It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.  

One of the greatest gifts in life is the ability to chart our own paths, to be the “masters of our fate, the captains of our soul” –
 to paraphrase William Ernest Henley. 

Knowing that you have this power to choose, to decide and to chart your own path, what do you choose for yourself today? for this month or even this year?  My hope for all those that this blog touches is that you look into your hearts and choose to grow as a mother, father, sister, brother, friend and to take a chance. We all experienced our own battles and achievements in 2011, and I would like to hear about yours in the comments section.  For me personally,I have decided not to let my experience with breast cancer define me, or let it limit me in any way. I am determined not to feel sad or sorry for myself as I realize who I am in this new corner of my life. I hope to inspire women and men to keep up with their heath screenings and pay attention to their bodies' cues. I also am even more determined to keep around me positive, loving and energized people. My husband and I are training for a 1/2 marathon and we are so excited to take on this challenge together! San Diego Rock and Roll 1/2 here we come! 
1.  What are your health and fitness goals for 2012?
2.  How can this blog and the bootcamp classes best support you in achieving your goals?

Christmas Sweat~

my fitness warriors!

“To be successful you must accept all challenges that come your way. You can’t just accept the ones you like.” -Mike Gafka
I am looking forward to today's workout, I plan to try to do most of it, I am still struggling with chest exercises, so, I will go easy on those. 
For time:
150 Push Ups
Every time you stop and rest with your chest on the ground this constitutes a penalty. If a penalty is counted, you must immediately do 10 tuck Jumps. Once the penalty is completed continue with the push ups.
You can rest in a pike position (the top of a push up) but once you can not do push ups any longer and need to rest on the ground, a penalty is counted and a complete 10 tuck Jumps
Push Ups are hand release.
10 Rounds of:
10 Heavy Chest press 
10 Heavy KB swings
10 Jump Squats
10 Squat Box Jumps
*15min time limit...gotta hit some core!
Someone was asking about my protein pancake recipe...check out some of my favorites here:
Recipe..Protein Pancakes
One of the best ways to keep your nutrition is to PLAN AHEAD! The only way I can keep from eating junk, keep my protein high and keep it clean is to plan ahead, I cook all my protein in advance, always have green stuff on hand and keep foods in the fridge that I can grab. Protein Pancakes are one GO TO! Make tons in advance, put them in containers in the fridge and grab when ready.  You can warm up as you go out the door if you are hungry, and eat on the go.
if you have any great recipes, I would love to get them!
