Rock Bottom

    So if you can’t tell I seem to only be able to update this thing when I am feeling good/motivated. And If I am being honest, well it has been a while since I have felt either of those things.   The truth is it is easy to keep your fitness blog/social mediaContinue reading “Rock Bottom”

New Year new….

Anyone else feel like this? I know I do. As we enter a new year, I am feeling a mix of emotions. I feel excited for a “fresh start”. I feel hope for the future and the unknown. I feel thankful for my health, my friends, and my family. But I also can’t help butContinue reading “New Year new….”

No Days Off December and other things.

If you follow my Instagram at all (foreverlastingymclass) you may already know that I am doing a personal No Days Off December challenge. And if you don’t follow me and read this blog..why aren’t you!? Just kidding…. I had wanted to get things in gear back in the beginning of  November–but couldn’t really find the motivation. IContinue reading “No Days Off December and other things.”

On pity-parties, set-backs, and comebacks

In case you haven’t noticed, I have been quiet lately. My inspirational quotes have been sprinkled only sparingly, and there is a ton of extra room on my camera roll where my gym selfies would have been. A month ago, however, that was different. I was on top of the world. I had just finishedContinue reading “On pity-parties, set-backs, and comebacks”

I can’t 

  I can’t. I can’t exercise. I can’t get to a gym. I can’t do Crossfit- that’s for fit people. I can’t stick to healthy diet. I can’t run a 5k. I can’t finish a Spartan race. I can’t survive a Ragnar race. I can’t lift heavy weights. I can’t finish that workout. I can’tContinue reading “I can’t “

September Goals

September is a great month to begin a new. Summer is tough to stick to a plan with traveling, parties, and lots of celebrations. Although I am not an advocate for excuses, it is possible, but I am not going to deny it is difficult. As this summer comes to a close, I am full ofContinue reading “September Goals”

On “no scale November”, cheesecake, and starting over on Monday’s

It is Sunday evening, the very end of this long and fulfilling Thanksgiving weekend, and I find myself in bed eating a slice of caramel cheesecake. I never even liked cheesecake, and now all the sudden I cannot get enough. Why can’t this happen with something else, like Brussel sprouts? Okay, aside from the cheesecake, I’veContinue reading “On “no scale November”, cheesecake, and starting over on Monday’s”

Food for thought: Unhealthy Vs. Fat

So here’s a topic that bothers me. Being unhealthy vs. being fat. I’ve been overweight for most of my life. I’ve always been fat. Now, there’s no reason to sugar coat it. It just is. I’m not tall, I’m not skinny. I am short and I am fat. These are facts.  Being fat describes aContinue reading “Food for thought: Unhealthy Vs. Fat”

October Goals

Holyyyyyy.(Expletive) I can’t believe its October already. Seriously September came and went. Now that it is October there are only 3 more months until 2016. 2015 has been a pretty amazing year for me, but I still want to use up these next 3 months the best that I can. I’m not ready to throwContinue reading “October Goals”

A rant on hitting plateaus, losing focus, and lame excuses.

    Okay  the point of this blog was to hold myself accountable and to actually follow through with my goals. So it is time for me to fess up. It is easy to write this blog when things are good, and not so easy when I don’t have much good news to report. I dreaded writing this but IContinue reading “A rant on hitting plateaus, losing focus, and lame excuses.”
