Excerpt From A Lecture About Goal Setting in 2015

Below is the video of a presentation I made to the TriHealth Young Professionals group on January 15, 2015. Several of the members had heard about my journey and thought it would be an amazing motivation going into the first meeting of the year if I would speak about some of the goal setting I had done for my weight loss and how it could apply to everyday life. I hope this talk inspires you to go after your dreams now matter how crazy. Take a gamble on yourself in the hopes of big things in the coming year!

Friday Food Fix (A LITTLE LATE) - Split Pea Soup!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! 3 Things Crucial For Success in 2015

A chance to peer through the window of time to assess the successes and failures of the last year and a second chance to make things right.

Any Old Port in a Storm

“Any old port in a storm…”  this is one of my mother’s favorite sayings in reply to a search for good news or hope in a situation.  Whether you’re a veteran or a newbie, I think her catchphrase is applicable to us all.

Friday Food Fix - Lentil Soup

Nights are getting colder as winter is approaching so warm up with one of my favorite, go to, budget recipes. With over 22 g of protein in a serving, this is an amazing way to each cheap. This entire recipe can be made for about $1.00 a serving. Pair this with a salad for an amazing and healthy home cooked meal.
