2013 Challenge & Two Half Marathons

I have some exciting news to share! *drum roll* I am now officially signed up to do the 2013 Transformation Challenge! Woo hoo! The challenge is 84 Days from the day I signed up, so my unveiling will be April 25, 2013. Truthfully, I'm pretty nervous about this challenge because I have signed up for my fair share of them in the past, and haven't gotten anywhere. However, this time I have you guys to keep me accountable! Yay! Seriously though, that means nothing. I have had accountability partners in the past too. If I don't want this for myself, I'm not going to do it. Point blank period. My drive has to be greater than my temptations. Uh oh! Look at me sounding all deep!

 They are taking entries until midnight tonight so if you want to sign up, you should do it because they are giving everyone three (3) days from the time you register to get your pics in. For more info, just click on the link and they tell you everything. is an awesome website and they have a plethora of nutrition information, workout plans (including Jamie Eason's Free 12 Week Plan), supplements, and transformation stories. I love that site.

As if that isn't hardcore enough (yeah, I'm really feeling myself right now), I have also signed up for my first half marathon! On February 17 I will be in (mostly walking I'm sure) the Mercedes Half Marathon in Birmingham, Alabama. I'm SUPER excited about this because this is actually on my vision board this year! I was actually able to snag this entry form a friend who got it for FREE! I also have a free entry in the 1st Tuscaloosa Half Marathon on March 2nd. So yeah, My little legs are going to pretty busy for the next few months. I'm not new to the Mercedes; I actually ran on a relay team last year with the Black Girls Run group here in Birmingham. I ran the 5k leg and I vowed I would do the half this year. 

My 6 year old, is getting in on it too by doing the Kid's Marathon and he is super excited! They get little medals too! 

Well, I promise to keep you all updated on my progress with everything. Keep me in your prayers!  #31:17 Fit Journey

Hello World! Welcome To My Journey!

So yeah, this is my first blog, post, article, etc. on this page! Yep, pretty nervous so please bear with me as I channel the writer within! Lol! 

My name is Jasmine and I'm a regular wife, mom, student, Christian, friend, diaper changer, dish washer, and boo boo kisser like you. I'm passionate about only a few things in life: My God, my family, and now my health and fitness. I have been on a "fitness journey" since basically my first son was born. Yep, that was 6 years ago and I haven't really made much progress. I have always been on and off again about health, fitness, and getting in shape. Hot, cold, lukewarm  you name it, I've been it. I'm starting this blog and  My Facebook  page to keep my self accountable because I'm tired. I'm tired of starting over. I'm tired giving up. I'm tired of admiring fitness folk, but never being that person. By gosh, I'm going to be that person this year! I'm doing this for my own personal satisfaction this time. Yes, I want to be an inspiration to my family, yes I want to be a role model and feel healthy and alive, but really at the end of the day,I just want to flex some muscles. Come on, don't we all? Kidding! Maybe... 

So follow me as I learn, cry, laugh, sweat, and work my way to my goals. I'll be trying out new workouts, recipes, products, and more! This is my new lifestyle, and its going to look great on me ; )
