I'm a Savage Girl!

After months and months of trying to make this decision, I finally joined Cathy Savage Fitness on December 3, 2010. I am really proud of myself for taking my journey to the next level and making the commitment to become a Savage Girl. Cathy and her staff have already given me so many incredible gifts in my first month of being a member. I am enrolled in camp the last weekend in January as well and I am really working hard at getting prepared physically and mentally for that experience.

I've also been thinking really hard about resolutions, not just the "lose weight, get in better shape, etc." ones; but, the how do I become a better human being resolution. I have been feeling like there is a void in my life as of late, and this is during a time in which I have so many positives. I'm not 100% certain what that void is; but, I think a big part of it is allowing myself to be less than "perfect," and realizing the importance of mistakes and failures for personal growth. I am going to work beyond hard in 2011; but, I am going to allow myself to take some risks, some less calculated than others. I am going to push myself to be as genuine as I possibly can, even when it's uncomfortable. 2011 is going to be a huge year for me for SO many reasons, I am getting married, competing in figure, turning 30 and starting to plan for having babies...so many amazing things on the horizon!


  1. Yay! I can't wait to follow this journey. I have been seriously thinking about becoming a savage girl too (thinking around the end of Feb). :D

  2. If you're on the fence you should attend the one-day camp in February. I believe it's on Feb. 26, that is, of course if you are local...it's in Norwood, MA. I am so pumped to be a part of it and I feel like I have accountability partners/sisters all over the place. I'll definitely be posting about camp when I go in January!

  3. I am in Florida. :D

    I am on the fence but not about their program. I am on the fence about competing at all. So if I decide to compete I look forward to the sisterhood.

  4. WOW!! That's so great. I love your motivation. Please keep us all updated :) So you are doing fitness or figure?

    Do you live near Cathy Savage's studio? If so, you're a lucky duck!

  5. I am doing figure and potentially bikini just for the fun factor. I do live near their studios, only about an hour and a half away. I am very fortunate.
    And big news, I am going to start writing blog posts here and there for Lori Harder's website: Busy Girl, Healthy Life. If you haven't seen it yet, give it a look. It's a wonderfully done site and gives the everyday woman some great tips on how to eat clean on the go.
    Lots going on for me now and joining Savage has only been a great spark to help me amp up my workouts and commitment to this lifestyle.
    Happy New Year Ladies!
