OK Bahama Mamas, so this is where I'm at.

Friday, June 29, 2012

Hey Team,
Well, I have to be honest, I did not meet or even come close to my weight goals at all for this challenge, ut I have also been assaulted with health problems lately, which have literally prevented me from doing cardio or working out to my (former) full potential.

So, who does this mean? I need to adjust my goals for this next round with my Bahama Mamas. I want to be a valuable contributing member and hold my own, so perhaps I will focus on what works for my body right now:
Eating well and sharing healthy versions of my favorite meals (or let's be honest, DESSERT!)
Stretching daily, or at least 6 days per week (and log it)
Meditate and breathe breathe breathe through those painful times!
Keep sparking baby!

Are you with me Mamas?

Wokka Wokka!

    Well you did better than me in the weight category and I don't have anywhere near the hurdles that you do.

    I must say "ditto" to the sentiments expressed by Melissa and Jean.
    You are definitely an inspiration and the best kick in the pants to keep me on the track to being more optimistic and upbeat ..... mental highs being so difficult at times but so very very important in the scheme of things.

    Bren you are definitely our inspiration. Looking forward to rocking it with you

    Bren, you are my inspiration!! Every time I started beating myself up for what I can't do, I thought of you. You persevere thorough adversity, you stay positive, you make me laugh! I didn't meet my goals but I tried and so did you. We are Bahama Mamas for life!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Oh I didn't reach my weight loss goals for SASS either. But you inspired me to just keep at it. So I'm heading into ROCK IT with a new attitude and a different perspective on what will be considered a success.

    You are FAR BEYOND a valuable Bahama Mama Team member - regardless of what you are going through, you maintain a positive attitude and that my friend is an inspiration to all of us!!! You support us with friendship, laughter, and your naturally uplifting personality.

    We LOVE you Bren! Glad you are going to continue the Bahama Mama journey and ROCK-it with us.

    Hugs ~ Melissa

    I'm not a member of your Team but I'm sure they know you tried your best. It's hard to be 100% when you are more ill than usual. Just do what you can and don't worry about the rest.

    Bren you've been a RockStar all season! This journey is about so much more than weight. It's about keeping life in perspective, and finding the strength to keep going, when giving up would be easier. You remind us of that everyday. Because giving up accomplishes nothing, and in finding a way to keep going, and doing our best, we get closer to our goals, and we learn to appreciate our lives and make the most of each day. Thank you for being such an inspiration! You will ROCK this new season!
