    Working On It

    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.

    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 .

    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!
