Take this first week to familiarize yourself with the tools here. Once you get used to using them, it becomes easier to use them even when you are busy. Personally, I spent my first week learning to use the tools, and just tracking everything I was already eating and doing for exercise. It gave me a baseline to work from. It also gave me a chance to really decide what my goals were, and how to get there.

This site can only provide the support and the tools to reach these goals. You need to put the hard work in. Personally, I end up kicking my own butt every day. Feel free to check out my blogs to see how I kick my butt out the door to get my fitness in. I can tell you, once I am finished with my exercise for the day, I feel great. No more I should do this and I should do that. Instead, I feel accomplished, and able to relax and enjoy the rest of my day.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!

Hi my name is Lucy. I have 3 girls. They are my life. My oldest will be 12 in December, my middle will be 9 in December and in June my baby will be 6. I am not sure I will make it until they are all grown. Some one is always crying about something, everything I say upsets someone and I just dont know what to do. I have to be the parent but having someone mad at me all the time is hard.

100% of the shots you don't take don't go in.

( I heard the quote early in my career and it has stock with me. I love it. )
