So often, we intoxicate our body with mean thoughts.  

“I’m fat.  I can’t do this.  I can’t eat that healthy.  I will never get to my goal weight.  I hate working out.  My whole family is overweight, so I probably will be the same way.

But the truth is…. you can be anything and do anything.  And it starts with your brain!  Fix your thoughts, change your body!


I don’t work out every day,

but I try to be active everyday.  I’m so happy that I’ve gotten back in the habit of sharing my workouts & photos on my blog.  It’s nice to see motivational photos of extremely fit athletes, but what’s more motivating than seeing a cool Southern girl go from obese —> healthy normal —> Super FIT??!  Nada lada.

Today, I set out for a 5-6 mile run.  

I ended up only running 3.1 miles.  For some reason, the sun, humidity, and 80 degree heat decided to show up 3 months too early in Texas today.  I was just not ready for the sun bearing down on me. I even had to stop and stand in the shade for 4 minutes to prevent overheating.  But I pulled out the 3.1 miles in 28:08.


After my run, I took my little sister out for an adventure.  We really didn’t know where we were going.  We just took off running and walking.

I’ve already told her when she turns 18, she’s doing a half-marathon with me.

We climbed trees.

And Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet.

Ha ha!



Today was such a good day.  

After all the blog support today, talking to my big sister, and having a killer workout.  I was the happiest I’ve been in months.  I even have my appetite back.  I felt a giddy feeling of hope and excitement!

Workout: Mile sprints, walking/talking with my mom, and medicine ball exercises.



The best thing you can do for yourself is care for your health.  Sure, it’s fine in small doses, sporadically.  But alcohol is dehydrating and toxic.  Plus, I don’t know many girls with abs who drink tons of booze.  

Cheers to health! … and abs!


I will admit to not wearing panties

when I run sometimes.  Isn’t that what the little built in undies on the Nike Tempo Shorts are for anyways???

Probably not wearing underwear here.

But when I do wear underwear, it’s never a thong! (Did you even know they make workout thongs?!  Wowza.)  It’s always a cotton fabric. And usually has a pretty noticeable panty line.

When it comes to running, I choose comfort over a perfectly shaped bum.

A very obvious pantyline, which makes no difference to me!

Girls.  Guys!  Which do you prefer wearing/seeing?  Panty lines or no panty lines when working out?


Felt so good.
