Finding my inner peace & happiness once and for all!

I'm a 37 y.o. stay-at-home-mom of 2 young kids (11 & 8) as well as 4 cats and happily married to my soulmate.

Exercise & healthy eating is part of my life since the past ~12 years! :) However, for me the motto 'Less is more' certainly works best! I prefer shorter workouts, usually 30 minutes of cardio and 30 min toning.
Balance is the key for me!

Balance is the key for me!
I'm a big believer of listening to one's body and want to be a good role model for my kids, showing them that exercise is fun and doesn't (always) have to be hard and endless! Even if I'm short on time and can only do 15 minutes of cardio, it's still better than not moving at all! ;)

I've suffered from an ED (bulimia and anorexia) from my young teenage years into my mid 20's and while I would like to say that I'm 'recovered', I don't think one with such a disorder ever will... Not a full 100%! The fear & doubts are always in one's head, may they be small or big.., as is the distortion of how we see our own reflection in the mirror!..

I *want* to find my inner peace & happiness; loving the body I have (not focusing on the # on the scale and not letting the # define who I am as a person!) and be thankful for being healthy and taking care of myself every day!

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

"A human being is only interesting if he's in contact with himself. I learned you have to trust yourself, be what you are, and do what you ought to do the way you should do it. You have got to discover you, what you do, and trust it."
Barbra Streisand


"What makes a person valuable is not their appearance
but their character and what kind of person they are.
While we all see the value of your physical change,
we also see the person that is already helpful,
positive and embraces life.
These latter traits are what really count and
perfecting the body is just the icing on the cake!"
(Author unknown)

This quote pretty much sums it up what I believe! =)

Another great quote I love:
"Maybe,you'll get everything you wish for. Maybe you'll get more than you could ever imagined. Who knows where life will take you ? The road is long & in the end the journey is the destination..."

Just popping by to see how you've started off the new year. I got my Jessica Smith bootcamp email yesterday! It looks like a fun and doable (as an add on for me) program. But maybe that's only because I haven't done it yet. She may kick my butt the first day. emoticon
