Stop Saying “I Will…”

I recently heard a story that went something like this…

“There were five seagulls sitting on the seashore.  One seagull said he was going to fly away.  What’s the difference between that seagull and the other four?  Nothing unless he actually does it.”

Have you started this new year with new goals?  What is it going to take for you to move past the point of saying what you plan to do and actually doing it?

It’s only Jan. 3, not too late to make a plan you will actually follow!  Here’s where my heart has been recently…

Starting Jan. 15th the company I work with is releasing a brand new program, 80 Day Obsession.

Here’s a video to check it out…80 Day Obsession

When I was first learned of this program I was hesitant because of the title.

“Obsessed?”  I don’t want to be obsessed with fitness.  It’s a great tool and the Lord is teaching me SO.MUCH. through it, but it is not the end all be all.  But as I have heard more from Autumn (the creator of this program) and the other ladies who will be participating I have gotten super excited!

You see, the goal is not to be obsessed with working out or being a size two.  But instead to push you to DO.SOMETHING.  Challenge your limits.  See that you can be stronger than you thought.

There is so much value in making a plan and sticking to it!  That alone is a game changer.


I said adios to gym memberships a year ago and haven’t missed them!  I’ve saved time and money and quite literally brought the community and encouragement into my home.


Not to mention Trey and I love doing these workouts together!  He wouldn’t be caught dead next to me in a Zumba class.  So having the comforts of our home to encourage one another and make time for something we both love is amazing!


Over the last few days I have talked with several people who have signed up to join me and our team for the next 80 days.  I kid you not when I say EVERY.TIME. someone decides to sign up and start this journey I feel like a kid who just learned their best friend can come to their birthday party!

Consider this your warning, starting Jan. 15 I will be recording my journey for the next 80 days.  Please don’t find yourself reading my posts and feeling left out, for lack of any other way to say it, are you going to come to the party?!

Will you lose weight? YES!

Will you gain muscle? Yes!

Will it be hard on days? YES!

Will you regret it if you don’t join? YES!

In the words of Autumn, “Stop saying I will, and start saying I AM…”


I am doing 80 Day Obsession with an awesome group of friends starting Jan. 15, are you?!
