Catching Up and Eating Homemade Mac & Cheese

It’s been a while since I posted last, life has just gotten in the way.   I had to take time away from everything I had been doing to care for my mother after she was released from the hospital.  That was an experience.  It’s hard to go back home when you have lived away for […]

Big Girl Panties

Last Wednesday marked the final Cornerstone CrossFit class for me.  I had mixed feelings about it, I feel I’m ready for a real WOD but then again I’m worried that I won’t be able to do it.  I know how I am and sometimes my brain forgets that I’m not that 16 year old gymnast […]

Broken Butt?!?!?!

Still loving CrossFit and still doing well on the Lurong Paleo Challenge, however, tonight I literally broke my butt! Seriously I really did break my tailbone, and I’m sitting here dying laughing about it.  I know I know, its not funny, but really it is and I would pay good money to have a video […]

Taking Another Step to Being Fit

It’s been a while since my last post but life has really gotten in the way.  It’s still very crazy around my house but wanted to post what’s been going on.  We are still eating natural organic foods and I’m still losing weight.  I feel great and have so much energy. Two weeks ago I […]

Hot, Tired, & Smells Like Onions

We are back from our vacation and I’m been trying to catch up on laundry, work, email, laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping, and did I mention laundry.  I think I have done more laundry since we have been back than I did last month!  We were only gone for a week what gives, did someone come […]

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July to everyone!  I sit here watching The Patriot in my hotel room with my family and silently thank those that did fight so many years ago for our freedom.   And I thank those that continue to fight to keep our freedom.

On the Road Again

Yesterday’s post had us preparing for our trip from Texas to Wisconsin. Today we are in the car on the way. The plan was to leave at 5 am but as with most family trips, 5 am became 8 am. The boys and I were up most of the night finishing up our packing, making […]

Vacation Time

I haven’t posted in a few days because I’m trying to get my family ready to leave for a lovely road trip from Texas to Wisconsin.  Does the movie National Lampoon’s Vacation come to mind?  It does mine every time we decide to take a family trip and drive.  Granted its never as bad as […]

Grandma Would Be Proud

Farmer’s Market haul. If you read my last post you know I have been doing a lot of cooking from scratch using fresh ingredients.  While at the Farmer’s Market I picked up some fruit and veggies.  But today I focused on the small cucumbers I got in this haul to make pickles.  I started gathering […]

Pound Meltage

As promised here is what I’ve been doing to loose the extra weight I have gained over the last couple of years.  It really wasn’t hard and I’m amazed at how my body has responded.  To date I have lost almost 30 pounds. The first thing I did was to cut way back on my […]
