The battle belongs to who?

Sometimes I find myself in a battle with food. I usually win, but every now and then food wins. I stop and tell myself, "food, you have this small victory, but the war is MINE!"

Breathe...the breath of life

As a fitness professional, one of the many things I notice is that when big things happen, the 1st thing we do is hold our breathe!! WHY?? Then we get upset, molehills become mountains! But if breath, deeply, slowly, & stay calm, somehow it does not seem so bad. We can move thru the chaos with ease

Being True to Oneself

Accepting our limitations and our flaws will make us a better person. Knowing the problem and finding the solution is essential. I have accepted that I am obese and I will work hard to meet my goal. I want to live a long healthy life.
