Return and Report.

So I've been on this "transformation" program for about a year now and I thought I should share, as I feel the results have been, what so many people are looking for.
It's not a quick fix, there's no pills or shots involved you don't actually buy anything (unless you choose to buy the book) it's all online and free. I even get text messages with inspirational thoughts and reminders to do something for myself.
It's basically, follow the assignments weekly and remove the things in your life that are hindering your progress. That may be physically, mentally, spiritually. In the end, it all works together and if you are lacking in one area, it shows up in others.

My before picture may not look bad to some of you but the sadness in my eyes and the pain in my heart is my true picture. I was absolutely devastated to even take this picture let alone publish it so you can see where my head and self worth were.

Still not thrilled to bear all in a public picture but for the sake of someone searching for some light, I hope you can see it in my eyes and in my smile.
I lost 15lb on the scale and went down to 17.4% bodyfat(bodpod tested. I went from being winded at a 10th of a mile jog to running 10k and walk/running a half marathon for charity.
I found an accountability partner across the country who has become a best friend.

I achieved one of my lifetime goals, something I wouldn't have admitted before but just wasn't in good enough shape to do it.

I am Happy and I would love to help anyone who needs it.
Go to and check out the videos, success stories etc. I have met most of the champions and they are everyday people like you and I. There is no talk of supplements, pills, buy this or that, just honest to goodness self reflection and goal setting with cheerleaders.
This is also in keeping with everything I believe religiously. That my physical body is a sacred gift, a Temple to house my spirit and I am here to overcome my weaknesses and to keep that vessel strong and capable. That I am here to have joy and experience. That my life should be filled with gratitude and free from past failings...... go check it out.

Picture me singing these words to the tune of Michael Jackson's "Beat it"

These are the pics that don't always make it on facebook but they do seem to provide us with the most entertainment.

You'll notice there aren't any of me! This is not because of my lack of wipeouts, merely that I am the one with the camera most of the time and trust me when I go down it is so fast and frequent, you'd have a hard time filming it.

Feeling Good

I've been working for a couple of months on a TOTAL transformation. This is new for me and something you may be interested in.
First of all, it's not a diet, quick fix or something you buy.
It's for all of us who have tried, succeeded, failed or gone back to old habits and end up once again, the same place we started or worse off. It's for those who believe they are likely to fail again.
This is about transforming on the inside. Allowing our spirits and emotions and physical body to work together.
If your interested go to
There is no fee, or spam. Just sign up and start challenge #1, it will give you some info and a task. It may be hard but you can give yourself a week to complete it then when YOU are ready you click on #2. There are 18.
I started slow but today I can tell you, I feel great. I am letting go of old beliefs about myself and changing some very low level habits. I am happy inside and it's been a while. Here's a pic to prove it.
Me, smiling despite flaws I would've been embarrased to show a few weeks ago.

Did you know?

There's a biggest looser ranch in St.George?
We were all excited to see someone famous and went inside but actually the ranch is for everyday folk who don't want to be weighed in spandex in front of the world.
It's gorgeous there and they have everything from, grocery shopping trips to food prep classes.
It's between $1,400 and $2,000 for a week and you can stay up to 4. wowser.Cool place.

6 weeks of chaos.

January at the Gym is a joke!!
I mean 3 days earlier, it's busy enough. The usual faces, staying on top of things, trying to have a healthy holiday. Occasionally you have to change up your time because of parties and late nights messing with your early start and that's fun to see new people, try new classes but every year, without fail, January brings about the multitude of New Years Resolutioner's. The day care is packed (thankfully I don't need that anymore)You need to be in your class 20 minutes ahead if you want equipment or a bike and believe it or not, the teacher is almost forced to go a bit easier as the class is dying half way through. I loved how my teacher commented on it :) She yells out in her usual smiley way
"what's wrong with you people? Your NOT tired! I"M FINE!! I guess you should've come in December!"
So it is, and rest assured by mid February all will return to normal.

My 5 o'clock shadow.

No I'm not developing a beard, although once in a while my tweezers would beg to differ. I am referring to the time of day when my motivation and body seems to just shut down.
It is, of course, the busiest time of the day for me, homework, dinner, quickly cleaning so as to make it appear I've been busy ALL day :) Yet my inner motivator (dressed in a striped, lycra, unitard and Reebok high tops) seems to have clocked off for the night. Maybe it's my 240 mg of caffeine I devour during the day that's worn off. I can't figure it out but it's like clockwork.
Any suggestions?
