No Excuses

Between the Y, running, and the new kickboxing bag in our garage… Well… I have no excuses when it comes to working out.


I broke the bag in today with a 32 minute routine that I then started over for another 14 minutes. I bought an awesome interval timer that I programmed the other night for this particular routine, so I just hit the start button and worked down my list of exercises. It was like being at the KB studio. It was awesome!

I took Bryson for a nice run on Wednesday in the neighborhood and got 3.4 miles in. We don’t live in a big neighborhood and I can get 2.3 miles in without repeating anything, but then add an extra mile with the straight-away section of road (down and back). Again, no excuses.


I feel fortunate to have so many fitness options and the gear to support them. Hottie’s work pays for our Y membership, so we’re able to justify things like the bag and various shoes (even Hottie agrees he needs different shoes for a specific class). We’re fortunate to get some decent inclines and mileage out of our little neighborhood. And I recognize that I’m lucky to have the time to devote to my fitness and health. Between early AM (6:00!) runs with Bryson, child watch at the Y so I can attend classes, and an hour of double nap (kickboxing) time in the afternoons – I can make time to do this. And I have no excuses.

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!
