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 “

Weekend Warrior

As I often take Monday’s to reflect on the weekend..since its a pretty common Monday morning question at the office, I’ve realized my responses are changing. Typically I would spend Sunday’s as a day of regret, and marking Monday as my day of retaliation against the weekend, back to the grind, and renewal of promisesContinue reading “Weekend Warrior”

Failure to plan is planning to fail…

My biggest issue lately has been failing to plan… my meals. Therefore, I am going hungry which is not a good thing. Because nothing good comes from being haaangry. I don’t prepare for the day or week, then when I’m hungry I don’t have anything I am “allowing’ myself or choosing to eat so IContinue reading “Failure to plan is planning to fail…”

Happy Birthday ____(Insert every name here_!)

(My niece Clara on her 1st birthday & 1st time eating sweets) Another obstacle I find myself eternally battling is surviving family functions while trying to continue clean eating. I always say being Italian is both a blessing and a curse. A blessing of course to have a close knit, loving, large and supporting family. The curse, isContinue reading “Happy Birthday ____(Insert every name here_!)”
