I had a good 5k race on Sunday. I beat my previous Pr by almost 4 minutes! It was an unexpected race. I only found out about it the week before, so even though I've been running I wasn't exactly training for it. I felt pretty good about my tim... Read more
Month ending results and goals
Sunday, November 01, 2015      9 comments

I'm not going to go into a lot of detail about last month because it wasn't the best. It wasn't the worst either, I just wasn't very focused. I lost 1lb. That puts me at 141lbs, which puts me at a healthy Bmi now! These last 2 weeks have bee... Read more
Feeling grateful

I have jumped right into my training. I know I have a little over 6 months till my half marathon, but I'm so excited! I've never been the girl that hates working out. I've enjoyed it since I was a little kid. I get that from my dad. He was and... Read more

I never thought I'd utter those words. I never thought I could go more then 3 miles at a time! In 193 days I will be doing my first half marathon!!! When I told my boyfriend that I wanted to sign up for it he said " I don't think you should do ... Read more
A fun weekend

My little city has so much things to do. It only has 12,000 people, and there are kid friendly things to do every weekend! I lived in Orlando Florida for 8 years and there's lots to do there too, but it requires a good chunk of change and dea... Read more
The stay at home mom struggle
Wednesday, October 14, 2015      9 comments

I'm very grateful that I get to stay at home with my kiddos. I worked full time in retail until my youngest was born July 31st 2014. It was hard because retail schedules are not set, not even for managers. I worked 8am to 5, or 11am to 8pm, or 2... Read more
Pushing myself a little bit
Wednesday, October 07, 2015      9 comments

The first part of my day started badly yesterday, and it was all because of a little bug. Yep, a bug started a day of self criticism. It's a long and boring story that I don't really want to re-hash because it's pretty silly that anyone would... Read more
A better month
Thursday, October 01, 2015      9 comments

Maybe it's because it's my favorite season now or maybe it's because my extra weight doesn't seem so end of the world bad, but I'm feeling pretty happy. My progress was not shockingly wonderful, but it was still in a positive direction so I'm ... Read more
Time for an upgrade!

We went on a beautiful family hike yesterday. I think the boys really enjoyed it, and it's one of my favorite places that I've ever been. We brought my jogging stroller that I use almost daily because my other stroller is really only good on ... Read more

I have decided that hiking with my boys is the best kind of therapy for when I'm feeling insecure, or having a low self-esteem day. My oldest Jack l... Read more
Feel like wearing a paper bag on my head
Wednesday, September 16, 2015      11 comments

I'm having yet another low self-esteem days. They kinda creep on me and ruin a perfectly good mood. I sometimes don't know where the self doubt comes from. There wasn't a particular incident that sparked it. I just feel ugly and fat. 😕 I don... Read more
A realization

I just realized today that I have lost 33lbs of the 45 that I gained during my pregnancy! Most days I feel like my progress is not remarkable or noticable, but I came across some old doctor visit paperwork and my weight was 176lbs a week befor... Read more
My fitbit is awesome!
Thursday, September 10, 2015      6 comments

I got my fitbit chargehr on Saturday and I'm loving it! I hit my first 10k steps today and got to see a little happy face appear on the screen. It made me smile. It's like getting a gold star on a school paper. I thought before I got the fit... Read more
Is this week over yet?
Thursday, September 03, 2015      3 comments

This has been a long week! It actually started on Saturday so maybe thats why. My mom had to have surgery for a fallen bladder, so on Saturday my aunt was going to come to her house and stay over night and bring her to St. Louis on Sunday. (... Read more
