Parents Seem to Overthink so Much

I must admit, I am guilty from time to time of feeling overwhelmed and wondering “am I doing this right?!” Then I stop and really calm down, get those nerves settled and realize that I am doing this right. Who are you to tell another parent that they are not doing it right? For example; with my youngest having separation anxiety in the mornings — many will say I need to just leave him kicking and screaming, that is not something I am comfortable with. The reason I am not comfortable with that is this; I feel its my job […]

Fitness Friday Moving Forward & Losing Inches

This week I am writing my weekly update on the EA Sports Active 30 day Challenge I am doing every week to lose weight and inches! This Fitness Friday meme is brought to you by Wii Mommies. Days 12 and 13 I took rest days. Day 12 was a Friday and I coudn’t motivate myself to get up and exercise because the boys were being out of control crazy so I was able to get my exercise chasing them around. Day 13 I had a business conference type even to attend and I barely got my butt out of bed […]

Day 11: Burned 1000 Calories

Today is Day 11 of the EA Sports Active 30 Day Challenge and I received a trophy for burning 1000 calories total. So I had a good workout but did it at the end of the day not first thing in the morning. Today is Sunday and while my husband is still living here, I still do my Sunday sleep in routine where I get to snooze as long as I want to catch up on my long 6 previous days with the three amigos (my children). Not only did I do my normal work out and burned great amount […]

Today is Day 10 of my EA Sports Active 30 Day Challenge and I am excited that I am continuing along with my venture to get fit and healthy!

Today I was lucky because I had my three kids cheering me on to get moving forward in my fitness goals, every time I did a good […]

Day 6, 7 and 8: EA Sports Active 30 day Challenge

It’s official, I didn’t update the past three workouts or rest days I should say. Day 6 of the EA Sports Active 30 Day Challenge was a “rest day” but day 7 was to be a workout day just like today, Day 8. I rested as stated for Day 6 and when Day 7 came around, I started my workout later in the morning, rather than 1st thing so that kind of made it hard to motivate myself to workout. Add in that my boys didn’t seem to want to corporate with me this day I had trouble getting my […]
