I have been trying to eat healthier for awhile now. It’s often a struggle for me, but one of the main things for me is that what I do eat, whatever it is, HAS TO TASTE GOOD! I do not care for a protein shake that taste like a protein...Read More »
Six Weeks In – A Challenge of All Challenges
It’s been six weeks since we started the challenge and I haven’t weighed in once. Until last night.
I have been discouraged this whole challenge, feeling as thought I wasn’t making any progress. I kept screwing up with social engagements...Read More »
I walked into Healthease Nutrition’s downtown location on Wednesday night with my head hung low… averting eye contact with EJ as I walked in with all my equipment. I didn’t want to talk about the lack of progress I have...Read More »
Is there an art to making protein shakes? No, not really, but there are a few tips to make things a little easier, and maybe a bit more tasty. There is nothing worse than a runny/lumpy, protein powder tasting shake. You may be one of those people who can...Read More »
Everything about life is hard. I know, that sound so dramatic and dismal, but it has some truth to it.
I am a planner. Anyone who knows me knows that I live by my calendar and my lists. I love lists. But things don’t always go the way...Read More »
Isn’t Accountability Always the Challenge?
The Back On The Wagon Challenge has been challenging to say the least. Not only is it challenging in that I changed my diet, but it is challenging in that there is true accountability this time around. People are watching and rooting for you!

The Challenge Struggle Is Real
So, I have to be honest. I haven’t even downloaded my own food log yet. I haven’t really been keeping track of my calories. Why do I have such a mental block about it? Why do I struggle so hard to do the easiest...Read More »
90- Day Challenge – Or Longer?
Today, you are my mirror.
I am sharing some photos that I find rather embarrassing and praying that you aren’t too harsh on me. But why should I think you wouldn’t be? I am on myself. Why would I expect...Read More »
Is The Mirror Really the Challenge?
I hate your judgement.
I hate your self pity.
I hate your loathing.
I hate your excuses.
I will no longer use you as my guide for happiness. I will no longer use you to judge myself against others. I will no longer use you to...Read More »
Back On The Wagon Challenge
I’m nervous. It is Wednesday. That means it is the first weigh-in and measurement day for the Back On The Wagon Challenge for Healthease. I am not looking forward to it. BUT, I know it is the first step to making some positive...Read More »
And So the Challenge Begins

My Year In Running
I have to say my year in running was pretty epic for me. In many ways. Of course there were bumps and bruises (literally) along the way, but overall, I learned so much about myself as a runner. More importantly, I learned a lot about...Read More »
Back On The Wagon Challenge – A New You in 2017
It is almost here. 2017. I have to be honest and say I am not sad about 2016 leaving. I am relieved that there is a date in which I can “start over”. Sorta.
I...Read More »
Healthease Nutrition Challenge
I am so thankful at this very moment for the accountability January’s Healthease Nutrition Challenge is going to bring me. I have gone crazy with the holidays, eating whatever I want, throwing all caution to the wind. And I couldn’t feel...Read More »
Healthease Nutrition Challenge – Start Your Year Off Right!
“Back On The Wagon Challenge”
I haven’t been this excited about starving myself in a long time! Just kidding. After talking with EJ Fields at Healthease Nutrition in Frankfort, I have decided to...Read More »
Holiday Weight Gain
The dreaded holiday fear. Weight gain. We all worry about it. Parties, dinners and gifts. They all have the potential to being dangerous to our diets. How in the world does a real person, with a real life and a real goal stay on track? It’s...Read More »
So it has almost been three whole weeks since I benched myself from running. I had just come back from running the Chicago Marathon and plantar fasciitis showed up in my right foot. I had taken a couple days off after the marathon to regroup, and was supper...Read More »
What Kind of Marathon Calendar ?
I have learned a lot about myself over the last few months. Training for a marathon is no joke. It takes time, discipline, and dedication. Not only dedication to your running, but dedication to your other relationships and your other responsibilities. Wouldn’t it...Read More »
“Aw man, that sucks” is what we all think. “That would never happen to me.”
I am now addicted to my Fitbit. It didn’t take long. No, for me the Fitbit was a perfect, well, fit. I received a gift card for Christmas from a store that I normally buy next to nothing, so I went on the site and shopped around and stumbled upon...Read More »
So, I just realized the other day that running a marathon meant running almost 4 hours straight. I know! That sounds so crazy. My sister told me she couldn’t even fathom that amount of time constantly moving, let alone running. Does this make me crazy?
I sometimes question my sanity when...Read More »
It is really hard to share personal information. Especially online. You don’t want people to think you are stupid, silly, or even weak. I have always not cared about the silly or stupid part… but weak? Definitely not. I grew up with two brothers and a sister and have always...Read More »
My Work Out is A Love-Hate Relationship
So, I don’t love to work out. In fact, I dread it most of the time; but I love the results and I love working out my problems while I get a little sweat session in. I look forward...Read More »
Down Syndrome Close to My Heart
Call me weird, but I feel like I need to have a reason for doing most things. I mean, you have a reason for exercising: to get healthy. You have a reason for grocery shopping and cooking: to eat and nourish your body....Read More »
