Change is inevitable. Progress is optional. – Tony Robbins

Although I really like Tony Robbins’ quotes most times this particiular quote doesn’t really do it for me. I personally believe that change is indeed inevitable but progress is NOT optional. Nor is is it progress if we are are changing!

I feel that this blog is a jump start to the change I am striving for in 2013. The past 2 years have not really been what I’ve wanted. I have struggled with weight loss, struggled with home stuff, and struggled with feeling like I am adequate. This blog is just one of the many changes I am aiming for during the upcoming year. 2013 is gonna be different. I am in control of making that change happen.

Why “juzcuz”? Because that is why this blog exists…JuzCuz….I want this blog to be a brain dump. I want this blog to be about my weightloss journey, my fitness journey, my life and all that it entails. My life is full of variety, so that’s what this blog will be. I am a homeschooling mom of a very active 9 year old boy. I am also a mom of a United States Marine who (fortunately) is NOT deployed and I will talk about my pride in my son’s choice as a Marine. I am striving to lose another 50ish pounds by exercising and eating a healthy diet….I AM NOT A DIETER!! I follow and support the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans as they are the best support system I have found online for helping find a balance in living a “normal” life and losing weight. I am also a huge supporter of the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure organization. I have taken 2 – 60 mile journeys and am signed up for the 3rd year in a row. My grandmother died of breast cancer and my best friend is a 1 1/2 year survivor.

I am striving to make 2013 a different kind of year. One of change and success. This blog will help to be my brain dump for everything going on in my life. I also want this blog to be a help to others. I am a “helper” and “encourager” by nature and that’s what I feel are my God-given talents. I am a Christian but not the “holier-than-thou” kind. If you want to know something feel free to ask. If you don’t then I will try to be a good example of what a Christian is. I am FAR FROM PERFECT….and PLEASE don’t expect me to be. I will fail you every time! I will talk your ear off about homeschooling (as I have been doing it for 18 years) and love to help others in their journey to homeschool their children. I also love talking about exercise programs and weight loss. I am in this for the long haul and love to hear about how others have found (or are finding) success.

This is my “JuzCuz”….I hope you will follow along and enjoy the journey with me!
