Transformation Is More Than Physical

I shared this #TransformationTuesday on my Instagram page this last week, but I know not everyone follows me there so I also wanted to share it here. There’s 14 years between these 2 photos. External proof that you should #LiftTheHeavyThings. However, the internal transformation, the mindset shift, and the personal growth that has occurred between…

Thoughts on Sharing Your Story

  I love this quote. Brené Brown is the master of all things #RadicalResponsibility. It did get me thinking though… (Are you surprised? 🤣) Owning our full experience and sharing our full story is not merely about our own healing, it is also about helping others walk through their own similar journeys. With the Lord’s help, we…

Willpower

  Willpower gets praised far more than I think it should. Why? Because it requires us to work against ourselves. Living a healthy lifestyle does not require you to be miserable. It does, however, require you to do a bit of investigative work and to persist through some trial and error in order to find…

Re-framing Things + My Audible Library

For the last 4.5 years, I have commuted 1 hour each way to work (5 days a week). I have a love-hate relationship with my work commute… As an introvert* personality type, I love the alone time. As someone with limited free time, I hate the extra 2 hours it steals from my day. Looking…

No Excuses EMOM Workout

If you aren’t familiar with the term, EMOM = Every Minute On the Minute. This means you set a timer and perform a given number of reps at the start of the minute, then rest again until the top of the minute and repeat. The reason I call it “No Excuses” is because you don’t…

Lessons From Coins
