I hope everyone has had a great week. I am super grateful for seeing another Friday. This has been a good week so let’s get right into it.
I got into the Broad Street Run! This is the nation’s largest 10 mile race. So I am excited, nervous, and in training. I did my 5K last year, but this is the big league. If anything say a prayer for me. I have a lot of support around me and that is making sure that I keep myself fit and this will continue to push me as I keep my fitness goals for 2018. No falling off the wagon will be allowed. The race will be on Sunday May 6 of this year and that is in about a little over 70 days but who’s counting?
Also I am grateful for my kids getting over the flu. I am super glad and praying that my youngest doesn’t get sick. The older two got sick and that was more than enough for me. And as many knows since I posted an old throw back my littlest turned 4. We are super proud of the big girl she is becoming. We wish her well this year as birthdays in our home are always special and definitely a great time for a reset.
I am still going strong on meal prepping. What I mean by meal prepping is above the meals I prep on Sunday for the family for the week but the healthy meals for me and my husband for our lunches, etc for the week. I do a cook up Sunday and between two crock pots and the oven I am making sure that food and food options is not a problem in the Storr home. I cook at least 3 options that usually gets us through the week and then all of the lunches and snacks for the kids and adults for the week too. So the Produce Junction knows me. I am okay with that. I can buy bulk and really not spend an arm and a leg and we have meals ready to go for the household. It takes dedication to do it but I save a ton of time during the week. As a parent my number one goal is to make sure my kids eat well and that they are in the bed by 8pm nightly. And thankfully we make it happen by spending some time using some of the weekend to make the work week go a little more smoothly.
I have a few other changes that are coming up and I will blog about them as soon as I can. Just a reminder since February is when most people abandon their goals, DON’T! Keep going and you will see that breakthrough you have been waiting for. Intentional goal setting and sometimes resetting are all necessary so go out and reach for whatever you set your eyes on and crush it!
Next month is Women’s History Month. With that in mind we have some amazing women that I have had the great opportunity to interview. I can’t wait for you to read their stories. These are some amazing women that live all over and are the everyday women who are out here failing, picking themselves up and crushing their goals. I know that often times we put so much emphasis on celebrities and forget you may be a woman who is doing phenomenal things or have women in your own circle that are doing phenomenal things. Don’t count them out. Always be okay ladies, with giving props to other women. Another great woman can’t take your shine, it only enhances it trust me.
We kick of Women’s month on Thursday March 1, 2018 and we celebrate ALL month-long. If you still would like to be interviewed, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Our hearts goes out to all of the staff and children who lost their lives during the school shooting that took place last week. I as a mother can’t imagine what those parents were thinking as they heard the news or got the call that their children were in harm’s way. My heart goes out to all of the children who had died over the years due to these senseless killings. It makes no sense to me. I am not one to think I have a concrete solution but I know that we need to have action along with prayer. May all who have lost their lives R.I.P and the families be filled with comfort even when the news dwindles. May comfort come to each home affected!
