Slower can be better.

Working out after a long day of sitting.

Sunday, July 26, 2015      10 comments

We made it in 12/13 hours, due to the time change. I stayed in calorie range which isn't easy for me sitting in a car for that long. Grazing becomes very easy! We got here and chatted with the in-laws and the aunties. Then, the girls and I... Read more

Getting ready for vacation.

Saturday, July 25, 2015      11 comments

We will be leaving in the wee hours of the morning for our annual 13 hour drive to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. My husband's family lives there and it will be one of our last trips there. His mom and stepdad are renting out their place to pr... Read more

Level 21

Friday, July 24, 2015      8 comments

I didn't realize that I moved up a level. I am now on Level 21! Yay! That's a lot of points, but I have many more to earn. The levels are similar to life. I've lived a lot, but I have a lot more to live! I'm hoping that this new lifestyle ... Read more

Kids are getting older, but I am "aging younger."

Tuesday, July 21, 2015      14 comments

My third child, and oldest son, is 17 today. He is a great kid, if I do say so. It's a little strange when your kids keep getting older. My four are now 15, 17, almost 19, and 20. It seems like yesterday they were all little and then I blinked ... Read more

A day of changes.

Saturday, July 18, 2015      12 comments

It's been a GREAT day! I changed up my running routine today! My younger daughter and I did a poker run to benefit the trails at the local public lake. She rode her horse as part of the trail ride and I ran it. It was between 7 and 8 miles aroun... Read more

My daughter revamped me!

Wednesday, July 15, 2015      14 comments

My oldest daughter, the one getting her BS in Exercise Science and minoring in Coaching and Nutrition, revamped me. Well not exactly me, but my eating and exercise. She looked at my past week nutrition log and told me that I need to eat mor... Read more

An excuse TO exercise!

Tuesday, July 14, 2015      11 comments

It's so easy to make an excuse not to exercise. (Especially in the beginning of this journey before the fitness bug bites!) I'm too tired. It's too late. It's too early. It's too hot. It's to cold. I don't want to wash my hair. I don't want to s... Read more

Crazy is as crazy does!

Monday, July 13, 2015      14 comments

I had a negative crazy right after my last post. I jumped off that same wagon I wrote about. It's really amazing how one can gain 5 lbs. overnight, but it takes a week or so to get it back off. Not really fair if you ask me! Read more

There is only one "real" finish line.

Saturday, July 11, 2015      18 comments

Recently, I've realized that there is really only one "real" finish line on this journey. There is never a time when one can simply "let it all go." If we do, we may end up back at the starting line and sometimes worse off than before. So w... Read more

Do you change the goal?

Thursday, July 09, 2015      7 comments

I have consistently been in my range of being between 140 -145 lbs. for most of the summer. I had one day of over, but it was down the next. It seems like I almost get to that 140 lbs. and then it goes back up a pound or two. Obviously, my... Read more

Playing the number game.

Wednesday, July 08, 2015      11 comments

My husband had the day off. I'm a teacher and he works retail so we rarely have the same days off so it was nice. He wanted me to try a burger joint in one of our favorite older neighborhoods. The restaurant has been there "forever," I'd just n... Read more

Wow, I feel honored to be MOD.

Tuesday, July 07, 2015      16 comments

I have to fess up. When I saw the congrats on my wall about being MOD, I had no idea what it was. I tried looking it up on one of those sites that explain texting abbreviations! Read more

A sermon and a reflection.

Sunday, July 05, 2015      12 comments

I was a greeter at church this morning. The pastor is new and had a very powerful sermon on morality. She is retired Army and her husband is still enlisted. Her sermon was about how the moral aspect of the Bible is sometimes "changed" to ... Read more

Happy Independence Day!

Saturday, July 04, 2015      8 comments

As we celebrate this 4th of July/Independence Day, may we be grateful for all of the freedoms that we have. Freedom of religion (which is the discussion I referred to yesterday), freedom of speech, freedom of expression, etc. Today may we enjoy... Read more
