2018: January Highlight Reel

As I came into 2018 I decided I wanted to change up some things on my blog, one of those being a little recap of the month before. So much stuff happens every month…it’s hard to share it all! Thus, the concept of a highlight reel was born. Here’s a look at the major moments of my January.

Pneumonia: I came into 2018 still battling pneumonia, which was such a treat (insert sarcasm). I actually was not cleared to resume workouts and my normal life until the 22nd of February, so the beginning of the month was filled with endless Netflix binges and book reading. I wish I could say it was productive, but honestly, I didn’t get much done.

Bubba: The hardest part of January was losing Bubba. We came into the year knowing it was going to happen, and it really put a dark cloud above me the first week. Bubba was such a wonderful dog, and he was such a huge part of life. The moment he died my heart shattered into a billion pieces, and I miss him every single day. I do have to say this….I could not have gone through his loss without the wonderful care of my vet, who also happens to be a friend of mine. Megan and the staff of Silver Pets Mobile Vet came to the house and allowed us to say goodbye to Bubba in the environment he loved. While it was difficult, it did bring me peace knowing that. I cannot say enough about their company.

Super Saturday: I absolutely love these quarterly business events…they allow me to network with other coaches in the area as well as embrace my love of public speaking! But……..due to my health and the pneumonia still lingering at the time of the event, I was forced to be on the sidelines. The event was still great and full of amazing business information, but I’d be lying if I told you I wasn’t thinking “Get here, April event” to get back into event planning and my element.

Donut Breakup: I was PUMPED to start a brand new high intensity program for eighty days but was sad to breakup with my favorite treat, the beautiful donut. My friends at The Vegan Doughnut Company made me a wonderful batch of farewell donuts to enjoy the day before I started, but I definitely indulged them the week leading up to my beginning the program. Since starting I have refrained from any donut consumption, and I am very proud of that! If you’ve been following my journey, you know I’ve been updating you each week and am loving it so far!

BOD Squad Launch: Our team launched our amazing free fit community, The Sparkle Bod Squad, and that has been such a wonderful thing. We all know my focus has been on helping and empowering others, so to join forces with my team to try and help even more people has been incredible. Please feel free to join us!

This year may have started off rocky, but I am hopeful the bad stuff got out of the way the beginning of the month. This month is already better, and I am happy to be back to my normal self! Until I catch you up on February, have a donut on my behalf and enjoy every minute of it!

Talk to you all soon!
