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.

This week I took the question [...]

Welcome to everyone who found my blog through the Jet Magazine current issue. It was something totally unexpected and I didn't even know we made the magazine until my mother-in-law told me. It's a great honor. It's not a great honor because are in the current issue, it's a honor because I really feel like [...]

There was a little update about Willie and I on The Rachael Ray Show! Apparently, we are weight loss all-stars. Here is the clip from the show: Once again, I want to thank Rachael Ray and her wonderful staff for everything they have done for us! It means the world to us to be able [...]

Happy Friday everyone! I'm feeling a little bit under the weather which means I've over medicating myself before we leave for China. It's a bummer but things will get better. I will definitely sleep it off until it's time to leave. I can't think about anything but going to China which has made my blogging [...]

I like to think I'm ok with it, but I know I'm not.  I haven't been bashing my body image but I've been more conscious of it lately.  Maybe it's because I've been out of town lately and really settled into my usual pattern, but I've been noticing. I talk about my legs way too [...]
