Totally hear you. I love crunchy salty foods - try these for a guilt free munch festZucchini Parmesan Crisps 1 lb. zucchini or squash (about 2 medium-sized)1/4 cup shredded parmesan (heaping)1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs (heaping)1 tablespoon olive oil1/4 teaspoon sea salt freshly ground pepper, to taste Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line baking sheet with foil and spray lightly with vegetable spray.Slice zucchini or squash into 1/4 inch-thick rounds. Toss rounds with oil, coating well.In a wide bowl or plate, combine breadcrumbs, parmesan, salt and pepper. Place rounds in parmesan-breadcrumb mixture, coating both sides of each round, pressing to adhere. The mixture will not completely cover each round, but provides a light coating on each side.Place rounds in a single layer on baking sheet. Sprinkle any remaining breadcrumb mixture over the rounds.Bake for about 22 to 27 minutes, until golden brown. (There is no need to flip them during baking -- they crisp up on both sides as is.)If you not a fan of Zucchini try baked sweet potato rounds. Just leave out the parmesan-breadcrumb mixture. Toss the rounds in olive oil and single layer on a baking sheet sprinkle sea salt to taste. Bake for 10 minutes and flip, then bake for another 12 minutes! Done!

Thank you for sharing this story on here. I know that you're not alone in this experience. I remember many times that I have wanted to do a specific move, say a difficult lift and I have tried over and over and it just doesn't seem to be working. But you know what? The only time we fail is when we give up. So whether it takes me 5x or 500x, if I put my mind to something then I do it until I get it. From what I just read you are the same. I can also relate to being a little hard on myself, however, from my experience, I have learned that being kind and supportive to ourselves actually speeds up the success rate even more. So what I want to challenge you to do, is even in moments where you are out of breath, feeling a little defeated, or another circumstance where you might be hard on yourself. Stop and just tell yourself how proud you are of all that you're doing, working toward and turn that sort of criticism into encouragement. So instead of saying wow, I'm so out of shape, I can't believe I let myself get to this point, say WOW! I am so proud of myself for continuing to push forward despite how hard this is. I am proud of what I am doing and I am WINNING! Positive reinforcement, even to ourselves will make you less tense and anxious and your body, mind and spirit will be in balance. I am so proud of you already and know that you're going to achieve and likely surpass your goals. If there's anything I can help you with let me know. You are such an inspiration and a beautiful

Summer of 69

I definitely relate to this post and I'm glad you wrote it. So often for me, the difference between a good workout and a horrible one is the attitude I have going into it. I have found that I keep having these expectations of how it should be and feel - e.g., "I ran this course in 30 minutes last time... Crap! I'm off pace! Why is this feeling so hard! I suck! I can't believe I had to stop and walk this time when I didn't last time!" - etc., etc. So I relate to how it felt for you to try to do something that in the past was do-able or easier, only to find that this time, it's entirely different and now what you had thought. My best experiences come when I trade my expectations for appreciation. (I love that quote - I didn't coin it, but I'm literally going to get a tattoo of it on my body. The full quote is "Trade your expectation for appreciation and the world changes instantly.") I have found that when I catch myself beating myself up for not fulfilling whatever expectation or "should" running in my head, I try to find the thing to be appreciative of: e.g., "Lucky you, you have this time to take to yourself and enjoy a run! Some people don't have that!" Or "This is awesome, you have use of all your limbs and senses - so grateful! Not everyone has their health, sadly!" Or, particularly in North Carolina summers: "It's a little hot, but I'm so appreciative that I have ice-cold clean drinking water and AC to cool off after! And I'm so happy that I have the money to afford dece

This is incredible and so inspiring! Wow! This is precisely why I wanted to coach this challenge! You are already inspiring me to hopefully help support you! I really believe that you will accomplish your goals! The "I am" statement is so powerful and excuses are the easiest way we defeat ourselves. Whether we are trying to lose weight, trying to lead a healthier life, or whatever the goal might be there's always those voices that try to derail us from our goal. We will fight those voices here together and I can tell you that I BELIEVE you are VICTORY. Just writing and posting that story tells me you're ready for change! I'm here for you and can't wait to see what we accomplish together with the rest of those embarking on this journey. Anytime there's a voice that says you can't, look at that as your opponent trying to trick you into defeat and say NO WAY and keep moving!

Thank you so much for being such an inspiration in my life for years Karina. I can't wait to be coached by you!
