Train as if there is no finish line --Unknown

Everyone is doing a great job!  We have about 21 active participants, and I am really impressed with the work that everyone is doing, keep it up.  The weight is coming off and we will be at 15 pounds before you know it.  This week's quote, reminds us that WE have to push for what WE want.  No one is going to lose weight/live a healthy lifestyle for us.  WE have to do it for ourselves, "I am the master of my ship, the captain of my soul.".  WE are the one's that make the decision what to eat.  WE are the one's that decide when to workout and for how long.  WE are the one's the smile when WE purchase a new pair of jeans in a smaller size.  WE are the one's that are in control.  Remember that WE can do this.  All we have to do is keep pursuing the dream that we want.  It IS possible and WE will achieve!

A huge woot, woot (hands in the air) to Annie who is this week's Star Of The Week, she lost over 4 pounds this week!  Way to go.  Look out for  a small feature on her later this week.

Did you know that women who sense that their workouts are easy regain less weight than those who find their workouts more difficult?  Like me, you want to make sure that the weight you have lost doesn't come back so here are some tips:
  1. Keep it fun - If you like to dance take a Zumba Class, love the water try aqua fitness.  Do something that you love then it won't feel like a workout.  Workout in places and with people you like to be around.
  2. Take it slow - Gradually increase the intensity of your workout.  You will not be able to bench press 50 pounds overnight.
  3. Fuel your body - You ARE what you eat.  Try to eat 5 or 6 small meals a day and drink lots of water

This week`s BONUS CHALLENGE: Comparing yourself to others can be a source of inspiration, if you do it right.  Instead of negative thinking, try to  think positive.  Like someone`s arms? Jot down 2 exercises that you can do to work out the part that you admire.  Also, look at yourself, is there a part of you that you are proud of?  Keep it lookin sexy.  Write down 2 exercieses to keep yourself smokin.

Did you know that men tend to work out their best parts and women tend to work out the parts of their body that need improvement. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Thanks again to everyone and their well wishes for my upcoming surgery.  New followers, WELCOME!

CARPE DIEM! Seize the day!
