A recap of my New Years Goals


All I can say is I am trying.  I kind of fell of the horse right away with the new years goals.  I am achieving the tot time goal….we have focused on that almost every week since the new year.

It’s that stinkin’ work-out/eat-better/be-healthier goal that has been getting me.  But after feeling miserable for the past week, sluggish, yucky and just plain not happy, I hopped back on the horse. 

I have done 20 minutes on the elliptical 2 days this week, which means I have to do it tomorrow, or Else.  So today as I was going, I really pushed myself.  I felt good doing it.  I get super excited while working out, besides the dreadful fact of huffing and puffing and burning that is happening, I do feel excited.  I get my hopes up and feel better about my self overall.  I am trying to eat better, yet I have decided that I like food to much!  j/k.  I am trying.  Today i have been writing down everything I eat and am trying to drink more water. 

I must say that I really need to keep this going.  I have thought long and hard about this, and the one thing that I discovered is that if I don’t change my eating habits/health habits now, when R. is eating more and more and higher calorie and fattier stuff, I will want to join her.  So that’s it.  I am changing.  :)  I have to.  I will.  I am.  

Wish Me Luck


  1. I work out 4-6 times per week which was one of my goals for the year also. But, I agree with you, I like food too much. The scale was moving, but it is at a standstill again. Keep at it though. You definitely rock on the tot time!

  2. I am in the same exact boat! I like food wayyy too much! If I don't exercise during my noon hour, it rarely happens! I can't take time away from my kiddos at night!

  3. You go girl! I think it's so important for our kids to see us modeling good habits and running, for me, is definitely one of them. I would love it if Reese would want to run when she grows up. Also, I know the Arbonne products might be a little out of price range, but I've lost 12 pounds so far. We have a big group losing LOTS AND LOTS of weight. If nothing else, a protein shake as a meal replacement might help. Just wanted to share what was working for me. You are such a good mommy and you are showing that to Rylee every day! Good luck! Maybe we should be workout/check-in buddies. My goal is running 4x/week w/ weight training 2x/week.
