Hi guys! Welcome to Running up a Mountain!! I’m Sierra and I am here to help y’all reach your goals while learning to love the journey, process, and climb. In order to fully appreciate the view, you need to appreciate the climb just as much! So many individuals want to reach the top of their mountain and have a great view, but are not willing to take the first step and endure the obstacles and climb. BUT……that does not have to be you! After reading my blogs, you can learn how to appreciate the climb and reach the top of your mountain.

What you can Expect

  • Advice on how to reach your goals and love the climb
  • Tips on how to live a healthier, sustainable lifestyle

Whether the top of your mountain is to live a healthier life, be more productive, or reach your fitness goals, I will be here along your climb, helping you throughout your journey! You will learn to appreciate the climb just as much as the view and enjoy the process that is needed to reach your goals.

In order to start your climb, you need to take the first step. The first step to reach the top of your mountain is to find out what is at the top of your mountain! Think about what you want to accomplish and succeed when you reach the top. Then, take the first step.

Find your goal. Take the first step. Appreciate the climb.

The Truth About Insecurities

The Truth About Insecurities

Hey y’all! Welcome to Sunday’s post. Today, I’m going to be talking about being insecure. Hope you enjoy and will subscribe! ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s pretty common to have insecurities and some days feel bad about yourself. Sometimes you look in the mirror and don’t like what you see. But something I learned is that everything is just in your head. The things you don’t like about yourself are probably unnoticeable to others.

Insecure? ยท MoveMe Quotes

I have to tell myself that in 100 years, nothing will even matter. No one will care/remember if you were overweight, skinny, had acne, or had perfect skin. What matters most is how you treated other’s and made them feel. You will be remembered by your actions, not your looks.

For me, I have rosy cheeks when I exercise or get too hot. If I wanted to, I could barely go outside and never exercise to prevent my face from getting red. But, I would be giving up something I enjoy and love doing. Don’t let your insecurities stop you from doing and being GREAT!


“I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” -Psalm 139:14

You are loved, enough, and important!! Have an amazing week and continue running up your mountain.

Therefore, do something that will benefit your future. You won’t get results right away, but eventually you will and you’ll be so grateful you worked hard!!

Hey y’all! Welcome to Motivational Sunday. I hope y’all are having a great day so far! Enjoy!!

In today’s post, I am going to be explaining why you should trust yourself!

Some of y’all may have heard the saying, “Get our of your own way.”

Well, seriously, GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY!! So many times, we doubt ourselves. We don’t think we’re good enough to do something. Well, YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH! If you never try at something, then you’ll never know what could have happened.

You have to believe in yourself!! Trust that you are enough because YOU ARE! You can and will do amazing things if you just have faith in your own abilities!! Don’t let your lack of faith in yourself stop you from being AWESOME!

Great things never come from your comfort zone. Push yourself and believe in yourself. Those are the keys to being the best version of you!

Hope y’all feel inspired! Go be GREAT! Have an amazing week and continue running up your mountain!

Why you Should Focus on your Path

Hey y’all! Welcome to today’s post. Today I will be sharing why you should focus on your path. I hope you enjoy and will subscribe!

If you’ve read my former blogs, then you would know that I say to run up your mountain. By that I mean go after your goals; and reaching the top of the mountain would indicate that you succeeded.

*not my picture*

I think it’s very important to think about the view, top of your mountain, and focus on succeeding. However, you also should focus on the path.

If you already know what you want to accomplish, then the next step would be to have a plan. You can’t run up a mountain only looking at the top the whole time. You have to focus on the path you are running.

There are many steps to success. You don’t just immediately succeed. You have to take many steps and work hard. Therefore, it’s not ideal to ONLY focus on reaching the top. You should ALSO focus on the path you are running. โค

Focus on the step in front of you and not the whole staircase: Notebook to  Write In for ... Journals - Notebooks for Women & Girls Size: 8.5โ€ x 11โ€  inch 100

Focus on the path in front of you, not the whole mountain!!

I hope you enjoyed today’s post! See y’all Wednesday. Have an amazing week and continue running up your mountain!!
