Everyday Determined

I am truly so blessed to be able to live my own life.  I have a husband who loves me to the end of the earth and back again, I have family who support me in everything I do and are always there to help me when I need it, I have a group of friends who make me smile, make me hope, make me happy and make me think.

I hope that in my life I'm able to do these things for other people as well, and I think that I have been doing a pretty good job so far.  Sure, sometimes things get crazy and a bad week throws me off my axis, but I am grateful that because of my family and friends I always have been able to find my way back to where I need to be.  

I spend the majority of my day with a million and a half thoughts running through my head - to-do lists, ideas for supper, thoughts on blog posts, whether the laundry is caught up or not - and a lot of times these thoughts bring me back to my own health journey I have been on.  But it's not just a health journey.  It's an entire lifestyle makeover.  Really, when I think back to six months ago I never would have imagined I would be here today, a Beachbody coach, 40 pounds lighter and fitting into clothes that I didn't think I'd ever be able to wear again. 

But again, it's not just the physical things.  I'm happier.  I'm healthier.  I'm more engaged with my own life.  I am more efficient in everything I do.  I'm less tired.  I have better focus.  I'm more driven.  I finish my to-do lists everyday because I have no desire or need to turn on the tv.  And really, at the end of the day, it all comes down to one thing - I'm happier.  

I'm not happier just because I've lost weight.  It's a million little things that have gotten me to this point, and I can't wait to see where it takes me six months, a year, five years from today.  I'm not stopping anytime soon because I have truly learned to become a different version of myself - a better version, because it's a happier, healthier life that I have now.  

And it wasn't a one-day decision that got me here.  It was an everyday, focused, meaningful series of decisions to make myself better - and it won't stop anytime soon. 


What do you want out of your life??  What are you going to do today to get yourself there?  And, after you do that, what will you do tomorrow?
