Sweat, Sparkle, Repeat Header

Introducing Sweat, Sparkle, and Repeat from

My husband is rolling his eyes at me as I write this post.  This is officially my billionth attempt at getting in shape. Ugh!!! I’m sincerely trying to change my attitude about this. I’m wondering if any other young women in their 20’s struggle with staying in shape, but even more so, struggle with staying MOTIVATED to stay in shape.  I’ve always been a naturally thin person but I really don’t feel confident and in shape! I want a “feminine” and athletic physique, and as I my hubby would put it “JUST DO IT.” No excuses, total willpower.

HERE WE GO…time to get your Sweat & Sparkle ON…then REPEAT!!!!
