Starting Over…Again

You heard that right…starting over…again.

Starting Over...AgainI think if you have not hard to re-start or change gears while doing what you want, you are a lair. I really do. Sorry! I think that we all face challenges in life that hold us back and tell us “It will happen, just not going this direction.”


I always get so pissed when that happens, and I need to take a step back and think about things. Sometimes I end up thinking way too much and never actually try again until it hits me and I think, “man, I have not done anything and you can really tell.” The other thing that makes me mad is that I am probably the last one to notice. Enter me just being pissed at myself.

So here I am, once again, starting over. I can honestly say that I have not, not done anything. I have gone for walks, I have joined the kickball team, and I have taken a run here and there. The problem is I have not been consistent with anything.  I hate not being consistent more than anything, but it is so hard to be consistent.

I get tired of all the people out there with the “no excuses” bull shit. I mean I am not coming up with excuses, it is legitimately hard. I am not trying to run during the day when I have two kids with me. They don’t want to be confined to a stroller, and honestly one is heavier than I would care to push in a stroller. I know there are other things that I could do, but I want to run.

I hate running with my kids. Yes, that is what I said. One gets twenty steps in and wants to walk. The other starts crying and whining about half a mile in. I can’t just leave them on the road we run on. I don’t feel that is my best parenting move.

I like it when my husband runs with me, but everything is on his terms. I have to be ready right when he gets home, and we never really know when he is coming home, so there is no real way to plan for it. Also if I am not 100% ready he is in a bad mood then, which translates to me being a bad mood because my crystal ball wasn’t working that day to realize I needed to start 20 minutes earlier than I did. I mean really?

I would love to run in the mornings before he goes to work. That is where I have found most of my success in morning running.  It is extremely dark here in the morning ( or at least is seems) to run before he goes. Plus if I go run, who does his breakfast and coffee? He might argue I don’t do it every single day, so it shouldn’t matter, but I do like to do it. I would love to get the girls up and run while they are getting ready, but I fear they don’t actually get ready, and if something were to happen and they are at the house alone….Ugh…I hate this. Can someone buy me a treadmill? That would solve this all.

Not really.

I have a horrible mind set that is easily defeated, and I am working on battling my way back – “excuses” and all, because I am sorry. Everyone that is spewing the “no excuses” bull shit, give them also. We are all human.

Tips to Help Kids be Fit


I know how hard it is now days to get kids out of the house and away from the video games.   You see stories all over and parents talking about how their kids are glued to their games/computer/hand held devices.  I know my son was.  And, it frustrated me to no end!

But, just because your kids love their gaming is no reason for them to become over weight and live an unhealthy life.  Here are some great ways to help them.

1) Check out the playgrounds at your local parks or schools and make a fun play day on the jungle gym.

2) Take the family hiking, bicycling or swimming.

3) Join up with friends, family, neighbors and do fun games like softball, kickball or tag.

4) Make a point of after dinner going for a walk.  It is good family time to talk about the day.

5) Get the kids involved in cleaning the house or helping in the yard.  Doing things like vacuuming, raking, washing the car, mopping floors.

6) Get a dancing or exercise game for the Wii, Xbox, or Playstation and gather the whole family for fitness night.

Raising Kids Who Love Exercise

Raising Kids Who Love Exercise

Lifelong, healthy habits that will help your child succeed


Childhood obesity is a big talking point on the news nowadays—everyone from bloggers to CNN commentators to the First Lady are waking up the country to the need for healthy, happy kids. While your children’s nutrition is something over which you have a fair amount of control (at least early on), encouraging exercise is a little trickier. Here are a few tips to instill a love of fresh air and exercise in your children.

Take your cues from your kids

Until I was in college, I always thought I hated sports, hated exercise, hated competition; but the truth is, I just hated the options my parents tried to sell me on. It turns out, I love swimming, hiking, and running—and I’d love them more if I had learned good technique early on. You don’t even need to be a parent to know that kids instinctively love to move—they just don’t like being told that it’s a chore or an obligation.

Watch how your kids like to move—do they run laps around the couch? Do they naturally move when there’s music on? Do they roughhouse and wrestle? These are incredibly common behaviors that can easily be channeled into a love of intense exercise.

Get involved

And no, this doesn’t mean screaming at the ref at Little League games. Rather than just driving your kids to a class or a practice, jump in with them. If they like football, have a family pickup game in the yard. If you catch them dancing, crank up the bass and join in. Again, this is a good habit to inculcate before your teenagers are too cool to hang out with you, but if you approach it with a good sense of humor, it can work with all ages.

Model a healthy attitude

Many teenagers are turned off to exercise because of unhealthy messages they get from people around them—some view fitness as “superficial” and unimportant, while others’ fitness goals are motivated by unrealistic media portrayals and feelings of inadequacy. Especially for girls, pushing fitness for unhealthy reasons can be as dangerous as it is ineffective. Talk with your kids about your healthy lifestyle goals in an affirmative way, but never vent negative feelings about your body around your kids. You’re their model for “normal”, and if they learn from you that “normal” isn’t good enough, you’re setting them up for a rough time.

Ration electronics seriously

A big part of encouraging a natural, enjoyable relationship with exercise is just making space for it in your kids’ lives, and that means rationing out the gadgets. One great way to make this happen is to post a sign by the computer: “Want today’s wireless password?” with a list of chores or activities they need to do before they can sign in. It’s also a good idea to install extensions that add up your browsing time for the day, and block their favorite sites when their allotted time is up. In my house, there are no laptops in the bedrooms, and less than one hour on the family computer per person. Exceptions for special occasions are okay, but having rules makes a huge difference.

Low-intensity activity is okay

Exercise with your kid should never feel like a death march. Inculcating fitness in kids is about creating positive attitudes toward exercise, not prepping your 9-year-old for a marathon. Sometimes, a walk outside, a pickup game of Frisbee, or a couple unstructured hours at the pool is all you need. If your kid learns that being outside is fun, they’ll pick up the discipline and structure that they need from peers, coaches, and their own personal goals.
