my daughter inspires me! she met JILLIAN MICHAELS!!!!

Thursday, April 25, 2013

so, my daughter goes to washington dc, for her advanced level constitution class (national competition)... and the kids are all walking around and they catch a glimpse of JILLIAN MICHAELS!!!! (BIGGEST LOSER TRAINER) (apparently, she as there in the Senate House before her presentation later in the evening somewhere in DC.) no one dared to walk up to her, EXCEPT my daughter! she taps Jillian (yeah, jillian and i are that close, i can call her jillian! LOL!) on the shoulder and asks if she can have a pic with her! Jillian says, "SURE!" grabs my daughter around the waist and click! my daughter has met one of my FAVORITE people EVER! so of course, she sends me the pic. i was so over come, i actually started crying! i know that lauren likes her, but i know she really did it for me. emoticon . probably a good thing i wasn't there, i would have been a blubbering mess! (LOL!) emoticon

before this, i had been waffling about when i was gonna start back with sparks, so afraid that i would fail, i didn't want to start. guess i forgot that not starting is WORSE than failing! emoticon

then, i see two different posts (on facebook) with two other Biggest Loser people! Dolvett (trainer) and Cassandra Sturos (from season 9, i think), i actually met her, she is from Michigan! both Dolvett and Cassandra haven't posted in a LONG time, but there they were, both putting up motivational posts!

so, i start thinking, well, MAYbe i could start tomorrow... but only if i can find ALL of my fitbit equipment. i say this since i was positive it would take me FOREVER to find! guess what? i found one part, (i say, well, i won't find anything else), then i find another (i say the same thing) then i find everything else! it was crazy!

so, i watched the first episode of my favorite Biggest Loser seasons (season 7, with tara costa , my FAVORITE player EVER!). seeing Jillian there, training everyone, and thinking my daughter MET HER! emoticon .

i went to karate today, and had SO much fun! and i learned so much! i have been eating right, today, also. i am gonna TRY to be patient with myself, and if i have a bad day, i am gonna brush myself off and get back to it.

i am gonna see if i can get the pic of my daughter and Jillian up, but i am not very tech savvy, but i would LOVE to show you! boy, that jillian is a bitty girl, but she could scare the crap outta me! emoticon emoticon

better get myself in shape, so i can met her too, one day! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Karma, Kismet, Fate, whatever you want to call it, it was meant to be, a moment in time - a message for you that now is the time to reset and rethink your future.

    Love the synchronicity of things! Glad your daughter has her wits about her to ask for want she wants! Have fun with Karate - I loved it when I could do that (after a couple of hip replacements I just don't move like I should anymore). Sounds as if you are inspired - hold onto that feeling...

    "not starting is WORSE than failing!" -- I love this!

    Maybe you should start by using a JM or a BL strength training video?

    P.S. Tara seriously is the best. And you should upload that pic w/ JM into your gallery so we can see it!

    Funny!! I've always said that Jillian ( I'll call her that eventhough we are not BFF's like you are) LOL!! scares the crap out of me too!! She just seems to mean, but I have learned that that is how she has to be to get people to understand where they have come from or why and where they are going. I know she is a very caring and giving person and that she is an excellent trainer. I was surprised one day I saw a picture of her in her early days and she was quite overweight and out of shape. She really transformed herself. Kudos to you for finding all your stuff and for starting to get back on track!! Just imagine Jillian yelling at you and the end results..... a new healthier, more fit you!! Karate.... that sounds pretty impressive!! emoticon emoticon
