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…

Progress Report-July 2016

I found my Fitbit! It was in the same place I put it when I lost it last time. You would think that I would have looked there first! I learned my lesson and I’m back on track. A few weeks ago, I started getting frustrated with my slacking. I’m normally pretty disciplined and I’ve let stress…

I lost my Fitbit. =(

It has been a long time since I posted. I’ve fallen into a bit of a fitness funk. I’m still going to the gym and trying to eat right but I’m not working to my potential. I’ve been stressed. I’ve been tired. I can make a ton of excuses and it still doesn’t make that…

Understanding-Daily Prompt

I see you there. You’re trying to blend in with the crowd. You don’t want to be noticed. You feel like the biggest person in the room. I see you fidgeting with your clothes. I see you self-comparing to other women. Don’t worry. They don’t see you, but I do. I see the beautiful woman…

Twirling away…

Image Credit: Playfuloakdance.tumblr.com   Even though I’m not at my goal, I feel foxy as Hell. I will wear sleeveless tops without worrying that other people would think my arms were too big. I wear tight fitting items that hug my curves in all my favorite places. There is no shame in my game. I…

If you can see it, you can be it.

Let’s face it. Humans are visual creatures. If we weren’t we wouldn’t feel all the pressure to look good. In weight loss, visualization is key. It may take a long time to get to where you want to be but if you can see it, you can be it. I never would have thought I’d…

Not losing? Keep going!

Lately I’ve noticed the scale number plummeting. I’ve gotten to the point where I’m not craving carbs and sugar again. I’m about 20lbs away from the big 100 now! I try to only weigh myself on Monday morning but I have a physical coming up next week and I’ve been peeking a little more.  This…
