The day the XL was next.

I've made it no secret that I'm trying to eat right and exercise regularly.

One of the benefits of this is weight loss. I know this seems like an obvious statement. HOWEVER - the day that weight loss becomes a benefit and not the thing that is your motivation: You're Winning.

Uploaded by: asifthebes on
One thing about weight loss, is it all revolves around a single number. A number that can fluctuate enormously throughout the course of a day. A number that can manipulate you into eating too little the day before "Weigh-In Day" because you just want that number to be less than the last time.

Here's the thing though: If you live a HEALTHY lifestyle, your body can't help but to lose the weight. You'll be able to celebrate after every meal, after every workout because everything you do is done with the intention to succeed.

Now I'm not going to tell you how much I weigh and how much I was when this all started - YET. That's another bog post.

What I can celebrate with you is this: I have a new article of clothing. It is a Womans XL tight fitting sweater. Have you ever had a piece of clothing that is "the one size down"? The one thing you can't wait to fit into?
This sweater is that one thing...

Bring it on world, XL is next!

My First Running Event

"Are you nervous?"
That was probably the question I was asked the most in regards to participating in my first running event. Santa Shuffle - 5km Fun Run. The answer was always no, but here's why: I've got the coolest new friends. I've mentioned this before, but Skye and Kathryn have started a run club on Saturday mornings. It's here where I have met the most awesome new friends.

But I don't waaaaaaanna!

In my last blog post I talked about how I am doing this "#LetsGetPhysical" lifestyle change.

Well I just want to talk to you about a common 'problem' I run into at least once a week. I call this problem the "But I don't waaaaaaaaanna!"s.

Monday, November 5, 2012

Holy Moly. Did I just do that?

So... I took up running.
Yeah, for those of you who've known me for a while, I know what you're thinking.

First Walk/Jog Home from Work
August 28th, 2012 I started an initiative to get healthy. I call it "#LetsGetPhysical".

#PositiveThurs - Week 74!

Hello Everyone!!!

I just want to say that you all have made a difference in someones life. My day yesterday was a struggle to stay positive. I had to go to the hospital for a test (don't worry, I'm ok). The hospital is not a fun place. There are sick people everywhere, they're sad and it is hard to find smiles. So while I was waiting, I read the #PositiveThurs stream! THANK YOU!

Anyway, I hope you have an amazing Halloween and I can't wait to see all your amazing pictures for next Thursday!
Thank you for being YOU. You're the best at it.

#PositiveThurs - Week 71!! :)

WOW! What a WEEK! I'm all about being open and honest, so let me share a little honesty with you.
I wasn't feeling very #PositiveThurs last night. I had to deal with a bunch of car issues and I didn't really check in with the #PositiveThurs community yesterday because I didn't have the 'oomph' to nurture the community.

BUT LOOK AT YOU GUYS! You rocked it! This week had the most contributors. I'll be notifying 130 UNIQUE users that they are in the #PositiveThurs recap. Yeah. That is absolutely AMAZING!!

So Thank you. Thank you for BEING A COMMUNITY. Supporting each other and celebrating each others joys. YOU INSPIRE ME. Thank you!!
