This week I am practicing my 3Rs; relax, recharge and restart. Relax, make or become less tense or anxious. Recharge, restore an electric charge to by connecting it to a device that draws power from another source of electricity. Restart, start again.  A new start or beginning. Why this week […]

Toxic workplaces, aren’t worth it.

Diet. Dieting. Such a harsh word. I choose to call it a lifestyle. Food is of course important to life, duh!  But if there is anything I’ve learned having Lupus and being a competitor who has to cut weight, sometimes very drastically; eating the right things is key.  There are […]

Food. You can’t out exercise bad eating habits.

Yesterday I rode a bike. Yup, a bike. Might not seem like a big deal to most, but it’s been a long time since I’ve been on a bike.  Aside from the fear, the last time I rode I was in a lil accident; there is the lack of mobility.  […]

Deadlift. It does a body good!

Accept. Acceptance. Acceptance, a person’s assent to the reality of a situation, recognizing a process or condition (sometimes a negative or uncomfortable situation) without attempting to change it or protest it. Accepting the gift. Acceptance, approval of themselves to another. Acceptance, an act of believing or assenting. Today’s yoga practice […]

Why be moody when you can shake your booty! This was a great meme to see this afternoon, and before my leg day!  There is nothing like shaking your groove thing to shake off the day.  So much happens in our days that we need to shake off and let […]

Shake, Shake, Shake…. Shake your booty!

Secrecy. I’ve been watching WAY TOO MUCH Pretty Little Liars the last couple days. The main theme there is secrecy, each main character has at least one major secret that they are afraid to tell. Fear. Fear of people knowing, this is what binds them together as a group. The […]

It’s World Lupus Day! Share, Speak Up, and Stand ...

I’ve been a skinny fat. I’ve had issues with eating and weight control. I’ve been a cardio bunny, lifter and a mixture of both. I’ve been a competitor for a long time. I’ve competed in the 84+kg category, to the 84kg and cut to the 72kg. I’m no stranger to […]

Don’t be mean to your body, when it is so ...

Rest Day. Rest Days. Rest Weekends. Taking a rest Day always feels very wrong to me.  Like I am cheating on the gym with my couch, and that the case of lazies will destroy everything that I have put into my workouts.  It’s silly really, how can 1 day completely […]

We all need to rest… Rest DAYS are key to ...

As a great 2007 song taught us…. Ladies and gentleman of the class of 2007, wear sunscreen.  If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it.  The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proven by scientists. .. Whereas the rest of my advice […]

Being sick doesn’t give you a “get out exercise free ...
