Hanging in- and updates

Hi Everyone! I am just doing a quick check in to let you know I am still alive.

Work on the house is going at light speed. Lighting is done, drywall is up, cabinets are ordered and all selections (like carpet and granite) are done.

We are hoping to be back in the house by beginning of June which would then give me approx 2 months to start P90X all over to get into shape (again) for my sisters wedding. I can do it.

It has been quite a struggle but I am getting thru it. I can only say that I pray for those out west of us that have had to endure approx 120 tornados this past weekend.

On the downside, I know that I will have a whole new set of challenges when we move back in. We will literally have no neighbors around us for at least 4 more months so I know the reality and isolation will be taking its toll on us. Thankfully the neighbors have been great and I have met so many friends thru the Facebook board that they set up for our subdivision.

Anyways...just thought I would let you know how I am doing. Not staying so focused on dieting right now but I did do a 5k run this weekend (woo hoo) with my father in law and my brother in law. I ran at my father in laws pace and we finished under 40 minutes. Not bad for his first 5k ever.

June I will be signing up for my first half marathon. I figured, what the hell. So I will be hitting the streets to start training for that puppy and hopefully whip my body back into shape.

I can definitely tell you that by not eating clean, I have gained a pooch in my belly back. Bad, bad, bad but it is extreme in circumstance and I am really not fretting it.

Have a great day all! I am signing off for now!


  1. What have you been able to do I'm sure is more than what some people in your circumstances would push themselves to do. You definitely need the exercise to release the stress you must be experiencing! Glad to hear that the renovations are going well. The silver lining in all of this was the car situation and the brand-new house! Can't wait to see more pictures!

  2. Glad things are going better for you! 2 months is PLENTY of time to get back on track and if you were able to do it before, you'll do it again!

    Hope you post again soon! :)

  3. I'm so glad to hear from you!!! Youa re amazing and I am happy to know you!!

  4. Thanks for the support everyone. Very kind words! I am glad that I am on this journey and that I decided to start blogging. Even though I am having setbacks right now with not being able to eat as healthy as I want and exercise much, I know with your support I will be able to get back on track quickly.
