Bittersweet anniversary

Happy Friday!!!
Today is a special day. It marks the 11th anniversary of my Air Force retirement. It’s always a bittersweet day for me, I’ll be honest.
But I do believe I’m finally where I’m meant to be, and for that I am truly thankful.
Today was a nice and easy workout of core, light weights and my plank. I decided to exercise my brain and unplug and read for a couple hours instead.
How about you?

I don’t HAVE to, I GET to…

Hey gang!!!

I’ll admit I’ve lacked motivation lately. Post Covid + menopause has really kicked my butt. My body is hanging on for dear life to the 7-8 lbs I gained, and it’s bugging the daylights out of my self esteem.
But while driving to work today, I saw a cardinal that crossed my path, and I decided today was going to be a good day, and you know what? It was a great day!
Another cardinal crossed my path driving home, and I decided to take my friend’s advice and celebrate the joy that I GET to run/walk.
I used that to motivate me to get moving and lose these lbs somehow. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
How was your day? Tell me something good!!

Monday updates

Happy Monday!! We’re back from visiting my husband’s family in California and it was so nice to reconnect. My MIL has been sick so it meant so much to them and us to visit.
Also, I had a pretty bad scare last week. I went in for lab work for a very overdue checkup, and my initial results came back showing I had diabetes. I wasn’t quite sure how to process it, as I eat quite healthy, exercise and rarely eat sweets.
Well, it perplexed my doctor as well, so she reran the test. Come to find out the entire run that day needed to be repeated due to faulty instruments. Whewwwww.
My results came back normal the second time around.

A huge shout out to you all for all the awesome support. It goes to show the power of prayers and good juju is real!! Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
Here’s tonight’s reminder, plank, and wall sit (new streak!).

Fresh air and nature does wonders for the soul.

I find great peace when I’m out in nature. Be it on the beach, trails, or wherever-I’m happiest outside. So with the recent stressors we’ve got lately, my hubby decided to plan a picnic for us since we’ve got some cooler weather. We weren’t dressed for it, but we were having so much fun that we walked/hiked 3 1/2 miles. Here’s some of my favorite pics!!
