You are refreshing and vital as the air, graceful and tender as sparkling water, lustrous and consuming as flames of fire, generous and enveloping as space and stable and deep as the earth.. you elemental woman are perfect beauty itself. *Ancient essay on the five elemental women of Indian mythology*

Fitness Challenge*

Tomorrow starts the *Get of your Broom fitness challenge* and I think I may have went temporarily insane when I signed up...LOL When I read the challenge on The Domestic Pagan blog, I was excited, but now I'm just nervous. I have tried many times to become healthier and I do ok for about two weeks and then I'm down for the count. So, this time, because of the threat of complete humiliation I will really try to push myself to succeed. 
My Goals: To walk 20 mins (minimum) everyday
                  To drink 1-2 32oz bottles of water a day
                  To eat more fruits and vegetables
                  To stop telling myself that I can't do this*

This going to be difficult for me...mostly because I like my rut of sugar and carbs and
I'm ready to do this...I think ^_^


  1. We all stink at this, that's why fitness challenges work- we all hang together rather than separately. You can do this.

    You can always try self hypnosis. It helps me a bit.

  2. I appreciate your support..thank you* Hypnosis you say...hmmmmmm ;)

  3. Love the cartoon! I am with you on the sugar, carbs, caffeine rut!! Good luck!!

  4. I need to add the water drinking to my plan. I HATE drinking water (it doesn't taste like anything) but I need to do it. We can do this!

    And if someone tries to tell me anything about my sugar and my caffeine I might be tempted to cause them serious bodily harm. I'll just walk/run extra 30 minutes to deal with the sugar lol

  5. Hey there,
    You can do this. Self talk is so important because your body believes what you tell it. Your goals are doable. Just remember, baby steps before marathon running. :)

  6. You can lean on me if I can lean on you! We are in this together... let the fun begin!

  7. Oh my...I am quite overwhelmed at all the support...thank you all very very much.

  8. I too have the same problem but you're not alone. You can do this!

  9. Oh YOU CAN DO IT baby! OH YES YOU CAN! And we are all here for you too! Come on over to my blog for some inspiration! Tomorrow I begin the Drop it Swap it and I will also be blogging lots of inspiring things for you all... from recipes to fitness to just plain old fun! You will be amazed at the ability of the body!

  10. We can meet our goals by supporting each other. You can definitely meet yours :-D

  11. haha you almost make me want to join now. Goodness knows my broom would heave a sign of relief.

  12. Love the cartoon! To you, and all participants I want to say "I believe in you! You CAN do it".

    (K, now remember that when I get to bashing myself thinking I can't achieve my own goals with this challenge, so you can say it back to me!) Joking (I think) ;)
