Happy Friday!  I’m starting something “new” on the blog called the Friday File.  I’ll be honest, it’s just the Friday Five but without the five.  The pressure to produce a list of the five things sometimes made me not want to do a weekly roundup. I feel like I’ve been hitting my stride this week in life, which means next week everything is going to fall apart.  I’m ok with that though.  I did some great things this week. If you haven’t listened to the podcast, you definitely should.  Having this podcast will add more content to the site and… View Post

Good afternoon, everyone!  I’m keeping my blogging streak alive.  I barely got it done yesterday, but I’m still blogging strong today.  This whole thing has me really excited and it’s really stretching my thought process for the blog.  There have been some days it’s been hard to come up with something to blog about but I’ve come through in the pinch.  I will only blog every day until the new year.  This is just an exercise is helping me get into the routine of blogging.  I will go back to this when I need to do it. It’s been a… View Post

I have declared this a non-running week and it sucks.  I’m already having a really awesome week so this just tops it off. I have a perfectly valid reason for not running this week, but it doesn’t make it any better.  My hip flexor is pretty torn up and I need it to heal.  I haven’t really run without pain since having the baby but it’s something that is manageable.  I thought I was hitting my running stride in December and then this happened. A couple of weeks ago I ran the Louisiana half marathon and the quarter marathon the day… View Post

The other day I did a Facebook Live to answer questions about weight loss and what not.  If you missed it, I’m sorry but you can go back to watch it.  Someone asked a question about my motivation to keep going and answered about beginning with the end in mind.  This got me thinking a little deeper about what motivates me to do what I do. I found my passions. It’s easy to be motivated when I found something that I love to do.  I fell in love with running and it gave me something to work towards.  Running gave… View Post

I haven’t really been talking about my meal prep on the blog lately. I know it’s bad because people want to know about the meal prep. I haven’t really talked about meal prep in a long time but that doesn’t mean I’m not doing it. Meal prep has become a little less high maintenance these days, but it’s still getting done. I’m not fancy. I don’t create recipes on my own. If I’m doing some creating, I’m just throwing stuff together we have in the fridge and making it work. There’s nothing creative happening in my kitchen. I know the… View Post
