Weight Loss

It's hard to go back in time. That's what makes it a little difficult to blog here sometimes. When I blog here, I feel like I'm stuck in the in between. I think it's time to get out of this place...it's just not a good place to be. It's called a transformation for a reason [...]

Dos and don’ts of strength training post image

I'm not expert but I had to figure a couple of things out on my own. (Always remember to consult your physician before starting a new diet and/or workout routine.) I wanted to share with you some of my personal rules for strength training. Incorporating strength training into your fitness routine will only make you [...]

Knowledge is power so go get it! post image

My favorite graduate school professor told me "knowledge is power but people don't want to pay for that power." Paying for information doesn't necessarily mean a monetary exchange, sometimes is a time exchange too. Hearing that statement changed my world and continues to influence how I look at things now. I want to preface this [...]

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.

This week I took the question [...]

This past weekend, I was at Fitbloggin in Savannah! There were lots of things for us to try while there. The biggest take away from the weekend was getting my numbers checked at the Walgreens Way to Well truck. Everyone needs to get their numbers checked. I spoke about how Willie and I didn't do [...]

I'm riding in the car back home father a really long day. Fitbloggin in Savannah has come to a close and I'm back in Texas. I'm not going to go into much detail right now about the conference because there are some things I really want to share with all you readers. I learned a [...]

Tuna Chickpea Salad

This past weekend I took my bestie to Trader Joe's and Whole Foods!  She had never been.  I was shocked when I found this out because I love those places.  Any health foodie loves Whole Foods, right?  Yes I know it's expensive BUT you can find stuff in that store you can't get most places. [...]
