Day 1: Power

The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before.Don’t let fear of failure discourage you. Don’t let the voice of critics paralyze you—whether that voice comes from the outside or the inside. You are a great power for good. You will make the world a better place. Lift up your chin; walk tall. God loves you."D.F. Uchtdorf

I just love this quote. It's so uplifting. I love how it makes me want to be the best me I can be. It helps me not be afraid of who I want to be and the things I will have to do to make that happen.

For this 21 day challenge my goals are:
-Wake up at 6 every morning. Even if I stayed up late or woke up a lot in the middle of the night. I need a routine and it all starts with getting up in the morning.
-Stick to my exercise plan. I've made the goal to run a half marathon in June and to be able to do that I'm going to need to stick to my plan.

So far so good... My alarm went off this morning at 6 while I was feeding Rosalie. I set out all my running clothes last night so they'd be ready when I got up. After I fed her I got dressed and headed out the door.
3.16 miles and 46.16 minutes later I felt good. I felt like I got things done and I was on track for the day. I felt so good that I took my before and after pictures (that you guys will probably NEVER see... lol!) and am aiming to lose 10.4 lbs this month. My goal is to be under 200 by the end of April.


Feel free to join in on the 21 day challenge. I'd love to read what you guys do with it. :)
