Starting a new journey

Starting a new journey
I am indeed starting on a journey.  This journey is different than any I ’ ve taken before.  My journey is about developing an acceptance, love and appreciation for my body through hard work that is not attached to appearance.  This is different than your typical “ eat well and exercise ” regimen.  While the work is physical, it's much more than that. It ’ s mental and emotional, and I ’ m finally ready to tackle it! In my last post  I talked about how much I was equating my self-worth with my appearance and was beginni...

Separating Self Worth and Appearance

Separating Self Worth and Appearance
Everyday is a fight to recognize my own worth aside from how I look.  I can't tell you exactly what has caused me to feel this way, though I have my suspicions .  I remember being very young, like 7 or 8 yrs. old, when I first started worrying about how others saw me physically.  Did they think I was cute enough?  Was I strong enough to hang out with the boys?  Were my clothes "cool" enough that the girls would want to be my friend?  I remember wondering if I should "diet" in order to look more like the other 3rd a...

How are you WINNING?

How are you WINNING?
We all have opportunities in life to win…and for most of us, those opportunities rarely involve an actual finish line.  In fact, your personal victories may go completely unnoticed by everyone around you.  Some of these are small and can be “won” daily, like earning all your habit points (fruits and veggies, exercise, water, etc.) and some have to be earned with much work and dedication, like being able to bench press your own body weight, do an unassisted pull up, run a 5K without walking or reaching and maintaining your goal weight....

I'm tired, but I'm not SICK and tired

I'm tired, but I'm not SICK and tired
On Saturday, Valerie and I were on a long run when we found ourselves in complain mode;  "My knees hurt.  I'm getting old.  I'm so tired.  I wish the compression pants could compress EVERYTHING and not just squeeze it up and above the waist band.  Are we done yet?"  Then I had a thought, well more of a mental image really.  THIS mental image. This photo is from the very first 5K race (3.1 mi) that we participated in.  We were both a good 30 - 40 lbs heavier than we are today.  It took everything in m...
