My Day Friday Accountability Check In: Week 13

So, last week was pretty bad. I had a disappointing weigh-in and I was frustrated with all the self-sabotaging I was doing.

This week was a turn around!

I started my 100 Days of 100 Kettlebell Swings, and it did wonders for my motivation and drive.

I’m pretty optimistic this week, and I can’t wait to see how it goes…

Ramblings from a stressed-out WAHM while potty training… {My Day Friday Accountability Check In: Week 12}

My day Friday accountability check in week 12

It’s crazy how a week can go by so fast and when you look back so many little things lead to it being a complete disaster without you even knowing…

This was a week where I did a lot of damage without even realizing it. How many of those did I have without paying any attention that lead me to where I am today?

I barely want to write about it… I’m discouraged and disappointed about my lack of success lately…

Let’s just get it over with…

Running Essentials and Must-Haves {Part 1: Accessories}

If you would have told me anytime prior to 5 years ago that I would voluntarily go running and that I would look forward to it and enjoy it, I would have thought you were nuts!

I was the kid who dreaded the mile in gym class and looked for any excuse to get out of it. It wasn’t until I was in the best shape of my life in grad school that I ran my first mile without walking… And I wouldn’t say I enjoyed it…

Since having my two little ones and finding the importance of a free workout I can do with the kids, I have come to love running and love all my must-have accessories for running. I have some things that I’ve found so helpful, I just have to share them! I also have a must-have that I need to share with my fellow curvier runners or Mommas struggling with the baby pooch and the multiple issues it causes as you run.

My Day Friday Accountability Check In: Week 10

After once again skipping a week for my accountability check in, you can guess how I’m doing…

The busy summer, along with the stress of work, has me saying a lot of maybe tomorrow‘s and doing a bit of emotional eating. I’m determined to be honest with myself and put the full story out there. So often I will unconsciously hide all the rough moments, but here they are….

My Day Friday Accountability Check-In: Week 8

I’m not letting this one slip!

Summer has me skipping posts, but I’m checking in because I had a bad week and I’m turning it around.

Accountability Check-in Week 8

I made my DietBet weigh out last week, but I was at the cabin which is always a struggle. I decided to stick to a strict eating plan, hoping it would help. Of course, I’m sure many of you can relate to what happens after it’s over. I went nuts and really struggled to get back on track!

I started some new DietBets for the accountability and support and weighed-in at nearly the same spot I started last time… 🙁 I think that brought my total to only about two pounds lost since the beginning of last month…

All that aside, I’ve been having a great week now!

I’m on week 5 of C25K and it’s feeling really good! I actually got in a mile run to the playground, a mile run back from the playground, and did my C25K stroller-free in the evening. Today, I cut the grass for my workout.

I technically logged into MFP over 60 days in a row, but often I wasn’t tracking the evenings when I most needed it. I’m tracking as much as possible and my goal this week is to track all dinners.

I feel like I’m in a much better place right now. Things get really busy and I let things slide, but I’m human and I’m doing my best to balance.

Should we see how I did?

Accountability Check-in Week 8

Going in the right direction soon, I’m sure.

I could really use more support and accountability. Any of you have link-ups appropriate for posts like this? I could use some ideas?

Have a great weekend!
