I’m in the final countdown of my Advocare ONE/80 Challenge. Day 80 is Wednesday! Wooohooo! And I sit here and question myself regularly on what I will do once Day 80 is over and the next day is just a day. What will I do? Who will I be? In my last post I said… Continue reading You Define You
15 days in. 65 days to go. I had a much better weekend than last weekend. I actually had more of a schedule and I ate more balanced meals. This meant I wasn’t left floundering at the end of the day. I’ll be honest though, Saturday evening, I had some moments of boredom which left… Continue reading Learning to Cope – Day 15/80
I weighed in. I will do measurements soon. Here’s where I stand: On Jan. 8, I weighed in at 186.3! On Nov. 15, I was 179.2. Ugh. Why do I sabotage myself?!? Today after 10 days of the Herbal Cleanse and being back on track, I’m at 183. So 3.3 pounds down in 10 days.… Continue reading Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah… Day 11/80
The weekend was ROUGH! The struggle ain’t no lie. When I don’t have a schedule I’m off my game. But I’m surviving and staying the course! Here’s where I stand: Almost done with the Herbal Cleanse portion of the challenge. ONE.MORE.DAY! Then I will weigh and take measurements. 71 days to go for the challenge!… Continue reading Day 9/80… battle of the mind
Not the movie, Running Scared (with Paul Walker, great movie… watch it.), but serious running with a little fear in my whole being. Let me set the scene. CrossFit Boom is located off a business highway. There are lots of repair shops, industrial warehouses, etc. Boom’s location was a former auto shop most likely. There… Continue reading Running Scared
This train isn’t stopping. Not for lack of time or for injury. Believe me, there are many days where I want to throw in the towel. Pretty much since Day 1, I have negative and quitter type thoughts. But I also have the exact opposite feelings of accomplishment and pride for the good things too… Continue reading It’s a Mental Battle – E.V.E.R.Y.D.A.Y.
Everyday is You vs. You. Not you vs. them. Not you vs. her/him. How are you going to compete with yourself today? If you’ve been following along, I write about healthier living and fitness. So this YOU vs. YOU is focused on just that. But it applies to all aspects of life. If you’re always… Continue reading You vs. You
I’m 5 weeks into my journey of better health. It’s not been the most exciting ride of my life but I have a goal and I need to meet the goal. I’ve struggled a little bit here and there, it’s true. I’m on the slow and steady path to better health. Definitely not a fast… Continue reading The Power of Want-To
Y’all… it’s tough. The grind, the eating, the soreness. I’ve been here before and I’m sure most of you have at some point in your life but getting back to it is a struggle. A few posts ago, I said I’d be more positive. I think I am in general but it’s hard to not… Continue reading I am Going to Succeed!
