I never know where to start

I never know where to start so I’ve been avoiding my blog altogether. I have plans for the blog but I just don’t have the time to execute them. Well, I don’t think I’ve been managing my time correctly when I do have the time. I guess I’m trying to add things back gradually.

First I was trying to get back to working out, then dropping some weight and then getting back to teaching my cycle classes. Now might be time for me to get back to working on the blog. I’m really ready to get back to it and I want to provide valuable information to all of you.

Motherhood has been something special. There are moments that I don’t want to miss. There are things I look forward to that I never thought I would brighten my day. Everything kind of means something now. Some things are quite easy and other things are a real struggle (like trying to get my sweet baby to sleep in the pack and play or the crib).

My blogging may have decreased here but my Instagram has become my blog. I kind of track of my daily life going on there.

I guess this would be a good time to set some goals for myself:

1. I want to take the time to blog every day. I may not get something posted every day but I want to at least try.

2. I need to stop being so hard on myself.  I find myself getting frustrated when I go for a run and I think it’s holding me back.  I’m always preaching don’t compare yourself to others or be better than you were yesterday which are things that I really mean.  But I have to admit, I haven’t been the most positive lately.  I have to remember I’m on a different level.

3. I need to get on my fundraising game for Action for Healthy Kids.  I’ve kind of put it on the back burner because I’ve been focused on other things.  I need to suck it up and raise the most money I can for such a great organization.

4. I want to have a more positive attitude.  I have to admit that I’ve been struggling with postpartum depression which has made this journey just a tiny bit more difficult.

When they say you can’t

When they say you can’t

When they say you can’t, I think you can. Please fight back and do what you want to do! I’ve been a little stressed and it’s been reflected on the blog because I’ve been a little busy.  I’ve been busy because they said I couldn’t.  When I got pregnant people told me I wouldn’t work out.  People told me I wouldn’t run.  People told me I couldn’t travel. People told me I wouldn’t do a lot of things. When they said I couldn’t, that lit a fire under my butt. My baby is almost 4 months old and things have… View Post

Three things to overcome during weight loss journey

Three things to overcome during weight loss journey

Anyone who has tried to lose weight knows the process isn’t easy. It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to lose 30 pounds or 130 pounds. There are just some things that will get your frustrated along the way. I’m currently trying to lose my pregnancy weight so this is something that is fresh on my mind and I thought it would be a great topic to talk about on the blog. Problem #1: Avoiding the social eating. Everyone wants to celebrate with food. Birthdays, holidays, because it’s Monday…or it’s Taco Tuesday, means there’s always some social event to celebrate WITH… View Post

Race Recap: Run Houston! Minute Maid Park

Race Recap: Run Houston! Minute Maid Park

Yesterday I ran the Run Houston Minute Maid Park 10K in Houston. This was a race I was planning to do but didn’t sign up for until this week.  I’m being cautious about all of this stuff, but these races are a good excuse to throw myself into mileage.  I will use time as an excuse not to run longer so the races for me to make it until the end.  This race was the second in the race series.  I’ve never run any of these races but I’ll get to that later. I woke up early to squeeze into… View Post

Veggie tots, what’s the deal?

Veggie tots, what’s the deal?

If you follow me on Instagram stories (you totally should, username is webeatfat1) you have seen I’ve been trying out the veggie tots. I thought I should take one for the team so you don’t have to spend $3.50 if you don’t want to take the chance. Don’t worry, I’m going to answer the big question: I tried two versions of the veggie tots: broccoli and cauliflower veggie tots. FYI: These are not adult foods. This is a way for adults to sneak veggies to their kids and think nothing about it. I’m not saying adults won’t enjoy them, but… View Post
