I’m like, “Hey kids I’m going to go for a run, wanna come with me?” They have both walked a 5k with me before, and the 8 year old ran/walked with me during the color run so it wasn’t asking too much. The three year old is psyched. The 8 year old... Read more

Yesterday I didn’t get my run in because it suddenly started hailing. Here’s what happened. Me and the kids are getting ready (I.e. I am getting the kids ready while they play, run away from me, tell me they’re hungry, get undressed for no appa... Read more

Went for a run. 25 minutes. I’ve been trying to get a run in once a week on Sundays. The rest of the week I’m working on my yoga challenge. (I’m on day 17 today!) And then I just try to get another two or three sessions of high impact during the... Read more

I just literally ate four pickles worth of spicy pickle spears. Dude seriously though, these Grillo’s pickles are seriously so good. They’re spicy but no... Read more

I’m getting a little bit better at understanding what some yoga terms mean. That’s a plus. Today we were trees. I am not a good tree. That’s why I’m a person now. So I’m going to bed. 😘 ... Read more

I went for a 30 minute run today. Saw three homeless dudes. And a squirrel. Did I mention Stockton sucks because there’s a severe lack of sidewalks? So one of the guys was pushing an overflowing cart of all of his worldly possessions, and he w... Read more

This week really flew by. Tomorrow is another Sunday. I’ve kept up my yoga challenge. Although to be fair I actually quit at day 5, took two days off, finally did day 5, then felt like I cheated and started over at day one again. Yesterday she h... Read more

Yesterday I drove out to Area 54 trying to do some rock hounding, have a good time with the kids. Radiator blew out. Got a sunburn. I woke up anxious thinking I need to run. I wrote a quick note in case anybody woke up, slipped outside and ran ... Read more

The last couple of days have been good, exercise wise. I’ve gotten insome HIIT, some low impact stuff, and four days of yoga. I’m excited about doing day 5. It’s nice because I get a chance to breathe and exist in my body. Which you would think ... Read more

I started this 30 day yoga challenge on YouTube last night. I’ve never done any yoga before and my core is super weak thanks to my giant babies. So i don’t know if I’ll finish it really but I’ll give it an honest effort because why not. Last wee... Read more

I ADORE fitnessblender’s workout videos on YouTube. I’m actually disappointed SparkPeople doesn’t offer some of them as an exercise. I just finished a 38 minute cardio workout and now my body feels energized and strong. I feel like going for a r... Read more
Calorie counting
Thursday, April 11, 2019      2 comments

I remember being in high school and thinking “what the heck even is a calorie!??” I don’t know if I thought it was some physical item you could touch, see, or taste... but I do know now that a calorie is a unit of energy. And there are lots of f... Read more
