I have joked before and said "why have an original idea, I'll just use yours"...Well...
I haven't updated, changed or commited to anything for the past few years and I am inspired to do so today.
I talk the talk and it's time to walk the walk or I will remain "Stuck" for another year!
I am really tired of starting over instead of making progress and am ready to do the work that it entails.

My Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ is going to help me, strengthen me and make a way where there seems to be none.
He will be my "Personal trainer " and "Life Coach'...and is already my best friend ever.

I will be watching myself closely in the months ahead, and aim to put ALL that concerns me in the hands of God and trust Him for all I need.

    Karen R (ADALOUISE) from the Scarlet Dragons would like you to join her this month in the Breast Cancer Awareness Month Challenge! Breast cancer has touched the lives of so many of us, and we all know early detection is the key, whether male or female!

    So before you give the tatas a once-over, let’s get in a workout first! The exercises listed have a modifier with each, so you can join in at any fitness level! If there’s still something you are unable to do, please modify to meet your specific needs! The point isn’t to show your strength training prowess and be the best of the best. The point is to PARTICIPATE! Now let’s get a little hooter sweat going before we hop in the shower to do our self exams!

    S-50 SQUATS (50 Adductor/Abductors)

    E-50 FRONT JABS (50 Seated Biceps Curls)

    L- 30 LATERAL LUNGES (30 Seated Hip Extensions)

    F-30 FORWARD LUNGES (30 Squats, holding the back of a chair)

    E-50 JUMPING JACKS (50 Seated Jumping Jacks)

    X-30 PUSH UPS (30 Wall Pushups)

    A-30 ALTERNATING HAMSTRING CURLS (30 Standing Hip Flexion/Extension holding the back of a chair or wall)

    M-50 HIGH KNEE MARCH IN PLACE (50 Seated High Knee Marches)

    Do what you can, modify what you need to, but try your best, regardless of fitness level! If you’ve got a suggestion on an exercise you’d like to see incorporated into the challenges, please let us know!
