Last Long Run & Finding My Strong

Race Day Motto

Here I sit and type, one week out from my second full marathon.  I have completed my last long run for this training cycle and now I am finding my strong.  I am super excited to be running the LA Marathon with thousands of other amazing athletes.  I have followed my training plan, put in the miles, and my body is now resting and ready to run the race set out before me. The week leading up to the race has me all sorts of mental and second guessing my ability to run a strong race.  I know I am fully capable of running a Continue Reading

Keep Moving Forward

Happy Monday friends!  I wanted to share a quick motivational quote and image in remembrance and celebration of Martin Luther King Day.  I love this quote from him, “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward!” When times get hard.  When life throws curve balls your direction.  When you are tired.  Keep moving forward.  Never give up!  Have a productive, active, healthy week!

Is there something that you have been dreaming of attaining or achieving?  Is there a goal in your business or relationship?  How about in your weight loss and fitness journey?  In order to have success with your goals… you must put in the work.  Often times it requires a lot of hard work! Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.  We all make our mistakes and hopefully learn from them.  But we must dust ourselves off and start over… start again… start today. I would love to help YOU on Continue Reading

Actions Speak Louder Than Words

2013-08-19-21.46.32.jpg

As a mom, I have learned that my actions speak much louder than my words.  I need to lead by example.  Because more often than not my words get lost in translation (Mommy’s language doesn’t translate well into whinese). While finishing up my strength circuit yesterday, I noticed three little dudes watching me intently.  Asking about the move I was doing: planks.  And why it was important that I do them.  Then moments later they each were on the ground next to me challenging who could hold the plank the longest.  I won.  Today. Planks are Continue Reading
