Better than I was
Monday, October 14, 2019      0 comments

I've fallen victim to myself way too often comparing myself to the progress of others. I'd give up way too quickly if I didn't see immediate results. I'm learning to enjoy my slow progress because it it still progress. I'm eating better, I'm try... Read more
Are there really any bad workouts?
Saturday, October 12, 2019      4 comments

There actually is a bad workout, besides the ones you missed. It's the half-assed workouts where you don't give your full effort, you refuse to improve or correct your form and you quit before you're finished. Part of my groups challenge th... Read more
Taking back control
Thursday, October 10, 2019      3 comments

So I decided to take back control of my life. I'm not just getting healthier physically, but by balancing my bank account, updating my budget and setting up a plan to pay off my credit cards. I plan to be both physically and financially healthie... Read more
Commitment to Myself
Friday, September 27, 2019      11 comments

I've read, heard and been told numerous times that in order to be successful at getting healthy, you have to treat working out like any other appointment you would make for business or a doctor. I've come to find it is 100% true. If I do not mak... Read more
No Gym for Me
Wednesday, September 25, 2019      3 comments

I do not have the funds or the time to get to a gym. I do my workouts outside or in my living room. But it doesn't matter where I workout, as long as I continue to put in the work necessary to help me reach my health goals. So remember, if ... Read more
You are Amazing!!
Tuesday, August 06, 2019      3 comments

We tend to look in the mirror and only see the flaws. Those flaws we see, most other people cannot see them. The lines around your eyes from squinting - those are from days spent in the sunshine. Those lines around your mouth - those are from al... Read more
Living in the Moment
Monday, August 05, 2019      3 comments

Living in the present moment, is honestly, one of the hardest things I've had to work at. It's even harder than losing weight. I do like to focus on the f... Read more
Motivational friends

So yesterday I wanted to just take the day off and take a nap before I had to leave my house. My friend Dave refused to allow it. He told me to get my bu... Read more
Intermittent Fasting
Monday, July 22, 2019      3 comments

I started doing Intermittent fasting last Wednesday. I'm working on a 10/14 day where I eat between 10 AM and 8 PM. I have found that the allowed coffee (black) and water is helping me start my morning until breakfast. The starting my meals late... Read more
I am Enough
Sunday, June 23, 2019      4 comments

I sometimes forget what the image says. I let the mirror and slow progress tell me that I am not good enough, I'm fat, I'm slow, that I am not worthy. I let not having a significant other right now tell me that if I were only smaller, I could ha... Read more
Dance
Friday, June 21, 2019      4 comments

So I have started a new thing when I work from home on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays - mini dance parties in my living room. Every hour I take a 2-5 minute break to get up and dance to the songs playing through Pandora on my TV. I'm listening ... Read more
Weird Weather
Thursday, June 20, 2019      4 comments

I love rain to fall asleep, I do not love rain when it keeps me trapped inside or when my sinuses swell and cause migraines. It feels like day 100 of the hostage situation. And we have rain in the forecast for the next 2 weeks as well. Flood war... Read more
Bad Knees
Friday, June 07, 2019      3 comments

No matter how many times I re-start my journey to a healthier me, my motivation always seems to wane after a a few weeks/months. I wish that my knees didn't hurt so much, or I could run and do more physically demanding exercises. But my knees wi... Read more
Migraines
Thursday, June 06, 2019      1 comments

Spent Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday almost locked inside due to a nasty migraine. When they hit, they are brutal and nothing helps to ease them but a cool, dark room and little to no noise. Lucky me, I work on 2 computer screens every day, so le... Read more
Monday
Monday, June 03, 2019      3 comments

I used to loathe Mondays. Only way to get new going was at least 3 cups of coffee and sit blurry eyed for several hours. Now that I think of Mondays as the start to another great week and another day to reach my goals, I look forward to them. Ch... Read more
