My life has changed doing Fit mania challenges and especially in the past 90 days. I am stronger. Physically I am much stronger. I have started lifting heaver weights and doing more pushups, my hardest exercise. When my 11 year old daughter went with me to get my after pictures taken it meant a lot to me that she told me many times she was proud of me. I want to be a good role model for her. I want her to take care of herself and to be healthy throughout her life. I am also physically stronger in ways that I cannot measure or see but that matter very much to me because I am keeping my body young and strong so I can take care of my family for a long time. I’ve seen too many family members and friends loose their health and strength as they age because they haven’t taken care of their bodies and I don’t ever want to be in that position. Last weekend right after the challenge ended I was able to piggy back my 15 year old son, who is not able to walk, on a hiking trail about a ½ mile long into some amazing, beautiful hot springs that he wouldn’t have been able to experience otherwise. I didn’t even feel fatigued and I credit that to my Fit Mania workouts. I am also becoming mentally stronger as I continue to push myself to do hard things. I am gaining self mastery as I get out of bed at 5:30am to exercise, and every time I push myself in a workout, and especially every time I resist urges to indulge myself in foods that make me so happy for a moment but are not good for my body. Self-mastery is important to me because I feel that it affects every area of my life and it will help me reach my goals and become the best me. I think and live differently because I know that whether I succeed or not I will find satisfaction in setting big goals and working towards them. In the past 90 days I have developed a stronger body, better self-mastery and a desire to set and achieve goals that stretch me. I want to realize all my potential.
