This last 8 weeks have been a learning experience for me. I have tried many “diets” and weight loss ideas. I have done Atkins, Weight Watchers, South Beach, and joining several gyms. What I realized that each of these were just one piece and they were missing a few crucial things; Community, accountability, and [...]
This week has come so fast! At the beginning I felt that 2 months was a long time and now here I am at week 8 and I can’t believe it went so fast. I love working out with my group of ladies (and occasionally a guy), but my group was mostly ladies. I [...]
Oh, week 7. This week I have not lost any more weight but lost another .75 inches for a total of 11.25 inches! I am now completely confident that this is the rest of my life. I am still amazed at the things I am finding to cook. I am now looking into what [...]
Wow, week 6 already. I weighed in on Monday and I am down a total of 14 pounds and 10.5 inches so far! This is crazy. I knew that I had it in me but there is always sheer astonishment that I am actually doing this. It is actually becoming real life. The changes [...]
Monday—I was extremely stressed out at work and almost quit. I also was dealing with the anxiety of my girls flying out the Idaho to see Grandma and Grandpa, all by themselves.

Well this is 4th of July week. I was a little concerned with having so many days of work in a row. It was also a pretty stressful week as my older daughter Sydney broke her arm on Tuesday. My first thought was; what will I do for my workout and such on Wednesday [...]
Ahhhh, carbohydrates. I didn’t realize that I would actually miss the fruit that I never ate before. I also was excited to have an English muffin with my egg and sausage in the morning. I learned this week that I love my workouts. OK, I will be honest, I don’t love my trainers on [...]
What I found at the end of week one, is that it was a new learning experience to cook, plan my meals, and even shop for food. I also don’t advise someone to start on a Monday and on that same day have your adjustment, massage and your first workout! I was very ill [...]
Here is where I need to start.
At the beginning of May 2013 I was invited to an 8 Weeks to Wellness seminar on May 31st. I had been seeing my chiropractor Dr. Justin Nye for about 8 months for a car accident. He decided to start offering the 8 Weeks to Wellness program at his [...]
