The other day I did a Facebook Live to answer questions about weight loss and what not.  If you missed it, I’m sorry but you can go back to watch it.  Someone asked a question about my motivation to keep going and answered about beginning with the end in mind.  This got me thinking a little deeper about what motivates me to do what I do. I found my passions. It’s easy to be motivated when I found something that I love to do.  I fell in love with running and it gave me something to work towards.  Running gave… View Post

People often ask me what was/is the hardest part of the weight loss journey.  Sometimes I want to say, “keeping the weight off” and that is true, but the hardest part is really just getting started. If you are ready for your weight loss journey it is important to take the steps.  I wanted to lose the weight many times before I actually did.  Do you know what the biggest difference was the last time?  I actually took the steps to make it happen.

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone is starting off their week off right.  Monday is a time to start anew and set new goals.  This is your moment, don’t waste it.

Even if it’s just a fraction of change, I want to be better than yesterday. Yesterday, I ran a 10K. I had high hopes for this race, but it didn’t work for me. I thought it was going to rain… View Post

Happy Monday, all!  It’s a rainy day.  The baby is napping and I’m working from home today.  These are the moments that I love.  It’s supposed to rain all day so I decided the right choice was to hit the treadmill this morning to run.  I’m over making excuses why I can’t run so today is the day I decided to make the choice to run.  Running on the treadmill isn’t my favorite thing but the most important thing is to get those feet moving. The thing we have to remember is our life is made up of our choices.… View Post
