Week 1 - Here we go!

Full disclosure. I've been here before. Many, many times. So, what's going to make this time different? You guys. I'm hoping with some accountability and announcing my goals to the world - through this blog - I'll be too embarrassed to fail.

Another reason this is going to work and probably the biggest reason. The program. Along with Body Back and leader Colleen Varnum, I will accomplish my goals.

A little about me: I am a happily married, mother of two boys, full-time working, woman. I have my own real estate team through Keller Williams serving the Charlotte metro area (shameless plug) and I volunteer for my neighborhood and my son's school. I work crazy hours and spend most of my downtime at the ballfield with my boys and socializing with friends.

Historically I've been very good at making time for physical activity. I even ran a half marathon in 2013 and I've done sprint triathlons a few times. But, about a year ago I stopped wanting to move my body and it has been difficult to get back into it. When you're the slowest one in a class or the only one that can't do a push-up, it's not very motivating. For that reason, one of the things that I like the best about this program is the small group setting.

Above all else the hardest part for me is the food. I can very easily give myself a pass on eating healthy. But no worries there either! With this program I'm offered nutritional guidance, a food plan, shopping list, and recipes.

I look forward to sharing the next eight weeks of this program with you. My motivation for blogging about this is accountability for me. But, if it motivates you to to start a program and get yourself healthy - BONUS!
