Challenge Yourself to Create Change

Yesterday was a good one. It was a fairly normal day, but it didn’t involve having to await ANY sort of test results from doctors. I feel like for the past month, we’ve been awaiting some sort of test results for either Hunter or me that’s been wearing me out with anxiety. It feels nice to know that we’re all healthy and happy for now – praying that it continues! Thanks for those of you that commented yesterday regarding Hunter’s situation!

Another highlight of yesterday was teaching my 4:30 PM BodyPump class! It’s become one of my favorite classes to teach each week. The room is packed and the energy is high – it’s awesome!

Yesterday I challenged my class to choose a track and increase their weight for it. During our cool down, a few of my class members shared which track they increased their weight for and each of them said they felt stronger, yet it wasn’t as difficult as they thought it might be. I reminded them that we are often stronger than we think and we can surprise ourselves if we put our mind to it!


I think it’s easy to continue to stay within our comfort zone at times (in fitness and in life!) because it’s what we know and it’s fairly easy, right? We can give ourselves excuses up the wazoo, but when it comes down to it, we won’t see changes until we step outside that comfort zone and challenge ourselves.

If you’re wanting to see a change in your body, add in a few more repetitions, increase that weight, tack on another mile to your run, try out a different fitness class or workout – keep your body guessing! You’ve got to challenge yourself to create change.

Think about where you want to challenge yourself in your workouts this week and go for it! What do you have to lose?!

Where will YOU challenge yourself this week in your workouts?

What about your life? Is there an area where you know you should step out of your comfort zone to see growth?

Do you have an inspiring story where you challenged yourself & saw results from it? Please share! (In life or fitness!)

My New Favorite Pair of Shoes

You guys… Thank you. Your encouraging words on my post yesterday brought me to tears (along with everything else these days – ha!), and I can’t tell you enough how much your support means to me. I’m an open book, so feel free to comment or email me any time with questions.

Now, I have to tell you about my new favorite pair of shoes…

The ASICS GEL-Fit Sana, of course!

These beauties are not only stylish and come in a variety of colors, but they’re super comfortable too. They fit your foot like a glove making them light and flexible with a customized fit to YOUR foot. The GEL-Fit Sana provides a barefoot-like sensation by adapting to your feet and supporting them with the inner lining from the heel to the forefoot.

I also have fairly wide feet and somewhat of a high arch, and these shoes totally deliver in those areas. Score!

My favorite thing about these shoes is probably their versatility. I wouldn’t recommend them for any sort of running, because they’re not a running shoe. But, pretty much everything else goes in these shoes.They can easily be transformed from a street shoe to a gym shoe in no time flat. I wear them grocery shopping, to the park, to teach BodyPump, to go on walks, you name it! I guess you could say I wear them pretty much all the time? Whoops… ;)

If you want a versatile training shoe that you can wear in the gym or on the street, this is your shoe.

Alright, I’m off to a doctor’s appointment, then other than working on some BodyPump and RPM choreography, the rest of the day is pretty low key. I’m thinking a walk and some play time at the park is a must!

See ya tomorrow!
