This new workout routine is kicking my trash like never before. I love it. My workout buddy is the best workout buddy I have ever had. She motivates me all day long. She makes me push just a little harder; and we're doing EVERYTHING; from yoga, to running, to weights, we do it all.
Tonight we lifted weights. HARD. My arms are shaking as I try to type this post. Even though I'm completely fatigued- I swear I don't know the last time I have been this happy. I am so unbelievably happy in my life right now that I'm beginning to wonder if I'm manic. Let those endorphins flow!!!
The Company called- I'm meeting with the CEO tomorrow to discuss $$$. I am 99% sure I am getting the job- and I am so excited that I literally cannot stand it. Even though it is a huge leap from what I'm doing now and super scary I have never been more confident to jump. I just know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I am doing what's right and that I will be taken care of. The Lord DOES bless us every minute- and I am feeling that love stronger than ever today. I am so grateful for every blessing I have been given, and every trial that has led me to this point.
It's not just work either- it's my diet too. Everything is on point since I cut out soda, sugar, and meat for Lent. It's my workouts- they are hard and because I'm eating right- I am blazing through them with more energy than ever before. It's also all of the amazing, ambitious, talented and beautiful women that are my friends, my support group, my confidants, and my inspiration. How lucky am I to be blessed with so many good examples in my life? Even YOU women who read and comment on my blog everyday...you lift me and inspire me with all of your goals and hard work and effort to change your lives day in and day out- and it makes me want to be better and try harder too in my own life.
I told my workout buddy tonight that I feel more right and better about this year of my life than any year before. I don't know what it is because every year I say "this is my year", but something is different about this year. I KNOW that this is the best year yet. Sure it started out kind of tough- but that doesn't stop me from believing and being excited for what is to come.
Here is the scripture I read this morning that really motivated all of this today...it's beautiful and so poignant (I believe) to what I'm going through right now.
"Awake, my sons (and/or daughter); put on the armor of righteousness. Shake off the chains with which ye are bound, and come forth out of obscurity, and arise from the dust". For those of you that are curious as to where this scripture comes from- it's from the Book of Mormon- in 2nd Nephi.
I am coming to learn that once you find your balance- you can really shoot off and do so much more than you ever anticipated. I learned this in yoga; first you find that you are just trying to balance on one leg. But then one day you realize you kind of have a little balance so you can start to feel the rest of your body and what it's doing...and you can begin to focus on that because your leg is still...and then all of the sudden your arms are reaching further ahead of you than you ever thought possible while your leg is shooting behind you and you're almost lifted off the ground. You're doing all of this- while balancing on one leg. It amazes me. My happiness is a choice- and I'm choosing it today.
