Change Your Inner Dialogue

Positive change begins with your inner dialogue. Be kind to yourself. Encouraging to yourself. Forgiving, grateful, and loving. When we believe the devil’s lies, we start down a dark path of doubt, fear, lack of self worth, and unhealthy patterns. If you truly want change, it has to start with your inner dialogue. The inner

Confidence

Confidence. It can be the difference between seizing an opportunity, or missing an opportunity. For me, confidence has been the difference between staying in Corporate America in a job that made me miserable and leaving to become a stay-at-home-mom.

Motivation Monday: When God Nudges Us

Throughout this past week, my boys and I filled two shoe boxes with various art supplies, books, toys, and underwear for Operation Christmas*. We chose to make one box for a girl aged 5-9, and one box for a boy also aged 5-9. Around mid-week, I was unbuckling my 2 year old from his car seat, when

Friday Motivation!

Friday Motivation! This is SO true! I saw a variation of this idea written in a fellow Sweat Pink ambassador’s comment, and re-worded it. It reminds me of Rachel’s shocking reveal on Biggest Loser, and how almost every woman I know (including myself) has gotten to their lowest weight by some really unhealthy methods like starvation.

Sweat is…

I saw this quote on Twitter the other night and thought it was hilarious—and true! LOVE IT!!! Using the iPhone app, Over, I used an up-close shot of my yoga pants as a background and reworded it slightly.
