It's been a while since I've blogged =D I have a little time today, so here's a little update...

I started FIT Camp at my church and it has been going GREAT!!! 1st night 21 people showed up!! I was in awww, nervous and excited. From that 1st night there's been between 15 to 23 people showing up to workout with ME!! All ages are joining in from my son, 11 yrs old, to Senior Citizens - some in their 70's. We've started our 3rd week and it's been so much FUN!! I'm normally the quiet one, will not approach those I don't know. Everyday I'm getting more comfortable with instructing everyone. I'm enjoying figuring out our daily workouts and it's really keeping me on track. I do feel like I live at my church. I'm there Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday to workout TO Tuesday's & Thursday's teaching preschool TO Wednesday Bible Study TO Church on Sunday + I'm the Children's Director. No complaints I LOVE my life. And I feel so blessed.

I'm 3 weeks into The Biggest Loser Competition, too. I'm down 8.4lbs. I've been really staying on track with exercising and eating right. There's a lot of money up for grab and that's very motivating. With 6 weeks left I'm pushing to get 18 more pounds off....then I'll be half way to my goal weight.

I'm 3 weeks into my half marathon training schedule, too. Running is going GREAT!! My legs feel strong and I feel a difference in my running since FIT Camp has started. I'm really working on strengthening my core and back. My goal this year is to run the whole 13.1 miles. The HM is at the end of April, very doable goal.

Even without little league I'm still busy. My oldest is going to play on a baseball Prep team this Spring. Super excited for this opportunity for him. My husband is going to help coach a 10U team and my son will help with pitching. My youngest will play soccer in the Fall. He is focusing on getting some weight off and gaining speed during this off time. He is doing so good in FIT Camp.

The New Year is going as planned. I'm Making It Happen!!

    wow I am so motivated by you.. you have really kept up with your boot camps.. I know this time last year I joined on and I liked it and it worked but I think I always knew in the back of my mind I would never do another one. but after reading this.. I want to because I know they work
    and I love the idea of money being motivation as well
    Good Luck you will rock it
