26 Days Later

It's rare that I choose a fitness program and follow it day-for-day. I like to do my own fitness routines, do what I feel like doing. Use the variety of workout equipment I have at my disposal. But I started the new 80 Day Obsession routine on Beachbody On Demand. Every morning during the work [...]

Coping

In the middle of the night on Friday, a beloved family member passed away. He was 44 and had so much spirit and amazing sense of humor. I'm 30, and this is the first time in my life that I've lost someone close to me. I've been trying to navigate everything I'm thinking and feeling, [...]

Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

Typical for me, lately I've been doing great with my workouts, but not so great with my eating and drinking habits. I start out great in the first half of the day, but by the end of it, I want a drink and something deep fried. But the weight loss continues, slowly but surely. That's [...]
