Day 30...Last Challenge Workout...who is with me?

Day 30...Last Challenge Workout...who is with me? 
Today's Challenge workout is nothing short of INSANE- you got this!

100 sit ups 200 crunches 120s plank 60 pushups 86 Jumping Jacks 64 High Knees 42 Squats 42 Lunges (per leg)

This is it- if you are still doing the challenge, this one takes the cake! This one divides us from the talkers and the do-ers!   If you completed this, you should definitely be noticing a lot of toning in those muscles and feeling inches lighter.  Do you feel good? Great?

I know I do!  I have been accountable and working hard to make sure that I do this workout along with you all, while mixing in my awesome Beachbody DVD systems in right along with all this.

I am really excited to start PiYo and hope that others will join!  If you are interested in know what the heck this PiYo thing is- please PM me or check out my website!  PiYo takes you through stretching, strengthening, and body-weight resistance-based exercises, at a fast, flowing pace- to sculpt and define eve…

HOT Summer Days at Gray Gables

Today was a BUSY, HOT Summer Day!  You know the ones I am talking about..the day is slow.. a rain storm even blew through in the early afternoon.  Then it turned into a HOT, humid mess ~ the sun shining so bright, leaving ZERO trace of any rain in sight for the naked eye to see.  It was busy with the sounds of Power Wheel Four Wheeler's through the yard and kids laughing, screaming and carrying on! It was filled with good food (BBQ Chicken bombs by Hubby) and lots of CAPRI SUNS littering the porch. 
As the sun set, a couple of whiny, hot kids and two parents boarded the old Chevy and HIT the fresh, open road for a SUMMER night roll in the old '63 Impala!  The kids asleep in the back, the open road all around and the cool country breeze filling the old car.  Something out of a REALLY good book, for sure!
I snapped this little pic and was enamored by the serene look of the tranquil brush- kind of took my breath away!  I love living in the country and all that this old house is g…

AVON LADY- Your orders are DUE July 2nd for Campaign 15!

It's a hot one here and I am under the weather, but I am still trying to work my way through this challenge.

Let's do this!

Saturday is R E S T Day!


Relationships: Are you READY to get MARRIED? There are some habits You Need to KICK Before You Say ‘I Do’!!

Are you READY to get Married? I have been married for a while now (eight long years this year!) and recently came acrossed a list of some things that newly married couples are experiencing and it really got me thinking! I mean, as a mother of 2 young girls, it would be nice to relay some kind of information on when it the right time to settle down in order to have a forever marriage! 
How do we know if we are ready to tie the knot, taking the giant leap into Adulthood?  Well, we do have a lot of growing up to do! Our priorities need to shift from wanting to sleep-in late to wanting to sleep in the same bed as someone else. We’re still embracing our immaturity and that’s okay, but there is a time when we need to grow up and develop some more adult qualities in order to gain entry to life’s later milestones. Especially if you’re looking to get married, there are some juvenile aspects of your life that you’ll have to give up to be able to move forward with a new person. Here are the characteri…

Challenge DAY 27...Opps I fell OFF the wagon... Get BACK UP!

How has everyone been doing with meals?  Shakeology has really helped me regulate calories in my everyday diet. I have only been doing 1 Shakeo a day- but the results are there!  I make sure Lunches are under 300 calories and have been trying to get snacks in- but truth be told, I am a horrible snacker! I just won't do it because a snack to me i…

Summer Reading...Who knew?

Is Reading going to be the DEATH of ME?

As many of you know, I have not been shy about wanting to get "that" Mom, the one who has so much FUN with their kids, who gets up and out, schedules things that are just too cool for school and is able to follow that darling 100 things to do in Summer lists!  
Realistically, I know I will NEVER acquire to much of this want, but baby steps, right! So, on a HOT Summer Sunday, in which it looked as if the sky were going to open up at any given moment and shower its L U N C H upon the earth- I packed up my kids and headed to the Library.  The pictures in my head were dreamy.  The excitement was all around us! 
Then reality hit!  We walked through that automatic door and found our way to the counter to get library cards. While I am busily writing names and d.o.b.'s out, my girls are busy playing with a little kids table with the beads on it that move along the lines of wire. (yes, seriously) - and fighting!  There were like 10 "track…

Challenge- Day #24- ARE YOU READY?

Well, I am.  Even with my seasonal allergies and Summer Cold, I am NOT giving up. (that Kalahari trip is just around the corner- eek!)

So, I have a question for everyone- are you remaining accountable? When are you doing your workouts?
