goals

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 [...]

It's time to STOP worry about what everyone else is doing or what they are thinking about because it's doing nothing but wasting time. It's time for me to do me and you to do you!  Stop worrying about what other people are thinking about you because chances are they aren't thinking about you at [...]

It can happen to you

By the time most of you are reading this post we'll be halfway to China!  We haven't even left the airport and we're already having an adventure.  Let's just say some Chinese people are looking at us with envy because we have an extension cord at to charge our phone and we don't have to [...]

I sometimes wonder why Willie and I are getting so much praise for losing weight.  Our weight loss is not really a big deal to us.  It was something that we had to do, wanted to do and did!  It's really nothing special to us.  I wanted to stop feeling sorry for myself.  I wanted [...]
