Monday Motivation & Giveaway

How was everyone's weekend?  I am just getting a chance to catch up between Hawaii, my family being in town and then Greg being gone a week for work.  Today is my first "normal" Monday in a month and it's feeling great to be back on track.  Nathan also started VBS today so I am down one kiddo which always makes things easier.  I am going to bust out this quick post and then go off and have some ...

Changing things up…

weight routine

In honor of Transformation Tuesday I thought I would talk about what happens when we aren't transforming....plateaus!  I have reached one.  In my blogging...in my creativity...in my exercise...in my eating.  I have become complacent in the areas that I don't want to be complacent in.   It's not an entirely bad place to be, in fact my routine is a fairly good one but it's not moving me forward in ...

Let’s go to Beach, each Let’s go get Away….

Naples 4

Hellooooo...Is anyone still out there?  I mean why read a blog when the person never posts on it anymore right?  I'm here, I'm here and I promise my silence has been warranted.  Greg and I left on our first ever vacation together since having Nathan.  Well since even before that because we never went anywhere while I was pregnant either.  So let's call it 5-6 years since we have travelled ...

Treat Yourself Tuesday

TYT6

Linking up today with Becky from Olives 'n Wine for a  Treat Yourself Tuesday post.  TYT has easily become one of my favorite link-ups to participate in because it's such a simple concept that we often overlook....it's ok to treat yourself!  Take time for yourself, indulge in a few extra things here and there, do things that make you happy...and do these things free of guilt because we all deserve ...

So what do I do next?

I wanted to write this post because one of the questions I get e-mailed about the most is...what did you do when you finished the 24 Day Challenge?  When I answer this question I normally start by asking what the person's goals are now that they have kick started their weight loss.  Do they want to lose more weight, more inches, gain muscle, increase their endurance, see more muscle ...

Meal Plan Monday- Detox edition

Holy smokes you guys...Valentine's Day + my birthday + plus a weekend + falling off the clean eating wagon= total stomach disaster!  I think I spent most of yesterday dragging myself along, wanting to sleep, and listening to my stomach talk to me.  Don't get me wrong, I had such an awesome time but I sure paid for it!  I will show you some of my indulgences on tomorrow's Treat Yourself ...

Thanks for the memories 2013

Whew...anyone else kind of glad all the holiday hoopla is over?  Don't get me wrong we had a WONDERFUL Christmas, but it sure exhausting playing Santa Claus.  I took a ton of photos on my real camera for once, but I'm just going to be honest here, I don't have the energy to go through them right now.  I'll keep the memories in my head, and the photos on my camera (until the day I have time to edit ...
