Wow, it’s the last day of January 2021, guys! Here in Iowa, we are once again dealing with more snow. It’s been a really snowy winter. I’m thankful that I don’t have to commute every day to work right now and can just stay indoors where it’s safe and warm, although there are a couple… Continue reading Let’s do this!
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!
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

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
Guys, I finished #mbf today! The three weeks just flew by! I loved this program! It was challenging, but not so much that I felt like I couldn’t do it. Here was the workout schedule which combined using weights for strength training and cardio: Mondays – Lower Body Burn. Megan, the trainer, loves asymmetrical exercises,… Continue reading #mbf review
Good morning! I hope you’ve had a great weekend so far. It’s been really hot here over the last several days; we’re talking over 100 degrees with the heat index, but as I’ve said many times, I’ll take the hot weather over wintery weather any day! Today is the last day of my staycation. Because… Continue reading 7-day Gratitude Challenge
Good morning! We had a wonderful day yesterday. We had a belated Father’s Day celebration with the kids. David scored some IPA and we had one last fun day with our blow-up pool, which has too many holes to repair. Sad face. The dogs enjoyed the pool as well! Today is another rest day for… Continue reading Review of Barre Blend
Good morning and happy Father’s Day to all of the wonderful dads out there! It’s David’s weekend to work, so we’ll be celebrating next weekend with the kids. Has anyone been out and about since all of the COVID restrictions have been lifted? I’m still really nervous about going out, other than to work and… Continue reading Better Together
