It Gets Me Everytime!

On those days that I don't feel like going to the gym (or anywhere for that matter), I plug in my iPod and go right to my girl Brit Brit and then find this song!  It gets me everytime!  The words, the video (specifically Brit's abs & tight lil booty), the lyrics...I sure do love me some Brit Brit!  What songs get YOU everytime?   

And with that, I'm gonna have to agree with Brit - I AM stronger than I ever thought that I could be!

What 25 Means to Me!

25 could be a silver anniversary or
25 could be a quarter of a dollar or
25 could be a speed limit in a neighborhood

But to me it means disclipline, hard work, sweatscarifice and the half way point to MY after.

Can I get a hell yeah?

Being Challenged in Life is Inevitable, Being Defeated is Optional

For the last 10 weeks, I have been taking part in the KC Slimdown Community Challenge with my fellow Taking It All team mates.  I was already a few weeks into my journey to my ‘after’ when I was approached to join this challenge.  With over 1,350 teams and 6,939 players competing in the KC Slimdown Community Challenge, I realistically never expected my team to come out on top but rather took on the challenge as a motivator more than anything else.  I LOVED the fact that the YMCA that I attend was an official weigh-in location and I was able to weigh myself every time I was at the Y and it would calculate all the percentage of my weight loss.  I still have a few days until I have to do my final weigh-in and regardless of what my ending percentage will be I am proud of what I have done and where I intend to go.
Where are you going?  Is it where you want to be?  Are you challenging yourself?
