Strength comes not from physical capacity; it comes from indomitable will. Gandhi 1869-1948.

My name is Charlotte. My kids are now all in school and I have time for myself. I just recently went off a medication that I had been on for three years and gained about 50 pounds during that time. I was eating cleaner and healthier than I had in years as well as working out but still gained weight. I have noticed that I am finally stating to lose the weight...still working hard but at least it is coming off finally. I know that being at a heavier weight doesn't change who I am but I feel ...

I have noticed that I am finally stating to lose the weight...still working hard but at least it is coming off finally. I know that being at a heavier weight doesn't change who I am but I feel better about myself when I am fit and healthy so that is my goal!! I am putting one foot infront of the other and doing my best. What the future holds I do not know but what a adventure it is sure to be. I look back on every day and thank God that I have had the strength and endurance to run every leg of the race that has been endowed to me. I look forward to more challenges and many more years to come. I know that I am going to live my life to its most grandest! This is to a incredible journey!

Fitness Minutes: 22,366

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is 117lbs but 125lbs is my more realistic goal. I'll see how I feel and how I lose. Hopefully my metabolism corporates and I lose like normal again! Not sure if my stretched skin will let me show defined abs but it is worth a try! Focus T 25 and Running are my workouts.
GOALS 2014
Count calories daily
Drink 10 cups water daily
Lose 4 lbs a month
Continue daily God time
Read 2 books in a month
Make it back to under a 10 minute mile

My Program:
I ran my first half marathon BMO Vancouver May 1 2011. It rocked! In the past I have used Making The Cut (a book by Jillian Michaels with some seriously crazy circuit training. I really did almost cry and quit on the first day. P90X and Insanity seemed really scary when I first started but after I loved the results and now nothing can scare me!! I have Hip Hop Abs and Focus T 25...I love Shaun T!I love running! My goal is to do my best and forget the rest!! I am trying to count and measure my food daily and drink enough water. I have a gluten and wheat intolerance so I stay away from that. Going low carb was easy because of that and now I don't have a swollen belly and a foggy brain...things which I didn't even know I had. I feel great and am finally losing weight. Yay!

Personal Information:
My name is Charlotte. I live in Canada and I love it! My husband and I have been married for 14 years in July. I have three children. My daughter is 11 years old and I have 8 year old twin boys. l want to be healthy and fit. (I really do want a smokin' hot body. My big goal is to have crazy strength and still look sexy! I want my children to see me as inspiration and strive for a healthy lifestyle. I eventually would like to see my family in family runs. As our children see what we are doing with our lives hopefully they will be inspired as well.

"But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will RUN and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint."
Isaiah 40:30-31

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
Matthew 11: 28-30

My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.

All my very best,

Hi! Thanks for the add! And congrats on hubby's promotion! I would have loved to partner up, but I just started a 10k training program so I'm not following a p90x schedule anymore :( I still do some of the videos sometimes for crosstraining. I'd be happy to help you out however I can!
