Hey, we're taking a short break. We will be back soon!

New me, who dis?

New me, who dis?

The last five months of getting 1% better each day has led me here, where I’ve designed my life in a way to allow me to tackle writing my first book (with a lot of help), I’ve officially lost 50 pounds now, I feel great and I know, without a doubt, that I don’t give up on myself anymore.

Why not me?

Finding my Reason

Finding my Reason
I’m working through my internal angst that my Pam pointed out (she’s mine, but I will share her). Inside GRIT is where we do the hard work on ourselves, but I’m going to share it with you out here so you can travel this journey with me in real time. Just know, when I’m working through things, it seems like I’m all over the place, and that’s because I am.

But if you watch me write my way through something you’ll have a better understanding of what we do in GRIT besides just work out.

Rest Don't Quit

Rest Don't Quit
Right now, I would’ve quit on myself though. But...GRIT means I won’t. That’s what will keep my 1% transformation moving forward, teeny tiny little steps at a time. Each time I rest and don’t quit is a 1% improvement.

Today I will rest, when I normally would’ve quit.

Do you have an encouraging story about when you’ve rested instead of quit? I really want to hear it.

Do the next right thing

Have you seen Frozen 2? If not, I need you to avert your eyes because I’m going to spoil it for you.

Chris bought it a few days ago and all five of us piled into the living room to watch. Cash turned all the lights off, (which I promptly turned right back on. I hate being in the dark!) because we were ready for a full on family movie night. 🎥 🍿

The first step to fixing your problem is admitting you have one, right?

This month I’m doing a nutrition challenge with some of my best GRIT girlfriends. The rules were that you could pick whatever eating plan you wanted as long as you stick with it for the whole month (I’m doing Plant Paradox 30, some are doing Whole30, some doing Keto and some Paleo). We report what we ate at the end of the day to the group.
