Fit Check 3/20/18


Another week has went by and I am getting closer to my goal of getting healthier. I am eating better and exercising more. I am enjoying being outside with my kids. My weight is not coming down anymore yet but I know it will. I just have to keep on and I will. I am stuck between 178 and 180. It can be frustrating and discouraging but I know it will come off as long as I am persistent.

Hi all!! Well I am feeling loads better then last week. I finally got over the bug that my lovely daughter gave me. Now I just got to get back up and exercised again. Which…actually is not as hard as I thought it would be. My body is sort of craving to exercise. So now I will give it what it wants. Till next week!!Screenshot_2018-03-13-04-47-51.png

Morning all!! Been an interesting week. My daughter got a cold which automatically meant I ended up with it. She’s almost over it but mine is still lingering…yay 😦  I’ll be ok in a couple of days, Until then I can’t do too much in the way of exercising because my body needs the energy to recover. So for the next couple days I’ll bee getting some rest and allow myself to heal up. See you all next week!!


Little devil on my shoulder…


Today I almost gave in to going to get a steak biscuit from Bojangles even after I already had a good  breakfast. I know that does not sound like a lot but when you are trying to get back to a healthier you it is. So that little devil 😈on my shoulder was sitting there from the time I dropped the kids off at their activities until I passed Bojangles on the road. I actually turned in and was in the drive through line and I stopped. I started thinking about how far I have come. How I was able to get out with my daughter and kick the soccer ball and jump rope. And you know what…I pulled out of the drive through line and came home. I am not going down that road again. Not when I have gained me back. So I just sent that little devil back where he belonged.

Good morning everyone!!! Hope your week is going great and you are at least trying to be healthy as I am 🙂   Not much has changed from last week except I’ve started getting out and kicking the soccer ball around with my daughter. It feels amazing. I’m glad I can do it with no major issues and she enjoys me being out with her as well. It’s great mom and daughter time….she’s 13 so it’s perfect! It’s a win, win situation for both of us.

As I told you all last week, about my wrist, my doctor stated that there is not any nerve damage  or other issues. He stated that the test was not 100 % indicative of no problems that is just eliminated any issues from the arm up to my neck. He stated he is 99% positive that I have carpal tunnel as well as a “trigger thumb”. So I have been scheduled for a surgery on April 12 to get those fixed. Hopefully that will alleviate the pain.



Fit Check 2/20/18


G’morning all!! Here is another fit check update. When coming out of the winter season it can be especially hard to trim the pounds off. You’ve got used to eating for winter sustainability and to convert over to eating different for the warmer months is hard. Especially when it is still dreary, cold, and rainy. Well, I am getting back into the swing of things and have started eating less starchy foods (breads, pastas…etc) and getting back to eating more fresh foods (fresh fruits and vegetables). I do eat fruits and vegetables in the winter but they really are not as appealing as the heavier foods. As it warms up, I will be able to get out more again and actually go hiking and trailing. I’ll be able to get out on my bike and ride around with my kids in the fresh air too. Here’s to spring…glad you are just around the corner 🙂

I know I said last week I’d give an update about my wrist, so here it is. Apparently there are no nerve issues (yay) but then what is causing the pain? I have an appointment this Thursday to discuss that with my Dr. We’ll find out more info at that point.
