Falling Without Failing What Chris Powell has Taught Me

By |2013-06-27T10:47:02-04:00June 25th, 2013|My Story, Bariatric Fitness|6 Comments

As you all know I am a big fan of Chris Powell. Chris and his kind-hearted wife Heidi Powell through their communications with me on Facebook have become an integral part of my weight loss journey and huge motivators in my desire and determination to become a personal trainer. Chris often mentions the need to learn to "Fall without Failing" - What this concept teaches is that we have to expect that there are going to [...]

Dear RunDisney thank you for breaking my heart

I need to write in order to process right now. There are times when even though I know that I lead a charmed and blessed life, disappointment hits my table in a very big way and when it does, it hurts. I'm not even sure that what I am trying to make happen won't happen, we're approaching the witching hour and whether or not I gather the necessary sponsors is left to be seen, but [...]

Today is Father's Day and I'm struggling with missing my Dad terribly. I miss my Dad everyday but I think there are some days when it is worse than others. Father's Day, the anniversary of the day he passed away, and his Birthday. Yesterday, I ran a 5K in honor of my Father at the Dadfest 5K in Frisco Texas. I finished in just under 37 minutes and then doubled back to where my friends [...]

This blog is a several weeks overdue, but if you follow my blog you know that I've had my hands full and have been a busy little Slender Seeker so don't spank me too hard, or if you have to spank me, do it with something soft. So let me start by saying - What happens in Vegas - doesn't stay in Vegas, it comes home with you, haunts you, and makes you want to [...]

After Hurricane Comes a Rainbow – Selecting my Surgeon

As I spoke to several of my closest friends yesterday to share my news, one comment stood out most to me among them all. "You lead a charmed life Pandora, Life is making up for every horrible thing you have been through." -  Keisha (Waning Woman) I believe this to be 100{6e74c841b8f362d8aea590534016dc569fd3035eeb9e530df8846b42682c6656} true.

Unconditional love is a rarity in our world, it is not something that everyone is capable of giving and in truth I am not sure it is something that I ever would have understood had I not had the opportunity to experience it with my Father. My Dad [...]
