Things I learned through my journey so far:
While losing weight and getting healthy and fit are my ultimate goals, I need specific fitness related goals to work toward in order for me to stick to it.
I actually enjoy working out - it just depends on the type of workout, having specific fitness goals, and keeping things interesting (I get bored easily).
I am a work in progress and it is O.K. to not reach every goal at the time I want to reach it. As long as there is progress, I am still winning.
Love myself and enjoy life no matter my size, weight, or fitness level.
Read food labels, cook from scratch, and have significantly increased my vegetable consumption.
A setback is just that. Dust yourself off and keep going. Only if you stop completely is when there is no progress.
The importance of non-scale victories (NSV) to measure progress. The number on the scale is just one of many ways to track your progress.

    So excited that you signed up for the Fiesta challenge and you got the clear from your doctor!

    Where do you take your body pump classes? I just started taking it at the YMCA last week and I love it!

    Thank you for leaving a comment on my update from Germany. We are in Stuttgart. What part are you from? I love all the markets, the bakeries, and butcher shops, the farmers markets. I am looking forward to getting a kitchen so I can actually buy some of this yummy food. I'm excited about that!
