5K Walk for Candi


The sweetest lady from church is battling breast cancer AGAIN – she is my girls Primary teacher at church so when we heard there was a group being organized to walk for her at the D’Feet Breast Cancer  Fun Run/Walk for our county-  I knew we had to make it a point to be there to show her our support and love. You can click the link above to donate to help find a cure for breast cancer or you can contact me at if you would like to know how you can donate directly to Candi’s family to help with their bills.

My girls, Aunt Sissy, and myself with Candi 😉


Carman, Candi, & Debbi

these girls are in her class at church and held hands the ENTIRE 5K! too cute!


even some of our awesome youth came out and walked to support her!


Candi getting group loves from her girls – the smile on her face is priceless. Made it worth it to be there. 😉


they ran, walked, danced, held hands all together for majority of the walk 😉

Meanwhile back at home the boys were having a MEN ONLY morning…….



too cute! 😉


After we got back home from the walk and rested a bit……

Courtney, my aunt and I headed up to the Temple for the afternoon to do some work for some of our family names.

You can click HERE to see why we go to the temple. It was so nice to be in that peaceful, quiet holy house and away from the craziness of the world for a few hours.

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
