Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s time to confess! And what a good time to do it, for some of us who celebrate, it’s Lent! So confess away! I’ll start it off.

In poring over the fact that this weight-loss game is a battle of choices and consistency I thought maybe we could help a sister out. And vice versa. Because it’s not day by day or week by week. This thang is MOMENT BY FREAKIN MOMENT. Which door do I choose? I say that because in all … [Read more…]

Hello, friends! It’s time to wrap up our February project which was to send our bodies into failure! (In a good way!) Did you do it again this week? Have you done it every week? How? How did you feel? Did you want to go back for more? Are you glad you pushed yourself (more importantly will you … [Read more…]

(If you’ve filled in the blank already with a word in your mind, keep that, hold onto it, we’ll get to it in a minute. Mkay?) I spend half my life apologizing for myself. I catch myself doing it all the time. I’m going slower than my running partner and I say something like, “I’m sorry, I”m … [Read more…]

Head on over to the scale and find out how many numbers that scale is willing to give up for you this week! And we hope the scale’s being kind, … [Read more…]

I wish I could explain how I sent my body into fail mode this week but I tried to picture how I would write it and it sounded a little vulgar. Did you reach body failure this week? For me, this week it was “ab” failure. Ab failure resulting in full body failure. All in a good way, of … [Read more…]

Good morning Power of One’ers! It’s that time of the week, the one where we tiptoe over to the scale, gently nudge it so as to not disturb the beast and then ease ourselves onto it so that it gives us a happy, wonderful number in return. So head on over to your scale and check in with your … [Read more…]

This month we’re back to our normal regularly scheduled programming where the projects are monthly and all is right with the world! This one is fun because you can do it this week and use the rest of the month to build on it. It’s also great for those of you who are doing Couch to 5K, it fits … [Read more…]

I am standing in center field. The dew of a day that is ending is all around me. The lights are on, it is almost dark. I smell the clay, the wet grass in the field. There is a light breeze. There is a very large man up at bat and I know he is about to hit the ball to me. There is no way he … [Read more…]

So, how did we do this week? Are you becoming your own CEO of your life?? I have to say, it took me days and a lot of inward searching to figure out how I was going to break out of my own rut here and move forward and be MY CEO. Here is the original post if you missed it. We are in the final … [Read more…]

Yes, hi, I’d like the meat that’s not really meat on a bun and the meat that’s not really meat in a tortilla with a side of rectangle shaped pepperoni pizza with those little pepperoni nuggets that look like pepperoni but I’m not really sure if they are, please? If you were ever looking for a … [Read more…]

NOW, it’s time for another project! It’s time to put your “goal” project to work! Part One: You have … [Read more…]
