welcome, welcome 2011!


so i've just realized, more then ever, as i walk past mirrors, or look at pics of myself from recent shin-digs, whoa! i've really let meself go! yes, i have had 4 beautiful children, but i've not been holding myself accountable for my fitness level. i've been pretending to be athletic in this overweight body. i don't want to pretend anymore, i want to BE! i want to look like a runner...so, i need to run. i want, and will, take my health more seriously, as our bodies are GIFTS...it is MY responsibility to take care of myself.
i can sit and complain that i'm the heaviest i've ever been. that i'm sick of being the sweet chubby girl down the road. that i hate walking past mirrors, or sit next to all these fit little barbies wherever i go...so, you know what, i tell myself? GET OFF YOUR BUTT AND DO SOMETHING! faith w/o works is dead. you can't gain a testimony of the scriptures just by holding them. you have to ACT- you have have to pick them up and actually read them. well, same goes with my body. i can't look at runners magazines or watch others run to get a runners body.... I HAVE TO RUN! so, my friends, i am holding myself accountable and responsible this new year of 2011. i am what i make of myself!

Well said!!! You have to want it to accomplish it. If you want it bad enough you will make it happen! Only you can do it, while others cheer you on. Don't give up and quit when you're hurting or tired. Always think about why you're doing this to get you through! You can do it! I wish you the best through 2011!!! Love you Girl! =)

Way to go. I feel the same way: that I just imagine myself the way I used to be. But like you said, we have to actually DO something!!
I'm glad I found your blog! It's great. Love Heather Sayer
