Family time and NEW weight loss plan begins

It’s been awhile!  I need to work on being more consistent with my writing!  Hopefully, August 1st I’ll be back in the swing of things and my life will be more organized.  July has been a roller coaster of events!  I can’t believe it’s almost over.  I consolidated a few family photos that we’ve taken over the past couple weeks.  I have 3 siblings that live out of state and all three of them have been in town overlapping each other.  My last brother will go home this Saturday and then we’ll be business as usual!  We’re kind of in a frazzled state right now!  However, it has been heaven to have them here.  I LOVE seeing my Mom so happy and to see my brother that lives in Georgia.  He stayed with us for 3 days and he is a ray of sunshine!  I should have commented on each photo.  This will have to do!  First picture is some of us hiking Ensign Peak that overlooks the Salt Lake Valley.  Second is a serious card playing game!  And third, is the family up the canyon roasting hot dogs and smores over the fire.



The next set up pictures is girl night at Gardner Village and a Mom and Daughter shot!  I love them!  Then, a picture of us at the Conference Center for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir concert that I always love and look forward to!  And the bottom shot is a family picture minus one brother that we’ll photo shop in!  We’re a picture taking and memory remembering family!  Wonderful times together!




Recently, we spent 4 days in Lake Powell with our friends!  We had a great time.  It was a lot of work and a lot of play.  We are all sun tanned to a crisp.  I love Lake Powell.  It is so beautiful!!  We didn’t take too many pictures due to lack of anything high tech and phones dying.  We were hard core campers.  The first night a terrible wind storm broke out and blew for several hours.  Sand everywhere.  My little ones were scared and not too happy but the rest of the trip was very pleasant and HOT!  Lots of time in the sun and water.  It was nice to come home and step on my comfy carpet!


I’m starting serious fitness business on August 1st.  My 3 month plan will begin.  I’ll give the full details on August 1st.  It’s gonna be GOOD!!  Think WHOLE 30 for August!  Well, I need to get going.  Museum today and family dinner tonight!  Party On!!!  Till next time…Work Hard!

7 week shape up plan

I need to kick it in high gear for the next several weeks.  I’ve always got some sort of action plan in my brain.  I just need to DO IT!!!  I require a little motivation, just like everyone.  I came up with a point system and if I stick to my plan 95% of the time I will reward myself!  Most likely that will be in the form of a clothing item of sorts (:  Of course (husband) it will be something I REALLY NEED!!!  The real reason I need to get serious with my fit life is I’ll be blissfully enjoying THIS in 7 short WEEKS for a VERY MUCH REQUIRED R&R trip!!!





1-WATER (64-80 ounces) at least daily.  Vitamins and supplements everyday!!!

2-NO white sugar or white flour

3-Stop eating each day by 7:30 p.m.

4-Aim for 7 hours of sleep every night

5-Keep a food diary


1-Jamie Eason’s Live Fit plan starting on WEEK 6, which includes running 4 days a week as well.

Sounds simple enough?  Another BIG deal I’m going to do is…..DITCH THE SCALE!!!!  I know I’ve always thought the scale was a good indicator of weight loss, but I’m trying a different approach to things.  I’m going to take a picture of me each week (I probably won’t post them :)) and track my progress by how my clothes fit.  We’ll see.  Here is the point system.  I’ll do my workouts ALWAYS.  I only need help with PART 1!  So, 5 points for everyday.  That equals out to be 245 points for 7 weeks.  I can miss 12 points to keep it at 95%!!!  Let’s do this.

I think that’s about it for today.  I need to post about a TON of smoothies and LEGIT treats SOON.  Life is a little crazy busy for the next few weeks around here.  Kids are all over the place.  Yesterday a few friends came over for dinner.  Check out this awesome carrot cake I made from scratch.  It was YUM!!
