"If it is to be, it is up to me!"

I'm ready to get in the best shape of my life! I hope to someday become a certified personal trainer. I want to help other people who have issues with weight management. :) I am here to give and get support. LET'S DO THIS!

My Goals:
To get down to 150# and to become a certified personal trainer and an inspiration to other people struggling with their weight. Never lose hope!

I wanna get fit enough to be able to hike to and camp out at Havasu Falls in 2016.

My Program:
Eat healthier, drink more water, and cut down on the sweets! And find exercises that I love. Hiking, kayaking, camping, and other outdoor activities are at the top of my list!

Personal Information:
I have a beautiful home in Arizona. I wouldn't wanna live anywhere else! Except maybe Oregon. lol

My hubby and I are going to try to conceive baby #1 in early 2016, if I can get serious about my health before then.

I made a Christmas wish for you,
For a holiday full of pleasure,
Friends and family all around,
And memories to treasure.
I wish for you a Christmas filled
With joyous holiday cheer;
I wish you a Merry Christmas,
And a very Happy New Year!
