I’m Standing in the Ashes of Who I Used To Be

If you are looking for me I will be walking around aimlessly with a smirk on my face. Most of you probably haven’t seen or heard much from in the past little while. This week marks the end of what feels like a very long learning journey. At the age of 49 years old, IContinue reading “I’m Standing in the Ashes of Who I Used To Be”

What Defines Failure?

How do I define failure? I have been reflecting on this question a lot lately. The past several months has been less than awesome for me. I have shared a bit here about some of the things going on in my life and some I haven’t. As I have mentioned in a previous blog myContinue reading “What Defines Failure?”

Let Nothing Stop You!

Stress can be a real buzz kill. For me, when I am stressed it really impacts my ability to make sound choices. The past few weeks have been a good reminder that we are never bullet proof.

#TransformationTuesday 2.0

A transformation is so much more than losing weight. I didn’t understand what I was doing when I started my journey but my transformation is so much more than just losing weight.

Hello Onderland!

Today I said goodbye to the 200’s.  I still remember the weigh in last summer that I said goodbye to the 300’s and hello to the 200’s. I wish I had started blogging at that point, it would be nice to have that now to look back on and reflect on how far I haveContinue reading “Hello Onderland!”

First Run for 2015

This year I decided to approach my running differently, rather than “sort of training” then just entering events with the expectation that I will be able to just go out and run a 5km, I joinedContinue reading “First Run for 2015”
