Breaking Through

I feel like my weight or rather the way I view my body has been a struggle for me since high school. I have gone up and down since then but have really committed to live my life for me and to make the most of it.

In order to get all the things I want out of my life and accomplish all the things on my bucket list and live the active free spirited life I lived when I was younger I am ready to conquer this ...

I feel like my weight or rather the way I view my body has been a struggle for me since high school. I have gone up and down since then but have really committed to live my life for me and to make the most of it.

In order to get all the things I want out of my life and accomplish all the things on my bucket list and live the active free spirited life I lived when I was younger I am ready to conquer this battle.

I really believe that anything is possible and that we all have the power to change our lives.

Favorite Quote

"Imperfection is beauty.
Madness is genius
And it's better to be
Absolutely ridiculous than
Absolutely boring.
... And when it comes down to it,
I let them think what they want.
If they care enough to bother
With what I do,
Then I'm already better than them."
--Marilyn Monroe

"Progress. Just make progress. It's okay to have setbacks and the need for do-overs. It's okay to draw a line in the sand and start over again --- and again.
Just make sure you're moving the line forward. Move forward. Take baby steps, but at least take steps that keep you from being stuck. Then change will come.
And it will be good."

Ingrid, I didn't know if you heard about the head-on collision accident that I was in. I posted an updated blog about my current injuries. I'm so proud of you for making daily healthy choices and permanent lifestyle changes, resulting in fulfilling positive results! I'm giving you a STANDING OVATION for the goals you have achieved and the progress you continue to make! You are:


emoticon * S * P * A * R * K * T * A * C * U * L * A * R * emoticon


S = Set goals! Develop plans! Take action! Make progress! See results!
P = Promote regular medical checkups to achieve optimum health!
A = Approach each goal with optimism, dedication and completion!
R = Reduce stress! Eat healthy! Drink water! Exercise regularly! Sleep better! Have fun!
K = Keep track of nutrition intakes, fitness minutes, weigh-ins and body measurements!
T = Trust your choices, decisions and actions in all that you do!
A = Add variety to nutrition plan, fitness activities and personal well-being goals!
C = Create a non-food reward system for working hard to achieve healthy results!
U = Utilize behavior modification to break bad habits and challenge yourself to change!
L = Live life embracing healthy choices, positive changes and individual growth!
A = Assemble a support system to help one another stay on track!

"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal.
And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach.
But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day,victory won't seem so impossible.
....It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice.
Big things are built one brick at a time.
Victories are achieved one choice at a time.
A life well lived is chosen one day at a time.
Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!"
