2018 is over and consequentially it is time for a 2018 end of year review. 2018 is over and the New Year is a time to reflect back on the year behind us. It is a time to Celebrate the things that we were able to achieve and accomplish. Additionally, it's a chance to identity the things that we might have chosen to do differently. This is a pretty common form of [...]

Let’s take a break from all the seriousness. I know I need one. Not to mention I still owe you all a very important Disneyland Paris Half Marathon event recap. I’ve ran a lot of half marathons. Forty-one to be exact. By far, my all-time favorite half marathons are the runDisney events. If you ask me, which you sort of did by coming to read my blog, this is appropriate. Because, for [...]

Six months ago, in the beginning of April I told you that I was breaking my silence and returning to blogging. Alongside that, in the "This is #MyBariLife" blog, I announced that thanks to the good folks over at BariLife I was going to get the opportunity to not only find my voice again, but to try to gain back something else that I had lost over the course of the last year and a half, my love [...]

Transformation: Emotional Running

By |2018-09-10T08:30:53-04:00September 11th, 2018|My Story, Bariatric Fitness, Bariatric Wellness, Life After Weight Loss|0 Comments

Four months ago, after a yearlong hiatus I decided it was time to take back my run. Prior to my break, running had been therapeutic for me. It had been my means of emotionally escaping the world when I didn’t want to deal with whatever was going on in it. Running had been where I found comfort when trying to deal with the grief of losing my father. It was where I found peace and [...]

Transformation: Is Comparison The Thief of Joy?

Transformation. The word makes most people think of change in form or appearance. But, transformations come in many fashions. Four months ago, I announced in my "#ThisIsMyBariLife" post that thanks to the good folks over at BariLife, I was going to back to Paris to run in the annual Paris Run Disney Half Marathon Weekend. I had stop running entirely for almost a whole year. My last half marathon had been back in May of 2016 [...]

There are moments that you look back on in life and think, “If I had that to do all over again, I’d sure do that differently.” Everyone has them. The emotion that drives these feelings can be different; sometimes it’s regret, sometimes it’s lack of education, while other times it’s a lack of knowledge. When I wrote “The Truth About Why I Stopped Running” blog last week, if you asked me what emotion was fueling [...]

The Truth About Why I Stopped Running

I’m an Obesity Rebel. That means I don’t let this disease kick my ass any more. I make sure that I am always fighting back and that it never gets to have the hold on me it once did. But the methods I use to fight back have changed a little over the nearly 8 years since I started this journey. One of the keys to my success in weight loss was that I traded [...]

We Will Always Have Disney Paris

... We will always have Paris! There is a famous line from a famous movie of which I have never seen: “We’ll always have Paris.” From what I understand it’s a line used in parting as the lead character realizes that the end of their romance is over and he fondly consoles her by reminding her that they will always have good memories. Obviously since I am quoting this movie, I will have [...]
