    I’m so proud of you Jen! I think because I am around you so often I didn’t really understand how much change you have accomplished, nor given you the credit you deserve. You Rock, and you will continue to rock and even rock harder as the years go bye, this much I’m sure of. Way to hold yourself accountable to the world! Here’s to being more Strong and Beautiful (aka Strutiful)

    Jen, you have made some AMAZING changes in your life this year. You have become even more positive, healthy, and strong. Your own positive life changes have helped me stay on track with my own. Keep rocking it, girl!

    In addition to the “anonymous” comment, I’d like to share some words that inspire me to keep progressing and not let it stop:

    Many of the bodily changes we associate with aging have nothing to do with aging per se. Decreased muscle mass and increased fat may be normal in this culture, but these conditions are not necessarily natural-and we needn’t expect them. They are caused by inactivity, accompanied by a mindset that expects us to grow weaker as we age. As we have seen, the physical condition of sixty-year old Tarahumara runners was *better* than that of the twenty-year olds.

    From “Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom” by Christiane Northrup, M.D., ch. 18.


    To exercise actually means to bring into action. When we exercise, we bring into action our ancestral memories. Our bodies remember that we lived in trees and forests. We need to crawl and climb and run if we are to develop our intellectual, emotional, and spiritual capacities…. We tend to think of exercise as losing weight, as trimming off the fat. But to exercise is to enable the body to remember its past, so that it can stretch out wiht all its intertwined powers of being and thought and reflection.

    From “The Universe Is a Green Dragon” by Brian Swimme, physicist.
