Recap Week 10/13-10/20/2017

It’s that time of the week where I disclose just how successful or unsuccessful I was in completing my goals.  This week definitely presented some challenges and wore me out to a new level of tired.  I actually believe I’m learning to function on less and less sleep.  I have always been an 8 hourContinue reading “Recap Week 10/13-10/20/2017”

Life Relapse

I could blame my lack of fitness, healthy eating, organization, and motivation on a whole slew of things.  I have two kids. My husbands commute time is 15 hours a week.  I work full time. But, the reality is, I just fell off the wagon.  I stopped waking up at 4:45am because my kids don’tContinue reading “Life Relapse”

The dreaded 4 letter word

D I E T. This may be the most over used word in the English dictionary. I personally have a lot of problems with the four letter word previously mentioned.  People in our society use food as punishment, rewards, stress relief, and boredom.  None of these uses are appropriate for people.  We need better solutions.Continue reading “The dreaded 4 letter word”

Hey everyone! Week 2, so far I’m sticking to my commitments!  Last week I mentioned I was no longer in school, which was taking up a large portion of my free time.  Well, for clarification I am not in school because I completed the course work for my Masters degree in Early Childhood Education.  MyContinue reading “Staying Focused”

In it for the long haul

Week 2 of 22 marathon training is in the bag.  Well, the miles are tracked on the shoes and I am feeling better.  I made sure to get up at the crack of dawn, literally we are watching the sun rise at the park, to complete my runs. So, here’s a quick recap of weekContinue reading “In it for the long haul”
