Working Out

Blah week but the workouts are in review. post image

I must be honest.  I haven't been very motivated to workout this week.  It's kind of like I've been going through the motions.  There have been some serious highlights but for the most part I've been stuck in the funk.  On Monday, I returned to my workout roots and had a great time.  It was [...]

Week in review: best friends, grapes and the half ironman post image

Happy Friday y'all.  I don't know about you but I'm glad it's Friday.  I've been really busy at work so life has been a bit hectic this week.  It hasn't been a bad week at all, but it hasn't been the best week of my life either...it's just a week! Yesterday I did have a [...]

Happy Friday everyone!  This has been the LONGEST short week of my life.  I've been finding it hard to push through this week so I'm definitely glad to have made it to Friday.  I wanted to share some of my highlights from the week.  Sadly, I don't have many HIGHlights but there are a few. [...]

The truth is: I'm not fancy. People have asked me several times where I get my workout clothes, especially when I was plus size. I have to be honest. I get most of my workout clothes from Walmart. Even though I work out A LOT, I can't justify spending so much money on clothes that [...]

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 [...]

This week I haven't really be into anything.  My mind is on Denver next week which kind of made this week kind of blah for me. I haven't been motivated to do much so I've kind of just been off.  I probably just needed a little a reality break though.  I've still done my weekly [...]

At the beginning of the summer Willie started this water drinking thing because he felt like he wasn't getting enough.  He started doing it so of course I jumped on it too.  I just didn't use that annoying app that has reminders to drink all the time.  (Truth: Every time that sucker went off I [...]

Happy August everyone!  It's the start of a new month which means anything is possible.  Start thinking about the things you hope to accomplish this month. Yesterday was my momma's birthday!  It was kind of a chill day for her.  My  momma likes to celebrate occasions with food which is hard for Willie and I [...]
