Yes, I post a lot of pictures of me and share my success with you, but I hope you also see the many times I fall down, that I don't reach the goal, that I had missed my mark at one time or another, and that I didn't start with this drive and determination. In fact I started at the other side of the spectrum. I didn't know that I wanted fitness to be such a huge part of my life but as Bob Ross used to say...that is what you call a happy accident.
I guess I want this Orange Visor page to be about the unthinkable. I want other people, especially women and moms, to know that you are capable of more than you know, that a bigger strength is within you and you can in fact move mountains. I know that we are told time and time again that the days are long but the years are short when we are out carting our kids about town doing errands and an all knowing older woman drops that knowledge on us. Well guess what...same goes for you. Our time is also short and we are not getting younger. Our kids will continue to grow and our schedules will always remain full. There comes a time where we just have to say okay I am going to do this for me...and for them...and be that healthier, happier you!
|following in my footsteps...literally!!|
So I don't know what this whole Orange Visor thing is about...but I know that I love hearing from people that are making those changes, that are believing more in you, that look at that picture of me in Camden Yards and ask who is this? Change is possible...and it is slow...and it is hard....but it is possible. It doesn't have to be running, or zumba, or bodypump classes, but pick something and stay with it! You have one time around on this track of life...you might as well give it your all and be the strongest, healthiest person for you and your family.
