A lil inspiration goes a long way!

For the last couple of years, I have been on the exercise & weight loss band wagon.  Needless to say, I fall off & can never seem to catch up to it.  Well, here I am again, only this time with help of inspiration staying on until my destination "Healthy lifestyle".
I will be keeping a journal of my food and exercise plans.  I want to keep track of my trial and errors as well as my success.  Inspiration is my Motivation!

Victory vs Defeat

We are taught that winning is everything.  But in essence, what competetion would we have if we walked away with a trophy everytime.
This past weekend my sons travel Baseball team traveled about a 100 miles for the Summer Nationals tournament in Georgia.  Although, we came home empty handed,  the boys did their best and played hard. We try to instill in each boy that winning isn't everything in hopes that they learn from the errors.

College drop off

This past weekend we dropped our middle son off at college for the summer semester. I am so happy he chose a college 40 minutes from our home and 15 minutes from my job..  He is the 2nd child going away, so this time I was not a basket case.  I guess you could say it gets easier, however, I will miss him dearly because I could always count on him for everything.
I couldn't be prouder of him, for all his accomplishments so far and the right direction he is heading.  I know one day he will be a great psychologist!

My First Lozilu 5K Mud Run

This past April I was invited by a friend to do a mud run. Me?  Run?  With mud involved? Ummm No thank you.  I gave it some thought and said hey what the heck, why not, the worst that could happen is I wont be able to complete it and look like an arse doing so.  It really wasn't as bad as I imagined, it was really really fun and I am so glad I did it.

The Lozilu 5k Mud Run is an all ladies run for a great cause, with proceeds going  to children fighting cancer.  I had to do this run for the children even if it meant my out of shape butt had to run in the mud. All in all it was a great event filled with obstacle course and mud pits. I am looking forward to doing another 5k mud run this fall.

Wedding Link Up


So I thought this link up was so cute...Gosh wow My wedding to Danny will be 16 years on August 16. We got married in 1997.  Wow before facebook, Instagram and  inexpensive digital cameras hence the picture below..

We pretty much had to pay for our wedding ourselves and I think it turned out to be a very nice venue considering we were on a budget.
We got married in a catholic church in our hometown of Perth Amboy NJ
Our reception was in a bar that had a hall in the back called the Broadway Inn.
The colors were lavender & champagne my favorite colors.
We had a best man/maid of honor , matron of honor, flower girl and ring bearer.
We walked in to what should have been our First Dance song and our First Dance song was the song we should have walked into as Mr & Mrs ... the DJ screwed that up. 
Our honeymoon was to the Jersey Shore i.e...Wildwood, Atlantic City and Seaside...I laugh as I type because it was way before the fist pumping started...hahah
All in all it was quaint nice day and I don't regret a single thing about it, I wouldn't change any of it, it was who we were back then.
Looking forward to our 25th wedding Anniversary where I implement Social Media. ha!


Another go at blogging...

Hi There,
Its been a lil while since I posted an entry, but know that I have been reading lots of blogs it can be so addicting..and the more I have been reading blogs the more I am like, hey, I can do this.
It wasn't until I read a popular blog which gave me inspiration as well as amazing tips on creating a blog. 
One particular tip that I was never doing was "Making Time" to post.  If you walked a day in my shoes, you'd probably wonder if I sleep.
My schedule consists of:
6:00am Rise and Shine
7:15am Leave for my 1:15hr commute
8:30am-5:30pm Work Work Work
5:30pm 1hr commute home
6:30pm-9:30 pm baseball practice for my son (who played this spring on a Rec, Travel and now Allstar team) if there is a game even later. But thats another post all together.
10:00pm get home and cleanup and getting things ready for another day.
11:00pm-12am Read blogs
12am Night Night
Some may think I am crazy but a moms gotta work, watch her kid play ball..and all that jazz in between..
Yay I've felt like I "made time"to blog. I can do this...Well thats all for now...

Spring is here!

This is the first time I decided to link up with Laura's weekly challenge.  I am excited about entering!  I am not a photographer just a girl who likes to snap pics here and there!  I am submitting a picture of these pretty flowers one of my parents gave me as a symbol of her appreciation!  That was so sweet of her and  very sweet my flowers are!
