~Spring Fling~ Check In!

Hi Guys! 
Checking in to see how you are doing on the
~Spring Fling~ Challenge
I'm doing pretty good.  Today was not as good as the others but I'm not going to let that get in my way.  I still have to get my rear end downstairs to exercise.  Man, when I was single with no kids, exercise fit in any time I wanted it to.  But trying to exercise now is no easy task.  I would like to get up early in the morning to get it done for the day, but my kids seem to always hear me if I'm up.  And when I'm up, they are up.  And believe me, I don't want them up at 5:00 am!  So, I usually wait to exercise until they go to bed. 
Oh, I've tried exercising while they play.  Except they usually stop what they are doing and start stealing my hand weights and stretchy bands.  I love that sometimes they try to exercise with me (you know, trying to set a good example by showing them that exercise is a normal part of the day), but they usually end up in the way, and I'm afraid they are going to get trampled or kicked while I pretend to be Jillian Michaels in my living room (funny, I was going to type "pretend to be Jane Fonda", but that would show my age!).
And that darn Easter candy needs to be consumed already!  When there is no junk in the house, there is no temptation!  Curse you! Mini M&M's!
This challenge is all about making choices to make a healthier you and me!  With heart disease, breast cancer, high cholesterol and high blood pressure in my family I really need to make a whole lifestyle change! 
We Can Do This!
How are you doing?  What kinds of things motivate you to stay on track?  What things get in your way?  I would love to hear from you! 


  1. Blake likes to "help" Jordan do his stretches as he is getting ready to go for a run. It is so cute to see Blake's interpretation of each move...he definitely tries his best to do each move like daddy! That being said, it is not easy to get any exercising done with a toddler climbing on you! :)

    1. That is so cute. Hope you have some pictures of that.

    2. I have a video of the two of them doing their stretches :)

  2. Ugghh...started off good but then had a terrible allergic reaction to something and had to get a steroid shot and medication. Well, all I want to do is eat..Guess I will start over once the meds are gone. Still trying to make healthy choices but eating way more than I should....

  3. Hope your allergy is all cleared up. Life gets in the way sometimes. Thank goodness we always get tomorrow to start again!


I love your comments!
