After hitting my 10lbs mark, I put off weighing myself for a little bit. I was so happy about losing ten pounds and I didn't want to get discouraged if the scale tipped the other way or stopped moving. I jumped on this morning because lately I h... Read more

Do you ever have a moment where you feel a slight surge of energy and motivation to accomplish something that you know you should do but are feeling way too lazy to accomplish? I am noticing these "Now or Never Moments" a lot more since I starte... Read more

This last Sunday I climbed a mountain. For the very first time, I hiked to the summit of a 14,000 foot mountain. I'm usually pretty good at down playing accomplishments, but this was hard and I'm pretty damn proud of myself (and my buddy Emily! ... Read more

Friday Splurge!

I like rewards. As my sister fondly makes fun of me, the phrase "we deserve a treat" is somewhat embedded in my vocabulary (don't judge, I learned it from my mother!). Not too long ago, I had two jobs and got paid every Friday. I would do a litt... Read more

Weekends are always hard for me. I don't have my routine to fall back on, brunch is my favorite meal, the Mister is not active so when I spend time with him, it's usually very low key, and let's face it, I feel entitled to slack off because it's... Read more
