3 Years of New Years Resolutions

3 Years of New Years Resolutions

It took me a full year of working on myself to be fully inspired- but in January 2017 I had a plan, I had intention, and I was ready! I started by creating a set of important goals. I kept track of every step along the way- recipes, stories, workouts, calories, ideas. Now I realize these steps that I have been tracking can be followed by anyone.

The beautiful view of nature as far as the eye could see brought me to tears the first time I hiked up Round Valley. It was late March and the hills were completely green, wildflowers were blooming, the sky was perfect, and the trees looked like a painting. I cried for the beauty all around me, but also because of so much more. I cried because life had just thrown many difficult hurdles at me, the biggest one being that I lost my job the day before. I cried because I was exhausted. I was 250 pounds the first time I did that hike. It was so strenuous for me. However, above all, I cried because I was proud of myself.
