Welcome to Fitness Friday 2014! 
Danielle from "We Have It All" and I have decided to start Fitness Friday up again for the year. Fitness Friday will be a weekly post where we can all write an update on how our week went concerning diet changes, exercise, weight loss or inches lost, our achievements for the week and our failures. It will also include our goals for the following week. We hope that you will join us on this adventure.

Each Fitness Friday post will include a linky. Everyone is welcome to join, just write a post and add the button above to your post and share anything you are comfortable sharing.

If you are not a blogger, feel free share your progress in the comment section below the post and we will still show you the same love and encouragement by replying to your comment.  

Fresh Start!
Since I just had Angel a month ago there is no better time then now to start working on getting my body back in shape. Since I am breastfeeding Angel I can not take any diet supplements which in a sense I think is a great thing, because it makes me have to work a little harder on what I do and how I eat. I know that Jake has also asked me to help him get back into shape and to be his accountability partner. I think one great way to succeed with trying to lose weight or getting into shape is by having a accountability partner to keep you on track. 

This Week!
Activity: I have not started to do to much just yet other then walking. The kids were on a extended Christmas break due to the frigid weather we had here this week. It is hard to find time to exercise without them wanting to be on the equipment as well and I am to afraid of them getting hurt.  
Diet: I have been trying to cut the soda down and to drink more water and juice. I have also been trying to once again find more ways to take our normal meals and turn them healthy. With the cold weather we've been having I have been making a lot of soups. I recently took my Potato Soup and made it into a healthier version that does not have any heavy cream or milk.

Next Week's Goals:
Activity: I plan on getting back to actual exercise other then just walking. I would like to use the elliptical and bike for an hour each night.
Diet: I would like to keep cutting back on the soda and to keep upping the water and juice. I also am hoping to have a new healthy recipe for you next week.
Weight: I am not really doing this to lose weight but instead to tone and eat healthier.

Join Us!


  1. Your potato soup sounds yummy! I am looking forward to other healthy recipes that you come up with.

  2. Congratulations on the little one! I'm a huge fan of soups, especially if they're healthy. Seems like the right time of year to eat them too. Simply walking and making healthy diet changes is how I lost most of my baby weight. Looking forward to seeing your progress!

  3. I'm in the same position as you are... still breastfeeding. It kinda makes it hard to do this, in a way. I want to do a detox or even take some extra supplements but can't. I'm with ya on the pop vs. water. We can do it. (once these headaches go away lol)
