I have been under an insane amount of stress and quite honestly, not handling it well. I’m sitting here today looking back on the past few weeks wishing I had done things differently. While I cannot change my past, this thought is affecting my... Read more
what do you do after a bad day
Wednesday, June 19, 2019      7 comments

What do you do after a bad day? Yesterday, I binged. I cried. I had an anxiety attack. I had to leave work. Today, I’m prepared to have a great day. I have my snacks packed and lunch prepared. My dinner is already made. I am working to keep ... Read more

My husband and I are flying to Georgia at the end of the month because he has a job interview. I have never been so stressed in my life. I’m anxious all the time. I’m not sleeping well. My stomach has been upset for days. I’m excited at the ... Read more
how easy it is, yet hard to execute
Sunday, June 16, 2019      6 comments

It’s so easy to plan my week; my meals and snack and appointments and time for exercise. It’s all laid out on my cute little calendar. And yet, I find it so hard to execute! I have no problem making it to my dentist appointment, but going to... Read more
say it out loud
Wednesday, June 12, 2019      5 comments

I made another blog entry about this concept before, but I find myself using it often, every day. I have begun to say my excuses out loud to myself. Sounds a little weird, right? But I have found it to be incredibly helpful. I don’t feel l... Read more

Change doesn’t happen overnight. Heck, it doesn’t happen in a week. It takes time, commitment, dedication, and consistency. I have been listening to podcasts, making adjustments to my schedule and working on my mindset. I’ve been meditating be... Read more
here’s the hard truth
Monday, June 10, 2019      6 comments

Jessica, You are the person that you are right now because of the decisions you’ve made in the past. Your current situation is a direct reflection of your past decisions. Let that sink in for a second. No judgement. You cannot change it. R... Read more
so, what’s your excuse
Wednesday, June 05, 2019      2 comments

Oh man....I am so guilty of coming up with excuses...I mean, REASONS why I can’t or shouldn’t do something. Notice I called them reasons instead of excuses? Because my “rational” brain tries to trick me into thinking this way. But, in my case ... Read more

Imagine you at working out. It’s nothing crazy. Maybe just a 15 minute walk. But, it’s something. Maybe, worth a penny. Imagine crushing a workout. A sweaty Zumba class, a 5k, or hitting a PR with weights. Maybe you would say that’s worth a qu... Read more

What makes you feel alive? Is it laughing with friends during happy hour? Is it dancing? Is it a yoga class, after savasana when you feel tired and refreshed at once? Is it a delicious meal that tastes as yummy as it makes your tummy happy? Is... Read more

Tuesday, May 21, 2019      4 comments

Oh this blog has been in my mind but I am struggling for the right words. I’ve typed and deleted almost 4 times. I know weight loss is hard, but WOW it’s much harder than it used to be for me. I used to be able to lose weight so quickly and no... Read more

Monday, May 20, 2019      8 comments

Last week, I made plans with someone who didn’t treat me well and to get out of it I told her I had a cold and couldn’t see her. Two days later, I actually got sick. I sneezed at work on Wednesday and immediately knew I was in for trouble. I... Read more

what makes it a “good day”
Wednesday, May 08, 2019      4 comments

Intentional weight loss is mind over matter. It truly is a battle of the mind, and not the body. You’ve read the inspiring quotes... “the body won’t go where the mind doesn’t” or “with the right frame of mind, you can do anything”. Which hon... Read more
