I am coming up on my first year anniversary; so my goal is to drop 12 pounds...the two that I gained back plus 10! That will put my new weight at 183 pounds...not bad!!!

Good Morning VIVACIOUS DIVAS!!!!

Well its Hump-day & this week has gone by pretty fast!!! So I did go exercise yesterday & did exactly what I said NO EXCUSES and I was only able to squeeze in 40 minutes but it was better than not going at all. So whatever you can GIVE, then give it!! You can not look bad at what couldve been last week or over the weekend but what can today be?

What ROAD are you going to go down today? This weight loss is just a Journey & YOU must decide where you are going to TRAVEL. Are you going to continue to Travel down Sweets Street, Bread Avenue and Carbs Blvd. Or take the road to Veggie Lane, Fruit Court or Lean Protein Road???

**DIVA TIP OF DAY**

What ROAD are YOU on? DISCIPLINE is the ROAD between SUCCESS and COMMITMENT! QUITING is the ROAD between FAILURE and DISBELIEF!

If you all don't mind I'll join in. I'll post my starting weight and goal weight for this 12 week challenge tomorrow morning after my weekly weigh-in. Thanks! I was looking for a challenge to help motivate me to do my best to shed some weight. Two pounds per week sounds attainable to me. I'll be back tomorrow.

HAPPY TUESDAY SEXY DIVAS!!!

Divas I know this weekend may have been filled with lots of good eating & some maybe not too healthy & cleaned your plate but today is a CLEAN SLATE!!!! Today & this week focus on what you want to accomplish & see done. I know that I have gone overboard & my pants are proving it today b/c they are tight & this is a emoticon OR WARNING Sign for me. I know that there are no excuses for me not working out this week & that I must get out there & get moving coupled with healthy eating! There is no room for excuses today!!!! emoticon

I did not have a good weigh in this week as I gained the 2#'s that I lost last week. Do you want to hear my excuses, didn't think so. ha. Now I have to work twice as hard to get them off again. But I will keep working at it. This is still the lowest I have been in a long time, so at least I can be happy about that.

Thank Goodness It's Friday SEXY, VIBRANT DIVA'S!!!!!


So yesterday was a just go day, meaning that I was just going with the day but not really accomplishing anything. So I was like seriously "Cassandra you have got to get with the program." Then I thought, If my body could talk to me ~ "What Would My Body Say to Me?"


My body would probably say "Why haven't you worked me out this week? Why aren't you being good to me, so I can be good to you or I want to get in some cardio & I don't want to be a lazy body, I want to be Active & Healthy on the inside." Or it would say "Come on Cassandra stop making Excuses about why you ARE NOT taking me to the gym or doing aerobics DVD; I need you to make me function properly and only YOU can MAKE IT HAPPEN!!" Lastly my body would say "Don't be so HARD on YOURSELF but know when to get that WHIP back Cracking!!" So today & NOW on I will listen to my body b/c I know what my body is saying & need to listen! So it's really nothing left to say but 'JUST DO IT!"


**DIVA TIP OF DAY**

"What is YOUR Body Saying To You & Are YOU Listening?" If you want your body to be at its BEST, then you have to treat it GREAT~ by Exercising (even on the weekends) & Eating Healthy Consistently!

HAPPY HUMP-DAY GORGEOUS DIVAS!!!!!

Well we are mid-way thru another week & this is the last Wednesday in this month!! So make the most of the last few days we have in August! I want to go into September keeping my momentum going & staying positive!! I realized yesterday that I really dont want to be in my 40s or 50s trying to still lose weight or even worst on medications b/c I couldnt get my health under control when I had the opportunity.



Yesterday, I was talking with a co-worker who is in her 50s and she said I wish you wouldve lost weight when she was younger & when I had the energy but now I have the clock working against me. She said her joints arent strong as they should be and its hard for her to workout. She was like so she is on medications to help with her pain & she was like that most of the problems she has is from her weight. This made me think that if I get my weight & health in order now then when I am in my 50s I will still be in good health & able to workout with no problems!


**DIVA TIP OF DAY**


Get your HEALTH in Order NOW so that when you are older, you can still be Physically FIT!

Had a great weigh in this morning. Lost 2 #'s, I am happy with that as I haven't been at this weight for a very long time. Now all I have to do is try to maintain it. That may be hard, as it has been a struggle to lose these 2#'s. All I can do is try and see how it goes.

CW = 149
WL for this week = 2#'s. WOO HOO :-)

Good Monday Morning SULTRY DIVAS!!!

Well Divas I hope you had a WONDERFUL Weekend. I know my weekend was rough for me but I appreciate all of the Divas who reached out to me & comforted me during my stressful & emotional weekend! I am making the most of today, this Monday, this day that I will never get back again b/c I cant go back in time and change the past but only what the future will be. So no more waiting on tomorrow or what I can do the next day but what about what I can do today!!


**DIVA TIP OF DAY**


STOP Putting Off Things until TOMORROW & DO what you CAN do TODAY!!! LIVE IN THE NOW!


DIVAS HAVE A SIZZLING MONDAY!!!!

I'm in start 8/24. hopefully this will give me enough reason to stick with it, hard to do on your own my start weight is 157, plan on making more trips to the gym and eliminate the careless snacking

( only those who risk going to far know how far they can go)

self control is knowing you can and deciding you wont

the only thing you can't do ....is what you dont think you can do!!!!!.
