My 2013 Goal Collage. Got the goal, got the plan, no excuses, geared up, already left!





Canoeing in the Everyglades, camping at Hell's Bay. December 20, 2012. 195 pounds.





Headed to Mt. Fuji on August 23, 2008. 151.6 lbs. Felt great and want to get back here!



I have 43 pics in my gallery

Be a Force! Be the Movement!

While creating my goal collage, I came across a clipping that read, "a force that tramples down walls and eradicates excuses." As the words jumped off that paper, I immediately internalized the phrase. It became an integral part of my goals for 2013 and beyond. There is a lot to be thankful for, plan for, and do. I resolve to be the movement and make my "To Do" list a "To Done" list!

To fail to plan, it to plan to fail!

AUGUST 3, 2013

My Program:
To accomplish my fitness & weight goals, I am paying close attention to my nutrition and striving to eat a paleo diet. I have cut sugar from my diet, am drinking my 8 glasses of water each day, and eating plenty of veggies, fruits, and lean meats.

For exercise, I mostly walk or use my elliptical, but that's going to be changing.

Personal Information:
I am a married mom of three, a Navy wife, and a Navy veteran. I began SP in February '08 and lost a total of 61 pounds before becoming pregnant with twins. That was part of my goal for weight loss - to be better able to conceive.

After having the twins, I went on to be a surrogate for my sister - giving birth to my niece in August 2011.

My weight has yo-yo'd with the two pregnancies, but I'm ready to reclaim the success I achieved in 2008 prior to having my twins.

I love singing, music, reading, writing, exploring, being creative, spending time with family and friends, traveling and meeting people.

I enjoy trying different sports and though I don't do it as often as I would like, I really enjoy rowing, archery, and martial arts. In my heart, I want to be a runner.

Other Information:
I have had my ups and downs. I let the downs contribute to my weight gain over the years through eating emotionally. I won't detail the pains, not because I can't talk about them, but because I believe in practicing Philippians 4:8 which says, "whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things."

I will continue to dwell on the positive of life, of myself, my circumstances and count them all for good - for without them I would not grow!

Thanks for all the motivation this morning. I love you too! So we're doing a marathon or HALF marathon? When is it, and where? Half marathon sounds so much better in my head but extremely intimidating at the same time. The furthest I've run is 7 miles and it took me 2 hours. That was at my peak health. Ok done panicking. Have a good day!
