    Genetically I belong in this category (See Photo…no it’s not mine).

    So what is a girl to do? Or boy…I have brothers with these genetics as well.My hips get wider, but that was the ONLY thing that was filling out my jeans.

    For a long time, I didn’t know. I just assumed it was my cross to bear in life…I get it…if this is my only cross to bear than I am fortunate. My oldest brother and I would even joke about it because he too had the same problem.

    You can imagine what I dreamed of having. The perfectly rounded bubble that helps pants fit beautifully.

    Over the last two years I finally decided to go after my dream butt. I knew it wouldn’t happen immediately and I knew it wouldn’t be easy, but I was willing to give it a try. And no it’s not there…yet! Continue reading

  • SHOULD I EAT FRUIT?

    So yesterday I talked about how to conquer each day. One of the main reasons I feel it is important to do those kinds of posts is because sometimes we forget that taking a moment and re-evaluating is just as important to our progress as is just plugging along and getting all swept up in life and chaos. For everything we must stop and adjust every once in a while…and hopefully soon it will be your pants because you’ve dropped a size or two.

    I have, in the past, had a tendency when I hear something about health and nutrition to jump in full force without a second glance. There are good aspects to this, but maturity has also taught me that extremes are never going to last. It’s like when I do the laundry. For some reason I have to have each and every piece of laundry, right side out. You have to understand that this is a weird eccentricity because I don’t have to have anything perfect! My middle name is “take everything with a grain of salt”. But for some reason I feel like the laundry has to be completely unwrinkled and right side out before I place it on the hanger. Because of this extreme in life, it makes doing the laundry a horrible task. I have ALWAYS hated laundry!!

    It’s just an example of why extremes of anything make us tired and warn out. If the small things didn’t matter than we would be much more inclined to simply proceed with passion, yet we get caught and obsessed on the little things around us.

    So first, let’s try to make our goals less extreme! I mean we can set out our ideal goals but going extreme only makes the path seem to treacherous and we’ll fail within the first few tries. Think of it this way…if your goal is to accomplish a full marathon, wouldn’t it make more sense to start with a half marathon? Continue reading
