weight loss

I was listening to sports radio today and someone spoke about losing weight.  It was asked if being overweight was an unhappy thing because most weight loss stories begin with someone saying they were unhappy with their size. I think it's a trap people fall in after they lost weight.  I've said it many times [...]

My weight loss gamer changer

For some reason people are saying that Willie and I were on The Biggest Loser. I've been stopped four times in two days of people asking me about the show. Sorry folks, we weren't on that show. The social aspect of the show would have had us voted out in the very beginning. But the [...]

I like to share something from the kitchen every week so this week I'm sharing a super easy breakfast thing. I use to wake up every morning to make us egg white omelets. That was before I started teaching cycle at 5AM so I had to find a way to make breakfast in the morning [...]

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 [...]

This weekend I went to visit my bestie in Mississippi!  It was her son's birthday so she had to put on a good show.  But first I had to get my run in. I love running there.  I must tell you, that is where I really fell in love with running.  That was the first [...]

I’ve been MEGA inspired

My inspiration changes from moment to moment and that's what keeps me going. That's the great thing about inspiration, it doesn't have to be just one thing or person. I must share, I've been inspired by a special person in my life: Patsy! I will keep this short and sweet because words will never be [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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. A lifestyle change is about developing new habits.  In our case, our lifestyle [...]
