Go Team Shooting Stars!

I'm a 35 year old mom of three who is currently at home with two little ones. Its my objective to continue getting stronger and to become more active. I would like to show my family leadership with healthier eating and fun exercise.

We suffered an enormous loss this spring when at five months along in my pregnancy, we learned our little angel had gone back to heaven. Afterwards, I endured life threatening complications. It's been difficult, but I am still here! Life is precious;) Its time to get back sparking, and heal by focusing on the positive. For the rest of this year I am making myself a priority, amidst all the diapers and goofy kid fun, so that i have more energy and feel good about achieving my goals as well as raising a family. Its time to focus on myself a bit so I remember I need looking after too! We are hoping to travel somewhere warm this winter, and possibly a wedding in Cuba in November '13, so these trips will be excellent motivation. Helloooo bathing suits!
Looking forward to connecting with others and keeping motivated to push on towards a healthier, happier, skinnier me.
Good Luck to all my fellow Shooting Stars as we glide across this galaxy towards our goals, together!

How are you - Are you signing up for the summer challenge? I found it very rewarding - Though I did fade a bit near the end - Too much getting in the way. 10 lbs in 8 weeks - I can handle that. Hopefully I can make it to the finish line for my next one.

Let's fire up our July! July is the perfect month to Ignite Your Spark!
Your Thought for Today is:
One of the best ways to get through difficulties is to simply persevere day by day. Huge projects don't seem as daunting when we focus on one element ... completing that before we tackle the next phase. As Napoleon Hill said, "Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure. ~ Chelle Thompson
