The Freedom Fitness Bundle – 6 Days Only

The Freedom Fitness Bundle We all want to improve our fitness. Want our bodies to feel youthful, healthy, and strong. We want to wake up confident every morning, loving what we see in the mirror. But let’s face it; working out consistently is hard. We’re busy staying on top of work, making sure our kids finish their homework (not to mention their vegetables), and trying to find time to sleep. With so much going on, it’s crucial to find a {Read More}

Create A Schedule That Works For You

Create a Schedule That Works For You Everyone has a different schedule to keep.  A different set of non-negotiable tasks and appointments we need to keep daily.  Even those “set” ones can change day to day.  So finding the best time for you to work out is a very personal (and sometimes difficult) task.  BUT it’s a very important step in your new life goals. For me, my schedule is already jam-packed.  Between homeschooling my girls, working from home, dance {Read More}

What’s Your Why?

What’s Your Why? Everything we do we do for a reason.  Whether we are conscious of that reason or not.  However, when get to the “point of action” our reason can be what drives us.  Our why. One of the best places to start with your weight loss journey is with your why.  Why do you want to lose weight?  Your health?  Your family?  That dress you’ve been drooling over?  A special occasion?  Why are you ready to change your life? The last couple {Read More}

New Year – New You

New Year – New YOU Happy New Year!!!  What is it about those 3 little words that you feel so energized and like anything is possible? I was feeling very excited about 2017 and now it’s here.  I’ve been spending time praying about what is important to me, how to prioritize my time, and what to allow myself to focus on.  See, 2016 (well at least the last half of the year) was very very difficult.  I lost my job that {Read More}

Plan Your Attack – Fitness & Weight Loss Planner

Plan Your Attack Fitness & Weight Loss Planner Can you believe it? It’s nearly 2017!!!  I can honestly tell you I am so NOT ready for it.  I mean, 2016 has not been my best year as far as weight loss and fitness goes (not my worst either).  It started off great.  Then… hit a bump.  I got back on track.  Then hit a pothole and I have staid there ever since. So after having a little pity-party for myself {Read More}

Turning The BIG 4-0

Turning The BIG 4-0 I’ve been thinking about this post and this day for awhile now.  Longer than anything else I’ve ever written I think.  Entirely too long for sure.  Turning 40…  I’m just not ready. I have gone from wanting to run and hide from this day.  To wanting to cry.  To pretending it’s not really happening.  But it is.  I’m 40. Maybe it wouldn’t feel so sad and let’s face it – depressed – if I had reached {Read More}

Down 31 Pounds And Counting

Down 31.2 Pounds & Counting It’s been a long road of changes.  Trial and error.  Ups and downs.  Any time you’re making major changes in your life, ANY type of changes, it can be tiring.  Well, this weight loss thing is no different.  It’s hard!  It’s challenging!!  It’s exhausting!!!  But it’s worth it! Two years ago I crossed the 200.0 lbs mark on my scale.  I literally sat down and cried.  I hadn’t been that heavy since I was pregnant with {Read More}

Jump Start Your Health

Jump Start Your Health In August I had enough of feeling lousy, tired, and feeling my heart flutter. I knew I was not eating in a way that producing good health- ice cream, cookies, cake, are not parts of a well-balanced diet. In my head I knew I needed to change things around drastically. However, the will power to do so was just not there. In the evening I would crack and grab a few cookies from the pantry or {Read More}
