This week flew by for me. Anyone else? We are having one last cold snap I guess here in the South and it feels like we are back to winter so while I am hibernating tonight I thought I would kot down a few random, totally random, thoughts.

Remember when I said I needed to reevaluate some of the ways in which I currently spend my time here? So yeah, I have been doing a heck of a lot of that and also doing some different things too. New places, new faces and all of that. God, this is great!!! Why did I not ditch some of this crap sooner? I declined summer women's tennis and handed off the baton of captaining my summer mixed team. Whew... what a relief. A couple people were like wait... what are you going to do? Who is going to captain?

It's March 22 and I have officially dropped a pants size this year. Halle-freaking-lujah.  I have to say I am feeling pret-ty good about myself right now. Momentum is super high and not stopping anytime soon!

I have decided that this is also a year of yes for me. So instead of waiting for the right time I am just saying yes to a lot more because who knows if the right time will ever come. Sooooo... I put in my application to be a Whole30 Certified Coach. I was thinking maybe I should wait until I have accomplished all my health goals first but then again... nah. This part I got so why not maybe help others and create a little business around it? Hopefully I will be accepted, but I should find out in a few days. Then the process is about 4-8 weeks of testing plus a 30 day mentorship. The kicker is that The New Primal is offering 2 scholarships for the certification fees right now and that was what really sealed the deal for me. I am applying for that too so everyone keep your fingers crossed. This would be so huge and  a chance for me to really do something I am so very passionate about as another aspect of my career!

My other big news is that I applied for and was accepted to be a host for The Brunch Series Tour with Danika Brysha. This was another one of those "omg should I really do this thing" moments for me and I just said yes, doing it. And well, I'm really doing it. Danika is a curve model with IMG, Model Meals founder, wellness, body positive, selfcare coach in CA. She and her chef/boyfriend are going on the road for 8 months across the country hosting these events that focus on building the life of your dreams and finding authentic happiness. I am beyond excited to be part of this. I am sure I will be sharing more as the date approaches but if you are anywhere near Atlanta and want to come to the event at my house click here
