The Voice In My Head That Says I Can't Do This is a LIAR

★ At the moment of commitment, the universe conspires to assist you.

★ Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit.

★ Remorse is the poison of life. ~ Charlotte Brönte

★ While wishing and hoping makes you a dreamer, acting and doing makes you someone who can turn dreams into reality.

★ Clear eyes, full heart, can't lose!

Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. ~ Steve Jobs

My current mantra (Aug 2014):

I will transform my body in order to create the sparkling, joyful, fun, confident, satisfying life bursting with wonderful people and amazing experiences that I want and deserve.


It's a little over the top, but I figured I'd go all out. :)

Basically I want to enjoy my life more and feel better about myself and my body. I also want to have more fun, wear cuter clothes, go on more dates, and become a fearless athlete.

In answer to your question on my blog: I stretch after cardio, when my muscles are warm. I read somewhere that stretching cold muscles increases the risk of damage, and I believe it because I can't stretch as well or as comfortably until after I've warmed up. If I'm not doing cardio, I warm up a bit, stretch and then strength train.

We are kind of walking this path at the same pace, aren't we? LOL

I'm REALLY glad you didn't take my comment as insulting or trying to be a know it all. I tend to have a "shoot from the hip" style that I've learned to soften. But last night I was tired and just typed it all out. So I'm glad you understood my intention.

And thank you for the friend add! I added you back. emoticon

Hi there. I think most rock climbing gyms can have their workers help you out. When I went, some of the workers were on the floor while people were climbing. You could always give them a call and explain your situation! They might be able to help you out or match you up with some other people who are willing to help you!

Well, I did my first walk/jog today. I was able to complete 2 3 minute intervals between walking! I was surprised! I felt like I could've gone longer and done more, BUT I didn't want to push myself. I feel GREAT!
