Never Too Old

I am so excited about today’s ride!  I finally rode the hardest trail for the first time this year.  I rode it a few times last year, but wanted to get stronger in my legs before trying it again this year, because it starts off on steep climb that feels like it goes on forever!  I believe it is about 1/4 of a mile for the climb.  Needless to say, I have come a long way from last year to today.   Continue reading

Trying To Find Balance

I’m still trying to figure out how to do everything that I feel I need to do, and want to do during this part of my journey in life. Do you ever wonder how everyone seems to have it together, but you? I see people posting on Instagram and Facebook everything they do, and it makes me feel a little frustrated. How do they do it all???? Continue reading

Finding Balance Is Difficult

Just when I thought I was getting back into the swing of my workouts, a wrench got threw into the program.  What wrench, you may ask?  For me, the wrench is working a different schedule then my husband.

You see, usually I come straight home from work, change my clothes, let the dogs out, and then head to the gym.  I like for my workouts to be done by 6:30 at the latest, and that is only when I take a group class at the gym.

FlintLand: Hey, Fat Girl

I know this story has been out for a few years, but I just came across the post.  You know sometimes things come to you at just the right time, and reading this couldn’t have come at a more better time for me!

It’s Never Too Late

When I was in my thirties and first started out on my weight loss journey, I lived in Florida.   There was a paved bicycle trail that went from one city to another, and a friend and I would ride it a few times a week for some exercise.  My favorite part of the ride was when the path went through a wooded area.  It was always so pretty and a lot cooler, because of all the shade the trees provided.   I always took my time going through these areas of the trail because I enjoyed it so much.

Feeling So Uninspired

Today is the day that I usually go get groceries and do all my meal prepping for the week.  I did make it to the grocery store, but I had no inspiration for my meals for the week.  In fact, since this past Friday, I’ve not had much inspiration at all.  I have been in such a slump lately and I can’t seem to shake it.   I walked into Publix today and had no clue what I wanted or needed to make for this weeks meals.  The only thing I could think of getting, was ingredients for some Salted Chocolate Chunk Cookies  I saw online today.
