Happy New Year!

It’s a beautiful {and cold} New Year’s Day morning in Japan. What a great way to start 2015 by waking up early, working out, and having breakfast and coffee all before sunrise! I’ve never been one for New Year’s Resolutions but this year it seems appropriate. I’ve been through so many changes since being in Japan most of them have been in 2014. Change is never easy but it makes us stronger. Especially in last few months I have stepped out of my comfort zone by starting a blog, becoming a Beachbody Coach, and sharing my life on Instagram almost daily! So for 2015 I want to keep changing, keep pushing, keep growing stronger everyday, mentally, physically, emotionally… you name it! For so long I was just stuck. I blamed my unhappiness on my circumstances rather than taking action and changing how I handled those circumstances. I had to CHOOSE to be happy. I’ve learned that you can’t control everything and when things don’t go the way you hoped those are the times that you need to run to God and put your hope in Him. He may be using your circumstances to grow you and prepare you for something great! So for my New Year’s Resolution I want to just remember to live in the moment. Take each day one at a time and just realize no matter what may come I am blessed beyond measure. Here’s to 2015 and making it my best year yet!Β Happy New Year!



Benefits of Shakeology

I was skeptical about Shakeology for so long. I never thought it was a gimmick or that it didn’t do what it claims, I just thought that there were other comparable supplements out there… And that is true but only to an extent. You would have to spend hundreds of dollars on supplements to get all the ingredients that are in Shakeology. But Shakeology is only $4 per day. I know that can add up for some of you but think about replacing your daily Starbucks with Shakeology, and stop grabbing lunch at that fast food restaurant, and quit buying junk food for snacks! Surely you can invest $4 a day into your health. If you think eating healthy is expensive, just imagine the hospital bills later in life! From my personal experience, having Shakeology every day has reduced my cravings for junk food and has helped me lose weight, my skin is clear and glowy and I have more energy throughout my day.
