Lately I have been feeling drained. Do you ever have those times when your phone rings or a text comes through and you look at is and your mind automatically says, “I can’t. I just can’t today.” I don’t know if it’s too much screen time or burnout or what, but lately my mind keeps … Continue reading Gingerfunk’s Blog || I Can’t
They say you are limited to what you believe. What you think about yourself, others and your perception in general, can actually limit who or what you become. You may or may not agree with me, but the power of your mind can definitely shape or limit you. I keep reading about how people say … Continue reading NOT broken
Some days when I want to write something and save it for later I will email myself. Last night I was going through my email folders, because yes, my email is pretty organized. My house could be a mess if you walked in, but not my email. I have folders that are all labeled. I … Continue reading A Little More Love (cause you really can’t have too much)

I hate to tell you this, but most of the time, the people who are always trying to lose weight, actually know how to.
So we are just one week into the new year and I'm loving my gym time! I have been here 6 out of 7 days this week. Now, before you go telling me to “slow down” and “don't over do it”, please save your breath. I have been over doing it for months now. Over … Continue reading Deep thoughts…from the sauna!?
For most of my life weight has been an issue for me. I’ve had ups and downs. The last time I remember being really happy with my body was when I started running. I had just quit smoking for the first time. (yes, I had slip ups and have quit more than once.) Lately I … Continue reading Getting out of my own way
These days we live in a world where every time you turn on the tv someone is trying to sell you something to fix your flaw. Weight loss products, hair color, hide the back fat, whiten your teeth, stuff these pads in your pants to give you a big butt! We can all find something … Continue reading Attitude of Gratitude
