I think I have the Janu-weary blahs.  I am a Work-in-Progress this month.I will kick this…I just need a little ‘hibernation’ time. 😉  I am taking this entire month to recover, get myself physically and mentally organized, and figure out how to incorporate my New Years Resolutions and goals  into my daily routine so that I can make the rest of this year an AWESOME year! 😉

I won’t bore you with all of my hideous crappy food pics……but I’ll give ya the highlights and lowdown of the last few days.


breakfast – oatmeal with banana

**I took off doing the burpee challenge for 2 weeks because of my shoulder pain – so I had to face the music and add up how many burpees I need to catch up on…….1,160 burpees folks. :(   Got 200 of those done today.

Zonebar snack on the way to take Dev and Gabe to the dentist

since he just turned 4 this is his first time ever seeing the dentist – and he laid there like a CHAMP! He did better than I do!! He didn’t move a muscle and was relaxed as could be while they did everything they needed to do to clean his teeth. It was too cute!! The assistants and the dentist were cracking up in awe! my big boy!


came home and had a flat out bread pizza for lunch with olive oil and added this Sicilian seasoning to it –  it was SO GOOD!!!


dessert – strawberries with FF rediwhip

was hungry ALLL day long!!!

1/2 oz almonds

bites of Homemade Vanilla Blue Bell ice cream


we took the kids to Sonic for dinner so they could spend some gift cards they got for Christmas. I had a jr burger and ate a few of the kids tater tots.

had a cheese stick later at home – still could not get satisfied. After talking to my hubby about his day he said he had the same problem and was starving all day long too. :/



oatmeal with banana for breakfast

Attended my WW meeting

was so happy I got a chance to meet up with my bestie from high school and her husband for lunch – they were in our neck of the woods for an appointment

She is doing AWESOME in her weight loss journey as well and I am soooo proud of her!! She looks awesome!!!

We ate at Gringo’s and I had too many chips and salsa……..and then chicken fajita salad with Amazon dressing that I dipped my fork into instead of pouring it on my salad.

-Junior mints I grabbed while in the store picking up a few things – big mistake – at the whole box throughout the rest of the afternoon.

-afternoon snack – Chocolate Carmel Cluster Zone bar

-Had Faith in God Activity Days cleaning the nursery toys at the church. Came home and got the kids situated so I could go to  a Parenting class taught by my friend Debbi and her husband.

-Dinner was a Strawberry yogurt ZonePerfect bar cause I had no time to fix myself anything to eat if I wanted to be on time.

-Refreshements after the class- no bake cookie, and a Salted Carmel Butter Bar – YUM-O!!!



* Did days 72 and 73 burpees + 60 more = 205 total today  (only 900 left to catch up on)

-Breakfast – only had a few bites of my protein waffle. Ended up baking chocolate chunk cookies and ate a little cookie dough and a cookie fresh out of the oven.

Zone bar snack after helping our friends clean their house for a couple of hours


my hubby and I ran a few errands and stopped at Five Guys for a late lunch date – I had the jr bacon burger and we shared some cajun fries.

met up with our running gals later in the evening for a fro yo farewell party to Debbi

the gang 😉

hershey kiss and cake batter fro yo with fruit, mini chocolate chips and chocolate drizzle

I am going to miss this AMAZING woman and friend! Her wisdom and amazing spiritual strength and perspectives has literally changed my life.



*Ran an early 5 miles with our running gals – it was our last run with Debbi :**(

*Came home and did my Day 75 timed Burpees for the Challenge – I completed them in 6:50

post workout – a MUCH needed green protein smoothie

*recipe – 1c water, 1 frozen banana, 1 scoop ISO 100 chocolate whey protein, 2 HUGE handfuls of fresh spinach, a little vanilla, and a few ice cubes……SOOOO good and refreshing!

had a few venison/pork sausage patties from the fresh sausage that my brother in law gave us – SOOOO good!


couldn’t get satisfied again – pb and banana snack

my aunt was in town visiting and took the 3 little ones out to Berrylicious for a treat – they brought me back my fav flavors – hershey kiss and cake batter with strawberries

it was such a nice and relaxing family Saturday – we hung out and caught up on some of our fav shows

snacked on candy that got brought into my house by certain mentioned above visitor! 😉 Reeses, Kit Kats, Turtles, and more cookies.

We watched the last quarter of  Saints vs 49er’s game on their live online blog….since we don’t have cable or regular tv, I decided to head out and finally get ourselves a digital antenna so we can watch our beloved Texans play tomorrow!!!! When  I left the Saints were ahead – when I got to Best Buy there was a crowd of people standing in front of one of their tv’s as it was the last few seconds of the game and the 49rs had just scored and pulled ahead again winning the game!!!! Unbelieveable.


dinner – our fav mexican restaurant La Brisa To Go cause my hubby is in bed down in back in lots of pain. :(

Looking forward to the Sabbath and more relaxing family time tomorrow. 😉

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 carman@firelitesfire.com 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 😉

Candi, her daughter, and the girls


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.

{was getting super tired- wishing I could take a power nap}

Had Court put turkey burgers in the oven while we were on our way home only to find out when I got home that they weren’t cooking cause something in the oven broke ……What the heck?! ugh.


grabbed a grilled chicken sandwich on the way to the temple instead – 9 /fries – 3 with a coke zero


several hours later when we got out of the temple we were hon-gry!  had some of these bars in my purse – 2

SUPER yummy!!!

*Note to self – get the hamburger when you are hungry for the hamburger!!!!!!!!


I’m Back!! Finally!

I’m back!!!!!!   Aren’t y’all proud?! 😉

tried Tony Horton’s P90X Stretch cause I have been super sore but more STIFF than anything from Spin and BodyPump earlier this week. It was really good and helped stretch a lot of my reallllllyy sore areas. I really liked how the tip of the day for this workout was to focus on *breathing*……once I really focused on it I could tell a HUGE difference!

as I type this……banana w/ nutella – 5pts+

**confessional – I cannot buy nutella and have it in my house ANYMORE! I swear I have become a ‘closet’ nutella eat-it-with-a-spoon- eater!!!  The past couple weeks the BLT’s {bites, licks, & tastes} of everything are what are adding up and making me  backslide into snacking too much!! I am starting to recognize ‘new trigger’ foods that I cannot buy and keep in my house because when I’m tired, bored, lonely, emotional, stressed, or just missing my husband…….this is the kind of stuff I grab because in the beginning I think one bite is no big deal…..its just a ‘bite’……well then that ‘bite’ adds up to alotta points and then you are not getting the results you want!!! Back to reality.**
