Tue, 8 Nov 2016 13:51:03 EST Easy Does It! There's NOTHING we cant do that we PUT our minds to!! <em>386</em> <em>381</em> Wed, 30 Sep 2015 14:34:01 EST Crossing the Finish Line Before the Race Has Begun? Slow and steady wins the race. ONE day, ONE step, ONE pound, at a time! <em>306</em> <em>521</em> <em>247</em> Sat, 26 Sep 2015 11:11:39 EST Walking Away the WEIGHT <em>521</em> <em>311</em> <em>364</em> <em>306</em> <em>252</em> <em>247</em> Tue, 22 Sep 2015 12:52:27 EST Update... Has anyone had/have any negative complaints on Saucony Hybrid 3 aerobic sneakers? When I first got them both toes next to big toe, were damaged. But I chalked it up to walking 3 miles in them before I had a chance to break them in. And yes, I bought them half size too big. After that, I had no more problems until after zumba. Now my instep hurts when I walk fast and etc.. I guess I shouldn't blame it ALL on the shoes, Ijs though. I shouldn't have these many problems either, Right? Anyway, jus... Thu, 17 Sep 2015 11:10:39 EST Onward AND Upward... I'm racking up those fitness minutes by walking. <em>311</em> Did zumba yesterday and injured my foot <em>355</em> Tomorrow, I'll go to deep water aerobics and hope it'll help. <em>237</em> Other than that, ALL is well! <em>30</em> <em>386</em> <em>381</em> Tue, 15 Sep 2015 12:12:59 EST PUSHING FORWARD!

So, I attribute this small step to making better nutritional choices. <em>220</em> <em>381</em> <em>252</em> Thu, 10 Sep 2015 10:33:26 EST Slowly BUT Surely, Making Progress I'm trying strategies that worked before by staying actively moving AND posting. I MUST stay mindful that it's not a race of who finishes first. It's a daily decision to do what's necessary to reach A goal, small increments at a time. It is said that, slow and steady wins the race. Well, when I throw that phrase around my brain a bit, I get: If I go too fast, I'll miss something. OR lose myself/whom I'm striving to be, in unrealistic expectations. So, with that been said, I WILL keep it simpl... Wed, 9 Sep 2015 10:30:49 EST Expecting different results? <em>521</em> <em>306</em> <em>220</em> <em>381</em> <em>386</em> OR <em>358</em> WHATEVER Works For YOU!! <em>247</em> Tue, 8 Sep 2015 07:36:39 EST Staying in the moment I recorded this video yesterday morning but decided to wait and share it today.

Then I reviewed it and realized, it was just as it should be. I've never exposed myself in this way to ANYONE. But in reality, people can see rolls and lumps through your clothes just the same. That's why almost ALWAYS, I wear black. Hiding behind a see through curtain? Smh, because that's just preposterous. Now that that's out of the way, I'm going to love on me as best as I can RIGHT NOW in THIS moment. Have a great evening everyone! Any and ALL suppo...
