My name is Jessica and I am a 31 years old looking to get healthy for my family but more importantly myself! The last 13 years I have ballooned in my weight for many reasons. These days I am a mess of emotions some good and some bad, but I am starting my life over. I am in my 30's and I am so over riding the backseat in life! I am a mother of a beautiful 8 year old daughter Gracie. I need to step up and be a positive role model and teach my daughter the healthy road. This page will be about my journey the good the bad and the very ugly. Buckle up it's going to be a bumpy ride!
The program that I am beginning is the 21 day fix. I am still going to use Sparkpeople to track my food and fitness, but I am using the fix to learn correct portion control and clean eating.
I am going to exercise for at least 30 minutes daily using both the 21 day fix workouts and Jillian Michaels videos. I will also be incorporating fun family activities into our daily routine to keep my family healthy.
"I believe that we are who we choose to be. Nobody's going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself. Nobody's going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it. Nobody knows what you want except for you. And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it. So don't give up on your dreams." -Unknown
Just stopping by to encourage you to keep doing your best, Sparkfriend! You don't have to be perfect in order to make progress. Be your own hero today and every day, and keep fighting to reach your goals. It isn't easy, but you are worth the effort! Hugs, Pixie
"Transformation is not five minutes from now; it's a present activity. In this moment you can make a different choice, and it's these small choices and successes that build up over time to help cultivate a healthy self-image and self esteem." -Jillian Michaels
"Make a pledge to yourself right now, to declare that you are worth your time and energy." -Deborah Day
Just stopping by to wish you a happy, healthy and fun Summer, Sparkfriend! Keep making those daily choices that will help you move closer to your goal, one step at a time. Right now there are just a little over 90 days until the first day of Autumn. Imagine how much progress you can make by then if you just keep doing your best each day this Summer! Don't forget....you are worth the effort! Hugs, Pixie
"Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice. The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING. Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow. No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE." -Lorna Jane
Hey Sparkfriend, I hope your week is going great so far. Make the most of each day as it comes, and choose to be amazing! Put forth your best effort....because you are worth it! Hugs, Pixie
"Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long. Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals. No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders. How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come." -Og Mandino
Just stopping by to wish you a healthy week, Spark friend! If you fall down, get back up and keep pushing forward. I hope you know that you're always worth your best effort...because you really are! Hugs, Pixie
"Three of the most powerful words in the English language are 'I AM RESPONSIBLE.' It's tough to do, but when the day comes that you can say those words, believe them, and mean them, it will be the most liberating moment of your life. Taking responsibility for all of your results, for better or for worse, is taking back your power to create results in your life." -Tom Venuto
Its up to you to make your goals and dreams a reality, Sparkfriend! Take responsibility, and do your best each day to make progress. You are totally worth the effort, you know! I hope your week has been great so far! Hugs, Pixie
