So the 80 days is up. I submitted my after pictures and essay. And now I wait to see if I get the opportunity at $25K. I don’t know that my change was enough compared to others or if my essay was compelling enough to win over the judges. We’ll see. I do know, that… Continue reading Now what? The Journey Continues.
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
I can’t believe I’m so close to Day 80! Including today, I have fourteen days to day 80/80. This challenge was so overwhelming back on Day 1 and now I’m in the homestretch. Several people have asked me, now what? What are you going to do on Day 81. My answer used to be EAT… Continue reading Home Stretch – 14 days to go!
Well whaddya know? I’ve made it halfway! I’m not gonna lie, it’s been a bumpy road but all-in-all, I’ve done really well. Yes I’m tooting my own horn! Cause seriously, this shit ain’t a walk in the park. I’ve been hitting my calories and my macros (for the most part). I’ve been following the Advocare… Continue reading Halfway There, 40 days to go!
Hello ladies and gents. Where do I begin? I actually started my journey back in June, 2017 and did alright through mid-November. Then went off the rails. I started back on Jan 8, 2018 with the Advocare ONE/80 Transformation Challenge. Pretty much starting over. I had taken so many steps in the right direction only… Continue reading Day 25/80 Check-In… mid-week blues.
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

It’s part of what makes us human. Do something and get results. Sadly, we are an instant gratification society. We want it now.… Continue reading Makin’ Gainz, Makes Me Happy!
Starting Saturday, I woke up with a chest cough. I’ve written it off to allergies since the Houston area tends to get me all crazy. Days later I still have this cough. It’s not an all day thing but when I cough it’s terrible and the tickle that’s at top of my chest is super… Continue reading Not 100%
