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
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
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
How is everyone out there? I mean, really – how are you? I hope you’re healthy, I hope you’re practicing self-care and gratitude. I hope you’re not hoarding all of the toilet paper and that you’re washing your hands. If you’re reading this blog, I probably know you personally and I have no doubt that you’re… Continue reading What a week!
Good morning! I know it’s been a while since I’ve written anything. The last six weeks have been insane. My youngest daughter and son-in-law bought a house which needed some renovations before they were able to move in. We finally got them moved in last weekend. Work has also been extremely busy. I have been… Continue reading MM100 – COMPLETED!
It’s been a while since I’ve written a post. Life has been really busy since the holidays. I thought that things would slow down, but nope. Busy is good, though; it keeps my mind occupied during these winter months. The last couple of weekends we’ve had snow, ice, and frigid temperatures, so it’s good to… Continue reading Keeping It Real
I just completed week 4 of my second round of LIIFT4, a Beachbody on Demand workout program that combines strength training and HIIT exercises. I’m noticing some changes, and I’m pretty excited about it. I can definitely see some changes in my arms and shoulders! My core is getting stronger, although it doesn’t seem to… Continue reading Progress, not perfection
Guys, I finished the 8-week LIIFT4 program this week! I went from using baby 2-lb weights to making it through “shred” weeks 7 and 8 without dying! Other than training for my running milestones, this is the first time I’ve gone through an entire workout program from start to finish and I can’t even tell… Continue reading LIIFT4 Program – COMPLETED!
Good morning! It’s late April, but that didn’t stop Mother Nature from sending us some cold, rainy (and snowy for some) weather yesterday. It’s still quite cold this morning, but it’s supposed to be sunny and 60 later today, so I may be able to get a good dose of Vitamin D yet this weekend.… Continue reading Week 1 of LIIFT4
I’m getting to the end of Phase 1 of Lean & Strong, y’all! If you haven’t been following along, I’m doing an experiment to try to find out what has been causing my weight gain, since I’ve gained about 20 pounds over the last several years. I feel like overall I live a pretty healthy… Continue reading Phase 1 of Lean & Strong – the end is near!
