Staying Motivated When Life Gets in the Way

Goals, Long and Short Term

Today is January 4th and I’m wondering how your goals for 2014 are going so far? We need to have both long and short term goals; things we want want to accomplish in the “here and now” and things to accomplish over time. You can’t go somewhere if you don’t know where you are going, […]

Resolutions or SMART goals?

Here we are 3 days into 2014.  How are you doing on those New Year’s Resolutions you set just a few short days ago? Do you even make New Year’s Resolutions?  Here’s a news flash for you – I don’t.  I think it’s silly to make vague promises to oneself that will probably go by […]

This Year, I Accomplished:

So every week, we create posts tailored to our wonderful Sisterhood readers…AKA all of you! The truth is, without our wonderful followers, there would be no SJ community. Well, there might be, but it would be A LOT smaller. We’ve touched on running, weights, diet, giveaways, recipes, staying on track, falling off the wagon, nutrition, […]

Goals are Important

This weekend has been crazy busy and I’m sure I’m not alone in this. This past week we (meaning my 9 year old son and I) started back with our new fall schedule; including 4 karate classes, 3 co-op classes, a full week of school, exercising and a weekend of Komen 3-Day training (walking 10 […]

Time to Refocus!

Time to Refocus!

I’ve been making excuses for the past couple of months…and I’m DONE with a capital D.O.N.E with those excuses! **I’ve been doing so good….it’s ok to relax a little. REALITY: No, it’s not ok to relax a little when that relaxing leads to drinking gallons of coke and barely any water! **It’s too hot outside […]

My friend Tiffany asked a question on Facebook the other day. I loved it so much, I asked her if I could use it here. She said, “Absolutely!” Here is what she said….. “In thinking this morning, I remember how easy it is to focus too much on that darn number on the scale. I […]

Goodbye, comfort zone

Beloved gang o’ mine, we are nearly  1/4 of the way finished with 2013. Do you find that as insane as I do? We have talked a lot about goals since the confetti and glittering ball drops of New Years Eve.  I hope you have found enough successes to keep your mojo tank on “F” […]
