I'm back...

And way off-track! I've gained some weight back, too, but have no idea just how much until I do a weigh-in.

I'm disappointed and angry with myself but it's my own damn fault. I lost sight of my goals and let my desire to "enjoy" and "splurge" get the best of me.

OOPS. Bad idea. Yes, I'm paying for it.

So, now's the time to kick it back into gear and get moving.

The worst part? Knowing I have to come back here and to Spark People and re-set my current weight and my goals. Embarassing, no?

Anyone -- I have to do it. I can't lie to you and I can't lie to myself.

Do or do not. There is no 'try'.

SPARK PEOPLE -- Download the First Chapter FREE!

As you may know, I am an active member of the popular healthy-living website, SparkPeople.
In an effort to help SparkPeople live out their mission of helping millions of people reach their goals and live healthier lives,
I have joined a contest they're holding called "The Spark Free Chapter Challenge."

If you have one minute to spare, I could use your help, because I REALLY want to win!

So here's the deal with the challenge…

Chris Downie, SparkPeople's CEO and founder, recently published a book called "The Spark" that offers a proven new approach to improving your health, transforming your life and reaching your goals
(for example, real people have lost over 10 million pounds using their free online program)!

People like me who are helping them "Spread The Spark" through The Spark Free Chapter Challenge are encouraging our friends and family to download a FREE chapter of "The Spark" book.
And for every person I can encourage to download the chapter, I will get an additional chance to win a $500 weekend getaway and other prizes, as well as something they offer called "SparkPoints," which also help motivate me to reach my goals.

All you have to do to help is download a free chapter from The Spark book. Nothing else.

To do so, simply go to and click the button to download your free chapter.

If you would be willing to help me with this, I would truly appreciate it, and I also think you will enjoy reading this free chapter from "The Spark". I know I did!

Thank you for your time. I really appreciate it.

KettleWorx -- Review & Giveaway CONTEST CLOSED!


A few weeks ago, I received the KettleWorx Ultra 5 Kettlebell Workout set.
It’s one MAJOR workout – as my muscles will attest!

I’ve never experienced anything like it – it’s not at all like a dumbbell workout. It’s much more intense and much more gratifying – it doesn’t take much to see the difference in your body.
I'm losing inches (and I've lost a pound!) already and I am hooked on the KettleWorx program -- I think you'll be hooked, too!

The KettleWorx DVDs provide intense instruction – you never feel alone. You can ALWAYS find 20 minutes in your schedule for a quick workout session – a session that pays dividends fast.

KettleWorx is a complete home fitness program based entirely on kettlebell training. The kettlebell is a wonderful tool to deliver Cardio, Core and Resistance all in short 20 minute workouts.

The complete KettleWorx system includes ten DVDs, training in 200 unique exercises, over 12 hours of personalized kettlebell instruction and a healthy eating guide.
The KettleWorx program results in a remarkable body transformation after just six weeks, and requires only three 20-minute workouts per week.

Follow the KettleWorx program and you WILL change your body in a positive way.

The most popular package is the Ultra Package and includes the following DVDs:
Introduction – the basics
Cardio – includes 6 20-minute workouts with a Cardio emphasis
Core – includes 6 20-minute workouts with a Core emphasis
Resistance – includes 6 20-minute workouts with a Toning emphasis
Fast Abs – 3 additional 10-minute workouts targeting the abs
Fast Burn - 3 additional 10-minute workouts targeting cardio
Legs & Thighs – targeted training
Chest & Back – targeted training
Arms & Shoulders – targeted training
Butt & Hips – targeted training

The KettleWorx Program was designed to be simple.
To start the program, just choose 3 days of the week that are your KettleWorx days:
On Day 1: Cardio and do the Week 1 Workout
On Day 2: Core and do the Week 1 Workout
On Day 3: Resistance and do the Week 1 Workout
Week 1 is now complete and you’ve only invested 1 Hour.
5 more weeks/hours to go!

Most of you will come here via Gathering My Roses -- my former weight loss blog. That site will continue as a Product Review / Giveaway blog. We have some great products coming soon!

Not long ago, I decided to start this new year with a new attitude new user ID, and a new blog -- re-defining myself once again. Formerly, I used "GeorgiaMist" -- now, it's "Body-in-Progress" -- because that's where I am now: In Progress!

I hope that you'll continue to visit me here -- as I will continue to visit your blogs and journals!

Please follow me on Twitter (BodyINProgress).

Also, please connect with me via Google Friend Connect!

I've made so many new friends and don't want to lose any of you!

I encourage you all to re-assess, re-think, re-define, and re-new your journey of body, mind, and spirit.

Come back tomorrow as I'm going to be starting off this new blog with a fantastic Fitness Equipment giveaway!

Hope to see you then!

Please feel free to post a comment and tell me what you think of the changes I've made.
