Freedom is MINE!

Freedom is MINE and I KNOW how I FEEEL.. it's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new LIFE for ME and I'm feeling GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!  

**That wouldn't be the first time I started out a blog with lyrics from that song! I have to get on my JH soap box for a minute. I LOVE that woman.. you don't even know. I love her as a person, as a weight loss icon, as an artist, as a mother, just all around LOVE her. I am determined to meet her!! She is coming to Camden in July and I want to buy a meet and greet package sooo bad. It's pretty expensive though so unless I get lucky on one of these trips to the casino, then I won't be going! I work hard for the money! **

Anyway, hope everyone is doing wonderful!! I know I am! I just feel so absolutely ALIVE. I wake up in the morning full of life, energy, and pure happiness! I know none of this would be possible without the blessings from my God and I thank him a million times over. I also know a lot of it has to do with the fact that I blessed with an awesome family and home. But I ALSO know that it's because I have made such a huge change to my life by eating better and exercising! I get so much satisfaction out of cooking a healthy meal and being full off of one plate. The "satisfaction" that I used to get when I would eat a double cheeseburger, fries, and a large soda DOESN'T COMPARE!

To know that I am making conscious choices to better my health, my future, and my daughter's future gives me a natural high like no other feeling I have felt in my life!!!

I took a picture of myself after my Turbo Fire workout today (which was SO stinking FUN!!).. I was sweating so bad and so proud of it, I had to document it! Here it is:

I absolutely LOVE Turbo Fire..I love all the ones that I've done so far but today was exceptionally fun. The music gets me so pumped up.. "Boom I got your boyfriend, I got your man" [not that I believe in that song lol but it's a fun song to dance to!] I tried to find a video of Fire 45 to post and this is all I could come up with:

That video doesn't do the energy of the workout justice though! They need a new word for the kind of sweat you break doing TF!

In other news

Do you ever stop to notice the little changes that have occurred during your weight loss transformation? I have noticed muscles that I never knew I had before! Of course they are still covered in a layer of fat but I'm working on that! 

I have noticed little things like when I stretch, the strength in my legs! 

Even things like how much easier it is to hold my daughter since I have gained strength in my arms.. not that she is heavy but it is just like holding a glass of water because I have that much more muscle

Or how about how easy it is to sit up from a lying position? No arms needed to lift my body weight.. and I do these things without even thinking about it then after the action is done, I realize how my body has changed.

Getting out of the car, crawling around on the floor with my daughter, sitting in booths at restaurants, etc..<---all things that are easier since I have lost weight. 

I know I'm not the only one and I won't put it all out there because my mom and my boyfriend read my blog but I know I'm not the only one who has noticed a difference in the bedroom! 

It's amazing what weight loss can do for a person both inside and out! I feel like a whole new person that was just living inside the OLD ME waiting to burst out and enjoy life!! People say "You lose weight and gain life".. there is not a statement more true! I am more alive than I have ever been in my 23 years here on this earth and that's something that NO ONE can take from me! 

Hard work & dedication. Let's do it!!

Oh and also, I have noticed changes recently as well. Like I can pull my chair all the way in at the tables at university. Before my legs were too big to get under there!! And I got back into my old jeans yesterday...so satisfying!
