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. I’ve done posts on it before, but essentially it’s an 8-week program, 4 days a week, that… Continue reading Reality check
When I look back at my social media posts and blog posts from 2020, I was on the top of my game, both physically and mentally, even though we were in the midst of a crazy pandemic. I was killing my workouts, I was eating healthy, and I was goal-focused. I had a group of… Continue reading 2021 vs 2020

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
It’s crazy that a month has gone by since I last wrote a blog post! At that time, I was dealing with some neck issues; I was pretty sure that I had a herniated disc, but I had to wait to have an MRI to know for sure. I had my MRI and sure enough,… Continue reading Neck update
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.
Hello, and happy inauguration day! It’s a new chapter in America, and I’m hoping that it’s going to be one filled with unity, hope, equality, and prosperity! Things are going well with my workouts and nutrition so far in 2021. I’m on week 3 of Phase 1 of 9 Week Control Freak. Week 3 is… Continue reading A mental Ironman
