Hola, I’m Laura!
I’m embarking on a 100 day journey to become the strongest and healthiest I’ve ever been.
For the last couple of years, I’ve been thinking, “Are my fittest and healthiest days behind me. Have I already reached my healthiest self. Is this really it.”
I’m coming up to my 26th birthday, and I don’t want another year to go by thinking and feeling this way. More than ever, I have this desire to achieve greater health.
Over the next 100 days, I will be documenting my journey and sharing with you my progress, struggles and learning moments. But most importantly, I promise to be real and honest with you. The next 100 days is going to be fun but also really tough, especially now that the days feel shorter, colder and with Christmas just around the corner… extremely busy.
But, one thing I’ve learned is that there is never a perfect time to do just about anything in life. So, on this beautiful Monday morning, November 9, 2015 my journey begins,.
I hope my journey inspires you to continue on or start your journey to better health.
Let’s do this
I am 14 days into my 100 day journey to becoming the healthiest and strongest I've ever been. I feel like time is flying by really quickly... and I'm worried that I'm not going to hit my goal of being the strongest (physically) that I've ever been. As some of you may know, I was a competitive soccer player for most of my youth so I'm up against my 18 year old body that was 130 lbs, 13% BF with a six pack. Mind you that six pack only lasted a whole 2 weeks - ha! I'm no where near that level of fitness right now, so maybe…
I really wanted to start off the 100 days strong, however, Week 1 didn't go as well as I thought it would. I started the week with a goal to hit 4 workouts, but I only got in 3. Normally I try to schedule my workouts early in the week (Monday-Friday) because I find it hard to get my workouts in on the weekend. However, this week we were busy with friends Monday through Thursday evening, and I normally workout in the evening. Looking back on it, we shouldn't have tied up so many of our evenings in a row. Four nights is a lot!…
In my previous post, A Clear Vision is the Key to Achieving your Fitness Goals, I shared with you my vision over the next 100 days and the importance of setting goals that align with your vision. To recap, my vision is to become the strongest and healthiest (mentally and physically) that I've ever been and my goals, as listed below, will provide me with the milestones to get there. Long-term Goals Crow Pose (Achieve in 30 Days) I've tried the crow pose before and I've been able to balance there for maybe 10 seconds tops. This is a yoga pose I've always wanted to get more comfortable…
