Happy Friday!  It’s been a long and adventurous week for me. Life has kept me busy the past two weeks and I’ve been trying to change some of my habits.  There a lot of change happening among the chaos in my life. This week I’ve been trying to get my Garmin Fenix watch of unproductive fitness mode into something that made me feel better.  Do you pay attention to your heart rate zones when you work out?  I have always paid attention to my heart rate but never in the area, I should be working.  I always assumed that if… View Post

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.

Happy Friday!  It’s late on Friday but this is the first time I’ve been able to sit down and blog.  Maybe I should have got this post going when I up at 2 am this morning because I couldn’t sleep.  Anyway, I am here blogging about my Friday favorites. This week has been pretty good for me.  I managed to hit my workouts and did a double workout yesterday (because I missed my run on Wednesday).  All I have to say is, I’m too old for the double workouts, lol.  It’s something I use to do all the time but… View Post

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
