New Year New Me, CHANGES!

So, some big changes happened this past week....I mean like hugely massive lifechanging changes

First, I chopped off my hair


It's also a lovely shade of red ombre now. I absolutely love it and it's going to be great for new head shots, new wardrobe and as we go into warmer weather!


And then this happened! I finally rewarded myself with the tattoo that I've been longing for. Heather at The Taste of Ink in London, Ontario did a fantastic job! I am so happy to finally have this on me. The O is perfect and actually matches my Tiffany Notes O Pendant that Hubs got me when we had our son, and the anchor is exactly what I was looking for.

I also completed the 3 Day Shakeology cleanse this week. I started on Sunday at 160lbs, and by Wednesday morning, I was weighing in at 157lbs.

Now. This cleanse isn't for everyone. I will fully admit that there were many times of lightheadedness and there was one point where my heart got all fluttery, the black spots came and my knees gave out. My recommendation would be, other than listening to your body, to add in a salad at lunch or a morning snack of some complex carb, even if it's just some fruit and peanut butter.

Wednesday morning, I started Slim in 6 - a program designed around cardio, total body workout and resistance training that is designed to help overhaul your entire body in six weeks. I felt like it was the first time stepping into an aerobics studio; I was so uncoordinated! The moves themselves were relatively simple and easy, it was just the pace!

I am really loving the resistance training, though. It's definitely going to help shape and sculpt those long lean muscles that I know are there.

What's next in your positive change challenge?? Leave me a comment and let me know what you're up to!

Thanks Sarah! It's so important to be who we truly are - even if taking a risk like a very very public tattoo is scary!

I couldn't agree more about being who you truly are and taking risks! The tattoo is gorgeous, as is the hair!
