I admired someone today. And that someone was me. I was working out with my coach and we happened to be in front of a wall-sized mirror. I was astounded actually when I looked at my face and neck and could see how much thinner they l... Read more

Finding your best path

Friday, May 22, 2015      5 comments

Heading towards workout # 5 this week - which will be tonight. The weight will take care of itself as my eating becomes more mindful and centered. I am feeling good right where I am. I have post workout soreness just about every day lately, and ... Read more

Make a Bold Move and Then Another

Tuesday, May 19, 2015      9 comments

Something fantastic is happening. I am gaining control over myself. I am becoming bolder which is not to say I don't have fears, because I do, but I am not letting that stop me. I found myself in a familiar place. Had some success to the t... Read more

Riding the Waves of Emotion

Saturday, May 16, 2015      8 comments

It's been a busy and emotional May for me. I am trying to make exercise (and eating healthy, my coach would add) a routine, so less thought goes into it and it just because a thing I do, and a part of who I am. One of my first trainers used to t... Read more

In Celebration of Myself

Monday, May 04, 2015      13 comments

I used to tell my unbelieving self that I was worth the effort and a lot of times, it did not make a difference. In my core, I did not believe I was a beauty worth caring for - so what did it matter what I did? It took me a long time to believe ... Read more

Standing.... For Yourself

Friday, May 01, 2015      11 comments

There's been many twists and turns in my life lately, and as it turns out, it's been a good thing. It has given me a chance to re-evaluate what I am doing for myself, and how I am approaching getting fit, eating well, de-stressing, and treating ... Read more

All Aboard!

Friday, April 24, 2015      8 comments

This is not the express train. This appears to be the one that takes the scenic route. Occasionally, I find a little shortcut that speeds things along, but most often I am climbing up the hill little by little. I am driving the train, but ... Read more

Repeat After Me

Thursday, April 23, 2015      9 comments

It''s about me. It's about me. It's about me. At the end of the day, all that I can be sure of is that this process is all about me. It is tempting at times to focus on others, and either marvel at their example, or wonder I cannot look as... Read more

That Much Sweeter

Wednesday, April 22, 2015      3 comments

Not in spite of, but because of life's bumps and bruises, the journey to the top, at the pinnacle of where we want to be is so much sweeter than if our route was direct and without scars. I've had many mentors in my life, and some are still pres... Read more

The Key

Tuesday, April 21, 2015      10 comments

The Key to my success, present past and future boils down to one thing - never giving up. I have to pat myself on the back a little here, because I have grown stronger in this area. I am very resilient and no matter what obstacles I face, I ref... Read more

You Have to be Willing

Friday, April 10, 2015      12 comments

Change can be very difficult, not just in breaking our own patterns, but for those around us when we suddenly stop behaving the way we used to in the past. It can be unsettling when a person we thought we knew "like a book" has changed considera... Read more

My strongest muscle

Tuesday, April 07, 2015      11 comments

The most important muscle I am building is not visible. It is my inner strength. Truthfully, it's been tested a bit lately, but I am realizing I am much more "together" than I have been in a long while, and I am improving my inner strength - whi... Read more

Just Keep Showing Up

Wednesday, March 25, 2015      12 comments

A very important tool that I am developing is the ability to keep going even when things are not perfect. I woke up this morning on the "punky" side, but it did not man that I stayed in bed, despite the fact that I was off from work today. I cou... Read more

When the Rubber Meets the Road

Monday, March 23, 2015      6 comments

I need reminding every day to stay on track with my goals, and keep myself in check. Sometimes, those reminders come from within, - which happens more and more as my resolve gets stronger, and also from my coach who never stops proving how much ... Read more
