In Search of Me

It is time...I'm not who I was just six months ago. I am stronger and more confident... I am loving myself every day.

I have so many goals and dreams and desires. I am sensual and a bit crazy (when I want to be) and I love to dance around the house.

I am here because I like freedom to choose what works for me. I don't like being fenced in and though I have done that to myself over the past several (yea, 20 or so) years, I am breaking that fence down. I didn't build ...
It is time...I'm not who I was just six months ago. I am stronger and more confident... I am loving myself every day.

I have so many goals and dreams and desires. I am sensual and a bit crazy (when I want to be) and I love to dance around the house.

I am here because I like freedom to choose what works for me. I don't like being fenced in and though I have done that to myself over the past several (yea, 20 or so) years, I am breaking that fence down. I didn't build it that well to begin with, but like the parable about the large elephant with a small chain that they have grown used to and do not challenge, that is where my rickety fence kept me.

I'm bigger than the small square of space I've alotted myself. My life is bigger and better than it has been for years and it is just getting better because I am defining it. I'm DONE with other people defining me or even with shooting down my ideas as "I can't do that" or "it will take too long" or "what if I fail" HONESTLY! Who the hell cares if I "can't do it" at least I tried and learned one way not to do something, then I can try a different way next time... And really? "it will take too long?" My goodness, sounds like a spoiled brat to me. Who cares how long it takes as long as I am learning and growing and enjoying the journey...it is the journey not the destination, REMEMBER that!!! And the biggest one of all..."what if I fail?" So what?! Yeah, I said it. SO FRIGGEN WHAT?! You fail at something. Is that the end of the world? Are you going to get an F and pass out and die? What happens if you don't do it? What happens if you don't try? You have automatically failed yourself if you don't try. So even if you try and you "fail" if that is really a failure, at least you learned, because you cannot try something and not learn something at the same time.

So this is it...I'm doing it...I'm unleashing the beast within, the lovely, gorgeous, sensual, silky, ferocious, driven, and loving beast within.

Honestly, it is about Friggen time.

Personal Information:
I'm a married mom of two awesome people. Let me just say again, they are awesome, but I guess I am a bit partial. I am here because I need to find my awesomeness. I tucked it away behind about 130 pounds of fat and fear way back when. I know my awesomeness wants to come out of hiding.

I live in Central Vermont and I like all 5 seasons (yes, five - mud). :-)

Wishing you the very best on our 5% challenge.
I've been excited all week and looking forward to it.
I also signed up to do a 5K run that will benefit the disable Vets of Minnesota. There are four of us in my family doing it and it's a first for all of us. My son will be home from Afghanistan then and that was our driving force.
I hope your 8 weeks are very fruitful. I'll be around to cheer you on.

February is another one of those months when stores create magical candy-filled displays. Inside those foil-covered heart-shaped boxes festooned with lace, ribbons and fake flowers are chocolates that have been rattling around in their cardboard container since October--and they taste like it.

Treat yourself to something sweet and delicious that tastes like real food--crisp apples, juicy grapes, fresh pineapple, or a perfectly ripened pear. Just say no to cardboard.
