The Voice In My Head That Says I Can't Do This is a LIAR

★ At the moment of commitment, the universe conspires to assist you.

★ Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit.

★ Remorse is the poison of life. ~ Charlotte Brönte

★ While wishing and hoping makes you a dreamer, acting and doing makes you someone who can turn dreams into reality.

★ Clear eyes, full heart, can't lose!

★ Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. ~ Steve Jobs

I'm currently getting my Master's degree at Claremont Graduate University. I earned my BA at Indiana University, Bloomington.

Other Information:
My current mantra (Aug 2014):

I will transform my body in order to create the sparkling, joyful, fun, confident, satisfying life bursting with wonderful people and amazing experiences that I want and deserve.


It's a little over the top, but I figured I'd go all out. :)

Basically I want to enjoy my life more and feel better about myself and my body. I also want to have more fun, wear cuter clothes, go on more dates, and become a fearless athlete.

Hey lady!! Not as much as I miss you!!! I was wondering the other day how your classes turned out and what you did this summer :) I'm in full conference mode now. Almost five weeks!

In answer to your question on my blog: I stretch after cardio, when my muscles are warm. I read somewhere that stretching cold muscles increases the risk of damage, and I believe it because I can't stretch as well or as comfortably until after I've warmed up. If I'm not doing cardio, I warm up a bit, stretch and then strength train.
