Life is about to get very busy

 We are a week into August.  Where did this summer go?  My oldest son (Cameron) and his Grandma come back from Idaho and Washington on Monday. I meet my youngest son's (Aidan) teacher on Tuesday, and he starts school on Thursday.  Cameron and Heather officially start school on the following Monday, but they have some testing and orientation meetings this week.  

And John and I start school a week later.  John has 8 classes (2 semesters) left to finish his bachelor's degree that he started 25 years ago.  I will start my master's degree. We will both be at Liberty University Online in the Life Coaching program.  Since I will be going part time, John and I should finish at the same time. (May 2016---about the time Cameron graduates from high school).

It is going to be a challenge working full time, home schooling two kids, and taking a graduate level class.  It is going to be even more challenging continuing with my weight loss.  I've started walking/running again.  I've been out 3 times this week.  Each time I went 2 1/2 to 3 miles.  (RunKeeper says I did 8.6 miles this week).

We have a new gym opening up soon called Fitness for $10.  The best thing (besides the price!!) is that they are less than 1/2 a mile from my house!!  There are three other gyms in town, and all of them are about 10 miles from home.  Which makes it harder to workout before taking kids to school.  Or going back out after I've come home and had dinner.  

I'm not sure how I'm going to manage it all, but I will find a way. Honestly, I was hoping to be at my goal by now, but sometimes life happens.  And for me to be maintain my weight loss has to be enough for now.



  1. Wow that does sound busy. Something for me, busy is the best way to stay focused. Because I HAVE to be focused to get everything done. Congrats on maintaining your weight loss. I look forward to reading about your continued success.

  3. Just found your page here. I'm on my own fitness journey also. I went from a size 22 to almost a 16. I am looking for people to inspire me and to be inspired by me. Lets see what we can accomplish together


Thanks for your support on this journey. Please be nice (to me and to other commenters).
