Its all about improving...

I just realized the other day that I've been working out at Recreate-Fitness, now, for 2 months. And this comes from a girl that has always HATED to work out! LOL

I've been trying to faithfully get my rear into the gym at least 4x a week and because I'm doing my best to accomplish this I've seen many, many improvements happen quickly over the last couple of months - totally awesome!! For example, I've gone from not being able to do any pushups (regular OR girl ones!) to being able to do a few good quality ones - Amazing! (at least to me it is! lol) - I am even doing some beginning push-presses for the first time in my life, too. Wow!! I never thought I would ever do anything like that.

Here is a picture of my back the first week that I started at Recreate-Fitness...I got the whole flabby arm thing going on and have some love handles happening around the middle...LOL!

But now, check this is a picture taken of my back just the other night after 2 months of solid workouts... My arms are beginning to define and my love handles are disappearing...NICE!

Anyways, I hope you've enjoyed this little peek into my accomplishments, thus far. ;) I've heard from many of my CTMH Sisters about how inspiring it is to watch me in my journey and I am just thrilled to have the opportunity to be an inspiration to each of YOU! So please keep your emails coming...I love hearing from you and feel blessed to be able to inspire you in your individual weightloss/exercise programs as well. :)

Determined to look fine in 2009 -

way to go shannon! you've done such a great job girl!!
so give a girl some help with the food part -meaning what you did to lose the weight? i know weight watchers before but what are you dong now and are you still losing - it looks like it. also, what is mona vie and where do you get the max ultra from?
as far as the exercising, i think i may be doing too much cardio - i wonder if there is such a thing. my weight is not coming off as fast as i would like and it's getting frustrating! ugh
you've been such an inspiration.
