Good morning! I am very proud and excited to say I followed through with my 3 month exercise goal! I can’t tell you how much this has changed how I think and feel, and it’s only the beginning.
My goal was to exercise 6 days a week. I run a mile and then do 40mins of weights. I stuck strong to that however had 2 days I just had to take off. I had to listen to my body and mind and know missing 1 day here and there won’t break my stride, I’ll just come back stronger.
One hard part is dealing with pre-menopause. Waking up every hour from night sweats and working out is no fun. Randomly getting periods and bloating/cramping and working out is no fun. One of the days I took off was due to this but I came back the next morning with extra energy to get a good workout in.
I have lost 7lbs and 3” off my waist. Another goal of mine was to be able to do 1 pull up. Just this week I was able to do one and hold for 5 seconds. I was ever so geekishly proud of myself!
I’m now going to make workout plans monthly. Next month is working out 5 days a week. Wednesdays will just be morning yoga now. 6 days a week got to be a little too much the last month for me. Keep upping my weights as needed and instead of running a mile, doing an elliptical machine. I want a sustainable, life long plan.
I’m really excited for next month and really feeling my 50’s are going to be some of my best years!!
Thank you all for reading and encouraging me! I really appreciate it! HUGE shout out to Dwight for being my work out buddy over on his Volly app. It means so much to check in and be accountable for your goals but also check in and know someone will understand needing to take a day off. I appreciate you so much!! 🙌🏻

Thanks so much Lovie! Your comments always keep me going! You are always inspiring us as well, that’s for sure! Have an awesome week!!
Way to go, Jackie! You are very inspiring! 🌟💛
Thanks so much Collette! I forgot to mention I didn’t see results for almost 2 months, then finally things started to show.
That’s encouraging me because I’ve stepped up my exercise and am being careful about what I eat and tracking everything and it’s been almost three weeks and I’m still not seeing results. I guess we have to be patient and persistent at our age! 🤨
It has to be our age I’m thinking! ( So not fair! Lol ) It was discouraging with no results for a couple months but then things just started happening. Glad I mentioned that to ya!
I’m super proud of you!!! Ahhhh, I have to get my shit together. I turn 40 in… 6 weeks… and know it’s only going to get harder from here on out. Have been super busy with new job so didn’t get back into blogging yet. But I drank half the days of June, no good, no good at all =(
Hey you!!! Thanks so much! I miss hearing from ya! I hope you love your new job! You have little as too so I’m sure your busy! This is my busy season and I’m over it already and I still have July and august and half of September left. 🙃 Unfortunately once I turned about 45 my body went dumb. 😆 It needs it freaking mind back! 😂 I’m taking this week as a low week. My endometriosis is acting up this week and lifting weights with that pain sucks. It’s frustrating me but it’s just a week. Great hearing from ya girlie!!!! Xoxoxoxo
You have little as too? 😂 How about you have little’s too I meant. Not little ass! 🤣
Love this, what an awesome goal ♡
Hey you! Thanks so much! 😍
