Getting a makeover, from the inside out.

It's about the journey, not the destination. And this journey is life long. 2016 is about me, being made new, from the inside out. It's about motivation and perseverance. It's also about struggles and defeat, disappointment and setbacks, but most importantly it's about discovery and change. The low points are when we learn and grow, so this year I'm embracing them. My setbacks will not keep me down. I will reflect on the reason I made the choices I did, figure out how I can avoid repeating ...
It's about the journey, not the destination. And this journey is life long. 2016 is about me, being made new, from the inside out. It's about motivation and perseverance. It's also about struggles and defeat, disappointment and setbacks, but most importantly it's about discovery and change. The low points are when we learn and grow, so this year I'm embracing them. My setbacks will not keep me down. I will reflect on the reason I made the choices I did, figure out how I can avoid repeating them in the future, and trust in God's plan for my life. I will celebrate my high points and successes, but learn from them as well, so as to be able to continue to succeed. I am building a stronger ME!

Hi Kelly! Thank you for the support and blog comment. I'm going out on a limb right now and saying I've learned my lesson and it won't happen again (we both know I'm lying, but let me live in the fantasy a bit longer lol). I haven't even been paying attention to my Fitbit numbers this past week. I'm focused on the bigger picture right now...getting this foot better so I can actually work out properly again! As it stands now, I have 2 more weeks of PT. I'm telling the ortho Thursday that I want to continue, so we'll see.

How's it going with you? Are you making wedding progress? Just remember, focus on the baby steps, not the big picture! You can do this, you know you can. You've done it before, you know how!
