Wow, where did October go? It was such a busy month for us. We harvested the soybeans and just finished the corn. We had two birthdays, had a few days off of school, did lots and lots of cooking and went out for Halloween. But, the most impo... Read more

Saturday, October 02, 2010      2 comments

That is one of my favorite lines of Jillian's from the 30 Day Shred. I love it when I finish and we are ready to start the cool down and she says, "Unbelievable, UN. Believable." Makes me feel great about my accomplishment for the day. And f... Read more

So, September 3. I've shredded every day. I have NOT gone to bed on time at all yet, mainly because I am trying to finish a really good, but slow going book. The kids don't go back to school until next week (I'm in MN) so it really isn't so b... Read more

Thursday, September 02, 2010      3 comments

I haven't been around much for the last month. We were exceptionally busy and I sort of lost my way. We took a trip to Yellowstone National Park in August. It was AMAZING! I'd go back in a heartbeat. We did tons of hiking and I lost 6 pou... Read more

August Goals
Sunday, August 01, 2010      7 comments

I fizzled out in July. I started strong, did really well and by the end of the month most of my motivation and will power were gone. I'm going to redouble my efforts for August and see how I come out. My August goals are: 1- Get to bed... Read more

I think I slept well last night. But I am EXHAUSTED this morning. I need to come up with a plan for the day before it all slips away from me. That is the trouble with staying at home with the kids. If I don't get us organized and moving we w... Read more

It has been such an interesting weekend. Lots and lots of fun. But it didn't start out so great and it didn't end so great. But everything in the middle was awesome. Thursday I had spent the day getting us ready to head out of town. I w... Read more

I do my weigh ins on Monday and I had GREAT news this morning! I've lost another 2.5 pounds! Yay! I have the bikes loaded up in the truck to take the kids on a ride after tennis lessons in the morning. Now I won't have to rush to get that do... Read more

Friday, July 16, 2010      5 comments

And, boy, was today stressful! So I've typed and retyped this three times. It boils down to this: I have a cold and everything is 10x worse when I have a cold. And it didn't help that the two year old broke an expensive shade in the li... Read more

To Do List
Sunday, July 04, 2010      4 comments

I admit, I thought making a collage was kind of silly. Then I looked a couple of others. I liked them, they weren't silly at all. I decided I had to do one for myself (and to earn points on the FITS challenge). So at 10pm, armed with magazin... Read more

I am so sick of this. I know better. Really and truly, I do. So why, when I know I've already exceeded my calories for the day, do I reach for something more? Why, when I know a big glass of water will quench my "hunger," do I skip it in fav... Read more
