Just Do It!

I'm sitting here watching Barbara Walters 10 most fascinating people of 2012, I logged on to Facebook today to see that you can see your greatest moments from this past year, the year is wrapping up and I feel like I can't help but look back and think about how far I've come.

It's so funny to live a certain way for so long, and then a year and half later not be able to imagine what it was like to live that way. I literally can't remember what it was like not working out and taking care of my body. How often did I eat? What did I eat? When did my heart rate ever rise? I don't know!
 
 

What I do know is that I love waking up at 5am to go to the gym, eating 6-7 times a day, and having bodybuilding.com in my favorites bar. I love prepping food on Sundays (okay that might be a lie, but I do love how easy it makes the rest of the week) and I really love being able to put on a bikini and not feel like I have to suck in the whole time.

I know that before I finally made the leap and dove into the fitness world, I read blogs and thought to myself "I could never do that". How in the world would I get off the treadmill, clean out my entire kitchen and well, cook? I'm assuming there are plenty of other me's out there, so I'm going to tell you to JUST DO IT. Make it your new years resolution. Force it for 2 weeks if you have to. Just give it a try. You never know, you could be watching the Barbara Walters special this time next year thinking the same things I am. :)

  2. I love following your posts, I just wish I had as much motivation as you. I don't have any weight to lose, I need to tone what I have. Which I am finding very difficult. Good luck on your continued success.

  6. I agree. I was just thinking of this last night. A year ago I was wishing and now I am living it. I am still working hard at my goals but I have accomplished so much this year. I am excited to see what happens in 2013.
