You Can Suck – and Still Succeed

fitness failure

I apologize in advance for using such an informal edgy title, but “stink” didn’t cut it – and it didn’t rhyme with success. LOL As I was searching for synonyms for “suck”, I discovered where the word came from. Jazz musicians would compliment a horn player by saying “wow, he can really blow!” Since I play trumpet, …

Fitness Motivation: Ordinary People Do the Extraordinary

When we see photos of fitness competitors and professional athletes, it can be very motivating for some people – but very discouraging for others.

NPC Bikini Competition: 10 Reasons To Compete

If you told me 3 years ago that I’d compete and actually like it, I wouldn’t have believed you. I loathed the thought of competing. I didn’t just others for doing it, I just had no desire to do it myself. Steve always told me I should do it, but I honestly didn’t think I …

Love Fitness? Then #GetACECertified 

This blog is part of a sponsored ACE Fitness campaign. All of my opinions are my own. I worked at my first health club at the ripe young age of 18 in the late eighties (don’t judge the hair! lol). I knew nothing about fitness; I just thought it was cool. The club I worked …

Monday Motivation: It’s Time To Refocus

Are You Near Sighted? What if every decision you made was not based on how you feel now, but how you would feel later? I believe too many of us approach our life with a near sighted view. We only make decisions based on what we can see up close, because everything far away is …

What’s Your Next Step?

One Step At A Time

Sometimes we can get SO focused on the goal, we get PARALYZED with being overwhelmed. Whether we are thinking about how much further to go or how impossible the journey seems, it doesn’t change what we could do to today by just doing what we can. Sometimes, our goal isn’t even being thinner, fitter, stronger or faster. …
