Mental toughness: I tell myself it's not my strong suit, but I overcame addiction in my 20s. Of course that was no easy task, but I did it without ever looking back. I had to make a change. It was that simple. However, my strong will often gets derailed by my internal chatter.
It's a personal goal of mine to make everything more fun! This of course translates to workouts as well. If we are having more fun in our workouts- we will look forward to that sweat sesh that much more! Here are 4 tactical tips you can use in your workouts and are encouraged in Fitness Inspired programs too

I hope by being vulnerable (also scary for me) and sharing, you or one of your friends can learn the lessons without physically going through the same challenges/pain/struggles. So here it is, the lessons I am being made aware of and trying to learn from right now in real (still raw) time:

Most of us have routines. Every day we wake up, brush our teeth, get ready for work, drive to work, I could keep on going but you get the picture. We don't even think about many of these activities because they are so ingrained in our routines and habits. Why not add a shot of health to that routine?!

Yay! I have this delicious and super healthy recipe to share with you guys. My cousin and friend, Jane, created this easy and healthy meal, and it is AMAZING!
