I know it’s not the first Five Things Friday I’ve done but I’m starting over to keep them a bit more organized.  I never know what to call them anyway so a number system will be best. It’s been a long week and I’m pretty sure I’m long overdue for a rest day. It will come. My new project is Mom Works It Out. So I started a new blog about being a mom and every other part of lifestyle besides the health and fitness stuff. I fully understand that you are here because you heard our weight loss story.… View Post

I’ve always said the best way to achieve your goals is to write those goals down and revisit them from time to time.  This will be my place to share my goals with you and you will hopefully keep me accountable to some point.  Things in my life are different now and it’s weird how quickly things can change.  In the past, I would have been talking about collecting states on my marathon quest or that new distance I was hoping to tackle.

Welcome to this week’s Five Things Friday. I don’t know if I just have too much stuff going on right now (aka stress) or what but I can’t seem to focus on writing a blog post right now.

I always want to create content that you can gain something from but today it’s not happening. Instead you’re going to learn about… View Post

This week has been all about getting back into a routine. All the running has kind of messed up my schedule because I’ve had to recover and do it all over again. Guess what y’all? I’m on a two weekend break from running. That means I’m able to get my strength training in. Too bad it’s totally making me hate push ups. Willie told me that you should change your workout up every 2 months or something like that so your body doesn’t get use to it. I really wasn’t feeling it this morning, but I went. That means I… View Post

It’s been really busy during this holiday season.  I feel like we’re in a constant moving state.  Last night, Willie said he missed meal prepping!  Isn’t that kind of funny?  He told me so I immediately wanted to spend some time meal prepping when we got home. I made some ground chicken chili in the crockpot last night. I totally forgot about it until I woke up this morning to go to gym. Those crockpots are amazing things. I think everyone should have one. I think I’m going to start making more stuff in the crock pot so that I… View Post
