⏩ I'M RUNNING LATE! πŸ’©! Trying to eat something, feed the dogs, get them to stop barking their heads off, shove myself out the door with 85 million things in my hands, and then trying to not drive like an asshole to make up for time. Ever have a morning like this πŸ‘†πŸ‘†??? I swear it happens at least once a week. And then anxiety sets in and my mood drastically changes. 
_________________________________________
The one thing that helped me kind of reset this morning (and no it wasn't β˜•) was sweating it out. Whether it was the endorphins or focusing on surviving leg day by the time I was done I was in a MUCH better mood. There's a lot of ways to decompress but it's important to find something that works for you... No one wants a big cranky stress ball around. What are some ways you like to decompress?

⏩DYING..... Maybe not quite... But a little 😨😡🀀. I'm not a huge fan of cardio... I actually quit running a year ago after training and running a half marathon (maybe one day I'll go back to a short jog.... Just not today). _________________________________________
But today?? I had to take SOOO many breaks. Thankfully the IG Stories are short so I can share some moves with you guys πŸ˜‚. But here's the point... I was capable of finishing today.... Just like you're capable of starting today. It might suck. You might have to take a break. You might feel like you've lost your marbles and have no idea what your name is or what day it is... Girl I get it... WHAT day is it anyways?? _________________________________________
I'm always looking for that extra push...someone who sees me dying and says... Let's keep going. Are you ready?? We can do this together..........

⏩ Did you ever have Spirit Week in high school? Ya know, when each day had a different theme? Well the last day for us was always Class Spirit day where we would all make shirts for our little group of friends with our nicknames on the back 🎽.... I distinctly remember being the Absolut Juniors πŸΈπŸ˜‚πŸ€” #teendrinkingisverybad #whowerewe 
_________________________________________
Well some of my online boot camp friends decided we'd bring back those days of Spirit Week and make some awesome gear in the spirit of kicking off our newest round.....sans nicknames... But ummm thinking we'll need to implement that soon πŸ˜‚. _________________________________________
Did you guys ever have spirit week? What were some group names or nicknames you had? ‡️

⏩ How are you spending your long weekend? It may seem silly but one of my main goals this weekend was to spend some time with these two 🐢🐢 #crazydogmom. 
_________________________________________
But in addition to these crazy two I'll be working all weekend long to make sure my clients and myself are ready for our next online boot camp. It's crazy because I've hosted so many of these but this one actually has me nervous 😨. New program and only a small idea of what to expect... Eeeeeek.

⏩How many times a day, week, or month do you do what's hard? Push yourself beyond your limits? Out of your comfort zone? 
_________________________________________
Sooooo many times this morning I wanted to quit the exercise. Move on to the next. This shit was hard. I was already sore.  It's just prep week... I'll go hard next week. Maybe I should have picked a different workout? ⬅️ Girl... Bye πŸ‘‹. I didn't quit though..... I gave it that extra push. And ya know what I learned? 
_________________________________________
Despite thinking you can't do more.... You can. Despite thinking you're not going to make it.... You will. And despite thinking you're going to throw up or pass out.... Or both.... You're going to be alright. 
_________________________________________
Try pushing yourself a little harder, further today... Because THIS is the face of a girl who's on Cloud 9 because she did.

⏩ The excitement that @ups and @amazon brought me yesterday with delivering this awaited gem in a SNOWSTORM ❄️ is beyond words! I've always heard that if you are expecting a different outcome you need to perform different actions #duh. So this year is about getting uncomfortable. 
_________________________________________
Normally I would have looked at this book with skepticism and an eye roll πŸ‘€.....ummm those aren't really my "thing". It's a little too far out THERE for me. But this year I'm about creating new experiences and making an effort to grow. Each week I'll be working on a different list and focusing on creating more joy and happiness into my life πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•. _________________________________________
Does anyone else have experience with these books? What's one thing you're going to do this MONTH to make you uncomfortable??? ⬇⬇️

⏩ Find yourself constantly asking yourself what's next?? βœ‹ ALL the time! In fact, some people would say it's my downfall. The fact that I'm always on the go, can't sit still, constantly working on a project. 
_________________________________________
I listened to this podcast πŸ“± yesterday though that MADE SENSE πŸ’‘. It's people like us who are more fulfilled by the grit, hardwork, challenges and obstacles than actually reaching our goals. Now don't get me wrong... I'm sure you love crushing that goal πŸ‘Š as much as I do but the celebration never lasts long ➑️ because it's on to the next. Crazy... But true... Right?!? _________________________________________
Just for fun on this snow day ❄️ what's one goal that you're currently hustling for in this new year ⬇⬇⬇? Maybe we can add it to our lists of what's next πŸ˜‚

⏩ I've been terrified to open this letter.....which explains why it's still sealed βœ‰. Last year on NYE I wrote it to myself. What's in it? My hopes, dreams, and goals that I was to accomplish last year. So why haven't I opened it??? ‡️
_________________________________________
I know I fell short. I know I didn't accomplish the things I said I was going to do. And I think to be faced with that.... Well it's a little scary. I almost threw it away without even reading it. But....I know that in order to grow and make a change I need to acknowledge where I went wrong and then MOVE ON. No dwelling. No wondering what could have been or what would have happened. 
_________________________________________
It's time to focus on 2018. To move forward. To set new goals... Or maybe repeat some of the ones I fell short on last year? The possibilities are endless. If you're still stuck on what you should have done or didn't do in 2017 let's move forward together πŸ‘­. Over the next couple of days I'll be sharing some ways that I'll be setting my goals for 2017 and expand on the ones I already shared in my story..... And yes I know I'm a few days late... But hey what ya gonna do 🀷

⏩ Have you ever heard the saying 🀷: You are a combination of the 5 closest people you surround yourself with?? Well what if you feel like you don't have anyone around you that has the same goals or vision? Does it mean your doomed?? 🀦 
_________________________________________
I have to admit that since starting this "little Coaching thing", the vibe of people around me has changed exponentially. It's filled with positive, uplifting, hardworking, badass babes who are all on a mission πŸ‘Š. BUT..... That doesn't mean I want more.

2018 WILL be THE year that I pay off my credit card debt πŸš«πŸ’³. I'm no financial guru, don't have a CPA or money Coach.... Yet. But what I do have are these ✌️ people right here that I'm adding to that inner circle. Because what you can't find in person you can always find in a good book πŸ“–. Now let the journey to financial freedom begin!

_________________________________________
I was scrolling through my newsfeed last night and this morning and while a lot of people were so grateful for 2017 there was an equal number of people who were ready to leave it behind and start fresh in 2018. Which one were you?? _________________________________________
Honestly speaking, I didn't wake up this morning feeling like I CRUSHED 2017 like I wanted to. But I'm not beating myself up about it. Instead a πŸ”₯ has been lit...under my butt and in my heart. I'm so ready for this year and I hope you are too! Who's with me???

I know a lot of faithful gym goers (⬅️ Formerly me πŸ˜‰) judge home workouts. Or maybe you just enjoy your time getting to see friends at your group ex classes. I know it can be a huge change to make that switch.

She's wicked smaht πŸ€“. _________________________________________
What's been holding you back from at least giving it a try? If anything.... You won't have to leave your house in subfreezing temps ❄ like today to get you sweat on πŸ˜‰

☝️Now don't get me wrong.... I'm all about #goalsetting....and plan to set some lofty goals for 2018....BUT....Here's where what's grinding my gears βš™οΈ lately ➑️ WHY do people feel the need to reinvent the wheel? I've seen a lot of people in the fitness industry advertising for New Years Resolutions as if the person someone needs to start all over and make them feel guilty about where they are. Why?

My goal is to never make anyone feel like they are/were less of a person when I first meet them. Know this.... You are fine where you are right NOW. We all start somewhere. Allow yourself the grace to acknowledge that. BUT.... If you're expecting change you need to make the first move. You've got to love yourself enough to take that chance...
