I’m not trying to fit into a dress, lose the last 10 pounds, or be healthy enough to have a baby. I do not have a time frame goal for this journey – no big event, or AH-HAH! moment.
This is my life. And this is the lifestyle I choose to have.

I am not trying to get a perfect bubble butt, or 6 pack abs, or “summer arms” (though I wouldn’t say no to any of those btw). I am trying to find my real body below the layers of past insecurities and self-doubt.

Sometimes my body doesn’t want to cooperate and shed the weight I’ve been holding onto for years, but here’s the deal:
I’ve got every day for the rest of my life to wait it out.

I love my muscles. And I’m proud of my strong legs and growing biceps.
I love working out. I feel sexy when I’m all sweaty and gross and rocking out to music.
So really, even if it takes me a couple years to get to my goal, what does it matter to me? I’m just going to keep doing what I enjoy.

Every day.

My Goals:
ROCK it. Plain and simple.

My Program:
I'm working out 5-6 days a week, doing a combination of cardio and strength training.

My diet plan consists of portion control, healthier eating, and keeping an eye on my emotional eating. I don't go down for restriction diets - they just bite you in the tuckus.

Personal Information:

I love to read, play in the mud, sing into spoons and dance in the kitchen, hike, and spend as much time as possible with my family. I'm just a country girl living in New England ;)

    Was just scrolling through spark pages and came across yours...I love your attitude of not caring how long it takes emoticon . I'm finally at the same state of mind...I think that giving myself a feeling of pressure to lose so much weight by a certain time had set me up for failure in the past, so I'm finally to the point where I'm not beating myself up or focusing on how much weight I'm losing, but rather just focusing on how much better I feel when I get up and go for a morning jog/bike ride and how I'm encouraging my kids to put down the game controller and get outside to run around. emoticon . Hope you don't mind me adding you as a friend on here, and look forward to getting to know you more.
