See this image largerSee this image largerI'm a working baseball mom in Nebraska who is refusing to grab fast food - even if I had time after leaving work and picking up kids before getting to the game...here's my salad to go that I made 12 hours ago (some assembly required) in 36° weather with snow flurries - play ball!See this image largerMy son is safe and home from his first prom and his first driving bout with Spring weather...usually is tornadoes...Mother Nature is drunk, or hangry!See this image largerBecause sometimes you have to remind yourself that you dont HAVE to, you GET to...I feel a blog coming on...after grocery shopping, shower and laundry started lol!See this image largerWalk done...getting me clean and less stinky then tackling this apartment...my boys will be super excited about a cleaning day! :) Working out = energy sometimes - yay yo that today!See this image largerI teeter in and out of the 160s...this is this morning. I leave for a trip for business tomorrow...that's always a challenge because there isn't much activity and theres no home cooking but for today I'm going to be happy with being in the 160s! Happy Wednesday all!See this image largerFood prepping for the week...gotta feel better...gotta do better!See this image largerSomething clicked, went to the gym, felt it in my soul that I was doing it for me, loved it! 1 hour Zumba, 575 calories burned, moved tail (and hips a lot), did it for me, did it with me, feel great! Goodnight all!See this image largerIts 82°, sunny with no humidity here today! We dont get days like this often in Nebraska. Got the boys up and out to play at a park for a bit then to my sisters for pool time. Keeping on track with my yogurt! :) Tonight we get to take supper to my sister from another mister (my psuedo sister/super amazing friend) and hang with her and her family. I'm making supper so its spaghetti - easy and not unhealthy! Yay!See this image larger"Forgive yourself but adjust your habits." Good advice in health and life. Zumba in...feeling great, looking tired (cause I am! :) ) Happy Sunday all!See this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerThis one spoke to me a lot today... I have goals and future plans but I always do my best to remember that life is happening right now and I'm not doing justice to my life if I'm not living life right now. So while I plan and work on my goals I do not just live for those future plans and goals, I live in the now...if I didn't, I'd miss the amazingness of life happening right now. Happy Sunday all!See this image largerHad A LOT to do today but wanted to get some sort of activity in. My best guy friend and my best Cas friend (they are engaged! :) ) live about 6 blocks from me...so when she asked if I wanted to go for a walk AND said she would wait for me to get done with all my stuff it was a no brainer! The pace is slow because we had their 2 dogs with us so there were multiple puppy potty breaks but it was still a great walk! I'll take it!See this image largerSo I got home from work and went straight to my apartment gym after changing so I couldn't talk myself out of doing my C25K Wk1Day2 - 5 second rule! Then there was the TMI moments that started instantly that I could have easily given in and given up but I didn't...so take that universe! Test my determination and I'll prove you wrong! The numbers arent pretty but the 'runs' were pretty good for me! :)See this image largerI'm not sure what is wrong with me today but I'm actually looking forward to 'running' tonight! Ok, ok...not the running but the accomplishment of getting another day or 2 of my C25K done...that's what im excited about! Heres to bravery, courage, and commitment! Happy Wednesday all!See this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerI'm a cardio girl because I can see the calories that I've burned...somedays I cant do cardio so I have to do something else. I'm really scared of strength and weight training because of the knee and back but I had to do something so I did an at home workout with weights for upper body and strength training for the lower body. My arms are jello and I'm tired and somehow these numbers make me sad. I really have to work on my perspective!See this image largerMy Garmin wont sync with my Sparkpeople...hasn't since 1:15 p.m. yesterday...but I did work out today! I didnt want to but told my youngest we would do C25K Week 2 Day 2...so we did...went at a slower pace and even slower at the end (my in shape call player tuckered out! Lol) but it's something! Side note...this includes the leisurely walk to the track and back which is about .50 miles.See this image largerSee this image larger#C25K week 2 day 3 done! I took these pictures and I look horribly bloated and much rounded than normal...I'm blaming the outfit! :) Not phasing me today, I've got #goals !See this image largerGuys!!! I've been tracking everything, working out like I've planned (even if modified here and there), and do my several small meals plan only since August 1st...but look!!! The scale hasn't budged for me at all in months!! Yay! Happy Monday all!See this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerFrom Kindergarten roundup to his last 1st day in elementary school (5th grade)...I'd say we've both changed quite a bit! I was 5 years younger and about 30lbs lighter but I still wear the same color scheme apparently! :) A few more wrinkles and a few more lbs but I'm still living life and happy!See this image largerSee this image largerWe smile through the tears (and clearly exhausted faces) because we know it's not goodbye, its see you soon. Said goodbye to my baby girl today as she heads back for her sophmore year of college 1315 miles away in the morning. If you're so inclined and have extra prayers and/or good safe vibes if you can send them her way I'd really appreciate it! Goodnight allSee this image largerSee this image largerFor a workout I didnt think I put much effort into...See this image largerGood Friday morning all! This starts off with... "but most of all, I hope you find.." The last word that is cut off is "you" Build a life that, even while building, inspires you!See this image largerSee this image largerBack from mini vacation number 1 which was Chicago. I'm up 1.4 lbs but that's likely mostly soda weight...I'm actually pretty happy they it wasnt more. There was a lot of walking and not seriously horrible choices but still more eating out and a bit of adult beverages. Have another mini vacation to Boston in a week and a half...we will see how much better I do there!! Hope everyone has had a fantastic weekend!!See this image largerSee this image largerGood morning all! I hope this morning finds you safe and happy!See this image largerI've been on vacation and had an amazing time..ok so my food wasnt the best but also not the worst...my memories from this trip are amazing! Happy Tuesday all!See this image largerBusy Saturday morning motivation! Make it a great one all!See this image largerI ❤ fall in Nebraska!See this image largerThat's a yummy 312 calories right there!See this image largerMy sissy and me (I'm on the right)... we have never looked alike but we have hearts that are alike. She was always struggling to get up to 100 lbs, I was always struggling to lose weight. She has made it to a healthy weight with age and I'm working on it. Shes always one of my biggest cheerleaders. I love this picture because this shows just what a great time we are having... work in progress and all! Family vacation has been amazing!See this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerIn case you needed a reminder to live yourself and believe in yourself...you talk to you 100% of the time, what you say to you is what you become...make it the most amazing, powerful and uplifting talk that there is!See this image largerSee this image largerWorking on Health goals... Left side is me (in hurricane Sandy) in 2012 - best health shape of my life. Right is 2018 - not the worst health shape of my life but have goals to get back to healthier Let's do this!See this image largerSee this image largerHappy Sunday all! It's our family's first Thanksgiving celebration today...this is my attire. true... this is pretty much the goal of all of us in this family! Make it a great one all!See this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerThese treats have been sitting here for days (the files too! 🤣) and I'm just not interested. I am happy about that but mentally I'm a little sad...the brain is a powerful thing but I'm diverting my attention before I convince myself I want to eat them...cause I really don't!See this image largerSee this image largerGood morning all! Let's talk about our joys today!! 1st joy for me today is that I got one more winter snow!! I love snow as long as its between the months of December and February! 😂 2nd joy for me today is that I get to hang out with my daughter today! Yay!! 3rd joy is that I get to go to one of my most amazing friends houses tonight and put on a nail bar!! Woot woot!!! I'm sure there will be more but we will start with 3 for me. What are some of your joys today?!See this image larger(1 comments)See this image largerThat was a fun class...love shaking my hips some day - makes me feel like I can dance...I can't but it makes me feel like I can lol!See this image largerWorking g to remember my Tuesday morning truths... Make it a great one all!!See this image largerI'm not sure I could describe most of my adult life more accurately! I'm working on it now but this is hilarious!See this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerI've made my water goal 3 of 4 days (I started 4 days ago)...I'm tired, I'm watching the game, I'm drinking the rest of my water...I call it a win. 😴🙃👍💦See this image larger6:30 a.m. wake up on Saturday for the gym...no not a workout for me but a basketball game for my 11 year old...then we cross the street for baseball training...at least I'll have lots of water in today! Good morning all!See this image largerTraveling for business this week - it's always a challenge to get some exercise in and eat right but it can be done...especially when the payoff is learning and experiencing so much!! Travel. Learn. Grow. Happy Tuesday all!See this image largerPITCHERS AND CATCHERS REPORT TODAY!!!! So starts baseball season and I couldnt be happier! This means nicer weather is coming, passion starts playing out in over 160 games (per team), I spend way too much time running from field to field, salads in jars, lots of water, and serious fun! I wouldnt trade it!!See this image largerHeres to working on killing my water goal...Monday and Tuesday were a success!! Happy {snowy} Wednesday all!See this image largerThis Monday through Friday I took 2.8lbs of the 6.4 lbs gained while traveling off AND I hit my water goals every day! Success!! (Dont mind the awful handwriting!)See this image largerSpent 12 hours yesterday organizing and cleaning while jamming to music. Outside a blizzard was raging, inside I was a happy girl getting things done! This morning it sure looks calmer outside although I hear that driving to my sons basketball game may be tricky...so i just played in bed for a while and enjoyed the sun shining in...so peaceful. Now up and at em! Gotta get some more things done before leaving 2 hours early for this basketball game! Have a great day all!See this image largerWeighed in today after being shut in my apt for 2 days (yay blizzard!) and it being that wonderful week of the month and I'm only up .2 of a lb. I'm good with that. Smashed my water goals for a full week and have added in a few at home workouts. Slow and steady wins the race! BTW - that's the forecast for this week - watch out! We may get up to 23°!! Ugh!! I even like winter but I'm over it! Good news - I'm still alive to gripe about it!See this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerNeeded some booty wurk in my life this morning! My booty needs wurk but my booty doesnt know how to wurk!! I got a great ab workout watching myself trying to dance tho!! Happy Tuesday all!!See this image largerTonight the only treadmill available at my apt gym was the one that shuts off after 20 minutes...seriously, theres no way around it...so I decided to do a slower pace but inclines...holy cow!!! I'm hot and sweaty (and rain is in my eye lol) but i got a hell of a workout in in 40 minutes (yeah I restarted and went right back to the incline I was on!) Man this is gonna hurt tomorrow!See this image largerIsn't it funny how some days you feel pretty danged good and some days you feel like a can of busted biscuits?! Today I feel pretty good but this gif that someone (better at that stuff than me) made was too funny not to share! Make it a great day all!See this image largerIts Pi day!!! This is my 4 year reigning champion (Pi contest) but this year studying Pi has been tough with the hundred other responsibilities hed had. As of last night he was up to 161 spaces..good luck bubby!! Side note - we have pie for pi day at work today. I have the info in my tracker for 1/2 a piece and I'm excited about it. It's also cardio workout day and somehow that makes me happy (wth?!?!)...shaping up to be a happy and busy day! Enjoy your day - make it a great one!See this image largerBack in the 160s...barely 😂🤣 I worked out more this week than I have in a long time and I kept my food pretty good and I lost .2 of a lb...it happens. I also had popcorn as a snack with my Pi champion son last night so maybe I'm puffy...doesnt matter...I know how I did this week and I'm happy! Make it a great Friday all!!See this image largerSometimes nothing beats a Saturday night date night in am empty gym by yourself! I swear finding Bringing Sexy Back on Netflix is the best thing for me - positive and motivational. I get that most Americans like drama and games but I don't...I like encouragement and results. I love this show. I'm starting to get reacquainted with cardio again - I dont love it just yet! 😂See this image largerSee this image largerIts rainy outside (or supposed to be - let's be real I havent looked but it's not sunny)...my bed is comfy...my quilt is warm...this old house is in TV (I live in an apartment so I'm not really picking up tips)...and I dont feel like moving. I guess I'll get up, make my bed, open my shades and get something done today! Happy Saturday all!!See this image largerSee this image largerMy youngest son had baseball an hour after I get off work...there was ZERO possibility we would make it on time (40 min drive from work to home and another 30/40 from home to the fields and theres all sorts of construction to fill potholes)...I rush in to our place to use the RR and possibly change and he stops me and says - "I dont know if you have time but if so I made you a sandwich"... That's the best damned sandwich because he thought of me...my heart is full!See this image largerSee this image largerSee this image larger'Day off' glam! Ok ok so I'm working from home for a bit and then it's on to cleaning and laundry because it's back out of town in just over a week! My life gets crazy busy sometimes but I wouldnt trade it. Up a little weight wise from the last trip but nothing I cant handle. Just gotta have focus. :) Make it a great one all!See this image largerSee this image largerFinally!!! A swimsuit that has arms and its SUPER cute!!! Yayayayay!!See this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerHead shots by my baby girl!(1 comments)See this image largerFriendly reminder! Eating food, any food, does not make you bad...burning down an orphanage (or any other inhabited building or one not meant to be burned down) will likely put you on the naughty list! *edited due to language - message still the same! I'll be digging in deeper to the Intuitive Eating concepts and mentality in my blogs soon...wanna know more on my take then stay tuned and let's chat!See this image largerOh Mark Twain - you knew your stuff! If you can't do all of these today - just remember that life is short - forgiveness is for you not those you forgive (and just because you forgive doesn't mean you allow access to you again) - laughing adds life to your years - and if you've hurt no one, then anything that has made you smile is not to be regretted! Time to blog! Happy Sunday all!See this image largerIt's true, you know. The only thing you are in total control of is you...also you are in complete control of you! How awesome! Be kind to you today. Choose joy. Believe in you!See this image largerThe choice is always yours...what amazing power and freedom that is!See this image largerGo make the choices...beyond food, beyond what workout you hate the least...that may be part of life but there is so much beyond that. Go choose to LIVE life, not just exist in it!See this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerRead that one more time... If we dont repair what motivates us to make decisions that make us feel awful, even if we mask them for some time, they will reappear. Take care of you from within and amazing things happen.See this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerStop waiting until the number on the scale is what you have decided is the perfect number, until those 'goal' jeans fit or until you can run that PR. Life doesnt wait. Celebrate where you are today. Celebrate when you take the next step in your journey. Dont wait until everything (or anything) is perfect as the moment is perfect now and we arent promised another. Happy Monday all!See this image largerI can't promise you that life will go as planned, but I can promise you it will go as it should...See this image largerSunrises promise fresh starts and new beginnings - they are my favoriteSee this image largerSo many times I thought I had made it through the storm...now I know!
