Seriously!? It has been almost SIX months since my last post. I knew it had been a while but not that long. Time seriously flies!

Life has been good since February. Of course, we are on summer break and school starts back in less than a month (woohoo.) We are taking a family vacation pretty soon. I am so excited as I have NEVER taken an entire week off from work. EVER!

Workouts have been good (for the last 27 days.) I am participating in this 90 day challenge and am very happy with myself thus far. I have stuck to my workouts so would like to think I have now formed a habit. The true test will come when we are on vacation. I have to work out while I am gone but I have faith in myself I can and will do it!!

We celebrated my son's birthday today at a wakeboarding park. It was fun but baby, was it hot!!

Tomorrow we are headed to Hurricane Harbor. Two full days of fun in the sun and I'm just praying we don't get sick as that typically happens.

I hope all is well with everyone. (if anyone even sticks around and reads this.)

I won't even say I hope to blog soon but I sure do hope to blog soon!

Weekly Workouts

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

Anyone having any parties? Going to any parties? Making any yummy snacks?

I believe we are having some ribs, wings, and some dips .. I can't wait.

I wanted to start blogging my weekly workouts. I have been doing very well with my workouts and this is a way to sorta keep up with them and for accountability.

I wanted to workout today but I have worked out everyday for the last 7-8 days and my body needed to rest. I am going on week SEVEN of this cold/allergy/sinus crap so I completely rested today.

Sunday: REST

Monday: 60 min cardio and arm burnout

Tuesday: 30 min cardio and legs

Wednesday: 60 min cardio and leg burnout

Thursday: 30 min cardio and arms

Friday: 60 min cardio, abs

Saturday: 30 min cardio and legs

I hope to add a couple more ab days ... but I will see. I'm not sure what my work schedule is for the week yet so this may be changed up a bit.

Have a good Sunday!

GO FALCONS!! I'm a fan for the day! :)

Life Recap

Man ... last time I posted was September!! Not good and not what I wanted for this here ole blog.

Once again, I hope to get back to a regularly scheduled blog post. At least once a week, if not more.

Life lately .. well, we had Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas. I also took my boys to Las Vegas in November. They loved it and we had a lot of fun. I know some may judge or criticize that I took them there but it's one of my favorite places and believe it or not there is tons of things for kids to do. We didn't stay out really late but we had a lot of fun and I will most likely be taking them back soon. This was also their first plane ride.

We are also finally moving out of my parents house. This is good for them and us. :) I am so grateful to them and they'll never know how appreciative we are and I just home I am able to repay them for everything one day.

My workouts are on point! Not to brag but I am so proud of myself. One day back in October it finally clicked in my brain and I have been at it ever since. I have embraced weight training and absolutely love it. I have some fitness goals that I am not ready to share just yet, to accomplish by end of year, and I am super excited.

My diet is still something I struggle with daily. I have been preparing meals on Sunday though. I have found that my problem is that I get tired of eating the same thing all week. I need to not make quite so much of one thing or prepare twice a week instead of doing it all on Sundays. This would be challenging during the week but I think it would work better for me, personally.

I hope everyone is doing great if anyone reads this anymore!

Baby Steps

Well Well ...Hello September!

It didn't take me over a month to write a new post. Baby steps.

What I've been up to, you ask?

Getting my kids in the groove of school...they are adjusting well and liking it here. I am so happy and relieved and surprised.

Working ... I switched positions and am loving it!!

Working out .. started a new 30 day program / challenge yesterday. The support on social media is amazing! I cannot wait to see my results.

My job started to do goal sessions every month. We do monthly, 1 year, 3 year, ,and someday. This has been amazing for me!! We do personal and business. One of my personal/business was to read a self improvement book. I chose "You're a Badass." Can't wait to get all into it.

Did you have a good Labor Day weekend? We went to my girlfriend's house. It was nice to relax. And eat good food. Truth be told I felt like complete shit when I got back. I was so grateful my challenge started yesterday..

I am so ready for fall .. pumpkins, cinnamon, football, fall colors, soups, chili, Hallmark movies!! Eeeek!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful evening!

On To The Next ...

And here we are .. many, many days since my last post. I tell you .. I give major props to those who work full time (job or Stay-at-home mama) and find time in your day to religiously blog. I thank you! It is no easy task so major props to you!! And I thoroughly enjoy reading them. :)

Anyways .. another school year starts tomorrow .. say wha?!?! I cannot believe summer is over. Someone said something to me the other day and I was like, "NO WAY!" But it's true! So, apparently from birth to 18 years of age, you only have 1,000 weeks with your children...what the what?! It is true....crazy when you say it like that! Anyways, no matter how hard the last two years have been on me after my divorce, I truly feel I have never been closer to my kiddos. I am going to enjoy and embrace and teach and love them every single minute of every single day.

Living back at home is going good. We hit a bit of a rough patch but doing much better now. It is definitely an adjustment for everyone but I'm just thankful we had the opportunity to "go back home." And truth be told, we probably should have done it a year ago and we would have been much better off! Oh well ... live and learn!

Workouts .. well .. let's just say here's to high hopes that our routine will be much better beginning tomorrow! I do much better with structure!!

Here are my goals for the week:

Walk/Run 2 miles and 30 minute circuit and 15 minute ab circuit

Walk/Run 2 miles and Barbell Blast class (if I make it back in town in time due to training) or I'll do the 30 minute circuit

Walk/Run 2 miles and Barre Class

Walk/Run 2 miles and 30 minute circuit and 15 minute ab circuit

Walk/Run 2 miles and Turbo Kick class .. BOOM!

Crossfit Bootcamp workout


 I hope everyone has a wonderful week and if you have kiddos heading back to school I hope they have a wonderful week as well!!
