My glutes ache, and it feels good. This room is 80°, and it feels good. There’s sweat drenching my neck, my back, my temples. At first, it always bothers me. Now it feels good. My heart is pounding steadily, my lungs stretching wide. I’m so focused on my breathing that I can’t feel what my … More It Feels Good
Vulnerable moment, here: I’ve been busy, lately, and haven’t put as much effort into my health as I probably should. I’ve seen the scale creep up a few pounds, but I’ve been especially frustrated by watching areas of my body that I got so toned and muscular now starting to get soft. I … More Perspective: Two Years
Today, I drove out to the new house to meet a buddy from jr high & high school so he could give me a bid on some work on our windows. I’ve known this guy since I was 13 years old, when we were in choir together, and I have all kinds of great memories of … More The Ultimate NSV!
Um, have I mentioned we’re moving?! We’re moving. We decided a couple of weeks ago that maybe it was time. We started just taking a peek at listings of houses for sale, and suddenly I found myself signing a purchase agreement! We laugh, because big decisions in our little family always seem to move at … More Balance Balance Balance
Keeping it real: yesterday was a crazy day, and I made some pretty crappy food choices. I skipped breakfast, had less than stellar fast food for lunch, and a pretty underwhelming dinner. Taken separately, these choices would be OK. Put them all together, and they equal a day with nothing fresh, no fruits or veggies, … More Bad Day? That’s OK!

Motivation 911! I need help! Anyone else? … More LoseIt! Challenge or DietBet Anyone?
Let’s get real about motivation for a minute: I finally admitted to myself today that I am not enjoying the Strong program. I’ve only lifted twice in the last month or so, and part of it comes down to the fact that I haven’t enjoyed my workouts. Strong produces great results, but if it means I start … More When a Workout Just Isn’t Working
For the last week or so, I’ve been taking part in the Choosing to Love Myself challenge over on The Small Seed. I love this challenge; it’s all about loving who you are as a woman, right now, and not waiting until you lose weight or have hair like that girl on Instagram or fix those things … More Remembering Your Worth
Oh, how I do not miss standing in group pictures and feeling like I want to hide. The left photo was at a friend’s wedding, and I was so happy to see everyone. I was really enjoying myself and catching up with old friends was so lovely. I knew the pictures wouldn’t be flattering of … More #TransformationTuesday
