We’re talking about BHAGs today!
No clue what that means?
Jamila Payne from Soul Purpose Company is here to tell us exactly what that means and how she carried her “best year ever” into her now-extraordinary life. QUEEN of BHAGs right here!
BHAG stands for Big Hairy Audacious Goals, which is something we know very well here at Strong Inside Out. I’m always talking about dreaming...

Everyone’s experienced it.
That dreadful feeling of walking into a room of people you don’t know.
You’re the new guy. You’re the one new eyes scan for signs of weakness or recognition.
You’re the one who’s being judged for worth-of-breath-expelled, and if you fail, you’re sentenced to the torture of roaming the room alone with that uncomfortable semi-smile and...

Someone said something to me today that nearly knocked the wind out of me.
I’m staying in New Hampshire at the moment, readying myself for a four-in-a-rower starter this Friday (Dedham, Rye, Hartford, NYC), and chilling out with my soon-to-be-family.
Across the street lives a man that my fiance has been very close to his whole life. Almost like an uncle.
He’s out in his yard daily, trimming,...

Today, you stop waiting for permission.
Today, you start giving yourself permission.
So many people wait their whole lives for word to start.
They want a sign. They want a push. They want an offer.
Most of us will never get it. Most of us will never be pulled into our ideal lives.
Right now, I want you to realize that this moment can be the one you’ve been waiting for.
If you want to get healthy,...

Welcome TWLOHA blog readers! It was such an honor to be featured on the twloha site last week. If you missed it, please do check it out and give it a little tweet action if you dig it…
Hello from United flight #6453!
I’m on my way to Minneapolis from Denver right now, and I find that I’m experiencing this same feeling in nearly every city I visit. This bit of sadness to be leaving the...

Hello, everyone! The tour is off to a great start, and I can’t wait to go international with this thing (Burnaby tonight!).
And at the same time, I’m struggling.
The morning I left to drive up to Northern California, I got a text from my Mom that said, “Grandpa’s in the hospital. He had a seizure and they’re not sure what’s wrong.”
Luckily, Northern California is...

There’s a major surprise about 30×30 at the end of this post, so please do read through until the end!
PART I: BEFORE THE END
It’s 6:15 pm and I’m sitting in the same place, in the same position, in the same clothes as I was at 6:15 am.
It’s the last day of the campaign, and I’m sweating bullets.
So far, we’ve raised $2,748 in the last 13 hours.

I want to talk about something that applies to you today. Yes, you.
No matter who you are or where you’re at, today I’m talking directly to you. Just you and me.
There has doubtless been a point in your life when you thought everything you worked hard for was over.
You failed miserably at something you set out to do.
You backtracked on your healthy eating plan one weekend and felt like all...

I have so much to tell you guys about, and I just don’t know where to begin, so please forgive me if this post is a little mish-mashed. :)
Here’s what we’re going to be talking about today:
Updates and a few words on the movement
Sooo, I’m shooting a workout video… (like, a real one)
I’m a freakin’ Greatist!/30-Day Challenge Check-In

Today, I am starting a movement,
and I want you with me.
If you’ve been reading Strong Inside Out for a while, you know my story.
I’m not just a fitness trainer. I’m not just a happy girl.
I’m a recovered drug and alcohol-abuser. I’m an ex-clinically depressed and obsessive compulsive despairer. And I’m a survivor of the darkness of hope lost.
My life had...

Oh yee-ah. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, y’all.
Snow will be drifting down onto rooftops…
Children staring in wonder through glowing, nose-printed glass windows…
And you’ll be waiting in line all day to make sure your little one gets this generation’s Tickle Me Elmo…
Ah, the holidays.
Well, this year, let’s take all that pent-up angst from...

I’ve always been urked by a particular phenomenon that happens when someone starts getting “cool.”
There’s this pervasive notion that, once someone reaches a “superior status,”–whether that be in popularity, wealth, or power–that person gains the right to treat those who are on a “lower level” as less-thans.
I’ve experienced this superiority...

Don’t worry; I’m not gonna shove political propaganda down your throat today. I’m not really that kind of person.
I want to instead present to you an idea that gets a little lost around these times.
If you’re not an American, or if you just don’t watch the news, you may not know that tomorrow is election day.
Here’s how it goes: We walk into our booths, punch the...

Many of you know that I am unapologetically in love with coffee. Not just caffeine, but coffee. Really good, dark, rich coffee.
I have 2-3 Americanos a day (those are the ones with hot water and 2 shots of espresso) that I make myself using my beloved espresso machine (best. investment. ever.).
My adoration for coffee is not viewed as simply that, though. When I mention it to others, it becomes a...

Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to introduce you to the new me… about 5 pounds of hair lighter, and a bit more purple. :)
Why the new ‘do, Amers?
Quite a few reasons actually, blog post:
I’m sick of “Sweet Amy” hair. I’ve been wanting to get color in my hair for years, and have just been too chicken sh** to go through with it.
I figured, I’m still in my 2os...
