 I say "push yourself!" a lot.  I use it in every Spinning class I teach.  I use it in many personal training sessions with clients.  I even use it in regular everyday conversation with friends, family, and even strangers.  I do not say this to be cliché.  I say it because I believe in it, and I know that when you push yourself, amazing things can happen.

When I was a kid I was quite shy around those I did not know well. In fact up until just a few short years has it been that I have I developed the confidence to live MY life not as others see me living it, but as I see myself living the life I was meant to live. If you would have seen me 10 years ago I would have been back of the room sitting in a corner waiting for others to ask me to join in. I was not anti-social--I just did not feel as though I belonged. Sadly, I believe much of this had to do with my weight and the insecurity it brought to me.

When I was a little kid I used to think that anyone over the age of 20 was old and if you were old enough to be a grandma or a grandpa you were really, really, really old. It's so funny that when we are young we can't wait to be older and when we are older we wish we were younger. There is something about the human psyche about wanting what we don't have.

I remember when I was a kid every March/April the Wizard of Oz would show on TV. I know I am aging myself, but that was back in the day when it was a BIG deal to show it on TV--it was like the Wizard of Oz was a rite of passage to springtime. I often questioned whether this had to do with the tornado in the movie as springtime in tornado alley is prime time to hunker down.
