I'm here for accountability! LOL!! If there is something I HAVE to *report* to, I'm more likely to work at it. So far, so good. I really like being able to track everything and even though I don't post or read much in the way of message boards, this page works as a journal for it does have a purpose. :-)

Someone once said:
What goes around comes around.
Work like you don't need the money.
Love like you've never been hurt.
Dance like nobody's watching.
Sing like nobody's listening.
Live like it's Heaven on Earth.

May those that love us, love us.
And those that don’t love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if he doesn’t turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles,
So we’ll know them by their limping.

From one of my favorite movies of ALL time (To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar), some verses from a GREAT motivational song!! (if you've never seen the movie, I think you're missin' out!!)

Salt-n-Pepa: I Am The Body Beautiful-

Then im-a tell ya like this, and im-a tell ya this way
My bodys beautiful, thats all Im sayin
Bodies come in all different shapes and sizes
Youre beautiful, too, just realize this

Cant you see the beauty in me?
Open up your heart and set your mind free
Everybodys beautiful in their own way
Express yourself every day

And when you got joy on the inside it shows on the out
Be confident and youre beautiful without a doubt
Youre absolutely gorgeous, dont ya know?
So you got the body beautiful glow

My Goals:
My 24 y/o son is graduating from UIC in May and one of my goals is to be down at least 12 pounds by then.

My Program:
Hip Hops Abs. I love Shaun T. He keeps you motivated and makes it fun. I've been doing the exercises since 2/6/09 and in the first 2 weeks I could see a difference. Unfortunately I'm beginning to see a plateau and have to change things up a little more than I have been.

Personal Information:
My name is Dena. My husband and I live in Walkerton. A hop skip and jump from Notre Dame and a little longer drive for... The Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, Cubs and White Sox.

Other Information:
We have 4 kids between us, my 2 are the oldest at 24 1/2 and almost 21, and his 2, at 14 1/2 and 12 1/2 My son left the nest at 18, right out of high school, for the bright lights of Chicago and school, and my daughter just moved out last June at age 20. It was horrible. My husband's younger child (daughter) has lived with us since last Feb., and we also have 3 fur-babies and 2 feathered ones, so there's never a dull moment!
