It's different for everyone and it's going to change over time.  Keep that in mind.  I've said it many many times.  The journey I took is different from the one Willie took and will be different from the one many people take. A lifestyle change is about developing new habits.  In our case, our lifestyle [...]

On Sunday, I ran the Revel Rockies Marathon that ended in Morrison, CO.  I can't tell you where it started because we had to take a bus to the top and there was no cell signal. This was the very first Revel ROCKIES race, so it was cool to be apart of the event. The [...]

The truth about stress

Wondering where I've been the past couple of weeks?  I've been stressed.  It's left my unmotivated to do much.  I've still be working out because HELLO that's a big stress reliever.  I think if I didn't workout, I would be a bundle of nerves and anxiety.  When I'm stressed or in a foul mood, the [...]

Are you a proactive or reactive person? Do you let situations control your [...]

If there is something you want in life, you MUST go after it! It's time to be proactive. Sometimes talk is cheap!  It's time to stop talking and time to start doing something.  "You are what you do, not what you say you’ll do." I posted this quote on Facebook this morning and it got [...]
