This blog is meant to be motivational, first for myself and then for anyone else who might read it.
It is meant to be honest, fun and educational.
I will not post anything on this blog that is not real-life experience or has not been thoroughly researched.
Rudeness, carelessness and advertising in comments is unacceptable.

I'm referring to a health nut here.
There are days when you are all gung ho - let's do this! Get up! Exercise! Eat healthy! Be positive! Live it!
These are the good days. You are excited and full of energy and want to share your great feelings and mood with everyone around you.
There are days when you are all grrr - I am so not there. Let me just sleep ten more minutes. I don't feel like working out. I want to eat a bag of chips. Blah.
These are the hard days an...Read Full Post »

So I know that I have not written anything here in a few weeks. I have been immersed in learning. Learning is something that we should never stop doing. I love learning and I am learning a lot that is going to help me and in turn will help you.
I am taking classes on health, nutrition, motivation, success and most of all happy freedom! I am seriously looking forward to taking you on this journey with me.
One thing that I learned over the past few wee...Read Full Post »

I believe that one of the first steps to becoming healthy or fit is to change your self image.
You are not fat, you are not ugly, you are not worthless.
You may be unhealthy at this moment in your life because you have unhealthy habits.
You may feel unattractive because of your self image or possibly because someone in your life has spoken those words into your life.
Your worth comes from what you have inside you not from how you look on the out...Read Full Post »

I have been doing some learning about being healthy and fit. There are a lot of really good programs out there but you have to beware of schemes and fads.
Education - I have learned that my body knows what makes me feel good and healthy. I have been eating very healthy for about 3 weeks and then I had two less than healthy meals in one day and I literally felt sick to my stomach in the middle of the night. I knew it was the food because since then I have not felt sick like that and pri...Read Full Post »

I just finished listening to a webinar about goals. I think we all make plans to achieve goals but sometimes we do not really know what it is going to take to reach those goals. I, for one, have had dreams and really wanted to do things in my life only to be thwarted by an unknown force that I was not prepared for when I started.
We all need people in our lives who will help push us toward our goals. I have a great network of people who are helping me work toward my goals right now. Yo...Read Full Post »

Just got in a 20 min 4.7 mile cycle and while I am worn out, I also feel great!
Speaking of feeling great, this week I celebrate my little successes and feelings. This is important. You need to share these little success and feelings with your support team. If they do not celebrate with you or if they return negative vibes, find a better support team because you need this!
1 - I started noticing that my pants were not as snug...I love it!
2 - I started noticing when I ...Read Full Post »

This morning I was making a peanut butter banana protein shake for my husband and I out of a mix. As I was drinking it, I told my husband - one day, we will be making these from fresh ingredients.
It is a lot of work to change a lifestyle. I have struggled with this over the past 8 years. For a while, we were doing good, working out, going to the YMCA, eating healthier and then along came a job opportunity that would change our lives significantly, we just did not know the toll it woul...Read Full Post »

Sometimes motivation or inspiration may not be enough. I can have motivation and be all gung-ho to be active, to get fit, to eat healthy and not achieve any of this because I did not plan ahead.
Sometimes I am inspired to make a great new salad, or start a great new 'diet' or workout routine but I find that if I do not make plans, my motivation may end before it begins.
Personal Experience -
Day in and day out I would wake up in the morning motivate...Read Full Post »

This is the first day of the rest of my life. This blog and website is about what it is taking for me to get fit. It is honesty. It is the struggle. It is the fun. It is the reward.
For the past six years, my husband and I have been talking about getting fit. We have done a few things to help but we have never really done it. We bought a treadmill and it sat in our living room in Tennessee virtually untouched because we never had time. We bought a weight bench with the notion that if we...Read Full Post »

When I decided to take this journey, there was not a single part of me that was not in it. I decided that I was going to do this mind, soul and body (hence the name of the website and company).
I have uncertainty for sure. I am not sure how everything is going to come together. I am not sure how long it is going to take to really ge...Read Full Post »
