motivation

It's time to stop and think for a moment.  What's the best thing about you? So many times we get lost in the shuffle of worrying about every day life or caring for others that we don't stop to think about ourselves.  There are many times when we admire so much about others but don't [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Go with your heart

Today has been a good day. I wasn't sure what I wanted to blog about today so I almost passed on writing a blog post today...until I had a moment when working out. I went to a cycle class today...and I didn't teach it. And you know what? It felt good. My hamstring is kind [...]

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 [...]

This morning started off very early for me.  It's the day in every marathon training plan people look at and think..."20 miles is a long way to go without someone cheering you on."  Well today was my day.  Honestly, I was skeptical about completing all 20 miles in the Texas heat and humidity but I [...]

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 [...]

Fitbloggin at a glance

This past weekend I spent it in Savannah, GA at my first blog conference, FitBloggin.  I didn't know what to expect when I arrived.  I was rooming with people I didn't know, traveling to a city I knew nothing about and embarking on the complete unknown.  Attending this conference was out of my comfort zone. [...]

Today is your lucky day if you do!  Remember last year when Willie and I were raising money for St. Jude's Children Hospital to run in the canceled marathon?  Well we are doing it again!  Last year, Team We Beat Fat raised $2500 for the the children at hospital.  This year we want to raise [...]

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 [...]
