Hey guys!  It's been awhile since I've posted about my fitness journey.

I wanted to share with you my new pictures because I am excited about my progress!  As of today I'm down 24.5 pounds and 23.5" since I started in July.

With Ollie's heart battle, I didn't care about my own personal health, and I do think that's completely normal as a Mama.  However, I quickly saw after she was fixed how bad I had let myself go and it honestly made me sad.  So I did something about it.

I threw the excuses out of the window after a week of hearing my negative complaints coming out of my mouth.  I'm busy.  I have 3 kids.  I can't find the time.  I love junk food...but those were all excuses because I did find the time to watch all my favorite television show, and I was aware of everything going into my mouth & later my butt.

So I committed to get success.  I now workout about 6 days a week.  I did TurboFire for 10 weeks and I'm into week 9 of P90X.  I also drink Shakeology once a day - it's amazing stuff!

The thing is that if I can do it, anyone can do it.  And we all owe it to ourselves to be healthy.  I never realized before Ollie the importance of our health, but it's truly one thing money can never buy and when your health is gone - you can't replace it.  So now I workout for myself, for the energy it gives me, and for how stinking good I feel.  I also workout for my family.  So I know I'm here for as long as God wants me here, and so I can teach them the importance of a healthy lifestyle as well.

If you are interested in making a change, please email me at housethatjadebuilt@gmail.com  I'm starting a private small group fitness challenge January 2nd on Facebook.  Beachbody has offered amazing packages at great prices & anyone can do this no matter where you live.  I'd love to help you change your lifestyle as well!
