I took updated photos and measurements today.  I am very pleased with the results!  My hard work is totally paying off.

Before Thanksgiving I finished Jillian Micheal’s Ripped in 30; last week, I finished her 30 Day Shred.  For the next month, I will alternate Jillian’s Killer Abs and Killer Buns & Thighs along with incorporating Kick Box Fast Fix on the weekends.  Of course, I will walk/run the dog every day and participate in lunchtime Yoga and Pilates with the ladies.  That is my favorite part of my work day!

I have always loved photography and taking photos, and over the past couple of years I’ve been getting into photography a bit more.  I’ve purchased a couple DSLR cameras and taken a community college course.  I am always looking for ways to improve and of course, as with fitness, doing is what will make you better.  Since podcasts have help motivate, inspire, and teach me so much about health and fitness in the past few months, I have started looking to podcasts to improve my photography by teaching and inspiring me.  One I’ve found that I have fallen in love with is the Improve Photography podcast. I’m also participating in the CameraShy Take52 Photo Challenge on facebook.  This week’s theme was “fresh”.  This is my take on fresh:


“Start Fresh” – In the spirit of New Year’s Resolutions when it is common to start fresh with health and fitness goals.

GO PATS!!!  As I type this it is 4th quarter of the Divisional Playoffs Pats vs. Texans.  Pats are up 38 – 20 with 9:58 left to play.  Right now I’m wearing my 2011 AFC Conference Championship t-shirt.  It’s a little big, I need a new one, so the Patriots should really have my back and take the Championship again this year!  And while they’re at it, I’d like a superbowl championship shirt as well…
