Sharing recipes, crafts and frugal living, the challenges and triumphs of parenting a neurotypical child and a child on the Autism Spectrum.

The CocktailMom name remains, however with a new focus on healthy and authentic living.


Fitness Update

I previously posted about my new workout and eating healthy regimen. I am happy to report I am still going strong. I've lost 12.3 pounds since March and 5 inches off my waist! I haven't been doing the Jillian Michaels Shred DVD everyday, I've worked it in throughout the week balancing it with weight training, swimming and biking. I've also signed up to do a century bike ride (100 miles) in September. I'm the type of person that commits to working out if I have a goal or event on the calendar. It holds me accountable.
I honestly feel great. I feel stronger. I carry my body differently. My mood has greatly improved and in general I just feel alive.
Very alive.
