2014 - let's ROCK our goals!!!

Hi - my name is Shanna and this is my attempt at tracking how I'm 'taking my body back' ! Come along for the ride if you're so inclined! I am constantly looking for motivation and creating my own -putting as much positive out to the universe as I can -what you put out there is what multiplies and comes back to you.
My motto: "What you believe, you can achieve."

I constantly challenge myself in the gym - trying all sorts of classes and weight routines and putting in 1-2 hours ...
Hi - my name is Shanna and this is my attempt at tracking how I'm 'taking my body back' ! Come along for the ride if you're so inclined! I am constantly looking for motivation and creating my own -putting as much positive out to the universe as I can -what you put out there is what multiplies and comes back to you.
My motto: "What you believe, you can achieve."

I constantly challenge myself in the gym - trying all sorts of classes and weight routines and putting in 1-2 hours most days after work, but my weakness has always been around 'food'. Nutrition -it really is 80% of the equation. I started out at 245lbs -then lost 75 lbs by kicking my ass in the gym over 3 years and putting a reasonable effort into healthy eating, but I relaxed a little too much and regained 25 lbs over 17 months. In October 2013 I decided to get busy with my promise to myself to figure out my nutrition, signed-up for a fitness and nutrition challenge with a body builder/personal trainer and took off 23 lbs and 21 inches in 77 days - lots and lots of hard work in the gym, preparing my food on Sunday for the upcoming week, not straying from my planned meals & snacks...even on all those eating occasions between Thanksgiving, Halloween and Christmas!!!!

My new motto "Stop holding yourself back".

My favorite quotes:

"Do or do not - there is no try." -Yoda

“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You, too? Thought I was the only one.’” (C.S. Lewis)

"You must do the things you think you cannot do." -Eleanor Roosevelt

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter." -Dr.Seuss

"Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm" -Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall." -Confucius

"Change the way you look at things, and the things you look at will change."

"When you do nothing, nothing happens.....you have to give yourself the potential to shift."

Personal Information:
I live in Ontario, married - no kids. My hobbies are varied as I like variety and move from one thing to the next to keep life interesting. I have taken Stained Glass courses, tried ceramic painting; tai chi; bellydancing; pilates; kick boxing; zumba; bootcamp; and my latest love, tennis -SO MUCH FUN! Who knew!?!? After a 20 year break (LOL) I'm instructing Step aerobics classes at the local YMCA. I enjoy anything creative. I've had my motorcycle license for 10 years now and traded in my 650 Yamaha V-Star for a Harley Softail Deluxe in Nov 2010 -in my first season on this new bike I logged 5000 miles during a trip to Thunder Bay Ontario!

Other Information:
Find inspiration anywhere you can - it's all around you, you just have to be willing to 'see' it!

Smile - it's contagious!

Happy Sunday. Hope you're summer is going great. Are you still on track to do all you can today to reach your goals tomorrow? If so, great! If not, what can you change today that will help you feel accomplished? One little thing. Drink more water? Cut out soda? Go for a walk? Small changes add up.
