Fitness Contract

As I sit here at my desk and work on the first paper of my first Masters class I am forced to make a plan to self-modify a problem. Although the book states that it is often difficult to identify the problem you would like to change, that is not the case for me. I know exactly what problem I want to change. Part of this "plan" is to sign a contract. As I printed this contract and was tying out this paper for class, I realized "styleberryHOME" was right - it is time to start a blog for my passion - FITNESS!!! And, to get out of this depressed, feeling sorry for myself rut that I have been in for 4-6 weeks since my husband has been out of town.

This is the perfect start to my contract. I will post my "before" pictures later...when I have really good "after" pictures. Or maybe never. I don't know if pictures of my butt hanging out of the bottom of a bikini bottom should ever be on the internet. We'll see about that one.
My goal is to someday use this blog to post publish my journey onto stage as a figure competitor.

I am not using Bob Greene's plan but I do listen to his radio show and really enjoy it. I love that he truly lives his life continually with what he believes. His walks the walk daily. I truly believe in what he preaches as I do most all of the fitness and nutrition experts we have at our disposal. But, for some reason, I am hard core for 6 months and then I waiver for 3-6 months and then I'm back again. I may be too hard core when I am working hard and it is unsustainable. I also have the problem that when I reach the goal (or get to where I am happier with myself) I don't fight like hell to keep it. I feel like I deserve to look this way and I let is slip away.

I have a lot to learn about myself and how to be the best person I can be. I have a lot to learn about my body issues and how to turn those into positives and work with those the best I can. My contract is signed. I have to eat consciously and not because I'm depressed my husband is gone!

I hope you will join me in my journey and help me out through this and all of my other life's endevours....




About This Blog

I am Tori (FITori) and welcome to my blog!!!

I created this blog from the encouragement of my best friend who pushed me to start a blog about my passion, which I am always talking about! It started as a way to inspire others the way I have been inspired and to share what inspires me. I also want to share with you what I have learned through my years of research on health and fitness.

For me, this blog is a great place for me to document my fitness journey. I decided to compete this year, but have transferred that goal to next year so that I can bulk and compete in Figure. This blog is my accountability and hopefully I can get some advice and tips along the way. I am hoping that I can learn from you all also as I post what I am learning along the way. If I am wrong or there is advice for me, I want it! I want your theories. What are you doing differently?

I'm also looking for accountability to keep this up and inspiration from you all. I read your blogs and get inspired and knowing you're reading mine keeps me going!

Thank you for your support!!! Let me know if you have any special requests for blog posts!
