New Project, New Challenge

In a few short days on April 12th, it will have been officially 4 years since I originally made the decision to change my lifestyle and start getting healthy. Since that day, I have lost over 100 pounds. A feat that seems impossible when I think about it. It obviously didn’t happen overnight and it wasn’t always easy but it has been worth it every step of the way. I originally wanted to get healthy, be more comfortable in my own skin and maybe wear some cute clothes eventually. In the end, what I gained was far more rewarding:

I became the inspiration that once inspired me.

When I first started it was something I was pretty private about. I’m a self-motivated person so I decided I would do it on my own and only told a few people. It wasn’t really until I started having success with it and people started noticing that I started to be more public about it. It went from something I was maybe a little ashamed of to something I would shout from the rooftops. Now I have people coming up to me, some I don’t even know, asking me what my “secret” is and when people tell me that I’m their inspiration, there is NO greater compliment in the world!

So all that has led me here. I wanted a place where I can freely answer the common questions people ask me and a place where I could share my journey, experiences, gains, losses, successes, failures, inspiration and so much more. I wanted to continue to inspire others and to keep myself motivated at the same time because while I have accomplished pretty much what I originally set out to do, I still have personal goals for myself. I want to tone up the more stubborn areas and continue to strengthen and further challenge myself.

21 Day FixWhat better time to do that than the same time I start a new program? Tomorrow I start the 21 Day Fix program and I can’t even describe how excited I am! My bad eating habits have started to resurface recently and on top of that I haven’t really been staying on top of working out 5 days a week so I’m excited to get back in gear and it sounds like this program is exactly what I need! Tonight I will be taking measurements and “BEFORE” photos (something I wish I had been in the habit of doing when I started 4 years ago) so that I can track and see my OWN progress and I will make sure to share every step of this new journey and share more about the program as I go!

I’m still trying to finish getting the content up so please bear with me but until then, please feel free to leave a comment or email me if you want to ask me any specific questions or share your own goals and challenges you have set for yourself! I can’t wait to start this new journey! As I’ve always said: If I can do it, anyone can! So what are you waiting for?
