Are there any other newlyweds out there who seemed to gain some weight / lose muscle / just be lazy with fitness after the Big Day?  Or is it just me?? 

I worked super hard all summer, up until the wedding on July 23, 2011.  I ate healthfully and worked out consistently…  I was, of course, very motivated to look my best.

I am thankful to have so many wedding / honeymoon pictures, because I would say I was probably in the best shape of my life.  Yes, it was only 3 short months ago, but it is amazing how quickly you can you can lose what you have worked so hard to gain! — Or should I say, gain what you have worked so hard to lose??? Either way…

Honeymoon ~


I love these pictures – But how quickly I have lost so much of the strength that they show.  I am ready to get back to fitness, and looking at these pictures reminds me just exactly what I am capable of… I can’t wait to get back to it!

I need to be motivated in the same way I was before the Big Day!

While I am planning to make this change in myself, I want to help others do the same thing.  I want to motivate others to work out with me ~ to get fit & healthy.  This my thing, I love talking fitness, I love nutrition facts, I love workouts — Just the way some people love fishing, or painting, or hunting, whatever… 

I am now an Independent Beachbody Coach and I know having this team (Team on FIRE) is going to help me stay motivated.  I am a 5th grade teacher, so losing fitness motivation is very easy, as I get lost in the extremely busy world of never-ending school tasks.  But I am counting on my team to keep me motivated, while I am motivating others!

I’m so excited! And I’m ready!  Health & Fitness is my passion, and I have been missing out lately.  Ready to make a healthy change and get back to it!
