Work Hard, Control Your Actions

Exercise is such a huge part of my life! I want to share that with the world. However, I must attain my goals and here they shall be posted.

The pictures above are a composite of what I am determined to look like by May 1, 2007. I started the first week of February and am beginning my 11th week. My program: "Afterburn" by Alwyn Cosgrove which does a wonderful job of burning the fat by using functional training techniques and is 16 weeks long. I think it's an amazing program- I am running now (was not able to before due to hip issues), have dropped 10 pounds, and my fitness level is crawling to new heights. I'm also still following it, which is the most amazing part. I am an avid "Body-for-Life" fan, but I never followed the program consistently for more than four weeks. Likely it allowed too much leeway for me, who wants something set up, ready to go, no thinking necessary. I have been utilizing (more lately than I did in the beginning) the "Eating for Life" program for nutrition, as it is well-balance and includes full meals in the recipes (as well as pretty pictures which keep me from being afraid to try new foods). I am far from perfect, however, but I am striving to reach new heights nutritionally and am headed straight for my goal- pictures posted above.

Below is where I'm coming from- my goal is not impossible, but it will take hard work and dedication on my part.
