination of two of my favorite Beachbody programs, LIIFT4 and 10 Rounds. The hybrid program was 4 weeks long, with six workouts a week. Each week I would have 4 lifting days from either LIIFT4 or 10 Rounds, and then 2 days of boxing from… Continue reading LIIFT4/10 Rounds Hybrid
Hello! I hope everyone out there had a nice Thanksgiving, although it probably wasn’t the usual celebration for most of us. We had a celebration the weekend before with just our two daughters and sons-in-law. On Thanksgiving day, the kids had a celebration with the in-laws, so it was just David and me and we… Continue reading Triple whammy
Yes, I’m still here. It feels a bit like the movie Groundhog Day, doesn’t it? Each day feels the same as the day before. The only time I leave the house is to go to work a couple of days out of the week, to the grocery store, and for my daily walks with our… Continue reading Pandemic Fatigue
Good morning! I hope you’ve had a good week. I admit, this week was challenging for me. Between feeling sad about losing Jasper, some issues at work, the continuing pandemic, and the upcoming election, I’ve been feeling stressed. I’ve been telling myself for years that I need to start meditating to calm my mind, but… Continue reading Unstress
