Still moving, but a bit slower.

Still a little sore from boot camp, but it's a good sore. Last nights was cancelled due to the weather and another event being held where we meet. So I went to see an HBO movie about child abuse. It is called Broken Child and the director was in... Read more
Boot camp kicked my butt!

I've been trying to get to boot camp for two weeks now and I finally made it last night. It's free and put on by the downtown YMCA. A friend of mine is the instructor so the oldest daughter, a friend of hers went with me. I thought I was "i... Read more

Today is the funeral for Officer Kerrie Orozco. She was killed while serving a warrant last week. She died the day before her baby daughter was to be released from the NICU. She was born prematurely. I have been watching the funeral on an... Read more

Today I woke up a bit sore from running with my girls last night, but I woke up. My legs are stiff, but I have legs. My arms aren't super muscular, but I have both arms. I may not be the smartest person, but my brain is "whole." Life isn't al... Read more

Tomorrow is Memorial Day where we honor those that have given the ultimate sacrifice for this country. I have many family members and friends that were in the armed services. Every branch is represented in those people. I have nothing but the u... Read more

I can finally "breathe." It's been a very busy week! Cleaning, running errands, getting ready and hosting a graduation party has kept me hopping. Yesterday was the last day of the regular school year, for kids. I consider today the first ... Read more

I'll admit I've been struggling. I'm eating decent and getting exercise despite my crazy busy schedule. It's not my "normal" exercise nor is it at the same intensity, aka. no running. The weight keeps creeping on. I know my body is changi... Read more
Below calories as we cook!
Saturday, May 16, 2015      5 comments

Today was shopping and food prep. I am actually under calories for the day. We had pizza made with Naan bread for dinner and I'm still under. I need to do that again tomorrow! Maybe I'll get in a pattern and get back to the lower end of my wei... Read more
Gearing up for a big weekend.
Friday, May 15, 2015      9 comments

I like to say that my big weekend has something to do with running, but alas it is not. I have in-laws arriving today, cleaning and prep work on Saturday, a graduation blessing and party on Sunday, and a graduation ceremony on Monday. Lots... Read more
Mixed emotions on Mother's Day
Monday, May 11, 2015      15 comments

I didn't mention it yesterday, but it was eight years ago, on Mother's Day, that my Dad was called to his eternal home. Mother's Day was on the 13th that year, but Mother's Day always reminds me of the last moment I was with my Dad. I was t... Read more

I am a mom to four kids. I have been blessed by my kids. However, I respect those that have chosen not to have biological children and have chosen a different" parenthood." Happy Mother's Day to ALL mothers. Those with biological children, ... Read more
Just venting!

For the most part, I'm eating well and I always get at least 30 minutes of exercise a day. Many days it's closer to an hour. The numbers on the scale are going up and my clothes are getting smaller. For some reason I've retained a ton of water ... Read more
Gratitude

I decided to go for a run today. Maybe it was the nice weather, maybe it was I was running in a relay a week ago, maybe it was the thought that my friend ONEKIDSMOM was running in the Lincoln Marathon. (Someday I will run a 1/2 with her!) W... Read more
Good news

I haven't been able to run this week. Graduation planning, kids sporting events, honors banquet, family, and tutoring have kept me busy. The good news is that I think I'm finally done with the chiropractor! I have been feeling great with n... Read more
Tired

I did it! I mailed all of my daughters graduation announcements! Whew! I haven't been able to get to bed early, yet. Tonight we have an honors recognition to go to. I'm hoping it's not too late so that I can get to bed early. I hope to run ... Read more
