I have 5 weeks to get up to running 3 . 1 miles... I'm up to 2 straight. Do you think I can do it? I have to do it. I already signed up. :) I figure I always have the choice to walk some of it. We always have choices. I admire those who have already conquered what I'm trying to do.. It's not easy. It takes persistence, mental training as well as physical training. You have no idea how many times I give myself pep talks during my workouts. I think of all those who are in wheelchairs who would love the opportunity to feel the burn in their legs, I think about how all I have to do is make it to the next telephone poll then the next corner and so on. I'll try again tomorrow with a new route.... then on Sunday I'm going to check out the route for September 27th and see what that entails. Have a great day. Working on staying Forevafit.

If you're looking fo
r an alternative to Koolaid for your kids try
"Splash". It tastes great....and has only Truvia and evaporated cane juice for sweeteners. Just a note that each packet is two servings....tricky... I measured it out and there is a tablespoon in each packet. So 1/2 tablespoon per serving. It's available at Whole Foods.

I’ve been looking for a great blueberry muffin recipe and I think I’ve found it with this one. It’s an easy recipe and they came out moist and sweet.
Part of my childrens memories of christmas are that of the smell of burnt cookies (laugh out loud). My oven at the time was old and the temperature was not always accurate. So I feel I need to make it up to them by delivering the best baked goods and this one definitely delivers!!!


1 3/4 cup white wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup organic sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 egg
1 cup organic yogurt
1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
about 1/2 tablespoon ground flax seed
Optional brown sugar to sprinkle on top
Vegetable spray, for the muffin tins or use foil cup cake holders


Preheat oven to 380 degrees F.
Mix in mixer egg, oil, yogurt. Add baking soda, baking powder, flour and flax seed.
Fold in Blueberries. Spoon into individual muffin tins. Sprinkle with tops with brown sugar.

Bake for about 20-25 min.

Dont stop!!!

Going two days without working out is enough to cause the size of fat cells to increase by 25 percent, according to research at the University of Missouri at Columbia. So try and do something 30 minutes a day!
