hi, i'm tracie.

i have fought for the last 30 years to empower myself to be healthy.
some times i'm better at it than others.

in the fall of 2011 i was in the best physical shape of my life at 45 yrs old. during a run i could feel a sharp pain in my knee. i pushed through it like i had done before. i knew i had been over training but ignored it.

i have fought for the last 30 years to empower myself to be healthy.
some times i'm better at it than others.

in the fall of 2011 i was in the best physical shape of my life at 45 yrs old. during a run i could feel a sharp pain in my knee. i pushed through it like i had done before. i knew i had been over training but ignored it.
the next time i went to run i knew i was done.
during the 'healing' process i fell into a depression and gave up on really training/working out. finding excuses not to do it and just didn't.

i started over eating.
my weight started going up and my clothes were getting tighter and tighter. i ignored that also, for as long as i could.
i was up almost 20 lbs and had very little muscle tone 1 yr later.

11/1/12 i had enough and decided it was time to regroup and start again. it was time to turn off the negative mental loop and get straight with my health.

3/01/12 i hit my weight loss goal of 18lbs and a few more! i feel fantastic! i'm currently teeter tottering between 21-23lbs lost trying to maintain a healthy weight.

i'm happy to be here and hope you say hi!

"The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true....action precedes motivation. You have to "prime the pump" and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals. Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day."

"My will shall shape the future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no one's doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me or I can be lost in the maze. My choice; my responsibility; win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny."

"Making changes in your life is never an easy task. The key, however, is not to get caught up in the distance you have to go to get to where you want to be. Nor should you despair over the amount of control you have over your circumstances. Progress is made in the small, intentional steps, and chances are, you have more power than you think. By focusing on little steps you can take every day, the progress you make will motivate you to continue your journey, and eventually, you can go wherever you want to go. The important thing is simply to begin."
-Stephen Cherniske
