Today is my birthday!!!!! AAAAAHHHH! Thinking back over the past year, all I can do is smile. 1 year ago today, I was dreaming of doing more competitions, seeing my personal training business prosper, being sponsored by sports apparel, supplement and food companies, and I set my goal of earning my Pro Card. Today, I have 7 competitions under my belt with 6 “top 5” finishes including a 5th place finish at a National level show, my personal training and coaching business has grown by leaps and bounds, I have partnerships with 3 amazing companies, I am still on my journey to my Pro Card, and I am expecting a little addition. In short, God is good, every blessing is from Him and I am so thankful of everything He has given me.
It’s so funny because I prayed to be pregnant before my 30th birthday…God is so amazing. That may sound silly but I believe in just being honest with God and telling Him your heart and that happened to be something that was on my heart! Life is never perfect but I feel so blessed right now. This week has been quite the struggle but today, nothing could get me down! When my alarm went off at 4:30am, I got right up like it was nothing, quite an accomplishment considering I could not get up any other morning this week HA! Not sure if my birthday excitement had anything to do with me jumping out of bed. Anyway, I got to the gym on time, pushed through a fantastic full body dumbbell circuit and started my 30th year of life fresh and focused!! It felt so good to be back in my normal workout time…I have to remember how good that felt and use that memory as motivation each morning.
Thankfulness is officially the word of the day. I can’t stop smiling.
