Progress *PIC's*!!! And I'm flying OUT!!!

Sunday, June 26, 2011

Here are a few pics to share with you my progress! The first 2 I am about 180-185 and below I am 152 as of today. The first 2 include my oldest when he was a baby but I was 175-180 before I had kids so it's not just baby weight.

My whole world has been changed and I love it. I never in a million years would have thought that I would be a 'fitness' girl. I am thankful everyday that someone introduced me to Turbo and Chalene. It's transcended past just losing weight as now I have a whole 'club' of inspiring woman that I love being a part of. They challenge me to be better in every area of my life.

What's been my SECRET? I wish there was one but there isn't. It's finding a program you love and making small choices everyday that will get you where you want to be a year from now, two years from now, three years from now. It's loving yourself throughout the whole process because if you don't love yourself now that is not going to change just based on losing weight. It's making it work through busy seasons~ this was my last video blog on how to get through busy seasons~ .

Define your 'WHY' if that will help you! Mine? I want to be a healthy and engaged mom and wife. I always joke that Turbo is my 'happy pill'. I have other 'why's' but those 2 top everything. I am a mom and wife and they deserve me at my best. And I deserve me at my best!

The old meet new...

And my first ever bikini picture! When I saw it all I could think was- "Seriously you look good woman!!!!" Yes, I have a 5 and 2 year old! :-) (Had to borrow it from a friend bc I don't own one! Will be getting one next week though!)

Thanks for being a part of my journey Spark friends. I had no idea the day I found these 'pages' on here how many amazing friends I would make and encouragement I would find.

I'm heading OUT! This girl is flying to the USA in about 24 hours! It's been 15 months and I am so excited! I could explode at the thought of being with family! Our summer is going to be crazy~ CO, CA, ID, and SD! My man has a 2 week masters class, is teaching for 2 weeks, and is going to Wimbledon (plus 3 other countries along the way!) It's going to be a whirlwind!

Aside from seeing family what is MY biggest excitement for the summer? CAMP DO MORE with Chalene! I'm a VIP for camp and can't wait to meet her and workout with 500 inspiring people. Her lectures will be amazing for sure and I will keep you all posted with videos and blogs!

What are you reading for the summer? I just got the Compound Effect and am reading it with about 300 people I work with! It looks amazing from the first chapter!

Be gracious to yourself!

Always feel free to message me, I love being a part of this community!

    How great are your pictures!!! I loved seeing them. I am starting today again with TF since I haven't done it - almost a month - trip/craziness in my life and I truly miss it. But this is about you and your amazing success! You look amazing. I have more free time now - so will be participating on Facebook and all that. I am happy you are with your family - are you there to stay now or is it temporary? Keep me posted! Miss chatting with you. I am reading a book Last chance to Eat - by Mallett - about food and how it has changed....seems interesting so far. We were just outside in our pool - enjoying time with our friends and enjoying the backyard. Loving it and much more relaxed now that i have finished with my volunteer work.
Have a wonderful day and look forward to hearing from you!!

    Sarah look at you!!! You are a testament to how dedication, passion and of course frustration and will power can truly change a persons lifestyle. So often I hear people make excuses for themselves as to why they can't exercise or eat right, and you are a wonderful mother of two that has made time for herself and became a positive role model for her children.
You should be proud of yourself!! I know your spark family is!

    You're awesome Sarah! I'm not sure that even when I'm in my weight range that I'll have the confidence to put on a bikini :)

Enjoy your time at home and with family.

    Congrats on the transformation! You look stunning!

I just browsed your blogs about the bodybugg and was wondering what the bugg cost you. Would you mind writing my back to let me know - I'm intereste in buying one, but would want to know not only start-up, but the maintenance of it, in terms of batteries. How many days does a battery last and which kind does it use? Is it annoying to have to change batteries often -- that kind of thing
