I finally decided to stop wasting the best years of my life wishing I looked like someone else. Instead, I have chosen to MAKE myself, and stop all the wishing and the wanting. I love Oxygen magazine, and Jamie Eason is one of my biggest fitness inspirations. For some reason on April 1, 2012 something just clicked in my brain that it was within my power to achieve physique of my dreams. Seeing that Jamie wasn't born looking like she does now made me realize we all have our own journey, and that I could begin my own. I have always been active, but deep down I think I have always been afraid to become my very best self. I think I've been afraid to truly try, and fall short. Well what do I have to lose? I appreciate my body way more now in my 30s than I ever did in my 20s, and dammit I'm going to make it the best years of my life. I want it bad, and I'm going to prove to myself that I'm worth it with every single workout.
Why I Love it
I love how it makes me feel. I love the way it makes me look. I love that it's a time for me to zone out, and focus on me, away from the stresses and demands of work and home. It gives me focus, and I have control over something that gives me back a level of confidence and clarity on so many other aspects of my life.
