The Last #15×15 Check-in

 

It is finished! The last day of my challenge was yesterday, now I can let loose. Not really. I didn’t achieve my #15×15 goal, to lose 15 pounds by September 15. I could have tried harder. I could have quit coffee, eaten more salad, and skipped the french silk pie,…

#15×15 Check-in: A Lazy Week

 

This past week I have just been pretty lazy, on my challenge anyways. I didn’t even try to get my water intake each day, my exercise was down, and eating was under control, but not great. I only have one more week until my #15×15 challenge is over. I have…

#15×15 Check-in: 15 Years and it Fits!

 

There was one picture I wanted to take last year, because it was evidence of my goal achievements. Then, before I had time to make a blog post of it, I felt the need to take a blogging break and never posted it. Last week was my 15th wedding anniversary,…

#15×15 Check-in: Well, This is Embarrassing

 

I’m just going to say it right away and get it over with. I gained 4 pounds this week. (running to hide in a corner) I gained 4 pounds this week! I guess that’s what happens when you stop working toward a goal. I didn’t exercise much because I wasn’t…

#15×15 Check-in: Step Away From the Roller Coaster

 

This week was full of fun… and pain. I have been having some odd foot pain. It hasn’t affected my running but usually starts hurting later in the day. As if foot pain wasn’t enough, I decided to join my kids on one roller coaster ride this week and the…

This weekend I finished my 9 week C25k training. I am now able to jog for a full 30 minutes! It actually took me a few extra weeks, with hot weather, sickness, etc., but I did it! I finished, but I’m not done. I can’t just stop now that I’ve…

Our 2013-2014 Homeschool Curriculum

 

A few years ago I thought I was set. I thought I had the perfect curriculum choices for my family. The rest of this homeschool journey would be easy, just get the next level of this book and I’m done. I found out quickly that that was not going to work….

How we started homeschooling : Part 2

 

Abigail was turning five and we needed to make a decision about school for Kindergarten. I had already decided homeschooling was not for me, so we had to find another option. We looked at the christian school but the tuition was just too much for our little budget to handle….

#15×15 Weekly Check In: This is Hard Work and New Goals

 

It’s been over a month since I started my #15×15 challenge, so I thought it was about time to step up my challenge. Before I get to my goals I want to share what I’ve been feeling the last few days. Losing weight and living healthier is HARD WORK! I…

How We Started Homeschooling : Part 1

 

I used to share a lot more about homeschooling here, but it’s been a while. It’s such a big part of our life that I really want to start sharing again. I’ve decided to start at the beginning. I think it’s always interesting to see how other people started homeschooling…
