So what do I do next?


I wanted to write this post because one of the questions I get e-mailed about the most is...what did you do when you finished the 24 Day Challenge?  When I answer this question I normally start by asking what the person's goals are now that they have kick started their weight loss.  Do they want to lose more weight, more inches, gain muscle, increase their endurance, see more muscle ...

24 day challenge results

I can remember this exact time last year so well.  I was struggling with my weight and making every excuse imaginable for why all those extra pounds were sticking to me from both pregnancies.  I thought I was eating healthy, I was counting calories, I was going to the gym when I had time...but it just HAD to be that my metabolism changed.  I couldn't think of any other reason why nothing was ...

Long Beach Half-Marathon Recap

Long Beach half 2013

Let's start this Monday off with some pure awesomeness, what do you think?  First of all....IT'S FALL, officially!  The temps have dropped,  it's been nice and cloudy, the spicy and warm scented candles have been lit, and I've caught the decorating bug.  I couldn't be happier about all of this...all I need now are some leggings, boots, a sweater, a scarf and a pumpkin spiced latte in my hand.  I ...
