If you plan it, results will come…

Planning can be your best tool to success. I have heard the saying “fail to plan. Plan to fail” and it has become a personal motto. I have found that when I lay out the tasks in front of me that I am able to follow through with them much better. It gives me a…

Excuses, Excuses, Excuses.

There is a saying floating around that says, “Someone who is busier than you is working out right now”. That is true of course. For the last 2 months I have been completely out of whack. I find it almost impossible to workout and I work at a gym! In April, I had sinus surgery….

Counting my blessings

Life is short and life is not easy. So how do we stay positive in a world that is constantly throwing negativity at us? I find that a good start is counting my blessings. It helps to keep me grounded when optimism can be running low. I try to make a point of ending my…

Got Change?

Change is good. Even if you think that it is bad you often find out it was just the change you need to transition into a better situation. Change can facilitate growth. I know that I am personally fearful of change but in retrospect it has always been a lesson in life. I had a…

Hemp Protein: Hit or Miss?

To cut down stomach discomfort, I have jumped on the plant protein bandwagon. I have always been a tad lactose intolerant but it was easier to ignore the symptoms than to cut it out. I am at least cutting back by switch most smoothies to plant protein and not using cow milk for coffee and…

Seeing is Believing

via Daily Prompt: Vivid I believe the Law of Attraction truly does work. I also believe that the Universe is not going to just hand you things. You have to work for them. It is sort of like the saying “God helps those who help themselves”.  Everything all sort of comes together but there is…

The Importance of Self Care

As a mother, I naturally put everyone else first. I take care of my children’s needs before my own. For almost three weeks we have had an awful virus in the house. The kids have been out of school several days and I was out of work as a result. I wasn’t able to work…

I’ve got my mojo back baby! Yeah!

As you all know I have had trouble keeping on task lately. I watch people work out all day and I rarely have the time to fit in the self care I so desperately need. My job is wonderful. I love that I have the option to exercise there as a perk of my employment. However, my schedule…

Easy Does It

Usually when New Year’s comes around, we all start off with a bang and go full on then we get tired of keeping up with everything. This leads to roughly 80% of people giving up on their goals before the end of the year. Burnout is very real thing. A huge lifestyle change can be…

Happy New Year!

It has been 4 months since my last post. Time flies pretty fast, doesn’t it? What have I been doing? I’ve been being a mom, working,  and getting through the rest of the year.  I didn’t make any progress my journey since July. I feel embarrassed that I have neglected myself but I know sometimes we…

Back in the saddle…again

  I haven’t had a post since I hurt my back. I am definitely on the mend now. I didn’t gain any weight but I didn’t lose any during that time either. I’ve been working a lot of positivity, gratitude, and working the law of attraction in my favor. If you haven’t read The Secret,…

One step “back”

I did a bad thing when I thought I was doing a good thing. On Wednesday, I went to my Zumba class as usual. The instructor who was filling in was someone who I had attended several classes before. I am now pretty confident with her choreography. The class was full and my spot in front…
