Transitioning to “off season”

First, I know I’m not competing anymore, but I’m constantly surrounded by competition conversation because 90% of my friends are competitors and I still research health, nutrition, supplements and exercise every single day. With that said, lets get into the purpose of this blog entry…. SO, I know, I know. “There is no off season”. […]

Lifting partner or No lifting partner?

I’ve gone back forth with this for years. Sometimes I enjoy a lifting buddy and sometimes I just want to get in there with my earbuds in, my head down and my game face on. If I do lift with someone, I think very highly of them. I’m very picky. I know they can either […]

Your Life Is An Interview

I was speaking with a patient the other day and telling her I was moving to start a new job and new chapter of my life. She asked, “did you interview for the position?” “No. I’ve known them for 3 years and they came to me. They know my good, bad, and ugly. With me, […]

I WORKOUT BECAUSE…

…I’M WORTH IT. What a gift each day is! And working out shouldn’t be an hour of your day that you dread or an hour of your day that for some people doesn’t exist! Thats right. Most people reading this blog already workout but I don’t guess I ever realized how many people in this […]

Resolutions vs. Goals

Resolution: a firm decision to do or not to do something.  Goal: The result of achievement toward which effort is directed.  I don’t believe in resolutions. I can say “I resolute to cut out sugar this year!” The moment I go crazy after a month of no sugar and eat an entire bag of peanut butter M&M’s…FAIL! […]

Cool idea for 2013

I’ll be honest. Of my 30 years on earth, 2012 wasn’t my favorite. I mean, I still enjoyed it! How could I not with all my blessings? I truly am a person that can say I count them daily. I don’t ever want the Lord to think I’m ungrateful, but the total opposite, I’m thankful! (sorry […]

Our duty as a friend

I love the book of Proverbs. Every verse is like opening a biblical fortune cookie. Lets focus on a particular one right now. Proverbs 17:17 A friend loves at all time, but a brother (sister) was born for adversity. (I threw in the sister just because.) This entire month has been burdenful (obviously i just […]

There is no “off season”

I promised a friend I’d write about this…Amy Kelly, this is for you! Off Season. For a competitor it means NOT dieting for a show. For me, since I’m probably retired from the stage it means life. Just because you aren’t dieting for stage, it doesn’t give you free reign to eat whatever you want, […]

It’s How You Live

Driving alone for 20 hours in one weekend gives a person a lot of time to think…what was my conclusion? I am one blessed girl. I had a wonderful weekend with the exception of a speeding ticket and some heart breaking news from a friend. I traveled 10 hours on Thursday through Illinois and Indiana […]
