Around this time last year I was walking through the IRONMAN Mont Tremblant village, getting ready for a little workout the next day!

If you aren't challenging yourself to do scary things with a #chronicillness, how will any #positive change ever happen? I know this is an easier thing to say than do. But when go outside of your box and challenge yourself, the rest of life does get a little easier. Trust me.

If you wake up fearing every day, you'll never be able to make any progress. Try to create a plan, even if it's a small one to overcome your fears.

When I look back on the journey I've had to get to this point in my life and this level of health, I'm amazed that I ever got here. Just goes to show you, NEVER GIVE UP.

Don't let the fear of losing with chronic illness be greater than the excitement of winning with chronic illness.

I was going to shut it down and stop training this year because I was tired and my mind just wasn't in it. Then I put together a great weekend of training with over 60 miles done.

It's important to know that you aren't alone in this fight. Surround yourself with positive and supportive people, and you'll be amazed how helpful it can be.

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow." Mary Anna Radmacher

Almost time to get off the couch and get my nightly routine done. I know it helps me stay on track both mentally and physically, but I am really comfy right now with my 80 lb dog on my lap.

There are days when I don't feel like BA, then I have to remember that I am an IRONMAN. There are days my chronic illness will take certain things away from me, but that will last forever.

Had a few good meetings this morning with some great clients. Excited about what's ahead, but I have to calm my mind/body down now. Running on adrenaline is nice, but it eventually comes to an end.

There are days when my body wakes up and decides - I'm going to make this day a lot harder than it needs to be. Oh well. Just have to roll with it. Going to make sure I take time to rest this afternoon.

While I understand the concept of Monday meetings at work, I also think Tuesday might be a better day for them. I am self motivated and want to get to work on Monday. Meetings kill my excitement to get my tasks done when I have to listen to other people.

#worklife #meetingssuck

Monday is tomorrow! Woohoo. Unlike many others, I love Monday. It's a fresh start to a new week of hitting goals. I know I sound crazy but when you change your mindset, it can change your life.

Since I became an endurance triathlete I've had a great Sunday routine. After a long weekend of training and getting miles in, I see a movie at the Dolby Digital theater around the corner. Reclining chairs and PJs are KEY!

I really don't want to run tomorrow morning right now. I know once I get moving I will be happy to get the miles in, but the first 2 are always the toughest. Maybe I should make a new playlist? Hmm
