If one more person says “New Year, New Me” I’m gonna lose my shit.
Just because 2018 has officially commenced, it doesn’t mean you need to make a resolution to be a completely different person. Why not start with just being a BETTER person?!
Maybe you’ve noticed (or maybe you don’t care at all!), but for the past 2 weeks I have been on a bit of a hiatus. Call it “Christmas Break,” call it “vacation,” call it whatever you want…..but I refer to it as PIT: Personal Improvement Time. Generally when I take some PIT, it’s for a day, or a couple of hours during the workweek….but after this past fall season, I felt like my body, my brain, & my sanity could all use some much needed “me time.” And then it got me thinking, maybe this should actually be required for adults?! It certainly makes me miss the good ‘ole days of being student and having “holiday break,” ya’ know?!
So during some of my free time throughout the past 2 weeks, I decided to get a leg up (literally & figuratively!) on my 2018 workouts….and that was probably the best decision I have ever made! Not only did it remind me not to eat as much during the holiday season when we tend to reach for everything in sight, but it also reminded me that I REALLY LOVE WORKING OUT. The last time I was SERIOUSLY dedicated to a fitness routine was in 2013 before “Courtney Loves Dallas” premiered on Bravo……UMMMMMMM, for the record that’s 4 years ago! Yes, I love SoulCycle and would do that regularly, but my body really responds the best when I have a trainer holding me accountable…sad to admit that at the ripe age of 36 I still need someone to “hold me accountable?!”
Fast forward almost 5 weeks, and I am feeling INCREDIBLE. I am feeling STRONG. I am feeling CONFIDENT.
So confident that I promised my boyfriend that I would have my 6-pack back by his birthday…..in 3 months.
WHAT HAVE I GOTTEN MYSELF INTO?!
I will share more of my fitness, health, & wellness journey throughout the next couple of months, but for now, let me know in the comments below if you have any new fitness resolutions! I mean, don’t we all?!
