I lost my car today. In an effort to get more steps on my FitBit, I thought I would take the long way around to get to it. It is important to note that I really paid attention this morning when I got to work (early) so I would be sure to know ... Read more

28. Because I am stronger than I think, but not as strong as I want to be. Since making this goal of 210,000 steps for the month, and doing the #Fit2Feast challenge, I have been doing the Leslie Sansone videos more regularly. At first, it ... Read more

27. Because I can make a big difference in a little while. I have been a Leslie Sansone fan for many years, albeit quite inconsistent. Starting October 1, she began a challenge called, "Slimmer by Thanksgiving." Something about that titl... Read more

25. To be less likely to end up dependent on our over-taxed healthcare system. I heard this phrase on a short video I saw ( www.brendanbrazier.com/#

24. So my pretty winter clothes fit A friend and I were talking yesterday about how our bodies are a little softer and rounder than they were last winter. We talked about the clothes we have for winter that we know would not fit if we put ... Read more

23. Because the blood test is coming Last time I went to the chiropractor, he asked me if I wanted to do another blood test and work with the homeopath again. I agreed, but decided to wait a month before I take the test. When I was going... Read more

20. Breathing easier is better. Wow, it is amazing how quickly we can change our bodies. One year ago this weekend, I ran (slowly, but I did run) a half marathon. This year, I am busting out of my pants and huffing and puffing trying to ... Read more
The deepest motivation
