Making - and Keeping - Fitness a Priority

For two years I sat at a desk and gained close to 20 pounds --feeling tired & heavy instead of energized & fit.

A low point was when TWO people within a week (friends I hadn't seen in months) congratulated me on my pregnancy. Umm.... not pregnant. Devastating!

Oct 2011 I joined a fitness studio, combining ST and cardio to get back in shape. It definitely costs money, but the accountability and inspiration has been worth it.

Oct 2011 I joined a fitness studio, combining ST and cardio to get back in shape. It definitely costs money, but the accountability and inspiration has been worth it.

What I've learned:
Working out alone doesn't work for me right now -- I need the commitment of scheduled classes. It's made all the difference.

Positive motivation and self-talk keep me going. I certainly get discouraged at times, and let it go as soon as I can.

Beer, salt and fat make me fat. Period. I struggle with this.

Workouts help me feel Fantastic! Spinning in particular changes my outlook dramatically. Every time.

A regular fitness practice is ESSENTIAL for me.
Otherwise it's a slippery slope.

Fire up your July! July is the perfect month to Ignite Your Spark! Your Motivator’s Firework Challenge Thought for Today is:
“One of the best ways to get through difficulties is to simply persevere day by day. Huge projects don't seem as daunting when we focus on one element ... completing that before we tackle the next phase. As Napoleon Hill said, "Most great people have attained their greatest
success just one step beyond their greatest failure.” ~ Chelle Thompson
