Hi. I am Ali... a full-time mom with a full-time job outside of the home. I have 3 very active boys and I want to be able to keep up to them.

I lost my mom during 2009, changed jobs & my husband became self-employed (and me responsible for his bookkeeping). For the past year, my weight has slowly creeped up with many feeble, failed attempts to keep it under control.

My "Ah ha" moment came when I ran into a girl friend who had joined a boot camp and I saw her results after 3 months. Jaw-dropping FANTASTIC! I wanted the same results so I searched out the info, sent an email and joined.

As I now have the "exercise" part under control, it is time to put the healthy eating and journalling under control. I have tried writing in my journal, but that just doesn't work for me. Then I looked at one of my "Spark" emails which I have been mostly ignoring for the past year and have decided to go the electronic route as I am on the computer for work or enjoyment almost daily.

So here I am on Part Two of my "Healthy Adventure".

    Sometimes the universe speaks to me. In this case, it was in the form of a magical email from the boot camp company telling me they've lowered the price and added some options. I can now take up to 8 classes/month (so, basically, twice a week instead of three times a week) for an affordable price. I'm so excited!

    Thanks for the boot camp website. I did love it, but can't justify the 5x-the-gym cost of it. The videos are a nice idea, but I really need someone in person yelling at me to go faster. :) I will go back to regular gym classes like step and body pump. Trick is to actually GO! Thanks, and keep up your great work!

    that is exactly why I wrote it, because the battle we fight isn't always the one on the scale. More often than not, it is the fight in our own heads that is the most difficult to win. Good luck with your journey! You are not alone in your struggles with image. emoticon
