All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

It’s Official – 20#


I’m officially down 20 pounds from when I started my 10-week challenge 8.5 weeks ago!

That’s a weigh-in before a work-out, which means it’s GOOD.

I did get off track last week with sailing lessons and two girls-nights-out, but I’m back on track and will finish strong.  My nights out may have ruined my chances at the big win, but I will be happy no matter how this ends up because this is just the beginning.  I’m anxious to start another 10 weeks of intense fitness in 1.5 weeks.  I measure everything in 10 week increments when I’m tracking fitness progress.  It’s just what I do.

B is wanting to start of a fitness class too, so that’s awesome!  He actually asked me this morning if I’m thinking about doing some races and I said, yeah – on September 5th!  He then asked if I was thinking about more than running races… and asked about Adventure Racing again.  He is getting the bug… yay!  We used to love doing that together, so I told him to get back in shape so we can do an AR next spring.  He wants us to go to AR camp together in March.  YES!

AND – I need to give a big shout-out to my friend who I didn’t know was still reading my blog who went to Turb.okic.k class with me today!  I was so excited to have a friend in class – I was getting lonely!  She and I are going to work our butts off this fall together.  Get ready, M!

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  1. Congrats on the 20# loss! That is awesome. I just saw 150.0 on the scale and it made my week, I swear. I feel so much better in my body!

    It is so awesome that B wants to work out and do this stuff with you. I used to do so much: running, cycling, rock climbing, yoga. Staying active was my life. Then I started dating MV, who does NO working out and slowly I just stopped. It was so bad for my mental health. In some ways it’s easier because he can give me the time I need to exercise and I don’t have to accommodate his exercise needs, but I’d much rather we did things together. Or at least were interested in the same stuff. It’s just not a thing for him. I wish it were.

    I hope the AR is a blast.

    • Thanks! And congrats to you on 150! God, I want to get there too! 10 pounds to go…

      Fitness is how B and I met, so I’m really ready for us to get back at it again!
