    Advice For a Teen?

    I am the master of excuses. I can find a reason not to do anything, but this is something I need to do! It's becoming a health problem... I'm only at week one. I want to get more "in shape" (and hopefully in the process get healthier) in about nine weeks. I don't...

    I Wish I Could Run...

    When I was around five or six years old, I was diagnosed with asthma. I had a really hard time running for long periods of time as a child, even though I loved to run around. I still love running, even though I can't run well. It gives me some sort of temporary thrill and makes...

    I Miss My Boot Camp Body!

    Geez, has it really been almost a quarter of a century since I was in boot camp? I sure would like to be as physically fit and trimmed down like I was when I returned home from training. I always had planned to maintain it, but that's a lot easier to say than it is to do.

    Best way to do it is to find something active

    to do everyday and stick to it! For some people it's the gym or sometimes it's a sport. Motivation becomes routine after a while. You can accomplish anything if you just stay dedicated and remain persistent.

    I haven't worked out in forever,

    so I gained some weight (not too much) and got completely out of shape. Tomorrow I'm signing up for some fitness, and hopefully once I am happier with the way my body works, I'll sign up for a dance class. Wish me luck!

    Losing weight was really hard

    for me . Especially when I was younger and was bullied in school about being over weight . I salute anyone on a weight loss journey because it's not an easy thing to do .
