21 DSD 

So tomorrow I start the 21 Day Sugar Detox. I typically challenge myself once a year. I don’t have a terrible diet however, I know that it’s not under control the way I think it should. I always say my bad is someone’s good, but I know I can be better.  This is always a great way to help me re-focus. To make it even better I will be joining 25-30 people from the gym.

Accountability! Accountability! Accountability!!  I cannot say that one single word enough. It’s amazing how far you can go on the buddy system. My husband is even going to join me….. for me. We took the test and we are doing Level 3. Don’t get me wrong I love my sweets, but I also know how rewarding it is to eat clean, and healthy.  I love the way you feel and the empowerment you gain from doing what seems so impossible.  Nothing is impossible with the right mindset.

Learn about sugar here IS SUGAR REALLY BAD??!

Stay tuned for updates. 

Vacation WOD 

When we arrived we scoped the place out and it just so happens there is a bike path exactly 1/2 mile loop, with benches, and walls.  The possibilities are endless. Special THANKS to an awesome notification from one of my  Bootcamp/CrossFitters I was motivated to get out of bed.  I LOVE THAT AM CREW. I love our gym!! I’m literally 362 miles away and we all keep each other motivated.

Todays WOD

2 mile bike, 1 mile run, 10 airsquats, 10 Push-ups, 10 lunges 9…8…7..-1 then finished with a 1 mile bike. Vacation WOD

362 Miles 

And we’re off!!! Glamping for a few days in Tennessee. I say glamping because we are in the Camper, not a tent. Looking forward to some family fun and a couple days away from the stresses of everyday life. Hiking, smores, grilled food (my favorite…. well other than tacos). I’m desperately trying to be comfortable in the truck, and not put my feet against the window…. you know those toe prints drive my husband insane. So much for trying, I left a mark!

The kids are happy in the back seat SO THANKFUL for technology and unlimited data plans. Makes 6 hours a lot easier for the little ones. I’m sure they will still get bored and we will remind them of the alphabet and license game and how we had no devices when we were little. You know all the things we hated as kids, and how we would never do that as parents. About 45 minutes into the drive, we are in a traffic jam. However; took my youngest about an hour to notice, and when she did “We are in a Daggone traffic jam!!?!” we told her the trip would take us 6-7 hours, roughly a day at school. Her response, “well is it lunchtime yet at school?” Haha.

The traveling was a success, the girls were great, one traffic jam, one restroom break, 10 toe marks on the windshield, two happy kids, a happy mom, and a driving smiling dad.

Here’s to a new memories on spring break.

Soccer Mom

“I’M A SOCCER MOM” yup, totally me.  I grew being a cheerleader, not exactly athletic.  My husband tosses the keys to my children instead of me.  Multitasking is not exactly my thing, so I am sure you can imagine what I look like shooting a basket or dribbling a soccer ball.  I can run very fast and I can jump, tumble and squat.  So, I can assure when daughter came to me and said, “I wanna play soccer” I was excited because socially I think it would be great for her. She is often timid, and I love that she made this choice.  Then I went FREAK MOM MODE, “omgsh I know nothing about soccer” !! I was a nervous wreck, trying not to let her know.

Last season, was alot of learning.  I mean I know which goal is ours, so I can’t say I totally didn’t know nothing.  But yeah, that was all.  And to top it off all the girls on her U9 Youth Team have been playing for years, their parents probably played and they all have mad skills I’m sure.  The fall season went great, she learned a lot from her coaches, she shed some tears, won some games lost some games and got play time.  Fast forward to spring, I’m officially addicted to watching her play.  I love seeing her run, kick the ball, smile, giggle, laugh, all of it.  Her heart, her drive, and all that ambition she has to be the best she can be.  Our mentality with everything is never quit and give it everything you’ve got, at the end of the day you can never be disappointed if you have succeeded in doing your best.

OH MY GAWSH the BEST PART – SHE SCORED HER FIRST GOAL.  I don’t know who was more excited, Maddie, her Dad or me.  It was so cool, so rewarding.  I’m officially a Soccer Mom!! I am excited for this journey, I am excited she has found something she loves, even more excited she gets to teach me.


My Masterpiece

Well, here it is.  My first official blog, other than my “about me” page.  Which I don’t really consider this my first blog.  I feel like I have been plastering, my kids, fitness, and love for food all over Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram for years.  Well, now I am going to blend it all together. Giving you, in a nut shell, my blended life in a blog.  I’ll talk fitness, day to day stresses, sprinkle some fitness dust, and of course share recipes of all the awesome food we love, while driving across town from one business to the other, soccer to gymnastics, and managing to do it all with a smile.  It’s impossible to not smile when these two are your masterpieces.17632094_10213047298876430_7682528819237153173_o
