No Hard Work, No Results. How Bad You Want It?

Self-evaluation time. Do you want the results badly enough to work for them? Moment of truth. What’s it REALLY worth to you? Make time, and show up with a smile – even if you have to fake it, you will be one step closer to your goal.

What Doesn’t Kill Me Makes Me AWESOME Instead

My weakness is baked goods – which are generally a no-no for those of us with insulin resistance, so I have been on a mission to make low-carb baked goods and pancakes.

Don’t worry about how others see you; while I understand that perception is important, self-definition will take you much further in life. Just figure out who YOU want YOU to be and take steps toward being the BEST YOU that you can possibly be, every day. As long as you are growing and happy with yourself, don’t dwell on it. Pay attention from critique from those special people in your life that would never steer you wrong, and only set you straight, but depend only on your own inner guide to determine your path. xoxoxoxo
