The past 2 weeks

I’ve been kinda just trudging through the last couple of weeks with all the stress of getting the kids ready for school, school starting, getting used to our new school routine (its different than what I’ve known the last 3 years), the hubby being gone-home again-and about to be gone longer  again….so I really feel like I’ve been just enduring life as its coming at me….Which is fine until now that it’s all catching up with me and I am just tired and in a zombie-fied mode like I need to go into hibernation and catch up on sleep for a week to snap out of it.

Thankfully I have been able to maintain under my WW goal weight this last month but I can feel how easy it can be to get ‘relaxed’ when in ‘maintenance mode’. I really think I just need to slow myself down again, cut out all the excess crap stress, simplify things again in my life, my mind and my home, reprioritze and just get back to the basics. I think doing this will help me feel back in ‘the zone’ as I like to call it–which is not where I have been mentally. I’m ready to refocus because I don’t like this feeling of out of control and brain fog.

Here are some signs on (my new ♥ addiction!) that have really resonated with me today. 😉





and most importantly……

There…..feeling better already.

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.
