My 5 year journey to my WHY!

It has taken several years to finally get my WHY. It is not what I originally thought it was. It was a journey down a curvy path before it all started becoming crystal clear. I did not start my journey with Simon Sinek’s book titled, “Start with Why”. I read it along the way but […]

Slay Your Dragon

Recently, I had the privilege of helping Katherine Wintsch during a book signing event in Springfield, VA. She is a lovely person that I am thrilled to have met. Her message is enlightening and empowering. I was intrigued when I learned we had something in common. Different circumstances but when life knocked us down we […]

Talk To Yourself

Daily affirmations….do you do them? I believe they help us grow as a person, build confidence, develop courage, achieve goals and feel good. I also believe what you put out to the universe comes back to you whether it be positive or negative. I find that when I talk positive to myself via reading daily […]

On A Mission Monday

We have an opportunity to make a dent in obesity in America. Do you know that ~200 million Americans are overweight or obese? I know this because I am one of them. I went from 17% BMI to over 30% BMI. It didn’t happen over night, it was a slow creep process that happened over […]

Healthy Hump Day

Weight Watchers, Body for Life, South Beach, 3 Day Diet, Green Smoothie Diet, Slim Fast, Hot Hips & Fabulous Thighs, The Cabbage Soup Diet, 21 Day Day Fix, 2B Mindset… these are all of the “diet programs” I have tried over the years. They all worked! Until I stopped. Has this happened to you? To […]

Take Action Tuesday

A key take away from the motivational conference I attended over the weekend was from Rachel Hollis, “Applied Knowledge is Power”. That means when you apply what you know (or recently learned) you have the power to achieve your goals. The applied part is taking the necessary action, one step, one goal, one milestone at […]

Make It Happen Mindset

I went, I saw, I learned –now I have to put it into Action. A few things about me, I am a visionary, I think with the end in mind, I believe if I can envision it I can make it happen, I thrive on mapping/planning out the details ~ however, in some areas of […]

So Inspired Sunday!

Friends, I am just returning from an amazingly fruitful and rewarding experience. First, let me tell you that I was very apprehensive to go to this event of 20,000 people I only know via social media solo. I was motivated to go because I wanted to hear Rachel Hollis keynote and I wanted to push […]

Fitness Friday

How do you feel Physically? Mentally? Emotionally? Spiritually? These are all connected and affect how we feel. In February I was mortified when I stepped on the scale and saw a number that I hadn’t seen since I was pregnant. I couldn’t believe my weight had crept up like that. It affected me in several […]

Thankful Thursday

I am truly thankful each day I wake up. Each day is a fresh start and with the positive mindset the opportunities are endless. I have heard of a “Gratitude” journal but haven’t started one. I will do some research and possibly add “writing in a gratitude journal” to my list of things I would […]
