No excuses!

So here's the deal--I have been gone ALL day the past two days working a conference all day and babysitting until 2 a.m. each night. I'm EXHAUSTED. I'm running on EMPTY. But, at 11:00 p.m. I realized that I hadn't met my step goal for the day(I use a Jawbone UP as a daily goal in addition to my fix workouts- i have a goal of 10,000 steps). And-- just past midnight- I got all of my steps in! I'm still babysitting until 2a.m. and I got up, got moving inside of the house-- #‎noexcuses‬ ! We do it!

The start of a brand new journey!

Last month, I had decided that it was time to make a new jump in my health and fitness and I began the 21 Day Fix (a whole other post! Awesome program!). But, as life always seems to do…it got in the way. Rather, I let it get in the way. After two weeks, I lost 6 lbs., toned up and then fell off the wagon (again).

Fast forward to to just after the annual Beachbody conference, where the 3 Day Refresh was released, and I knew that I needed to re-dedicate myself to the journey. See, my problem has never been simply eating healthy or being active. My problem is consistency and staying dedicated. I know, that great things only come with great sacrifice and much dedication. I don't know why I do it, but I have the hardest time in the world staying dedicated to one program and being CONSISTENT. Being PART of a fitness community is something that makes me extremely happy and keeps my focused (as I was when I was part of the Fit Girl Studio Team).

SO, When my friend Mandy posted her results from The 21 Day Fix and her new business with Beachbody- I was all over it. I wanted to know what she had done and how to get started. I had other friends give me info on Beachbody before. But, I just wasn't ready to commit. Now- I was game on. I love health, fitness and helping others. Oh, and who doesn't want to make extra money? Therefore, I TOOK THE PLUNGE! I signed up to be A TEAM BEACHBODY COACH. I haven't been this happy and excited for nearly a YEAR. I struggled all year with some deep stuff. Now, I'm offered a fresh start? YES! I'm really looking forward to continuing my journey with this wonderful company that allows others to continue working on their own health while helping others.

I can't wait to share everything I'm learning!
