Core De Force day 2

Lost 1.4 overnight. The scale does not define me, but it does define my insulin resistance. I want to lose another 10. 

My fasting blood sugar was 20 points lower than it had been. That’s a huge indicator that this is working!


I was feeling anxious after the workout so I made myself a tropical Shakeology and looked at flights for the Hard Rock Punta Cana trip in April. 


Had some yummy Nom Nom Paleo burgers for dinner. Delicious. 


Ready for the election to be over so we can figure out what’s next.

The day after vacation…

is so wicked hard. Back to schedules and cooking and cleaning. Back to regular life and bills. It feels so awesome to sleep in your own bed again that you just want to stay there. 

All black seemed appropriate for today

I let myself scroll FB for a while to catch up on what I missed in my friends’ feeds while I was away. Then I made myself get up and face the music. Make the bed. Weigh in. Get dressed to work out. Take preworkout. Write out goals for the month while it kicks in. 

  • No spend month – I don’t usually put things in the negative but I need to remind myself to cut back on stupid expenses. Unsubscribing from stupid clothes emails will help. I really don’t need that outfit you’re trying to sell me. 
  • No dairy, gluten or sugar – no, I don’t have celiac officially. I just know that these 3 really do a job on my GI tract and I’m better off without them. 
  • Take the time to tidy KM way. I have started KonMari a couple times but haven’t made it all the way through. The areas I’ve done have stayed awesome. I want my whole house to spark joy. It will also help with #1. So often I’ll buy stuff I already have because I forgot I got it (ask hubby about Phantom of the Opera sometime. He loves to tease me about it.)

Country Heat Day “30”- Live Like You Were Dying

So today is supposed to be day 30. Last week was our annual trip to Oahu and I did NOT stick to containers. I’ll probably add a week of country heat before the Beachbody Health Bet challenge that starts Monday. 

Last week was fun and my mini-me did a lot of the dances with me. 


On Friday morning, I got a call at 3:30 and another at 4:40 from my friend at work who had just done my mammogram 2 weeks ago. The backstory is that I’m 35 with a good family history of breast cancer so they did my baseline mammo early. I half expected something to show up but they said it was fine. Now the doc did a second read and could I come in Monday for additional views and maybe an ultrasound. 😳

I lasted 2 hours holding it in, then had to tell E. Thoughts like “what if this is my last trip?” and “how would I play with the girls differently if it is cancer?”ran through my head. Also thoughts like, “it’s going to be ok. Our team will take care of it, and you might get implants for your trouble!” 😂

I’m glad to report that the follow up views came back fine and I don’t have to come back for 5 years. 

I wanted to hold on to that perspective though. If I did have limited time what would I do differently?
