Family, Fitness and Fun


Happy Friday Ya’ll! We are adjusting to our daily routine after returning from our camping trip at Yosemite.  Balancing family fun, homeschooling lessons, fitting in fitness and more… it is always a juggle.  Slowly but surely we are getting things done. This week Daddy is home, Yay!  This good thing is said with pause because he is working from home.  Working from home while homeschooling three monkeys… is an interesting juggling adventure for sure!  It is hard not to play with him (or share parenting responsibilities) when Daddy is home. We Continue Reading

The Scoop on the Polar Loop

Today I am going to give you the scoop on the polar loop.  I am a Polar Ambassador and received the loop to use and track my daily activity.  I love fitness trackers and I am a huge fan of Polar products as a whole.  I have tried a variety of fitness trackers over the years, but I truly believe that the Polar Loop is the best multifunctional activity tracker on the market.

Life as I Know It


Why is it that some days are totally AWESOME and other days totally FAIL!?  That seems to be the story of my rollercoaster life lately.  Juggling family life, homeschooling, fitness, growing my faith, and oh… trying to figure out when/how to pack for a cross country move.  Busy.  Preoccupied.  Overwhelmed.  Rocking it and flopping it.  I never know what the day will hold. Some days I totally rock as a parent… and other days I totally FAIL!  Some days (actually most days) the moment I think, “Hey I am totally rocking this day! It is going to be Continue Reading

Ditch The Scale and Find Happiness

Ditch the scale

I am a victim to my scale.  I have a love hate relationship with it.  I love when it tells me a good number and hate it when it tells me a larger number.  Funny how a simple machine can dictate my happiness.  Today, my friend Janice will be sharing her story and experience how she ditched the scale to find happiness. Back in December 2009 I did something drastic – I threw out my scale. Frustrated with my creeping weight, I joined an online weight loss support group.  The first three things I learned from the group was: Weigh yourself Continue Reading

3 Simple Healthy Habits to Start Your Day


We have hit one of the busiest seasons of our summer the past few days.  Between vacation, camping, swim lessons, VBS, play dates and more… our schedule has been super busy.  Starting the day off on the right foot helps everyone to stay balanced. When we take the extra few minutes out of the chaos to make sure we feed our body, soul, and mind… the rest of the day seemingly falls in to place.  Yes there are hiccups… it is life after all. My children wake early.  Like before the sun early.  Knowing this and knowing that in order for me to get a Continue Reading
