Good to be back!

Here I am back at it, friends! We have had our last little one and I am ready to kick some butt and get myself moving and shaking to shed this weight, strengthen my body, and create a healthy example for my family.
Super excited to be on Team Tiger Monarchs for the Summer 5% Challenge!
I promise myself and my teammates to stick it through no matter what life throws at me in the next eight weeks(hello lake vacation I'm looking at you)and to help cheer everyone on in their own ...

I promise myself and my teammates to stick it through no matter what life throws at me in the next eight weeks(hello lake vacation I'm looking at you)and to help cheer everyone on in their own journeys.
I deserve the time, effort, attention and love this will take.
My goal is to get to onederland and reach 180 by the time the year is done. Its a lofty goal but it is attainable! Reach for the stars:)
I will move daily and record it here
My fitbit, zumba on the wii, walking, running with baby in the jogging stoller, and strength training with the hubby are my chosen exercises.
I am motivated by results, so I will measure myself every two to four weeks.
I will eat cleaner, following meal plans and planning ahead by shopping for recipes, on a weekly basis.
I will take a cooler with me when I go to town for groceries so I am not tempted by processed junk food. If all else fails, I will buy the salad with protein!

Thought for Today:
“Are we really going to spend our whole lives like this - feeling the wrong shape, and the wrong weight in the wrong skin?” ~ Emma Woolf

Remember to love yourself, including all of your "perceived imperfections" today.

“We can't be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don't have something better.”

Hi April!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
What Is Life?

They say it’s from B to D. . . from Birth ‘til Death.
So what’s between B and D?
It’s a C.
So what is C?
It’s Choice.
Our life is a matter of choices.
To live well . . . choose well.

“If you were given only one choice: To choose or not to choose - which would you choose?”

“It is the big choices we make that set our direction. It is the smallest choices we make that get us to the destination.”
