A few weeks ago, I mentioned that my focus here was going to shift slightly when I got back from all of my trips. I didn’t mean to hype that up at all, because the shift isn’t as exciting as it may have sounded… it’s just something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately, and I know that now is the right time to start taking action on some of those thoughts.
First, let’s backtrack a bit. Two years ago, I said I was done making excuses. After years of carrying more extra weight than I cared to admit (although I did reveal the magic number back then), I finally felt so uncomfortable in my own skin that I had to make a change. Out of nowhere, I went from being a complete couch potato to someone who was up at 5:30 a.m., out the door and at the gym by 6 a.m.
