To The Working Mom :)

My humble and sincere apologies for never fully appreciating the working mom!

As a stay at home mom for the last 12+ years, I never really understood or gave you enough credit. It’s tough to balance it all… motherly and wifely responsibilities on top of EVERYTHING else! (there would seriously be wayyyy too many things to list here to even come close!)

Now that I’m in the working mom category… (although I do work from home) I am definitely navigating the balancing act!

To say that I’m dealing with stress and emotions would probably be an understatement! I managed to pack on a few unwanted pounds over the last several months and I’m committed to getting them back off! I’m participating in Project 10. Here’s my official video that I submitted!

I’m tracking my progress on my Challenge Timeline HERE!

(I’ve been struggling, so like I said in a previous post, I’m back to blogging for the accountability factor!)

Valentine’s Day – Started off with a great work out at the gym with Torry.

And lots of great food!

(not all the healthiest… but I threw in some veggies and protein for good measure)


Chick Flick! We saw Safe Haven…

I loved it! I’ve read all of the Nicholas Sparks novels, so the movies are fun for me.


Torry worked late…. boys and I went to Academy to look around… they are easily entertained!


Stopped by a store that sells really nice gym equipment… I just need $6900 and this could be all mine! 😉

I love the ARC trainer! My old gym used to have them…. I miss it!

A typical day at work… sharing health and fitness!



Monday the boys were out of school and we took a road trip… to Marble Falls.

It was fun for the boys to be back in their old neighborhood at their favorite fishing dock!

Later that night, we went to San Antonio for the ViSalus Founders Tour. While I’m paying close attention… my hubby is always in the back of the room taking goofy pictures with the co-founders! Thx Nick, Black, and Ryan for being good sports… and not kicking Torry out for being crazy!

 And after getting home at 2:30am and being completely motivated….

I went to one of my favorite places! :)


Woohoo!!! Feels so good to be getting back in the groove!!! :)

About Lexy

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!
