Fitness Goals

This year I'm working on setting goals and following through, so the plan is to put it all on paper and have a 3 month check up.
My first goal is fitness.  I've been into fitness and working on my personal fitness for several years, but honestly, I haven't stuck to it.  I've jumped in and jumped out.  So this year, I am working to stay in!

This isn't easy for me.  I have a million excuses, like:

1- I don't have time
2 - I'm too tired
3 - Its not working fast enough
4 - so what if I skip a day

So many reasons to not stick to a fitness routine, but there are also many more reasons to stick to it!

1 - Feel better
2 - have more energy
3 - be healthier
4 - might help me live a longer and great life
5 - look better 
6 - lose weight
7 - will look great in a bikini
8 - I want to be the hot mom, LMAO
9 - no more struggles with clothes shopping
10 - set a good example for my kids
11 - inspire others

And I know I can write down more reasons why being active and exercising will be great for me, but these are my top reasons.  I've even gotten hubby back on board with the fitness routines, although it's been a slow start for him.  It is a work in progress.  Nobody starts a workout program knowing everything and doing all of the moves without stopping - I stop.  I stop for water, to take a breather.  It's not easy, but I keep going.  As time goes on I will get better and will take fewer breaks.  I'm aiming to get through every workout without stopping! LOL

I would love to help others and that is why I post and share my journey.  

I'm far from perfect.  
I get tired
I'm not fit
I'm overweight
I don't eat well all the time
I make bad choices

It's a daily struggle and every day I wake up and decide to workout and decide to stick to my nutrition plan.

I have good days and I have bad days.
Just like everyone else.
Just like you.

I work to build a team of women who can help me and let me help them with fitness and nutrition.
We can push and inspire each other.
We can learn together and from each other.

If you'd like to be part of my team, drop a comment below.
If you'd like to learn about my fitness & nutrition programs that I follow, drop a comment below.
You don't need a gym and you don't need an hour or more.

I'd love to hear from you!
What do you struggle with?
What is holding you back from a better fitness & nutrition routine?

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.

After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.

Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
