Breaking Through

Hi, I'm Ingrid, happily married 39 year old from Michigan.

I feel like my weight or rather the way I view my body has been a struggle for me since high school. I have gone up and down since then but have really committed to live my life for me and to make the most of it.

In order to get all the things I want out of my life and accomplish all the things on my bucket list and live the active free spirited life I lived when I was younger I am ready to conquer this ...

I really believe that anything is possible and that we all have the power to change our lives.

Favorite Quote

"Imperfection is beauty.
Madness is genius
And it's better to be
Absolutely ridiculous than
Absolutely boring.
... And when it comes down to it,
I let them think what they want.
If they care enough to bother
With what I do,
Then I'm already better than them."
--Marilyn Monroe

Spring has sprung, the grass has risí,
I wonder where the birdie is?
There he is up in the sky,
He dropped some whitewash in my eye!
IĎm alright, I won't cry,
I'm just glad that cows can't fly!

"What is it that you would like to achieve?
What is it that you wish to change, improve upon, create, express or experience?
If you ever want it to happen, now is when you must do something about it.
If it is your desire to see it come about, it is your responsibility to make the necessary effort."

Hello from the Countdown to Spring team! Can you believe that Spring is almost here and our challenge will be ending? I just want to encourage you to keep pushing yourself to do your best each day. Only YOU can make your goals and dreams a reality, so be sure to work hard for them. You don't need me to remind you that you're worth the effort, do you? Well, in case you do, consider this to be your reminder!
Hugs,
Pixie

ďCHANGE: Donít just talk about it, go out there and do it.
Donít just meditate about it, go out there and create it.
Donít just pray about it, go out there and take action; participate in the answering of your own prayer.
If you want change, get out there and live it."

Good morning from the Countdown to Spring team! I hope you are having a healthy, fabulous week so far. Can you believe that there is less than a week until the first day of Spring? (It sure doesn't feel like it in my neck of the woods, though!) Let's make the most of these final days of the challenge...and then keep that momentum going! We can accomplish a lot if we just commit to doing our best one day at a time. We are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal.
And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach.
But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day, victory won't seem so impossible.
....It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice.
Big things are built one brick at a time.
Victories are achieved one choice at a time.
A life well lived is chosen one day at a time.
Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!"
-Lysa TerKeurst

"Quit now and keep quitting.
If you are still wondering whether to quit, know that if you quit today, you will quit tomorrow.
Vince Lombardi said, once you learn to quit, it will become a habit.
Once we quit, our mind becomes programmed & will be ready to shut down any time it faces difficulty.
So let's fight now & keep fighting our way to victory!!!
Y'all with me?"
