Do something to change that
Decide I wasn't worth it and give up.
Well, I've never been very good at giving up.
Even though I've had nearly every single reason a woman can have for 'giving up'.
Go back and check out previous blog entries if you're curious, but they range from medical conditions to deployments and death. It's been a remarkably tough year.
But I'm very quickly recognizing that, well, I'm tougher.
This Thanksgiving (which will continue to be grain free for me) finds me especially grateful for all those people who inspire me every day, and support me in this journey and all the other crazy places this life takes me. From Facebook buddies, to intimate friends and family, to people that are somewhere between, it's been a fun and crazy ride that I'm glad to take with ya'll. I don't have photos with all of you, but here are a few inspirational moments on my list.

Here's some of November's progress!
Are you ready for the craziest bit of all?
I've Only Lost FOUR POUNDS since I started Training 3x/week!
The scale is only one small tool in my arsenal.
When I started, I couldn't run a mile.
Now, most of my miles 10 minutes. In fact, I ran a 50 second 200m sprint yesterday.
When I started, the 45lb bar was 'heavy'. Now, I back squat and deadlift over 200lbs.
And something tells me I'm not done yet...
