30 Day Workout Challenge ~ Day 24

I’m on Day 24 of my 30 Day Workout Challenge.  At the beginning of this challenge – I told myself I was going to weigh myself once a week.  So after busting my bootie each week – I would get on the scale on Saturday morning (telling myself in my head…light as a feather…thin as a board ~ remember saying that when you were younger?) and I was disappointed 2 weekends in a row. So I decided ~ forget the…

{Video} “Elfing” in progress

Click Here is the Elfing in progress.  I have to apologize – I’m still trying to figure out the entire video thing on my iPhone.  So you will have to turn your head to the side to see the first part of the video.  LOL  Tucker was about to run across the street and then the next door neighbor came out so this is the edited version.  He takes his “Elfing” very seriously and didn’t want to…

30 Days of Workouts – 1 week later

I’m on day 8 of the 30 days of workouts and I have to say…it’s going really well.  I feel great.  Haven’t lost a pound which is a bit frustrating…but I just need to stick with it.On day 6 I had to get my workout done early and that was a little tough.  It’s amazing the conversations you have in your mind when you don’t want to do something.  But – if you have the conversation long enough -…
