The Best Journal You’ll Ever Keep

April 30, 2013


Have you heard of Oprah’s gratitude journal? Where every day she enters 5 things she’s grateful for that day? Well, this isn’t that, but it’s in the same vein. At the end of each day, take just a few minutes to reflect and ask yourself; What did I enjoy today the most? What would I […]

Todays 1lb Success

April 11, 2013


After six months of winter, diets that I thought hard about starting, an increasing dislike for wearing pants, and the same old frustration with that bastard scale not giving-in with a single notion of weakness or sign that it might move at all….

June 8, 2010


What an amazing week. Following last weeks stellar training performances, I spent a bit of time crusin’ through a bunch of different blogs that I like to follow. Through one of these, I found a link to an inspiring post-race, race report from an obviously talented long course triathlete. Seeing as my theme of the […]

What makes you awesome?

So remember my post about celebrating successes? How I decided that I needed to get back to a place where every little achievement should be celebrated for the success that it is? People have shared their successes with me since then and I LOVE hearing them. From throwing punches in the air at the top […]
