Week 7 Day 42 So I have been traveling and found it is very difficult to stay focused on working out and making the best healthiest food choices.  It is especially difficult for me to do so when I am feeling stressed out and when I have an “episode” due to my PTSD.  I had […]

Week 6 Day 35 Just this past Thursday night I started on a road trip, but not before I went to one more Cardio Kickboxing class.  I was pushing myself and my coach, Rico, was really good about encouraging me and at times pushing me when he would see me struggling.  I pushed myself to […]

I will be the first one to say that eating healthy is a lifestyle change and honestly it’s harder then most people think. However, meal prepping and keeping successful recipes in a binder can help on those days when bad food is calling your name. There are lots of vegetables that you can use in […]

Week 5 Day 28 This has been a difficult week for me.  I got sick over the weekend and my stomach was not feeling so well.  It was like it was doing turns and flips.  I had to take a break over the weekend and rest.  I know I needed it, but now I am […]

June is the National Month of Fruits & Veggies!  Who knew there was an entire month dedicated to fruits and vegetables.  What are some ways we can add fruits and veggies to our daily meals? My suggestions to eat more fruits and vegetables are to 1) add a larger portion to our meals of fruits […]

Competing with Myself: 90 Day Challenger
