And here we are in 2014, and January is almost over! What on earth happened to this month? It has FLOWN.
I know that we all start a new year with goals or, as people usually call them, resolutions. I have come up with some tangible goals for this year, and I am really excited to achieve them!
Before I type out the list, I wanted to let y'all know what I'm up to lately... I am in my 3rd week of WorshipU, Bethel Church's online worship school, and I am LOVING it!! The Lord is teaching me SO much through the videos. I am growing, not only as a worship leader, but as a worshipper and a daughter of God.
I work during the day (at the law firm), and work on my school work during my lunch break or after work. I've also started a new nutrition plan through Tone It Up! I am so thankful for these girls and what they do. I love eating healthy, but I have not been very consistent with it since I started working at the firm this past June... until now!! I have been packing my lunch, snacks, and eating healthy for almost 3 weeks straight now :) AND I joined a gym and have been going 4 days a week. This is a HUGE accomplishment for me since I have never been consistent in exercising before now.
Tone It Up waffles using Perfect Fit protein powder. SO yummy!
