JAN 14: 2 Signs You Don’t Have Control Of Your Diet

I don’t know who we think we are fooling when we think we can get away with eating crappy food, or eating too much food, just because no one sees us doing it. Even if we eat with no one watching, and we throw away all the wrappers and the pizza box, there will still …

JAN 13: What Are You Still Doing Wrong?

Do you like to push the limits? I have to admit, I’m pretty conservative. If there is a sign that says “No U-Turn”, I don’t do a U-Turn. I don’t want to get in trouble and don’t like the stress that goes with breaking rules (and hoping you don’t get caught). With that said, I …

JAN 11: Ready to Fail, Committed to Succeed

If we can focus on progress more than perfection, we will be way ahead by the end of 2016. I don’t know about you, but I’m super hard on myself. If I can do something perfect, I get discouraged easily. That’s ridiculous! If I can’t do something just right, I need to keep working at …

JAN 9: Don’t Be Afraid To Aim Higher in ’16

There are 2 big mistakes people often make. They don’t aim for anything at all or they let past failures keep them from aiming higher than they should. Sadly, I believe past failure keeps people from even attempting to make New Year’s Resolutions or setting new goals. “If you aim at nothing”, as Zig Ziglar says, “you will …

JAN 6: You Are NOT a Failure

i'm not a failure

Many of us do not take failure well. We can have one argument with our spouse, or get one reprimand from our boss, and BAM! We feel like a big fat failure – as if we have officially failed at everything instead of just making one small mistake. Yesterday, I was sharing with my mom …

JAN 3: Take Control in 2016

One of the biggest problems Americans have is we lack self-control. We allow our feelings to control us instead of us working harder to control our feelings. Some people wake up and just decide they don’t feel like going to work, even though they are in debt up to their eyeballs. People get divorced because they …

JAN 2: Encouragement for Long Road Ahead


I don’t know about you, but when I have a really big task ahead of me, I procrastinate to tackle it. Some tasks can be overwhelming. And, if I feel like there is no way I can accomplish it, I might not even attempt it. How stupid is that? Isn’t it better to do something …

Jan 1: A NEW Plan for a NEW You this NEW Year

New Doesn’t Necessarily Mean Different We are starting a new year! Before I tackle today’s subject of setting fitness goals and getting ready to conquer this new year, I want to share some more personal stuff about myself, what I’m learning and what God is continuing to teach me. As I woke up eager to …

How to Have a Wiser, Healthier, Happier 2016

Why do many New Year’s Resolutions fade away? I believe it’s because they are based on emotion. We get emotional after the holidays. We “feel” fat. We spent too much money. We didn’t do everything we should, see everyone we could. We reflect on the year and realize another year has passed and we didn’t …

Twas the Day After Christmas, and Not a Creature Was Thin

‘Twas the day after Christmas and all through the house, Every creature was stirring, yes, even the mouse. The stockings, once hung by the chimney with care, Were being packed up and are no longer there. If only the children were nestled all snug in their beds, All the adults in the house wouldn’t be …
