I need to get serious about my health before it's too late!
Wednesday, July 01, 2020      5 comments

I had my annual blood work done on Monday. My A1C (diabetes indicator) is usually well within healthy range. This time it is 5.8. Anything between 5.7 and 6.4 is considered pre-diabetes. It's also reversible with diet and exercise. My over all c... Read more

I think part of my motivation problem is keep deprivation. I am currently tracking my kids' daily activities and nighttime behaviors to see if I can spot a pattern on the days they fight me and on the days the go to bed on time. Then, I'll devel... Read more
Need a reward system.
Friday, October 11, 2019      3 comments

I think the reason I am losing interest is because my initial rewards have been recieved (new workout clothes, sense of accomplishment, etc.). So, one, I need to change my workout so that I feel like it's a new accomplishment. And two, I need to... Read more

I can feel myself starting to fall off the wagon like I've done so many times in the past. The difference between now and then is I'm still here. I'm blogging about it. I'm researching new workouts to try on YouTube. I'm making new playlists for... Read more
Who supports me?
Saturday, October 05, 2019      3 comments

While my husband is very supportive, I must say it's my 7 yr old, 3 yr old, and 18 month old boys who I find most supportive. My 1 year old works out with me. My 3 yr old occasionally works out with me but also enjoys finding me music and workou... Read more

I am really enjoying the family walks. My 3 year old did get a little rambunctious, but it was worth it. It's great bonding time too.... Read more

I'm tackling my fitness goals fairly well for the most part. I do have days where it's a struggle, but I at least do something active. My food goals are more fair than good, but they're not bad. I could improve on some of my choices, uts a work ... Read more

Last Sunday, we took the kids to a nature park and walked the easy trail. Today, there was a block party/street festival in our town to celebrate a recently painted mural. It was about a mile from my house, so we walked there, walked around, and... Read more
Prompted blog
Friday, September 27, 2019      2 comments

So, the prompt I was given today was to talk about my no fail, pre-work out food. Its oatmeal. Plain and simple, single serving oatmeal. After my workout (at least after cardio) I'm ravenous. That's when I have my actual breakfast meal. Sometime... Read more
Mental Plateau?
Thursday, September 26, 2019      2 comments

Maybe I'm bored with my workouts. Maybe that's why I just dialed it in again. I can find a new routine. But that does not explain my lapse in nutrition. I need to take time and sort my head before I fall off track again.... Read more
Rough couple of days, but back on track.
Wednesday, September 25, 2019      3 comments

I missed everything yesterday. I barely tracked, I skipped my workout, and I just plain didn't feel like doing this yesterday. The day before, I was only half committed. Typically, a day like yesterday would have been enough for me to just quit ... Read more

Monday, September 23, 2019      3 comments

My blog prompt is to describe how I'm feeling today in 5 words or less. I don't know how to explain it, I just feel off. I did my workout this morning, really tried to keep up and not fall back to the jog in place. I did pretty well, felt pretty... Read more

What does health mean to you?
Thursday, September 19, 2019      1 comments

To me, health means being able play with my kids for longer than a minute without getting winded. It means not suffering from extra, preventable back pain. It means not getting sick easily because of poor nutrition. It means managing my fibromya... Read more
