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
I’m sorry for my long absence, but the last six weeks have been a roller coaster. Actually I feel like things have been a roller coaster for quite some time. Let me just start at the beginning. About 15 months ago, I started looking for a new job. I hadn’t been happy at my current… Continue reading It’s never too late.
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

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

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! I just read through all of my 2020 posts and I’m so glad that I blogged about everything because it was a lot. When I first started writing about the pandemic back in March, none of us knew that this would be around for the rest of the year (and is STILL going… Continue reading Adios 2020!
Hello! I hope everyone out there had a nice Thanksgiving, although it probably wasn’t the usual celebration for most of us. We had a celebration the weekend before with just our two daughters and sons-in-law. On Thanksgiving day, the kids had a celebration with the in-laws, so it was just David and me and we… Continue reading Triple whammy
I just completed week 4 of my second round of LIIFT4, a Beachbody on Demand workout program that combines strength training and HIIT exercises. I’m noticing some changes, and I’m pretty excited about it. I can definitely see some changes in my arms and shoulders! My core is getting stronger, although it doesn’t seem to… Continue reading Progress, not perfection
Hello, friends! How is your week going so far? It’s cold and blustery here and the S-word is in the forecast for tomorrow night and Friday morning. I just want to eat all of the food and hibernate for the next few months, but instead I’ve been dragging my ass out of bed in the… Continue reading It’s simple, right?
