Baby is HERE!

Well, I’ve been out of the blogging world for a little over a month, but I feel like I have a decent reason.  I do not make any money to write this blog, so I am able to take time off to really adjust to becoming a family of four.  The newest addition joined ourContinue reading “Baby is HERE!”

5k Recap

The first 5k of the season is in the books.  This past Saturday, I participated in the Run to the Resurrection 5k held at a local church.  I’ve enjoyed this race over the last couple of years for a few reasons.  First, the entry fee is literally a few can goods or a small donation.Continue reading “5k Recap”

Gearing Up for a 5k

It’s that time again! Races have started and I haven’t made it to the starting line yet.  That is all going to change on April 4th!  I will be completing my first 5k of the season and my first time pushing Hailey in the stroller.  The past few years I have participated in the RunContinue reading “Gearing Up for a 5k”

Third Lenten Meal

Well, pasta dinners at our church are a little more busy this year, thus not allowing for much down time in the second hour to whip up my desired dinner dish. Although, I will not complain that I had to eat pasta this past week.  The pasta dinners raise money for the Kentucky Mission Trip thatContinue reading “Third Lenten Meal”

I miss running!

I’m sure my 6th grade self is absolutely kicking herself in the butt for even saying that phrase.  I joined the track team thinking I would enjoy running.  I was slow, but could run longer distances than most.  I was therefore slated to run the 400 and 800 (which now seems like a sprint distance).Continue reading “I miss running!”

T25 Alpha Complete

Ok, so I just completed week 5 of the T25 program this morning.  It was rough and I could quite honestly say that it needs to be repeated right away. However, I am going to continue on with the 2nd phase on Monday. The first few weeks I needed to modify with Tonia, but someContinue reading “T25 Alpha Complete”

Winter blues

Well, if you are like most people in the north, you are completely over the winter weather. It can be completely draining to constantly have to bundle up and stay in doors.  I hate being cooped up in the house, but with a 6 month old in the picture now, I don’t venture out justContinue reading “Winter blues”

Chocolate motivation

First of all, let me apologize for posting this blog at the start of Lent.  But, it is good information for after Easter! So, bookmark it for later! Seriously, chocolate is my motivation to workout and to workout hard!  I have a rather large sweet tooth and my choices have only become more refined asContinue reading “Chocolate motivation”

Pinterest Vortex

If you have a pinterest account, you can’t deny you’ve been sucked into a crazy different world.  There is anything you could possibly want on that site and I mean ANYTHING.  After just checking my account, I have 944 pins ranging from food, craft ideas, school activities, and of course fitness.  However, what happens withContinue reading “Pinterest Vortex”

The glorious mile!

It was the start of the second week in February 2015 and the weather was 48*…that’s right, I said 48 degrees!  When you are blessed with a day out of the norm, then you must capitalize as much as you can.  So, I had my mother-in-law and sister-in-law watch little Hailey to log some milesContinue reading “The glorious mile!”
