I am a 39 yr. old stay at home mom to 3 girls ages 10, 9 and 7. My goal is to be fit by 40! I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I was banded on 4/5/2011. I tend to be a bit on the sarcastic and cynical side. I love to read, hate to excersise (but am learning to tolerate it!), love to shop and want to smack anyone who is a size 2 (not really!). I am learning to work with my band and my new self one day at a time!

Workout Wednesday..........That Little Voice In Your Head

That little voice tormented me for years.

You can't do that you're to............fat, huge, ugly, worthless, chunky, have bad knees, had a stroke, to old.

You know the voice.  That irritating little thing that makes you assume that you can't even try something because you will fail.

But how do you know you will fail? Especially if you never try.

I listened to that voice.  I followed that voice.  I built a nice cozy little home in my head for that voice and invited it to take residence.  That voice made me feel bad about myself.  Loathe myself.  Have such bitter disdain for myself.

Well, this morning, I got to tell the voice it is a LIAR.

I did something that I thought I NEVER would do.  EVER.

I went to boot camp.


Boot camp.  At 5:30 in the morning. 

And I enjoyed it (GASP).  Seriously (it may be all the endorphins that are pumping through my body right now that are talking).

I felt empowered, capable and strong.  Me.....strong?!  Who would have thought?!  I would have told you to shut your mouth if you had said I would have enjoyed a boot camp a year ago.

I am feeling very accomplished right now.  Probably because I am NOT a morning person and getting up at the crack of dawn is still new and exciting to me.

Anyway, go out there today and tell that voice that is a LIAR.

Just do what you are physically capable of.  Whether it is walking around the block, running, strength training, swimming, taking a class....etc.

Just prove to yourself you are capable of doing great things. 

Then, call the voice a liar and kick it out of your head for good!

Happy Workout Wednesday!


  1. Rock on, Brenda! YOU did that! Awesome! While boot camp wasn't my thing, I'm very, very proud of you!

    And yeah, that little voice is a demon.... I know all too well.


  2. I love this post! You are so right on!

  3. YOU GO GIRL! I kinda wanna try some boot camp, too... but I'm just so NERVOUS! Oy.

    And whatever voice in your head that told you you were ugly was obviously blind... you're gorgeous. :)

  4. ohmygod. boot camp looks so scary! you brave, brave woman! maybe someday I'll get there!
