SoOo... today is the grand finale of the Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred Challenge! :]

When I look back on this past month I cannot believe how far I have come.  I have literally changed my life completely around!   I have done things I never thought I would be able to do... I have uncovered a new spark of self confidence :]  And most importantly, I have learned to love myself.

In just this short period of time I have already begun to accomplish so many of the goals that I have set for myself.  Here are a few:
  • Be Healthier- Well this one goes without saying..
  • Feel Strong & Fit- I feel absolutely phenomenal!  I have so much more energy & stamina.
  • Not Fear Going To The Doctor- I went last week! :] :] :]
  • Feel Better About Myself- I have come so far in this area... My self confidence has skyrocketed this past month.  I am living and loving life like never before & it feels amazing.
