Do it for you

Everything happens in its own time and every step of this journey has brought me to where I am today. “Stay committed to your decisions but stay flexible in your approach.” -Tom Robbins Three weeks of Keto and I’ve lost five pounds. I’m not super happy with that.  It’s making me batty to be quite…

Keto what?

Who thought it would be a good idea to give up coffee alcohol and carbs all in the same day?! That was a little tough! April 22nd I took the plunge and started embarking on a keto lifestyle. The idea is to eat fewer than 20 grams of carbs per day putting your body I…

Two years

I think when life is stressful I start grasping at things I can control. And it drives me crazy – because there are SO MANY things completely out of my control. You can decide how you feel regardless of your circumstances, and I chose love over everything.  It’s been a tough few months, but I’m…

Sundaying

Weekend warriors A Sunday well spent bring a week of content…or chaos one of those It’s hard to find balance there’s so much to be accomplished on the weekends and I don’t want to sacrifice time with my kids doing fun things too. But we find a way to conquer it all. I ask a lot of…

Hello Spring

Spring – what a wonderful opportunity for a new beginning. New mindset. Every experience has brought me to where I am in this very moment. It’s finally thawing out (or so it feels) here this week and I couldn’t help but have a smile on my face as I was riding around running errands for…

Because…adventure

I’ll do everything within my own means to make the days count – not count the days. I lost both of my parents pretty young – on the cusp of retirement and they didn’t even touch on most of the things they wanted to do. You’ve got one shot, make it count. This is by…

Dear weekend, I love you

After the week I’ve had – I spent nearly the entire the day in bed, and I don’t even feel a tad guilty. The only time I left was to go to the doctor, get my blood work and pick up Chinese food tonight (which I ate in bed), because; why the hell not? Just over…

Worth the effort

Effort is the indicator of all interest and actions speak louder than words; I promise you, I am worth the effort. Just a quick check in on January success. More soon! My January reboot was a great success. While I did return to the gym, I made nutrition my focus. I managed to lose 7.8…

Project 2018

What you hear repeatedly, is what you believe. Who do you listen to every minute of every day?  Yourself. What if you simply devoted this year to loving yourself more?  Forget everything else. I am truly grateful for my struggle because without it, I wouldn’t have stumbled across my strength. I mentioned in a recent…

All me

There is no such thing as being too busy.  If you really want something, you’ll make time for it. Fill your cup first. I did something a little uncharacteristic of me; I spent the last 24 hours with myself as my highest priority. It took planning, a few weeks in the making; and I hemmed…
