::::Countdown to Building the New Me:::: --Quarterly Goals-- First Quarter: 1. Form better habits. 2. Focus on daily exercise/no procrastination. 3. Follow a healthier food diet. 4. Drink more water. 5. Stop Smoking. Second Quarter: 1. Run more. 2. Meditate more. 3. "Summer Fitness" with friends. 4. Think positive thoughts. 5. Lots of play time with Connor & Marin. Third Quarter: 1. Plan ahead more. 2. Be outside more. 3. Lose 20 lbs by my birthday. 4. Kick it into a higher gear. 5. Don't forget your WHY! Fourth Quarter: 1. Be strong (mentally and physically). 2. Try new things. 3. Be more optimistic. 4. Stay active with Connor & Marin. 5. Love myself more. ::::Over All Goals:::: 1. Lose the 77 lbs of fat, and gain lean muscle. 2. Inspire someone. 3. Live healthier because of good habits. 4. Commit and Conquer for the rest of my life. 5. Love life and my tribe to the the fullest. My goal at first wasn't really to lose a TON of weight, but rather to just feel good in my own skin. With that said, its hard to do when my body is my worst enemy. With all my health issues and now having a second baby on the way it hasn't be easy, but I have even more reason to get healthy now! I wanna be healthy and set a good example for my son Connor and daughter Marin. I plan to do small cardio while I heal from my c-section, then once doctor gives me the green light I will start out doing T.A.'s Metamorphosis and B.B.'s Les Mills Combat. I'd like to get strong enough to be able to push them in their twin stroller while I run at the park as they grow up. (Specially since I use to love doing 5k's at one time, that's no easy task lol). Those are my ultimate fitness goals, and I don't know if I can achieve them, but I have my whole life ahead of me to try. And that's enough inspiration for me. If you'd like someone to talk to, to keep motivated or for advice, I'm here for ya. Just drop me a line. God bless.

My Goals:
I have many goals, but my biggest is to look as strong as I feel on the inside. Being a person who suffers from Fibromyalgia I think that my body should really portray how I really feel, and that's STRONG! I'm a fighter! I don't let the daily pain get to me, I don't let people walk over me, I've dealt with a lot and its only made me an even tougher chick and I'm damn proud of it!!

My Program:
Before Due Date/Healing Afterward::
- Drinking plenty of water
- Walking as much as I can
- Squats
- Meditate

Green Light After Healing::
- T. A.'s Meta videos
- Les Mills' Combat
- Run, run, run
- Eat right
Goal Programs:
- Tai-Chi
- Cross-fit

Personal Information:
My name is Melinda, born and raised in Alabama. I'm 31 years old, soon to be divorced, we have a son who is fixing to turn one on Jan 30th, and our daughter is due any day now. Life's been more than a little rough lately (moving around twice, losing our first baby, losing an income, and now losing a husband), but it can only go up from here right? Lol

Other Information:
I have a lot of hobbies lol. Some of them include: Shooting guns at the range, photography, crocheting, hiking, camping, jogging, lifting weights, swimming and of course I gotta have my music and movies lol.

    I don't envy you the packing and moving. The good thing is you will get a lot of exercise while doing this.

    Good luck on your move.

    Hi. If you want/need a little push...consider joining us for an 9 week challenge.

    Why not join the X-WEIGHTED CHALLENGE? We're all ages, all fitness levels, all striving to live a healthier life. There is always something to learn from each other. These teams are also a great source of motivation! We can become healthier by working together and making new friends as we go. We compete in weekly nutrition and fitness challenges. It is similar to the Biggest Loser team. There are 3 teams that compete within the X-Weighted team. We do ATC (All Teams Challenge) various challenges (nutrition, fitness etc.) The main requirement is to post your weight weekly. The ATC challenges and/if individual teams have challenges are optional (however, very beneficial). If you have any questions, please let me know.
