I have been a member since May 8, 2009.

I considered, in this moment of uber motivation this morning, wiping the slate clean and starting over so to speak. But I believe history is important and my own history is telling in where I need to keep going and the strength I need to gain.

Since May 8th of 2009, I have lost a consistent 25 pounds. I have graduated with two Master's degrees. I was in, and then found the core to leave, an emotionally abusive relationship. I have moved. I became a teacher. I have come to realize I need to explore. I'm now in the most amazing relationship with a man who finds me beautiful and wonderful and how amazing is that?

So... I don't want to wipe my slate clean. In fact, I want to honor the slate, regardless of how cranky I get with myself at times for not losing weight or getting fit "fast enough".

I have many, many, many dreams and there's really absolutely no reason why I shouldn't be out there getting them.

My Goals:
Get FIT and HEALTHY by completing the 21 Day Fix and PiYo program. Then... the sky is the limit!

My Program:
Well, I've always had a plan... I've just never been too good at executing.

But I'm not a quitter!

*Get my pretty tushy out of bed and get working in the mornings - PiYo and 21 Day Fix workouts it is for a while!

*Stick with the 21 Day Fix eating plan, so I can train my stomach to learn PORTION SIZE!

That about sums it up. Pretty simply really. You'd think I'd be two pounds by now :P

    I will check it out morgan as I want something on my phone to help me keep track and make wise choices etc... I'm spending alot of time out these days with my Mom and by the time I get home I forgot what I ate etc... I rather do it as I go. I use to keep a small note book with me but not as easy these days as I have my hands full as it is with my Mom. Sadly some days I'm not eating till late so I'm going to have to try and pack snacks. I was going to check out your post on the intermediate fasting but didn't see it as yet.

    Hope you had a great weekend!

    BTW I think your plans to go to Europe are so exciting. I wish I did something crazy like that. Heck I may still do it. Think " Under the Tuscan Sun" but I will need to hit the lottery first. :)

    So I visited your new site Morgan and loved it. Your a great writer. I got thru about half of it so will be back and then of course for updates. emoticon

    Thanks for your offer for help but its my Mom's cancer. she beat the Breast in May and now just diagnosed with lung and now yesterday as we are prepping for surgery in two weeks they say it may be attached to her only kidney and a nodule in her throat.
