IMG_0090Fall has definitely been in the air this week with the cool weather, school supply shopping, and school e-mails.  I love having my kids home with me, but honestly I’m looking forward to routine again.  My workouts and my eating habits have not benefited from having all these crazy-snacking kiddos around (of course, blame it on the kids and not my self-control)!  I am reminding myself to be thankful for what I can do right and be patient with myself when I step off the path.  I wouldn’t beat others up over it so why should I do it to myself?  It’s important to look at the big picture.

I know this week at Miracles Fitness many of you will be taking a first step or maybe a re-step back into fitness with Biggest Loser.  In our 6 years I have seen so many of you working hard and even smiling when your work-outs are done!  I wanted to wish everyone good luck and best wishes.  Don’t give up!  Keep putting one foot in front of the other.  6 weeks can really make a difference and get you started in the right direction.  I think it’s important to also say that sometimes self-care has to be selfish.  Give yourself those 30-60 minutes and don’t feel guilty about it.  Your health benefits you and those around you.  You are worth it!

I heard the song Overcomer by Mandisa the other day and thought of all of you.  It may be coming from a different perspective than yours, but its overall message is amazing.  If you have a chance, click on it and listen.  I hope it builds you up and pumps you up for the next 6 weeks!!  Blessings!

p.s.  I was asked the other day at Miracles for a Ralph Lauren pants update.  Well, the good news is they fit.  Not sure if I met my goals because I haven’t been weighing this summer, but they did fit (not sure if they would fit now, but hey, they fit once!).   Thanks, Debby, for the reminder! : )
