~getting fit and discovering a new way of life~

My family was never very active, I didn't like playing competitive sports, and I thought I'd never be an "athletic" person. Learning and practicing yoga in my 20s opened up a whole new world to me! I discovered what it felt like to be comfortable in my own skin and to train my body in new ways. The mental aspect of yoga has been incredible as well. It's on the yoga mat that I figured out that slow, steady, and with integrity "wins the race!

I love fresh fruits and vegetables and I'm picky about the quality of my food in general. I'm working on establishing solid healthy lifestyle habits.

I love hearing about other people's stories and get a lot from browsing the Motivator of the Day pages and Motivation message boards. Feel free to add me as a friend!! Let's help one another be the graceful and fit human beings we were all meant to be.

Favorite quotes:

BKS Iyengar on yoga: "So while you are sweating and aching, let your heart be light and let it fill your body with gladness. You are not only becoming free, but you are also being free. What is not to be glad about? The pain in temporary. The freedom is permanent."

"If it's going to be funny later, it's funny now."

"Laughter is the shortest distance between two people."

"The universe is a friendly place. I choose to believe."

"Trust the process."

"Do your best and leave the rest."

"It will all be OK in the end. If it's not OK, it's not the end."

"....stumbling on the stairs doesn't mean you have to throw yourself down the rest of the flight. "

"The cure for anything is saltwater. Sweat, tears, and the ocean."

"Transformation isn't something that happened yesterday or happens tomorrow. Transformation happens right now in this very moment, which is really all we have." - Jillian Michaels
