Holy Moly!!!

I am going to be so sore tomorrow if not Thursday.  Just in time for another training session.  DOMS gotta love it.  NOT.

I did a strength workout this morning, say around 630a, then had managed to get to the gym for a 10a training.  Total body workout.  Legs are Jell-O.  Arms I can not lift.  And sneezing?  Oh the abs.

Nutrition was on point today.  I only had 2 small snack sized Hersey Bars.  Go Me.  I can usually eat like about 6 or 8.  So good.  LOVE chocolate.

Just a quick update as I am now heading to bed.  Getting up at 430a is finally catching up with me.  Will catch everyone up tomorrow

And here it is …. 2018

New Year, New Me

Happy New Year.   Happy 2018.

Are we ready for the new year?  Hope so because it is upon us.  For some it creeped up and for some it was a BANG it’s here.  For me it was a fast 2017.  I guess moving from GA to FL had something to do with it.  One month we are moving into a new house and the next we were here for 6 months and now it is 2018.  So yeah it moved pretty quickly for me.

So today is:
Monday, January 1, 2018
First day of the year
First day of the month
First day of the week

New Year
New Goals
New Workouts
New Accomplishments
New Adventures


Going to write everything down.  The good, the bad.  Everything.  Food, accomplishments, workouts, personal gains, bad moods, positivity, negativity, losses, everything.

Today marks my 17th year of being “sober”.  December 31, 2001 was my last drop of alcohol.  I woke up on January 1 stating I was done.  Not drinking anymore.  And I haven’t.  Nothing.  I kind of thought it would be hard to do, like quitting smoking, but it really wasn’t.  The fact I was up to a 12 pack a night was a good indication I thought I had to stop.  So I did.

And why is it when you tell people you have stopped drinking they have the need to ask WHY?  But when you mention the fact that you stopped smoking they’re all like “YAY Good for you!!” hahaha  I have always found that so odd.  So I am 17 years sober and 4 years smoke free 😀

I know I am pretty much all over the place here but lots to say and mind in jumbling.

Workouts.  Did my first one in months today.  I am going to be SO SO sore.  I can already feel it in my thighs and my hamstrings.  I set about 4 or 5 alarms so I can get an early start.  A new start.  Got out of bed at 515a.  I had my coffee and took all my new year stats (weight, measurements, BMI, etc…)  Got my workout in at 6a and now I am free for the day.

Business.  I am going to work on building my business this year.  I already have 3 calls scheduled for this week alone.  I am really excited about this.  My new VentureToFitness.  I have so much to do.  I slacked so badly last year I didn’t make any money really.  I will do it this year!!  I have a lot of people behind me.  I know I can do this I just have to put my mind to it.

I am off to do some personal development and some reading and self reflecting.

Enjoy your day and again, HAPPY NEW YEAR

Post Christmas Hangover


Post Christmas hangover.

Loooong day yesterday. Great day but long.

Great surprises, great presents, great supper.

Child #2 came down from GA and surprised EVE RY ONE. His grandparents, his brother, his uncle and cousin. I was the only one who knew he was coming 😁😁 Sneaky Sneaky Me.

He started his FL visit on the East coast Wednesday and came over here to the West coast yesterday. It was great to have the boys here for Christmas Day. I realized, when I woke yesterday, I didn’t really like waking to an empty house on Christmas. 😭 I mean I’ve done it before but the boys were close by, like minutes away, not hours. I guess this is something I am now going to have to get used to.

Well on to today. Child #2 like Bob Evans restaurants so we will go and have some breakfast 🍳 🥞 then brave the mall to get him his new shoes. Only because the shoes (Vibram Five Fingers) he wants I didn’t want to buy without him trying them on. His size 10.5 foot and the sizes being in Britis.

So off to breakfast we go.


Just a little introduction

Merry Christmas Eve.  

I thought today a good day to start my new blog.  Although I am still learning how to blog I thought I would just start off by introducing myself.  

My name is Victoria and I am a 47 (48 in January) wife, mother of 2, empty nester, and furmom to 2.  I have been married to Jeffrey for 25 years (26 in Feb, yes Valentine’s Day).  My 2 children are boys; David, 25 and Brett 23.  I have a Black Lab mix, Kimbo (8) and a newly rescued (Oct 1) mutt(?) Trebor.  I am not sure of his age but was told he was 5.  

I have decided to start this blog to help me keep accountable in my workouts, my nutrition, my family affairs, my travels, etc.  I feel if I share my health and fitness journey I keep more accountable.  Like I HAVE to as to not let down my followers, and myself.

I will share my family, my thoughts, my travels, my fun, etc.  I like to walk, hike, travel and fish.  I am not one to sit on a beach and relax.  I am more happier with a pole in my hand and a line in the water.  All my family loves to fish.  As for travel I like to go to different states just to see. Or even just different parts of my state, Florida, to look around.  Have a day out. 

I hope you enjoy my blog and bear with me as I grow, slowly, and as I learn.  With the holidays here and lots of family and surprises I will try and share daily, no promises.  But I do need to get in the habit of it.  What is the saying?  It takes 21 days to form a habit.  So please give me at least 30 🙂 hahaha 

Thank you and MERRY CHRISTMA
