Finding the balance of physical and mental health through adventures and fitness

Category Archives: Pic-spiration




I hit the gym quite early this morning, but some days I feel that dragging my butt out of bed on a Monday morning is completely necessary to start the week off right. You can want to change all you want, but if you don’t make an effort nothing will ever happen.


Happy Monday!


I never thought I would run a mile.

I never thought I would lose 70 pounds.

I never thought I would survive like clean eating.

I never thought I could do pull ups.

I never thought I could lift weights.

I never thought the changes I made to help myself would inspire other people, but now I want to inspire other people. It’s all about baby steps and finding what works for you. When it gets tough don’t look at the road ahead, look at how far you’ve come. As for me, 6 am comes a little too early and tomorrow is a double lifting day. Two circuits of shoulders, biceps and triceps before work and another two sets on my lunch hour. If it’s important, you’ll find the time. Have a great Sunday night and Monday morning :]
