Just tryin' to justify all my cute workout clothes...

I made it for the TurboFIRE Infomercial!! So crazy...

I love to exercise and I am not afraid to sweat. Unfortunately, I like to eat equally as well.
I know how I feel with the right foods in the right amounts. I just forget that once in awhile.

!!SP!!! has helped me so much with everything. What an awesome group of people.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by...

Make sure you say 'hi!' I'd love to hear from you!

~~~~February 2009
I am back up to 155 again.
I have tasted what 148 pounds feels like and it was sweet.....

~~~~February 26, 2009
I am at 150 and holding. I like -no love, how I feel at 150. I think I can do this. It is maintanable and comfortable...I think I am going to stick with this for awhile.

~~~~June 14, 2009
I am at 155. I don't like it. I ran this week for the first time. I see all these beautiful people on here and they are so lean and they are...well... running. It is time to try and mix that in also w/ my current kickboxing workouts. Good thing I don't have a full-time job. I actually felt thinnner the next day...weird. And oh that burn in my thighs the next day!! That is aWeSoMe. I've missed that. So that tells me right there that it is time to change things up...big time. I want the body I know I can have. Even 150 pounds isn't good enough. Their is no reason other than pure laziness, over indulgences and rebellion that I can not reach 135 pounds. Their are no rewards for being the best rebel.

"I will not binge or overeat today. I will not give my power over to food today. I will eat the food that my body needs to perform at its best, and not for pure pleasure. I can enjoy the foods that I eat, but I will enjoy them more w/o the guilt that I feel when I eat to much." (God-willing)
Ecclesiastes 5:5

"quit being such a rebel, I am only hurting myself"

"I don't stop at one serving"

"it" will always be available"

"when I reach my desired weight I can allow it"
(I am hopeful that I won't desire it as much)

"my workout this morning will be to burn this off, not to burn what I already have off"

"my class reunion is coming up this summer" (oh, I love my dress! I want my muscles to be the accessory)(okay, maybe a little bling...a girl has to have *sparkles*)
(raWked that reunion)

"get and stay w/n my healthy BMI"

"if I can't do this, how can I expect my FP people to do it"


Oh good one KITTYROXX...
"The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong." - Mahatma Ghandi ("Forgive" yourself for splurging on that slice of chocolate cake... WOWZA!)
(such a wise one...that Annie)


Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.

Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.

Over prepare, then go with the flow.

Forgive everyone everything.

What other people think of you is none of your business.

Time heals almost everything. Give time, time.

However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

Believe in miracles.

God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.

Your children get only one childhood.

If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.

Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.


Nike ~
"If you went running when you first started thinking about it, you'd be back by now."

"Others aren't staring at you. They're thinking how they should be running, too."

"Someone who is busier than you is running right now."

"The road to hell is paved with couches."

When God leads you to a cliff you must trust him completly and let go; only one of two things will happen, he will catch you or teach you to fly.

Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes; that way when you criticize them you will be a mile away and have their shoes.

"Don't be afraid of the guilt...
sometimes guilt is just what we need to remember where we do not want to be again.
Feel it. Own it. Take responsibility for it.
Then use that anger, sadness or pain and take it over your finish line with you!"


"You are going to eat every day of your life. You don't have to stuff in everything on your plate and finish the leftovers. You'll get another chance to eat soon" Veolia Gibson lost 252 lbs
