Here’s A Plan and later a 2013 Challenge!

23 Nov


AND by what you really need…. that message is for me. 😀  2012m honestly has not been the wonderful dream to full fitness as I thought it would be.  A couple of life happenings ( darn things!) put me in a funk through part of the year and I did not even come close to my fitness goals.

Enough excuses.  I know when I feel fit and on my game and I do not feel that now.  I know what I need to do and I just need to do it.  I have the tools to make it happen, I just need to find the motivation…. now where did I put that?  Is it in the storage room?  Top shelf of the closet?  NO matter – I will find it.

I did mention the shakes before and I like the product.  The first one I made I mixed with skin milk but I was not happy with the fact that the powder is 90 calories, the milk was 90 calories, I added in the chocolate flavoring and half a banana and brought it up to 230 calories.

I know, I know that is not bad… but I knew I could do better.  Pictures above is the powder with an orange vitamin water ZERO (zero calories etc…) and a handful of raspberries.  I was happy with this 100 calorie drink. 

This morning, I am looking at the pancake recipe using the Vi- Shape.  I will keep you informed. 😀


I will be creating a challenge for 2013 on this site… just need to think about it more. 


A New Beginning.

13 Nov



Welcome back to the very VERY neglected blog, Team Kickin It.  I started this blog back at the beginning of 2012 with great ideas of how it would keep me on track and …

well yeah.

That did not happen.

However, I am here this morning to let you know that I am dusting off this blog (and myself) and starting again.  If you read my post this morning at Book Journey I lay out the truth about my life right now and my desire to get fit and healthy again and I am feeling that I am ready.  😀

I love that there are other book loving friends who also have blogs on fitness tips – food, health, etc, which I think is an awesome mix!  If you have not checked out these blogs check out Reagan’s Get Fit 2.0 (she really has been a rock star and is seeing AMAZING results!  Also check out Amanda’s Reading and Running blog.  She posts yummy yummy recipes and I love her tips on keeping it real. 😀

Ok… so hopefully I will be posting regular updates here… the good the bad… and the “ugh, I can’t believe I ate that!”  Feel free to join me in all of the above. 😀
