Join Me in a Running / PiYo Challenge!

Okay bloggie friends – this is way outside of my comfort zone to post about, but I’m so excited about this challenge that I wanted to throw it out there for all of you so you could hit me up if you want more information! I know a few of you asked me about the […]

WWW – Summertime Goals

7 weeks have passed since I wrote this post about my plantar fasciitis, and I’ve been trying really hard to take it easy and let that injury heal. Weekly chiropractor appointments for 4 weeks helped a TON, and scaling way back on activity and doing lots of stretching instead also helped a bunch. I’ve also been crazy […]

WWW – Plantar Fasciitis Edition

Well, I meant to write about this yesterday, but once again the day got away from me. We are training a new girl at work, so my time has been monopolized by helping her out and trying to get my own job done, which sadly leaves very little time for blog reading/writing. I MISS YOU […]

Thoughts on My First 21 Day Fix

This doesn’t get easier – you get stronger. (quoted from BeachBody coach Autumn Calabrese during one of her 21 Day Fix workouts) I am SO behind on blogging lately. I have a multitude of posts I want to sit down and take the time to write out well, but work has been insanely busy & my […]

Fit2B and #21DayFix in Bullet Points!

I’m trying not to write much about the 21 Day Fix and Fit2B programs that I am currently doing until the end of the month when I can give a good synopsis of them, but people have written me with quite a few questions already, so here are a few bullet points in the meantime! Fit2B Fit2B (which […]

WWW – What Motivates Me?

First off, I’m tired of writing monthly fitness posts that basically say I gave up again, I failed again, I put my health on the back burner again. My March goal results — not so great: Work on my diastasis recti. I completely failed at doing this. It took me a week to get signed up […]

The Monday Snapshot – Yearbook Edition

Well, it’s been 16 months since I was last motivated to make our 2011 and 2012 annual family yearbook photo albums. At fist I was just overwhelmed (since Harvey was born just 12 days into 2014), but then Jaime died, and I honestly just couldn’t deal with all the photos. It’s hard to think “this was […]

WWW – February Fitness Check-In

Well, as usual the month is flying by! As I did a workout with the kids this morning (it’s my day off), I decided I should write a quick post to keep me on track and accountable! Mental Health: Take a page from my Mom’s book – slow & steady wins the race. I’m doing well […]

January Recap + Fitness Goals for February 2015

During the first week of January, I wrote this post about my health & fitness goals for the month. Isn’t it amazing how the days and weeks just fly by in retrospect (for example, this was supposed to post yesterday, oops!)? It really is about all of the little choices. I find myself getting on […]

WWW – January 2015 Goals

I won’t call these New Year’s Resolutions, because really, this is just another month in my journey to live a healthier life. With that being said, Harvey is turning one on Monday (how in the world is that possible?!), and I AM ready to step it up and feel great in my body again, so […]

WWW – 2014 Year End Recap

I hope to find the time tomorrow to write a post about what 2014 has meant to me on a much larger scale than fitness, but since this started as a weight loss blog just over 5 years ago, I figured it was as good a time as any to write my traditional Weekly Wednesday […]

WWW – Pre-Christmas Vacation Trip

I didn’t write a Weekly Wednesday Weigh-in post last week since I’m in a holding pattern until Harvey’s first birthday next month, but I figured a pre-vacation check-in was in order to keep me accountable for the last couple weeks of the year! We will be on vacation from the 19th-29th, and I really want to […]

WWW – Post Thanksgiving Binge Week

So I’m sick, again. Strep throat this time (not the recurring, horrible full body illness I’ve been having the last few months, thank God), but still, I am over this! Yesterday I felt like death & like I had razor blades in my throat. It’s like my body cannot handle a few days of drinking and […]

WWW – Kids Edition

So I honestly had no intentions of writing a post today because I’m pretty much in a holding pattern in the high 150s for now, and that’s pretty boring to write about. 🙂 Then this morning, Stella was digging through the closet in the guest bedroom for a toy and found my yoga mat. She […]

MILF Challenge Wrap Up – 9 Months Postpartum

Well, I’ve finished my 6 week workout challenge to myself, and overall I’m pretty happy with how I did. Progress, not perfection, right? 😉 Here were my goals: Keep tracking my food on MyFitnessPal at least 6 days a week. (85% of the time) I tracked 27/42 – 64% of the time (plus some half days where […]

WWW – DietBet results

Remember my post about Putting My Money Where the Scale Is? I’d call that a mixed bag of a challenge for me. My thoughts… It was motivating to spend $35 and want to win my money back and then some. Apparently 1/3 of people “win” challenges on average. I really wanted to be one of those people. […]

WWW – Post Vacation Check-In

I knew that traveling with my husband to his childhood stomping grounds would mean a weekend that REVOLVED around food, but I think I underestimated just how strong those childhood memories and food associations were! Fresh made fudge at The Fudgery (where his grandma used to take him as a kid and he actually recognized the worker […]

WWW Check-In: 8.5 Months Postpartum

Well, I’m 2 weeks 1 day into my 4 week DietBet weight loss challenge and 3.5 weeks into my 6 week MILF workout challenge, and things aren’t looking so hot for me to hit my weight loss goal. It’s possible, but not probable. Starting Weight: 160.4 Current Weight: 157.4 Goal Weight: 154.0 Yes, it looks like I’m almost […]

WWW…er…Another MILF Post?

I might be going back to WWW instead of MILF (Weekly Wednesday Weigh-Ins vs. Mom in Love with Fitness) for the titles of these posts. I dunno. Thoughts? I just have a hard time wrapping my mind around the new MILF acronym instead of the old one. 🙂 ***** At any rate, I just wanted […]

Putting My Money where the Scale is

I feel like my posts are jumping all over the place lately, but I suppose that’s because my life is a little busy, a little nuts, a lot happy, and a little sad… and my writing reflects that. At any rate, thanks for sticking with me through the ups and downs. 10 days in, I’m […]

MILF Check-In: 7.5 Months Postpartum

Well, somehow I got off schedule from writing my monthly fitness updates, but I’m happy to report that I’m still at it and seeing results on the scale! I started both pregnancies at 161# (I’m 5’8″ tall), and I saw 156.6# on the scale this morning! My goal is to get down to 150#, and I’m […]

MILF Check-In: 6.5 Months Postpartum

On a whim this morning I decided to change the name of my weight loss/fitness check-in posts. For nearly 5 years I’ve called them WWW (Weekly Wednesday Weigh-ins), but I rarely write these on Wednesdays anymore, and I want the focus to be more on total body fitness than just weight and weight loss, so […]

Weight Loss Check-In: 6 Months Postpartum

May 1, 2013: 161# – 4w pregnant January 12: 181.2# – 40w4d pregnant January 15: 166.5# – 3d postpartum February 12: 163.9# – 1m postpartum March 12: 162.3# – 2m postpartum March 15: My SIL died. I eat & drink my way through grief. April 12: 167.0# – 3m postpartum May 12: 168.3#​ – 4m postpartum June 12: […]

WWW – 5 Months Postpartum

Phew, how has another month already passed us by? It’s a great reminder when it comes to physical health and fitness that time will pass us by whether we are making healthy decisions or not, and we might as well keep inching our way towards our goals instead of away from them. May 1, 2013: […]

WWW – Upping My Step Count

Okay, I know I said I was focusing on nutrition more than exercise this month, but so far it’s been a little bit the opposite. My daily average step count has gone from 3,000 to 9,000. That’s a big change! I even had a 20k step day last weekend, which crushed my previous record of […]
