WHY NOT NOW.
so often, we wait until the new year to set new goals for ourselves. we blame the holidays on why we don't take care of ourselves. we use our baggy sweaters + winter clothing on why we don't workout as much.
but why not now? why not end the year stronger than when you started it? why not end 2018 HAPPIER than when it began? why not change yourself now and not make an empty promise to yourself to be different in 2019?
I'm making a big declaration and a big promise to myself and to apparently the whole world on social media LOL Monday, I'm starting a 13 week journey. A new program that is 80 days - 6 days a week, 30-60 min a day. It's called Sleigh 80 Days (it will lead right up to Christmas, hence the play on slay 😉). Some may think it's crazy ... hey, I think it's crazy, but I AM WORTH IT. .
I also need it. I'm not the type of person that can just wake up each day and be happy going about her day and just living. I'm the girl who has to work to be happy. I was diagnosed with mild depression when I was 17 and have been on different medications ever since. The one constant that has ALWAYS helped my mind: exercise. .
I was a nationally competitive gymnast for 15 years, so I was always working out. Post college, I got into a fitness routine but then when law school hit, I was "too busy". I got out of it. Then when I worked at a law firm ... I legit had no time to myself. I then quit and started my own business and really got into yoga. Then we moved to the suburbs ... then I got pregnant ... then I had a baby. Excuse after excuse after excuse. And my mom (my best friend) would always harp on me to exercise, to move, to do something bc it always helped.
Life is ALWAYS going to happen. Each day is going to pass. You can choose to step up today. You can choose to say, "I'll do it tomorrow" (you likely won't start tomorrow). The choice is always up to you. Me, I'm choosing my happiness, my well-being, myself. I'm doing it for me, for Parker, for my family and really, everyone I interact with.
