MY 100th POST!!

Wow!! 100 posts and 100 more to come!!

When I realized I was approaching my 100th post, I wanted to take some time in truly thinking about WHAT I wanted this post to be. Leaving all my training aside, my diet, my workouts... none of it I wanted to write about (at least not for this once in a lifetime post) ;)
I've thought about this post now for 3 days... and the only thing I can think to write about is the GRATITUDE I have for the loved ones I have in my life.

So Cheers to this 100th post... and let the THANKING begin!

First and foremost, I must thank my loving husband, Ryan, for continuing to show me his support and love with everything I choose to take on in my life. Ryan
has always been there right beside me holding my hand and telling me to "do it babe" "
what do you have to lose." He is the shoulder I cry on, my breath of fresh air, my strength to keep going and my one in a million BEST FRIEND! I'm not the easiest person to tolerate and I know that ;) But he does it with no effort and reminds me that everything will always be "OK".
Never have I gone a day without thanking the Lord for the blessing of my husbands unconditional love for me.
I'm thankful for Ryan's Dad, Kerrie, who played a huge part in arranging the relationship between Ryan and I. I was 17 when I met Kerrie who had introduced me to Ryan (21). I KNEW Ryan was my "Soul Mate"... and to this day I believe Ryan is my "Soul Mate."
I can't express enough in words how much I love my husband and just how thankful I am to have him as part of my life :)

Second, I want to thank my two beautiful girls who have given me nothing but love. They treat me like a Super Hero Mommy!! As if I can't ever do anything wrong :) In their innocent little eyes, I AM their hero! I'm so blessed to have been given the role as a Mother... I couldn't have asked for a greater happiness. These two little Princess's keep megrounded and always on my toes to be a better example. As we continue to grow together, and continue to learn from each other, these two girls willalways be the fire in my heart that will drive me to greater success!! Nothing can top the love that a Mother possesses for her children! I LOVE you GIRLS and am extremely thankful for the two little hearts that beat so curiously for life itself :)

I want to thank my Family! My brother, sister, Mom, Mother in law, 3 Sister in laws (one in which is my best friend!!) :) my annoying brother in law who will continue to give me a hard time about eating Vegan... our love-hate relationship is more fun than you all know ;) ha ha ha...

Thank you Team Beachbody and my AMAZING Family of Coaches!!! You ALL Rock!! You all keep me going each and every day. I want to succeed more than I did the day before, and most importantly, I want to see all of YOU succeed! Together as a TEAM, we will all see each other at the TOP!!

Thank you Kristen Suzanne for being a tremendous friend to me and someone that I can go to for advice on training as a Vegan, advice on eating Raw, great recipes to share with my precious family and for a nice girl talk with endless giggles. You have been there for me through thick and thin. We may have had our differences and voiced them aggressively at times, but we are one of a kind friends and have built a solid friendship that will last a lifetime. Without your loyal friendship, I wouldn't know what I know today. I'm truly blessed to have an amazing and warm hearted friend as YOU!

Thank you God for giving me the life I live today! For guiding me in the direction to learn and teach others. Thank you for using me to help others become healthier and live stronger! I am so beyond thankful for this life you have given me... I will do my very best to succeed in being a friend and helping as many people as I can succeed!!

Thank you... all of you for your support!!
