She’s BACK!!!

Back again!

My journey took a small hiatus (read: over a month or two) but I’m back!  I got a little detoured after dealing with the loss of my brother and all that comes with that.  Then I found other ways to be busy.  Then I felt like the weight was starting to increase so I had to buckle down.

Tiara Lanice is back! That’s what matters.  I do not quit.  Even if I disappear from the workout world.  In that time, my journey has changed a little.  I’m on a journey to a healthier me, but I’m not just on a physical journey.  I want an all around better me and in my absence, I’ve been interviewing for jobs in law offices and and AND…applying to law school!!  Yes, I have picked my #1 and will submit my early decision application – as soon as I stop procrastinating.  Mental and Physical.  Two journeys in one.

I don’t remember if I said it or not but, I want to thank whoever made a donation towards the arrangements for my brother.  I received a donation from a very kind person (thank you) and realized he isn’t someone I know personally.  So if you are a follower here, thank you so much.  Ever dollar helped somehow.

So back to the workout:

Today Me and the workout buddy did arms and cardio.  Actually, he did arms and cardio.  I just did arms.  The plan was to do arms, abs, and cardio.  That changed to arms and abs in the morning then cardio in the evening…I never got around to the last two parts.  No, it wasn’t laziness, I just didn’t manage my time too well.

Tomorrow is something else.  I think back and chest.  We shall see.

I’ve been gone for a minute

…Now I’m back again. Hello blogosphere! Life is getting back to normal and I get to go back to doing things like I used to. I will admit I fell waaaay off the healthy wagon. I will WILL get back on.

Here’s the thing, when life happens its so easy to lose focus and lose passion. But it is in those moments when continuing is most important. I only wish I had done that – kept focused and maintaining my passion. It may have been what I needed.

But I also needed some me time. So what’s been going on? I’ve been putting extra time in my social media management company. I have a new client in Long Beach. And yes they have kept me busy.

Thing to remember: NEVER ever be to busy for yourself and your health. That’s where I faltered. Don’t you do it to. But it’s a journey and no one ever said journeys were straight forward and without obstacles! I had to take a detour on mine and in doing that take an extended scenic tour of life.

I’m back. I plan to stay back and I hope that you are back with me.


I did okay-ish.  We did okay-ish. 

So, I’ve been talking about setting goals and making them realistic.  But there’s something I missed:


It’s so important to set a schedule.  That is the lesson I’ve been learning this week.  Last week was fine. We weren’t too busy, food was planned out.  This week was more of a struggle with the change in schedules.  My buddy and I didn’t really fall off.  It’s more like we fell back.

For example, instead of the three meals and three small snacks we’ve reverted back to two meals when we can grab it.  SEE!!! NOT PRODUCTIVE!  Today I ate a very late breakfast (brunch, really) and it took me almost three hours to eat it.  Why? Eating while I worked. NOT smart.  I know my buddy text and said he had only eaten one meal…that was at 7pm and it was a Subway sandwich.  Neither one of us have good excuses.  It just happened.  Now with his new, 2nd job the workout schedule will change.

Actually: It doesn’t have to.  My schedule is the same so I have no real excuse for not sticking to it.  This is for MY health and MY work will make it happen – partner or not.

Thursday is a new day though.  Everyday is another day to start fresh and fix mistakes.
