Fighting Beyond the Pain

The last few weeks have been pretty hard for me. There has been tremendous pain, overwhelming anxiety, and that no good bastard name depression. It hasn’t been easy, there were moments when I got so upset I just started throwing pillows. I really didn’t want to break anything but also needed to get my frustration…

The Grit Journey

Hello you lovely people, are you enjoying your weekend? Well, I think I might be but we’ll just have to see once Monday rolls around. I actually wanted to take some time to explain what The Grit Journey was about and how you can join me if you would like. The Objective Grit: Is persevering…

Begin Again

If you are taking the time to read this new post, let me be the first to tell you thank you. I appreciate you stopping by whether you are a new visitor or an old follower. Earlier this week I took the time to talk a little bit about my next 30 day journey to…

Take a Breath and Find Joy

Over the last few weeks, I have been leaning heavily towards relaxing, getting active, self-care, and a host of other things we should do if we want physical and emotional changes in our life. And while this may sound like an introduction as to why you should do yoga, it isn’t. There are so many…

Remember To Relax This Weekend

The weekend is upon us once again. And despite all the things that you have to do, whether it’s work or just looking after the kiddos, it can get a bit tiring. So this weekend I want to remind you to relax. Life tends to fly by with how busy we have become, there are…

Episode 5: Let’s Get Active

Hello! How are you doing today? For me yesterday was rough… Like with two f’s (yes, I know how it’s spelled but let me just have a moment). This week’s podcast is about getting out there and being active. As spring approaches and the pollen comes to make you cry, it’s important to remember that…

Check-In and Reminders

Wow! I’m tired! But this is regular for me. How are you doing today? I hope today has been a good day for you. I wanted to take a moment and check in with you. You see, you are important, maybe not in the world ending kind of way but in the daily interactions kind…

Episode 4: You are more than your activity tracker

I wonder how many times each day you look to see how much calories you have burned. Probably entirely too many times. Do you get up every few hours to get your steps in? I used to do that and it is good to be active all day. But there has to be a limit…

I stopped exercising and food tracking for a week

It’s another month of maybe meeting resolutions and self-doubt. Trying to change your body will indeed be an uphill battle, especially if you need to lose weight and have a disability. Since last year November, I started to really work out. I had the awakening that for an overall healthier life I will have to…
