Outdoor walkin'


3.12 miles today outside! Its been a few weeks since I've walked outside bc its been COLD. It felt great. Love walking in the sunshine and enjoying nature.

Only bad this was the Sunday morning drivers coming home from church. Yeah. But it's ok lol

It starts at 10AM (reg at 9) Give me your email and I will send you the registration form.

It's a Beautiful day! Are you walking today?

Mom Confession in this one ;)

No walking today, but I did play some basketball w/the kids & Ted!
Oh and I helped one of my best friends pack stuff to move today. Didn't do a lot of lifting but hey, I was moving! lol

Last year, Well lets say before January 1, 2013, I was LAZY. Not kidding.
MOM CONFESSION: All summer I would make excuses NOT to take my kids outside. If we did go outside, I would carry a chair w/me & sit. My kids would ask me to play & I would say no. I would say I'm tired, my back hurts.


I haven't lost much weight since I started my challenge, but I have noticed I have a lot more energy. I've noticed I don't sit around like I did. Yes, my back still hurts, but I play & do what I can.

It has been a BIG challenge with eating healthier. I love my Pepsi Max. I live for snacking....and CHOCOLATE!!

Know what I mean?!

I'm totally not saying that I'm all perfect go getter momma now. I don't walk everyday. I don't count my calories everyday. I still sit & watch tv & be lazy, but not like I was. I'm on a mission to organize my life and my house lol
(I'll keep yal updated on that one lol)

I want to know what motivates you!
Comment, FaceBook me, Tweet me & let me know! :)

Yep, you read the title correctly lol
I am soo proud of myself. I feel AMAZING! I didn't even need motivation this morning. I was actually looking forward to walking! SOO weird for me!

49/300 miles ;)

I've been over stressed with things and I kept trying to plan to walk but things just kept me from going. Let me tell ya, blaring some Three Days Grace Pandora Radio while walking is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I recommend it, but try NOT to sing  Yeah, I did this morning hahaha I'm sure the old ladies didn't mind but I didn't plan it!

I had Fat Monday! Ted decided to make MONKEY BREAD last night. OH. MY.

I walked 2 miles last Thursday & 5 miles today at the Y.

42/300! I'm 14% closer to my goal :)

I've been thinking a lot about what I'm giving up for Lent. As I was walking this morning, SWEETS was all I could think of....really?!?!
I want to keep challenging myself to be healthier so cutting out sweets may be what I need! I'm doing all this walking but yet I'm still eating A LOT of sugary foods. To make it easier on myself, I may choose something specific lol Just need to figure out WHAT tho. What are you giving up for Lent?

Getting back on track!

I am super happy with myself today. I walked a total of 6 MILES!!


I was only planning on walking my normal 2-3 miles. I was actually extremely tired this morning. Didn't get to bed till late and I just wanted to go take a nap lol Thankfully my friend Crystal started off with me then when she had to leave, I walked last 2 with my friend Tish.

Walking with friends is GREAT therapy. Plus it makes the miles go by really fast. I love it ;)
So this is my invitation to anyone reading this, if you want to go walking, let me know! If you don't have a Y membership, we can always walk at the park, down the road or anywhere. Let's motivate each other!!

2 miles today :)

I had some time after soccer pics to walk! It felt SOO good!
I only got 2 miles in but in 36 minutes!!! I'm HAPPY with that :)

28/300 :)

I got some new shoes!!!!!
I went to Ungers in Ironton. The guy who helped me was SUPER nice. I've never had anyone tell me the reason for the extra eyelet lol AND he told me things about my feet I didn't know haha Def worth the money & time spent :)
