Here I go again...(LiveFit Trainer)

So, I've started and stopped, and started and stopped the LiveFit trainer so many times that it's almost embarassing. Actually, not almost. It *IS* embarassing. What is wrong with me that I can't finish a workout program? I enjoy lifting, and I enjoy eating clean, so what's going on with me that I get halfway through, and don't continue.

The only thing I can think of is that I don't dedicate my all to it. I don't make it a priority, and I don't make my meal planning a priority. I do for a week, but it falls by the wayside due to laziness.

This time, I've decided to do video updates once a week in order to get even more motivation. There's nothing I hate more than watching someone's progress in an online forum, only to learn they quit. It's frustrating to me as an audience member, and I don't want to let anyone down the same way.

I recorded myself on my phone about a week and a half ago, explaining the reasons why I'm going ahead with it, including some reasons, so be sure to check that out (It's short). I'll also be updating everyone with last week's workout, and this week's workout in the same video, since it's the same workout.

This is me in a nutshell. I'm going to continue to ask God for his strength and guidance as I attempt to change my life and my habits, so my entire being can be a testament to Him. I ask that he give my the mental agility to get through even the days when I want to lounge on the couch, eating cookies.

Pray for me. I'm going to need it.


  1. Best of luck! as long as you are determined, it is possible!

I'm Moving!

Talk about a long hiatus!

So, things have been happening, or rather, things have been stalling, and I've decided that I need to actually do things in order to achieve what I want to in life. Where I want my writing to go, and what I want to dedicate my blog to.

When I first started MJA I had no idea what I wanted in a blog. I just wanted to write, and I hoped that the readers would follow me. And it took awhile, but you have! But I've been terrible at keeping up with this blog because I was trying to turn it into something that it just couldn't be.

I'm an author, first and foremost, and upon meeting other writers, I've learned so much and want to pass on that education to others, like they've passed on to me.

That said, The Modern Jane Austen isn't going to be getting updates anymore. This is a blog where I wrote about my life, some reviews here and there, and just a few tidbits about my writing journey. But it was mostly a confused mess, IMO, and I've …

September Musings on Writing

Another year has gone by.

I'm 20 days out from my 31st birthday.

I'm 24 days out from embarking on my first cruise to Canada.

I'm thismuch closer to finishing a second manuscript this year.

So, it's shaping up to be a pretty exciting month for me. I'd REALLY like to finish both manuscripts so that I can get to working on their second drafts before NaNoWriMo kicks off in November.

Yes. I'm using my thirties as I should've used my twenties: As someone who wants to write books for a living. Novel concept right?

But honestly. Six years ago when I started at my current job, I was under the illusion that what happened to Amanda Hocking would happen to me. Haha! I was so cute and naive when I was 25.

The last year or so, I've tried really hard to understand what it means to be an independent or self-published author. How you have to put your best work out there, not just the crappy first draft that you were just relieved to finish. That editors want to help yo…

Free Money! 3 Tips For Giving Plasma

Today, I wanted to talk to you about giving Plasma. Plasma is the liquid part of your blood that carries your blood cells all around your body. When you give plasma, they use it to make medication, and it also helps patients who have experienced trauma, have bleeding disorders, and more. I started giving Plasma back in 2007 when gas prices were upwards of $4 a gallon in Missouri, where I was living and needed all the extra money I could get. At the time, I got about $40/donation, but now I give through OctaPharma here in CB, with different pricing (It varies based on your weight).

It hasn't always been easy, though. A few years ago, I was unable to keep giving, and I couldn't figure out why. When I went back to try to raise money for an upcoming vacation the first few times I tried, my protein levels were either too low or at the bare minimum, so I thought I'd share some tips that help.

1. Three hours before you go, start eating something with protein.  I usually give in t…
