Reflecting on 2013 and looking to 2014



I thought this quote was prefect for summing up how we should live our life (or at least how I want to live my life). I love having experiences, meeting people and of course working out HARD! Material things are not important to me (unless its a new snowboard, bike or running shoes 🙂 ) As far a this year went, starting your own business is hard but I have never been happier. I love that we live in a country that you can follow your dreams and I love that I have a husband and friends that believe in me and my vision. I see only good positive things happening in the year to come (love even numbers). 



Surviving Thanksgiving – Operation Weight Loss – Week 4 of 15


One holiday down, two to go. The average American gains 1-2 pounds during the holidays, I’m happy to report that I lost .6 lbs during Thanksgiving week! The hardest thing to do is make yourself get on the scale after a holiday week, but it must be done! Getting on the scale once a week keeps you in check and lets you know if you need to make any adjustments to your program.

If I’m being honest the only thing that saved me from gaining weight this week was working out every days. I worked out hard too, getting my heart rate up and making sure that I got my “sweat-on”. Today I’m back to writing down everything that I eat and eating smaller portions. Goal is to lose at least 1 lb this week.
