Let's try this again

New year so let's start some things over. I know I haven't posted in forever but I was in a blogging funk and that is mostly due to the fact that I wasn't working out either. Boo! Why wasn't I working out?? Well it is simple, I didn't make it a priority. But I am jumping on the New Years band wagon and starting fresh, AGAIN! I am so dedicated that I am blogging on my phone over the my lunch break. 

So here are my 2014 goals!

• To be strong and fit
• Run a half marathon 
• To calm down, take things down a notch (I think my husband and child could use a vacation from the crazy train) 
• Get organized 
• Get to work on time!
•blog 3 times a week. ( I really love to blog, I just didn't make the time for it) 

A lot of these are vague, I know. But that is what I got for now. But I did do this earlier this week 
Yeah I signed up for a half marathon in April in Abilene Ks. My cousin's husband will be running with me (well ahead of me but he will be there too). And since I did that, I got my butt to the gym this morning and I was able to run a mile and then I walked on the treadmill uphill for a while. 

I burned a good 300 calories. Not too bad for my first day back. Btw, that is a Christmas present and I LOVE it!!! 

Another thing I love is this

Because you can make these: 

So good!!! I have turkey sausage, cheese, egg, and siracha in my English muffin. Ohhhh my. It is so good. (I just bought some Ezekiel muffins, so I will start using them tomorrow) 

And I am back to weighing in on Fridays. This is actually yesterday's weight but whatever 

Yeah it is bad!! I know. But I am still about 10 pounds lighter than last year at this time. 

My goal is to FEEL better in my skin and I don't feel good right now. I will say even after today's workout I feel better than I did yesterday so I am heading in the right direction. 

And it wouldn't be complete if I didn't post a pic of my kid. So here ya go!! :) 

What are your New Year Resolutions? Is one of them to run a half marathon with me??? Lol come on, you can do it!! 


  1. hey, was just thinkin' about you guys the other day and how it'd been forever since we'd seen you. i hope you guys had a great christmas and new year's.

    so here it is...a new year and i'm not pregnant, so i probably should make one of my resolutions to run with you. i'm just not certain how i feel about half a marathon. lol

  2. It always feels good to get focused again! I love how you write down your goals. I'm doing that this weekend too. Here's to a fit and successful 2014!
