Staying in Shape and Keeping my body Moving!
Right now I am on this crazy-butt agenda to become a fittest NIC I can possibly be.  I am in pretty good shape right now but I want to be stronger, faster and the best at 42 years.  For the past 2 years I have been up and down with my weight and not as strong as I used to be at 38 or 39.  I was constantly getting sick, having a hard time being fit and getting tired, faster.  Try being half of what you are and you have to encourage others every day. . .UGH!

So the challenge for me. . . to run more, increase my caloric intake and train smarter.  When I teach I have to workout with my participants, so I workout harder and if I'm still not challenged, I start to PUSH!  This weeks challenge was Monday night's  Les Mills BodyAttack.  I had taken the class before but could never keep up because I have terrible coordination, but I had to get that thought out of my mind and just do it!

It was my second time taking Attack in the past 3 weeks and let me tell you I had a blast and the next day. . .OUCH! Not only was I able to keep up I was able to finish the class strong. I am definitely going back for more and that's after teaching 2 classes the same day!

Another reason why I want to challenge myself,  my daughters.   They are both in competitive sports and I want them to understand if you want to be one of the best, you have to work hard.  I am not going to raise weak girls, mentally or physically.

Last, then I am done. . .I promise.  I have been blessed to have a body that works and can move.  There are so many people who cannot do what regular people can do whether they are handicap, sick or just not motivated.  There is no reason not to get moving body fit and keep it healthy.

Running and being fit is my life.  It has helped me through two pregnancies, depression and grief (along with a little prayer).  The reason why I do what I do is to motivate and hopefully help someone others.  If I fail at running/fitness then I fail myself (the base and core of who I am) and those around me.

What are you doing again to be the best you can be?
