Feeling Inspired

Monday, March 02, 2015      3 comments

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

Sunday, March 01, 2015      5 comments

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

Friday, February 27, 2015      7 comments

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

Thursday, February 26, 2015      9 comments

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

Sunday, February 15, 2015      13 comments

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

Saturday, February 14, 2015      7 comments

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!

Thursday, February 12, 2015      8 comments

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!

Wednesday, February 11, 2015      12 comments

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

Tuesday, February 10, 2015      6 comments

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. ... Read more

First night back and coming clean

Monday, February 09, 2015      9 comments

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

Sunday, February 08, 2015      45 comments

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

Saturday, February 07, 2015      6 comments

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

Friday, February 06, 2015      11 comments

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

Wheels go round and round

Friday, January 30, 2015      9 comments

Do you remember the time you got your first car? How it felt to get somewhere on your own, under your own power? I do, vividly. It was a Datsun B210, the forerunner to what is now called "Nissan." I loved that car. It was a faded light blue/gree... Read more

Staying the Course

Thursday, January 29, 2015      5 comments

I am the closest I have been to meeting my goals in almost 9 years. I have had a couple of previous times where I achieved a decent amount of weight loss and got fitter. This time though, it the longest duration I have kept at it, and I think it... Read more
