I would like to lead a healthier lifestyle for me and a my child. Recently I've developed high blood pressure and reflux. I was shocked to learn late this summer that I tipped the scale at 272. I was told that by losing 25-30 pounds I should not have to take meds to control my blood pressure. Since I've lost 10 pounds. It's about a pound a week but honestly I could put more effort in.

What's really scary is I realized my 9 year old daughter gained over 20 pounds in 2 years. I have made up my mind that THAT is NOT ok! WE have to be healthy! This is no longer about my pants size. It's about our lives!

A workout is 25% PERSPIRATION and 75% DETERMINATION. Stated another way, it is one part physical exertion and three parts SELF-DISCIPLINE. Doing it is easy once you get started. A workout makes you better today than you were yesterday. It strengthens the body, relaxes the mind and toughens the spirit. When you work out regularly, your problems diminish and your CONFIDENCE grows. A workout is a personal triumph over laziness and procrastination. It is the badge of a WINNER, the mark of an ORGANIZED, GOAL-ORIENTED person who has taken charge of his or her destiny. A workout is a wise use of time and an INVESTMENT in excellence. It is a way of preparing for life's challenges and proving to yourself that you have what it takes to do what is necessary. A workout is a key that helps unlock the door to OPPORTUNITY and SUCCESS. Hidden within each of us is an extraordinary force. Physical and mental fitness are the triggers that can release it. A workout is a form of REBIRTH. When you finish a good workout, you don't simply feel better... YOU FEEL BETTER ABOUT YOURSELF!
