DECEMBER REWIND

Happy new year friends!  Did you do anything fun to celebrate last night?!  Like most of this winter break, we’ve been staying in and taking it easy, so it was an early night for us.  I will say that I’m so looking forward to 2019 and have a feeling that it’s going to be a milestone year for many of us.

In 2018, I spent a lot of time digging deeper and learning and growing and I want to continue to do that in 2019.  My heart and mind is full of intentions for the new year and I’m still getting a grip on how to piece it all together and start making goals out of it all.

FITNESS eBOOK

The exciting news is that my fitness eBook is almost ready to release into the world!  Cari and I have been hard at work on it behind the scenes and we shoot the photos for it next week!  After that, we just need to insert the photos into the book and make minor edits. Our goal is to make this book useful and effective so that you can reach your fitness goals, look amazing and feel great!  Won’t that be an awesome way to kick off 2019?!

If you want all the fitness updates, be sure to subscribe to my blog and weekend newsletter!  I’ll be offering an early discount code to my subscribers! Let me know in the comments if you’re excited for this!!

Also, I’m entering the new year with a fresh, new do! I chopped about 6 inches off my hair yesterday and it feels amazing!

      Hi Victoria, thank you! I go to Chris at M Salon and he does a foil “melting” technique so that it grows out gradually and more natural looking. His instagram is @christoph_do if you want to check him out!
