Happy Holidays: Fight to the Finish
Wow, I can't believe how long it has been since I've written a blog. I don't want you to think that I've fallen off the wagon. Sure I've had slips, but generally, I've been able to get back on track pretty quickly. Over the last year, I've been ... Read more
Back to Basics
I told myself that I would get back to basics this month by logging into Sparkpeople more often. Well here we are the middle of July and this is my first entry--first time logging in to Sparkpeople. I've been doing well over all but I've been sl... Read more
Burning Out; Time for a New Approach
I've been a Beachbody coach since July. I've really enjoyed leading challenge groups and seeing the progress of my challengers, but I have to be honest--I'm getting burned out. Over the last couple of weeks I've noticed an increase of negative ... Read more
Day 1: 21 Day Fix Extreme
Technically I'm on day 2, but I thought I'd be numerical. This is also my second round of the Extreme Fix. Have you heard of it? It's definitely intense, but I noticed a huge difference after the first round. It's definitely not a sustainable pr... Read more
Celebrating My Path to Victory (Pictures)
Today, I am celebrating victories!
This was me in 2008.

I'm Still Here!
Sorry it has been so long since I've blogged. I haven't been coming on Sparkpeople as much as I should because I've been so focused on my challenge groups on Facebook. I need to start using the calorie tracker again to help me keep track of my m... Read more
Mixing it UP!
I took Tabata today. I felt silly not being able to do half of the things they were doing, especially when the other classmates are also my PiYo students on Tuesdays. But I tried not to think about it. I particularly suffered when it came to 30 ... Read more
Push to 30!
Last year, It was my goal to be 175lbs by my 29th birthday (1/28). This year, my goal is to make it to 158lbs by my 30th birthday. I've been hovering around 160lbs for 4 months and it's time to get serious and break that plateau!
PiYo has b... Read more
I went down to the gym at 11:15 to make sure I was out of there before the 12:15 class. Steve was on the schedule to teach but he never showed up. So, I got to practice my new PiYo routine again!
45 minutes of PiYo + 45 minutes of PiYo=Sor... Read more
Commit to Change: 2015
Wow, what a year it has been-- 2014 proved to be my best year yet!
The highlights would have to be my trip to Ireland with hubby, completing my first 10k, becoming a Beach Body coach, and becoming a certified PiYo instructor.
Happiness is Contagious--Spread the cooties!
I had 6 women participate in my PiYo class today. They all loved the new routine. I had their limbs shaking by the end of the 45 minute workout. It truly is an awesome feeling, helping others achieve success. They're helping me too by keeping m... Read more
Exhaustion Run Amuck
I'm sure you feel the same way I do today. Tired, exhausted, and a little heavier. The carbo overload from last week is definitely taking its toll on me today, my first day back to work. I feel like a slug. I can definitely feel the extra weig... Read more
PiYo & Color Run
So, as promised I am making some changes in my life. Today, I downgraded a few apps that were helping me run my Beachbody business, so I won't be paying for those services. I'm going to keep my Beachbody coach subscription so I can keep gettin... Read more
Back to Basics
I've been struggling for a month to stay active and stick to my clean-eating plan, so today, I'm going to focus on the basics. What does that mean?
It means, spending some quality at the place where my journey truly began: Sparkpeople.
