Sore and happy

Good Saturday Morning, fellow Evolutionaries!

I woke up this morning thinking I'd go for a run, but after feeling the effects of the Shakeology 50 minute workout, I decided I would let my body rest!

It's been a long time since my body has felt a workout so much! I can't tell you how good it feels. Seriously. You know the sore feeling you have after you ate too much or slept the wrong way or have been on your feet all day? That's not the kind of sore this is. This is the kind of sore that says (coming from my muscles), "Hey...we enjoyed that and you don't use us enough! Let's do that again!"

I like that kind of sore. How about you?

I'll write more later this weekend. For now, there's a barking dog, a hungry daughter and a lot more Saturday morning chores! Thanks for reading!

Back, and better than ever!

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm constantly changing, I'm terrible at making decisions and I don't land in the same place for very long. I'm inconsistent, I'm moody and I'm not very driven (when it comes to work, anyway). If you've followed my blog, you know that it also ebbs and flows with the waves of my whimsy. I may blog everyday, and then you may not see me for months.

But now I'm back.

Not only am I back, but I've decided to take a step in my own personal development. There is one thing in my journey that has remained consistent since 2001, and that's my personal journey of health and fitness. So now, through an opportunity with Team Beach Body, not only am I choosing to build a life and business from my personal health journey, but I am attempting to bring an entire city with me.

Don't get me wrong; New Orleans has some great gyms and personal training facilities, but as a whole, we are one of the most unhealthy cities in the United States. We are obese, we are overweight, and we are feeding our children the wrong things as they follow in our footsteps of lethargy and complacency. We are happy, yes...but we are killing ourselves.

This blog will continue to be a reflection of my journey...whatever it may be on a given day. But my journey is now grander...the vision broader...and the challenge much greater. I hope you will join me, whether as a reader, a supporter or a fellow advocate of the health of this great city.

Thanks for continuing along this road with me!
