Life is definitely about choices. Everyday, I have a choice. I can choose...

To sleep in OR get up early and get that workout in;
To hit that drive thru on my way thru town OR eat a sensible, well-prepared meal;
To moan and groan about all the bad things OR look toward the bright side, noticing all the wonderful things in life;
To sit back and watch my children play OR get up off my rear and play with them...

Life is all about choices. Each and everyday, we have the choice to do what can make us feel good and help us in accomplishing our goals...not just with fitness but in everyday life... or we can simply let life choose for us. The choice is always ours for the making. Let's make wise decisions and be the BEST that we can all be!!!

Glad to be back and reminding myself of all my goals and looking back at the progress I have made thus far. I've been away for a few months and I find myself excited to be back! This past year has been rough-especially the last 6 months. I have had to endure 2 back surgeries for repair of a herniated disk. (Yes, the same disk each time) Not sure how it even happened but it did. And of course, I don't want it to happen again!!! Right now, I feel good overall and looking forward to getting back to my fitness journey_ with slow, baby steps. I don't need any more set backs.

About me....I am a married, 39 year old mom to 5 beautiful boys. (They range in age from 4 to 22.) I am smart and beautiful. I hate that I waited til now to finally decide that I need to really take care of myself and that means ridding this unnecessary and unwanted weight!!!! I really haven't struggled with weight issues, per say, but over the years and after the last 3 children, my weight just kinda crept up and one day, I looked in the mirror and wondered how I could've let this happen. Too late for the "how's" and "why's", now it's all about the "going too's". I want my sexy back! I'm tired of looking in the mirror and not liking what's staring back at me. I'm sick of hiding from my husband. I'm sick of feeling tired and out of shape. I hate not having anything to wear. There's so much that I don't like right now, but I have the ability and the determination to change ALL of it and I WILL!!

My starting numbers as of the summer of 2011...

Weight 155
BMI 27.4
Neck 12.5
Chest 38
Waist 30.5
Hips 40.5
Arms 11.75

Although these numbers are OLD...I'm leaving them as a reminder to me of where I was!!!!
