Healthy Lifestyle Journey Day 87: Polo Shirt; Meet The Teacher; Big Man In A Little Desk; Wife Down!

Y’all!!! Courtney is down 26 pounds! That’s AMAZE-BALLS! So proud of her!

Two things happened today. First…it is meet the teacher night At the school where Courtney and I work, and I am wearing the polo they handed out to staff. I have not been able to wear a staff polo in a long, long, long time!
Second, I was helping Courtney in her classroom, and I sat in one of her little desks… The ones with the desk attached to the chair… And I actually fit! I have not been able to fit in those in about 15 years.

Our healthy journey is going great! We are having to adjust to our new schedule… as in back to work schedule. I really, really, really miss summer! But… I am excited to meet this year’s students.

Until next time…have a blessed day!

If you’re looking for a place where you can get inspiration, encouragement, recipes, farmers market tips, and conversation about health and nutrition, we’d love for you to join us.

We are Mitch and Courtney Fairchild, and we’re documenting our journey from unhealthy to healthy. No fad diets, pills, or surgery…just healthy eating and exercise. Just like our high school Health teacher told us! (if only we had listened)

On the road to better physical, mental, and spiritual well-being we’ve learned a lot of lessons (and we’re still learning them). We know that there is no way for us to reach our health goals without the strength, grace, mercy, and love of our Heavenly Father. He is who gives us strength and guidance on our journey.

We’ve also learned that the road to a healthy life is not made to be walked alone. Gotta have God by our side AND…almost as importantly…we’ve learned the importance of having a solid group of people who can encourage us, and that we can encourage as they go on their journey to a better life! The people we’ve met along the way have been a huge driving force for us…and we love to pay that back to others who are in the beginning stages of their own healthy journey.

We’d love to have you join us on our quest for a healthier lifestyle and we’d love to be a part of you nutrition and fitness adventure. You can join our voyage to a healthy lifestyle over on our website:

We hope you’ll join us…encourage us…and let us inspire and support you as well.

~ Mitch & Courtney
