Why did you enter the SSS contest by BuffMother? I wanted to lead by example; my goal was to get more fit and to gain muscle

What tactics did you use to stay focused and engaged for the entire 70 days? I did a ton of videos for my SSS video coaching program...a 10 week training program that gives you weekly coaching via a private site www.buffmother.com/videocoaching

I also tried to blog daily in the Rally Room and to comment on everyones blogs! The energy is amazing in the RR!!

How do you feel about your success? I feel really good!! I feel like these 10 week have been a journey in my spirit life. I feel more passionate about my health than I have in quite a while. That feeling comes from deep within my spriit~ God is the source of my passion and love for life...I want to keep HIM #1!

What obstacles did you have to overcome in order to attain your goals? I have been dealing with recurring bladder/kidney infections. It was really tough at times to know if I should rest or workout. I did the best I could with it and I feel heathier each day. My goal is to stay healthy and never have another UTI!!!

What would you like to tell the world about BuffMother ? Iwould like to let everyone know that it's never too late to increase your fitness, your health and to create your best body EVER. I also want people to know that success in fitness is not measured by the scale...many of the measurments are not even visual. It's about being HEALTHY... in mind, body and spirit!
