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 ...

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 ...

What does January 1st mean to you?

24 day challenge results

I can remember this exact time last year so well.  I was struggling with my weight and making every excuse imaginable for why all those extra pounds were sticking to me from both pregnancies.  I thought I was eating healthy, I was counting calories, I was going to the gym when I had time...but it just HAD to be that my metabolism changed.  I couldn't think of any other reason why nothing was ...

Long Beach Half-Marathon Recap

Long Beach half 2013

I DID IT!!!!  October 13th 2013 I completed my first half marathon! I look at this photo of myself today and I don't even feel like it's really me in it, or that I was the one who actually ran the race yesterday.  It was such an adrenaline filled experience that it's hard to put myself back into the feelings of the day.  All I feel now is pain in my legs and a huge feeling of accomplishment, ...
