Life is sculpted by the sum of all the little choices you make throughout every day. I do not intend to give you cause to agonize over every little decision but instead to see the beauty in this, the opportunity to improve yourself one day at a time, one change at a time. Looking at the whole, makes change too overwhelming, easier to just stay in your comfort zone….but ask your self “am I really comfortable?” More comfortable than change, most likely, but consider breaking it down into a bunch of little changes, start somewhere and build. Stepping (ok, sometimes requiring a solid push) outside your comfort zone is scary but so rewarding.
Take a look at where/who you are, what you like about where/who you are and then consider what it is you would improve. What’s stopping you? Life is not a destination but a journey for continued improvement and experimentation to create a better life and a better you.
What would make a better you? What would make you smile more every day?
Your 1st challenge is simply to get started, not with the biggest change or the toughest challenge but just get started, make one change today and conquer it! Take the strength you find within yourself with every little victory to move forward and tackle another challenge.
Where will you start?

Life is a journey, with plenty of side trips, sometimes sidecars and the unexpected over night stay or all-nighter. The key to enjoying the journey is to create balance and dedicate yourself to living a fit and healthy lifestyle so you have the physical and mental strength to tackle (and enjoy!) all that life throws at you. Learn to enjoy the paths you take wherever the little detours may lead you. View obstacles as challenges, find the inspiration to tackle them and drive forward with the strength you find in yourself as your conquer these challenges. Take time to celebrate the victories however small they may seem. Take time to smell the roses, feel the warmth of the sun, the warmth of a hug, see the sparkle in the eyes of a child….
Enjoying the journey requires finding balance, requiring some changes in your way of thinking, changing habits and stepping outside your comfort zone. Balance requires an honest look at yourself, the choices you make and the environment you choose to live in. Surround yourself with positive people, people who understand and support you as well as inspire and motivate you to be the best you you can be! Consider your outlook, be sure to see the glass half-full, focus on the positive!
Live your dreams, spend time everyday improving you! Stop letting life happen to you, grab on and live it the way that makes your happy!
I would consider myself “average” in that I am a mother, wife and work full-time outside the home with over an hour commuting time each day. I find/make the time to be/do all that and most importantly be ME! I have made my own transformation (I know, starting to sound like a lot of sites), I have learned that ME matters, my physical and mental health. I chose to make ME a priority and am sculpting a lifestyle that sculpts my body and allows me to live. Not easy….I, too, struggle to find balance which leads me to my purpose, my drive to again find that balance, continue to improve my own life, further sculpt myself and my healthy lifestyle, as well as guide and inspire others to find the best in themselves, sculpting a fit, healthy and balanced lifestyle.
Welcome aboard, it’s going to be a fantastic journey!
