Good Evening

And it shall begin ….

As you can see this is my very first blog post.  YIKES!!

So a little bit about me 🙂

I am happily married to the most wonderful man, Jeffrey.  I have 2 grown boys, David and Brett.  I have a lab mix named Kimbo.  I am a homemaker.  I love: fishing, boating, travel, hiking, walks, working out.  I like to take pictures with my iPhone.  I am getting a little better.  Nothing to write home about.

I met my husband where we worked.  I was going to tech school to become a medical assistant and also worked in the office he did.  He is an insurance adjuster and I was clerical.  We had gone out one night with a mutual friend, 26 years ago, and that’s all she wrote.  We have been together ever since.  We married in 1992, Child #1 was born in 1992 and Child #2 was born in 1994.

We were living in Florida at the time.  He then got a transfer to Georgia.  We relocated to Georgia in 1998.  Husband got another transfer in 2017 and we relocated BACK to Florida.  The boys have been out on their own.  Child #1 for quite some time and Child #2 for about 2.5 years.  They are doing well and flourishing into great men.

I am going to really try this.  To post on a daily basis.  Tell you what I am doing, what I have done, what I am going to do.  My travels.  My adventures.

I am traveling all this week so this will be my test 🙂  To post photos and updates during my trip.

I hope you enjoy my new blog.  Please feel free to contact me about any post or anything.

A new month

leads to new adventures.

We have decided to bring another member into the family.   His name is Trevor.  He is 5 years old.  He loves to play and is very sweet.  He gets along with all of us including Kimbo.  Kimbo even initiated play with Trevor 🙂

It may be a long road to break Trevor of a licking habit but he will love it here and will be spoiled just as much as Kimbo.  Good food, good treats, comfy beds and all the other amenities you could as for.

So here’s to adopting instead of shopping.

Please welcome Trevor to the Johnson clan 🙂🙂

July 1 Day 1 31 days of straight fitness

July 1

Day 1

31 days of straight fitness and good nutrition.

January through June have slipped through my fingers. With the move and the emotions and lack of energy and the lack of willingness to get back into it has really taken a toll.

Something in my head clicked yesterday. I have no idea what but I was out to lunch with a friend and we chatted about coaching, programs, how to do it, what to do, our goals etcetera and something she said just clicked.

I can’t even remember what she said. Maybe it was just our conversation and the excitement of it all. I guess just talking out loud has brought everything in to perspective.

Have you even realized what you needed after just talking to someone and not even realizing it had struck a nerve? http://ow.ly/i/wmeAb

Lazy Lazy Lazy

Lazy days.

Everyone needs them.

I have had 2.

It’s been great.  Hubs has been out of town.  Mom went home.  Two lazy days.  Did nothing but binge …. on Amazon Prime.  I re-watching Suits  ( IMDb Suits )  with Gabriel Macht and Patrick J Adams.  I LOVED this show but then stopped watching TV altogether.

Today would have been a workout day.  I logged online to see what workout it was and realized it is a rest day.  Oops.  I’ve already had 2 of those so I will do some cardio.  I am on week 3 of Body Beast. ( Body Beast) I am thinking of throwing some ShaunT into the mix.  *He scares me*  I don’t normally start programs on a Thursday but I think I will just pick on and do that one then START the program Monday.  90 Days.  eek  I am going to start Focus T25 ( Focus T25  )  ShaunT does like to jump.  I will have to modify because of my knees.

Well I am off to do some cardio before the surround sound guys show up .

Getting up at 4a

is starting to take a toll.  I am getting tired around 2p.  I literally try and keep my eyes open but does not work.  I crash on the couch for at least an hour.

I get up at 4a to workout around 430 – 5a.  I love doing it in the morning when it is nice a quiet.  No one to talk.  No television.  No noise.  Just me and my workout.  My focus

It also gets me going for the day.  I feel so awake, motivated.  If I am out and about I get a lot done.  I can get a lot done in the office.  I can run my errands.  I can read my Personal Development.  (Eat That Frog by Brian Tracy).  I am done with everything by at least 330p and have the rest of the day for me.

Swim.  Play with the dog.  Work outside.  Just sit on the lanai an relax.  It’s a wonderful thing.  This week Mom is here so it’s even better.  More time withMom.  Yes, Yes, Yes, we just spent a week in MN but I have just recently moved and she hasn’t seen the new house yet.

We relocated from GA to FL.  I am now only about 3.5 hours from her …. and my oldest son (youngest still in GA) & my brother and his family.  Hubs’ family lives here too.  We are now taking bets as to when Child #2 will move to FL 🙂

Well off to do my workout.  Love spending quality time with Sagi.  Cardio and Abs today.  Thank goodness for Energize 🙂

See told you ….

I do really well then I stop.  

It takes 21 days to form a habit.  

How many days did I get to?  Not a whole hellava lot, that’s for damn sure.  

I haven’t even been busy. Well yesterday I was but seriously.  I’ll sit here and say to myself “Oh I haven’t posted yet.  I gotta do that”. Then 5 minutes becomes 15 and 15 becomes 45 and 45 becomes 2 hours and so on.  

I do this all the time.  When I say I’m gotta do something I should just drop everything and do it.  Or obviously it won’t get done.  Or maybe I should schedule my posts.  At least that way they will get posted. I mean I will be bwriting them just not right there in the moment.  

Now I know a lot, if not most of you, do this for business. How did you get in the habit of posting and how often do you post?  I’d like to hear from you


I hope I get to hear from some of you. Have a wonderful weekend 🙂 

Late morning

Good morning lovelies.  😀

Well I am running a tad late this morning.  My alarms didn’t go on.  Good thing I woke up at 440a.  I normally get up at 4a – 410a.  I’m not sure why not.  It’s not like I slept through them,  I checked after I had gotten up and they were still checked to go on.  (I use an Apple watch)  Guess I have to use my Fitbit as backup. -__-  This is not the first time this has happened either.

Anyway.  I am not nearly as sore as I thought I would be but it may get worse as the day goes on.  If I keep moving maybe it won’t get that bad.  DOMS sucks.  (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness)  Vinegar, Protein, amino acid, phytonutrients … one would think I wouldn’t be as sore.  I must be doing something right 🙂

I am now siting here waiting to do back & bi’s.  The workout is about an hour.  I better get to it.  Good thing I can do this at home.  I also started going to the gym again.

I have work training to do this morning as well.  Training videos, notes, learning, etc ….

I better get motivated or nothing with get done.  I hope everyone has a wonderful day
