You can have anything you want if you want it badly enough. You can be anything you want to be, do anything you set out to accomplish if you hold to that desire with singleness of purpose.”

    Hi, Fae Thanks for visiting my blog. I understand what you mean, as I often am over committed. It's one of the reasons I haven't accepted an offer to be on a leadership team, although I am always very tempted to say yes. I was really pretty burned out after losing the 25# during our Awesome As Winter Challenge. It was a hefty goal and I was working at it 11 hours a week (and now contributes to some of my stress to get ready for my audits, though I don't regret taking the time for me. It had to be done). During our Spring Challenge, I found myself doing the minimum and really just maintained, re-gaining 3#. I needed an attitude adjustment and a commitment to get me through to our Summer Challenge. Biggest Loser will do that for me until our Summer Challenge starts up. Hope you enjoyed you r much needed vacation after a busy and lengthy tax season! Have an awesome day! emoticon
