If you follow me on FB or on Instagram you probably know that I am my daughters cheer coach. We have been immersed in Cheer since late July, and are about halfway through our football cheering season.

I was never a cheerleader, but was a basketball player instead but my kiddo insisted that I coach this year. So here I am with a great co-coach and a the best 3rd-5th graders. I never thought that I would say it, but I love our squad. They are a great group of girls!  We also have a great group of parents. You know there is always that one, but we don't have it. Hopefully, I didn't jinx myself now. :)



We also, have a photographer on our team. Which makes for beautiful team photos while our girls cheer and of my little crazy also.

Today, I am thankful. Who knew that I would say that. I walked in to being a coach for my daughter, but now I really truly want all of our girls to have an amazing time.

Getting back on the wagon

Six days ago I bought a planner. I am sure you are thinking. WOW, that is great. HA!

I decided I am over logging online or signing into apps. I have started tracking everything I eat in the planner. Easy, simple and yet such a struggle. My life as been crazy lately, and this is one thing that is giving me control.

Today, I started cutting sugar and giving up soda. The funny things, is I never thought I drank that much soda. Yet, when I looked back over the past few days I had some every day.  So it is time for a change.  Of course, today my 3 year old is giving me a run for the money on nap time.

More then anything I want to grab like 10 cookies and shove them in my mouth. One day at  time right?

Hopefully, I will start writing about my journey more, as it is time to take a big step in the right direction.
