So it’s the first day of September! September means so much to different people. Students go back to school, it’s the unofficial start of fall, football is back! So many great things! I’ve set some pretty big goals for September and I can’t wait to crush them!
I can’t believe August flew by so quickly! I feel like I say that about every month but this month is no joke! It’s September guys! Crazy! Yesterday I went into TJMaxx and there were fall decorations everywhere! If you know me you know my favorite season of the year is fall! I love everything about it: the crisp air, the changing colors, all the amazing holidays (including my fav Thanksgiving), my birthday, pumpkin and apple spiced everything! I could go on! But let’s not forget at the beginning of the month of August I set some goals for myself! Let’s see how we did shall we?
It is Sunday night and I am watching preseason football but before that I watched Beyoncé literally slay the VMAs. Like she def should’ve been the last performer because I don’t know how anyone could follow that. She was on another level. I love her music but I think what I admire about her the most is her standards and how she aspires to have every aspect of her performances perfect! Like she was literally flawless and I’m not just saying that because I’m a huge fan. She’s never satisfied. I guarantee if you asked her if there was anything wrong with that performance she would tell you something that didn’t go exactly as she wanted. She’s like a champion quarterback. Like the Patriots. Ugh I could go on but basically she’s goals!
So this week I was reminded of how far I’ve come and how far I have to go all at the same time. It’s really interesting to see how other people live and compare it to how you live your own life.
I remember when I was younger being literally a hot mess. My days would consist of waking up, smoking pot (not saying there’s anything wrong with this I just don’t do it regularly anymore), ordering delivery (the delivery person knew me so well that she would bring treats for my dog), then getting ready for work, working 8-12 hours, then staying after work for another 2 hours getting shitfaced, passing out, repeat. I looked like this:
I had a fabulous day today! This morning our church baptized Ken B. in a beautiful ocean ceremony at Castle Island in South Boston. Then we had our regular church service. Afterwards I went home and worked out. Doing some errands and cooked my meals. Basically everything was on point. This whole week has been pretty good overall.
Happy Wednesday! It’s my rest day and I’m currently prepping some food to take with me to work. I’ve been thinking lately and I’m so excited to be leaving the US and to meet new people, try new things and experience different cultures.
What is up friends?! This morning I weighed in and I was down 6.2 lbs. *Follow me on Snapchat (ToughNads) to keep up in real time* Needless to say I am very excited! Results is usually all it takes for me to keep going so I am on cloud nine! I can’t wait to see what the next 11 weeks has in store for me.
Check out the Beachbody website if you’re interested in trying TurboFire. I am not a Beachbody coach or trying to sell you on anything. I just know I had great results the first time I did it and I know it works if you stay consistent! Also Chalene Johnson is amazing and keeps you so motivated! “You’re not tired!”
I’m going to go enjoy my dessert and hit the hay! I have more goals to crush but I can cross one of my August goals off the list (lose 5 lbs) and for that I’m happy!
