No one can do it for you!

Tuesday, March 26, 2013



It's your journey & your journey alone, whether you are trying to lose weight or you're training for a race. People can come with you, but everyone is unique & different & your path may be a bit different. That's ok -- if we all were the same, this life would be so boring, right? emoticon

Discipline is one of the keys. No one really likes that word, but it's an important one.



Another important fact:



Don't forget that exercise should be a reward:



Give it all you've got!!



Remember, it's a lifestyle, not a diet:



You CAN do this!! I CAN do this!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Workout or easyout?

Saturday, March 23, 2013



I am blessed to be able to afford to go to the gym. I guess God knew if I had to do it at home on my own, it would never happen. If I'm going to pay my money & go in there, you can bet that I'm going to be nearly dripping by the time I leave. I'm not going to just waste my money.

Sometimes even as hard as I work, the results are super slow.



But I'm not going to quit. Exercise makes me feel too good!!! I've begun to crave it.

Strength training is my favorite. There's nothing like the sense of accomplishment you feel when you're a little sore the next day.



Today, don't take the easyout!! Get in a great workout!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    I know the results seem slow, but I bet you are making a lot more progress than you think! If you are doing a lot of strength training, those muscles are probably replacing the fat! I bet you feel so much stronger now and your attitude is great! Progress is being made on the inside and the outside whether it feels like it or not! I love the LIGHT quote! That will be an amazing day!!! Thanks for being such an encouragement to me!!!

Where have you been? Where are you going?

Friday, March 22, 2013



If you have a lot of weight to lose, or if you are training for your first 5K, 10K, half marathon, or marathon, etc., you may feel you have a super long way to go. That's ok. Sometimes our journeys are long -- as my dad would say "character building." emoticon That's a different way to look at it.

You're building/creating a new you & great things take time.



Every decision you make regarding your health today will change your tomorrow, whether for good or for bad. I have to keep that in mind every day!! This is a long journey for me & I want to win very, very badly!!! I'm getting closer to the halfway point with every day that passes.

There are going to be days where you have a slip-up. It's ok -- we're human & humans make mistakes. I have slip-ups too, I'm not immune to them.



Make yourself stronger after your mistakes by learning from them & continuing to move forward.

The most important thing you can do as you continue your journey is to enjoy every single moment!! Enjoy all of it -- the good, the bad, the ugly, the mistakes -- they're all part of you -- part of the lessons we learn about ourselves -- the scars that make us who we are.



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon
