Sometimes I go fishing....

Since January, my coach has been assigning me YouTube videos of yoga. I was looking at this week's assignment and noticed that I had actually posted some videos of my own. I found one I completely forgot about.


I know that woman. This was October 2009.
I will never be embarrassed by what size clothing I used to wear. I LOVE LOOKING BACK AT PICTURES AND CREATING BEFORE AND AFTER SHOTS. I use these images to remind me of all I have accomplished. Here is a little secret: I rarely see in the mirror what you see when you look at me.
I need concrete evidence.
I create before/after pictures to remind myself of my evolution. Sometimes I post them to fish for compliments because sometimes, this journey is HARD. Who am I kidding? Everyday this journey is hard. Everyday is a choice: a choice to eat smarter, a choice to get out of bed before sunrise and go swim or run or get on my bike trainer, a choice to continue on this journey.
To all my friends who take the bait when I toss it out there: THANKS! I needed to hear that.


  1. "Everyday this journey is hard." A-freakin'-men! It IS hard, but it's worth it. I too have a hard time seeing a difference when I look in the mirror but looking back at old pictures always reminds me of how far I've come. Thank you for sharing your journey with us, it's always inspiring. :)

  2. If it was easy everybody would do it. The journey to your destination is what makes you the person you are and will be. Ironman!

    1. Thanks Jeff! Looking forward to meeting you in Augusta this summer.
