A short video I made for my students


I made this video for my students, but I thought it was also a nice video to share with anyone who needs a little motivational reminder!

I'm also adding another short presentation, because I need to see how it works in a blog.....

What?? Another post?

Hello again! I'm not sure where all my energy is coming from this week. Maybe it's due to the fact that I was home 4 out of 5 school days because of "incliment weather." Honestly, I've been home so much this week that I've really started tapping into things that I've let fall by the wayside.

I was looking through my old posts and some of them really made me laugh at myself. I'm pretty sure I thought I was waaaaayyyyyy funnier than I was/am! Oh well, some of my old posts make me giggle!

I do have to admit that I need to work hard to get back to being that girl, with that foucs, that drive, and that determination! Below are links to a few of my favorite posts.

I think my absolute favorite thing I ever did was a pullup..... I know it seems crazy, but I've gotten lazy and lost the ability to do a pullup completely on my own. This post has a short, choppy video of that first pullup. OH..... sorry it's sideways. Janelle and I could not figure out how to rotate that darn video from her phone to my computer!

I also really like this post. After I lost 100 pounds, Janelle and I decided that we should do some fancy pictures. I like this post because I was so happy! I did lose about 35 pounds more after that, but that first 100 pounds was awesome. Truth.... I (AGAIN) need to get off those 35 pounds.....

And this post. This is the post that started the whole thing.....

I think I need to me more focused on this blog. I really think it kept me accountable! Hey! Find me on Facebook!

I'm a bad blogger!

Hey folks! I have been swept up in the world of Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.....

I've kind of abandoned my blog on a regular basis. BUT.... I do manage to hop on here from time to time and do a little reading. (Reading blogs about weighloss is way better than reading the real news!)

I must admit, I am on here posting today for other puposes as well. I am enrolled in a technology course at my local community college. I have to renew my professional teaching license and I'm no longer working in a k-12 setting. I moved into adult education and my PD there does not count toward my PD for licensure renewal.... go figure. Anyway, I welcome a brush up on technology.

SOOOO, I do have some 2015 goals. I have no problem going to the gym. I love going to the gym. I love lifing heavy. I'm just a hot mess when it comes to food. I love, love, love food. I love eating! I'm slowly getting back on track. I'm doing pretty good. Last week, I was with Janelle and Jenna doing meal prep for the week.
Here we are making chicken and veggies for our lunches.
Ohhh and a crap load of sweet potatoes! 
We are getting together again this week to make more chicken and veggies....... surprise, right? I have a different recipe. So chicken and different veggies!

It was really fun and really fast. We prepped meals for 3 people in about and hour and a half. We even screwed around for a while in there. It would have taken me so long to get all of this ready by myself. Divide and conquer, right?

I keep thinking I need to make this a regular thing in my life again. There is something nice about telling my random workout and food stories to people on the interent!
