Giving it "ABS"olutely my ALL!!!!

"Success is intentional.  -  Do you know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.  Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training.  They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it go get a crown that will last forever.  Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air.  No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize. -1 Corinthians 9:24-27 (NIV)."
Expert from the book Reposition Yourself - Reflections - Living a Life Without Limits - T.D. Jakes

I recently started reading this amazing book by T.D. Jakes when I reached this "reflection" and thought how fitting.  "Success is intentional."  You bet your booty it is.  I've never met anyone who wakes up in the morning and says..."Today I'm going to aim to fail!".   Everyday I wake up and say "Today, I will take on the world!" 

If you've been keeping up with me on Facebook, you know that I'm currently on a five week challenge, presently at mid week four.  Why the challenge? Because I have a photo shoot scheduled for the last weekend of January.  A shoot that I am very excited about and plan to share some of those final pics with you all.  The reason for the shoot?  To show everyone that through hard work, dedication, real food and exercise, a healthy body is very achievable.  Will this be the final product? No, of course not! I'm already plotting the next challenge to follow immediately after.  But again, I wanted to demonstrate to everyone that you don't have to have a "shredded" stomach or be in fitness model shape to look good and be beautiful.  How sometimes, the real deal, curves, a big booty, small breasts, dimples, a little more to squeeze here or there is actually EXTREMELY attractive and more importantly, HEALTHY.  

You've all heard me say that I'm "RAW, UNCUT AND UNEDITED IN 2011" and it's the truth.  Everything you see from me, read from me or that I put out is the real deal.  No fluff no fillers, no fake this no fake that... the real deal.  You've been seeing and will continue to see my success and my failures.

I've been documenting my progress week by week. Unfortunately, most of the pics that you'll see are of my abs, but you can also note the difference in weight drop by noticing the area along the hips. Why just the Abs, because after having two kids, they are my most problematic area.   

So... Here go the goodies...



WEEK FOUR (current status)

"No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize"

Not to shabby at this point, if I don't say so myself.  I've done it before and can do it again.

On the road back to here. Approx same time last year.

Why, because "SUCCESS IS INTENTIONAL"!   I succeed in all I do because I do it a hundred percent!  Because I bring nothing but straight "Hard-KORP" heart!!!  I succeed because I intend to succeed and I'm just getting warmed up! 

I'm very much looking forward to sharing the finished product pictures with you all and hope that I can not only inspire but motivate you.  Change is with in you.  Make the choice and stick to it.  "Can't" should not be a word that exists in your vocabulary when you're looking to succeed and accomplish.
