JES' TEN COMMANDMENTS OF SELF-LOVE

1. Accept yourself for who you are at this very moment. Appreciate the BEAUTY that makes you YOU:)

2. Be thankful for your blessings. You may not have everything you want but, you have ALL you need.

3. Make sure your worst enemy isn't dwelling in your own skin. Remember that you're always listening even if no one else can hear you!

4. Vow to take care of your body & work out daily! After all, it's the only place you have to live! Make it a happier, healthier place to reside in. YOU are your best investment.

5. Stay true to who you are & you will ALWAYS be happy! Gather all your crazy dreams, far fetched ambitions & big goals & build a life you love & are proud of!

6. Stop comparing yourself to who you're not! Girls compete with one another. Women EMPOWER each other.

7. Forgive yourself for every mistake, every heartbreak & every time you've fallen short. Self-forgiveness is a necessary & vital step to finding your inner peace.

8. Remember that you can't fix yourself by BREAKING someone else. ALWAYS choose kindness.

9. Focus your thoughts on what is good, what is admirable & what is positive. Never let your mind become consumed by negativity & hate. Never let your heart turn cold.

10. Say YES to adventure. Say YES to bliss. Say YES to the impossible. You never know when your heart will stop beating. Take the jump & free fall on the way down if you have to. Live with no regrets.

Don't blame anyone or anything for the situation you're in or the problems you've encountered along this journey through life. When you choose to blame other people or outside factors, you are saying that you're POWERLESS over your own life, which is complete & utter crap - - The first empowering step to reclaiming your happiness, your self worth & your life is admitting to the fact that everything that brought you to this point was solely your responsibility. That is true power, that is true strength!

MY MANTRA:)

I didn't HAVE the time
I MADE the time.

I didn't have ALL the knowledge
So, I did what I KNEW.

Not everyone SUPPORTED me
So, I learned to support MYSELF.

I wasn't the most CONFIDENT person
But, my confidence came with RESULTS.

I have A LOT going against me
But, I have ENOUGH going for me.

I have PLENTY of excuses
But, I CHOOSE not to use ANY of them.

- -UNKNOWN - -

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

YOUR body is a work of ART!!! It IS the vehicle for your SOUL!!!
It is as BEAUTIFUL today as it was yesterday & as it WILL be tomorrow! Choose to love YOURSELF at EVERY size!!!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

If you want to be happy, you have to be happy on purpose.When you wake up, you can't just wait to see what kind of day you'll have. You have to decide what kind of day you'll have!! Attitude is EVERYTHING!!!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

LIVE & Let LIVE :D :D :D

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

& I hope that in whatever situations you face & in whatever holds you back, that you show up to the PARTY that is YOUR life & DANCE the WHOLE time!! - - Whitney Thore - -

My Goals:
1. To be an example of health & strength for my son.

2. To love my body at every size & to never forget all the amazing things it is capable of.

3. To end mindless eating!

4. To support, encourage & help to inspire my Spark Friends to reach their own goals!





My Program:
Dreams Only Die
IF You LET Them Starve!

It will hurt.
It will take time.
It will require dedication.
It will require willpower.
You will need to make healthy decisions.
It will require sacrifice.
You will need to push your body to it's max.
There will be temptation.
But, I promise you,
when you reach your goal,
every single miserable second will be WORTH it.

Other Information:
I intend to accept my body today, love my body tomorrow & appreciate my body always.

When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you'll be successful!

If it's important to you, you'll find a way - - If not, you'll find an excuse.

You are far too smart to be the ONLY thing standing in your way.

Stop wearing your wishbone where your backbone ought to be.

Destroy what destroys you.

A ship at harbor is safe but that's not what ships are for.

Be an ENCOURAGER; The world has plenty of CRITICS already. - Dave Willis

You ALWAYS have time for the things you put FIRST.

A comfort zone is a beautiful place but NOTHING ever GROWS there.

There is ALWAYS room to be a BETTER person! ALWAYS!!

True Success is liking YOURSELF, liking WHAT you do & liking HOW you do it.

    This Christmas,
    may you have the fulfillment
    of seeing around you
    the people you love the most.
    May you have the satisfaction
    of creating special memories
    they will remember with pleasure forever.
    This Christmas,
    may you feel peaceful and contented,
    knowing what Christmas means,
    and celebrating it your way.

    Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate;
    The first one said, "Oh my it's getting late".
    The second one said, "There are witches in the air".
    The third one said, "But I don't care".
    The fourth one said, "I'm ready for some fun!"
    The fifth one said, "Let's run and run and run"
    .
    "Wooooooo" went the wind,And out went the lights.
    And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.
    """""Enjoy this day with all your might"""""
    Remove the pumpkin cover, shouting out, "Oh me or my!!"
    And out jumps lots of emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    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!
