I love the weekends when I don't have to work! Tonight I got to go to hot yoga. Tomorrow morning I am trying out a 'boot camp' class and Sunday is a gym date with my man. I might even take a barre class with a friend Sunday afternoon. I love the... Read more

I have found out the key to a successful day and that is taking the time the day before, or a few days before to get stuff done. Saturdays I plan out the meals for the next week and grocery shop. Sundays are my meal prep days. I spend a fe... Read more

Sometimes I need to remember what I truly want. I don't want to struggle with my weight anymore. I NEVER want to feel like I did when I was sick. Sometimes I don't want to eat healthy and sometimes I don't want to go to the gym. But if I don't e... Read more

I am the type of person who will be there for anyone who needs me. I will cheer you on, pick you up and support you. But what a lot of people don't realize, is that my blog is me, talking to myself. Its a virtual pep talk I type to myself and ca... Read more

So I have made a FUN decision to make 3 changes for 3 weeks. This is usually the time that resolutions fall apart as the first month is almost over. February is almost here and its pointless to keep trying. Its too cold outside to have mot... Read more
try something new
Monday, January 18, 2016      9 comments

Part of my 2016 resolution is to try something new each week. I've noticed I become too comfortable in routine and my "usual" that I rarely would venture into trying something new. But the experiences that I open myself up to by trying new thing... Read more

Lets be honest for one moment. You have a starting weight and a goal weight in mind and the space between those has you overwhelmed. At least, that is where I am at right now. But I know once I find my rhythm, its not as scary. Its almost exciti... Read more

My Pastor gave me a Daily Devotional for the Chronically Ill that I have been reading. One scripture was powerful enough to bring me to tears, and not in a good way. It stated that trials are temporary because Heaven is eternal and even if I am ... Read more

I ate foods that I shouldn't have eaten yesterday and I am seriously suffering the consequences today. I am dealing with fatigue, brain fog and fibromyalgia pain. This stinks after having so many great days in a row! BUT now it reinforces that I... Read more
