This past week I have been toying with the idea of competing in another bikini contest. A friend of mine is competing in a March show, and I am helping her prep and train for it. Giving her tips and advice from my first experience has gotten me excited again, because it really was an awesome challenge!

I ran my first Tough Mudder this past weekend. It was awesome!! So now I have officially completed the Warrior Dash, The Rugged Maniac (twice), The Fugitive Run, The Spartan Race, and The Tough Mudder. All of them have had their challenging moments but I'd have to say the Tough Mudder and the Spartan Race were the most challenging. A few years ago I took the challenge of losing weight and becoming healthier all over for myself. Since then I've been constantly trying to challenge my body and have found that these races provide me with a way to do just that.

I saw a post that asked,What healthy choice did you make today? If you can do something healthy every day, that is a start to a better way of life. The problem I see a lot is my clients trying to change everything all at once.Take small steps and work your way up to big ones. Before you know it, it will become a lifestyle instead of a chore.
