Sounds like my start to the new year, injury and stress!! Ugh! But have just recently recommitted to take control back of myself and my health and get started. I have always done my workouts after work, but my kids activities took priority and I couldn’t seem to fit it in! So I had to make a sacrifice and start getting up at 5am (and believe me, that is the hardest part for me) to get my work out in. Before anyone (kids, husband & work) started making demands on my time. Mommy time..Me time..the time that is necessary for me to feel good about myself! I am finding so many great advantages of that early time that I didn’t get from my PM workouts.. The biggest being that I am not feeling the guilt from my family for not being there for them.

I wish there were a CrossFit gym near us. My husband likes to find workouts on YouTube and call me in to watch, too. That’s the kind of workout that really works.

The Story of Lacy

 There’s a story behind the funny looking dog with a big smile.  She gives hugs neck to neck.  She followed us home one July 4th walk. We fell in love, but with our houseful of pets, couldn’t keep her.  She’s like a Mr. Potato-Head dog, made up of all the wrong body parts. Someone here […]

I would love to see the rest of the story. But I am your tech challenged friend. I went to instagram but could not find a search tab.
