Started week 6 at the gym!!!!

I made it to 6 weeks at the gym!!!!!

Had my first session and it felt really good. I did cardio to start with, but skipped it after the workout because I wanted to get on the hydro massage table. Honestly, I have been choosing cardio instead of going to the massage because of how late I get to the gym. I always feel guilty after a workout to enjoy the beds when I know I should get home to watch Allee. Most of the time however Allee is just fine when I get home.

Oh my goodness a hydro massage was so worth it yesterday!! So glad that I took the time to use the beds.

I definitely need to get to the gym earlier so that I can do some cardio intervals at the end of my workout. It would just end up making the whole work out a lot longer and right now I can't afford that. I also must crack down on my eating. I'm considering Whole30 although I don't think I want to be that drastic about it either. Clearly I'm pretty conflicted about it.

Anyone have any experience with Whole30? I don't want to do a fad diet thing for myself. I have been eating clean and gluten free and I'm pretty happy with that, I think my bigger problem is getting a handle on my snackiness. I don't really think that's a word.

I'm just so hungry all the time!!

I know it's normal for someone who is working out 3 times a week. I know that it's also normal that I desire sweets too. It's just frustrating because food is such a struggle for me in the first place. I hate having to deal with it.

Okay. Rant over. Here is my vlog from before my workout.

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her

I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

My 1st week at my NEW JOB!!

Guys I got the job!!!
I am so excited I can't even begin to express it! I'm paying for my girls to be able to go to school and I'm contributing towards bills and it feels wonderful!! I know that as a stay-at-home mom I contributed a lot to my family dynamic, but there's something about being able to give financially towards expenses that feels amazing! 
Anyway, my first week passed and I can't tell you how great it was. The first three days I was training and would have to say that while I had what I feel like we're "training wheels" I was able to glean a lot of information from the person training me. By the fourth day she sort of did the 50/50 of letting me work by myself and assisting me. By day 5 she had gone out of town and I was working by myself! I can't tell you how awesome it felt to be able to sit at my desk and do the job that I was trained to do within 5 days AND feel like I was doing it well. It's a great feeling.

It also doesn't…

Week 15 Day 1

I can hardly believe that I have made it to 15 weeks of working out consistently. I've been eating healthy and gluten free for that long too! It's amazing to see how my body has changed and my energy level has been impacted. I am so very happy about what  diligence has done for me. I never want to go back to being inactive. 
I have been thinking about different goals. Finding myself considering how I can best  take my workouts up a notch. Never thought I would see myself be the person that would need to tweak a work out because I've gotten stronger. I have never stuck to anything long enough to see myself get to that point. It is beyond exciting.
I was in the car the other day and was daydreaming about learning something new like kickboxing or MMA. The crazy part about it is that it is totally possible for me to do something like that. I mean, I have been active long enough to where I could see it being a definite possibility. Maybe I should take a look around in my area …
