• When you realize life isn't just about weight loss…

    What do you write about when you have nothing to write about but feel like you have to write about something important so you feel like you’re inspiring and motivating people? I HAVE NO CLUE.

    There’s a reason I love T2T and I love that it’s completely different then any other company because we have this whole personal aspect to it.. but what happens when I have nothing to say? I have been so consumed with trying to grow T2T and make it something incredible, that I haven’t even had anything to report about… I haven’t gotten on the scale, I haven’t noticed any weight loss, or weight gain so that’s always a plus HAHA, but I just feel like there’s nothing to say.

    I want to sit here and like, OH EMMM GEEEE, and tell everyone how amazing things are, and how YOU DON’T HAVE TO hate your life and lose weight, haha, but I mean there is literally just nothing to say! I can say this… I have been eating pretty clean, minus a few good cheat meals, (and when I say cheat meals, yes, I mean pizza and fries, and all that yummy stuff) BUT, since I still find time to workout, I am not gaining anything… So that’s always a plus haha.

    798294When life gets in the way, as in, your number one priority anymore isn’t making sure you are losing weight, or looking great, I think you can focus again on the rest of life.. and maybe that’s whats happening to me? I used to be obsessed with making sure I was losing weight and eating all the right things, but now, that I MUST be ok with where I’m at, it’s not my focus… Does that mean I’ve won? I workout daily, it’s became my life, and I eat right… so wait, does that mean, I’m finally happy? Wait… wait a minute here… revelation? Has my mindset of being OK with my body finally set in??? I think as I’m writing this, I’m realizing I don’t HATE the way I look anymore, and I don’t STRESS about it everyday… woah.. maybe there is something to write about today.. and maybe that thing is, once you realize that you’ve gotten to a happy place, your views change and life GOES ON! HOLY SHIT BATMAN, I’m happy…. And here’s my two cents.. do CrossFit, it made me this way. and yes, it’s a cult, because it’s awesome hahaha

    Ok enough for today.. it’s funny, I think I found something to talk about!

    Choose to be the best YOU can be. – Give it your all in everything you do, commit to your goals, and don’t compare yourself to anyone else.  John Wooden once said, “Success and happiness is peace of mind, which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to do your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.”  Never try to be better than anyone else, but never stop trying to be the best you can be.  If you feel called to compare yourself to someone, compare yourself to an earlier version of yourself.

  • Masking my true feelings?

    da-mo-525Well, it’s been a while… I haven’t had time to blog, let alone, anything else in life… with the shirts side of things blowing up, and family illnesses, I haven’t had anytime to just sit here on my laptop and share with you guys how things have been going.. which I think is sad, because the blog side of T2T has been such a big part of this! Well, thanks to my friends bachelorette party, and being up in Boston a day early, I have a few minutes to myself where I can update you on ALL MY AWESOME NON-PROGRESS! 🙂

    How the hell are you supposed to juggle life, travel, working out, eating right? If you have the answer, please tell me haha.. I used to think I was busy, but now, I KNOW I’m busy… but the one consistent thing.. I KEEP working out. Yes, that’s right.. how have I not gained a million pounds after being super busy, eating kind of crappy, and not having time to prep meals? Well, it’s because the one thing I do try to make sure I do, is WORKOUT every… damn… day. Do you know how hard that is? hahaha… I don’t have time for my friends or family, let alone work, but I do have time for the gym. I think it’s the one thing that keeps me sane.

    Over the last few weeks I’ve had a bunch of conversations with a few friends about body image.. sparked by some people in a facebook group not liking the name of my company.. Thick to Thin, saying that I was contradicting myself by saying people need to be a certain size, by putting sizes in the name of my company… but that’s not true, and that’s for a whole other post. The conversations I have been having have been about loving myself, and the body that I have given myself after losing weight… I’m not sure how I should feel… I know my self esteem and confidence has definitely grown over the last few months, and I love it.. I love feeling better about myself, but If I’m supposed to love myself and love my own skin, why are there HUNDREDS of photos on my iphone of me trying to make myself look better/skinnier/smaller/happier??? Like, isn’t that just masking my true feelings? If I was truly OK with my body image, I wouldn’t be trying to make myself better by the way I take a selfie… right? I think loving yourself and wanting to improve things about yourself, is a double edged sword. On one hand, you have the acceptance stage, the stage where you realize maybe you won’t ever look like the victoria’s secret models on TV (and I TOTALLY know I won’t ever look like that, and I’m 100% ok with that haha) and you are totally TOTALLY happy with how you look (I wrote about being happy for the first time like a few weeks ago)… but then you keep looking at yourself in the mirror and start finding new things to not like… it’s like, if it’s not one thing, it’s another. And when will it stop? I don’t want to mask my true feelings, because that’s not fair to myself, and I know I’m way happier… but man, this is tough!

    I HAVE WAY TOO MANY SELFIES!

    In today’s society we are supposed to STOP hating ourselves, and I agree, we need to, but why is it that our heads won’t allow us to STOP nit-picking the stuff we see in the mirror?

    Grr….. frustration has set in.

    Ok now that rant is over, it’s back to work! I read this article the other day, and this was just HILARIOUS, because I get this all the time hahahah 

    1. Analyzing the “You look so thin!” comment on a picture.

    Wait, do I actually look thin? Because I didn’t lose any weight. Are you just amazed as to how good I look in this picture as opposed to other pictures, or to what I look like in person? People don’t comment “skinny mini” on a skinny person’s picture. So now you have me thinking… do you really think I’m skinny? Or do you think I’m skinny just in that picture?
