New Year’s Resolutions

Happy New Year! Can you believe the end of the first week in January 2017 is already here? Time seems to be going quicker with each year that passes. Yet I absolutely love New Year’s Eve.

I like to stay up late writing my New Year’s resolutions and ring in the New Year watching the ball drop then fall asleep to the hope of good changes to come and the ability that I can accomplish anything I set my mind to.

My Secret How To Maintain Weight Loss During The Holidays

If it’s one thing I’ve learned these past couple years it’s that being healthy is a journey with no ending destination.

I have been the same weight since this past April. I lost all my tone and muscle definition with my foot injury but I’m wearing the same clothes and the scale has the same number on it.

I’ll never lose this weight.

Why try if I can’t do it?

Just because it worked for them doesn’t mean it’ll work for me.

They don’t understand my life, my injuries, or how badly I need that ice cream.

I’ve tried everything. Why put myself through this again?

No matter what I do I gain weight.

I’m too old for this.

I’ll start tomorrow.

It didn’t work before. Why would it work for me now?

Have you had these thoughts? I have and many, many others over the years. The guilt and shame I placed on myself was immeasurable. The constant stream of negative self-talk that no one…

New Hashtag!


I feel like I need to clap for myself and begin a round of applause. Welcome back Briana to! It has been an interesting summer for me. I’m doing so well! Thank you everyone who reached out lately and asked me how I’m doing. I’ve really appreciated it.

Long story short, a couple months ago I created a HUGE list of how I wanted to grow this summer and what I wanted to accomplish.

I didn’t get any of it done.

As you can see, I’ve been inconsistent with my blogging this…
