I’ll show you my True Colors…

I started writing this blog a few weeks ago, but I stopped. It’s not easy to write a about an eating disorder. Especially when many that are close to you don’t know about it. So, here it goes…. I had an eating disorder and it began when I was 14yrs old,  and many years later…

Life is simply an invitation…

“To me life is simply an invitation to live.” – Sean O’Casey My 2 weeks off was amazing, but I am ready to get back to work. It was wonderful being able to take a mini vacay with my daughter and visit my brother, hit South Padre Island and have fun. I cleaned house, did much laundry and worked…

Murph Monday

Today, May 30, 2016, I accomplished something I never thought of doing. I completed my very first HALF Murph WOD. Though doing the FULL Murph WOD would have been a good idea, I had to pace myself mentally and physically first. 800M 50 Pull Ups (I scaled to Ring Rows) 100 Push Ups 150 Squats…

It was a MM…Motivational Monday.

This was posted on Facebook back on May 23, 2016. It’s not a TBT or a FBF, but an MM aka Motivational Monday! A year ago today is when I began to buckle down and start working out. I started Crossfit with my cousins Rick and Jennifer and I was hooked. Yes, there have been…

Never judge someone who is trying…

Being committed to being healthy and being fit are such a huge struggle for me. I am my worse enemy, but when someone else judges me for the things I cannot do, it makes me just want to crawl back into my hole and never try again. Ok…that is who I use to be! For…

Beer drinking and such…

Sunday’s are always full of adventure. The husband and I hang out a several places, soaking up some great patio time and drinking some great beer from Houston’s local breweries. It’s late afternoon and we decided to end our evening at Axelrad on Alabama and LaBranch. This place is full of fun! Live Music, food…

fitness….lack of!

Yes, the lack of fitness has hit my soul and more so my body! The self motivation has become obsolete and well…..actually non-existant. I am in denial and I have no self control. But that is all about to change! I must work of myself, on my self-esteem, on my health and on my soul….

My Man is Better than Yours…

“My man is better than yours”….. This came up in a conversation I was having with a friend and she mentioned to me that she sees so many #mymanisbetterthanyours when it comes to women referring to their husbands, fiances or boyfriends. She asked me my thoughts and if I ever used it. I told her…

Today’s “grey”forecast…..

Gorgeous day in Houston this week. The sun has been shining, the air is crisp and cold. There is no sight of a grey cloud… then this happens. Conversation begins with a simple, Happy Birthday. Female – Person 1: “Wow, you don’t look like your ?? yrs old. You look way younger.” Male – Person…

End of the year….

I know, everyone is writing “end of the year” blogs about their 2015 memories. The accomplishments, the mishaps, the what-if’s and the what-nots. I won’t write about 2015, I will write about 2016. 2016 is going to be filled with much joy, lots of love and plenty of letting go. The joy will come from the…

I am back at it!

Head cold is GONE!!! I am so thankful that the nasty head cold as left me. It was a miserable two weeks. Though the cough is still there, I am good to workout. Saturday I did a 15 AMRAP that consisted of burpees, sit-ups, lunges, and squats….IT WAS BRUTAL! I got is done and I…

Trying harder……

It’s been a very difficult past week with this head cold. I haven’t been to a Crossfit class in a week and I am feeling really sluggish right now. My motivation has gone out the door and I am hating myself every minute. Work has been stressful and I just feel as if I am…
