Day 2

Just finished day 2 of my 21 day challenge with My Fit Foods, and I'm feeling good!  It was difficult today at work, as I was surrounded by co-workers who were drinking coffee.  But, the regular small meals help to keep me satisfied throughout the day, and I'm drinking a lot of water.

I'm also refining my dance moves and fitness program with Vickie Griffith.  I'm finally tapping into my inner dance diva.  When I was in middle school, I tried out for drill team, and I was denied.  I also dropped out of gymnastics class....not really, but I totally sucked.  I was much better at singing and playing instruments.

The beauty of becoming an adult is that you can shop for a teacher until you find the one who encourages you....and you can be more confident in loving yourself just as you are.  This, in a way, makes it much easier to take on a new task.  It is easier to learn, arguably, when we are younger, but as adults, we have massive opportunities to shape our own lives.

I'm still shaping mine.  And, I love this quote (I just learned George Eliot was the pen name of a woman):

"It's never too late to be who you might have been."
George Eliot
English novelist (1819 - 1880)

Therefore, I'm on a quest to be someone....someone I want to be...not someone I'm told to be, or someone I'm expected to be.  It's nice to have a challenge in place to keep me on track for my fitness goals and to help me find continued clarity.  I like it!  Love will follow :)
