Today Happens To Be My 30th Birthday

“Today just so happens to be my 30th birthday! I am so happy, I live in Toms River, and I get to go to the beach on a beautiful day. I am realizing that I can just slow down a bit, and enjoy the journey. Life is a process, not just a destination. I am looking forward to the next 10 years to do the things I want to accomplish in life. I am now at a point where I want to make my choices that matter for me.

“Recently I participated in a 10-week fitness challenge with my boyfriend. I did it because I was turning 30, and I was really unhappy with the way I looked, and I was thinking if I don’t make that change now, when will I ever make that change? I really stuck with it – eating healthy, exercising four times a week, no drinking, and just a complete overhaul in lifestyle. And I Iost 20 pounds! Before that, I had never lost a pound in my life! It was a real success, and I am able to feel great today on my birthday. I am really proud of that. It showed me that I can do the things that matter to me. I am really excited to do another fitness challenge which starts in a week. I am now halfway to my goal!”
