Happy 2012, everyone. Today marks 3 weeks since we returned from the Biggest Loser Resort at Fitness Ridge in Malibu. 3 weeks of realizing our future, making adjustments to our schedules and food regimen and gaining the commitment of the family and friends we have around us. I have to say that making these changes during the holidays has been hard it has also made me feel so much more powerful over the mind game that I have always played with myself.
Yesterday you said tomorrow.
For the last 6 months of my life I think I told my husband that I would be getting up before he leaves for work to go for a walk/jog/run...and I NEVER went. Well maybe a few times, but there was always something that kept me from going; the baby woke up 3 times, I couldn't fall asleep, I was too cold, or I was just not feeling it. When we left for the BL Resort we were handed a wrapped package, and the first night we were there we opened it to find that we each had a large envelope of hand written letters and inspirational cards to get us through. Family, friends, work partners and our life partners had written us letters and messages. Ryan had created a few inspirational cards that I actually had posted on my wall at the resort, a reminder of what I was doing there and the most impact came from that quote, "Yesterday you said tomorrow" Ryan was on to me he knew I was faking it. Saying but not doing. I am happy to say that has all changed in the last 3 weeks that we have been home. I have met my goals each week of working out 3 times. I created a series of goals before I left the resort. Three days a week seems doable for my life. I hope to increase that number, but for now it is working. I have been happier. I have more energy. And you know when your underwear is too big it is working!

So tonight I say tomorrow...and I mean it!
I am committed to changing my life and it feels amazing.
