Kitchen remodel

One of the biggest projects I have had over the past month, has been my kitchen.


It took such a long time because I first had to strip the paint off, which means each and ever piece


Then I had to prime it twice and paint it twice

And finally, it looks AMAZING!

my family has even stopped by to see it, and they are impressed

Look at how far the kitchen has come!!

I hated those yellow cabinets, thank goodness I took my time and they are gone ๐Ÿ™‚

We also dont have that countertop anymore, but this is the best picture I could find.

Question for you:

Do you have a big project on your TO DO LIST?

A day in the life: kickboxing!

Hi everyone! The past few days have been crazy, fun,ย and busy. but I have to say, MY ENERGY IS RETURNING!!! I have had the week off, and I am determined to get things done around the house and get my workouts in! This is how my days have been lately…..

6:45 Wake up and eat breakfast with Andrew

8:00 Go over to my parents and take care of their animals (they are at the beach!)

My parents dog, riley and Mr bubbles. long lost friends


8:30 Start my 3 ten minute DVDs. I haven’t missed a day and I am feeling SO strong! I also love how they give me energy for the rest of the day!

9:30 Work on kitchen. I have been scrapping, sanding, and will some day start Repainting these darn things.

hot. mess.
hot. mess.

It has been taking HOURS a day! They better look AMAZING!!!

Then there is lunch, pick up Andrew, and homework. And then kickboxing! my cousin and I bought a groupon for a boxing/kickboxing class and it is an amazing class! I am sweating within the first ten minutes, and it is always fun (especially when I picture NOT nice people. they will remain nameless haha)

holy hot mess!
holy hot mess!

yep. so this week I have completed all the DVDs and two kickboxing classes. I feel amazing. I also have been eating really well, and my appetite has gone DOWN. not sure what that is about. Maybe that darn tumor. who knows! haha

So that is what I have been up to lately. I have also been trying to stay off the computer and away from the TV. Only once Andrew goes to bed, unless I need to check something fast. I am trying to check up on blogs, but it has been so nice to step away. My camera lens also broke, so these were taken with my phone, not too bad for a phone from the 90s haha.

I love my blog, so I will definitely keep the updates coming!

Question for you:

Do you find it hard to unplug?
Have you ever tried kickboxing?
