Beautiful Mess: The me I used to be

Every one from a distance and up close has seen one of the transformations that I have done in the last two years.  That’s far from all that I have done.  I have chosen to open up and really figure it all out.  Who am I?  What do I want?  How am I going to […]

2 year Fitversary: My Weight Loss Journey…24 to 2!

I am going to repeat this from the My Frump to Fit: Size 24 to Size 6 blog because I feel that this is a very necessary statement. This is only my journey.  This is what worked for me.  This is not what I recommend or suggest but simply telling my story.  We are not in a […]

My Frump to Fit: Size 24 to Size 6

Before I really get into this…  This is only my journey.  This is what worked for me.  This is not what I recommend or suggest but simply telling my story.  Many people have asked me what I did, do or are doing to get my weight down.  A LOT!  Well it doesn’t feel like a […]

Maybe I am flaky.

It’s hard for people to understand why I may say no to invitations or last minute not be able to come. It may be hard to understand how someone so active sits at home so much instead of making it to the gym or a workout. It may be hard to see why someone who […]

Isabel is 2!

Oh my sweet bebe, Isabel. I cannot believe that it has been 2 years already!  You really bring something amazing to this family with all of your adorable quirks.  It really does feel as though the time has flown. When you were born, we lived across the nation in the desert and now we live […]

Letters to you: 3 months old

Here’s my letters to you… Hannah, You’re 3 months old now.  I guess that makes you not a newborn anymore, huh?  I don’t want to think about that too much because I’ll sit here and have a moment.  Don’t grow so fast! You have started to smile more, belly giggle, coo and even wiggle yourself […]

Letters to you: 2 months

Here’s my letter to you… I cannot believe that time has passed this quickly. You are already 23 1/2″ and 11 lbs 14 oz. The little baby coos have begun. The smiles too! Your siblings have all warmed up to you and love to hold you!  It absolutely warms my heart seeing them with you. […]

Chasing My Fit: Balancing Act

Chasing fitness postpartum is not by any means easy. Being a nursing mom, I have to watch that my calories do not fall below a certain point BUT being a woman trying to get back on the road to finding my fit I need to watch that I don’t go above a certain point either. […]

Chasing my fit: Crazy? Maybe.

I have the bug.  I have it bad.  Today I am starting marathon training.  That’s right…marathon training!  Not half marathon.  I need to know where my breaking point is.  I need to challenge myself.  What better way than to do something I, myself, think is crazy? PS I broke the 180 threshold!  I had been […]

Letters to you: 1 month

Here’s my letter to you… Hannah, You have been in our arms for a month now.  I can never tell you how amazed Daddy and I are with you.  You have made our lives and our family complete. I plead for a natural induced labor and you gave that to me.  We had the experience […]
