Go on adventures!

I've started walking, jogging, and hiking outdoors four days per week. To keep things interesting, I've made a list of parks/trails near my house. Each trail has a number next to it. The night before I go, I use a number randomizer on Google to pick where I'm going to go for the next day's exercise....

Nothing Changes if Nothing Changes

My favorite quote of all time. You simply have to change what you are doing to see a change in your life. This quote has truly changed my life. If you are not willing to change the way you have always done things, then things will simply stay the same.

Perhaps you've heard Albert Einstein's...

Log In. Embrace the points. Premium Coaching.

Log in. Log in. Log in. Just do it. It's been said before, but it's the truth. Just logging in helps me get off on the right track in the morning. When I wait to log in later in the day, I don't do as well. (But if I don't log in early, logging in late helps me turn things around.) Even if all I do...

A fitness partner

I couldn't have gone on this journey alone. My boyfriend has been by my side through this journey and keeps me motivated. We go to the gym 5 days a week and take a class together. I don't think I could go to the gym and just get on a machine for 45 minutes, that is so boring. I love our classes, yog...

Share Your Journey

Previous times I've kept my journey notes confined to here at SparkPeople on my blog. This time around I've been much more public, sharing on Facebook and telling anyone who asks what/how I'm doing about SparkPeople. I have over a hundred people following my journey and encouraging me along the way....

I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired

This is what my clients say all the time... and I truly relate... I do great for a week and mess it up the two weeks following. I have too much to focus on and too many reasons to lose weight, get fit, and be healthy... I don't get why I can't just stay motivated and stop "falling". Ugh. I've worked...

Uninterrupted Quiet Time

Every morning before I go to work (no exceptions), I make tea, light an incense stick, sit at my little self made altar, and I focus on my breathing, read inspirational literature, and write. This has made a huge difference in my life. No matter what kind of anxiety I wake up with, I always feel re...

Cherish the little victories

As I was gaining weight I didn't pay attention to loosing the ability to some things comfortably. When did I stop being able to sit cross legged? When did running become such a chore? Where did my toes go? How did I not notice that gaining weight was taking away my ability to do things I used to ...
