"People often quit due to slow progress. They forget - even slow progress... is still progress."

"Goals. There's no telling what you can do when you get inspired by them. There's no telling what you can do when you believe in them. There's no telling what will happen when you act upon them." - Jim Rohn

My Program:
Current Program:

Starting March 8th I am doing T25!

Every day do 20 squats, 10 push ups, and 50 ab exercises

In general, get more movement in. Take more walk breaks instead of sitting breaks at work, find more reasons to use stairs, etc.

Personal Information:
I love reading, writing, watching movies, and going out to eat at restuarants. I love to cook and bake, do charity work, and I like to clean and organize things.

I love driving around in my car alone, listening to music and singing along - badly and loudly!

I love animals, but I get very attached. I am plant based and try to live my life as cruelty free as I can.

I love laughing and goofing around, am a bit of a nerd, and love being outdoors.

    I have to thank you for posting in your first paragraph the quote about progress. And I can't thank you enough. To prove it, see my gratitude toward you for that quote in my blog!!!

    I don't remember the last time I stopped by your blog, but I can tell you that I have been repeating that phrase to myself EVERY DAY since I read it. I whisper to myself, "even slow progress is progress."

    Then as I was waiting for your blog to load, I was able to read the image you put as your tiled background. Absolutely fantastic.

    You've sparked me.

    Yup, never too early to plan!

    I never thought about putting anything inside the pumpkins. I'll have to try putting hairspray to see if it helps! Yeah, it was just a shame last year cause the carvings came out really well and it lasted about a week! 2 weeks too soon! emoticon

    I love the idea about doing 2 sides of the pumpkins as well! (you're just full of good ideas! emoticon ). My kids love scooping out the pumpkins though. Not only cause it's messy cause I bake the seeds afterwards and they love the seeds!

    Will def. be trying some of the ideas you suggested with this year's pumpkins! Thanks!

    Phew~ Sounds like you have a busy weekend! Sundays are my "fun" days too. emoticon

    How exciting is it to know that you're almost done with Insanity?! That's a lot of sweat and dedication right there. You should be so proud! Whatever you decide to do next, I'm excited to be on the journey with you cause you rock!
