2 more days in the books!

14 days in a row!!!And I can tell I am getting in better shape and seeing changes in my clothes even if the scale stays rather steady.

Yesterday I logged 63 mins of workout time–that’s my high for the month

I did biking in the morning and lifting in the afternoon- a leg workout with a mish mosh of items in addition between this-
Squats 45×10, 135x10x2sets, 155×10

Deads 135x4sets

Lunges 45×10– first time on ankle since sprain

Knee Extensions 115x10x3


Today I did 20 mins of bike and 24 mins of a run…I ran pretty hard, on the treadmill again.

Out of curiosity I take my blood sugar after running from time to time.  Today it was a bit higher than usual (214) but it shows the power of our bodies ability to create Glucose with out carbs.  Gluconeogenesis is your body’s ability to make glucose without carbs …my bood sugar 15 mins after a 20 min interval run. The only carb I’ve eaten today is 1 small carrot at noon.

It’s back to normal range at 88 an hour later.

The kids are a track meet but it is raining on an off plus thunderstorms are moving in…not sure if it’s worth making the drive there.


I think we need to do a “Six Weeks to Sexy” contest in honor of my 40th…what do you think? Ya’ll up for starting that in about a week?

Love ya’s,

i sick :(

I fought the good fight FOR DAYS, but last night my body gave in and got the cold that’s been going through our household.

I’m here sitting inside SICK! BUT the sunny side is that Tons of GREAT THINGS are on TV today– the AFC, the NFC and the UFC!  Getting ready to watch them now.

I ran a killer workout yesterday AFTER cleaning the coop and starting a fire….

15 hills– 5 steep, 5 fast low grade–walking down recovery, 5x 30 sec with 30 sec walk/30 jog recovery.  It feels really good to be progressing with my running again. After the lifting I did some upper body lifting.

It went well

Sorry to have not blogged yesterday, it was a busy one.  Had my “Insulin and Thyroid” class/seminar last night at 5:15 so it consumed my entire day!  I have not taught a class on the topic previously so there was a lot of unknowns going in and a lot of prep that I had to do to be ready.  Overall there were about 20 people in the class, the average age of the class was 60…amazing how different the clientele is at a Dr’s office than in a gym, lol!

The speech went smoothly, next time I’ll be sure to integrate a bit more interaction and change some of the emphasis of what we discussed.  I tried to leave the audience with the message “YOU NEED TO CONTROL Blood sugars and your insulin! and YOU NEED TO BE YOUR ADVOCATE FOR YOUR HEALTH!”

Thanks so much for all your support and well wishes for the event, it means the world to me that you cheer me on!!


Here’ is a PDF of the presentation-…9/InsulinThyroid.pdf

The more interesting part of last night was how awesome it was to see the growth of Dr. Tammy’s program “Project Wellness” and getting to meet some of the new people she’s brought on board to help with her business. It’s very inspiring to see all the people she’s helping.

Today’s SUPER MOM is Susan Soares….She’s overcome a ton in the past 7 years since I’ve known her. She is now a fiction writer, check out her books on Amazon or on her site

Day 1/7 in the books!

I got day 1/7 of my “liquid diet fast” in the books.  It wasn’t horribly hard and i actually don’t feel too bad today…YET…Last night was the toughest spot.  I get hungry in the evenings


My energy and mood yesterday were amazing.  I was excited to feel “HAPPY” all day and positive.  Hope that trend will continue.

I did end up “drinking” quite a bit of calories yesterday:

2 small cans of v8 coffee with half and half 2 cups

beef broth mixed with a tomato/pepper liquid soup

needless to say I was retaining a bit of water last night, lol!

My weight both yesterday and today in the morning was 131.

Yesterday my sister had her baby!! Eliana Liv Erickson! She was born at 12:02 and weighs 7 lb 15 ozs. Please keep her in your prayers as she has spina bifida and will be having surgery with in the next day or 2.

Today we have the kids home from school.  A big winter storm is expected to start at around 11am…we’ll see if it actually happens?? It is cold outside~ only 26 at the moment.  I think we’ll take the free time to put up our Christmas tree!!

The plan for today is to enjoy some more fluids Clean it up even more as the 7 days goes along. I really need to eliminate the dairy part of what I’m consuming.  I don’t have any workout plans yet, but I may need to do something soon~ my body needs to stay busy.


As for the Spirit side of the fast– Haven’t really started that much yet.  I was very busy yesterday running errands and shopping. Now today the whole family is home, so It’s hard to find a “quite” place.  I’m sure I’ll press in soon though~ I’ll need my GOD as I get more and more hunger!


I’ve got a bunch of work to do, so I’ll see ya after I get a bit of it DONE!

Here’s the info for submission once again-


ON my personal front…I’m still dealing with some “sickies”.  My son is home sick from school today and I’ve been still a bit bogged down with feeling a little sick myself??  I didn’t take my pics yesterday as I had wanted– I’ll get them and my measurements done tomorrow instead.

I rested yesterday except for a couple hour hike through the woods with Travis– it was AWESOME!  It’s the first time we’ve been able to go for a hike in the woods since last year– He tore his meniscus last fall and finally got surgery on it this August.  It’s so nice to have him healthy again!!

This afternoon once the girls get home I’ll hit the tennis courts with them for a bit and then we’ll carve pumpkins tonight!  They are so fired up for Halloween– but all of them are SCARED Sill, I found all 3 of my girls in bed together this morning, lol!!  I told them yesterday at the store we’ll focus on decorating for CHRISTMAS instead of halloween.

My run today went well–

Good– ran 9 or 10 hills, I can’t count so I’m not sure– stopped to tie shoe and to rest a bit after 5 hills for a total if 3 non-running min. The hills don’t measure correctly with GPS so total distance was longer than the “runkeeper” thought– but here’s what it said:
And here’s my accuntablility picture for today “Trail hills happening now!! JUST DO IT!! “:
