271.

271. On October 20th I weighed in at 271. I now have 60 lbs to lose to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I’d like to offer up 1,000 different excuses: life, kids, work, no time…but there aren’t any. I’ve been eating like crap, not going the gym, and had almost zero energy. The only,…

Happy Fall Y’all!

Rain, rain go away basic girls want to play! So far this Fall has been full of rain and more rain. The rivers are high again and the ground is soaked and muddy. We NEED some sunshine and cool crisp Fall air! Aside from the rain, we’ve managed to have some Fall fun. Last week…

Instagram: Insecurity Equals Profit.

Do I have an Instagram account? Yes, I actually run four of them. Do I like Instagram? Yes, I like the idea of Instagram, I just don’t like what it’s becoming. Instagram started as a place to share photos. To see beauty from all parts of the world through other’s eye. It was a way…

Not Pictured.

Do you ever look at a photo and remember that exact moment? Exactly what you were doing, or how you were feeling? This is that photo for me. Three years ago (yesterday 9/17) I was almost 300 lbs, married, and I was miserable.  I was so unhappy with where I was in life, who I…

Burnout.

I’m having a hard time finding motivation lately. Going to the gym feels like the ultimate burden and work somehow feels like my only escape or mini break, weird, right? Anyone else feel like this lately? I don’t know if it’s the time of year and the fact that Summer just won’t leave. Knowing Fall…

Real Friends Serve Humble Pie

Every once in a while people need a good hearty helping of humble pie. Ya’ll know who I’m talking about. That person who knows everything. That person who’s done more, seen more, knows more. That person who’s feelings are deeper, stronger, worse than your’s are… They love more, experience more, and grieve more. There are…

“Comparison is the Thief of Joy”

“Comparison IS the thief of joy,” -Theodore Roosevelt. Teddy was right. Over the last month I’ve been going to the gym 5-6 days a week, eating healthy, and avoiding the junk. The scale and my clothes are proof, down 12 pounds. I’m proud of myself. I feel like I’m slowly getting back to myself. Today,…

What Helped Me Lose 100 Pounds.

There is no magic pill. There is no magic shake, tea, or drink. There is only consistency and work. After losing over 125 lbs in one year I find myself a little on the fluffier side again. Now that baby is 8 months old it’s time to get serious again. I’ve been maintaining my current…

What You Didn’t Expect, When You’re Expecting.

Let’s start this off with a few intros or disclaimers, what ever you want to call the fact that I’m not a doctor, a professional, or anything that has any kind of degree in being perfect. Just a mom. So you’re expecting your first baby? Time to plan a shower, decorate the baby’s room, pick…

What I Got For Christmas 2018

Christmas 2018 has  come and gone, along with an entire year. There were so many big life changes this year for my family. In February I counted down the days until we closed on our home. In March I counted down the days waiting for warm weather. In May I counted down the days until…
