Happy Monday | February Goals

So how about that Super Bowl game, huh? I'll be honest, I'm not a big fan of the sport, but I do love a good Super Bowl Party!  I had such a nice time yesterday with family and good friends eating, laughing, and just chatting it up!  Needless to say, it was a cheat meal sorta day!  I enjoyed that yummy food, but now it's time to move on and get back on track!  What better way to do that than to share some of my goals for this month with you.  I think small, attainable goals set are great and Saturday I shared my goals for February on Instagram as part of the #grinderglamchallenge.  It's basically a photo a day prompter but it's fitness related. Gotta love that!  Feel free to join the challenge on Instagram with me!

What are some of your fitness goals this month?  

Transformation Tuesday

This is the first time I post a Transformation Tuesday, probably because I've felt I am not exactly where I want to be and I don't feel I've reached my ultimate goal.  But today I'm like, hey, I've come a long way and I should be proud of all the hard work I've put in.  You can read all about my journey in detail on My Story page.  It's amazing to see that almost 2 years ago I would not even consider buying running shoes, nevertheless wearing them!  Yet, here I am today itching to buy a new pair of sneakers, signing up for races and events I didn't even know existed and training hard for these challenges.  

I'm here to tell you today that you can make changes to your life.  You can find the drive and the focus you need to make those changes.  It's not going to be easy and if you're anything like me, you will have pitfalls and it won't be perfect success.  But, that's not the point is it?  No, the point is that you are out there doing what you thought was impossible.  Doing what you didn't even know you wanted to do!  So, whether you are just starting your fitness journey or you're on the road and think you'll never reach your destination, just know that it's happening.  It's not only happening on the outside, but it's happening on the inside.  People are noticing.  It's not about reaching that perfect number on the scale, although that's nice too, right?  It's more about finding the courage to do something different and focusing on becoming the best version of yourself.  Here's to transformations from the inside out!  

It may not seem like a huge drastic change to many, but it is to me and I'm happy with where I am now and looking forward to where I'll be 3 months from now!
