Kickboxing sounds like a tough chick's work out but remember, you can modify any exercise so you are operating at your 100% ability, not some one else. Check it out, to challenge herself & to give us a vision to aspire to, Alyssa takes a leap in the air while everyone else is happily grounded. And in another shot she remind's us to march instead, if high knees is too much. Come get swexy, that's all that matters!

I haven't blogged or posted a progress photo during this journey, maybe because I doubted I'd actually follow through based on my past failures & big unfulfilled dreams. As my Fitchicks know, I live in baggy warm clothes and some have asked for a progress photo update. I started 12/30/13 & in a short time my posture & muscle tone has improved. The realization that I have the power in my mind & spirit to make choices that sculpt not only my body but also my life is FREEING! @shellimartineau posted a picture of a coffee mug that says "You have the same hours in the day as Beyonce" and others on Instagram show pictures of themselves & their 4 kids making no excuses to create outcomes & results they desire (I still think B got us all best with her clothing lines, perfume, records, family, PR & marketing, social calendar, etc).. Kristi asked me if my kids still knew me. Yes they do! I may not spend hours a day with them, but the time I now do spend with them is more loving & happier… Maybe because I'm happier, love myself more, & more proud of myself that I now know how to share it. Quality time is way more important than the drained, tired, grumpy/short fused yelling time I used to spend with them. I have more grace for their failures, shortcomings, & imperfections because one thing this journey is teaching me is no one is perfect 100% of the time (although I met a lady who has eaten the same things for over 84 days straight without cheat meals), but I'm not perfect & will never be…. It's okay because progress not perfection is all that matters. Don't quit, because you'll never know what could have been. #3monthstoshowtime #beginnerbodybuilder

We are still at it… 8am Sunday Stairs! This time we have a couple new brave newbies: Welcome Laura & Aubyn.. keep coming back & it gets easier. Welcome back Judy, you rocked those quivering legs! Diane & I decided to hit an old school garage workout… it really helps to have a definite set event & date to work towards to help focus us.. 15 weeks till stage time! Yes it's scary, but anything new & unfamiliar is. Thank God for friends who believe we will succeed when we begin to doubt.
