Hey there! Yes, I’m still here! As I talked about in my last post, I’m starting a new job next week, so things have been a bit hectic. Despite what’s going on in my life, though, the one thing that has remained consistent is exercise. Since I started working out in the mornings, it has… Continue reading 100 Workouts
Happy holidays! I hope your days have been merry and bright! This post finds me in a MUCH better place, both physically and mentally. When I last posted, I was not doing so well, but I saw my medical provider and was put on a hormone patch and let me tell you, the difference has… Continue reading Habit building
I finished my current workout program yesterday, LIIFT4! I’ve done this program many times in the past; I’ve lost count. I just love it so much and it’s one of those programs that I never get bored with.

It’s holiday season and I’m kinda feeling like the Grinch. Over the last couple of months, I just haven’t felt like myself. I blame menopause,… Continue reading The new me

Please excuse my long absence, but let me assure you that everything is fine. Well, sort of. The last time I blogged, I was getting to ready to have surgery and our youngest daughter was going to have surgery as well. Also during that time, my employer was asking everyone to come back to work… Continue reading Everything’s fine.
Thank you to everyone who expressed their kind words of love and support for our family following Tuesday’s post. We are still waiting on a surgery date for Kayla, but meet with her doctor on Monday and hope to know more after that visit.

Last Thursday morning, I woke up with a painful, stiff neck. Man, I must have slept wrong, was what I thought. I decided to go ahead and do my workout, which was a cardio workout from 4 Weeks of The Prep, and included some burpees and ab exercises. I figured the movement would work out… Continue reading Injuries suck.
