An Amazing Day So Far ~ And Sitting Here Reflecting On Life ~

Thursday, May 31, 2012

Wow, what an amazing day so far !!!!

There has been so many amazing things happening in our lives right now.. a few bumps in the road too but being healthy and happy along with a positive attitude is so KEY !!!!

Things that used to just eat at me I can now handle and brush off and move on !!!!!

I'm sort in Awe right now.. Tomorrow my son will have his 8th grade dance and next week graduate and then it's on to HIGH School.... My daughter of course has already graduated, gotten married and is now ready to be a MOM.. But I have to say knowing my youngest is going to go to High School ! EEEK !

Where does the time go ???? Just seems like yesterday he came into the world !!!!!

But life keeps moving on with us... that is why it's so important to take the time for YOU .. I know it's hard as the Mom and or wife that we feel we need to take care of everyone else.. I did that for a VERY VERY long time.... and what happened was that I was so busy taking care of everyone else I let myself go and got up to over 300 pounds....

I remember trying everything and just thinking PLEASE let me just find the answer.. and trust me I tried it ALL.....

Then I found it... went on to lose over 175 pounds and there isn't a day that I don't stick with my plan, sure I cheat here and there, you've got to keep it real but you also have to keep consistent with what you are doing !!!!

If you would have told me when I was over 300 pounds that I would be coaching people about fitness for FREE I would have looked at you like you had 3 heads ! But I can tell you there is nothing that gives me more pleasure of seeing my challengers posting pictures of their success every 30 days.. its just awesome....

The bottom line is, it takes Work.. it takes sweat ... it's not easy but it's so worth it.. and as you keep doing the things day in and day out you see the progress.. and it pushes you for more.. that is the most amazing part of the journey... is reaching down and finding your inner strength !!!!

They are successful because I open my hearts and my life to them... the good and the bumps in the road... but I also share more than that.. a plan ... a goal to attain... I keep them motivated by posting new recipes on my private challenge Facebook page.. I take pictures of my food prep and give them instructions and ideas on how to create their own success !!!!!

Are you ready ?? Are you ready to take the leap into a whole new life !!!! Always feel free to shoot me a message at for more info on my groups !!!!

Eat Clean.. train Mean ... and remember you get what you give.. so give Good emoticon
