No Excuses.

Before I leave in the morning I put my gym bag in my car that way when I get off of work I can go straight there. If you dont put it in the car you won't go.

Focus, focus , focus

Unlike days of old, Now,,,I focus on my new wardrobe- to-be, my great health benefits and staying very connected to those that are in my corner cheering me on. Accountability partners are a must.

I am the Maid of Honor in my sister's wedding this August....whenever I want to be lazy with my program I picture myself in that dress and what I want to look like and then what I will look like if I don't exercise and eat right.
