I’ve Been Defeated Already, but I’m Going to Try Again

I’ve Been Defeated Already, but I’m Going to Try Again

It takes courage to start over again. To say, "I've been defeated already, but I'm going to try again." Any time you set big goals or push yourself out of your comfort zone, it feels scary. But this is what I have learned is true. You have to learn to step into your fears. I remember when I was first trying to grow my brand I would email up to 100 people a week asking if we could collaborate toget ...[Read More]

This ONE Thing Makes All The Difference in the World

This ONE Thing Makes All The Difference in the World

Sometimes having a small win in your pocket can make all the difference. I know what it feels like to feel like a failure because you never can stick with your goals. I know what it feels like to start Monday off with excitement and end the week disappointed that you didn't do even half the things you set out to do. I know what it feels like to put yourself on a super low calorie diet only to raid ...[Read More]

Remember What is Really Important Here…

Remember What is Really Important Here…

The Power of Habits

Natalie Hodson Lacing Shoes

"A nail is driven out by another nail. Habit is overcome by habit." -Desiderius Erasmus I have learned that, for me, my motivation comes in cycles. I have noticed that a few times each year I go through a couple weeks where I lose that motivation and desire to workout. What I have learned, is that when I start to feel unmotivated, I really try to focus and fall back on my habits to keep me going. ...[Read More]

Being Kind to Yourself

being kind

I still have days where I feel insecure in the gym. A lot of days actually. I am not immune to it. Days where none of my clothes fit. Days where I feel scrawny and not strong. Days where I look in the mirror and look at my legs and don't feel fit or in shape. Days where my emotions got the better of me and I wanted to cry halfway through my workout. I've learned a few things about myself. 1) It is ...[Read More]

Success Is…

I have failed so many more times then I have succeeded. It can be so easy to get caught up in the "failure" part but what I've found is that if you write out your goals and have a clear vision for what you know you want to accomplish, it gets a little easier to get on track after a setback.

30 Minutes of Walking

    Have you ever felt this way? Sometimes I've gotten so caught up in having the perfect diet and the perfect workout routine that I end up just getting overwhelmed and doing nothing, or always saying, "I'll start on Monday". When, the truth is, it's not the perfect workout program that will make a long term difference, but rather the consistent, small habits that make the biggest long ...[Read More]
