2017 – January Update

Hey Strongbabes!

Here we are with the first update of the year. It’s actually kind of exciting. Moving forward, this will be a huge year for me.

This is the year I feel like my life truly gets started. I’ve been in and out of school for the past 9 years, and now I’m ready to truly pursue. I will always be a forever learner, but at the same time I am ready to part ways with my label as a student and ready to become a teacher.

This is the year I will enjoy life more than ever before. I used to feel like I lived to work, but now I work to live.

Speaking of which: last weekend Matthew and I went to Drumheller – it’s only 1.5 hours from home and they have a huge dinosaur museum. We also took our time exploring the Badlands, which is famous for all the dinosaur remains found there. A bit snowy, but just to get out of routine felt so good.


I don’t know if you can tell by this photo of me gazing off into the clouds, but I truly am just feeling content. Not because I am where I want to be, but because I feel myself getting there.

Newsflash: This will also be the year I write a book. Yes, I already know the theme. Yes, I already have the title! But no, I haven’t written a word yet. But I am feeling incredibly driven and inspired. I will keep you all posted on that further in the year.

Now: Are y’all wondering where my fitness is at? I feel like it’s been so long since I’ve talked about it!


These are the most recent physique pictures I have, showcasing the blue hair! It’s all gone now! So yes these are a couple weeks old. But, nothing has majorly changed yet.

I’m eating consciously, I’m eating smart. I’m having carbs for breakfast, and to replenish glycogen after a workout. I’m making drinking water a priority, and I’m doing more cardio. I’m on my way to shredding down and guess what? I’m not hungry. I touched on this on instagram earlier this week but I’ll say it again: health is about abundance, not restriction. I eat good, healthy food and LOTS OF IT.

Obviously like most of us I treated myself over the holidays. I have zero guilt, but I will admit that it took me a while to get my gut and skin back on track!

I have been hitting the gym more since I’ve been able to settle into my school routine. And at this point in time I’m as in love with the gym as ever. I think the biggest gains I made in 2016 were definitely in my legs. I guess hard work does pay off!

It’s been great touching base with you guys, and I’m so happy you stopped by into my corner of the internet! If you haven’t already, press the follow button if you want to be notified every time I post. I keep it pretty interesting here!


Until next time!
