The truth about life

You may have noticed the blog was a little scarce last week.  I hate when that happens.  I'm not one to schedule posts and send them through the loop.  Maybe I should do that in times like this but I like to stay authentic to my readers and post real stuff.  This past week I've [...]

I've been a little MIA this week.  It's been a busy busy week with my full-time and part-time job.  I haven't been doing a good job at keeping you informed with what I've been doing. First off, it's launch week at the gym which keeps me busy.  That means more teaching in my schedule.  It's [...]

Five years ago today, I married my best friend. I don't want to make it about anything other than what it is. This is a day that Willie and I decided that we would become family. We promised to take care of each other and love each other unconditionally. Willie is the kindest, most compassionate [...]

The week is almost over and I can't wait for it to end. It's been a hard week or a couple of hard weeks have really hit me hard. A lot things haven't gone right, but I've been good at focusing on the good things. This week, I've been trying to step my game up. [...]

This day in 2011, Willie and I decided that it was time for a change.  Together we took the steps to lose weight and transform our lifestyle.  This morning I woke up to tell Willie today was the day and he didn't remember.  I take that as a good thing because that means we've come [...]

Race Recap: Texas Marathon

2015: A year of new goals

I've been contemplating my goals for the new year.  I'm taking a new approach to my goals this year.  I sat down to think about what I accomplish in the new year and most of them come in the form of being true to myself and using my voice.  It seems to be more internal [...]

Hello 2015!

The post is late, but I wanted to share how I spent the first day of the year with you.  First off, I want to tell you how I spent New Year's Eve! First I carb loaded and then... I went to sleep at 9pm. This morning we got up early so I could run [...]

Simply the best of 2014

It's the last day of the year and I feel like I should put the final stamp on the year so I'm not writing about 2014 tomorrow.  I have so many things I want to say but I know it's stuff that everyone wants to hear/read.  2014 was a great year for me.  I found [...]

The new year is coming which means it's time to make new plans.  It's time to move forward.  It's time to leave 2014 in the past.  The door of possibilities swings open again, so don't be close minded!  Take the time to explore new avenues of in life.  Try something that you never thought you [...]
