I started going to spinning/cycling classes on and off at the beginning of this test to get ready for Iron Girl. To be honest I hated it at first! Who wants their butt to hurt for 3 days! My knees killed and to top it all off, compared to other men and women in my class who appeared to be…

Someone who I won’t mention dragged me out of bed and made me go to the gym this morning. It’s true, I haven’t been in over a week – partly because of my Colorado trip and partly because I have been sick. But, I didn’t want to go – I wanted to continue my day long journey on my couch. But, I…

I am on the cusp of being an empty nester! My youngest is a Senior in High School and most of this year has been the typical graduation photos, cap and gown, yearbooks, college applications and half days of school. When my daughter graduated a few years back, I was just as excited, but also sad. My babies were growing…

admin / November 11, 2017

I cannot say enough, setting a goal, writing it down, wanting to achieve something is powerful motivation. For me, it doesn’t matter what it is – big or small, when I see it written down, it makes me want to achieve it that much more. In my first post one of my goals were to be able to dead lift…
