Change isn’t Sunshine and Roses…

What makes you think you are going to be able to change without pain?! I recently interacted with someone who quit. They quit on themselves. They quit on their family. They flat out quit on everything… What did they quit over? Being uncomfortable. They couldn’t handle taking responsibility for themselves. If you want to make […]

Motivation or Discipline??

Wow it’s been a long time since I’ve been able to write something positive… I hit a rough patch for a long, long time and I finally feel like I’m moving in a good direction again! A little catch up- I’ve moved to Colorado, finally!!! I’ve been working on this goal for a long time […]

Yeah, I get high…

Have you ever been addicted? Ever had something you think about 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and you’re so focused on it you’d be willing to give up money, time, and you’ll do anything to get your next fix? And when you get your fix it’s never enough?? Welcome to my world. […]

“Got 30 Seconds?!”

When you think it’s impossible, remember “I’m possible”! Imagine you’re in the most pain you’ve ever been in. Your body is completely busted and broke.

I hope you fail…

WHAT?! Why would I want you to fail?! “Persistence is the missing component to success.” No I’m not ruthless. No I don’t get a guilty pleasure out of the pain of others. No I don’t like to see the disappointment of others when they don’t reach their goals. No I don’t want to be better […]

So. It’s here… My 9 months of winter running has showed up early and now that 3AM alarm looks even worse to me… 32 degrees (Fahrenheit) wasn’t the funnest and definitely not when it’s the first week of September! Someone asked me how I stay motivated to keep getting up early and running in the […]

Daddy! Did you sell a car today?

Daddy! Did you sell a car today? Talk about accountability! This is the first question my boys ask when I get home from work. What’s the worst answer I can give them? No… Why? Because their next question is “why’d you go to work then?”. What if you asked yourself the same question about your […]

“IF” is a little word with a BIG meaning

Don’t forget- We are all beginners at some point. “Every champion was once a beginner that refused to give up.” “If” is a little word with a BIG meaning! My dad used to tell me this. Growing up I always had an excuse about something. Why I didn’t get my homework done, or why I […]

Where do I even start?!?!

So how do I get started? Here’s my advice for taking the first step toward better fitness and health. What’s your “WHY”? What do you REALLY want out of this? Do you want to be healthy, lose some weight or look great in a Speedo? Or do you want to have the energy to play […]
