Mother-Daughter Health and Fitness Goals for 2017- Eternity

Having two sons/brothers who are in amazing shape, hit the gym for several hours a day and eat consistently clean diets, Brooke and I should be completely inspired to follow suit. Well, unfortunately we haven’t had a strong relationship with the  lifestyle guru that has befriended Ryan and Adam.  You know the guy–he goes by the name “Will Power.”   For us, Mr. Power is more like our distant cousin that we’ve truly been meaning to contact; however, we’ve  lost his cell number, can’t find his address and just haven’t had time to friend him on social media.   Yeah, Brooke and I are more of the we’ll get to it tomorrow… Netflix…We really don’t enjoy the gym…Netflix…Too much homework….Netflix…Loads of grading to do…Netflix….

Well, all excuses are over!  We’ve not only found our long lost cousin, we’ve invited him to reside with us permanently. Will Power is here to stay!  We have both agreed that bad habits are interfering with our overall moods, energy and health.  The time has come for significant changes.

It’s time to tone up, get stronger, healthier and feel great!  We’re worth it! You’re worth it! We’re ALL WORTH IT!

We’ve come up with ten goals we feel are manageable for our lifestyle.   Every six weeks we are going to post on our progress.  We are judging progress by stamina, mood, skin appearance, and measuring inches.
