Welcoming In The New Year

As we close the door of 2017 and peer into what 2018 might hold for us, I can’t help but to feel excitement! 2017 ended with goals met and some just out of reach, but that’s what a new year is for, right? When I’m ready to make a plan and create goals, I find it best if I imagine them to be tangible thoughts. I picture myself at my goal weight or being able to lift a certain amount or being able to walk into a store and not worry about “if they have my size”. Then once my goals manifest as tangible thoughts, I run like hell to catch them! Create visuals that ignite your soul and don’t stop for anything until you have it in your...

It’s only a recent discovery of mine that fitness is 100% mind over matter. The times I’m able to block out my mind from spewing comments of self doubt or thinking that this is “too hard”, that’s when I SOAR! That’s when I am free and I let my body do all the work. I encourage you to begin to block your mind when it comes to fitness and let your body speak up. Your body will tell you when you’ve had enough…and I’m willing to bet you’ll go further, harder and longer than your mind once...

I Dreamed A Dream…Into A Goal

How many “dreams” do you have? A dream that one day you will… Dreams are the first step in the goal setting process. You have to first DREAM about a change. Once you make it into a GOAL, that’s when things happen. Now you start planning. Start plotting. Start adding or subtracting things from your life. Goals are what you have when you are determined to make your dream a reality. Its not impossible, it just takes a little elbow grease to turn that DREAM into a GOAL. ✨...
