Confession:  I’ve run more in the past nine days than I have in past two months.  I’ve had the baby and things haven’t seemed to be working right since then.  It’s been a struggle for me and I know it’s the culmination of a lot of different things, but I know my running form definitely has something to do with it. Before I always said I didn’t have time to run so it went on the back burner. There’s some truth in that so that’s why I wanted to do this #streakingwiththeCoolKids thing. Basically, I have to run or walk… View Post

Okay, so maybe it wasn’t my first time but this was the first time I’ve meal prepped this hard since early pregnancy.  But the good thing is I’m prepared for the week and I don’t have much to worry about. Gosh, I don’t remember it being so much work but I’ve been out of practice.  I still need to get back in the habit.  Plus, I made some more “complicated” meals than normal. I tried to prep most of the meals so I wouldn’t have anything to worry about.  I’m trying to stay on track and be focused on a… View Post

The future is calling and it’s time to start making plans. A new day is on the horizon and I am really trying to start something new.  I need the change because things are just not good.  My attitude hasn’t been positive.  I’ve stopped planning, therefore, I’ve stopped setting goals. I’ve been slacking off a bit lately and I haven’t felt like myself.  I’ve been down.  I haven’t had a positive outlook on much.  I guess I’ve just been lost. Normally, I’m really hard on myself for these things, but after a deep discussion yesterday I won’t be like that.… View Post

I hope all the mommas out there had a good Mother’s Day  I wanted to make my return to blogging yesterday, but my site had something else in mind.  This morning things are back to normal (a bit) so I’m ready to dive in. Motherhood has changed my life completely and I feel like I keep saying the same things over and over. I don’t think I’m that interesting or what I do is anything special. But there are people who still follow me, who are interested in the journey, and just want to know. I need to share those… View Post

Yesterday was a crazy, long day for me so I didn’t have a chance to get my blog post done.  I hope you don’t mind that I’m posting a Friday Five on a Saturday.  I hope everyone had a great week.  I’ve been watching the Olympics all week long and it’s great to see people going after their dreams.  It’s been a good week so I have no complaints.  I ate my prepped meals and really enjoyed what we had for dinner.  See, it does pay to try something new. On to my list.  I got some new stuff to… View Post
