This was my first week joining the Living and Active challenge and it was a tough one. The goals were relatively easy, but life was hard. Right now my husband is working full-time, taking a couple of seminary courses, and trying to be a good dad and husband. I am teaching, momming, wifing, blogging, trying… Continue reading Just Trying to Survive
There was one picture I wanted to take last year, because it was evidence of my goal achievements. Then, before I had time to make a blog post of it, I felt the need to take a blogging break and never posted it. Last week was my 15th wedding anniversary, so I thought now was… Continue reading #15×15 Check-in: 15 Years and it Fits!
This weekend I finished my 9 week C25k training. I am now able to jog for a full 30 minutes! It actually took me a few extra weeks, with hot weather, sickness, etc., but I did it! I finished, but I’m not done. I can’t just stop now that I’ve completed the training. I need… Continue reading #15×15 Check-in: Finished, but not Done
Last week my family had a family reunion in Kansas. We drove 9 hours to get there. Before I left I had thought about how this would affect my goals and really wanted to try keeping them away from home. There are many difficulties in being away from home and trying to lose weight. One… Continue reading #15×15 Weekly Check-in: Eating Well While Away From Home?

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any healthy living posts and I’m feeling it. When I was posting about it regularly I definitely felt more accountability to whoever was out there reading. I haven’t totally fallen off the wagon but I’m definitely not on the same track I was a year ago. I’m still… Continue reading Losing 15 by the 15th
This year I am working towards Joy. I know that if I am going to live out this word, JOY, I need God as my foundation. He is the creator of Joy and has given me joy through the fruits of the spirit.(Gal. 5:22) I need to realize He is where I get my joy,… Continue reading Finding Joy in God
Do you ever wish you had a few minutes to yourself to wake up, before the kids came jumping into your bed each morning? I always do. I am not a “morning person”. I love my sleep and I really dislike being awoken, even if it is by my angelic children. But I am starting… Continue reading Hello Mornings
I saw a trend at the beginning of last year, particularly in the blogging world. People were choosing a word for the year. This word would be something they try to attain to or focus their goals around. Really it can mean what ever you want it to. I didn’t get into it. I’m not… Continue reading My Word for 2013
This week I’m posting my weigh-in a day earlier due to some other blogging obligations for tomorrow. A couple weeks ago I gained a few pounds back. It was frustrating. I had been working so hard and had come so far. Then I gained. I didn’t feel like I had done anything to warrant that… Continue reading Don’t Give Up on Living Healthier
