Week I don’t even know anymore

It’s official: I am down 30 pounds overall. I haven’t done my measurements yet. I haven’t had that kind of success. Ever. It feels really good. And I’ve done it in such a way that I’ve really worked on retraining my brain to make healthier choices with my food, while also trying to be more […]

Week 8: And the reason is you

I’m changing things up this week. Instead of writing about the specific successes and setbacks of the week, I wanted to write a little bit about my reason for doing this.

When was the last time you danced?

I have a dance party with the boys pretty much every day. But dancing is the classic sense? Probably not since our wedding in March 2014. Daniel isn’t much into dancing, and basically had to bully him into giving me one dance at the wedding. Maybe I’ll get one of those dance video games. It […]

What’s something both you and your child love?

The boys seem to enjoy going running with me. And running helps me maintain my sanity, so you know I love it. They alternate between just passing out and checking out the world around them. I run early in the morning when our main road is fairly well shaded, so I give them as much […]
