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 the wayside.  I was … [Read more…]

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 challenge all of my … [Read more…]

Hello there, I’m Rochelle. I am a health and fitness enthusiast who, in the last 3 years, has completely remade my life.

Beloved gang o’ mine, we are nearly  1/4 of the way finished with 2013. Do you find that as insane as I do?

The sun is setting on another year. 2012 has been a year of ups and downs for me. Mentally, physically, big picture, little picture, ups and downs. I suppose it is like that for most people. On this New Year’s eve, I am reflecting on last years goals. How did I do? Did I hit my mark? Did … [Read more…]
