Hey there everyone!!!

I am REALLY sorry for not posting as usual...its been a WHIRLWIND the past couple of weeks. (to say the least!! lol) I really appreciate everyone for hanging in there with me! :-)

So, to catch everyone up a little bit...I will probably be changing my title to something else, as I am deciding to put off the July All Women's Weekend show. However, I will still be going to the show, just not as a competitor! :-( I cant wait to see everyone there.

The reason I have decided to put the show off is that I have had a couple of serious medical issues that need my immediate attention and I am focusing on those issues right now. I REALLY REALLY appreciate everyone who has been here for me the last couple of weeks for means MORE to me than I can express!! Thanks to you for your support, prayers, advice, etc etc. I am at a calm spot and am just looking forward to doing what I have to do and to keep it moving!! :-)

I also would love to thank all the campers at Phat Camp Cleveland 2 weeks ago!! You guys ROCKED!!!! That camp was very special to me...I met a TON of wonderful women as usual, got the opportunity to speak and share a very important message about attitude and I also took away strength for myself during a really tough time. THANK YOU CAMPERS SOOOOOO much!!!! Love you guys!! :-)

I think that is about it for me. LOL I am down for a little bit but DEFINITELY not out!!! I am re-focusing and staying positive about whatever God has in store for me! :-) I do plan to compete this fall and I will still keep everyone updated on my progress in my current status...I still have a way to go to reach my goal, so I just look at it as extra prep time!! ;-)

As for the little ones...WOW...they grow WAAAY to fast!!! I cant believe my baby boy is getting ready to go into the 4th GRADE!! And my daughter is getting ready to be promoted to a "real" pre-school room at her daycare. I am SOOOO SUPER proud to be their mama!! :-) Both my son and daughter have had an awesome year at school this year!!! Today I actually went to help out at Field Day for Armani and tonight I have Milani's art show at pre-school. What a fun blessing to be a mother!!! :-)

Well everyone...enjoy the day and keep checking back. I am sure I will have a lot of things to post about soon!

In closing, keep this great quote in mind!! It will help you keep your attitude in check!

"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do."
- Eleanor Roosevelt

In Love and Fitness,

Well...this first week was GREAT!! I can't complain at all. Of course, last night and today I have been fighting off something and not feeling not great days!! But, overall this week was a WONDERFUL SUCCESS and I am VERY proud of it!! :-)

I have learned alot about myself this week and realized that I need to ALWAYS believe in myself and what I can accomplish!! Its funny how I teach my kids that EVERYDAY, but I don't listen to my own words of advice sometimes! :-( Anyone else with me here?!?!

The biggest thing I ACCOMPLISHED this week was doing 3 HOURS of CARDIO in one day (2 days this week)...something I NEVER thought I would be able to do (physically OR mentally!!). But I did in deed!! WOW! What a feat!! :-) Now I have done it and know I can and my goal is to continue to do this as needed.

The biggest thing I LEARNED this week was to believe in myself!!! Sometimes when you have had to continuously overcome barriers and MAJOR obstacles in your life you get to a point where you start to feel defeated and just DONE!! I have been there in that spot TOO long and MY ATTITUDE is what has changed the most for me the past week. I am starting to feel more like ME and I am excited to see what next week brings...ESPECIALLY training-wise! :-) Prepping for a show is a journey in EVERY sense of the word...physically, mentally, spiritually, TRULY get to see and experience many sides of you and people around you.

As for the family....I LOVE MY BABIES!!!! :-) They are getting so big and time goes by too quick when they are this age. My son and my daughter inspire me EVERYDAY to be the best mama I can be!! I am excited to spend some time with them this weekend and see/hear what HILARIOUS things they come up with. As I am sure it will be something comical!! LOL I think my daughter is 3 going on 23 with the things she comes up with!!! :-)

Have a GREAT weekend!! :-)

PS...AND YES, my sister DEFINITELY hates me not being able to walk the next day after leg training!! :-) LOL
