"When life gives you lemons, make lemonade."
What about when life gives you two amazing opportunities at the same time that you were planning a relaxing weekend getaway?
What do you do?
My husband and I have been planning a trip to Florida to see his family. The tickets are bought, rooms are arranged, and we are set to leave for the last few days of July.
Then we were approved for our new condo. Our move-in date? First weekend of August.
The same day we were approved I was told that Beachbody is offering a challenge; all I have to do is log my Shift Shop workouts, my shakes, and take some pictures of myself. Grand prize? $1,000 Start date? July 24th, 2017.
I could have said no to the challenge. I could have said that I have too much going on in my life to start a new workout program. But I didn't.
Because what I plan to throw at life is more important then what life throws at me.
I have already packed some provisions for the trip to Florida, and my Beachbody on Demand workouts are loaded on to my phone.
I have already mapped out space in our new condo where all our exercise equipment can go. As soon as we unload the truck I can move into my workout space and pick up where I left off.
When is the last time you chose to rearrange some major life events so that you could accomplish a goal, or complete a challenge? That choice is a powerful one... your goal means something.
In order for me to have a chance of winning, I have to document my progress every step of the way. And because my goals are bigger then my obstacles...#stephfindsaway
This is going to be a crazy three weeks.
