Hello Tuesday! As I said in my last post it’s been a busy two weeks! Traveling to NY was definitely the highlight… Can’t wait to go back!! Sorry for those of you that follow my instagram, but here is the last week in review through pictures. A little preshopping for New York, my new favorite ice cream (yes I eat ice cream), a run through Central Park, seeing the Black Keys, John Legend AND Foo Fighters in Central Park (amazing), city view from a NY apt, obsessing over my camera with a glass of wine, and of course a jaunt through Wall Street! I can’t say enough how much I- L-O-V-E -N-Y-C! Let’s just say it’s back work, working out and getting around to some great DIY yourself holiday projects, recipes and snacks. More to come, stay tuned!
Do you ever feel like when things are going great, they are realllllly great?! I have to say there are no complaints in my life at the moment. In the last couple of days I met with some girls from the gym who helped inspire me to come up with realistic goals that can be accomplished, but will require effort in the mean time. After all, if it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you. This week I signed up for my first half marathon that will take place on September 16. I am sooo excited for this (and nervous) as this is something I have wanted to complete for a while. Now is the time to just DO IT! This is one of the 9 goals that will be checked off the list. The following week I am heading to New York City. I traveled there twice last year, and I think it might be my favorite big city of all time. It will be a week long vacation to see some best friends. I can’t wait!
The last picture above is my current state of health and fitness due to the extreme hard work I have been dedicating at FNS from April to Now (August). I am not one for putting pictures like this up to get attention, but I am beyond amazed at the results and personal fulfillment this has brought to my life. Stepping outside your comfort zone is never easy, but I have come to the realization that you never learn from anything when it is easy. This class has not only brought results to my body, but allowed me to realize I can do anything I put my heart and effort into! Every time I struggle to get up in the morning at 6 AM, I am reminded that everyone else has to get up as well- and once I finish I feel 100 times better than when I got there. This class has defined a whole new appreciation for discipline, habit and results. I can’t wait to see what I will look like in 3 more months. Thank you to the coaches who inspire me everyday to believe in myself.
