How Was My Week?

Um… can I skip today’s Fitness Friday? <<—- Does that tell you how my week was?!? It was blah. As far as diet went, I was on track. As far as fitness went – I was dead. I blame half of this on the weather. It’s been in the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s here. I can handle 50’s – I don’t like it that cold, but I can handle it and still manage to get out. Below that though, it’s not happening. The other half of my excuses have to do with running around with my head cut off this week. I do daycare out of my home during the daytime, I’m off around 5:30pm. Once I’m done, my own kids have had me running and running this week. I can’t seem to catch a break. I’ve been late on blog deadlines because of this too. By the time 9pm rolls around, I am exhausted. And unfortunately, Jack is a bad sleeper due to his Down Syndrome. He sleeps good until about 10pm and then he’s up and down all night and I really need to be here for him… meaning, I can’t leave to go to the gym that late. And speaking of the gym – we renewed our memberships on Wednesday. I’m super excited that – providing I can make time for it.

My Plans for Next Week:

  • I plan on boosting my water intake and I’d like to eat lighter to boost my system into gear. I’m going to make a batch of my healthy egg white ‘muffins’ tomorrow. Those are low calorie but filling and tasty.
  • I plan on making it to the gym all week too. I’d like to run for an hour and then do weights. Wish me luck, we’ll see how that goes.

Other Health and Fitness Link-Up’s

I’m in a bunch of fitness groups and am finding other health and fitness link up’s. One I found this week was Ashley from Training Thursday’s. I’m also linking up at Running4Cupcakes and Housewife Glamour. Check out their weekly posts if you get a chance.


Need More Motivation?

I do!

In my groups, I find and save the motivational images that are posted, I thought I’d share a few that I could really use this week:

***By the way, I’m looking for HEALTHY SLOW COOKER recipes – if you have any, share them! I don’t have time to cook, I need to use my slow cooker. Between therapy coming over all week long for Jack, and doing daycare during the day time, I just don’t have time to “cook”. Plus slow cooker meals seems to feed my family of 8, and if not, I just double the recipe.

***I am also looking for HEALTHY SMOOTHIE or JUICING recipes that I can give Jack. He sees a nutritionist once a month and we’re trying to get more calories, fat and nutrition into him. If you have a healthy recipe, please share!


  1. Thanks for the shout out! Man you sure are busy good for you for at least trying to get out. On of my favorite sayings I have found for motivation is “I would get much more satisfaction if calories screamed as I burned them off” Baby steps though! Glad I found your blog (or you found mine) and we can help each other!

  2. I had a similar week – my workouts were pretty underwhelming too. There’s no use worrying about that though, this coming week I’m going to make a better effort at getting my workouts in. Good luck!

  3. love those egg white muffins.

    Only thing I do with my slow cooker is make chicken or chilli. Would love some new recipes.
