It's not that I was looking or found a "new" me... It's more about discovering a piece of me that I never knew was there!!!
It's embracing another piece of me. Another strength.
It's a hunger.
It's a desire.
Accepting the before.... while working towards the "after"
I am INSPIRED
and I want to INSPIRE.....
I have officially been "heavy weight training" for about 5 months now. I CAN tell a difference in my body. Granted, it may not be exactly where I thought I would see the difference, but it's there!!!
My legs are firmer... my arms are tighter.... my butt... well - it's THERE. (I was lacking in that area before!) ha ha
Some may see this as arrogance.... or some form of bragging or flaunting or how ever you might choose to twist and turn this...
But in my eyes... I'm PROUD
When I talk about it, it's not condemning you, but it's with passion. Passion for me. Pride!! :)
As women we look at ourselves every day and think "what we wish we could change"
We wish and hope and dream and pout and complain
but we NEVER do anything about it.
There's not enough time.
I don't have the energy.
I'm not strong enough...
Trust me. I've used them all!!!
But in the end, The hunger... The desire... The will to fight... The refusal to give up is what drives you!!!
You have to KNOW what you want and fight. Push. Never give up.
This is true not just in the gym, but in life!
I have set my mind to many things and pushed my way through...
It's always hard and some days hurt more than others.
But in the end, it's ALWAYS worth the fight and the strength you gain from it!!!
A little over a week ago, I did something I never thought I could do and SWORE I wouldn't. But I survived. And I came out stronger. With a new desire to take into 2013!!
So on this journey, my sweet B-rad (who's holding my hand along the way) has started me a YouTube channel... which I'm now going to share with you. (HUGE step for me... I'm not one for putting myself out there like this.... it makes me accountable!) I will begin this at what I consider to be just the beginning for me...
I've come a long way to get to where I am today. But my first competition is my beginning. To a fun filled healthier stronger lifestyle that I plan to embrace every day
You are welcome to join me
I know I have limits, but I haven't found them yet ;-)
And when I do - I'm gonna push them as far as I can!!
Check out my competition on you tube. Here's the link to one video but you can see them all if you so choose!! (search for BGPR Tammy Green)
PS - We ALL wore our pink socks to the competition that day..... Breast Cancer awareness socks! :))
