Are You Getting Uncomfortable?

Today I finished up the book, You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero!  GREAT READ by the way.  I highly recommend it for a positive, uplifting, life boost!12002361_10100537085569860_6218415006216777796_oAnyway, there were sooooooo many take aways and I flagged them ALL!!IMG_4457I plan to turn many of them into inspirational quotes images for Pinterest.  Who else is obsessed with pinning quotes?!  Here is one I made today 🙂walk around with sunbeams shootingWell, there was a quote about getting uncomfortable that really struck me.  It struck me so much that I felt the urge to TALK about it rather than just WRITE about it.  So, here is a quick video of me blabbing about getting uncomfortable!  By the way, I originally made the video for and online health and fitness group I am running but it definitely pertains to everyone!  Also, be sure you are following me on Facebook to stay updated about all my online health, fitness, and wellness challenge groups!

Are you living in your comfort zone?  How do you plan to push yourself out of it?

Change Your Mindset

I have been reading sooooo many personal development books lately and I am pretty amazed at how I have taken back control of my thoughts!  Even just being more aware of what my brain tries to do to me is progress!  I am truly learning that with ANY big goals (health related or not) you HAVE to learn to change your mindset.

If you want to join me in my personal development reading you can!  I have a Facebook Group open for ANYONE!  I post regularly (most days) with chapters and reflection questions.  You can work at your own pace through the book!  Click here to get to the group – feel free to add yourself.  We are just about to finish up You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero and the next book up is Rising Strong by Brene BrownRising StrongFollowing the concept of “change your mindset”, I am also starting a group tomorrow (Monday, Oct. 26) called “Mind Over Matter”.  Here’s what it entails:

✔5-Days of “Mental Prep” to get you motivated and inspired
✔Daily journal activities to dig through some mental demons
✔Group atmosphere but private (share only if you’re comfortable)
✔See what these challenge groups are all about!
✔Finish the group feeling READY to reach your health/fitness goals!!

Email me at or send me a message on FB (are you following me – if not, click here). We start Monday so I need to know ASAP!  Oh, and you can actually jump into the group TODAY ONLY and view a video from me to see if it looks like something you want to do!  Click here to view the “Mind Over Matter” Group for a quick peek!

Your Health is Priceless

When I start something new, my motivation is high. I am ready to take on anything and invest in anything. Inevitably, the initial motivation wears off and self-doubt starts to creep in. Can I actually do it? Am I dedicated enough? Do I have the patience? Do I have the strength? Am I trying to reach for something that is out of my league? My excuses start to fill my head. I don’t have enough time. I don’t have enough energy. I don’t have enough money. I don’t have enough will power. I don’t want to do it anymore. Then I have to remember that without my health, I would have nothing. There is no amount of money or no length of time that is more valuable than that.  My health is priceless.  Your health is priceless.

Are you taking care of yourself or are you making excuses?

Badass Bookclub

Some of you know that I lead an online Badass Bookclub via Facebook that ANYONE can join.  We read personal development books to make us better/happier/healthier people!

Click here to find the group and feel free to add yourself!  Everyday I read a couple chapters and post my thoughts and favorite quotes that really resonate with me. I thought I would start sharing some of them publicly too! I won’t be sharing everything (you have to be our book club to get that), but I will share quotes that really hit me.

12002361_10100537085569860_6218415006216777796_oHere are today’s (all from the book You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero):

“…fear will always be there, poised and ready to wreak havoc, but we can choose whether we’re going to engage with it…”

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.”

>>>>This one also really hit home for me>>>> “We’re unwilling to make other people more uncomfortable than they just made us.”

“Never apologize for who you are. It lets the whole world down.”

When someone takes a leap of faith

I hope you join in the Badass Bookclub fun!

Push Yourself

Recently, I have had to push myself outside my comfort zone in sooooo many other areas of my life besides my physical fitness. It is scary. It is hard. It is unknown. It is exciting. It is emotionally exhausting. Some people understand and some people don’t. It WILL all make me a stronger person ultimately. Just like a challenging workout…it’s hard to take the first step, it’s exhausting while you are doing it, it’s still hard even after you’ve done it a few times, and some people will think you are crazy!


What are you doing to push yourself?  We can help push each other!  Find me on Facebook!

21 Day Holiday Squeeze Challenge


I WILL NOT endlessly eat this holiday season!! I WILL NOT endlessly eat this holiday season!! I WILL NOT endlessly eat this holiday season!!

I will squeeze in healthy habits every possible day between Thanksgiving and Christmas to stay on track (will I stay 100% on track every single day during the holidays? No. That’s unrealistic for me.)

But, I am excited to try a new program and keep the good things going! Who wants to do this 21 Day Holiday Squeeze Challenge with me? Email me at or find me on Facebook and message me if you are in or want more info!


Be good to yourself this holiday season and treat your body kindly!
