Free Viewing of “Food Matters” + Workouts + Thankfulness

Hey my Wonderful Pumpkin Pies! 🙂

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season this week. This past week for me has been filled with essays, registering for classes for this next semester (which was a little stressful near the end…), shopping for winter clothes (because in Texas we don’t have much of a winter, which is quite the opposite of Idaho), and organizing the things I have to take up with me in 6 weeks. My mom, sister, and I went to Target yesterday morning and I got some sweaters, cardigans, thermal shirts, sweat pants and tops, moccasins with furry insides, and a fleece jacket. Today (this morning) my mom, sister, and I went to the Thrift store where I also got some dresses, adorable skirts, long-sleeve shirts, short-sleeved shirts, and another suitcase to take my stuff with me. When I got home I went through the things I have prepared to take with me and had a little fun mixing and matching different things and putting outfits together. 😉 I still can’t believe I only have 4 weeks left of my online classes this semester and 6 weeks until I’ll be flying up to Idaho. It’s coming so quickly, and it’s almost overwhelming. But I know I can get through it. With the Lord’s help, guidance, and comfort, I can stay calm and focused.

This past week I just finished up Week 7 of ThisFitChick’s workout program. I’ve gotten the hang of the schedule and it’s becoming easier to get my workouts in despite my week being busy. Because I was busy, my workouts were spread out a little bit again. For instance: instead of maybe doing both the weight lifting and HIT on the same day, I might separate them and do them on two separate days. I am still using the Biggest Loser Cardio Max DVD workouts in place of the cardio sessions, as they involve the exact same movements but I don’t have to keep looking at the sheet to know what’s next – Jillian, Bob, and Kim tell me what’s next. One thing I never change is the weight lifting workouts. They are my favorite sessions and I love every minute of them. I’ve really fallen in love with heavy weight lifting. They lead to faster results and stronger muscles – and no, they don’t bulk you up: they make you look tone and look as strong as you feel. 🙂 This next week (this week that I’m doing right now) is almost over, so I’ll get my update on it soon.

Talking about workouts….


Here’s a great leg workout from Tribesports. Tribesports  is like an online game where you can take on challenges and have fun while working out. I love how motivational it is – I am a girl who definitely loves competition, so being able to accept challenges, achieve them, and earn “medals” while getting healthy is a win-win situation for me.

I am super excited for this Thanksgiving Holiday tomorrow! Halloween isn’t my favorite holiday, but with it comes the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons which I DO enjoy. 🙂 I love how this season is dedicated to serving others, remembering our founding fathers, and being thankful for our blessings in our lives.

Another thing I love about this season is all the excuses I get to bake. (I always love an excuse to bake. ;)) This evening I made both a pumpkin and sweet potato pie. I’ll share the recipe I used for making them as soon as I get the pictures taken.

I hope you guys have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!! 😀

What is one thing you are thankful for?

I am thankful for my mom. She has always been there for me and has done so much for me throughout the last 17 years. All of those past years, I never realized the extent of what my mom has done for me, but now that I am approaching the age of adulthood, I’m starting to see that. As I was walking up to the bank this afternoon with her it just hit me. She has given up so much for me; she supports me and always motivates me to be my best self. She wants me to become the best Kathleen I can. She is my best friend. We can laugh together, we can think together and solve problems, and yes – we can be obnoxious together at times ;), but I love every minute I get to spend with my mom. Without her, I don’t know what my life would have been like.

With lots of hugs,

  1. Sounds like you are super busy at the moment, but have found time to bake (yay)! It must feel amazing that in 6 weeks you’ll be somewhere completely new, how exciting 😀

    Can’t wait for the pie recipes and as for what I’m thankful for: it’s finally getting warm here in Melbourne, Australia. I’m loving the sunshine and making all kinds of excuses to be outside lately. Bring on a nice hot summer!
