Motivation of the Day….March 6th

It’s been awhile since I’ve gotten out so today we took the girls on a family hike.  It was an interesting time.  We took this trail that ended up having some snow, ice, & mud.  The girls and I kept slipping everywhere.  As we were heading down I slipped and fell on my butt in this pile of mud with puddles in it.   Even though I was freezing cold, my pants sticking to me, & my butt went numb, it was a fun time.  I was so happy to be able to get out and enjoy our almost 40 degree weather, which is the beginning of a great week.  And I was able to get my 10,000 steps in today.  YAY!

Motivation of the Day….March 3rd

This past week has been a blur of dealing with my stomach problems that was plaguing me. But it’s been 2 days of feeling like myself again, so this bout seems to be over.  The whole time I was sick, I thought about my blog.  It seems so silly but truly love it & love chatting my readers.  It’s always on my mine because I always have something I want to share with others.  So I guess that would make me Silly Sarah.
Since I had time to relax & recover, I’ve made sure to capture images that inspire or motivate me, to share with you all. I’ve also done a little reading, some things I’ve read, really got to me. I’ll share more on that in another post.
Lastly, 2 days ago I restarted my photography season, in which I will be doing action sports, sport groups, dances & proms, & spring school portraits.  In between I’ll still be doing my freelance photography. My illness can’t completely slow me down. Here is how our last week looked it.

Inspiration of the Day….February 17th

This week I’ve been battling stomach problems, which gave me little to no motivation.  It’s been so bothersome I had to go to the drs to see if my illness is coming back.  It’s scary when I have my flair ups because I always worry that my liver isn’t working & I’m going to have to go through every painful thing I’ve done before.   Living with a chronic illness is such a hard thing for any of us to deal with.  It really effects us physically & mentally.  Some weeks, months, & years are easier than others.  This was been a trying, that’s for sure.
During these times, my kids are the ones that inspire me. They are the most understanding kids I could have asked for.  They step up & help out more when I’m like this without asking or complaining.  Like tonight, even though I’m feeling better than I have been, my 13 y.o. did the dishes for me, my 15 y.o. daughter made dinner, & my oldest cleaned up the living room to make way for our new couch tomorrow.   Because of this, I’m in good spirits, I’m able to rest up, & tomorrow I know will be a better day for me.

Motivation of the Day….February 12th

Last week I went as a guest with a friend of mine to this new gym.  It was a lot of fun & I really enjoyed the gym.  What I love about this gym is: that they have a woman’s only room, the pricing (it’s only $20/month with no contract),  i can bring my kids, it’s open 24hrs, & it’s only 13 mins from my home.
So today, I decided to join the gym.  And I’m super excited about it.  This will def help during the super cold days when I can’t go walking.  This weekend it’s supposed to be cold with the high of 7.  So I’ll walk the treadmill at the gym.

Motivation of the Day….Febuary 10th

There are some days that I just can’t get motivated.  Today started out that way but thankfully my hubby had the day off and got me to get up & out.  It was lightly snowing all day, with the sun shining at times, making it a great day for a stroll in the woods.  We took Rosco, who has super excited to a trail that we ended up walking about 2 miles on. It was so fun seeing the two of them running & playing while I walked a steady pace.  Fun times.
