Gratitude Attitude
Posted October 15, 2010 by Christallin

January 2, 2011 is my 50th birthday. I have a goal to be a role model for other young women. As a former Mrs. Southeastern Michigan United States, 2008, pageant coach, judge and Life Coach, it's important for me to practice what I preach. What I've been preaching forever is that there is no reason to grow "older" so that you look bad. I love becoming older. Whenever I tell someone I am almost 50, their jaw drops straight to the ground. No glory on my part though. It's all due to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He gave me this temple and I'm determined to keep it well.

Right now I'm in a little race with time. I have the goal to weigh 150 Lbs by my birthday on January 2, 2011. I am 5'10" so this is my perfect modeling and photographic weight. I am doing everything I know how to do. I work out 5 times a week. Four of the five days I do 1 hour to 1.30 cardio. On Mondays I usually do just 45 minutes. I enjoy the Spinning class and find that I lose weight fastest when I do this class at least 2-3 times a week. My goal is to have a lean and toned look. As a fashion model, very pronounced muscle development is not the look I like for me. But I do want to be able to see plenty of curves and a few cuts and some definition. So I now do light weights and many, many repetitions. As I lose more fat, I will add a little more weight for definition and to keep making gains. I also enjoy the Powerflex class at Bally Total fitness.

I recently realized the importance of protein for muscle building. I'm a vegetarian and for the life of me couldn't figure out why I didn't weigh zero pounds just because I eat mostly fruit and veggies. Duh! Thank God for an athlete I ran into at the Hyatt Regency gym. This woman looked so good it was amazing. I know she was older than I am which made it even better. I asked her how she got her fantastic body and she shared with me the importance of eating clean, organic, and using a protein supplement if you're a vegetarian. Believe me, after talking to this sister, I had a whole different attitude. Another friend, Ms. Maryland Galaxy, 2011, Sherri Dennis, told me that I must increase my cardio to torch the fat. She only had to tell me that one time.

But that's what makes the fitness community so great and so much fun. I love the comeraderie of working out in the midst of others with the same goals. I love seeing different techniques and trying them myself. I love losing weight and wearing different attractive outfits instead of the same old basic black. I love the looks I get when I can tell someone is thinking, "Dang, she's here, again." Wow. This is too much fun to ever quit.

I'm new to this site. I came here to ask for advice on weight loss supplements. I'm interested in those that have an appetite suppressant, metabolic increasing effect. But you know, even if I never get that advice, I'll still participate. I really like the exercise tutorials. This is part of me and who I am. I'm glad to meet you and hope you are having a blessed day.

My word for the day was timely, "Rejoice evermore, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks for this is the will of God through Christ Jesus concerning You." I Thess. 5;16-18. Gratitude- A different type of exercise.

Working out with weights is a progression that will never cease to amaze me. With that said. I want to thank all the people who helped me learn that with the right program and methods that having a healthy and fit body is possible. I believe that anything worthwhile is possible with kindness support, and encouragement.

Im sure we all know the scenario҅I think that its worth repeating҅remember that any exercise or workout program is intended for individuals who are in excellent health. Prior to starting any exercise or workout program, it is important to attain the consent and advice of your doctor and at all times familiarize yourself with the exercises before beginning any workout program.

Great Fitness is Forever.

When embarking on a workout or fitness voyage, I believe that you realize the magnificent machine that your body is. At least that is the way it was for myself. To decide to be fit is to desire to make an attractive body part of your life. Though every lifestyle has its own idea of beauty, one characteristic all people share is that they are concerned about the way they look and feel. This is a healthy attribute ItŒs important to be pleased with the way your body looks and feels, because how you feel about your body mirrors how you feel about yourself. For myself lifting weights has helped me to learn to love every component of my body. Working out can tighten your muscles and dispose of all the loose, sagging flabby fat incredibly fast. And once that begins to occur youll find that you start to feel great about everything! However keep in mind itђs up to you you have got to take accountability օnobody can modify your life but you can adjust the way you think and feel about it. If you focus on what you are doing will get incredible results. I know this not only because it happened to me, but also becauseօit is science and happens to other people as well. Being fit can alter your life in positive ways. And I believe that something that can do this should be sharedThis is why I am so passionate about it. And when you notice and experience the difference in your body, you will too.
