Well looky here, another post. Wasn’t sure I was going to motivate myself to write weekly. But I feel it’s just one more thing I need to do to help keep me focused. If I write, I will want to continue to write about success and not failures. Don’t worry, I promise to have lots… Continue reading Encourage Yourself, Encourage Others
I’m rising before the roosters and shining due to the layer of sweat dripping off of me… for now, twice a week. But I’m also rising and shining in my overall workouts DAILY! I’m not just writing that for praise or kudos. I’m writing that because last year, I was a fat kid. I could… Continue reading Rise & Shine, Rise & Grind
I’m quick to tell you that it’s great to have a village of support but that you also need to be able to stand alone. Double-edged sword, I know. But there’s truth in it. While the village may be there to cheer you on and help you, sometimes it’s only at their convenience. Once a… Continue reading Sometimes… it does take a village!
…I decided to reclaim my health and boy has it been a journey. It’s been hard, it’s been easy, it’s been terribly inconvenient, it’s been sloppy, it’s been simple and it’s been complicated. Basically, it’s been all the things! A year ago I declared to the world I was tired of being FAT. Click here… Continue reading Well boys and girls… It’s been ONE year!
I’m wrapping up a year of fitness on June 15. And in that time I’ve committed to 3 similar but different processes. As my body and fitness has changed, I’ve had to keep changing small things to go along with my current state of being. I’ve had great success as long I stick to the… Continue reading Commit to the Process. Trust the Process.
You gotta just make things happen! I have ZERO magical powers. No extra hours in the day. Nothing. I got nothing more than you. It’s not always easy, but seriously it’s not really all that hard. It’s just bucking up, getting real, and quit making excuses! SERIOUSLY! If weight loss or getting healthier is not… Continue reading When Life is a Whirlwind
So I didn’t fall off the face of the earth, just been super busy… work, kids, work, baseball, booster club, etc. I’m still here, chugging along and then I realized it’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve checked in. It’s day 115 or something. I never heard from Advocare, so I guess I didn’t… Continue reading Sleep Matters
That is the question! So I’m no longer doing the Advocare Challenge, but I am still going strong in this journey! Eating is on point and I’m doing my best to get workouts in. And now, Mark Sisson, of Mark’s Daily Apple has got me looking into Keto. I’ve never not thought it was a… Continue reading Day 95?!? To Keto or not to Keto?
Y’all… guess what? I ran consistently. Well I jogged, I should say, which is better than a shuffle or whatever that movement is that is right below a shuffle is called. Because that is me on a daily. You can ask anyone at CrossFit Boom, that my run/jog is probably slower than a fast walker!… Continue reading Forging Ahead
Y’all it’s been a long time since I’ve committed to something so fully. I made it through the Advocare ONE/80 Transformation Challenge! For people like me who want instant success, well this is not the case. But there was change and progress. And that’s a win! I know most of y’all don’t care about what… Continue reading I DID IT!
