Hooray! No Relapse

The Return of the White Bikini
I'm still reveling in my client's success from the last Turbulence Training Transformation Contest, but the real triumph comes from owning your positive changes, and then improving from there.  Last week I entered Craig Ballantyne's new Early To Rise contest in the Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise combined category.  Several of my Gordon Studio clients entered as well in the Healthy category.

They all want to continue their progress and "Keep the Change" as I like to say.

Now, if I want to lead people to a certain destination I have to go there first so I know the way.  I am confident in saying that I know how to achieve and maintain a weight within standard healthy guidelines.  For what it's worth, my current Body Mass Index number is exactly 24.  That is officially healthy.

Over the next 12 weeks I intend to take healthy to "Ideal" on my own terms.  I will be going after a BMI of 22.  Not too low, just right.  22 is the destination, and for the next 81 days I will be learning, studying, and taking notes so that I can draw a map that will help me lead my friends, clients, and students there as well.  I may have "An Unexpected Journey"  just like Bilbo Baggins.  There and back again is a good title for this trip.

I've already had a few weeks to leave behind the excesses of the holidays, and my head is much clearer, and my appetite has returned to being a pleasant reminder of hunger rather than a clanging alarm of craving.

To everyone sharing the trail with me, have a safe, lively, and enlightening journey.
