I'm back!

It's been over a month since I've blogged.  Did you miss me?  Probably not!  I'm not even sure I have readers which is ok, it's really just a journal for me anyway.

A lot has happened in the last month, it's been kinda crazy!  Let's see...my husband got laid off on Dec 4th.  The next day we drove 6+ hours away to ID for a job interview.  It was FREEZING!  He ended up getting the job and is supposed to start next week, if he takes it.  He's been able to do a side job, painting for a friend up until Friday which was nice!  Keep us in your prayers!

I was doing good with my mall walking, until winter break hit.  I was having a hard time getting any exercise in with the boys home.  My last workout was Dec 17th.  I hate that!  I like to work out and feel better when I do.  However, it was hard to make time for it.

Christmas was a good time spent with family and no drama.  The boys loved it and I enjoyed seeing their excitement! 

And then we all got sick, not at the same time just one after the other.  It's been fun.

I also got busy with making Christmas gifts so in my free time when I could've been working out I was busy sewing.  Next year I will definitely make it a point to start them much sooner!!!!

I continued to weigh in and make it to a few meetings.  I had two weeks of gain and then a loss right after Christmas.  I did not make it in last week though.  Partially because I stepped on the scale and saw a big gain and didn't want to face it.  Bad, I know.  I haven't been tracking and really need to get back to it!  I started the holidays off ok but then got too confident and over ate and not the best foods.  I had a mind set that I wanted to enjoy the holidays without stressing about my weight loss.  I didn't wear my fitbit over the holidays either, another no no!  I charged it and put it back on yesterday.  Then I forgot to switch it for my work out today.  Oops!

Speaking of work outs...Yesterday I started a 90 day challenge.  It's a FB challenge that I found.  It's called the Bikini Body Mommy Challenge.  I gathered up some friends for accountability and created a group on FB to hold us all to it.  It's NO joke!  Today was Day 2 (and Day 1 was only 8 min long) and my arms and legs feel like jello!  I was beat red after today's workout but it felt good.  I did not commit to doing this challenge because I want a bikini body, in fact I don't think that will ever happen.  I want something that will keep me healthy and active during the winter months.  This challenge can be done at or near home and only requires dumb bells, which I have, no gym membership required.  If anyone wants to join me, let me know!

Day 1 (yesterday) was only 8 min like I said but it was tough.  I'm out of shape!  I definitely have more lower body strength than upper.  I've never done a burpee in my life and have come to the conclusion that they are the devil!  For real!!!

Day 2 (today) was hard!!  I didn't do each amount that you were supposed to but I tried my hardest.  I know over time I will get stronger and be able to do it.  I have been doing the workouts in my bedroom/bathroom.  It's been working out great and I can lock the door so nobody can interrupt me!  I'm going to try really hard to stick with it for the 90 days!
