Time for another edition of the Weekly Workout Linkup!  Click on the “Add a Link” button at the bottom of this post and share your workout posts.  Then take a few minutes to visit the other links and support our community.


This week was a pretty good one for my workouts, though not for my eating.  I am getting in my three strength training sessions a week and working on increasing my run mileage.  It’s slow, but it is a good start.


Over the next few weeks the strength and running is where my focus will be.  After the new year I plan to add in biking and swimming.  Right now I just want to be consistent and not lose time and fitness over the holidays!

What are your goals through the holidays?

Monday Motivation: Enjoy Where You Are

by Stephanie December 8, 2014

  This is an important message.  Especially in the midst of the holiday season, when we are inching towards the new year and thoughts of resolutions and what we did or didn’t accomplish this year. Your life is a journey and each step is important.  Where you are right now is worth enjoying.  Don’t let […]

Weigh In 2

by Stephanie December 4, 2014

I’m here for my post-Thanksgiving weekend weigh in!  It’s a scary thing and it would be easier to not weigh myself at all rather than face the scale.  That’s what I’ve been thinking all week.  BUT, ignoring it won’t change it.  So this morning I sucked it up, stripped down, and hit the scale. Woo […]

Thanksgiving Fun in Nashville

by Stephanie December 2, 2014

Usually my immediate family does Thanksgiving at home with just the six of us.  Instead of doing that this year we went to Nashville.  The first couple of days were just Mom, Dad, my sister, and I.  The rest of the weekend was spent with all of the immediate family (including my cutie-patootie nephew) plus […]

Weigh In 1

by Stephanie November 20, 2014

Since I came clean last week, I thought I would keep the transparency going. This week I tracked my food (most of the time).  I drank less pop.  I chose to make food at home rather than pick up fast food or order in. This week I took responsibility and took back control of my […]

Thoughts and Things

by Stephanie November 19, 2014

I feel like I have a lot of random thoughts in my head and no attention span to write a focused post.  So this is just going to be me chatting about what’s been going on with me.  Pull up a couch, a blanket, and some hot cocoa because it’s cold here in the Midwest! […]

Coming Clean: A New Baseline

by Stephanie November 13, 2014

Part of my commitment to consistency is blogging a minimum of three days each week.  That means I have to come clean. I’ve been hiding.  I’ve been quiet, not blogging, not wanting to admit something.  And it’s not easy. I’m far from where I used to be. I’ve been bouncing around my heaviest weight for nearly […]
