#TBT October Edition

The great thing about blogging is being able to look back and see what I was doing last year and the years before, it's fun to see how my life has changed. 

Bless - look how small Madison was, ahhhhhh! This is Oct 2010  and I had just hit my prepregnancy weight of 185, I was 17 months postpartum. Thankfully I don't foresee it taking quite as long this go round thanks to an increase of knowledge on my part. 

This was  Oct 2011 and I was at 106 pound weight loss, I was going to school full time and staying home with Madison the rest.

Dang I'm sure glad that the camera on my phone has improved - October 2012 and the first time I got into a size 6 jeans thanks to an increase in the amount of weights I was lifting. These are still my favorite jeans and I can't wait to fit back into them again!

That time I flew to Fort Wayne IN and ran a half marathon while 16 weeks pregnant. It was such a fun weekend, the girls surprised me with a baby shower, I got to meet some of the amazing people I've chatted with online, and just all around has a blast. I really hope to get to do it again next year - the race {Fort to Fitness} was one of the best races I've done and I'm not just saying that because they had a potty every mile or so :)

Oct 2014 - almost 7 months postpartum, 13 pounds away from prepregnancy weight, and training for my first marathon. I can't wait to see what is in store for me the next year!

I'm glad I've had so many changes over the years - everyday I strive to be better and I never want to look back and wish 'what if'.



  1. Just came across your blog and love it! You've inspired me to get into lifting weights after marathon training, which makes me want to eat EVERYTHING in sight. Time to tone up. Your photos above give me motivation. :)

  8. I agree with everyone else! You are always so real and so you and we love it! You after inner of the most ambitious people and go after your goals. It's taken me longer to lose the weight this time and I'm always looking at you and admiring how persistent you've been. I feel like i look like your very first pic but slightly bigger. Long ways to go!! And by the way i never knew you when you were at your fittest and oh my gosh girl! Dang!
