Hi Fit Moms!
I am finally back! As some of you know I took a two week vacation from the site to get some things taken care of. I had an unbelievable schedule. My pro beach volleyball season is now over so that’s one big thing off of my plate. I was traveling back and forth from the west coast to east coast weekend after weekend, spending only a few days at home with the family so I had to release something before I had a nervous breakdown.
Two weeks ago I was given the opportunity to speak at our church’s young adult ministry about marriage with my husband! The title of the talk was Covenant Keepers. This was a great experience, we had a blast doing it together. If you are single or married we tell some of the good, bad, and ugly times in our lives, and we share some biblical marriage tips. So, check it out! Let me know if you do. Click here for the link for the video. If you want the audio version that you can download for free of course click here. This weekend I was asked to speak at our church’s first young women’s conference for 18-30 year olds, called Arise. I was not the main speaker, but a breakout workshop speaker. I taught “How to Study the Bible” three times. It was a blessing to me to be able to share what I’ve learned over the years with these eager to learn ladies. I remember when I was in their shoes not knowing Genesis from Revelations. I still appreciate the help of older women pouring their lives into mine, it is so important, so needed.
Last week I took the entire week off from doing any physical exercise. I was “detoxing” from my season. I just wanted to do absolutely nothing physically. This week I’m going to get on track and start working out again in my “home gym” which consists of an elliptical machine, weights, strength bands, yoga mats, a machine that vibrates you while you do exercises (I forget the name), trx bands, and videos (like P90-x and yoga videos). This year I’m adding something new, kettle bells!!! I’m so excited about the kettle bells. I only have a couple but I’m hoping to get some more soon. Any sponsors or reps out there who want me to try theirs, please contact me.
What’s On Our Menu?
This week is shop from my pantry, freezer and fridge week. My goal is to spend less than $30 on items to complete these meals, including breakfast & lunch items. I’m making my own bread this week so I won’t need to buy any, and I already have all the supplies to make it. I plan on having smoothies and sandwiches this week for lunch. Breakfast will rotate between cereal, oatmeal, egg scrambled with veggies inside & toast, and pancakes with turkey bacon one day for a treat.
