With the pumped up kicks, better run, better run…
Or at least my competition should!
I absolutely love this song…it just makes me want to move! Some may find the lyrics to be sketchy but I look more for the artistic component in music and lyrics and do not tend to be offended easily. Hope my competition has his pumped up kicks on because the boy is going to need em! ; )
The official friendly biggest loser challenge began yesterday and will end on April 1, 2012. We determined that weigh-ins will be on Mondays (although I weigh myself every day just because I monitor what foods affect me negatively).

I GOT THIS!!!
Yesterday’s deep thought…
I was putting away the last remaining remnants of Christmas feeling cheerful to reclaim my pre-holiday decor and as I was packing up my elaborate Christmas village I paused for a moment as I reached for the orphanage. Yes, my Christmas village has an orphanage (it also has military snipers thanks to my almost 16-year-old son). I felt a sense of peace come over me as I remembered the frightened little girl who once lived there, the little girl who overcame most obstacles set forth in her life that many would have succumbed to, the little girl who somehow managed to grow beyond the crippling bigotry of her new family and lack of diversity of a small town, the little girl who survived abuse and heartbreak, the little girl who used to sing “Take me home country road….”
As I placed the orphanage in its box and gently closed the lid I thought how far this little girl had come…from living in an orphanage to boxing one up. It suddenly occurred to me that I have the strength and willpower to get through any challenge in my life.
With that being said, know in your heart that whatever weight-loss challenge that you are going through or whatever other challenge you are dealing with in your life….you can get through this, you can do this!
