Ow. Ow. OW! This is me, each time I stand up from a sitting position. My butt is so sore, you guys. As always, though, it’s a good kind of sore because it means that I’m doing some really great leg workouts. My sore muscles are due to a new program I started on Monday… Continue reading My current workout program
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.
Wow, it’s the last day of January 2021, guys! Here in Iowa, we are once again dealing with more snow. It’s been a really snowy winter. I’m thankful that I don’t have to commute every day to work right now and can just stay indoors where it’s safe and warm, although there are a couple… Continue reading Let’s do this!

Happy New Year’s Eve! We have no exciting celebration plans tonight. My husband and I will be eating pizza, drinking wine, and sitting in our PJ’s in front of the TV.

Yes, I’m still here. It feels a bit like the movie Groundhog Day, doesn’t it? Each day feels the same as the day before. The only time I leave the house is to go to work a couple of days out of the week, to the grocery store, and for my daily walks with our… Continue reading Pandemic Fatigue
How is everyone out there? I mean, really – how are you? I hope you’re healthy, I hope you’re practicing self-care and gratitude. I hope you’re not hoarding all of the toilet paper and that you’re washing your hands.

Good morning! I know it’s been a while since I’ve written anything. The last six weeks have been insane. My youngest daughter and son-in-law bought a house which needed some renovations before they were able to move in. We finally got them moved in last weekend. Work has also been extremely busy. I have been… Continue reading MM100 – COMPLETED!
It’s been a while since I’ve written a post. Life has been really busy since the holidays. I thought that things would slow down, but nope.

My core is getting stronger, although it doesn’t seem to… Continue reading Progress, not perfection
