Dealing with an Off Day
We all have days when we are not at our best. It happens. Whether it is physical, mental, emotional, there are days where we just don't feel up to snuff, and don't want to do anything except maybe crawl under the covers, or go have a good, stiff... Read more
Both January and February have zipped by in a blink. I want to hold myself to a huger standard and with more accountability in March. I have a planner where I am keeping track of my food, my workouts with my coach, Hadley, and my blood sugar rea... Read more
Recently, my coach gave me the option to move to having 3 workout sessions with him per week. I was on that like white on rice. He brings an unmatched level of expertise and inspiration to my workouts, and also just to me. What he shares carries... Read more
Just an Every Day Thing
I'm getting it. It isn't just a once in a while thing. It's an every day thing. I am in the driver's seat to make the best decisions for myself. Even a non-decision is still a choice. It may be a choice I put very little thought into, but it sti... Read more
Pushing me along
Remember yesterday when I said I have been keeping my cool during stressful situations, ... well, not today, but I did go to the gym, met my coach, and worked out my aggression on the elliptical tonight. My coach is working with me to build stam... Read more
Connecting the Dots
At some point this week, I started eating really well. It was a rebound from a poor weekend where I started examining myself and my behavior. I found something surprising about myself that I don't know if I was doing before, or not, but it was s... Read more
My Pop was the greatest
In the waning minutes of Valentine's Day 2015, I find myself shedding a few tears. I've been pretty good all day, but now that I am sitting here in the dark and reflecting on it, I am feeling emotional. So rather than sit on the couch, I am goin... Read more
Sharing a Little Love
I wondered (for years) as to what my life's purpose could possibly be. Why was I here? What could I contribute? Those aren't questions I ask myself anymore. I know who I am. I know what I want to do. I have no idea how long I am going to be arou... Read more
Ain't Stopping Now!
Met my coach at the gym again tonight! I was sore from yesterday's workout but I wanted to keep my momentum moving forward. We did cardio tonight on the treadmill and on the elliptical. I hurt before, during and after the gym, but that just mean... Read more
Ready, Set, Focus!
Hours later I have found that my post workout happy head is still in control. I cannot stop grinning. I accidentally put myself in a weird spot tonight. I ended up with appointments scheduled with both my coach, Hadley, and my other occasional t... Read more
Going to my True North
I have been thinking about this a lot lately. How am I going to keep steady on this long road ahead to finally conquer my battles to drop the weight and overcome obstacles (mostly set there by me)? My true north is going to guide me there.

First night back and coming clean
I did it. I got back to the gym tonight. If my coach, Hadley, had not told me to meet him there, I might have skipped tonight for a variety of excuses. I didn't though - and now I have that first visit back in a week, I can keep building it from... Read more
Finding the pathway to success
Finding my way along the path takes a great and hearty effort. It takes a lot of mindfulness and making decisions about who I want to be and believing that I've got what it takes to make it happen.
Listening to the lead-up to the grammys o... Read more
I got this
There is nothing wrong that I can't fix. Life and circumstances put obstacles in my way sometimes, but that doesn't mean I can't find a way around or try something different. I am moving forward. I got this. There's nothing I can't do. One step ... Read more
The Mix-Up of Food and Feelings
How are feelings related to food? I am still trying to figure this one out.
I have not been feeling great this week, which was then compounded by catching a cold, off-kilter eating, little movement, and bits of hatred swimming around again.... Read more
