goals

I don't know why but this morning I woke up thinking about the things that people said I should/would never do. It's easy to get wrapped up I. The idea of what others think and say about us. I could sit here and tell you that you shouldn't care, but I know it's easier said [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

I’m here to tell you to ignore the comps.  It does no good.  A big part of my motivation throughout the weight loss journey was to begin with the end in mind.  I visualized what I thought I would like in the end and that really kept me going.  Fast forward to now, I don’t [...]

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 [...]

I'm late posting this morning because I was sidetracked. I hate it when that happens. On Saturday night, I ran El Scorcho. It's a race that typically starts at midnight but if you were doing the 50K option, you had the choice to early start. You have until the sun comes up to finish the [...]

Work in progress

I am not the person I want to be, but that's ok.  I may never be that person I want to be because once I get to where I'm going, I always see something else. I wanted to lose weight and when I did lose the weight I wanted to run a half marathon. After [...]

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 [...]

Today is my birthday

I'm one year older and wiser and I don't mind!  My 20s weren't that eventful and filled with lots of LOWS but my 30s are amazing!  For the first time I starting to live my life.  I'm starting to enjoy things and I'm definitely starting to open up.  I still have my moments of being [...]

Failing at recovery

This shouldn't be an issue. I'm on Team Chocolate Milk. I should be mastering recovery, but I'm failing. I noticed after I ran the half marathon on Sunday that I was a bit more beaten up than usually. I just figured it may have been due to the fact I ran the back half of [...]
