If you've been following along with me you know that the last several months have been topsy-turvy for me.

I've been struggling...with my health, with my weight, with my self-worth.

I feel frustrated and over it.

A few weeks ago I realized something.

It's time to take responsibility for where I am and quit it with the pity party.

I swear this is the way to truly make change in your life.  You've got to take responsibility.

Now- obviously there are certain things that happen to us that are beyond our control, but the secret is in the way we respond to those things.

The more I feel sorry for myself and pout like a toddler, the more frustrated I become and the less positive results I get.

So, where do we start?  If you're like me and you feel like you need to overhaul your health, your body, your fitness level, what should we do first?

Here are the things I KNOW "move the needle".  The things I've seen make a major impact for people time and time again.

STEP ONE: Take responsibility for where you are. Don't blame it on your job, your kids, your significant other, your lack of time.

Others have figured it out and you can too.

STEP TWO: Drink a sh$t ton of water.

Shoot for no less than 80 ounces a day.  I swear by this.  It totally helps to "reset" your body.

STEP THREE: Move your bloomin' ass. 

Seriously. Make it your mission to move your body EVERY DAY.

This might sound drastic, but let me explain what I'm talking about here.

I'm talking about intentionally getting some movement every day.

I NOT talking about going to the gym and pummeling your body every single day.

Try walking on most days (slow to moderate pace) and then maybe 1-2 days a week doing an intense workout.

The point of this is to create the habit of movement. Don't get too caught up in what that movement is exactly. We'll start to adjust that once we create the habit.

There you are. If you are where I am right now- wanting to start a transformation- follow along with me.  Follow the 3 steps above with me.

I have something to help inspire you during the month of February:

I would LOVE it if you could let me know how I can help you achieve your transformation.
