New meaning to going out to eat.

It’s getting serious…

It’s getting serious…

Week 2 completed… 16 days to go. Half way mark!

// I Met Him Once & Knew He was a Real Man. This is Why.//

He’s a Protector: He removed me from situations in which I may be vulnerable or get hurt. 

He is Incredibly Grateful: He expressed gratitude to play in Ohio and in his first professional game. He understands that what he has in his life is a privilege. He never takes it for granted or feels entitled by his achievements.

He is a Leader: He has worked hard to earn respect and get where he wants to go. He doesn’t rely on his parents wealth or connections to get him somewhere. He exudes confidence because he has put in the time and hard work to truly earn it.

He is a Role Model: He leads by example and respects himself and others at all times. How? Someone actually hit him. He did not engage in the behavior or fight back even though he is 6’2”, almost 200lbs and could crush the guy. Instead, he laughed it off and moved towards bigger and better things.

He Treats Women with Respect: He was kind, considerate and thoughtful. He was concerned for my well-being, safety and reputation. He asked questions and made efforts to ensure I felt okay.

He Makes His Own Fortune: He is young, yet lives on his own and already makes a decent living. He is focused on his future and being able to provide. It is clear he strives for success and wont settle for anything less.

This guy is the real deal. He is amazing.
This is what I want in a man. This is what I deserve.

// Day In Review//


  • Did not sleep well last night. Coffee late in the day + lots on my mind do NOT help me make good food choices.
  • I might have eaten half of an angel food cake.


  • Met with gym business owners who provided really great insights and advice. “Ready. Fire. Aim.” Grateful & inspired!
  • 9-9.30min 2.5miles & circuit!


  • Date night, be present!
  • Trust. If it is meant to be, it will be :)
I can’t believe I am actually doing this!

// Keep Going//

I started this goal only 10 days ago and I’m absolutely proud of the changes I’ve made seemingly over night.

  • I am eating so clean (besides the cheat day I allowed myself this Saturday!) 
  • I am working out EVERY day (except 1 day a week I allow myself an active rest day)
  • I am staying positive and DOING this, making no excuses and focusing on the outcome I want

I realize it’s been a short period of time, but I am not losing weight as I expected. In fact, I’ve gained weight. This is not ideal considering the deadline I’m up against, but how I feel and the muscles I’m seeing make it so worth it!! The best advice received thus far is to just keep going. And my friend is right. I can’t give up on my goal because it’s not working out as I wanted. If I don’t drop enough weight by August, well that’s a risk I’m willing to take because this goes so much further than a try out. I am taking care of my mind and body, looking and feeling better and that is what really matters. (It’s also helps when he tells me I have a great ass). Just saying. Don’t stop, keep going!

Lost in love with you it’s a #prettything
