I am starting my second 10 weeks of fitness tomorrow. I did my weigh-in and other stats today, so I’m off and running (I only lost 0.6 pounds this past week during transition, but lost 0.7% body fat). I’m going to log my progress here (which is also in my main menu) so that no one has to deal with this in their readers – but you can check in if you want. I expect this to be rather boring for most, but I want to put it out there to keep myself accountable.
I’m happy to report that my “wall of motivation” is doing its job. I did not want to run yesterday – I was looking for anything to do but run, but when I walked into my closet and saw my B&A photos and Hottie’s card, I immediately put on my running togs and hit the pavement. A picture is worth a thousand words, right?
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!
