A phoenix is a beautiful creature, who arises from the ashes of death or defeat, to be reborn and live anew.
That is what we are all doing here, right? Looking at the ashes we find ourselves in, struggling with baby feathers. We might fall out of a tree or two, or mess up a landing...but if we keep pushing, we can all become the beautiful Phoenixes we are made to be.
I am a proud member of the POWERFUL GOLDEN PHOENIX team of BLC 20. What does this mean?
I will be working out at least 3-4x/week.
I will be drinking water enough to drown a fish.
I will be eating healthy, cutting out fast food and skipping sodas.
I will not eat 5 meals a day.
I will struggle against the ashes I live in, to be reborn. My goal is 20 pounds by Christmas. I will do this!
I hereby commit to my Nest-mates and myself to the twelve week challenge. I will participate to the best of my ability in challenges. To follow the BLC & Nest rules and guidelines.
I will set a program of regular exercise each week. I will focus on challenging my abilities in the pursuit of elevating my physical performance. I will endeavor to be conscious of when I eat. I will also be aware of why I eat, and will, to the best of my ability, eat primarily to satisfy my nutritional needs as opposed to my emotional needs. I will do my best to make healthy choices by substituting foods that are rich in nutrition for those that are nutritionally empty.
I am hereby joining the Golden Nest to become the POWERFUL GOLDEN PHOENIX knowing that the strength of my character will be challenged for the sake of my health.
