Chasing My Fit: ROAR!

20131216-080402.jpgI've been paying a little less attention to my weight fluctuation as of late. I started marathon training and I've been noticing increases for no "bad" reason. Honestly, I think my body is back into a big muscle building mode. Seriously though...I'm not too concerned with it! My body is making progress and I'm confident in my choices. (Never thought I'd ever say that before!)  Besides how can I complain when I am able to put on clothes that I haven't worn in a decade????  It really feels great.  I'm conquering my goal of having the body and fitness that I always dreamed.  Who'd have ever thought that would be what followed 4 kidlets?  ROAR!
