Last week our family went on a vacation to Virginia Beach and this week I’ve spent much of the time thinking about how much I want to go back on vacation. We had a wonderful time. It was great to get away with our adult children and their spouses. We relaxed on the beach and… Continue reading This is 55.
Good morning, readers! It’s been a quiet, relaxing Sunday morning. I slept in until 7:00 a.m., enjoyed a cup of coffee while reading a book. I then baked some muffins, watched an episode of a new series on Netflix, The Chair (highly recommend!) and went outside with the dogs for a bit because it looks… Continue reading Not later, not someday, NOW
Today is going to feel like summer and I’m trying really hard to focus on tasks, but GAH it’s hard. I just want to sit outside and soak up the rays. I plan on taking a lunch break outside, though, and after the work day is over, I’ll be outside with a cool drink. Since… Continue reading 30-Day Challenge

On Sunday I finished my latest workout program, 9 Week Control Freak. This was probably the hardest workout program that I’ve done since starting Beachbody. So many burpees. So many renegade rows. So much tabata cardio. My favorite workout of the week was tabata cardio. I loved doing the short bursts of cardio moves, followed… Continue reading 9 Week Control Freak Review
Wow, I’ve almost made it through a whole month of 75 Hard. Well, I guess I did make it through the month of February, but February is a short month, so I don’t feel like I’m quite there. It has gone by pretty quickly. Although I’m over 1/3 of the way through the program, I… Continue reading Day 29 of 75 Hard
Hello, everyone! It’s day 21 of the 75 Hard program and I also completed week one of Phase 3 of 9 Week Control Freak and wow, I’m feeling AMAZING. 9WCF is kicking my ass – it has been the toughest program I think I’ve ever done, and I’ve done some pretty tough programs. I am… Continue reading New daily routine
Hello and happy Sunday! How’s the weather where you’re at? We’ve had some very cold temperatures and some additional snow, which we definitely didn’t need. Today is day 14 of the 75 Hard program and I am really amazed that I’m still sticking with it. When I wake up each morning and see the weather… Continue reading Yes, you can work out in below zero weather.
