New Year New Me: Renewed Determination

10 day rut be gone!! After meeting up for coffee with two of my fitness pals, Natasha and Michelle, last friday night, I took a look at my motivation.

What was happening to me!? I only had {then} 16 or so days left...why was I so stuck at Day47?

We chatted at length, and I talk to Dara, and we boiled it down to the fact that I was bored. Yep...I was finding Insanity boring {who says that!?}. But...I am determined to finish, so very much determined.

After spending last Saturday with so many empowering women, I took a long hard look at myself. I am so proud of what I have accomplished so far, and I know that I can finish! I absolutely can!

So what did I do? I worked. HARD.



See that determination? I write this today, after having completed Day50 and skipping the Day49 rest day. Yep! I didn't rest, that's just how determined I am. Instead of taking a rest day and risking falling into a slump, I did my first test.


Do you know what that means?? If you've done Insanity or heard about it, you probably know exactly who I'm talking about when I say the name Tanya. Well, on Wednesday I beat Ms. Tanya in Low Plank Obliques and PushUp Jacks, and matched her in Power Jumps.

AMAZING.


For the first time if my entire life, I feel like me. I feel proud of what I have accomplished, and I see the end in sight. And I even took a video of part of my workout from today, Day50.

FIFTY.

If I can push through fifty days of this craziness, you can absolutely do something...30 Day Shred, Weight Watchers, MediFast, Les Mills, Shakeology, Hip Hop Abs.

Something. Anything. Let's set a positive and glowing example for our kids to get up and move!
