Holy Moly!!!

I am going to be so sore tomorrow if not Thursday.  Just in time for another training session.  DOMS gotta love it.  NOT.

I did a strength workout this morning, say around 630a, then had managed to get to the gym for a 10a training.  Total body workout.  Legs are Jell-O.  Arms I can not lift.  And sneezing?  Oh the abs.

Nutrition was on point today.  I only had 2 small snack sized Hersey Bars.  Go Me.  I can usually eat like about 6 or 8.  So good.  LOVE chocolate.

Just a quick update as I am now heading to bed.  Getting up at 430a is finally catching up with me.  Will catch everyone up tomorrow

When you meet someone for the first time


I meet someone for the first time after talking to her online.  The reason we started talking really has nothing to do with anything but she was looking for a ride.  We spoke via Facebook messenger, for about an hour.  I went to her profile to check it out.  She seems nice enough.

She goes to my profile, sends me a friend request, goes to my business page, looks over it and tells me we have OH SO MUCH IN COMON.  Looks through my photos, my posts, reads my intro., etc …

Then she starts telling me what I should do with my page, what I should post, how I should post, etc ….  Mind you we are in the same business.  We have had different training.  I do my thing and she does hers.  We do this differently.

So after all this messaging back and forth I decided I would be nice and give her a ride to the conference we were attending.  She is not far from me so I thought we could meet in a public area.   Hey!  I don’t know her from Joe Blow.  So we meet at a gas station.  She leaves her car and we head to the conference.

We weren’t in the car but 5 minutes an she says to me “You’re not a small as I thought you were.  You’re not as small as your picture”  :: mind blown ::  I’m sorry but WTF??  REALLY?  Did those words just come out of your mouth?!  She is VERY forward and blunt.

I ignored it but still.  Was I hurt?  Hell yeah.  Was I taken back?  Fuck yeah.  Like really?  Not like I don’t already know I have some weight to lose and that I have to get back to working out but REALLY lady?  I just met you …. LITERALLY!!!  Not even 10 minutes ago.

I could have said something but why bother?  I would only just irritate myself more and if I kept going I might have pushed her out the door.  I do let things fester.  I do hold grudges.  I did  let it go though.  I figured we weren’t going to be best of friends nor would I see her on daily basis so I thought I might as well just drop it.  So I just let her talk and talk she did.  WHOA!!  Talk and talk and talk and talk …. HOLY Guacamole.

And all she really talked about were all these people.  People I have never heard of before and she was SHOCKED to say the least. I mean we do not run in the same circles.  I asked her questions about these people and she couldn’t answer them.  The questions would have helped me figure out who these people were.  I think it had to do with who were “run” with.  And how she emailed specific people and got responses.  How much she weighs and wants to weigh more.  No she does not have an ED.

I may be blowing this WAY our of proportion but I am not the type of person who is comfortable with this type of person.  I do not take criticism well.  I am trying to change that.  I am trying not to jump down peoples throat for it or get short with them.  Trying to change.  How would you have handled it?  Ignored it?  Said something?


I know I am rambling and just talking in circles but I wanted to vent and this really is the only place to do it.  So I apologize if I have offended anyone.  😦

Now I am off to do some work.

And here it is …. 2018

New Year, New Me

Happy New Year.   Happy 2018.

Are we ready for the new year?  Hope so because it is upon us.  For some it creeped up and for some it was a BANG it’s here.  For me it was a fast 2017.  I guess moving from GA to FL had something to do with it.  One month we are moving into a new house and the next we were here for 6 months and now it is 2018.  So yeah it moved pretty quickly for me.

So today is:
Monday, January 1, 2018
First day of the year
First day of the month
First day of the week

New Year
New Goals
New Workouts
New Accomplishments
New Adventures


Going to write everything down.  The good, the bad.  Everything.  Food, accomplishments, workouts, personal gains, bad moods, positivity, negativity, losses, everything.

Today marks my 17th year of being “sober”.  December 31, 2001 was my last drop of alcohol.  I woke up on January 1 stating I was done.  Not drinking anymore.  And I haven’t.  Nothing.  I kind of thought it would be hard to do, like quitting smoking, but it really wasn’t.  The fact I was up to a 12 pack a night was a good indication I thought I had to stop.  So I did.

And why is it when you tell people you have stopped drinking they have the need to ask WHY?  But when you mention the fact that you stopped smoking they’re all like “YAY Good for you!!” hahaha  I have always found that so odd.  So I am 17 years sober and 4 years smoke free 😀

I know I am pretty much all over the place here but lots to say and mind in jumbling.

Workouts.  Did my first one in months today.  I am going to be SO SO sore.  I can already feel it in my thighs and my hamstrings.  I set about 4 or 5 alarms so I can get an early start.  A new start.  Got out of bed at 515a.  I had my coffee and took all my new year stats (weight, measurements, BMI, etc…)  Got my workout in at 6a and now I am free for the day.

Business.  I am going to work on building my business this year.  I already have 3 calls scheduled for this week alone.  I am really excited about this.  My new VentureToFitness.  I have so much to do.  I slacked so badly last year I didn’t make any money really.  I will do it this year!!  I have a lot of people behind me.  I know I can do this I just have to put my mind to it.

I am off to do some personal development and some reading and self reflecting.

Enjoy your day and again, HAPPY NEW YEAR

Happy New Year

It’s Here!!
It’s Here!!

New Year.

And I am going to bed early, LOL

I always stay up. The last few years we have been in Biloxi, M staying at the Beau Rivage and ringing in the new year there. This year I am heading to bed in about 30 minutes. I want to get up early and get my New Year on!! I need to get my workout in, work on getting my business up and running. Like REALLY work office hours. I haven’t done this since …….. 1999? This may be a bit hard to start.

I feel if I can just start and get a schedule down I will be good. I need to get this business going. I tried last year and that didn’t work. THIS IS MY YEAR. I am training. Taking online “classes”. I mentioned before I am working on my personal development.

I can’t wait to have my team call. I can get lots of ideas on how to start, WHERE to start and what to do. Other than be consistent.

Short post, I am yawning while typing. I feel like it is time for bed now.

Please stay safe out there tonight.


2 More Days ….

until 2018.

Do you have plans?  What are you doing to ring in the New Year?

We were planning on staying in Mel Beach until the first of the year but after speaking with Child #1 we have decided to go home tomorrow.  He was under the impression we were leaving tomorrow and he was planning on having some friends over for the new year.  We told him we were staying and he said that was fine and that he would find somewhere to go.

Yeah …. no …. we’re good.

I would much rather him stay home and celebrate ringing in the New Year home than have him out on the road afterwards, on the way home.

This is actually a blessing in disguise for me 😀  I was planning on starting all my fitness, nutrition, and goals Monday and it would have been …. eh.  After a 3 hour drive home and more than likely later in the afternoon or early evening.  There is no way I was going to want to do anything when I got home.  Get home, bring in the dogs, get my stuff (granted not a lot as we don’t have suitcases) and sit my butt on the couch.

Now I can get home tomorrow early evening and not have to worry about anything.  Well I will get my stuff ready for Monday.

Day 1 / 365

Week 1 / 52

I can do this.  I got this.

:: What You Think About You Bring About ::


Ok I had a great blog idea …… about 4 hours ago.

I knew I should have written it down or made a voice memo because now I am clueless.  No idea what I wanted to talk about.  I HATE it when I do this.  And I do it a lot.

I know I was at my dad’s.  I THINK we were out to lunch.


This may be a really short …. never mind.  Found something to post abut 😀

I signed up for a Test Group for a workout.  The workout is 80 days.  Like …. Y I K E S!!  I have done a 2 month program but not a 3.  This is going to be hard.  I have been doing really well with my nutrition though so that part shouldn’t be too difficult.

The eating is all timed out.  A daily schedule of when and what to eat.  This is great for me.  I alway wind up eating the same thing and my food schedule is never on point.  The only thing I MAY have issues with is eating before a workout.  I normally do not.  I get up, have my coffee, drink my water, have my pre workout then go workout.  I hope I don’t get sick.

The workout are 6 days a week.  We get a day of rest during this one.  YAY!  These are going to be hard.  I haven’t worked out …. in like …… Oh My forever.  I can’t even imagine how i am going to feel.

This all starts on January 15th but I will start another program to prep for this.  I am going to be SO SORE!!!!

Personal Development

I have never really “believed” in personal development.  Actually I really didn’t know what it was.  How it worked.  What was considered to be personal development.  I had always thought that they were all motivational speakers.  And honestly they were talking out their asses.  

Since I have learned about it more recently and have decided to be more open minded I thought I shall give this a try. I was told they are not all motivational speakers.  They are not all gospel speakers.  They are not all the same.  I didn’t know there was personal development for business.  I had NO CLUE really.

I am going to give this a try.  I have started with some Darren Hardy.  He is the author of The Compound Effect.  I have tried to read that book but to no avail.  I just can’t get through it.  I understand the concept I just can’t read the book, or listen to the book.  So I have opted to try his Darren Daily videos.  Daily Mentoring with Darren Hardy/  They are actually really good.  Some really good content.  They are little 5 minute videos.  

I have started to listen on a daily basis.  The emails arrive at like 3am so when I get up they are in my inbox waiting for me.  I wake up, get my coffee and check my mail for my video.  Great way to start the day don’t you think.  

Well off to watch another video.  Enjoy your day
