"Change is the essence of life. Be willing to surrender what you are, for what you could become."

My name is Danielle, but my friends call me Vix. I'm 25 years old and I am an athlete. I gained weight after the transition from pre-school to grade school and spend most of my adolescence overweight. It was through joining the field hockey team my freshman year of high school that I developed a true appreciation for the power and strength of my body. Despite being in the best shape of my life, I was not completely satisfied with the way I looked. As an adult, I've realized that I will never be a size 0 and that's ok! I'd rather be a strong, fit, athlete than a supermodel anyway :-)

Right now I'm working off the pounds that I've gained due to my desk job. I may not have my ideal body yet, but I am so proud of what I am capable of. I'm on this journey because I love myself and I want to live a long, happy life. I will succeed and I will do whatever it takes to get there.

~~~~
I know that all of you can reach your goals...that you can surpass your expectations for yourself. Every time it starts to get hard...every time you want to give up. I hope that you can tap into your inner strength. That inner strength I KNOW you possess to get you through. And if you ever need me, I am here for you. We're in this together until we reach the top.

~~My Mantras~~
The First 2 Rules of Self-Improvement:
#1 - It will be difficult.
#2 - It will be worth it.

~ Training Smart is more important than Training Hard

~ Nothing tastes as good as Sexy feels


"Run the first mile with your legs, the second mile with your mind and the third mile with your heart."

"It's very hard in the beginning to understand that the whole idea is not to beat the other runners. Eventually you learn the competition is against the little voice inside you that wants you to quit."

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." ~ Aristotle

"You must think of yourself as becoming the person you want to be." ~ David Viscott

"You've got to say, I think if I keep working at this and want it bad enough, I can have it. It's called perseverance." ~ Lee Iacocca

    So happy to hear from you :)
    I've started reading about Paleo because I am trying to reduce/cut out dairy. Thinking I eat too much and it affects my allergies, sinuses, inflammation etc. But overall, trying to eat clean. So I've gotten some books, tools for the kitchen like a VitaMix and taking some time to research. What do you think?

    Hey lady! Been thinking about you. I came across the amazing letter you wrote me that I had packed away when I moved and just wanted to say hello and hope you are doing well =) Plus I am reading up on Paleo and remembered you enjoyed it.
