Fall Forward

This Morning I woke up Feeling Brand new and I jumped up. Feeling my highs, and my lows. In my soul, and my goals...Ok I'll stop singing Talib Kweli and get to the point of my post.

Seriously, This morning I woke up and felt like the air had shifted and well....it feels like FALL....
The mornings are crisper, the nights are cooler and its dark when I wake up...sigh. I guess all good things come to an end : (

I don't want think of fall, but it seems like everyone is talking about it - whether its in fashion, whether its going back to school, all the commercials are even talking about the fall line up!And don't get me wrong I love fall...I am a labour day baby but it seems....TOO SOON!

With my goal of competing under my belt, I am trying to get back  into training without OVER doing it. You see, I lived at the gym. Morning and Night....I seem to have a lot of time on my hands. Right now, my workouts are pretty much reduced to two 30 minute cardio sessions a week and three weight training sessions. This is WEIRD. 

I'm learning how to have a balance again and I don't know if I like it : ) On another note...I was surprised but a little sneak peak of the photo shoot I did the day before the competition. I was extremely lucky to have my makeup done by my talented friend and manager at COACH. I cant wait to show you more pictures when I get them.

How do you feel this morning? what are some of your goals for fall?


  1. Love your picture!!  Enjoy your extra time!

  2. Ohh powerful woman! Looking beyond awesome!

    Wow what a wonderful photo.  You look so amazing.  No wonder you are feeling so great.

  5. The color of your bra is gorgeous.
    I know that's a weird compliment, but whatever.  It is.
    And your hair looks pretty.
    I definitely don't look this hot when I am at the gym.

    I am so glad that you are feeling better!!!  Life is all about balance. :)

  6. Always good to have a balance girlie. It's great to be motivated to workout. I wish I had that kind of motivation , I would be in way better shape than I am right now if I did! I know Fall is definitely creeping up, but as far as weather not here in Houston but all these stores are selling fall stuff and it's still 100+ degrees!

  7. While the days are getting shorter and you feel The Fall in the air, we here in South Africa is seeing longer days and feeling The Spring. 
    I do agree that Spring and Summer always feel so short. 
    You look so good in the photo. Can see that you really do take good care of your body. 
    My goals for Spring: To run my 10k race on 27 August and to improve my speed in running :)
