It's Me Time, It's My Time!

I'm kind of a quiet person, don't like a lot of hipe.  I live on a farm in ND with my husband and two sons. We do the usual things of chasing our kids to their school functions and sports including basketball, baseball, football, and hockey, which I enjoy very much.  I work from home, so any time out and with friends is great for me.
I enjoy golfing in the summer, landscaping my yard, and I've become obsessed with clean eating.
I have never been overweight. Yah sure I've gained the 10-15 pounds here and there, but it's always come back off with a little weight lifting, but that changed when I turned 36 or so.  I am almost 41 now and it's harder and harder to keep that extra weight off.  I have the tools, I have the know-how, I know what to do, and I do it......but 100%?  My friend Kim (who I'm very accountable to and vice versa) started following Dustin Maher's Fit Mom's For Life.  It focuses on weight lifting, which I love.  I also lead a group of ladies in town early in the mornings 5 days a week in strength training.  But am I giving it 100%?  No, and it's time to!  I get inspired by other people and their huge transformations of being overweight to being fit. Jennifer, Carolyn, Amy - I'm talking about you. What a huge impact you have had on me!  I've only got a little ways to go to be fit in the way I'd like to be, it's just so much harder as the years keep adding up.  But my challenge to me is to be as fit as I possibly can.  I want to be one of those people who inspire others who are 35-40ish and look up to me for inspiration. I want to be one of those people who younger women look up to and think it's possible to stay fit as you age.  Okay seriously - I want to be Tosca Reno.  :)  So - lets see what we can do if we give it 100%!!
