I will be the first to admit that I got sucked into the vortex of moving, change unpacking and adjusting. Then as I felt like I was finally beginning to surface I looked at the calendar and realized that in 24 hours I will be turning another year older. I will also be the first to admit that I spent about 24 hours in the “Great another year older and still I am not _____!” hole of despair. I can fill in that blank with about 15 words without batting an eyelash.
Why do we do that to ourselves? Why do we think that at a certain age we have to be in this certain spot? Why do we put all that pressure on ourselves? Is our life not meant to unfold with each choice and decision preparing us to take the next step forward…towards, what we say is, our dreams?
I have never been clearer on my purpose in life, never been clearer on the direction that I am meant to go and a majority of the time I am perfectly content. However, when it comes to this year, this birthday, with all the change I have experienced I sat in the “Woe is me” abyss and have resurfaced after a short 48 hour period.
So…with my birthday in a short 24 hours what better way to kick off another year of life than with another 30 day challenge! This one will be called “Sexy in My Skivvies!” Same guidelines will apply, but there will be an addition of some ….homework. I while back I was sent a link to the “Love Your Body Challenge” by Molly Galbraith and I never completed it, barely started it. Although the focus is on living a healthy life it is also about loving the body you are in. So here it is…
Start Date: April 11 (I would say the 10th,my actual birthday, but come on…cocktails!)
Goal: To feel more confident, more beautiful and more sexy in your skivvies!
Eating: Clean and inline with my Weight Watcher points values – feel free to choose whatever program works for you
Fitness: A minimum of 30mins of exercise a day

One uncomfortable step forward at a time!
