Is this a goal for you? No, not necessarily to look like Arnold, but hey, you boys- that's all good for you if that's your goal.
I MEAN, DO YOU WANT TO WORK SO HARD AND PUSH AND PUSH AND REACH TOWARD YOUR HIGHEST POTENTIAL EVERY DAY SO YOU CAN HAVE THIS FEELING---this feeling of-- THAT'S RIGHT. I DID THIS. I DID IT! AND IT FEELS AMAZING.
I'm gonna tell you- you better watch out, because the statement above is going to ring true here, on my blog, in my life, more than EVER. I'm taking what I've started with FitFluential- with founding a company, facing my doubts and fears and diving in, leaving the comfort zone behind-- putting myself OUT THERE, and conquering and continuing to do so every damn day---
AND NOW IT'S TIME TO GIVE THAT TO MYSELF.
I cannot describe how that Rude Awakening was just the prologue I needed personally to start this new book, the new chapter in my life. I SAW THE PAST. I saw all my fears and doubts and everything I haven't done and why. Sometimes you can see it a million times before you really throw caution to the wind and do it.
Carla said something to me yesterday -- and I love how she said it. She said, "You have your pit crew all ready to support you. You will own this and you will be so proud." --
I'm being bold. I'm not being secret about my goals. I have the BEST EXPERTS in the biz in my personal pit crew, including Dr. Mike Roussell for my "diet" guidance and Todd Bumgardner designing my weekly workout plan. I am giddy with delight at the Week One plan that starts tomorrow. Carla ALWAYS has my back. You should stay tuned in the next week or so for something BIG coming from her. This woman lost 35+ pounds over 15 years ago if I'm correct-- she is a buff chiseled machine and she has kept it off. She illustrates WALKING THE WALK every dang day.
I'm putting my goals and my training and my diet out there and BOLDLY proclaiming I WILL. For the first time in months and months, probably in over a year, I am committing- but now finally knowing I have the people and pit crew in place to support my INTENTIONS and help ensure I KEEP THEM ACTIVE ---and the COMMITMENT will become a reality.
A couple people saw my photos below and wrote me saying "Wow KO you are really making progress!"-- and that made my day, but here is what is funny. And this is why I am SO EXCITED. The past three weeks my workouts- not so much. My eating- you watched my videos- BAD PLANNING, sporadic, etc. If I've made progress this year.....and I have, but all while VERY RANDOMLY working out and being your typical overworked startup freak and NOT eating when I should---- IMAGINE WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN NOW.
I'm being bold. I'm saying YOU WILL NOT BELEIVE THE CHANGE YOU WILL SEE IN ME.
And I'm here to tell you YOU CAN DO THE SAME. I don't care where you are or how far you are from your goal. NO EXCUSES. WE ALL CAN DO IT. We all can be UNSTOPPABLE.
Now. I have several things I need to share with you. First of all, last night I was starting to feel a cold coming on. It's like my BFF Dutch way up in Boston SENT ME HIS COLD. ;-) So I told myself I was going to go to bed EARLY and sleep in. No getting up and rushing, even to church. And.....truth be told, I had just gotten my new TECHNOGEL mattress delivered. If you recall, they sent me a PILLOW a while back and I shot this vlog since my hormonally imbalanced, forever HOT person just LOVED that the pillow stays COOL. Heaven:
Now. Let's enter an entire mattress made of this stuff. Underneath my pretty bed:
(notice how HIGH UP it is now too? Might need a ladder! LOL)
is this bad-boy from Technogel.
It's GEL. GEL.
My BFF and "Diet Guide Spirit Master of all things nutrition Jedi" Dr. Mike Roussell also got one. His came like 4 days before mine. He said that he was DYING at how comfortable it was. I'm gonna be honest with you all. I knew it would be nice but to think a mattress of any kind could be like earth shattering-- was NOT in my brain. I was wrong. And y'all know me. I would not OVERWHELMINGLY rave about something, I don't need to- if it wasn't true. I knew I'd have good things to say about it but PEOPLE-- I SLEPT IN UNTIL 11AM TODAY. I don't think I've done that since college. This bed is like YOU DO NOT WANT TO GET OUT OF IT. No idea how to describe the comfort. And--- also to be honest, when I FIRST climbed on it, it felt very FIRM. I told Mike I didn't think it was soft enough for me. STUPID KELLY.

Color me wanting to live in my bed now. OMG.
I may have also mentioned-- because I told you guys, how sleep evades me. I have serious problems falling asleep because of my MIND going a million miles an hour. Dr. Mike and I were part of several FitFluential peeps that got to try out Gaiam TV and they have SO MUCH MORE on the site than I thought. For me, in particular- they have MEDITATION, GUIDED MEDITATION videos in addition to yoga, fitness, cool movies, documentaries and just awesomeness. If you are into that-- if you like discovery channel stuff but more about wellness, inner peace, yoga, holistic healing and all that jazz, this is your place. Seriously. You can check it out totally free for 10 days if you don't believe me-- no credit card or auto billing happens. Seriously. Go there. See below. It gives me some Zen. Which clearly I need.
Now. It is Sunday. I am off to enjoy the day and NOT WORK. That's right. NOT WORK! And I have some more cool stuff to share this week- my workouts, my "diet" and all that goodness.
And for those of you all writing me asking about my previously featured REEBOK shoes, oh snap. Here's a $20 OFF coupon code for you to use-- valid through the end of the year.
Now what's your GO BIG OR GO HOME goals for NOW and for 2013?
