Closing Out 2017 Monthly Challenge

  One of the greatest ways to keep going through the holidays is through mini goals.  I think the holidays and fitness seem like two subjects that get separated often.  They do not have to be though!  A little bit each day and mentally you know that you have held strong with putting in an […]

Motivation Helpers

Sticking to a program or journey is HARD!  There’s no instant gratification.  There’s no one standing there to give you a medal when you step on the scale.  There’s no celebration unless you do it for yourself!  Over the course of the last five years, I have done a handful of things to increase my motivation.
