New Workout Gear for the New Year

To be honest, I never really make New Year’s resolutions. At least not ones related to fitness or weight loss. Because honestly, my history with these resolutions is that I give them up inside a month. And this year, weight loss was the last thing on my mind, since I expected to be pregnant until… Continue reading New Workout Gear for the New Year

Maybe Wearing ‘Activewear’ will Help Me Stay Active

If I’m really honest with myself, I don’t like to exercise. Well, that’s not entirely true. I love to dance, which is technically exercise, but getting up the desire to move my body is almost always a challenge. Still, I know I need to do it and I always feel better afterward, so I’ve had… Continue reading Maybe Wearing ‘Activewear’ will Help Me Stay Active

#Cinchspiration Four-Month Video Update

I know things have been quiet around here this week. Life has gotten crazy busy all of a sudden, but I wanted to share how I’m doing on my Shaklee 180 journey to this point.

This self-consciousness is, in part, why my membership at Curves a few years didn’t last very… Continue reading Fresh Start: It’s My ‘Home Gym’

Fresh Start: Video Games Make Me Love Working Out!

I admit that I have (had?) bad eating habits, but what once was even harder for me to do was get motivated to exercise. Doing hundreds of situps, jumping jacks and squats didn’t really appeal to me. In my mind, it was all work, so I didn’t want to do it. I have to say,… Continue reading Fresh Start: Video Games Make Me Love Working Out!

I Wish I Could Do the Walk to School Challenge

More than 2 months into the school year, I am still in awe that my daughter is in kindergarten. Finally, she’s in “big girl school,” as she likes to put it. I’m also still in awe that she rides the bus alone every morning. It is a short ride of about 5 minutes, but I… Continue reading I Wish I Could Do the Walk to School Challenge
