Where does it go?

It doesn't seem that long ago we were living in New York with two little girls going to dance class. Now we are on our fifth year of living in New Mexico. Avery has joined the Navy and two weeks after graduation is in boot camp. Today marks her fifth day. Riley has a job and is learning to drive. People use to say all the time how fast time flies. Enjoy it now. But Doug and I find ourselves shaking our heads and picturing these little girls.

Day 7 of 60 day challenge

Went for a hike with Nana and Sophie and my sweet Doug. He froze his ears off. The wind was coming off the mountains and was chilly to say the least. Brrrrr. I have been doing alright with this challenge. Not great. It's hard to work full time support my family and still find time for me to workout. I've worked out four out of the seven days. The added challenge is having a very small budget for food. So far I've been able to make this work.

Day one of my 60 day challenge

Lots has happened since my last post and I'm sorry for not writing for quite some time. June 19th my mom committed suicide. I found out the first day of my vacation heading out there. Our summer was spent with my awesome beautiful sisters Leah and Megan going thru my mom and dads house( we lost our dad Nov. 30th to complications to leukemia) I got back from that had one week and then time to go back to work. A month later shingles, three weeks later a head cold, last two weeks a viral infection that landed in the right side of my face. Another part of all of this was knowing I would not be getting the money our nana set aside for us girls so I made the decision to go into a debt management group. Closed all my credit cards. Talk about scary. But all of this leads me to my 60 day Holiday challenge. I started doing Beachbody in January after dad passed to take charge of my weight issue and get healthy. With it I've lost 13 pounds and 13 inches.

Today is November 1st. The day after candy day, I mean Halloween. My biggest focus today was not to go face first into the candy bowl. Chocolate is my crack. I made it thru and for the next 60 days with a group of like minded people we are focusing on healthy choices and habits. We are doing this with a workout plan and eating plan designed for each of us.  I'll be telling you a bit about it in this blog amount other things but I believe keeping a daily blog with be like a journal and help keep me on track. So no candy no chocolate cupcake at the baby shower and a healthy salad at dinner out today.

I have a confession

I have been doing great with my exercise plan. I have it all mapped out for the month and following it. What I haven't been doing really well is tracking and measuring my food and the scale reflects it. The best ab exercise is to walk away from the frig and you can't outwork what you put in your mouth. So I have re- dedicated myself to the diet plan and containers. I'll let you know how it goes when I check back in next week.

I have Vacation ADD

I'm not sure where to begin. I want to hike. I want to workout. I want to quilt. I want to clean. I want to read. I want to plan. I want to watch movies. I can't think of what to do first. Good thing I have two more days of work to figure it out. huh?

Hi Again

Sorry it has been so long since I have posted on here. My computer hard drive took a dump and I just got it fixed. So since my last post I have been doing the 21 day fix since February. So far I am down 12.5 pounds and 13 inches. The biggest part of this for me has been the eating. That is why this week I am running a 5 day Clean Eating and Water challenge. No sugar. No white flour, bread or rice. No processed foods and half your body weight in ounces of water daily. I  have never peed so much. After the first day it was note to self "buy more toilet paper". I may even get brave and put my before and after photos on here. Bye for now. Come get healthy with me.
