This challenge is coming to a close. I have learned so much and have grown so much through this challenge. I am feeling stronger and more powerful as each day passes. I love that I don’t have the cravings like I used to and the attachments to certain foods like I used to. It took me about three months to feel like I can let go of the addiction to caffeine and sugar. I feel so empowered! I now use food as fuel instead of as a drug to pacify my emotions. I am so honored to be able to walk with women just like you and help you overcome these struggles and work together to renew our minds. Our mind shift is the most important part of this challenge. We will never be perfect but with each day we will get closer to our goals as long as we are willing to do the work. Most importantly, we are learning to accept who we were designed to be and that is priceless:)
1.) Thursday -Yoga Day!

It took me about three years to LOVE yoga. I was a hard core gym rat, runner, dancer, and I didn’t really think yoga was going to be that challenging so I never took it. One day I was at the gym and there was a yoga class. I decided to take the class because there were no other classes at the time. The instructor was an older lady and was very gentle. I left the gym and didn’t think much about it. The next morning the alarm went off and I seriously could not even move my arm!!! I was so sore in places I never thought possible!!! I definitely underestimated the power of yoga. I didn’t go back until a few years later. I had given birth to my third child and the last of the stubborn baby weight would not come off. I heard about Power Yoga and decided to try it out. I was desperate and it was purely for vanity reasons! What I realized was that yoga was so much more than just a workout. This is where I really learned to balance my mind, body and spirit. I would walk in on some days and swear that that was going to be my last yoga class! I hated it so much! I had to learn surrender and acceptance and that was a huge life lesson for me. I also lost twenty pounds:) So I guess, it works!!!
2.) Food- Super Food of the Day! Cauliflower!!!

3.) Mantra of the Day!- Transformation!!!
I love this!!! We’ve been conditioned to lose weight to fit in a dress, to look good for a reunion, for a wedding, or some other special occasion. Getting healthy and fit is a LIFESTYLE!!! There is no finish line. It’s a marathon not a sprint. I hope you will join us for the next challenge that will begin on Monday, April 2nd! Registration will close on March 31st at midnight!

Love you guys and I’m rooting for you!!!
