Getting Stronger - mentally and physically everyday!

ughhhhhhh this was a motivational photo that I used to get my butt in gear after seeing it! Sometimes those pics are useful for something. Everyone comments "You are looking great - how much weight have you lost"
Why don't they say - you are looking like you've gained a few lbs???
( When it's needed)

Oct 2010 at 205 lbs
Life is so much easier and more fun at a healthier weight!

It has been a good week. I did my 2nd presentation about My Experience at The BLR and I educated 60 more people about Diet, Nutrition, Psychology, Motivation.  I am glad that the presentations are over so that I can start to focus on me. I need to get a good schedule going and work on some bad habits (going to bed to late is the biggest one)

Boot camp classes are going great. I did a free class on Monday and it was fun! I had an old friend show up with her husband and we had a good fun and hard workout.

We are in Canmore & Banff this weekend. I was supposed to have a nice Girls weekend away - but that fell apart - so I used the opportunity to have some nice family time.  I was going to hike up the Sulpher Mountain Gondola (right up a steep mountain 2500 feet with an average grade of 17%) but did not. Was scared about hiking alone with bears and the kids acted up and I didn't want to pay a lot of money to "reward them" with a nice trip up the hill. They came home and I looked at some bikers on the side of the highways on the way back to the condo and thought.......... I want to do that. Decided not to rent a bike but.......
decided to WALK from Canmore to Banff. Hilly and it was 16 km from our condo to where I was picked up in town.  I did it in 2 hours and 21 min (after I had done 5 km's hiking into
Johnston's Canyon) It felt great just to DO IT. I can't imagine ever even thinking about doing that before FR!

The scale is still going down. It's almost surreal. I get a glimpse once in awhile in the mirror and go..... is this really happening - fold my laundry and they are 1/4 of the size ... it really is happening. So happy! So worth it!

I have decided to do a Full Day Seminar called

  1. I'm so proud of you....you continue to inspire so many people. Keep up the amazing work.

  2. Thanks Lindsay. It's great to have the accountability also. I am hoping to be able to Pay it forward - what we've learned this summer. I am going to go to Las Vegas on Dec 19th - the 20th is my birthday so I am driving up to Ivins and going to do stop sign - this time running the bottom and trying for 53 minutes and enjoying a visit and a massage with Tyler - can't think of a better birthday gift!
