WOW. I've been looking at my Shutterfly account and I have over 50 albums.....I think my first album was in 2005......aaaaannyway: can you say FFS??? **Fat Face Syndrome***
Really, it's amazing how I've evolved over the last 3 or some years. I've DEFINETLY had my rollercoaster on this FITNESS & NUTRITION journey, and it's not over. But at LEAST I know I'm on the right path. I know I've posted my before & after from competition, here it is: FITNESS PREP: BEFORE & AFTER.

BUT, here's where I was before I even DARED TO DREAM!!!!!!!!!! Seriously, I can't say these are "embarassing" because I've always tried to stay pretty positive about my apperance, even if I was never super fit..........hard to really explain. I see these pix and think: WHOA, I must have been really unhappy.....but that's not true! However, I am SUPER happy now about how much of an impact health & fitness have in my life. TRULY Happy, and now able to help others, which is AMAZING! Okay, no more babbeling, here ya go: :)

Fam. Christmas. Uhhhh, not much on the diet front, even though I worked out somewhat consistently...

Oh boy, what can I say, this was classic Fat Face Syndrome

Gene's 1st Kansas visit. Again, I "worked out" but diet was sh*t

Me & Seester. Bad Diet, worked out though

Er's First visit to spokane. I'd been pretty consistent with nutrition & workout...no FFS!! :)

Getting educated on diet. Losing the FFS

Month out from 1st Fitness Comp.

Thanks for looking. Love!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's beginning to look a lot like.........

CHRISTMAS!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Although we've already discussed how i'm not SUPER thrilled about snow, I DO love a white christmas. And we're pretty much guaranteed to have a nice white Christmas!!!!!!! My hubs has shoveled so much snow, I can't even keep count the HOURS he's been at it the last four days. Ohhh, and the weather report tonight: up to 7 more inches............uhhhhhh boy
Here's after a couple rounds of heavy shoveling! Bless his heart! And there's Nash..

So, as Christmas is upon us, of course we all know what's next---NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS!!!!!!!! RIGHT???
I'm super excited because this will help fill my schedule, but also, I LOVE being inspired by people. It will continue to boggle me WHY PEOPLE WAIT, but hey, if you need the New Year to motivate you, then so be it! :) I love to reach my goals, and I love to watch and HELP people reach theirs!:)

I hope you're all enjoying the last few Calm days before CHRISTMAS EVE & CHRISTMAS DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Lots of love-stay safe & warm~
Em =)
