Happy Valentine's Day! Guess who is coming home tonight? My Valentine! Yup, it's been a full 8 weeks since he's been home, but Josh's plane lands tonight and he will be home for a full week.

I've been in "go mode" since he left on December 26th, barely slowing down enough to count the days. But...

Night King 1, Christy 0

 

 

I received lots of nice notes and encouraging messages about sleep. Thank you.   

Yesterday Amazon delivered a cute little stuffed owl that plays lullabies and projects star lights. We tried the new bedtime routine to no avail. I took Georgia in my...

Brain Fog

 

I think I have brain fog.   

More than one time recently I've been unable to recall someone's name that I know.   I stare at their picture and their name just isn't there. 

I'm guessing it is sleep deprivation.  We are still struggling to build a sleep...

Listen Mama...

 

Did you know I co-host a podcast? It's called "Listen Mama."

I just spent the last 30 minutes editing our most recent episode in Garage Band. We record virtually so it takes a little work to put the pieces of the recording together and mash it with the intro and...

Lonely...and other words

 

Friday's are my lonely nights.   I'll be honest, during the week I don't slow down long enough to be lonely.   Over the weekend, the kids keep me busy and I tend to find "tasks" that give me a mental break from coaching...I generally don't feel that...

One more step...

 

20 months down, 4 to go.  

If you are new to the Fit Me Journal, let me explain.  We are a military family, I am a Navy veteran and my husband is active duty.   In May of 2018, Josh reported to his new sea duty assignment and we have lived apart 95% of the...

That's what she said...

 

My dogs are playing at my feet...and by playing I mean doing the doggy swirl of teeth and fake growling as they both lay on the floor.
If you have dogs, you know this sound.

Henry is sitting next to me on my office couch holding Georgia and just asked Alexa...

Snow Dayzz

 

Fit Me Journal January 14

It snowed...again.   Schools are closed and the boys will be home to fight and wrestle like Tasmanian devils while I juggle a full coaching day.   In fact, they've already started begging to invite extra Tasmanian devil friends over.  If...

Final chance...

 

Today is it. The last day to sign up for this round of Fit Me Coaching. When signups close, for the first time ever, I will close entry into Fit Me.  I know it will re-open at some point, but 1000% honestly, I'm not sure exactly when.   

I've...

Do you hear the people sing?

 

2 days left.

That means today I am supposed to apply some super fancy sales leverage to spur you into action.

Good thing I don't like sales and am not very good at it.

I don't want to trick you or manipulate you into joining this movement. I want you to see...

Re: Your Text

 

I just got the best text. To tell you the truth, I needed it. Launch week can be pretty emotionally draining for me, and #momlife has been tough this week. I've been working around the clock and the kids and dogs are determined to destroy my house and my sanity.

This text was...

Tell me why

 

Since all this week I'm talking about the Fit Me Coaching program, I thought it might be nice to let some other people do the talking.   

I've asked a few people who've joined so far, why?  Why this... why now?

Here are a few of the responses.
