Happy Fitness Chick!

"The name we give to something, shapes our attitude to it." ~ Katherine Patterson

Thus -- Happy Fitness Chick!

Well, it's the DIRECTION I want to be aiming for anyway! Sedentary is always calling my name, so I need to do all I can to fight it, fight it, fight it...

Hi! I'm Susy!

Wow! One of my 20 year dreams recently came true: Once DH retired and we sold our house (Nov 2011), we became RVing vagabonds 3/28/12.

(Sure didn't plan on the fuel prices of today though. Yikes)

Okay, a little about me: I love health! I enjoy learning. (The harder part is the implementation part. LOL)

I'm an ACE-certified personal trainer since December 2010. And also an ACE-certified Health Coach as of May 2013! Loving it!

I've worked for various gyms since 2000. Mostly it's been Curves Fitness for Women, but I also worked at Snap Fitness for a time, as well as a privately owned fitness center. I definitely MISS not working for a gym!!!

One thing is a bit ironic though: As I'm aging, I'm developing some severe ankle issues and can't do all that I used to do. Yowza! But... since I can't fight it, I'm just trying to figure out what I CAN do. (But I sure miss old-fashioned cardio!)

Below are quotes that I've run across and liked. If you like any of them, copy and paste! We need all the motivating support we can find!

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

THIS I BELIEVE:

**#1 (VITAL):
Get control of your thoughts to get where you need to go.

**Eat as nutritiously as you can.
**Eat more LIVING food than dead food. (Harvey Diamond)

**A body at rest is dying.
**Be a body-in-ACTION.

**6/24/11---To me, the more you can immerse yourself in the fitness and health lifestyle---including surrounding yourself with like-minded people---the more likely you'll be successful. That's my intention!
05/21/13 --- I still feel the same way!

Oh sister, I feel your pain. I was trying to lose what I had gained earlier in the week and did not succeed. I am frustrated and when that happens I want to binge. so far, none of that behavior but I am over eating by not planning ahead so I need to get back to planning meals. Push onward GF !

Thanks for the flowers and note GF ! I always love hearing from you. I can just hear that pretty accent in your notes. LOL ! I see a goal 212# and I am at 212.7 today. I need to see 40% gone so that is motivating me right now. I am tired of Sharon winning every challenge. LOL !! Thought I would try and make her work for the win this time. LOL !!! Keep pushing. I love seeing you moving more. Helps you to enjoy eating out without such a big gain also. (((hugs))) TC
