August 2012 - Friends visited from Mexico, tried on wedding dress to take pictures with them, and had another lightbulb moment. Time to lose again.

June 2012 - Getting certified to be a "pre-post pregnancy fitness expert" Long time coming after being inspired here by all the moms working on getting fit!

December 2011 - Married!
July 2011 - new job! teaching!
June 2011 - Got engaged to cute boy!

Jan 2010 - I started running in December and haven't turned back! Can't believe it, but I'm amazed every time what my body is capable of!

Nov 2009 - I am now back in Georgia, recently having returned from living in Mexico for a year and a half. Before I left I quit my job, sold my car, moved out of my house, and left friends and family to try something new. I enjoyed the freedom and time to experience and learn lots of new things (and exercise). I'm happy to report that said awesome level of happiness and excitement for life is still here despite the fact that I am looking for a job. (Dating a cute boy)

Sept 20, 09- I went to a zumba masterclass and stayed after to become certified to teach "Dance Training" which is similar to zumba. I'm proud of myself for going out of my comfort zone. Also, leaving the class a guy offered me a job teaching it so we'll see! Only up from here!

Jun 2009 - I hit my first goal - something I didn't think would happen! For now, I've made another goal, but honestly, I am so happy. I'm currently trying not to let that satisfaction derail me. I've recently been facing lots of life changes, but I am happier and healthier now than I maybe ever have been.

May 2008- I did a biggest loser program at school and we weighed in every Monday. After my first full week on SP I was the top loser of the week! : )

And I'm a proud Wave Runner in the DONE girls seasonal challenges.

    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Spring challenge will be getting started the beginning of March. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Winter we had Help Santa Fill His Sleigh, Run Rudolf Run and Super Bowl. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Spring challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Thread.

    Just cruising through leaving everyone with some motivational thoughts for today:

    The Sagittarius woman wanted to be like her dad when growing up. She is a hard worker but really isn't a "housewife" since she really loves being outside. She's rather a "tomboy" at heart and needs to keep busy with something she loves doing since she is very smart. She gets along well with Libra, Leo, Aries, Aquarius and Gemini. She loves to buy gifts for others and she loves to spend money, but she will always work and make more money. She can have a weight issue, but there is no one more suited to be an athlete than she is so she doesn't have to remain obese. She can be blunt in her speech, but never ever does she say things like Scorpio to hurt others. She can have health issues with her hips.
    The symbol for Sagittarius is the Archer. In Sagittarius the Sun is idealistic and optimistic. Sagittarius is the sign that espouses such high principles as universal love and world peace. As this period of the year is associated with the spirit of giving and good cheer, the Sagittarius personality is recognized for its generosity and expansive demeanor.
    You are very gregarious, enthusiastic, and open, in all that you do. You have an ability to understand a broad perspective, and to see everything from a total point of view. Your foresight and an ability to visualize the big picture make matters work out well for you most of the time. Always thinking in broad abstract terms, you usually have trouble focusing on details that arise.

    In many ways you are spontaneous, but with this comes an inclination to be bluntly honest and frank, or at least, straightforward and much to the point. You never intend to hurt anyone, but the truth is all important to you, and you never hesitate to tell it like it is. Tact and restraint can be issues of concern, but you probably don't care. You are so independent. You can rarely be pushed an inch in any direction unless you decide the direction your being pushed is where you want to go.
    These blows are softened only by your warm, jovial and outgoing friendliness. Even when you stick your hoof in your mouth you can recover and show up as a winner. Often "lady luck" just smiles on you. Sagittarius has a happy-go-lucky, honest, cheerful, and ever optimistic approach to life; but then can turn right around and be so careless, restless and extravagant.
    You have a natural love of the outdoors and may develop strong enthusiasm for sports and outdoor adventure. Sagittarius is the sign most often associated with sports, and you are inclined to physical activity and active endeavors, particularly outdoors.
    Future-oriented, you rarely allow problems or setbacks to get you down for long. You put disappointment behind you and start working toward your next adventure. Never satisfied with moving along in slow lane, you want to set the pace on a grand scale. Whatever you set out to do, must be the biggest and best. You want to live life to its fullest. You can work well with anybody, accepting them for what they are. You are the natural, open-hearted extrovert, an easy person live and work with. Relying on your glibness and complete self-confidence, you are a natural in the world of selling. Still in the area of organization and perseverance you may need help from other factors in the chart. If you are like most Sagittarius natives, you can be down right irresponsible and unreliable at times. Your personality is such, however, that people don't get upset about it. It's that natural Sagittarius charm that carries you through the tough spots.
    Sagittarius is the sign of higher education. You live to expand your horizons in every possible way, wanting to see the world and experience it. You want to meet interesting people and try everything. Your curiosity is boundless and your desire for knowledge is paramount. emoticon
