Stay the course
You will see the
fruit of your labor

I am developing consistency and embracing accountability.

Hi, what you will find here on my page is me being honest and accessible...for more insight into who I was or how I was feeling when I started this journey read my first blog...it pretty much sums it up. "The Eagle in my profile pic."

Much Love 2 All

Make a choice to:

Spark instead of Splurge
Blog instead of Binge
Journal instead of eating Junk
Give instead of Take
Live instead of merely just Exist
Enjoy instead of Devour
Kiss instead of Criticize
Reminisce instead of Ruminate
Do instead of Delay
Be grateful instead of begrudging


Be aware of what you put in to your mind
as well as what you put in your mouth.
There are toxins found in our thoughts as well
as our foods...in your temple (body) there is no place
for any of this negativity whether it is edible or audible.

Remember you current weight is someone's goal weight

Food is just fuel, nothing more nothing less. Never fill up if you do not need to.


I have knowledge about health, our bodies and exercise (since I am a health care professional)...but knowledge does not work if you do not apply it.

I am motivated (by internal and external factors)

I am eating balanced meals and working out consistently.

I have decided to be consistent and apply this wealth of information that I have to myself. Stop beating around the bush and just do it right!
