Are You Too Desperate For the Weekend?

Love Monday through Friday

I've been thinking about this a lot lately and I just don't think it's good to feel so desperate for the weekend! Shouldn't our Monday through Friday be great enough that by the time the weekend hits it's just a time to get things done before starting up the work week again? I'm definitely guilty of counting down every moment leading up to the weekend these days. I feel like Friday can't . . . Continue Reading »

Spring 2013 Bucket List

spring 2013 bucket list

So I'm a little calendar obsessed, always have been! I use to search high and low for the perfect day planner when I was in college, using it to map out my daily, weekly, and months commitments. I'd think far into the future, planning out things I'd want to do in various semesters.  Not that this has changed at all, but it really started in college when my life was more my own. After college I . . . Continue Reading »

March 2013 Goals

I'm really excited to be starting a new month and to be moving into March. Spring is right around the corner and for the first time in a long time I'm feeling in control of my diet and exercise. It's hard to believe that my first football game with the DC Divas is a little more than a month away, so I know I have a lot to grow in and work on this month. It has been a great year so far and . . . Continue Reading »

February 2013 Goals

Last night while on Facebook I came across a photo of a person I knew back in college.  I was rather taken aback when I first saw the photo because the person looked so different from when I last saw them. Back in college I idolized this person because they had lost 70+ pounds on Weight Watchers and maintained that weight loss for years.  The photo yesterday made me cry because they had gained b . . .

Be a True Fitness Partner

Reebok Fitness Partners

Since moving in together and getting married, Neal and I have had to learn how important it is to be a true fitness partner. I asked Neal what it means to be a fitness partner and what kind of support he needs to be successful and this was his response. "Being a fitness partner, to me, means we may not do the same exercises, but we motivate each other to get after it and improve every . . . Continue Reading »
