I can hardly believe it fit friends.  Next week on March 28, it will have been one year since I started on this amazing journey with my health and fitness, taking my own Beachbody Challenge with TurboFire and Shakeology.  As I sit here and type this I am practically in tears at how my life has positively changed in so many ways.  A year ago I was 165lbs, unhappy with my body and the way I felt, I had no energy, no desire to do anything but get up, go to work, come home, do dinner and go to bed, only to do it all over again.  My dreams were non-existent, my hope was pretty much crushed.  Now.... after losing over 30lbs, lowered my overall body fat by more than half and increased my energy like woah, I feel as if the entire world is at my fingertips, I have dreams, I've reached AMAZING goals and milestones in fitness, in family, in business and in life in general.  If you were to sit here and tell me this would be my life that I'm living right now a year ago, I would have called you a liar to your face.  Absolutely humbled and blessed beyond words.  So, I wanted to just take a minute to kind of let you all know that now you may look at my life and think I have it all figured out, well that's not the case.... I'm teachable friends, I leave myself open to learn something new everyday and to learn from others who struggle the same way I did almost a year ago.  I want you to know that this journey wasn't easy.  When I first started working out on Day 1, by Day 2 and 3 I wanted to quit.   I was sore as heck and I just didn't want to move.  But, my WANT overcame my EXCUSES and I pushed through.  Day by day, week by week, the soreness got better and I started to get more energy.  I also struggled with cravings and wanted to eat junk that I knew wasn't good for me.  For the entire 90 days of my commitment to my journey to lose weight, I nixed all junk food, no cheat days, no breaks, I was serious about dropping the weight and feeling better and I wanted results as fast as I could get em.  You know, I'm all about enjoying life and having a piece of cake and ice cream, and eating a yummy mexican joints, trust me, I LOVE TO EAT... but, I made a commitment to myself for 90 days to push and strive for the results I wanted and I wasn't about to let a night out, a cheat day or a slip get the best of me in this 90 days.  This is the type of commitment that gets results.  You CANNOT expect to get results when you are only committed part of the time.  You commit part time, you're gonna get part time results.  After giving my full commitment for the entire 90 days, I found myself happier, I reached my goal, I had energy, I had DREAMS, I had more GOALS.  I felt FANTASTIC.  I can't believe it's been a year, 365 days friends.  If I can completely transform my life and the lives around me in 1 years time, there's no doubt in my mind that you can too.  What do ya say.... Are you willing to commit ONE YEAR of your life, with the chance that you just may make yourself happier, more fulfilled, FULL OF LIFE.  I made that choice.  And I'm SO glad I did.  It brought me here, talking about in hopes of inspiring others to do the same.  I've been there friends, I know how hard it can be and I've made it to the other side and I KNOW how good it can be.  If I can inspire just ONE person to take the leap, transform their life, then I know I did my part and that makes me extremely happy.  We are in this together fit friends.  Strap yourself in... it's gonna be one heck of a ride... and ya know what.... THE BEST IS YET TO COME :)
