New Years Revelation

I’ve been thinking a lot about 2015. A lot of things have happened, good and bad; it will certainly be a year to remember. I left an unsatisfying job that was killing me slowly in civil litigation for my new career as an assistant public defender, moved into our first home, got Toby back to Florida, and best of all got engaged to the greatest man, ever! In all of these changes, though, I’ve let my health slip.

Looking forward to the new year and more exciting events, I want to ensure that I start taking better care of myself. Surrounding myself with people who are going to support my lifestyle change is the first step to being successful with this mission. Finding the fitness program is easy since I’m a Beachbody coach and have access to a multitude of programs to try depending on my goal for the day. Although for the next sixty days I intend to follow the new Hammer & Chisel training program with my test group. I’m terrified because it is not intended for beginners, and, while, I do not always see myself as a beginner, I have not done anything really strenuous over the last couple months with the move and holidays.

I do not support body-shaming, yet sometimes I have to admit to myself, especially after the holidays, that my body is not feeling right. I have gotten “fluffy” and let myself go by not paying attention to my nutrition, not getting in my 30-minutes or 10,000 steps a day plan. And, my health has deteriorated.

Each day is a new opportunity, though. Just as I’ve taken control of my finances, I am now going to take back control (for the -umpteenth time) of my health.

You better watch out… I’m going to be a smokin’ bride in September!
