My first ever diet was at the age of 12. I was so unhappy being the heavy girl in class. The chunky girl. The thick girl. Ultimately the fat girl that I begged my mom to help me get skinny. Together we joined a weight loss program. I got my books and eating plan and over the summer I lost 15 or 20 pounds. It's interesting to me that I can still remember how it felt to go school clothes shopping that year. I remember my wardrobe from 7th grade better than any other in my life. I remember the outfit I wore on the first day of school and I can still see the looks on a other kids when they realized who I was.

So I no longer use DVD’s to do my workouts because I have the beach body on demand app. With this I am able to stream my workout in my living room, in my back yard, in the basement, and literally anywhere I want! Yesterday I was going through the site, and as the 21 day fix workouts are my favorites, I noticed new workouts I hadn’t seen before, “Remix the Fix”, so I tried one today and Oh my is this amazing!!
Let me tell you that when I hit play on this I didn’t stop moving the whole time, I was dripping sweat, and out of breath! When I came back upstairs my Pillip asked if I was ok because I was still recovering! I wish I had snapped a post workout selfie but today it was more important that I spend quality time chatting with my guy!
So Happy Flex Friday from me and my girl.
I am showered. No more sweat but I think I am still recovering!!
So my thoughts are that today is a great day to try something new and push yourself a little harder. After all we are worth it and function better in life when we care for ourselves inside and out! Blessings for a great weekend!!
I am staying strong and my body is sore! The good sore that lets me know I am doing something right! I did my Pilates fix this morning and it burns the side of my legs and stomach something fierce! I love this workout though because it is a nice middle of the week “break” in tempo and pace but my muscles still get worked!

It’s a good Morning with a healthy and yummy breakfast sandwich!!!
I am not a morning or breakfast person! In fact I am happiest when I wake up, drink coffee, and not function more than that for at least an hour. Sadly that means that my body starts out sluggish.

Today was one of those days where I woke up just not wanting to workout! No good reason, but I just wasn’t feeling it and sadly I was just kinda blah all day. Every time I thought about pushing play on my workout video I found a reason not to so instead I finally got myself out and jogged! It felt so good!
I drove to post and found a trail! It was dusk, my favorite time to jog, and it soothed my soul and hopefully helped me reset for another great day tomorrow!!
In the end NO excuses and I am working for a healthier me!!
I love this quote! It is the biggest truth I have always wanted to deny but can't!!
Today's workout tank is oh so tight and I would normally try to hide my tummy rolls. In the past I haven't been likely to show exactly how tight my shirt has gotten but the truth is we all live life and poop happens. I spent May, June, and half of July NOT working out and eating anything I wished!

It has been a long time since I have made a blog post. I have wanted to write and share so much over the past several months but the “rules” of blogging, which I completely researched before starting mine, were hard for me to follow. The one that I found most difficult was to be subject orientated and not to make my blog about too many topics. So I thought I was focused on the health and nutrition side of my life and I would daily share my thoughts and experiences but then life happened.
