10lb. slimdown xtreme challenge


by Courtney on October 14, 2011


Oh, hello fall. Where the heck did you come from? Even though we have technically been in the fall season for the past few weeks, it hasn’t always seemed like it, thanks to some milder-than-normal temperatures. I also know for a fact that there were not this many leaves in our yard yesterday, and this […]


Puffy Eyes

So how did everyone do on their sleep last night? Good? Well, I cannot tell I lie; I did not do very good. I had good intentions though, so that’s got to count for something right? Probably not, but here’s what went down… I had to watch Modern Family. I didn’t want to wait to […]


The First Adjustment

by Courtney on October 11, 2011

Winking smile

This morning, I ended up having to make the first adjustment to the workout challenge. After yesterday’s double lower body workout, I had a feeling I would wake up sore and quite honestly, I kind of saw this comin’. Sure enough, as I woke up and rolled out of bed, my entire gluteal area, for […]


Down To The Wire

by Courtney on October 10, 2011


Good morning and happy Monday/Columbus Day/Thanksgiving Day to my Canadian friends! Looks like there’s lots of happiness to go around today and I like it. Are you one of the lucky ones who gets an extra day off today? I can tell you that hubby is not one of ‘em…boooo. Just catching up from the […]


No Rest Day

by Courtney on October 9, 2011


About mid-way through my afternoon today, I realized that I still had a workout to get done. In the last two weeks of the 10lb. Slimdown Xtreme Challenge, there are actually no rest days, unless you count two days of yoga as rest days. I’m not quite sure how I feel about having no rest […]


Kids and Cell Phones

Somebody is certainly enjoying his Friday morning… I came out from the bedroom this morning after getting ready, only to find Cody channel surfing on the tv and basking in the big stream of sunlight coming through the front window. Okay, I’m only kidding on the channel surfing. Clearly, he did not want to be […]


A Little of Everything

by Courtney on October 4, 2011


Well hello there, friends! Thank you all so much for your well wishes from this morning. I feel like I every time I turn around lately, I’m hitting you guys with a new change in my life. But hey, change is good, right?! Alright, so I never got a chance to fill you all in […]


Secret Workout

by Courtney on October 3, 2011


Okay, since when did it become so darn dark in the morning??? Jay and I were both up this morning at about 6:15 and it stayed practically pitch black until almost 7:00am. We actually spent about 15 seconds wondering whether or not we missed a clock turn back or something, until we turned on the […]


I Had An Audience

by Courtney on October 1, 2011


Happy weekend! Happy October! (<—wow, seriously?!?) How’s everyone doing today? I don’t know about you, but I zonked out on the couch last night before 10:00 even hit. Between just being plain tired and the two beers I had with dinner, I was downright exhausted. Luckily, that meant early to bed = early to rise, […]


I Like It

by Courtney on September 30, 2011


I think that today was probably the first time I’ve worked out past noon in over four months. This reminded me of one major thing…I don’t miss it one bit! Due to my late night last night, I decided to forego my morning workout and pushed it back to when I got home from work. […]
