A New Year, a New You. How to Make the Most of 2018

It’s the first blog post of 2018! Whooo!

"Merry Christmas!" I said, to every single stranger I met. I got many smiles in return, striked up a conversation between two strangers standing a meter apart who weren't talking to each other before I came along to wait at the bus stop with them, and even made a new friend named Chris who genuinely responded with a "merry Christmas!" back. I was not expecting that amount of generosity in return. I felt my lips curl up into a smile. Chris was a name I loved until I despised since meeting my housemate(who egged my door; a whole YouTube video on my channel about that) and now, love again. My heart expanded three times its size, and brimmed with gratitude…so much so I could not contain it. Suddenly, I wanted to buy the whole world coffee, and embrace each human soul. Chris and I exchanged hugs and numbers and a friendly conversation about synchronicity. I learned that he's returning to school in January. And that had I not said anything he would have already long left the bus stop to get out of the snow and just go home. Magic happens when it's snowing, when each year's December rolls around. It's truly the most wonderful time of the year. ❤

How was 2017 for you? Wait, how was your Christmas?! Can you believe that it’s already 2018? Soon, it’ll be 2020…and the 2100…3000…

I’m getting ahead of myself–I’ve still yet to answer some of these questions. But I do know what I want for the new year when school starts back up.

I love prepping my environment for success and stocking up on certain items for the new year. School starts back up in January, which means I’ll need to reorganize my schedule. I typically use my EC planner for that, and between classes I’ll snack on a Peregrine Bars (enter THEFITTY20 for 20% discount!) or Keto Adapted bar.

I’m going to be as productive as eff!

Now, let’s talk about YOU.

Let’s make 2018 the year of your life! Let’s make 2018 the best year you’ve had yet.

What did you accomplish in 2017?

What’s one thing you want to accomplish this year?

Where do you see yourself in 365 days? Who will you be with? What’re you wearing? What kind of air will you carry with you? What would be your income level?

Most importantly,


What does that look like?

Are you starting off January with a bang? We all know what happens to the gym on January 1st…and this year it starts on a MONDAY, the busiest day of the week. Does your gym get overly crowded?

Feelin the arm pump. How are ya doing, m'fitties? My arms are SHAKING. Like, I couldn't even hold a glass of water without creating ripples in it. That's when you know you've had a good workout 😙 Today's circuit involved dumbbell curls, triceps extensions, and chest presses on a bench. I have a video on how to get tank top arms on my youtube: www.youtube.com/c/thefitty if you check out the playlist "exercise with me!"💪 I burnt out my session holding plank with medicine ball. Holy crap I couldn't go more than 30 seconds; it was the hardest plank of my life.

Remember that on top of training yourself physically, it’s important to train your mentality as well. Why? Whatever the mind believes, the body will achieve. Here’s why you should invest in a coach, according to Forbes!

So let me ask you…what if you could live without limits?

What if you COULD achieve everything you’ve dreamed of and more? What if you could live without fear but instead with inspiration and love?

What’s holding you back from your most optimal, joyful, fulfilled life?
Incorporating practical, cognitive action-based practices with me, you will change your habits, achieve your dreams, and live out what you thought was impossible.

Have something on your mind? Let’s chat about it over some coffee/tea. I want to know your aspirations, your setbacks, and your strengths.

In light of the New Year, I’m offering a limited number of spots for coaching at a special discount, just for m’fitties reading this.  Let’s have a discovery chat to see if coaching is right for you—you get a free private session with myself. Enroll in coaching before spots fill up! thefittyblog@gmail.com

Remember, YOU are WORTH IT.

What are you EXCITED about that 2018 will bring?
