Losing 212lbs took more than a change in diet. It also took me moving my body, with a purpose. Daily. In fact, I didn't even start this whole transformation with diet. I started with exercise. I knew that if I took on both diet and exercise at the same time, I would likely be overwhelmed and give up before I even started. I also knew that I needed some time for ME and that I could make that happen in the gym. Why the gym? Because the gym provided me with daycare for my children. And that meant t... [More]

Typing a double negative just made the hair rise up on my arm.
When I was in school, this would be "the song" that we would sing on the last day of school. But for today's music Monday theme (remakes) I'm including a techno version!
The last day of school for MY gang is Tuesday, and they will continue to get an education throughout the summer. We will have reading and math time every day during break. The kids can't back slide during the summer months, and if I don't stay on top of them, the... [More]

I am so proud of my friend Gracie Updyke as she is kicking her way back to the fitness world!! Why do I say kicking? Gracie has had her product backed by KICKSTARTER!!
It's women like Gracie that Kickstarter’s funding platform was created in the first place. She has a proven track record and a clear cut business plan. Backing her company is as simple as pledging the cost of a Gracie’s Gear sports bra or long tank (or both) which you will actually receive if the goal is met. If... [More]
