One of the most important lessons we end up learning when taking on our respective fitness journeys is just how STRONG we really are. We fight with ourselves, we put ourselves down, we growl, yell and cry in frustration, and sometimes we swear that we're going to give up. But we don't. We keep going, despite all of our negative thoughts. We keeping pushing for the payoff that we know we want and that we know we can reach!

On my own journey I've learned so much about myself, my strength and what I'm truly capable of. Most importantly, though, I've learned (but occasionally need a reminder) that the changes I'm making are for me and no one else. Your journey needs to be about YOU because you are important. That took me way too long to learn. I am important. I do matter. No one can change my body but me.

As long as we all keep pushing, nothing can stop what we will achieve!

My Goals:
My goals used to be solely number based. But, in recent months I've stopped weighing myself every week. While it can be an important number, what the scale says isn't the be all, end all number!

I'm aiming for looking in the mirror and being truly happy with what I see and feeling very comfortable in my own skin. That flat stomach WILL be mine one day!

My Program:
Right now, and probably for the next three months, I'm doing PiYo! I'm really loving the challenge it's giving me. It forces me to slow down a bit and learn a bit of patience with holding some of the poses, but it also totally wipes me out without being full of jumps and high intensity cardio.

Personal Information:
I've started a Facebook page in hopes of helping others take care of the one and only body they have and to help keep me accountable for taking care of mine! Please head on over there and have a look :)

    Ack! With all of the spark site changes this past week I can't seem to 'goodie' anyone.
    Pretend that I've sent you a beautiful holiday bouquet, and a giant hug!
    You are amazing,

    You know I'm a DVD addict right. emoticon So yes, I'm thinking about it. Bren, (JITZUROE) had sent me a link to check it out, ordering it from Beach Body, during a free shipping special. So it was only $60. But I also saw it on AMAZON with free shipping for Prime Members, at $72 emoticon Plus AMAZON had a "deluxe" version for $135 or $150 can't remember. But a reviewer said, you get an additional workout buying the deluxe version directly from Beach Body. But I looked on and didn't even see a deluxe version. So….. Just wondering if I should bother. A lot of reviewers said, it was a good "add on" program to P90 or more intense workouts, so I was hoping you'd know the scoop.

    emoticon Hey there Mal! How's everything going? Are you in full Wedding Planning mode? I think I remember you saying you were going to be a Beach Body coach? But I know you're a Chalean lover, so I was wondering if you've tried her newest program, PiYo?

    Thanks for your message on my comment section! :-D So great to hear from you! I really am comfortable and confident now, it's insane to think back some months ago and contrast my emotions then and now. It's night and day. I'm glad that some of those major stresses in your life seem to be passing, especially you passing your conversion exam!!! CONGRATS!! :-D I'll have to call you Doctor Kettleburn eventually, lol. Also good on ya for putting your need to eat healthier foods first, your man will thank you, even if it's just as a result of you making the meals for him! He better thank you at least, lol. Take care of yourself, thanks again for catching up with me!
