I usually blog about what I have experienced. Today I am blogging blind - I am yet to change my outlook on working out. For me workouts are a form of medicine - therapy for my body and mind. You don't have to like it, you just have to do it. ... Read more

Day 30

It's day 30 and I am still here. The reward I reap is this rhythm of consistent work outs that give me so much more than the promise of reaching my weight loss goal. Those endorphins spring me into work, keep my mood stable, actually decrease ... Read more

16 days in and I have to be honest - I still feel like the proof of the pudding will have to be in the eating. It sounds harsh but I have been here before so many times that it is hard to believe that this time will be any different. The only t... Read more

Bittersweet. Real. Slow change. Progress. Setbacks. Celebrations. Courage. Strength. Fear. Vulnerabilities. Support. Disillusionment. Encouraged. Mis-understood. Not understood. Still here :) Sometimes, I search for the right word to present a... Read more
