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.

The Fog Is Lifting

To say that this past month  has been difficult would be an understatement because not only has it been hard physically, it has been even harder emotionally.

I’ve never been a person to stay in the dumps very long or always feel defeated, but Continue reading

No Motivation

I am still stuck in a rut.  I have absolutely no motivation to do anything. Last month I had lower back problems and had to stop working out for 3 weeks as I recovered.  I’ve only been back to the gym a few times, even though my doctor gave me full release over a week ago.  For some reason, I’m finding it really difficult to get back to my routine.  Partly, it is because that I no longer find the enjoyment in working out anymore, and partly it’s because I get concerned about hurting myself again. It’s like all I can think about is my age and what my body can and cannot do anymore.  It is very depressing to me.  I have a consultation scheduled with my gyno on Thursday to see what she recommends.  The progesterone she has had me on since March has made me feel so down about myself, and life.  I feel as though I don’t care about anything anymore.  I’ve never felt this way before.  It’s so not me!  No matter what the scale has read, I have always enjoyed life.  Things are different now.  I don’t feel the same.  Is it because my hormones are out of balance or is it the progesterone?  I want to find that zeal I use to have…where did it go??

There Will Always Be Excuses

Have you ever wondered if anyone really cares about your journey to gain better health and lose weight? I have been wondering about that a lot lately. Since March of this year, I haven’t been doing the greatest when it comes to eating right. I have kept up my workouts Continue reading

Is This What Youth Looks Like?

My mother said something on Mother’s Day while we were taking pictures that keeps resonating within me.  It resonates because I felt it deep down.  It was one of those things that you know will stay with you forever because it “struck a chord” on the inside of you. Continue reading

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!

FlintLand: Hey, Fat Girl.: Yes, you. The one feigning to not see me when we cross paths on the running track. The one not even wearing sports gear, breathing heavy…
