I jumped in headfirst without giving myself a chance to back out of something that I was unsure I could finish. I started my 75 Hard Challenge on February 1st which means that the last day of my 75 hard Challenge is April 16th. Although I have had so many people cheering me on daily, this has been the most challenging thing I have ever done. Seriously.

Once I complete today, my 75th day, I will have read 3 books that have helped me shift my mindset. I will have worked out 75 consecutive days, I will have 150 different workouts under my belt. I will have drank 75 gallons of water. It will be 75 days that I have not had a sip of alcohol or fried food/fast food. Failure isn't an option. My days revolve around my journey.

Today is my 75th day of checking myself, my integrity, my grit, and my mental health. Today is another day where I will continue to choose myself. I wanted to take a quick second to thank you. Chances are if you're reading this you probably reached out to me at some point to encourage me and cheer me on. Guess what? I'm not done yet, not even close.

I wanted to show you where I started, where I am now, and although I don't really know where I'm going, I do know my health journey isn't close to being done. What sucks about the picture below is that you can't see my mental state before and after, to me, that's the biggest change that I am forever grateful for. I guess "Legally Blonde" wasn't lying about those endorphins. Let's keep going!

If you've never heard of the 75 Hard challenge it was created by Andy Frisella who is an entrepreneur, bestselling author,  highly sought-after consultant, and public speaker. The challenge may sound doable, but let me tell you it is called 75 Hard for a reason. It's one of the most difficult things I have ever gone through. I look back on the photo I took before I stepped outside for my first outdoor walk, I don't recognize her. I kept telling myself to take it one day at a time, if I can cross off one task at a time slowly but surely I can get there.
