Why did you enter the SSS contest by BuffMother?
I needed to get back in shape after a long time off. I needed the accountability to be able to stick with it.

What tactics did you use to stay focused and engaged for the entire 70 days?
I kept seeing myself looking better than I ever have so far.

How do you feel about your success?
I have mixed feelings. I really thought I could accomplish so much more. And yet I’m very happy to have been consistent throughout the whole challenge even through the different things life threw at me. And I’m very happy about not just giving up!

What obstacles did you have to overcome in order to attain your goals?
I had to get over my fear. Fear that “trying” would be too stressful and I would end up like I did last year. Fear of failing.  Then Jake was diagnosed with diabetes and that was a shock to say the least. We live life by a totally different schedule now. Then there was my niece’s wedding (food!), family picnics (food!), my 19th year anniversary (food!). LOL, lots of food obstacles as well.

What would you like to tell the world about BuffMother ?
There’s nothing quite like BuffMother! Or even more specific there is no place like the Rally Room!  Also, even when I try different programs and routines, they are all centered around hormonal timing. Even sometimes when I just don’t WANT to think about hormones I can’t help but factor them in now.
