I am freaking out a little but super excited to get fit, feel good, eat right and be healthier.  It's time!  I feel like it's the missing piece to my life.  I am on this journey of self-discovery and development.  I feel incredibly grateful for my journey so far with Sacred Leadership Training that began in March and ends in December and no the start of Leadership Durham Program that ends in May.  I have my arts residency and exhibit at The Robert McLaughlin Gallery from December to January and feel so grateful for this opportunity.  So, between my personal Spiritual practice, artist practice and professional development, a very important part of my journey is missing.  That is feeling good, looking good and becoming healthier through physical fitness and better nutrition.  I know that this will catapult the momentum that I have established thus far.  I am super excited and terrified all at the same time.  I really want to succeed!  I have developed some pretty nasty eating habits and have next to no exercise on a daily.   I am 46 years old and feel my age when I can't keep up with the kids, detest my body and feel sluggish.  I want to model good eating habits and physical fitness every day to my children.  I also want to be around to meet my great grandchildren!

So, here goes!  For the next 21 days and beyond, I will do the following:

  • walk every day - I initiated a local walking group, so join us here if you would like
  • smoothies for breakfast and lunch week 1, adding nutritional proteins and veggies for dinner, then lunch(week 2), then breakfast(week 3)

I am on a serious mission and it's going to be tough, but I am going to do it.  I will do what it takes to get healthy and feel good again!

Wanna join me?  Please feel free to share you health & fitness goals, journey and results!  I want to learn and be inspired.
