"Once you make the decision to take control of what goes into your body, you're able to harness that power and reclaim yourself." -- Jillian Michaels
I've been asked many times over the past months what my 'secret' is . . . or what 'diet' I'm on. In reality it's rather simple, and it's changed my life completely (and I'm not on a diet). Jillian hit the nail on the head - it's about making the decision to take control of what you are putting in your body - then believing in these changes in your life so completely that it just becomes your new normal. In doing this, I've transformed how I feel, how I look, where I shop, how I cook, what I enjoy doing and really my entire outlook on life. Believe it or not, it has not been difficult for me to do, because I was ready. So many life changes came together for me in January 2010 to make it the perfect time for a metamorphosis in my life - to become a butterfly.
In transforming my life and putting myself on a path of self-realization, I've decided that I do have a lot to say and share, so here we are at the first entry in my personal blog. I'll be sharing my thoughts, activities, favorite places and recipes - and whatever else seems to fit along the way. I hope you'll join me on my journey!
