Baseball is in the Air

This is my favorite time of year!  Baseball is definately coming fast.  As many of you know this is something I hold very close to my heart!  Baseball has been a big of my family for the last 19 years and so many wonderful memories, stressful games an amazing outcomes.  The journey continues and becomes more and more of a reality everyday.  I am attaching the most recent article on my son who is now with the Oakland A’s.  We are so very lucky to have been part of his dream, sweat and tears for all these years.  As I have said many times in the past..he has shown me so many times that if you have a dream and continue to follow your heart…stay true to yourself and work hard..dreams really do come true!  Life has a funny way of rewarding those who follow their dreams … work hard…and love their life!

Vegetarian Meals?

I have been doing a lot of reading regarding weight loss, body cleanses and just plan eating healthier.  I definitely am not an expert but am trying to educate myself the best that I can to live a long and healthy…fun filled life!

It gets harder and harder as you read so many different articles,  and aren’t sure which to believe.  I have been trying hard to incorporate at least two vegetarian dinners a week into my schedule.  Sometimes it’s easy..other times it gets tough because many of the recipes don’t look all that appetizing!  Getting enough protein can be challenging if you haven’t totally adapted the vegetarian way of life.

I will continue to work vegetarian meals into my diet and look for more guidance from sources I can trust!

Are more vegetarian meals a better way of life???  The search goes on!

To a healthy, fun life!

Start to 2017

Well, it has been quite some time since I have updated my blog, so here I am going to try and do a better job of keeping this updated!

2017 started off with our family trip in Europe!  We spent 15 days traveling around  Paris, Prague,  Rome and Florence.  This had to the most amazing trip.  Not only did we see so many historic and beautiful sites, but the time with us all together was priceless.  Family time is so limited due to everyone’s schedules.  We laughed like there was no tomorrow, we ate pizza, pasta, gelato and drank wine together.  We walked miles snd miles each day just talking, laughing and feeling like a family!  The memories we made will never be forgotten.  Well… as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end ……..Leaving Paris on January 8, 2017 was one of the hardest things I have ever done as I left our daughter there to pursue her life long dream to study in France!  These next 6 months will be some of the most amazing and some of the toughest of ,y life!  There is something deep inside that makes you smile through the pain, knowing your children are pursueing their dreams!  This is the start to a year that will hold so many more wonderful and exciting times for all of us!  Happy New Year everyone!

Time to Kick It Into Gear

Well, the new 52 DC starts tomorrow.  I didn’t finish the last one due to illness…my motivation has been lacking but I am working on finding it!  I am surrounded with many friends and family who are starting the year off right and I have to be part of that.

I just completed 50 minutes on the treadmill as a warm up for tomorrow 🙂  I am letting my Pintrest addition not only find me new recipes but also some new workouts.  I completed a Jillian Michaels interval workout which was awesome!  I didn’t feel like I had been on the boring treadmill for that long.  I ended up with over 3 miles and had burned over 500 calories!  I will use this for my CT workouts for a little while until I get tired of it!

The starting line awaits and I am ready!!

Time for some fun!  🙂

ABS Workout

I love searching Pintrest…mostly for new recipes…especially treats for my kids, friends and neighbors!  However, I also have been searching workouts.  I have recently come across an amazing AB workout that is only 10 minutes but has you sweating and your muscles worked to the bone!  It is a tone & tighten workout!  It is one of those workouts that I have a love/hate relationship with!  🙂

I just completed my second day of this and know it is working!  After the first day…my stomach muscles were definately sore!

It’s always fun to find new workouts to get you re-motivated!  Hopefully this one will work for me for a little while!

2014 Season Recap

The Cougars Den

Where do we start with summing up the 2014 season of Cougars baseball?

Whether you’re a fan, coach, player or front office staff member, a season such as the one we just witnessed in 2014 doesn’t happen very often. It might not ever happen. That said, this might be the most fun, yet challenging, blog entry to piece together because simply put, there’s no way to put into words what Cougars fans were treated to this season. But we’ll try. And of course, I’ll look for your feedback as well on what parts of this year’s team were most enjoyable for you. We’ll start chronologically when the team arrived from spring training camp in April and take you through September when the Cougars left eastern Ohio with the Midwest League Championship trophy in hand.


I’ll say this: the announcement of the Cougars’ 2014 Opening Day roster just didn’t have the…

Starting out Sore

Well here we are at the beginning of the Summer 52 DC.  I started a new RT program and am always so surprised at how sore I am after my first workout.  I have been lifting weights and just completed the Bikini Workout which was not an easy workout.  I am now doing the Hard Body Workout….I truly understand why it is important to change your workouts every so often!  The main reason is to be sore…lol!

I like the Women’s Health Big Book of Exercises as it gives me workouts…spelled out, I just have to open and follow!  Once I start and hate to get behind so I stick right with it!

Looking for this soreness to easy a little.  I had a hard time sleeping last night as no matter how I seemed to lay it hurt!  Ok enough whining!  I have lot’s of pushups, pullups and burpee’s ahead!

More fun on the horizon!

New Recipes

There is something to be said about finding a plan that works for you…is easy to follow and you don’t feel deprived. I have tried many things over the years but nothing has been easier for me than the Happy Hormones Slim Belly plan by Jorge Cruise. Easy to follow, great recipes and ideas and I have lost weight and inches following this plan.

I have also become motivated to find “treat” recipes that use almond flour or coconut flour to satisfy my sweet tooth! I have found some amazing recipes and have learned to cook and bake with some different ingredients!

Life is good!

Enjoy your family times!

Sunday Family Day!

I love to sleep in on the weekends, but also know my workouts await.  Getting up I ask my hubby if he wanted to do my RT workout…he joined in and realized my workout is no easy workout…lol!  Then we took my sister to breakfast as it is her bday.  After breakfast we decided we needed to workoff what we ate before our dinner with our parents.  So, my hubby, 16 year old daughter and I set out to hike in a regional park, it was a little warm to head out at this time of day (88 degrees) so we only did 2.2 miles.  But we had fun and we were together as a family! 

I am so blessed that my 16 year old daughter still wants to hang with her parents more than running around with her friends! 

Resting up before a wonderful dinner and of course ice cream and cake at my parents.

Feeling like a perfect day!
