I'm 34 years old. I have 3 children: 2 sons in middle school and a little girl whom I'm home-schooling for personal reasons. She's doing 1st grade work on ABC Mouse right now. I'm happily married to a wonderful man (abiggidy) who is also eating healthy and getting fit. I've lost over 100 lbs so far and have about 50+ more lbs to go and then want to maintain while still getting rid of body fat and gaining muscle. I've worked so hard that my weights at home are getting too light for some activities and I can't afford bigger ones right now because our family always comes first. In this journey to wellness, I've overcome depression/bipolar that I've had since I was 8 yrs old! I've been med-free since Spring 2013 and only take natural supplements!! I've never been happier or felt more alive! It is absolutely true that what you eat affects how you feel!!! The Lord is good and His mercy endures forever!!! Through Him, I can do this! Baby steps all the way works for me! Fit 4 Jesus, Fit 4 Life!!!! Sometimes, it's okay to gain WEIGHT (wellness, encouragement, inspiration, guidance and helpful thoughts).

My Program:

Not that I've read that much lately...

    Hi Liz,

    I hope you had a great birthday! Did you recognize your birthday wish? I noticed that you played "New Leaf Animal Crossings" so I looked through the game and saw that they used the same birthday cake throughout it and used bunny balloons a lot too. Of course I made your balloons pink and purple just for you!

    It is always easier to made a personalize birthday greeting when I have some personal information like your Animal Crossings.

    My birthday wish for you is...that this year is one of great personal and financial discovery!

    Foam rolling is great and it is not hard at all. The first few times you do it, especially on tight areas, it may hurt a little (not bad, but you feel the stretching out happening is what I mean by pain). I hadn't seen my trainer in 2 weeks and hadn't foam rolled in 2 weeks and honestly, I felt the difference. My muscles felt tight. Lesson learned for me to not skip it. Anyhow, here's a good video on how to do some basic rolling. Try it out and see what you think. You'll have to copy and paste the url into your browser.
