Happy Spring

Hello everyone, Happy Spring!!!! This past week has been a good one for me and I am excited to share. One of the biggest things that I accomplished this week was exercising every day with my hubby. I was having a hard time finding the motivation to exericse and the discipline to make it happen, and honestly I was full of excuses as to why I didn't. I realized that my pride was getting in the way of asking for his help, I felt that I should be able to get it done on my own. We did Tracy Anderson together this week and holy crap it was so much harder doing it with him because he pointed out that I wasn't doing a lot of the exercises properly. His criticism even though it was constructive was hard to take and I found myself getting pretty defensive. I never thougth that this would be something I would struggle with. I am trying to be less prideful and to recognize that asking for help is not a sign of weakness, and it gives more opportunity for growth. On my March goal poster I have some slim down tips that I cut out of a magazine to help motivate me, one of them is "use the buddy system: friends can be accountability partners for you- use them! Support each others goals"

Sorry it took me so long for this post, I started it on the weekend, but for some reason it took me forever to finish it. Life is good over here, hubby is on Spring break and we have been having much needed fun together. Saturday and Sunday we got some really nice walks in. Sunday was the most beautiful day we have had so far all year and it felt divine to get an iced americano and enjoy a walk. I hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday :) lots of love to everyone :)

12 weeks. Do no quit!
This is something I found on pinterest, talk about motivation :)


  1. Exercise is a weird thing. You either love it or NOT! You are so luck to have someone that is willing to do it with you even if you don't do it perfect.
    You are trying and that is all that matters. Have a great day :-)

  2. It is hard to get criticism from our men. Great job sticking with it! have a great week!

  3. It's good that you recognized that you need to work on not being defensive with constructive criticism. I love love love beautiful days! Enjoy them. :)

  4. I am so glad that you are feeling excited again!!! Men have some innate sense of how to do workouts, he probably learned a lot in his service to our Country:)
    I wish I would have gone outside on our 1 nice day! I really want some sunshine!

  5. I have wanted to try the Tracy Anderson method. Sounds like it's challenging. Stay with it and good luck. Sending hugs from me to you!

  6. I was wondering what Tracy Anderson exercise dvd do you have. I have been wanting to try the method one but read some bad reviews about it. Please let us know what you think.

  7. Good for you Katie!!! It is such a great feeling after you finish a workout....why in the world do we procrastinate & make excuses for something that really does make us feel good inside & out?? Its crazy & I am a repeat offender! lol
    Glad to hear you and the hubs are doing well.
    Hugs to you girl!
